Editorial Reviews

To conquer the world, the fiery demon Pyron assembles an army of supernatural beings with magical powers: the DarkStalkers! And two of the biggest and vilest lead Pyron's army: Demitri Maximov, Lord of the Vampires, and Morrigan Aensland, a powerful succubus.

But the good guys are fighting back! Around the catwoman Felicia rallies a band of freedom-loving DarkStalkers: the merman Rikou, the werewolf Jonathan Talbain, the golem Victor von Gerdenheim, the sasquatch Bigfoot, and his nephew Hairball. To crush the rebels, Lord Demitri and Morrigan send the lunatic pharaoh Anakaris, the zombie guitarist Lord Raptor, and the cursed samurai Bishamon. Things get complicated when demon hunters Donavon Bane and Hsien-Ko decide that all DarkStalkers-both good and bad-must die!

Yet the fate of the world depends on a human, teenager Harry Grimoire. If Harry can master his secret magical legacy-and the intricacies of alien computer technology-the world might have a chance!

4.0 out of 5 stars Happy days are here again! March 27, 2006
Through some accident, I ended up acquiring both bits and pieces of television-taped episodes of Darkstalkers: the American adaptation, as well as a couple episodes of the original anime a few years back from a friend. (Possibly we were both interested in one of the voice-over artists or something; I don't really remember now.)

I realize that they are technically both based off of the video game to some degree, but I wholly recommend viewing/thinking of them as separate entities. They are, in my opinion, most enjoyable this way. The anime is action-packed, mystical, slightly violent and not a little sexually charged (the ending credits roll over a shot of one of the male leads pretty much fondling his female counterpart, for instance). The cartoon, conversely, is severely kidified; the characters are less ambiguous and more cleanly drawn, and in true DiC fashion, a twelve-year-old boy becomes more the centerpiece of the thing than any of the Darkstalker warriors.

In truth, the cartoon does a major disservice to the anime/video game when you hold them up for comparison; the cuts and changes divert the point of the entire series, and a lot of the initial 'umph' is lost in the adaptation. On the other hand, as an average 90s American toon following the popular, "normal-ish kid meets up with strange group of mystical creatures to battle zany yet dangerous enough villains and learn more about his/her own destiny" motif, it's actually pretty engaging. The voice talent is fun, the story is engaging enough, and the themes of fate and friendship and exploring one's potential are always great kids' show components.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK if you have good memories of the show... March 24, 2007
Verified Purchase
This show aired back in 1995. I remember getting up to watch it mostly because the character Morrigan (a succubus) was in a really low cut outfit. Yeah, what can I say, adolescent boys will be boys. Watching it again all these years later, the episodes were still pretty entertaining. The cast of characters is based on the Darkstalkers video game, but centers around a kid named Harry who's descended from the great wizard Merlin. Felica (the catwoman) has to help defend him from the evil Darkstalkers led by the alien Pyron. In different episodes, she gets help from various other good characters.

If you have good memories of the show, it's a nice walk down memory lane. If you haven't seen it before, it's really not worth the bother. The stories are cheesy and the animation isn't the greatest, but that didn't stop He-man from being fun. Despite low production values, Darkstalkers still manages to be quite enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars The non-anime Darkstalkers October 14, 2003
Not to be confused with the Nightwarriors-Darkstalkers' Revenge OVA series, this was a 13 episode TV series done in America based on the hit Capcom fighting games. Here, the evil alien Pyro comes to Earth to take it over. He employs evil monsters also called Darkstalkers to help him. The lord of vampires Demitri, succubus queen Morrigan, wacked out mummy Anakaris, and the zombie punk rocker Lord Raptor, all swear loyalty to him. Fortunately for mankind, there are some good Darkstalkers. The handsome merman Rikou, the Frankenstein-like Victor, and a friendly tribe of bigfoots(or is that "bigfeet"?). Also on our side is the sexy catwoman Felicia and her human companion Harry(a pre-Harry Potter boy magician). Plus, there are the vengeful demon hunters Donovan and Hsien-Ko. Despite the animation not being as great at the OVA series, this one came out first though! Plus, Bulleta from Darkstalkers 3 doesn't show up here. But despite that, its a funny show, and fans of the video games should get a kick out of it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Gimme a frickin break... January 15, 2004
An American based cartoon based off of the Darkstalkers series, but despite having the Darkstalkers name this cartoon is anything but a faithful representation of the series. Exactly what was Graz Entertainment thinking when they decided to stick an extremely stupid (to say the least) wizard, who doesn't even look like a wizard, and has absolutely no relation to the series whatsoever, in as a main character? And even worse, to put him as Felicia's love? Felicia's an exotic dancer not a princess dedicating her life to a 12 year old who probably doesn't even know what puberty is. This Harry Potter ripoff pretty much kills the quality of the cartoon right there. "Ooooh. I'm mad at you! Why don't I just call Merlin for help to defeat you! I'm Merlin I will use a flashlight to defeat you!" All the other characters have flashlights in their hands as well. This shouldn't be called Darkstalkers. It should be called Harry's Magic Show. Graz Entertainment was so stupid to make up fake names for characters that already have names. Lets take Anita, Donovan's assistant, and lets change her into a blonde haired girl named Amanda so us Americans can understand her easier. Oh, and lets change Donovan's name to Donavon. Also, the bigfoot's name is Sasquatch. Graz decided to make it Bigfoot the Sasquatch. Rikuo's a hard name to pronounce so lets change it to Rikou. Morrigan, she's from Scotland so why not give her a hardcore British accent and make her look like a barbie whose hair turned green and sprouted wings. Demitri comes next. Lets see, lets make him toss balls of orange gas all the time. What is that stuff, coming from his armpit? Read more ›
