All they have is each other.
Ellis is an amnesiac with a bounty on her head, and Nadie’s trigger finger is the only thing keeping her friend from falling into the wrong hands. They’re looking for pieces of Ellis’s past, and every mile of open highway brings the girls closer together – but their special bond is bound to be tested.
At the dusty border crossroads where ancient spirits and modern science meet, a storm of conspiracy is brewing low in the desert sky. Someone out there can explain the hazy mysteries of Ellis’s past. If she and Nadie just keep moving south, the Hunter and the Witch will get their answers soon enough.
In the fantasy-adventure El Cazador de la Bruja ("The Witch Hunter," 2007), the heroines--Ellis, a blonde waif with erratic supernatural powers, and Nadie, a bounty hunter who's sworn to protect her--ramble through a landscape reminiscent of the Mexican desert in search of the "eternal city" of Winay Marka. Ellis is an artificially created witch, the product of the sinister Project Leviathan. A lot of people are after her: Leviathan boss Douglas Rosenberg, the effete L.A., a council of hooded figures, armed soldiers, numerous bounty hunters, and a corps of blue demons. As they wander from town to town, it becomes increasingly evident that Ellis and Nadie are anime clichés. A naive dimwit unaware of her powers, Ellis recalls the title character in Key the Metal Idol; Nadie continues a long line of big-mouthed heroines in fan service costumes. Director Koichi Mashimo has an unfortunate predilection for weird camera angles, including upside-down shots, and little sense of story. In episode 4, a landslide across a road forces Nadie and Ellis to take refuge in an old cabin inhabited by the skeleton of its former owner. Two transvestite bounty hunters cut the rope bridge that links the cabin to the outside world. But at the end of the episode, Ellis and Nadie tool down the highway, having somehow gotten past the missing bridge and the landslide.

This is a good series, kind of on par with Noir. The only complaint I have about this series is the lack of blood. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Chaotic
This series has some of the best music I have heard in an anime. There is enough action and mystery to keep it from getting boring. Read morePublished on August 14, 2010 by Gregory Gudalefsky
Nothing against Funimation... or the developers of this anime... but it is pretty boring. I'm already 6 episodes on on this and I've already lost interest. Read morePublished on May 6, 2010 by maskedgamer
