Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

There are hundreds of thousands of companies in modern Tokyo, but only one Phantom Quest Corporation, a firm that specializes in exorcisms and troublesome spirits. Its founder and CEO is Ayaka Kisaragi, a red-haired klutz whose lipstick turns into an enchanted sword when she needs to dispatch vampires, demons, or ghosts. She's assisted by the exorcist Rokkon, the medium Madame Suimei, the innocent-looking Nanami, and Mamoru, a long-suffering computer whiz who tries to reconcile Ayaka's profligate spending with her limited income. The tone of Phantom Quest suggests Ghostbusters remade for Bette Midler--Ayaka drinks too much, oversleeps, and murders songs in karaoke settings, but she comes through in the end. Her tongue-in-cheek adventures juxtapose supernatural villains with slapstick comedy, much of it involving her put-upon beau, Detective Karino. In "Kiss of Fire," they defeat Count Dracula (whose coffin has been purchased as a novelty by a Japanese businessman) but trash Tokyo Tower in the process. The most satisfying of the four adventures is "Love Me Tender," in which the ghost of an archeologist tries to protect his former fiancée from beyond the grave. Possible sequels are hinted at in the DVD extras. Rated 13 and up for nudity, violence, sexual situations, and occasional profanity. --Charles Solomon

Product Description

Party-girl Ayaka Kisagi turned her late-night lifestyle into a business that gives new meaning to the term "graveyard shift!" While it may seem easier for Ayaka to round up troublesome spirits than to put a corporate spin on her own free-wheeling habits, she calls upon a powerful but quirky cadre of cabalists to solve each case with flair and style. Too bad style doesn't pay the bills! No matter the terrors the dark can bring, Ayaka will be sure they get a kiss good-night from Phantom Quest, Corp. -- if she can WAKE UP IN TIME!

It is too much like an appetiser, though.
Ronald Bingham
While there are the usual fight scenes the overriding theme is a wonderful sense of humor.
Elizabeth A. Keep
The animation is good quality, and the characters are fun.

I too bought this as it was [inexpensive] and sounded interesting. Loved it. It is too much like an appetiser, though.
Something other reviews have not mentioned, is that the DVD is dual coded region 1 & 4. There is also another extra on the disc (I got to it by searching for track 3, but I'm sure there's another way). It is a 20 minute extra with introductions for the characters and ten minutes watching the (Japanese) voice actors at work and play. It's titled file 0!

To be honest, I think I found this by looking at listmania lists when I was searching for other anime titles. I had never heard of it, but the reviews seemed good and the price was more than attractive so I decided to give it a shot, although I didn't really expect too much. Boy am I glad I bought it! The only thing I didn't like about it was that there were only 4 episodes. I know this review says pretty much the same thing as all the other reviews, but I figured I should throw in my two cents anyway.

Phantom Quest Corp. an action/comedy film about the drunken, karoake singing,party girl Ayaka and her friends taking on paranormal enemies, from Dracula to a possessed surgeon, mummies, and even magical monks. This Movie is a comedic romp through the world of supernatural events.

The only set backs on this flick can be that the theme songs can get a little annoying after hearing them too many times, the series is too short although it was still good. The video quality was also pretty nice, and subtitles were understandable and on que. The plot is sort of like scooby doo without the guys in masks, but more action and laughs.

All in all this film is a great buy and worth the money spent. A great addition to any anime collection.

"Phantom Quest Corp" is a great little series. There is nothing particularly original about it, nothing particularly outstanding. However, there are plenty of laughs, a nice soundtrack, and some decent stories. The animation is good quality, and the characters are fun. The stories represent the comedy/horror genre rather well.
This DVD is a good value, and worth picking up. "Phantom Quest Corp" may not be the crown jewel of your anime collection, but it is a good thing to pop in around Halloween when you need a chuckle. Recommended.

Every now and again a good series gets released and goes relatively unnoticed. It's a shame, but Phantom Quest Corp will undoubtedly get passed up for a few reasons. First, the name (which is a literal Japanese translation) simply sounds dumb. Secondly, the price point it was released at makes it appear to be a b-grade title, which it certainly isn't.
The set of stories that comprise Phantom Quest Corp are funny, whimsical and can withstand multiple viewings even if they are rather episodic. What complements the stories well are the great extra (omake) material and the animation. PQC's animation is crisp and detailed OAV quality work, not that cheap television-grade stuff. The quality and style of the work more or less gives this series its distinctive irreverent flavor.
My only complaint is that, to the best of my knowledge, they never made any more PQC episodes. This is a great obscure title that I highly recommend.

If your looking for a hard-core anime filled with nothing but nudity and violence then this is not for you. But if your looking for a video filled with comedy, violence, and demon wars then this is the video for you. Phantom Quest Corps. is about a group of demon hunters led by a clumsy-but-beautiful, horible singing woman and her side-kick who looks like hes six. Phantom Quest Corps is one of my fav. anime's.

Sure, I could have compared Phantom Quest Corp. to a lot of other animes out there, but the basic premise is the same -- we get a group of people who are working together to solve sci-fi mysteries...and there is definitely nothing wrong with that.

A friend of mine introduced me to this series, and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised overall.

If you love having vampires and mummies, among other things, show up in your anime, along with a HUGE dosage of humor to boot, then you will absolutely LOVE this show -- it manages to take dark subject matter and make it into something comical.

I think the biggest weakness in this series is definitely a coherent side story -- it seems like things are a little too hashed together at times, and a little too rushed. On top of that, half of the Phantom Quest team only shows up when actually needed to do something, such as the team exorcist and the fortune teller -- neither of these two characters really gets a strong introduction at all.

One more weakness would really be in the music as well, which I found continuously grating on my nerves -- mainly, the theme song. Most of the other music is just merely OK.

Complaints aside, this is definitely worth your time, especially for such a small price -- buy this one, you certainly won't regret it!

This show is definitaly one of the funniest anime series made in a while, yet one of the least known. It was only four episodes, yet each one had it's quarks to them, from an anemic vampire, to a group of greedy monks working to shut out the Corporation. The only thing to dislike is that it was only four 30 minutes episodes long. One can only hope that perhaps with the flood of TV series remake of older OAV series, the Phantom Quest Corporation could get some more of their oldball cases.

Rating 13 and up: nudity, violence, sexual situations, and occasional profanity.
