Editorial Reviews

WARNING! NAKED ELVES AHEAD! The elves of Middle Earth never faced a foe as terrifying, as determined, as down right demented as Those Who Hunt Elves. Strongman Junpei, Hollywood actress Airi, teenage Ritsuko and their T-74 tank have landed in a (different) world of elves, and the spell to send them home has run amuck and split into five pieces that appear as tattoos on the bodies of five young female elves. So they set out on a quest to strip evey elf they can lay their hands on until they find the missing spell pieces. Get ready for the wildest, craziest fantasy ever animated as Those Who Hunt Elves prove that elf stripping is more than just a job; it’s an adventure!

5.0 out of 5 stars Comedy Hunters September 18, 2005
Format:DVD
Those Who Hunt Elves is a fantasy anime with comedy theme to it. Taking place in an alternate world similar to earth. The high priestess of the elves, Celcia, was fighting against a powerful demon, so she cast a summoning spell, but instead of summoning something useful, she got three idiots from planet earth. Celcia did try to send them back, but the spell got screwed up and fragmented into different countries and etched themselves onto the bodies of elves. So the three idiots, Junpei- the martial artist, Ritsuko- sharp shooter, Airi- the movie star; join forces to hunt down elves. The funny thing is that they have to strip the elves naked to check if they have the spell fragments on their bodies. Celcia turned herself into a dog in disguise but found out that she couldn't return to original form unless she got the spell fragments too. They all traveled together on top of a battle tank that got possessed by the spirit of a cat. This series is funny, and had the right blend of action and character development. They fought against all types of creatures, including skeleton soldiers, fishmen, wizards and more. It's also funny how they try to convince the elves to strip off their clothes and their reactions. The cat-tank got excited and chased after mice and rabbits, yet was afraid of a dogs. The character design are great, I loved the elven women and the heroes were funny and skilled at fighting. I also liked how the anime was able to make fun of itself; in a couple of episodes the characters stated "...even for a fantasy show this is too corny". The only flaw is that the animation is not up to par with current anime standards. Some of the action sequences were done like still shots, instead of being fully animated. And even though the elves get nude, their bodies are blank looking and lack detail. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and very enjoyable shows May 10, 2006
By Niko
Format:DVD
Outline of the story:

Those who hunt elves, is a show that resolves around three people, from our time, who got `trapped' in a parallel universe. The reason is that a high priestess of the elves messed up a spell, during a confrontation with a demon and brought these three humans to their world. Thing is that the spell got divided into five parts and in order to reverse the spell - and return home - they have to find the five parts of the spell and put them together; which are presented, more or less, in the bodies of five elves. In order to see which elves have a piece of the spell on their bodies, they have to take their clothes off (well, basically strip). The issues that arise out of it are:
- The humans are: Junpei, a martial artist, Ritsuko, a sharp shooter and Airi, a movie star while the problem with these three is that they behave more in accordance with their own personal `ego-trip' instead of working together and solve the problem (something that they will eventually do). Something that turns out to be very funny and entertaining
- The elven high priestess has transformed into a dog and in order to reverse the transformation they have to bring all five pieces together
- They ride across the country on top of a tank that possesses a cat spirit and behaves accordingly
- They have to come up with so many excuses in order to convince the elves to get rid-off their clothes, something that is truly funny (referring to what they will come up in order to convince the elves); and if this fails, well they will strip them eventually one way or another :-P

As for the shows:

If you have watched Rune Soldier you will definitely like it. The reason is that the series are build on a similar pattern that `Rune Soldier' was build on.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
At first i didn't know what to expect from a anime that calls itself "Those who Hunt Elves" originally i expect a story set in a modern world about a bunch of people that hunt elves. I was half right to say the least. And when a anime presents the words "Warning Naked Elves Ahead" i admit this anime got me even more puzzled as to what it was about. Naked elves? guns? school girls? a odd combo indeed. But a combo that works for the most part. While certantly this isn't no 90s anime classic that Slayers is. I'm supprised how much of a favourite "Those Who hunt elves" has become. The characters are not nearly developed enough other than the fact they whana get back to Japan. And we learn some basic stuff about the characters that let us know enough about them. The whole focus of the story is three people stripping elves for spell fragments. While it's a basic plot to say for it. The first half of the animeis really engading because you whana see what crazy stuff happens andwhere the story goes. And i give the anime alot of credit for this. Not alot of animes i watch drives the viewer to keep watching, even from a basic plot. But Those who hunt elves succeeds in this area. Butletsget more indepth now shall we?

STORY: Well what can i say? it's about three people from the modern world (Our World) that get transported to this fantasy world where just about anything can happen. Along with the three main cast this Type 74 Tank gets transported somehow also along with them. And this serves as not only as a plot device, but it also acts as the groups only way of transport across this fantasy world where elves and humans and other stuff exist. And so what happens when you bring modern firepower into a fantasy setting? well alot of bunch of crazy stuff.

This is not a good series. Characters are boring and typical. The animation is ugly. The story isn't thought out well. Whatever it isn't good.
