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
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
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the hardest I've laughed in years! February 8, 2008
Verified Purchase
This series (especially series one) is now runner-up for my favorite anime series. If you consider my favorite has stood since it came out in 1992, that's saying something. (Oh, All Purpose Cultural Cat-Girl Nuku-Nuku is my favorite, tied with the Nuku-Nuku TV sequel series). If you like the humor style anime this one is a must.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real Gut-buster July 31, 2009
Before I say anything else, let me state one thing: this series is great. It's one of my all-time favorites. TWHE (Those Who Hunt Elves) is about a trio of modern humans who are drawn into, and ultimately trapped, in a fantasy world where humans coexist with elves and such. Due to a minor incident during a ceremony to send them home, the spell being cast is split into five parts and tattooed on the bare flesh of five female elves. This means the travelers have to search the world for the spell one elf at a time, usually making for great gags. Now while this is the plot for both seasons, by no means does it make the series dull. Quite the opposite in fact, as the misadventures range from rescuing a town from fish pirates to a twisted parody of classic fairy tales.

Now let me say something about the content. This series, while rated for 13+, is not exactly something you would watch with the kids. At least, not if you are sensitive to foul language and sexual humor. The female elves, I've noticed, are extremely foul mouthed. For being members of an exotic and elegant race, they would make sailors blush almost every time they open their mouths. While they USUALLY only use minor swear words, there are several occasions in which stronger language is used.
As for the sexual content, there is very brief nudity. It is not explicit, just a couple of bare butt shots and I believe a couple scenes of frontal nudity (but the type of stuff you would see if you had a naked cartoon Barbie). In fact, it's done more for comedic effect than sexuality.

That's all for this guy's review, and I hope it helps.

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.
