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!

having been produced for American audiences (children of the 90s) the violence and sex are pretty watered-down compared what they could get away with in Japan.
but what they were able to get away (at the time) is very surprising ( references to genocide, magic. Succubi, one of the main characters basically being naked in every scene she's in)
the show has some pretty goofy plot lines, and the voice direction also makes most of the characters seem pretty goofy as well (but I think that's all part of its charm) I won't post any spoilers or synopsis but I enjoyed the storytelling for the most part. It's a shame that it never had a second season. (this set includes all 13 episodes, the entire series run)
the music and animation are standard 90's Saturday morning cartoon style, you know the usual tropes ( in episode animation that's not quite as fluid as the intro that's designed to hyped up kids at breakfast time) overall quality of animation and music is fine (a few cheap cuts here and there but nothing that should get away of your enjoyment)
video and sound quality of this this collection is very good, I didn't see any glaring up-scaling errors or audio problems.
if you've enjoyed other cartoons by DIC entertainment (now known as Cookie Jar Group) you will probably like this one. If you're just curious to see how this Western adaptation of a Japanese property turned out, then give it a to go!
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.
