Editorial Reviews

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.

[Note: I own the thinpak version of this anime, but it's not likely to be much different than this re-release.]

This is the last of Bee Train's "girls with guns" series of animes, the first was Noir, second was Madlax, and lastly El Cazador. I've watched all of them and it's been a blast...mapping analogies and comparing plot developments between them. It's been like listening to variations on a theme for a musical composition.

Personally, my favorite of the three is El Cazador. This time the gunslinger isn't superhuman. Yes she's an extraordinary sharpshooter, but she makes mistakes. The other half of the duo also isn't nearly so helpless as the analogous characters in Madlax were. Ellis' skills develop at a nice pace through the entire series, so I never had to roll my eyes at a character being rescued or getting in the way *yet again*. What's also nice is that the primary characters develop a comfortable relationship with each other over the course of the series.

In Noir, the main characters don't really even seem to tolerate each other until nearly the end of the series, or at least they refuse to show it. Heck they even seldom speak to each other. The story was also darker, with an insane body count(but also with a wonderful moody style). In Madlax, the primary "duo" don't even meet until after the halfway point in the series! The story is also *very* convoluted. But with El Cazador, the story is much more streamlined, some comedic moments are thrown in and the two young women actually come to care about each other slowly and naturally ....believably.

El Cazador de la Bruja is a top-notch story of Nadie, a bounty hunter, and Ellis, the 17 year-old girl she is protecting. The anime qualifies only distantly as a "girls with guns" story, since Nadie is in fact armed, but the shoot-`em-up elements are minor compared to the story of Nadie and Ellis' relationship as they wander around somewhere between the Southwestern US and Mexico being chased by a hell's-brew of wealthy government agencies, witches, love-sick mutants, and other bounty hunters all with suspicious, if not downright nasty, agendas. We quickly learn that Ellis is not what she seems to be (we never thought she was), but the focus isn't on the dramatics. So if you want a slam-bang noir-flavored gun story, watch something else - because otherwise El Cazador de la Bruja is going to bore you witless. The settings and characters nearly always involve poor people, marginally linked to society, in a picaresque road-trip tale of near-misses and near-disasters as Nadie and Ellis try to reach Wiñay Marka, a place somewhere to the South that promises to explain (Ellis thinks) all the things she has forgotten... like who she is, and why all these people are after her. Throughout, the tone and animation are strikingly realist - El Cazador has few trappings of the supernatural, but a good many images of slums, street hoodlums, and girls dressed up as Amigo Tacos waitresses, one of the jobs Nadie and Ellis take on when their money dries up... But always the focus is on Nadie and Ellis, and how they try to connect with each other emotionally and survive in a very strange world. Nothing is ever what it seems to be (we never thought it was) except, as one character says, "Anywhere you can get three meals a day is heaven." Think John Steinbeck crossed with Stand Alone Complex. El Cazador de la Bruja is first-rate. Just don't think it's a "girls with guns" story.

I happened upon this little gem while on Netflix and I'm so glad I didn't miss it. This show is certainly one that fans of shows like Noir and Madlax then El Cazador de la Bruja is a must have.

The story centers around Nadie and Ellis as they make their way through the Mexican back roads and deserts all while evading capture from CIA and trying to discover the secrets of Ellis's past. With a wild mixture of gunfights, comedic set backs, and endearing moments this show will be a great addition to both Anime collectors and those just started.

Without getting into the story too deep you will Follow Nadie and Ellis from their first, er...unique first meeting. Ellis is a young (and strange) girl who has been living with her grandmother until Nadie (ace bounty hunter and pretty young spit fire) comes to collect Ellis's bounty, or so she says. While actually working for a secret organization to help escort Ellis south, Nadie must fight off bandits, secret agents, and a rather persistent stalker all while trying to deal with Ellis's little episodes of crazy magic and flashbacks.

Will Nadie and Ellis find out Ellis's past? What is the involvement of the Witches? Can Nadie and Ellis make it to their destination in one piece while it seems the world is against them? What is Amigo Tacos? If you want to know the answers your just gonna pick up a copy for yourself.

This is the first anime I have purchased, and this review is of the packaging and extras. I viewed the entire show on a streaming video site, so I already knew I loved it and wanted to buy it. It's slow, and focuses on character relationships over action, and won't be to everyone's taste, so I recommend watching at least some of it online to see if you like it. Also, I would not rate the series TV-MA; it has some language and violence (no sex, a few shots of non-sexual nudity from behind) but not more than a PG-13 movie.

The show comes with 4 discs in a single DVD-sized case so it doesn't take up much room. I liked the cover art.
It contains both dubbed and subbed versions, so you can pick whichever you prefer.
One thing I wish was included was a set of word-for-word subtitles of the English translation (because the Japanese-translation subtitles don't always match up with the dubbing).
Not a whole lot in the way of special features: Episode 1 and 24 have a commentary track, and there are textless songs. The trailers are listed as a special feature, but personally I just wish there was a way to skip them at the beginning of each disc.

Finally there is a funny blurb on the back of the case: "As fun and dirt-filled as you could want" - Carl Kimlinger. Yep, Carl, I think that about sums it up.

So it ain't perfect, but the price I got here at Amazon (under thirty dollars) was reasonable, especially for a show I plan to watch repeatedly. Tacos tacos tacos, super tasty tacos...
