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.

This is the point of El Cazador de la Bruja (much like Noir before it, albeit by very different means): to make viewers *feel* the bond between the main characters to such a degree that they could almost think themselves included in it. And on this point, for this viewer, it very much succeeded.
Coming in at a total runtime of 325 minutes, El Cazador De La Bruja Part One consists of the first thirteen episodes of the show spread across two discs (housed in a pair of thin packs within a cardboard outer sleeve). The show wears an appropriate TV MA rating due to animated violence, some suggestive material and a bit of light adult-oriented dialog.
Language options are standard sub and dub fair, which means the viewer has the option of running the original Japanese dialog vocal track (stereo) or an English dub (Dolby 5.1 Surround) and the choice of displaying English subtitles under either track.
Extras in this collection and include textless songs, a commentary track with the English production crew over Epsiode 01 (A Woman On The Run) and a crop of FUNimation trailers on the second disc.
The story goes something like this: Ellis, a young girl suspected of murdering famous physicist Heinrich Schneider, is on the run from prosecution when she is tracked down by a female bounty hunter (Nadie) in a small South American town. Instead of turning her in to collect her reward, Nadie impulsively decides to accompany the confused girl on a journey south where they hope to uncover clues about Ellis' amnesia-riddled past.
While in no danger of being mistaken for a modern day masterpiece of a plot, the journey of the bounty hunter and the amnesiac criminal are about all viewers have to cling to for the better part of the first 13 episodes.Read more ›
(I recommend the Japanese over the English dub, because the Japanese dub is great; also, this show is nowhere near MA! It's more like a tame PG-13)
As for the DVD set itself, it's very well done, with a cardboard outer case that houses a slim DVD case for each DVD; each DVD case also has a unique cover picture, as well as a unique inner picture. For its price, this DVD set is a great deal.^^
