By Marc Ruby™ HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on March 8, 2004
Slightly earlier than one would expect, the issue of the nature of Robin's powers shifts to the center of the stage. While she has always referred to her ability as her 'craft,' the viewer cannot help but se this as a bit of terminological obfuscation. What has separated Robin from the witches she hunts is that her powers are only partially awakened, limited by her training by the Church.
Suddenly Robin faces an older witch, and 'immortal' who has experienced the full weight of the world's persecution of the witchbreed - the descendants of ancient gods. Her story leaves Robin vulnerable, and a following visit by an Inquisitor, ostensible to examine another witch, something deep within her changes.
Robin becomes the target of unexpected attempts on her life. He relationship with Amon becomes more equivocal. While the episodes build a great deal of tension while developing the story line in this direction, writer Aya Yoshinaga and the rest of the creative staff are careful to lead the viewer's suspicions in many directions, stirring up as many mysteries as possible.
Time is taken to develop the rune-based system of magic more than it has been previously. This leads me to think that ritual may play an increasing part as the antagonists solidify. Right now there are countless suspects - several church brotherhoods or confraria, the STNJ, the Factory, and the witches themselves. For now we can only expect the unexpected as the intricate plot continues to unfold.
Production continues to set a high standard for anime. Both background art and animation set a neo-gothic atmosphere that is fascinating on its own. A great deal of research has gone into the creation of an alternate world where science and witchcraft continue an age-old war. The English acting and dubbing are a bit stiff, but entirely acceptable. Definitely worth viewing.

In this volume, Robin is confronted with the morality and hypocrisy of hunting witches with her powers. She begins to doubt herself. An inquisitor comes to test a possible comrade, but he may have other objectives. As Robin's relationship with the other team members seems to grow, her position with the organization seems to be in some sort of jeopardy. Could there be a conspiracy? Can Robin trust anyone anymore? Do I care enough to keep watching?

Holy cow! Why are there so many 5 star reviews for this series. The character animation is lax, the music is boring, the story moves at a snails pace, and none of the characters have any personality. Apparently it doesn't take much to entertain some people. You see this all the time with anime. Even the worst anime out there, probably 009-1, gets great reviews. I can only conjecture that there are people that love anime just because it's anime. I admit that sometimes I like shows for similar reasons. Despite these feelings, I can't bring myself to be entertained by something as mediocre as this series. Not 1 aspect of this show deserves 5 stars. I have never given up on an anime before, and I'll continue to watch it because I have already seen 14 episodes of it. But it has had plenty of time to pick up and develop. I'm afraid that this one is just a dud.

When the third volume of Robin came to my home it was a somber moment. I've never given up on a series before...but in between pre-ordering the DVD and the time it arrived (a good while thanks to the 2 month wait in between volumes)...I decided that if these episodes didn't hook me it was time to hit the eject button.
I was honestly baffled. The receipe was nothing short of fantastic on paper: the show had great art, an interesting group of characters, a solid story, and several directions it could go in. However, the food it dished out was hardly gormet. Episodes were stale and predictable, character development lacking, dialogue insultingly dumbed down, and use of conflict limitted to mundane rubbish. And yet...I keep on watching...because I believe in the's gotta pay out...doesn't it?
There are four episodes on the third volume of Witch Hunter Robin. Half way into the DVD (episodes 11 and 12), I gave up. Nothing had changed; nothing improved. I was done with the series but decided to just finish the DVD, afterall, the money was spent.
The last two episodes, starting with lucky 13, were top notch and everything I had hoped the show would become. But took 12 episodes of blandsville to bring us here. The show is finally heading in a direction that is worth watching, yet, until a whole volume is filled with episodes as good as the later parts of this DVD, I'd consider renting vs owning if you haven't already invested.

Robin Sena should have stayed in the nunnery.

Vol. 3, Inquisition, changes the entire tone of the series. No more vignettes about the detective work and apprehension of various witches. Here the episodes are all connected and do not stand alone as did previous episodes. Hang on, Robin fans, things are going to get bumpy.

In the first two episodes, Robin meets an old woman in a wheelchair who claims to have been alive during the Salem Witch trials of the late 1600's. Robin is mesmerized yet horrified by the strange tale Methusulah is spinning to her. Her carefully ordered world begins to fall apart.

In the third episode, an Inquisitor arrives. Looking for all the world like a Puritan fanatic straight from the 17th century, he proceeds to horrifyingly lure out and trap a witch who is desperately trying to be left alone. But Robin is also trapped, and committs an act that shocks her and Amon.

The last two episodes involve a conspiracy to kill Robin. And you will not believe who is at the heart of it.

Vol. 3 contains episodes 11-14: The Soul Cages, Precious Illusions, The Eyes of Truth, and Loaded Guns. This DVD is not as good a value as vol. 2 which contains five episodes. But you're past that point now, aren't you?
