Robin is a 15-year-old witch hunter. She is the newest member of a group that investigates homicides that may involve witchcraft. She is also the only member of the team that uses witchcraft. This makes the other members of the team kind of hesitant to work with her. She quickly shows that she is capable, and intuitive. Thanks to her, the team has become much more powerful in the pursuit of justice.
This anime is very different. Nothing about it stands out. The animation, voice acting, soundtrack, character designs and story are all very blahse. The only strong point that this series has so far is the great background animation. All of the scenery is very well done. Unfortunately, the characters are all very boring. Both their personalities, and their design. The main character has no personality. She is very soft spoken and calm. She also dislays little to no emotion. The story is also quite bland. Nothing exciting really happens. There are several bad guys in volume 1, but they are never very cool or tough.
Witch Hunter Robin has a very episodic feel to it, kind of like Cowboy Bebop. The diference is that none of the characters have any charisma, and the story is very slow moving. For 2002, the character animation is very slack. They are not very detailed. I can't believe that this volume got all those 5 star reviews. I'm very disappointed. Mind you, I am only reviewing volume 1. The series has just gotten started and there is plenty of time for it to heat up. It has a good premise, so I think that it is very possible for it to get good. So far though, it gets barely average marks all the way across the board.

Witch Hunter Robin - X-Files meets Carrie
By Stephen E. Sauls
It is the beggining of a 26 episode run for this cult hit animation series from Japan and brought to use by Sunrise and Bandi Entertainment.
Unlike most Japanese anime these DVD's are not all shoot'em up or action but tell a particular story. It is not until after episode ten that things start hopping.
Currently being aired on Cartoon Networks Adult Swim in March 2004 it is well worth getting the DVD's just for the extras which include beatifuly rendered cells of Robin herself in each DVD.
The selections and settings differ on each volume of DVD which contain 5 episodes a piece.

The limited edition is so cool, every collector should get this!
I don't know why is the Run Time mentioned here is (641 minutes), it's wrong, this is the first volume, so don't confuse it with the complete series.
As for the limited edition, it's amazing, it contains too many extras and looks cool, a great deal for every collector.
I haven't finished the series yet, but so far it's interesting, and I'm planning to get the second part.
