Storyline

Picture an anime version of Ghostbusters. This is as close as it gets. Ayaka Kisaragi runs the "Phantom Quest Corporation," a detective/excorcism agency which hunts down assorted monsters with the assistance of an anemic vampire, Ayaka's boy-Friday, a local police inspector, and Ayaka's lipstick, which transforms into a lightsaber.

My favorite anime
20 July 2003 | by (Lakewood, Washington) – See all my reviews

Phantom Quest Corp is a good example of a mixed genre anime. Extremely humorous but full of moments of effective horror and downright action filled. The Japanese are masters of mixed genre films and anime. My only complaint is that only four episodes were ever produced. I'd love to see the further exploits of this wonderful group of supernatural "detectives". Peretually in the red though they are.

Mix together unlikely, supernatural cases, with funny unusual heroes/heroines and the fun begins. From the main heroine who is a good mix of unlikely appearing heroine in the tradition of Sailor Moon to a medium who only works to supplement her pension. Also a 10 year old "firestarter" and a defrocked "priest/exorcist". Hysterically real at one moment and then when the going gets odd and dangerous they turn wonderfully heroic. Obviously finding in them the strength we all have to do the right thing when confronted by evil.

One thing though ,I wouldn't recommend it for kids. Partial nudity and a few sexual jokes and situations. Not to mention some really bad Karoke singing by the main heroine.
