In Spurna, the Sorcerers are the rulers and tiranize the people. The people have only one hope: The Sorcerers Hunters, a group of people devoted to free Spurna from the evil sorcerers. They're Carrot (a wimp and womanizer - but at least a good person - with the power to absorb magic), Marron (Carrot's younger brother and master of oriental magic), Tira (who seems so timid but turns into a sado queen who uses a whip as weapon. She's in love with Carrot), Chocola (Tira's older sister, also in love with Carrot, and dangerous as her, who uses a strong steel cable as weapon) and Gateau (he makes bodybuilding poses all time and wants to look harsh but he's a good guy). Adventure in a sword-and-sorcery world with a lot of humor. Written by

Instead, we get a rather unoriginal and schizophrenic fantasy show, with character elements a little too reminiscent of Urusei Yatsura, with little of the charm, and a bit of S-and-M teasing to be "interesting".
Meanwhile, the storyline itself, which can actually be downright depressing, meshes quite badly with the whimsical naming scheme, and the actual animation, while serviceable, isn't great. The most exciting part of the series is the music, which is excellent, but hardly enough to carry the series.
Still, if you've had your Slayers fix, or need a follow-up to Maze Bakunetsu Jikuu, and need something to tide you over until they make an anime that does justice to the Dungeons and Dragons genre, you might want to give this show a try. But don't take it too seriously, okay?
