Trivia

Near the beginning of "No Way Out" the text on Zaizen's terminal reads (in part) "1) INSERT IDENTIFICATION CARD 2) PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING 'Hi My Name is *****. My Voice Is My Passport. Verify Me." This is the same phrase used in the movie "Sneakers" (1992) for the identity scan at the PlayTronics building. Also the text on the screen descrambles in the same way as in the film. See more »

Haruto Sakaki: Nope. I didn't say a thing. So about the Chief...
Shohei Hattori: Don't be redundant. The Chief is over at Harry's right now.
Haruto Sakaki: He is?
Shohei Hattori: He went to go check up on the girls. They're always causing problem and now we sent them over there. Since we're the ones responsible for them we must keep track of them.

Strange yet interesting.
1 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Witch Hunter Robin is an interesting show which has an X Files feel to it. It focuses more on characters and investigation than it does on high concept storytelling. Though it deals with cases on an episodic level, subplots dealing with the characters continue through out the series and it's not a good idea to watch the out of sequence.

That said it has great character design and storytelling and makes good use of limited animation. Pace is a little slow and the viewer is kept at a certain distance from the story, giving it a sort of detached but suspenseful atmosphere. Like Cowboy Bebop, which comes from the same studio, WHR is more like live action shows than animated cartoons.

It's a good show, I just wonder why it seems like it never got as big here as Cowboy Bebop or Evangelion, which have become household names. This show hit the US a little too late. Now that Western Countries have become Anime Saturated, shows like this only get noticed by lucky accident (as with me) or by word of mouth. And while it has its devoted fans, I think it deserves better recognition than it has.

It may not be for everyone, but it is definitely worth checking out.
