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.

Too short lived anime OAV...
28 October 2013 | by cgrill8See all my reviews

Yugen Kaisha aka Phantom Quest Corp, I pull out once a year to watch. One of the funnier Japanese anime I own. It's dark tones, quirky characters, and decent action and comedy is par to none. All 4 episodes are great, and slowly introduces characters to the Corp of monster hunting crew. Always wished they'd go back and either finish the OAV or bring out a feature length film, to introduce another addition, and more lipstick/light saber action. Many older Japanese anime need a comeback, and this one should be at the top of the list despite it didn't even get started. The perfect mix of Ghostbusters meets Japanese anime! Pick it up if you can find a copy!
