Definitely Hilarious
20 January 2001 | by MirianiSee all my reviews

This show is definitely one of the funniest anime series made in a while, yet one of the least known. It was only four episodes, yet each one had it's quirks to them, from an anemic vampire, to a group of greedy monks working to shut out the Corporation. The only thing to dislike is that it was only four 30 minute episodes long. One can only hope that perhaps with the flood of TV series remakes of older OAV series, the Phantom Quest Corporation could get some more of their oddball cases.
