Witch Hunter Robin is a detective drama with a twist: Witches.  Beginning with shorter cases before moving on to a longer arc that ends the series, it follows a team from the STN-J who attempt to prevent and stop harmful uses of witchcraft.

In Witch Hunter Robin, the use of witchcraft is based on genetics.  Should someone’s powers “awaken,” it usually leads to death and destruction, and so the STN-J is called in to investigate.

The art-style is great. The OST fits perfectly.  Both the Japanese voice acting and the English dub are wonderful.  Sunrise did a fantastic job with Witch Hunter Robin, and I dream of a day where we see a reboot that doesn’t end, but continues as a serial detective drama.  The early-2000s digital animation combined with the darker aesthetic (reminiscent of Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex) really works for Witch Hunter Robin.

I implore everyone that reads this to go check it out.
