El Cazador de la Bruja Season 1 DVD Part 1 (Hyb)
So anyone see the first episode of this on On Demand? It was full of win! The first episode was so good that I had to check out the second episode on Funi’s online player, and it did not let me down. Just as awesome as the first episode. The pacing is just perfect! I just love how cool of series this is. The setting is great as well, Mexico was perfect for this. It feels very much like a western, but a very very good western. So that’s a good thing . The artwork is great, and the animation really shines in the gun fights. But the music is where it’s at. The music is just amazing. Really this is some great stuff. It feels like Bee Train poured a lot into this series, and it paid off. From opening theme, to ending theme both were amazing. And don’t even get me started on the incredible insert songs/background music! I have not seen much of the Bee Train’s “girls-with-guns” trilogy, but I really am digging this one and now I gata check out the rest. I’ve been slowly watching Madlax (only on episode 4 so far, gata get to watching more of that great show) , but haven’t seen Noir yet (gata buy that one day). So far I like this one the best though. It’s an amazing show, and the best part is I’m not really sure why. The dub is solid too so that’s always good. Maxey Whitehead is really good as Ellis, she makes the character feel very off and lost which seems fitting. Nadie ,the lead character, is played by Trina Nishimura who is doing an amazing job so far. I like her here much more then I did in Jyu Oh Sei. She totally fits the character in everyway.
Anyway this is a show you should be watching ;). I know I’ll be buying this on DVD ASAP. It’s an excellent show (so far).
