"This is a very fun series made available once again by ADV Films. This is the (fourth?) release of this series and probably the best - all DVDs are collected in slimpacks housed within a nice casing. It looks great on your shelf and takes up minimal space.
But is it any good? For a mid 90s OVA, yes it is. If you have watched and enjoyed the likes of Slayers, Dragon Half or Rune Soldier, Sorcerer Hunters will be right up your alley. There is a nice balance between comedy and serious plotlines. Most episodes are fairly standalone until the end, where there is an overarching story plot. Its light fare, and definitely entertaining. Animation-wise it is alright, with some animated (transformation) sequences repeated, but that's a minor gripe.
A good price for a classic show you might have missed out on the first time around!! Check it out!"

"Even if you only get drawn in becuase of Carrots crazy actions, this anime will soon suck you in. This was actually the first anime I watched, and now we have a whole collection. Great twists and comedy will make this an hit for almost anyone, and if you're somehow bored with that wait until you see the girls final outfits!"

Well, to begin with, it is indeed a complete collection. I know that should be obvious from the title, but what some may not be at all familiar with is the case surrounding the later episodes. When released originally, the final half or so were titled "Spell Wars," Which I had all but the fourth and final tape. "Sorcerer Hunters" was only what was given to the first five tapes, and I was uncertain as to what to expect when I got this, I am moving soon you see and wanted to have the complete collection, in much less space. Happily, I must say, this covers that nicely. Every episode and indeed it does take up very little space. No particular qualm about this purchase aside from perhaps the loss of box art, or that I am trying to sell the original tapes at about a buck apiece at garage sales, still no luck though, so, just have to see what happens.
Dubbed and subbed, lovely picture and volume, no problems as far as that all goes. Indeed complete.
As far as episode reviews, the other reviews seem to cover that quite nicely, Carrot's perverted antics are very reminescent of Ataru Moriboshi from Urusei Yatsura, he is even granted a odd kind of immortality that allows him to simply shake off nearly any and all damage inflicted upon him from the girls he chases after, only when in a fight against an enemy sorcerer or otherwise(Except it seems, from the cute ones). He even seems to recover more rapidly when in the presence of a pretty girl after a beating, which is remenescent of Happosai from Ranma 1/2. Good stuff ^-^
