Whether Witch or Hunter Be

"With the talisman in her hands, Robin's powers have begun to unfold at a rapid pace. Unfortunately, the explosion of her abilities has convinced Solomon that she has changed from a hunter into a witch, and a deadly one at that. Soon a series of hunters begin to arrive in an effort to destroy Robin, but she is not all that easy to undo. Indeed, the repeated threats have convinced her to dig deeper into the mystery. With the aid of Michael Lee, and Nagira, who has become a not-quite-trusted ally, Robin begins to turn tables on the STNJ, Solomon, and the Factory.A complicated political conflict is brewing in among the witch-hunters. Administrator Zaizen has been avoiding the STNJ team, focusing instead on some special developments in Orbo research. This has caused a falling out with Solomon headquarters, and the Japanese STNJ is trying to find a balance between all the factors. None of this makes things any easier for Robin, who finds herself the object of everyone's attention. The only light in the murk is some surfacing clues to Robin's origin.A climax is building. Perhaps the one hinted at by the references to the Coven. Robin's time seems evenly divided between searching for clues and spectacular psychic battles with an array of very strange hunters. Administrator Zaizen seems to have a plan that smacks of genetic purification. And the STNJ team seems to have lost its spirit, other than Michael, who is providing more information to Robin than he is to the rest of the team.On a different note, this is the first set of episodes where I noticed a lot of reliance on computer-generated textures. Watch during the opening scenes in Robin's hideaway. I have mixed feelings about this.. The detailing adds depth, but heightens the unreality of the rest of the animation. Since the latter is beautifully done, not just the character animation, but the scene setting that manages to combine gothic and modern architecture to great effect.I haven't mentioned yet that several of the DVD's in the series - this is one of them, have interviews with the Japanese voice actors as extras. Often these shed light on the action of the episodes, beyond the illumination of the characters - in this case Dojima and Sakaki - and are worth listening to. One gets the sense that the entire effort behind Witch Hunter Robin is extremely professional and uncompromising. Certainly worth viewing."
The hunter now the hunted

"I really enjoy this series. The first few dvd's were just hunting witches but now Robin is the one that has become the hunted. The hunters that come after Robin have carisma. I enjoy the battle senes between Robin and the hunters. I am very happy with the direction the seris has taken. At first I thought that it was going to become repeditve with hunt this witch over and over. That did not happen they shifted the plot and made you keep wondering."
