El Cazador de la Bruja

Guest Author - Lesley Aeschliman

El Cazador de la Bruja focuses on a girl named Ellis, a fugitive with amnesia. It turns out there's a bounty on her head, because she's wanted as a suspect in the murder of Dr. Heinz Schneider. She's living in a small village with an old fortune teller.

The series opens with a maverick female bounty hunter named Nadie, who is looking for Ellis. She originally plans to take Ellis as a bounty and collect the money, but she makes a promise with the old fortune teller to look after Ellis. Nadie says she will accompany Ellis in order for her to accomplish what she needs to do, and then Nadie will take her in to collect the bounty.

In the first episode, it's shown that Ellis has non-human powers; in the episode, we see her heat a physical object just by looking at it. We also see in the first episode that Douglas Rosenberg, the main antagonist of the series, is the one looking for Ellis. He needs her for "Project LEVIATHAN." Rosenberg continues to pursue Ellis after she joins with Nadie.

By the time I finished watching the first episode of El Cazador de la Bruja, I thought that the premise of the series showed a lot of promise. The series was also written in such a way that the viewer becomes interested in both Ellis and Nadie by the end of the first episode, and become hooked on the story. Personally, this is an anime series I would be more than willing to watch more of if I can find the time.

El Cazador de la Bruja has been given a rating of TV-MA on Crackle, but by the end of the first episode, I couldn't entirely understand why. Visually, I didn't see anything that warranted this rating; the only thing I saw was occasional brief shots of blood. Perhaps there are visuals in later episodes that justify the TV-MA rating. The main thing I noticed in the English dub of the first episode was the amount of swearing that appeared in the dialogue; perhaps this is why Crackle gave the series a TV-MA rating.

Personally, I would recommend El Cazador de la Bruja to anime viewers who are 15 or 16 years of age and older. As of this writing, the series is available for viewing on the Crackle service.
