Synopsis

An actor, a martial artist, a gun-crazy high school student, and their tank are transported from earth to a world of elves and magic. However, the spell to return them home was botched resulting in fragments of the spell being magicly imprinted onto their skin. Their solution: run around looking for elves and stripping them whereever they find them.

The decision to watch Those Who Hunt Elves was made during my viewing of the brilliant but intense Monster. After a 74-episode psychological drama/thriller laden with emotional extremes, I needed contrast. Those Who Hunt Elves definitely provided it.

The premise is simple and silly: three total strangers from modern-day Japan are accidentally summoned to a fairly standard fantasy world populated by elves and the like. An attempt to send them home goes awry and the relevant spell is split into five pieces and imprinted upon the bodies of randomly selected elves across the land. So the three Japanese visitors - one famous actress, one gun-obsessed read more

Altough it`s an very old anime, it`s realy good to watch if you want to laugh a lot.
When you grow tired of the same gerne you have been watching over and over again, watch this anime.
The story is funny, and you never know what is going to happen next.
I still need to see the second season, but whenever i need an break from the anime i`m watching, the second season will be the first thing to watch for me.
Ps. i loved the Tank (just watch the anime, you will know why)

Have you ever taken a shit in your pants while in a public place before? Or walk into a Red Lobster bathroom to find a couple awkwardly fucking each other on the mildew infested tiles?

That's kind of what it feels like watching this anime. You feel like you've just stumbled into or have unwittingly become part of an embarrassing situation and you're only options are either to slowly back out gracefully or watch it play out to it's illogical conclusion (that couple by the way, didn't really mind me being there, I just wanted a breath mint). "Those Who Hunt Elves" is an anime read more

Anime humour has never been one of my favourite aspects of the medium, and I hated it especially during the early days of my anime watching. "Those Who Hunt Elves" is a shining example of why I didn't readily take to it: the humour is too goofy, and is over-reliant on randomness and exaggeration rather than wit.

The "plot" of "Those Who Hunt Elves" involves a martial artist, an actor, and a female military otaku with a tank (please don't ask me to explain) being summoned to a fantasy land with elves and stuff. Unfortunately for them (as well as for me, as it meant read more

Overpowered humans (and a tank) from our world beat the crap out of residents of another fantasy world.

Both are fun and comical but yet are in a fantasy-based world. They also have references to our world.

Anime: Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri
Those Who Hunt Elves has pretty much the same concept as Gate. You could say that Gate is the spiritual successor to it.
