Bakuretsu Hunters (Sorcerer Hunters in english) falls under the categories of Fantasy, adventure, and comedy.

This show starts off with each episode having its own plot line, but eventually once we get some back stories, the full plot comes into view. There is nothing really complicated about the story, nothing intricate, in fact it is a very linear plot line, but that doesn't mean its not interesting. And things do pick up a lot in the second half of the series (known as the Spell Wars)

Through the story, we get to know the characters very well, getting flashbacks and such so we can have read more

Bakuretsu Hunters is a fantasy story that largely stars five characters - the idiotic and perverted Carrot, the muscular Gateau, the pretty Marin, the spectacled Tira, and the red-haired Chocolate. Together they are the Sorceror Hunters, hired by a mysterious woman called only Big Mama to police the Spooner Continent.

By and large, the bulk of the series are stand alone episodes. The Hunters recieve a job from Big Mama, they go to some new town, find a new evil sorceror, kick his ass, and then move on to the next episode. These things are light and really empty. They aren't bad, they just aren't read more

I really do love this show. The comedy is very tongue and cheek but yet it has a lot of interesting characters. It also has an underlineing meaning behind most of the episodes about family ties.

We meet the characters a bit forcefully with some being rather pushy and perverted and others being rather expository. They imply that they have been traveling around a great deal already and so some things have to be worded out a bit oddly so we could understand them. I do have to wonder why the girls end up changing personalities when they take off their clothing. I’m also not sold read more

Bakuretsu Hunters holds a special place in my heart as one of the few and better shows 2 decades ago.

While more episodic than I prefer for a 26 episode show, it does have somewhat of an overarching main plot that culminates in the last few episodes. The story isn't quite there, but the fun part is watching the lovable main cast deal with the good and bad sorcerers in the world.

And best of all? The uber epic opening and ending themes, "What's up guys" and "Mask." Watching either sequence still gives me the chills.

I went back to watch the ending sequence of the final episode read more

Fantasy with lots of sorcery and adventure are the things that define these anime's. Comedy is inevitable too. Battle evil with magical powers in these action packed anime's.

Anime: Final Fantasy
the fantasy-comedy genre is overwhelmly simmilair at both of these, lots of scorcery, swordfights, re-eincarnations and lots of funny moments what can be enjoyed with the whole fammily.

Anime: Sorcerer on the Rocks
"Sorcerer on the Rocks" is a spin-off of "Sorcerer Hunters" (Bakuretsu Hunters) and is set in the same world. Both series fit into the comedy fantasy adventure genre and feature similar types of sword & sorcery action. 
reportRecommended by Kalendraf
Anime: City Hunter
The plots maybe very different and City Hunter may not have any fantasy within it, but what makes these two animes similiar is the characters and comedy. The relationship between Ryo and Kaori is exactly the same between Carrot and Chocolate/Tira. The guys are always trying to do perverted things with girls while the main female characters stop them in various ways. If your looking for this type of character cohesion and similar comedy; then these two animes are what you are looking for.
