Hikyou Tanken Fam & Ihrlie, or "Ruin Explorers", is a lot like something you'd find in your typical "Dragon Quest" game (starring Muttley * ). We have our fantasy setting with a similar medieval-themed world. We have our growing party of characters, with personalities, who interact while continuing their adventure. We have that adventure in place of conquering an evil. Heck, we've even got the trademark boat segment with some of the things you might expect. The other thing we have, more in tune to the king of "Dragon Quest" games, being 8, is a masterful soundtrack of nearly the same caliber (if you haven't ...

Ruin Explorers are just like the name states: Something you look at in hopes of finding a treasure but you need to first search it in order to see whether you´ll find a treasure or just piles dirt. So what does this 4 episode OVA hide inside ?

In this world Ihrie and Fam are on a search for the “Ultimate Power” in order to fulfil their wishes. ...

Story:
Stereotypical classic JRPG nonsense. Heroes are on a quest to retrieve a set of magical items that a powerful villain is searching for as well. Beyond that are plot points that become disposed of quickly and by the end of the 2 hour run-time you're comfortable not knowing the ending to a few sub-plots. The narrative doesn't take itself very seriously with a plethora of jokes hackneyed throughout, and at the points it becomes somewhat serious it's still rather basic and doesn't try anything fancy. Straight forward, but not schlock. Thank goodness. All of this comes together to become a check-list of classic fantasy adventure ...
