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 read more

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 read more

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 ?

Story: 7
The story takes us to a fantasy world where people called Ruin Explorers do their work in order to either stay alive by finding at least something valuable or they search for mythical treasures of immense power. In this world Ihrie and Fam are on a search for the “Ultimate Power” in order to fulfil their wishes. read more

Note: I watched this a few days prior to writing, so i may be a little hazy on a few details. And first review :D

I heard about this anime a long while back and in a fit of boredom and curiosity, i decided to take a look. Unfortunately the 2 hours i spent watching this could have been used to watch something more interesting.

The plot is fairly straight forward, the two main protagonists, Fam and Ihrie, are two female treasure hunters or "Ruin Explorers", on the quest to find the Ultimate Power

One of the main problems i had with this series is it's short length. read more
