Trouble arises in Staccato one day. Demons show up and start to wreak havoc on the townspeople. The entire country seems to be suffering. The source of the problem is that the "barrier" which until now has kept the demons from crossing over to the human world, is weakening. The person who sustains it is losing her strength after holding it up for so many years. That person is Queen Horn of Sforzando. Hell King Bass is trying to break through the barrier and release their "supreme leader," Kestra (Orchestra). One whose power is unparalleled yet is trapped somewhere in the world of the humans.

The series is actually known to be a rather divided one among those fans who have been able to see this obscure and forgotten 1990s anime series for some major reasons related to its presentation and storytelling, that I will touch upon.

First, let me touch upon the biggest criticism of the series and one that would be hard to ...

Hamelin no Violin Hiki isn't something I was really expecting to find in the world of Anime. I should know by now, with my ten plus years surfing the Anime ocean that there are some very unique series in a broad genre such as Shounen, Slice of Life or Comedy.

The story itself does take a few episodes to pick up ...

You know, when you have a burden on your back and want it to throw it away, this is how I felt when watching "Hamelin no Violin Hiki".
