In 2029, a large scale ground sinkage occurred in the Mediterranean Sea. Chemical elements such as oxygen, carbon, gold, molybdenum, and cobalt disappeared from the earth's crust suddenly. The human population was decreased by 90% in sixty years. Researchers found out that the disappeared elements were drained into a planet "Nega Earth", located in another dimension. To save the Earth, a special team called the "Element Hunters" is organized. All of the members are under 13 years old, because young and flexible brains are needed to access "Nega Earth".

Element Hunters is a perfect example of why it's important to give every anime a fair chance to be watched thoroughly. Many a review for this anime criticizes this show unfairly for being too kiddy, cliched, or lacking other important qualities of depth, when those statements could not be further from the truth. You must then objectively observe that all the negative reviews for this show are from people who have only committed to watching about two episodes.

Is this a kiddy show? Okay, I will admit it's G rated, so obviously they avoid excessive graphic violence. Characters however actually die in this read more

This series has been seriously criticized for no real reason, this is not some action based anime like bleach or Naruto so to compare it to them are quite irational.
If all you are looking for is characters screaming at eachother while they try to chop eachother up this is not your cup of tea.

Randomly on the earth where the story takes places massives amounts of elements dissapear(only one element at a time and only in a limited area), apparently they are being transported to this alternative dimension which only kids (with a specialy developed lobe area) can detect.
What this means is that kids that can read more

Before Watching The Anime:
I thought "Hey! Finally a new shounen! I miss the good old days of ki blasts and stuff" along with a backthought of "Dattebayo is subbing it! They can't be wrong"
First Episode:
After the first episode, my excitement dived. I found the animation to be nice and clean, but the childish theme of the story really became a quick buzzkill, but I thought, if this improved and the main character gained a serious side, I could bear the 39 episodes once a week.
Sixth Episode:
I dropped this. Nothing is getting better, it will remain a kiddy element show. If you're under the age of read more

I think two years ago i attempted first episode of this anime and dropped it. Again on 6th of November 2015, i watched it till 8th episode thinking it as boring. But i watched it this time with my mom, sister and her 9 year old son and it did excited us till the last episode. Literally i hated Chemistry especially periodic table and electron configuration while i was studying 10th class. But after watching this anime i remember that silver is Ag. What i mean to say is that anyone can fall in love with chemistry, especially the topic i discussed above.

Story: It is read more
