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".

Ok, as others have mentioned, this series has a bad rap. However, the concept is amazing! I really enjoyed this series, since I am a scientist... I loved the idea of nega-Earth and element dematerialization. The story wasn't too complex, but it had a sense of learning, which is important in its own right. The animation was alright but I really liked the music. I thought it was catchy. The characters were straightforward and sweet. There were some "twists" that arose, which made the plot more interesting. Overall, don't knock it till you try it!!

I took Element Hunters as a kid's show, and with that in mind I thoroughly enjoyed the show. It is a cut above kid's shows today and I even learned some things, with amusing characters and compelling friendships along the way. You would enjoy this show if you want one that is mostly light, but with an important goal in the end - the first episodes are quite light-hearted and stand alone, while later the show culminates without getting too heavy. Anyway, I thought Element Hunters was adorable and I would definitely want kids to watch it.

I'm one of those people who doesn't judge a show by a slow start.

Unfortunately, Element Hunters is not this kind of show. It starts off slow and stays slow. The entire time I watched the show I never felt much in terms of interest. The main reason I kept watching it was because of my 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
