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.

There were some "twists" that arose, which made the plot more interesting. Overall, don't knock it till you try it!!

Mixed Feelings
I'm one of those people who doesn't judge a show by a slow start. This is because it is not unusual for shows that start slow to become better and more interesting as the story becomes deeper, the characters grow on you and become interesting, and specific features of the show, like action or drama, become more intense.

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 ...

Preliminary (2/39 eps)
I've been watching anime for just under 2 years now. The first anime I watched was Naruto, and through Naruto I got to Dattebayo and through Dattebayo I got to Bleach. And Bleach led to me watching anything I possibly could.

So when I saw Dattebayo bringing out a new anime, I thought "Sweet, another good anime"

I got 2 episodes in... and I just couldn't handle it anymore.

The characters are specifically young children, as that's obviously the intended audience. But they aren't much younger than some other anime characters, which leads me to ask. How can they be so god damn annoying?

The main characters voice sounds ...
