From Fishy to Witchy: FUNi Grabs El Cazador

FUNimation slips another new license in: El Cazador.

El Cazador de la Bruja (literally “Witch-Hunter”) is an anime that's just a bit like Thelma and Louise...except Thelma is a witch and Louise is a bounty hunter. Or maybe it's the other way around. Anyway, it's an adventure by Kouichi Mashimo, the creator of other shows with the theme of strong relationships between women-- Noir and Madlax come to mind.


FUNimation has acquired the rights to the 26-episode series, featuring the calm but naïve Ellis, fiesty markswoman Nadie, and cast of colorful friends and enemies. They'll be releasing it in two season sets later this year, and hopefully with a bit more fanfare than this announcement was given!

I really enjoyed the show, so I'm looking forward to picking up FUNimation's release. :)

Haven't actually heard of it, but the picture immediately drew me in (she reminded me of Yoko).

She's a bit like Yoko, except perhaps a little sillier. In a couple of episodes I was disappointed to see her becoming kind of a punchline, but for the most part I love her character...probably a bit better than Ellis. She's more human. (And hotter. XD)
