Mythical Detective Loki Ragnarok (Vol. 1) + Series Box
In the broadcast series Mythical Detective Loki Ragnarok (2003), the Norse god of fire has been cast out of the realm of the gods, and imprisoned in the body of an adolescent boy. Seventeen-year-old aspiring detective Mayura stumbles onto the detective agency Loki runs with his assistant Yamino and decides to work with them. Although she often fails to realize it, Mayura finds more mysteries than she bargained for. Loki fights ghosts and spirits, and his sworn enemy, the god Heimdall (also disguised as an adolescent). Transfer student/fast-food worker Narugami is actually Thor, the god of thunder; his hammer has been transformed into a bokken, a wooden practice sword. When the filmmakers get around to explaining why Loki has been exiled to Earth and made to wear a Little Lord Fauntleroy suit, Mythical Detective Loki may gel. Too often, it feels like a generic psychic anime series restaged by the cast of Case Closed. (Rated TV PG, suitable for ages 10 and older: minor violence) --Charles Solomon --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

Full Metal Panic Fumoffu,and Maburaho with the magical hi jinx. The series
follows mostly with Loki and the mystery of why he was banished to the human world by Odin and why the other norse gods are trying to kill him. Along the series Loki will get into his group a young female wannabe detective by the name of Mayura Daidoji and they are also helped by the god Thor(But known to the other humans he deals with as Narugami). The series is funny with a serious storyline built in to it but nothing to hardcore like Ghost in the Shell or Death Note. The series box is good and the extra are decent but little which I mean is that you have the standard trailers and text less intro/ending songs you do get some commentaries from the Japanese director/producers/and some of the actors.
The video is full screen with 5.1 English audio and 2.0 Japanese audio both the English and Japanese voice actors are superb for this series.
The price is a little step so all I can say is wait until either the price goes down,you are willing to pay the price,or you find it at a store near you but an any case a great series well worth it...
There is a Norse mythology theme but that doesn't really bring anything to the table.
It is not bad and it is not great, it is predictable with a few likeable characters and the dumb as a box of rocks female lead.
There is some humor but not enough to call this a comedy. All in all you will not hate this piece but you will not rave about it either.
The voice acting will be familiar and is just fine for the most part.
Loki, the god of mischief, was cast from the world of the gods down to the human world. In order to return he must collect the spirits of evil that posses human hearts. The thing is, for reasons unknown, during his stay in the human world he is bound to the form of a child. In order to hunt down his quarry, he starts a detective agency and somehow manages to get stuck with a teenage girl named Mayura as an assistant. Things aren't going to bad for Loki, until the other Norse gods and goddesses start showing up trying to kill him!
The Nose mythology was my favorite part of this series, but I also enjoyed the plot and characters. Loki is an entertaining character and Mayura an endearing one. The supporting cast is large and diverse, and it is always fun when a new god is introduced. I think this series would be most entertaining for people who know a little bit about the myths and legends this series draws from. I showed it to one friend who knew pretty much nothing about Norse mythology, and she found it cute and entertaining, but wasn't all that thrilled with it. But my sisters, who are all familiar with the Norse gods, all really enjoyed it.
If you enjoy the series and decide to hunt down the manga, be aware of two things - first, the manga this is based on is actually called Mythical Detective Loki and Mythical Detective Loki Ragnarok is the sequel (which the anime has no relation too). Second, only the first two volumes of the second series are available in the US. For some reason, Singapore released an English translation of both manga series, and it is possible to find them on eBay. I liked the manga better than the anime, but after paying international shipping + the cost of the books, it is cheaper to get the anime!
I wasn't too thrilled when she showed them to me but once
we started watching them I could not wait to get home from work
to see the next vol. I was told that Vol 6 would be coming out
sometime later in Month of July but Vol 7 would not be out til
Sept. I like it a lot better when you have so many vols to a set,
if they would have them where you can buy them together and not have to wait. This was a great set and I would highly recommend everyone who likes norse gods and mysteries to buy this. You have several gods who are trying to kill Loki the god of mischief. As an adult he was a ladysman, but Odin put him in the body of a child and the ladies just think he is cute. When Loki is in his adult body all the girls fall over themselves. Loki battles evil and keeps it in flames in the storeroom in the basement of his home and when he collects enough he hopes to return to his normal size and return home to Asgard. Odin sends many gods to try to kill him and Loki is confused as to what he has done to deserve banishment and to have to defend himself from the other gods. Several of the gods that are on earth ended up being his friend and help him when the Gods sent to kill him come after him. Really a great addition to your DVD collection!!!
