Being a Witch Hunter is anything but normal. Robin has begun settling into her new life at the STNJ, practicing with her supernatural powers and making some extraordinary progress.

There is no one type of witch - Robin and the STNJ will face them all: witches who kill out of vengeance and a witch who takes a life so that another may be spared. And this time around, one of the STNJ’s targets will be someone very close to them...

4.0 out of 5 stars packaging problem for volume 2 June 6 2009
Format:DVD
One of the latter pressings by Bandai for volume 2 forgot to include the insert or print the reversible cover. Unfortunately, there is no way to detect the packaging problem without opening the dvd case.

4.0 out of 5 stars VOLUME 2 OF THIS EXCELLENT ANIME SERIES April 13 2004
Format:DVD
With the first volume of the series we got introduced to the main setting, characters and the atmosphere of the series as well as a couple of decent little action sequences. With that one bringing five episodes in one session, it's quick to move past the big setup phase and let the second volume tell some tales.
The episodic nature of Robin, at least so far, comes through strong with this volume which also has five episodes. Each one tells a story relating to the STN-J group going after different witches or probable witches and dealing with the situation. There's some light character growth when it comes to the leads, such as Robin and Amon, but overall more time is given to telling occult style mystery tales. That's not to say there isn't some personal aspect to the tales though, as a couple of them play nicely to the cast.
One episode deals nicely with some of the problems of tracking down the witches and just how subtle they can be within society. After getting a ride out of the rain, Robin learns that the driver died just a short time later in a car accident. Though she didn't really know the women, she felt some kind of worth in finding out what really happened. Amon, seeing that Robin is taking an active interest in the investigative side of their job even though there's no apparent witch connection, lets her go forward with it even though it pushes the boundaries of abuse of power.
Her investigation leads her and Amon to one of her employees home, one she visited just before the accident. The woman there is quite odd, almost unconcerned about learning about her bosses death and about things in general. All she seems to care for is the numerous dolls that are around her house.

4.0 out of 5 stars Things that go 'bump' in the night... April 3 2004
Format:DVD
In this DVD there are five more episodes of the Witch Hunter Robin series and the first two are not really as strong as the other three. I think that a lot more could of been done with the plot in 'Raindrops', because that is the kind of story that SHOULD of scared the living daylights out of me. I hate dummies and puppets and toys that move on their own, yet this episode didn't even make me twitch. And 'Simple Minds' was kind of lame. Yet the last three episodes PLUS the overall artwork, great music and perfect voice work saved it all. We get hints, in the last few episodes on the DVD, of something greater happening in the background.
Oh, and in episode eight the Witch-Healer's English voice is that of Steven Jay Blum (Spike from Cowboy Bebop and Roger Smith from The Big II)which increased my enjoyment of watching that episode. Of course, Wendee Lee and Crispin Freeman do a smashing job with their character's voices.
Few extras, just some files and notes, but the second Witch Hunter Robin DVD had five episodes (like the first one) and that more than makes up for the lack. I would suggest getting it used.

4.0 out of 5 stars Witch Hunter - A journey of discovery March 3 2004
Format:DVD
This is the second volume of the Japanese Cult Hit Witch Hunter Robin based on the story of a 15 year old girl named Robin who originally was born Japan and then raised in Italy.
Because of her special powers she is sent back to Japan to become a Witch Hunter.
This DVD contains episodes 5 thru 10, and also has both the opening and closing sequences from the show, which is currently being aired on the Cartoon Networks Adult Swim in March of 2004.
The added treat of this DVD is that you get the full and clean open and closing from the series of which only part of the original closing actually airs on AdultSwim. The opening does not even air at all.
Scene selection is easy for this DVD and as is selecting the language version you want to hear. The opening and closing songs are transscribed and this series may be unsettling for young viewers, recommend age for viewing is 15 +.
