New Anime Series: Hamatora

First Episode(s) Review for: Hamtora

A group of down on their luck (cash poor) super powered bounty hunters go about their daily business…..well that’s it really…problems with money, comedy shouting, revealing of super powers…


Normal Anime Quality, but they have pushed up the brightness on the primary colours a lot to give it some ‘pop’ makes it look a bit like an American 80’s comic book.

Plot Potential:

At first sight there is nothing new here not even the super powers (though I was surprised to find sound as the primary characters super power as that is normally a bad guy type of power), I suspect we will have to wait a few episodes to see if it improves.


Nothing leaps out, its suitable for content but that’s it

Reminds me of:

This is totally a Get Backers knock off


Its fun, and a pleasant background, but it fells like it is not the work of one persons vision, which I always feel is what sets out the great Anime/Manga, a brief net search revels it to be a constructed anime or “mixed-media project” well lets give it a few episodes.
