The Anime Network is bringing some new content onto their service today with a bit of an older title as Jewel BEM Hunter Lime is making its debut. The three episode OVA series can be found here where it’ll be available in its original Japanese language with English subtitles. The series does have a dub, which will be included with the Sentai Filmworks DVD release that’s due out on November 4th, 2014. We expect the dub will debut on The Anime Network at a later date to provide appeal for fans there as well.
Plot concept: The Magic Spheres are incredibly dangerous and powerful magical artifacts, capable of absorbing negative emotions and transforming everyday objects into monstrous BEMs (bug eyed monsters). So when a demon manages to scatter six of them through the gate between the World of Magic and Earth, someone’s got to get them back. Unfortunately, that job falls to master of disguise (and fan-servicey costumes) Lime, the sometimes monstrous and generally lecherous monster hunter Bass, and their ooey-gooey shape-shifting slime companion Poogie, none of whom are probably the best choices for a task of such monumental importance and urgency.
On the other hand, the whole situation is sort of their fault to begin with, and while their decision to infiltrate a Japanese high school may seem a bit oddly timed, at least it gets them a new friend in the form of cute but clueless schoolgirl Miyuki! Will this motley band of would be BEM hunters be up to the task of fingering panty stealing pocket purses, pinning down living syringes with nastily pointed agendas and turning up the heat on malevolent candles intent on snuffing out entire cities?
