Mythical Detective Loki Ragnarok Impression

Hola, quick note for you of a series you must take a look at. Distributed by ADV Films, Mythical Detective Loki Ragnarok is a fantasy adventure that some may put off due to it's child like here, but this is no kiddie series. Now you may have heard the name Loki before as he's the Norse God that cause all kinds of trouble for his fellow gods (including Thor). You may also know him from Marvel comics (think ugly ass green outfit). Anyway, this is another take on Loki, a Loki that has a good heart, a Loki banished to Earth in child form for all his trouble-making. So, Loki is on Earth and a detective, solving paranormal mysteries, which usually involves some other aspect of Norse mythology. All work is done in an attempt to get back to Valhalla. This series is good fun as we get to see different Earth based child incarnations of various gods and some of the DVD extras are pretty sweet as you're treated to a crash course in Norse Mythology, to better understand the anime. Add it all up and you have a very good show, one I cannot wait to see every month, and trust me, I had my doubts. Great opening theme, love the character design.. you must check out this series, no joke, good times. Don't take my word for it, go and watch the trailer at http://us.video.aol.com/video.index.adp?mode=1&pmmsid=1442840&_AOLFORM=w708.h344.R1.

  1. This description seems to remind me of Case Closed. Child detective, atemting to regain his original form/state. So if it's anything like CC, it will be long and cool.
