There are a lot of demon hunter brand anime. Devil Hunter Yohko is very much like the rest, but it is still pretty good.

[Stock statement] Yohko Momo is a typical high school student until....

Well, in Yohkos case, until she finds out that she is the 108th generation of devil hunter and there actually was a purpose to her commando grandmother's behavior at the breakfast table. Yohko would be more then happy just to be normal [naturally].

The series is everything one excepts from such a series [see Blue Seed or Devilman for other examples]... complete, later on, with a very long sword of her very own, a manager and an assistant. Even if it is a little canned, I have a hard time faulting this series.

The good persons at The Right Stuf International seem to indicate that the fourth volume in this series has a MTV sorta feel to it and not much new animation. Thus, I didn't feel a compelling reason to pick it up.
