El Cazador de la Bruja

El Cazador de la Bruja, translated from Spanish as "the Hunter of the Witch," is a supernatural anime about the adventures of an amnesiac girl, Ellis, and a female bounty hunter, Nadie. While Nadie is initially hired to track down Ellis, circumstances cause her to renege on the deal and help Ellis get her memory back, with the only clues being a compulsion to head south and a stone given to Ellis by a fortuneteller. The show's central storyline revolves around Nadie and Ellis as they travel through a Mexico-like setting to unravel the truth behind Ellis' alleged criminal history, including being blamed for the murder of one Dr. Heinz Schneider, as well as magical abilities pertinent to her incomplete "witch DNA."

The duo's travels bring them into conflict from both greedy rival bounty hunters and automotive problems; Nadie's jeep doesn't function nearly as well as it should and serves as a way to explain the frequent encounters the women encounter such as a convent of nuns, a few restaurants, a town exposed to regular biological research, and eventually a showdown with the series' recurring villain, Ricardo who seeks to fully awaken Ellis' witch abilities at any cost.
