Western Animation: City Hunters
is a short series (9 episodes of ~11 minutes each) created with an interesting mix of traditional animation design, and modern CGI animation, creating a unique asthetic. The idea was created by AXE
products (under the name of Axe Attractions) and FOX
Latin American Channels (under the name of Fox Factory).
After being dumped by his girlfriend, Axel walks in despair and is run over by Dr. Lynch, an aging casanova, member of the X Lodge, a group of men dedicated to the study of women. To apologize for the accident, Dr. Lynch offers Axel the secret of seduction and trains him to become a "seductor absolutis".
