Anime / Jewel BEM Hunter Lime

Go To

Jewel BEM Hunter Lime is a 3-episode Magical Girl OVA from 1996 adapted from a 1993 PC game series with the same name. The story begins when two denizens of the magical world, Lime and Bass, are chasing a demon who has stolen six power gems. They botch the job and allow the demon to escape into the human world where he accidentally scatters the gems over the city below. It's now up to Lime and Bass to track down the gems before they transform into monsters and start causing trouble for the inhabitants of the human world.

This anime provides examples of:

  • Blob Monster: Poogie is a little yellow blob with big eyes who can transform into anything.
  • Bunny Girl: Lime transforms into one in the first episode.
  • Cut Short: It certainly gives this impression, since they only collect three of the six gems and there's no finale.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: In his true form, Bass is a demonic-looking guy with bat wings and three red eyes. His appearance even scares a Monster of the Week so badly that it runs away in a screaming panic.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Mr. Candle successfully traps Bass by making a wax statue of a sexy woman, which Bass promptly glomps and then gets stuck to.
  • Gotta Catch 'Em All: The search for the gems drives the plot.
  • Hammerspace: Subverted; Lime does whip out a giant mallet to hit Bass with at one point, but it's a transformed Poogie.
  • Kubrick Stare: Mr. Candle pulls this off in the first OVA when he charges to fight Bass.
  • No Ontological Inertia: When a BEM is successfully captured and turned back into a gem, all the effects of its magic disappear.
  • Panty Thief: Mr. Purse, except he always asks the girls first, so he fails at the "thief" part, which Bass points out to him.
  • Pet the Dog: When Mr. Candle rescues a cat from being hit by a car and giggles when it starts nuzzling him.
  • Pointy Ears: Lime and Bass, and everyone else from their world.
  • Taken for Granite: Mr. Candle has the power to turn people into statues by coating them in wax.
