Demon Prince Enma

Well nothing special here in this anime.  A pair of demons come to earth to hunt bad demons.  The difference between "Bad" demons and our "heroes" being a little fuzzy here.  The girl is an ice demon and the male has a magic staff and a talking hat on his head.  They are aided by a Kappa (local frog like spirit) who has gone native and spends most of his time on his cell phone.  Our demons can also appear as gothy children as a clever disguise.

The mysteries don't have any bite even when a "vampire" is involved.  The animation has a nice retro quality but nothing special.  Worse any feeling of  terror is mollified by "comic relief" where our hero is a constant perv.  Nothing new in anime it is just something that grates very wrong here with the material.
