|There's a huge problem with this comic, and it's very easy to spot. The parody is too thick.
Art: A deliberate attempt at aping anime and manga style, Van Von Hunter's art comes off as....decent. There's some proportion, and the creator has decided not to parody certain aspects of anime, like the giant breasts that women tend to have. But the problem with anime is that it tends to avoid any work it doesn't need, and Van Von Hunter feels the same way. We could get more detail for the art, but sadly, none is forthcoming. And 'chibi art' almost always marks the parts that are supposed to be funny-which is too bad, because some of the good jokes get ruined by that effect.
Story: Rather minimal. VVH (shortened for ease of typing) wanders around a lot, dragging his deliberately unnamed and slightly unwilling female accomplice with him. He is chased by the Flaming Prince, who keeps trying to crush things in his hand as a demonstration of his power. Unfortunately, without a firm story to hang on, a lot of the parody falls flat, so this is a major issue with Van Von Hunter.
Characters: Van Von Hunter is a walking parody, but at least he's considered competent in his field. Even good. The girl who travels with him, on the other hand, basically acts like the reader, as she continually points out the easier and more sensible route. And the Flaming Prince....well, he's a dead-on parody of an anime villain's appearance, but his behavior is more annoying than funny. The same goes for Vengeance Joe, who isn't even that consistent of a bother.
Writing: As I said before, the parody is too thick. The best kind of parody doesn't just lampoon its subject, it also loves it. Van Von Hunter doesn't seem to have any disdain for anime in general, or the anime horror genre in particular, but it does have too much of "Huh? Look at that! Isn't that a silly thing?" A more subtle touch would improve things a lot, such as explaining why certain things are commonplace, or why townsfolk seem unable to defend themselves in any way.
Overall: I think the basic idea for Van Von Hunter is sound, but the execution needs a LOT of work. For a humorous take on anime horror, I rarely laughed. 3 out of 10.
