  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

The six-episode anime OVA Devil Hunter Yohko (Mamono Hunter Yohko) follows the life of a boy-crazy sixteen-year-old schoolgirl named Yohko Mano...who also happens to banish demons from the Earth as a Magical Girl Warrior.

For centuries, the Mano family has worked as a tribe of demon slayers. Yohko's grandmother, Madoka, served as the 107th Devil Hunter; Yohko's mother, Sayoko, would have become the 108th — but since a Devil Hunter must remain a virgin until she comes of age to take on the responsibility, Sayoko's pregnancy meant the Devil Hunter lineage would continue with Yohko. While she sits on the cusp of her fated birthday and remains a virgin, Yohko could follow in her mother's footsteps — and the demons infiltrating her school would love to help her break the lineage once again.

ADV Films released all five episodes of the series (and the music video special) in the United States — it made the first OVA its very first anime release — and the series became a Gateway Series for many anime fans of the early 1990s. The series also proved somewhat more successful in the States than in Japan: the producers made the last episode with the foreign market in mind.

Do not confuse this series with Demon Fighter Kocho, a similar tale which takes place at Heian University.

Tropes used in Devil Hunter Yohko include:
