Crystal Hunters (クリスタルハンターズ Kurisutaru Hantāzu) is the fifth anime created by Ihara Kou. The genres are magical girl, comedy, fantasy and romance.
On Earth Light Shamans who represent Light Kingdom and Dark Chimeras who represent Dark Kingdom are used to fight each other, nevertheless the two kingdoms are in peace, until Dark Kingdom stole all the 48 Special Ability Crystals from Light Kingdom and scattered them on Earth. That's why the Queen tells Light Shamans to find Crystal Hunters who will restore all of the crystals, by using the remaining ones: Cheerleader, Idol, Artist, Cook and Florist.
14 year old emotional and stubborn Mitsuko Sorano who is in love with the popular and rich boy, the captain of the school's soccer team and the leader of Light Shamans, Chiba Sakura, finds a special talent in herself: she is a brilliant cheerleader, despite of her clumsiness; which leads her to gain the force of Cheerleader's Crystal and to transform into Special Ability Cheerleader. All around, people start to lose hope in things they like to do and turn into Dark Special Abilities because of Dark Chimeras' impact on the crystals. Besides, Mitsuko starts to realize, that she is somehow connected to Akeno Akiyama, one of the Dark Chimeras and Chiba's archenemy...
