Devil Hunter Yohko (魔物ハンター妖子, Mamono Hantā Yōko?) is an anime series created by Madhouse, produced by Toho (the company famous for the Godzilla franchise), and published in North America by ADV Films. Devil Hunter Yohko was ADV Films' (then A.D. Vision) first VHS release. ADV co-founder, Matt Greenfield, said the reason Yohko was chosen as the first release was because "we wanted something that was really very unique, that people were going to say 'Woah, what was that,' because at the time no one in the US had seen anything like this." The story was adapted into a manga by Gaku Miyao. The anime was re-released to DVD in 2005, commemorating the tenth anniversary of its original release by ADV.
