Samurai Gun Vol. 1: Cocked And Loaded

» written by Wai Yung (Wayne) Chim [Discuss]

Welcome to the Wild Wild East. Ichimatsu hates his day job. He’s in love with a prostitute. He’s a trained killing machine. His life is a bloody mess. He is… Samurai Gun! It’s the beginning of the industrial revolution and feudal Japan is in turmoil. The ruling Shogun are wielding their abusive powers to instill fear and dominance over their oppressed subjects. A group of Samurai have banded together and with the development of new weapons and new technology, they have both the will and the hardware to stand up and fight.

The heart of a samurai, the soul of a cowboy; that is what Samurai Gun is all about. It is violent, yet entertaining while achieving all the quick paced gun unloading action. Some of the violence in this anime disgusts me, but you can guarantee Ichimatsu will set the injustice straight. His knack for justice is the only reason why he does his side job, no matter how many times he says that he does not want to kill anymore, his past haunts him and the only way to relieve of the nightmare is to eliminate what is unjust.

The show is not rated mature for no reason. There are adult situations and people getting blasted away. Some funny, some not so funny, you will know what I am talking about when this series gets released on the streets. The story is attractive; I love when the villains get what they deserve. It is also amazing how the pace seems so fast, yet you feel like you have been sitting in your seat for a while after the volume finishes playing.

ADV Films co-produced this piece, and I have to say that this is an amazing series, a very interesting series in that it hits you head on like a bulldozer doing fifty miles per hour with messed up brakes. Yeah, just imagine that, a series that grabs your attention by the throat and shakes it up quite well. I am definitely looking forward to Samurai Gun. It is wicked nice!

The Breakdown
Samurai Gun hits streets on August 16th, 2005. Look forward to it!


» The Pros
The action is most definitely a plus. The mixing of some sexy ladies is also a nice addition. The plot is entertaining. Overall the show is very attractive.

» The Cons
Some of the things that happen on the screen might not be too cool.

» Animation
Top of the line animation. Lucid, crisp and clear. Nothing much to ask for.

» Sound
The opening theme and the ending theme did not make an impression on me. The voice acting was not bad, and that goes for the English dub as well.

» Story
The story is fast and hard hitting. I did not think that Samurai and guns will work that well.

» Recommend
If you like your dose of Ninja Scroll type anime, then this is it.


» Other Information
Language: English/Japanese Dialogue with English Subtitles.

Production Sketches, Original English Trailer, 'Fun With Audio' Segment, Clean Opening And Closing Animation And Previews.

The case that I have is quite unique in that it is completely clear, even the DVD cover. I do not know if that design will carry onto the street version.
