Gungrave (ガングレイヴ Gangureivu?) is a Japanese animated television series based on the video game of the same name, created by Yasuhiro Nightow. The series is directed by Toshiyuki Tsuru, from a screenplay by Yousuke Kuroda, and produced by Madhouse Studios. Gungrave aired on TV Tokyo from October 6, 2003 to March 29, 2004, totaling twenty-six episodes. Like the Gungrave video game, and its sequel Gungrave: Overdose, the series' music is provided by Tsuneo Imahori; this also includes the series' opening theme.

I heard it came out on TechTV/G4TV in 2003 or 2004, and then went on hiatus until now. I'm just starting to get into it, but I'm aware there must be some that have already finished the series are have watched the previous dubbed ones.

So, are there any fans of this wonderful anime?

This is one of my favorite animes! The entire series is good, but there are a few episodes without any action in it. It's a great story about two best buds that climb the mafia ladder together. And one of them betrays the other. That's the basics of the anime, but lots and lots of action. By the way, I could have sworn that someone created a thread for this before. Anywho, I highly reccommend it!

Yeah I would've thought someone would've already created a topic so I looked back through the pages and also searched, and sure, people talked about it, but there was never any single thread I found for it.


I'm really glad to hear your reccomendation on this one biggrin.gif You've made one before for me and I ended up really liking that show. I'm also really glad to hear there's lots of action, I haven't really seen too many shows lately that had alot.

I wish I could watch Naruto. The most action I've had lately has been FMA subs and Samurai Champloo once a week.

I have seen the first two eps. It is pretty OK so far. I like the animation as well. I have the next two eps as well. This anime seems promising ^^ I shall watch more. Thanks, Celes-chon, for the reccomendation.

Brandon Heat just gets hotter and hotter as the show goes on! wub.gif And his personality gets better as well. I wasn't fond of the first couple of episodes, but it really starts to pick up once the first tragedy happens.

You know I have to totally agree with that. At first I was just like "Well he's cute" then when he was about 22, I was drooling. Then when he was about 27, he went completely opposite and had the whole business guy look going on, and at first I hated it, then I started to like it even more 'cause he looks so damn hot with glasses wub.gif It was more of a reserved hotness.

But...before I go totally fangirly, I have to say that I notice he gets more talkative as it goes on, and of course less kind in some ways but still really sweet and always remembers his friends. I didn't see much of a change in him though, besides the talkativeness.

I believe I'll finally be able to finish the series when the last few new episodes come on, on the night of July 4th biggrin.gif

I saw about 4 episodes when I was on vacation a few weeks back. It was alright for a change of pace but it didn't seem like something I would like in the long term. You can't necesarilly judge an anime on 4 episodes though.
