“People who kill too much turn into dragons one day. Beasts that rule the land atop piles of money and fly the skies on wings of authority. They become more and more violent until they can no longer understand the language of men. We cannot allow dragons to remain in this world, even though we are the ones from which they are spawned.”

Koko Hekmatyar is a unique person, one of those people who keep equlibrium in the world, setting the delicate balance between right or wrong. As a guns merchant she encounters many chaotic situations where the line between right or wrong is easily crossed, read more

If you are reading this because you have not yet seen this anime and want to see if it is the right show for you then please keep in mind that this is my opinion and may differ from your own so please keep your own tastes in mind when you are reading this. If you have already seen this anime then you are just along for the ride.

I heard about this anime from various places but I have never heard too much about it and I wasn't particularly sure what to think of it until one day when I had nothing to do, so read more

This was probably one of the best shows that I have ever watched. This anime rocks to the very core!

The story was great. It shows the reality of what an arms dealer does. I have known some in real life. And they are indeed such kinds of persons who are in this anime. They hire people to defend them, they fuel wars, they compete with other dealers, they kill their enemies, they partner with those they can't handle and most of all they are good in economics (supply and demand lol). It was also somehow realistic in the sense that quantum computing could be dangerous. read more

What in your mind if we're talking about a series that have gunfire packed with some stunning action? Maybe you would think a hollywood movies that usually have stunning action and amazing gunfire scenes like The Raid Redemption (2012) or maybe James Bond series , how about in anime? Dont worry we have like that too, its called Jormungand.


The story in jormungand is about Jonah, a boy who fought in middle east as the child soldier is being recruited as Koko's companions. Koko itself is an arms dealer who travels all around the world for selling the guns. As the arms dealer, Koko must have read more

Black Lagoon and Jormungand share NUMEROUS similarities. The emphasis on dominant, psychotic women, both in the physical AND mental arenas, is one. A heavy focus on guns is another. And perhaps the most obvious is that both series revolve around mercenary crews that make money via smuggling goods. I made a manga recommendation based on this years ago. But what I find far more striking, after finishing the anime, is how they differ.

Lagoon sets an infectiously dark mood from the outset with its 'slums of the world' setting. It's set in the real world but the fictional city everything is based out of  read more

Action-filled, female main characters and gun-filled. Has crazy characters, silent characters etc. You should really look it up if you like this anime.

Both shows are fast paced, with many of action scenes. Shooting, violence, and gang warfare make both series similar to each other; both main characters are cold hearted killers "forced" into fighting. While Phantom is fairly serious throughout the whole series, Jormungand has some comical elements mixed in there. 
reportRecommended by Jugem-Jugem
Villainous main character who is the mastermind of a group of dangerous individuals.

Both Koko and Hyoubu always have a sinister look about them.

Two series: a thousand of bullets.
• Both are seinen series with a strong action genre and a very likeable pace
• Both deal with weapons and badass characters who use them
• Despite discussing about serious matters and realities they both can also face quite comical funny scenes in order to occasionally slow down the tension.
Personally i think this common point could even be considered the most important of the shared ones because, even if there are serious series who must remain serious, Jormungand and DOGS gained a sort of "unicity" with those occasional comical scenes.
Moreover, it also make the  read more
