First off, for a "gun" anime, its knowledge of firearms and firearms users is incredibly poor. Sure, it names off things, but for the most part, *real gun users use nicknames in combat*. It makes for incredibly clunky dialogue, where they shout out "He's got a Negev LMG" or "Mi 24 Hind D" said out in full. They'd say, "Hind, take cover!" or "Target, machine gunner, 9 o'clock". There's no addressing the amount of bullets one can carry (in episode four the bad guy guns down an entire opera house with what looks like one nutsack, and that does not hold enough to gun down read more

“Your new recruit is a child soldier? And he's got iron, shit.”

There is much to talk about guns, wars, arm dealers, and child soldiers these days. For those who are into the fast action type, the type of series involving a kickass music, or a type of series involving a main protagonist being loco, or blood being splattered all over the screen, then this series is definitely something to keep an eye on.

According to Norse Mythology, Jörmungandr (or more often known as Jormungand) is known as the Midgard Serpent or the World Serpent. And like a serpent, the main character is cunning as expected of read more

“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

I am not sure what to say about this show. It is extremely action packed and the character looks interesting at first glance, but there is so many of them and they are all still so cryptic that it is hard to tell if they are not just generic characters in the end. I am not sure where this show will be going exactly, obviously action will take a major part of the show, but I have a feeling (mostly because this is a white fox production) that the character will turn out to be very likable and interesting in the end.

Recommendations

Anime: Black Lagoon
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

Anime: Canaan
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.

Anime: Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom
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.

Anime: Zettai Karen Children: The Unlimited - Hyoubu Kyousuke
Villainous main character who is the mastermind of a group of dangerous individuals.

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

Anime: Dogs: Bullets & Carnage
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
