Synopsis

In the future, Japan is a wasteland. In the Great Kantou Desert, scattered humans seek out a living in the hot sand. Among them, a short-statured man they call "Sunabouzu" makes a living as a bounty hunter. Like a demon of the sand, he seems unbeatable. Yet, like all men, he has a particular weakness for the opposite sex...

First, let me point out the fact that if you don't like crude humor, don't bother watching Suna Bouzu (Desert Punk). This anime is filled with perverted, ecchi, and all around hilariously funny jokes (which may or may not offend some people). Don't let the comedy be the deciding factor though, as this show has some great action scenes. Kanta seems like an original Joe Blow, and quite the idiot at times, but when the going gets tough, he pulls through with some miraculous skills and finesse.

The story lacks a little somewhat through the middle of the series, but picks up a lot towards the read more

Ahh, Desert Punk, this show is all about the nice surprises:) It is something you definitely shouldn't miss out on, despite the fact that it's kinda hard to get into at first.
First of all, let me tell you that I almost dropped this series.I watched the first 5-6 episodes and I stopped, because quite frankly I didn't think I could handle any more boob jokes.However, the other day,having nothing to do, I decided to finish the series.Much to my surprise, despite that the boob jokes did not diminish in numbers, the show started to grow on me, mostly because of the wonderful character development.

OK, so here it is. My latest review.

Just recently I finished watching Suna Bouzu, and I really have to say that I have some mixed feelings about it. I think the show had a great deal of potential which remained unused for the most part, due to a few unfortunate lapses in the show.

Story: 6

The story was for the most part decent, if a little unoriginal. The setting is a post - apocalyptic desert where people must use whatever they can to survive the harsh conditions (Road Warrior, anyone?) However, the structure of the show is slightly odd, in that it is very episodic right read more

I found Desert Punk to be a wonderful combination of somewhat perverse comedy and deep, compelling morals. Kanta starts out as a desert handyman: not completely honest but not heartless as he appears at the end of the series. Conversely, Kasuna starts out as more of a heartless fighter (albeit a bit weak, and with no training to speak of), but becomes more of a kind hearted individual as the story progresses. The divide between herself and Kanta widens as he becomes more concerned with his own successes and less for her wellbeing or the wellbeing of others, and this is what strikes me as read more

Recipe:
Take 1 part Vash, 2 parts Wolfwood, and 6 parts short unattractive mega-pervert. Place in a desert oven set to 125° for 17-18 years and you get Kanta "Sunabouzu" Mizuno. Serve with large helpings of big bounties, boisterous badasses, and buxom babes and you get 24 episodes of action packed sexually frustrated hilarity known simply as "Desert Punk"
Watching these two series will feel like taking on an adventurous trip. In essence, they both chronicles the stories of a main male protagonist who is known for hunting various beings across their perspective worlds. The one thing they both have a weakness and love for is - women.

Throughout their adventure, they meet other characters that influences their lives in various ways. Yet on many said occasions, there are moments when our adventurers find their lives in danger.

Both series also takes place in a futuristic setting.
Though stories are very different, both main characters of these comedies are Great Immortal Virgin Superheroes thinking about attractive women
Humor focused though different types. Post apocalyptic. Same color for practically all characters even if the characters themselves are very different. Except maybe green.
Same style waky humor except sun bum is way more mature.
They are both about for hire mercenaries, that use guns as their main weapons. And meeting different mercenaries and assassins while doing jobs, sometimes going against them.
