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

For my anime reviews I am going to review the anime on the order of which you would experience while watching an episode of the anime that is being reviewed.

1.Art - Desert Punk has a post-apocalyptic, steampunk approach to it's art. This gives the show a feel that is fitting for the time period and setting of the story. By the way, did I mention that all the characters are fricken' ugly. Yeah the character models could not have been worse, but instead of leaving my opinion there I decided that the ugliness of the characters had a purpose. I believe 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. Also, read more

Desert Punk is the most realistic reputation of human behavior (In parts) and realistic decisions people would make in a given circumstance. A lot of people will not past the ecchiness and downright jerkass main character, those people are missing out on an incredible anime. Watch the DUB, believe me the dub brings out the fullest of this anime, all the characters are voiced to perfection.

The first about 6-8 episodes are a build up of the story, not to much action and there is some ridiculous aspects to it; however after that the story gets rolling and every episode is absolutely awesome. 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.

Humor focused though different types. Post apocalyptic. Same color for practically all characters even if the characters themselves are very different. Except maybe green.
