Boy, this sure was made by the creator of Trigun. That was one of the first observations I made while watching this anime, and it held true to the end. Many creators have some recurring styles and motifs shared between their works, and comparing it to such a well-known and well-loved classic has the capacity to be both good and bad. It certainly doesn't help that this was also adapted from a video game; game adaptations in general rarely fare well, and from what I've heard the original game itself was mediocre at best (I haven't played it though, so take that with a grain read more

Based on the cult PS2 title by SEGA and Red Entertainment, this anime is an alternate retelling of that respective title which I own a copy of, and you can get it for like $5 at Game Stop. The anime tells the origin story of the main character, Brandon Heat, who is later re-named Beyond the Grave, and his best friend, Harry MacDowell. The organization of the presentation of the story feels as if it was perfectly structured as a 3-act play, each with its own unique theme and gimmick.

Both shows start in a similar way, starting in a present where monsters exist and then going into a lengthy flashback story. The similarities don't end there: the most obvious similarity between the two is the way two best friends' relationship worsens over the course of the story. While not identical (Berserk is set during medieval times, where as Gungrave is about gangsters), both shows are similar enough for most fans of one to like the other.
The art is similar (from the same creator so what would you expect?), the story concept has some bridges. Above all.... COOL GUNS EVERYWHERE!
