Synopsis

Rushuna is a blonde and very beautiful Senshi (gun expert) that travels through the world with one purpose. Which is to make the world a peaceful place by, instead of fighting with weapons, taking away the people's will to fight by giving them a smile. Although she doesn't want to fight, she is forced to, and shows amazing gun skills. In this journey she meets Yajirou, a mercenary that uses a sword to fight and joins her on her journey.

I've bought the Collector's Box of this anime, watched it in two days, and actually liked it very much. I don't know why has it got such a low score or why is so unpopular, all I have to say is that this anime haves everything you look for in a good anime: decent story, rich characters, action, humor and "echiness".

The theme of the story is based on the the feudal Japan. A very old era where the weapon of choice was the katana, but in this anime there are guns as well, actually the anime itself centres around the use of this guns and read more

I don't know whats wrong with everyone else but don't listen to them. Grenadier is a great anime. The story isn't overly complicated . Which can be a good thing. even though i guess for people who like really in depth stories it didn't appeal to them. The characters are very likable or dislike able if they are a bad guy. The characters generate just the right amount of mystery making you want to know more about them. There is a large amount of ecchi for guys that like to see bouncy boobs and long legs. It can also be a very funny read more

On the technical side of things, great care was obviously taken with Rushuna’s massive assets and ensuring quality control on those ba-shook-shooks, but shortcuts are rampant everywhere else. "Oh look, he kinda froze…I guess that means he got shot?" "Explosion? Shake the still frame like a Polaroid picture!" You get the idea. The show never really impresses visually, and more often than not, it repulses with variable character models and halfhearted animation. The character designs themselves are sufficiently memorable, but not terribly unique.

Back to the two main focuses of the budget, they’re ridiculous. No matter how busty you are, those things never narrow to read more

I watched this originally via my University's animé club. The sole reason it was voted for as pitched was based on the idea that "She reloads her gun like this!" [shows clip of bullets flying out from between her breasts] Ok, some of you might be like "sign me up right now!" and some might be like "Oh God that's terrible". Though this is sort of one of the main "recognition" features of this animé, I'd say there's more to it than that.

Don't expect crazy plot depth and ridiculous twists, but as I recall there's enough to it to make it interesting and though relatively read more

Anime: Trigun
Well basically, both the main character doesn't want to kill people and each series is funny as hell! And it has the same theme too.

Anime: Ikkitousen
Both series feature busty, ditzy female protagonists with a lot of action scenes.  
reportRecommended by MurdocJones
Anime: Highschool of the Dead
Both of these shows are filled with fanservice and action. Rushuna from Grenadier and Shizuka from HOTD have basically the same personalities, although Rushuna is much more brave and a bit more intelligent.

Grenadier is much more light-hearted than Highschool of the Dead.

Anime: Manyuu Hikenchou
Similarities:

Both involves chicks who can kick ass and with big boobs, BOINK! BOINK!

Both shares the same shojo, action and ecchi genres, BOINK! BOINK!

Both main chicks has a side kick who joins them in thier journey, BOINK! BOINK!

Disimilarities:

MH has an extra martial arts, samurai, yuri and history genre, While Grenadier has adventure and comedy as its extra genre.

In Grenadier the chick has 2 side kicks, one is a man and one is a kid, while MH only has her loyal aide as her sidekick.

Anime: Rurouni Kenshin: Meiji Kenkaku Romantan
Both take place during a time as guns were replacing swords, and Samurai are no longer needed. Neither Kenshin, nor Rushyuna want to kill their opponents and disable the enemies with their superiour skill.
