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

Boobs, everywhere...
There, thats grenadier in two words, but since i'm such a nice guy and enjoy spending my time writing reviews for free (*_*)/ I will elaborate a bit for you at home.

This basically follows a super well-endowed ditzy blonde chick as she runs around trying to prevent fighting and violence in general. How does she plan to do this? by stripping them of their armour, which is meant to be taken the dirty way, but after so long the phrase just gets really lame, but yeah thats her plan. To do that she decides that flashing smiles will solve all the problems, guess what, read more

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.

Both series feature busty, ditzy female protagonists with a lot of action scenes.  
reportRecommended by MurdocJones
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.  
reportRecommended by MurdocJones

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!


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.

When it comes to being seen  read more

Both animes have a kick ass main character.
But Revy is more violent than Tendoue, But they are both great with guns.
reportRecommended by Wintersun93
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.
