There was a time, in anime, when men were men, and they had huge swords and guns with which to leave bloody trails of corpses in their wake.

This anime could have been really good... a few things they did wrong was adding "drama", countless flashbacks that was not needed.

American Studios and Production Committees: Risks and Rewards

In the early-mid 2000s, US licensing companies were involved in numerous anime Production Committees. It didn't go so well for them. This year, several US licensors are trying their luck on Production Committees again. Will it go better this time?
