Gunsmith Cats. The original Cowboy Bebop. Almost. There's a jazzy OP with simple 70's style split-screen graphics madness, bounty hunters, western sensibilities. The prototype for Shinichiro Watanabe's version which maxed out everything this franchise has. Unfortunately it doesn’t have Watanabe.

What it has is Rally Vincent and Minnie-May causing havoc in Chicago in their Mustang GT500 via their trusty guns and bombs.

Watching this OVA after reading the manga is preferable as if you dig the manga then watching it animated after 9 volumes of guncrazy magic, is nice. Another reason is that 9 volumes doesn’t translate into 3 episodes, read more

Overview:

Time to review a nostalgic classic! Be warned that this anime is VERY cheesy, but it is also quite fun! This is what you might call a "guilty pleasure" anime. Gunsmith Cats almost entirely revolves around 3 fetishes: guns, the 1967 Mustang GT, and tits. I have never seen an anime that seemed to try SO hard to pander to American rednecks. This is basically the anime Dukes of Hazzard! Too bad Rally's car isn't as cool as the General Lee. Firstly, the 69 Dodge Charger is cooler than the 67 Mustang. Secondly, Rally's car isn't painted an absolutely garish orange featuring the Confederate flag. read more

Oh what to say about Gunsmith Cats? One of the earliest anime I ever had the luxury to view, it was quite a fantastic experience as a teenager. Having recently re-watched the show I found that I enjoyed it even more, having noticed the little details that I disregarded when I was younger (such as the welded on 'S' on the Gunsmith Cats store, obviously indicating that the business was opened before Rally made contact with Minnie May) and understanding a bit more of the culture at hand. That is...Chicago. Yep, this anime takes place in the glorious U.S. of A, so if that isn't read more

Girls and guns - a combination that can't go wrong! In the mean streets of Chicago, Illinois, Rally Vincent, a beautiful young woman with a mean aim, and "Minnie" May Hopkins, her streetwise explosives expert partner, do their best trying to keep the city clean by rounding-up bail jumpers.

This anime, a good vision of Kenich Sonoda's manga, is unique because of the production team's eye for detail, making many trips from Japan to get accurate locale scenes - even going as far a visiting the Illinois Police Academy and an actual gunshop, a rarety in gun-controled Japan.

The only sad thing about this read more
