Oh and Harry's a pedophile. That girl was supposedly 7 five years ago. Now she can't be more than 12. Wtf.

Harry do not care anything for the little girl, as long as she is useful, she can even be 5 XD.

Harry being a Pedo is totally overlooked by the greatness of this episode

And this.

What a seriously underrated anime this is.

Wtf! This is so underrated. Gungrave is really, really powerful. Having an 8.02 score is a sin.

Harry made his move on Bear's daughter, of course he would do something like this, even if she is younger...

Brandon doesn't even think anymore, just push the trigger...

After a weird first episode and a pretty slow start I am totally hooked by this series now. This episode was just amazing.

The way we saw such an array of complex emotions from Sid, good and bad traits, and his relationship with Bear before that crushing death scene really shows what I like about this anime. We respect everyone out here. Bear cried! Jesus, what a sad scene. I really appreciated the detail of Sid expecting a gun to be the first thing Bear pulled out, and the foreshadowing of him watching the boat well drinking. The directing is one of my favorite parts of this anime, even if it can be awkward at times. Despite last episode being the worst, this one really pulled through. I also love how we've seen Bunji and Brandon get as close as they have, the interactions between people say a whole lot in Gungrave.

Wow... such a powerful episode. I guess that's what happens when you betray the organization, and good ol' Brandon came through for the dirty work.

I definitely like the pair of Bunji and Brandon they seem to have a lot in common especially when Brandon understood when Bunji said that he didn't know what having a family was like.

Excluding Harry going on a date with a 12 year old this was an excellent episode and this series is really growing on me.

Watching this episode be like

It really reminds me of GodFather, though it's "our side" that took the hit instead. The suspense and atmosphere were really well done. I like how they constantly switching the major characters' POV near the end, so powerful.

Rewatching this nearly 7 years later, it's still sooo good. Such good directing. So many feelings. And there's so much showing and not telling. You're really seeing the rise of Harry and how his ambition is taking over and he slowly is drifting from Brandon.

That was an incredible episode, seeing Bear unable to kill his friend as the family code forced him to was heartbreaking.
