Gun Blaze West is a manga that had potential to become something special, but because of its cancellation, it never got a chance to take off, thus making it difficult to judge the manga. It's fun while it lasts, but it's definitely a manga that won't leave you satisfied. If you've ever read Zombie Powder by Tite Kubo, you know what I'm talking about. Gun Blaze West to Nobuhiro Watsuki is more or less what Zombie Powder is to Tite Kubo.

Gun Blaze West - A Lost Pearl.

The problem with Shonen Jump at the time was the cancellation of some series due to not selling enough content and Gun Blaze West was one of those works. The series was canceled against the very will of Nobuhiro Watsuki, the man behind Buso Renkin and the best-known seinen manga ever, Rurouni Kenshin ("Samurai X" in Europe).

The series had everything to be successful but due to the lack of sales was eventually forgotten in the memory of the people who supported the series. I have to admit that I didn't know the series at all, but out of curiosity read more

It was a nice concept that they used with the West rather than go with your generic Japanese setting. A goal is enough to power someone's life. The very same can be said about this story. Gun Blaze West focuses on only one true path. It may have been a short series with a disappointing discontinued ending but Gun Blaze West forever takes us to the place we've always dreamt of going to. And it gives us a strong realization to embrace our goals. One that is as strong as that of the main character's, Viu Bannes.
