Trivia

The kanji that accompanies the Gunnm title literally means "gun dream". This kanji compound would normally be read as "juu mu", but manga artist Yukito Kishiro used the English word "gun" (rendered as "gan") for the "gun" kanji. Therefore, the actual pronunciation of Gunnm is "Ganmu". See more »

How cute can you get??
2 December 2003 | by (Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

Any serious anime fan will have a special place in his heart for Gally. She is *the* textbook example of the innocent anime girl. Where this work shines is in Gally's character development through her experiences where she discovers a personality of her own after being reanimated. Her gradual acquisition of her defensive affection with the Doctor and her innocent but deep attachment with Yugo are impressive. No fan of good film acting can criticize this "cartoon" as inferior to live action.

All this applies to the Japanese version with subtitles. The English dubbing is awful.
