Did You Know?


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 »

A real treat for any Anime' Fan.
18 September 1998 | by (Miami, Florida) – See all my reviews

This feature deals with the possibility of full cybernetic replacement of the frail human body and the effects this may have on society and the individual. What kind of value would be placed on human life? What capabilities do you build into a machine body? Can a human brain thus sustained, have a soul? There is plenty of action and even a love interest. It's an anime' classic that should be required viewing for any anime' fan. And a great starter for anyone wishing to try anime'. Be advised, though an animated feature, "Gunnm" is graphicly violent. It is NOT a cartoon. No cute bunnys. "Gunnm" (Battle Angel) is an incredibly well animated adaptation of a popular Manga (Japanese Comic Book Style). The only drawback is that their is only one and apparently no plans to continue the work in Anime'. The Manga however... continues.
