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 »

Exceptional Anime
29 April 1999 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This is anime at his best! The movie works because it's small. Everything is good but not exceptionally good. Because of this the running time of only one hour is perfect. The movie could've easily become too much of a bloodfest but it didn't. The movie also could've easily become an over-romantic love-story but luckily it isn't. It's just a very good little movie. Nothing more and nothing less.
