Storyline

The series follows Koko Hekmatyar, a young arms dealer who sells weapons under HCLI, an international shipping corporation that secretly deals in the arms trade. As one of the company's unofficial weapon dealers, she secretly sells weapons in many countries while avoiding the local authorities and law enforcement agencies as most of her work is actually illegal under international law. Traveling with her is her team of bodyguards who are mostly composed of ex-military veterans. Her latest addition to her crew is Jonah, a seemingly emotionless child soldier who is skilled in combat yet ironically hates arms dealers. What follows is Koko and her crew's escapades around the world. Written by Satoshi Kaneyasu

above average action anime
28 June 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

There is some interesting themes in this anime, since its main protagonist is an arms dealer and her companions are mercenaries, including a boy soldier...

Koko is the leader of a troupe of mercenaries and she picks up Jonah along the way, a boy no more than 10 years old and has him join her merry gang of killers. Of course, these killers are actually good guys who are just doing a service (selling arms to despots around the world), but they never kill anyone who doesn't deserve it haha...

Its never overly violent or exploitative, despite the subject matter and the characters are likable enough, although while the animation is good, the female characters don't look very female, but that was probably done on purpose...watch it if you liked 'Black Lagoon' (which I did)...
