not something u come across everyday. . . 10/10
29 April 2008 | by elmo8-2See all my reviews

As of late a flood of Japanese animated series(most of them a complete crap) have hit the US soil. GunxSword is the most amazing of any one of those. It has beautiful animation, potent voice acting, and a storyline that requires multiple viewings to fully understand. Ten out of Ten. Perhaps the thing that makes GunxSword stand out above its anime competition it the multitude of underlying messages. It has some of the more obvious dialectical themes, love/hate, hope/despair, devotion/betrayal but it is also driven by a gathering of more subtle ideas (I will leave the viewer to find those for themselves. Anyone who has the time that it takes to fully appreciate GunxSword should do so. Also, if you are a fan of unjustified violence and a "Dogma" like delusional ideas then this is the show for you. For me, that is merely a bonus to an amazing piece of art...
