At the last moment, the bountiful Rushuna appears and saves him with a smile... and a high -caliber revolver. She is traveling across Japan in search of a way to bring an end to war. Yajiro and Rushuna challenge countless opponents with his sword and her talent for reloading on the bounce.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trigun with Breasts May 3, 2007
Verified Purchase
Good DVD series. Some comic humor, some serious overtones and a Girl with "Big Guns" what more can you ask for in an anime. Hey that reloading sequence that defies the laws of physics is worth it alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grenadier 2 thumbs Up July 25, 2008
Verified Purchase
Grenadier is a really nice series and is funny and fast enough to keep my attention. I love sexy comedies and this is one of my top favorites with Love Hina and Tenchi Muyo. Not everyones cup of tea I'm afraid though. But if you need something with a sexy heroine and a clutsy guy who likes her this should be a good addition to your collection.

Grenadier is a great 12 episode series. Recommended for those who like action, a good story, and a decent ending resolution.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but there are better animes out there December 21, 2009
The basic premise of this Grenadier is a gunslinger advocating peace and refusing to kill anyone. The beginning episodes show off the main character's marksmanship well and got my hopes high for the rest of the series. Unfortunately, all the fights are either against opponents who have zero chance of actually meaningfully fighting back or against someone with a cheesy wacky power who will then give up fighting after their weakness is finally exposed (except the fight at the end against another grenadier toward the end which was absolutely awesome). If they had edited this down to a six-episode OVA it could have been great. Grenadier is good enough to pass the time and you may go back to re-watch the highlights, but is ultimately a poor copy of Trigun which is an all-around better anime.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, but forgettable. February 7, 2008
To properly enjoy Grenadier, I would simply rehash a phrase used many-a-times by other reviewers to describe various Anime series: "Leave your brain at the door".

If one were to deviate from simply enjoying the visuals by contemplating the story, characters, theme, etc; your brain might eventually cause you to regret your purchase.

"Why did I purchase Grenadier?" "Why does this happen when this doesn't?" "What kind of outfit is that?!" "Is that even a logical way to reload a pistol?!" Thoughts like these might ensue.

For what it's worth, Grenadier is a very nicely animated and entertaining series; though I personally find it as standard fare for Japanimation, with storylines including: revenge, save-a-town, badguy-turn-good, rescue-a-princess, etc.

I would not recommend, nor persuade anyone from adding Grenadier to their own personal collection. Although I do have to admit, the Opening Theme for Grenadier is a sweet melody... As I watched through all the episodes, I never skipped past the opening once.

As a final note, Grenadier is not recommended for viewing by youngsters, or those sensitive to suggestive themes. There is no actual nudity, but it doesn't shy away from convenient cover-ups.
