Editorial Reviews

For Brandon Heat, death doesn't matter. Driven by his need for revenge, he returns from beyond the grave to cripple Milleneon, the huge mafia organization that uses undead monsters as its enforcers. His ultimate goal will be to destroy Harry MacDowel, the leader of Milleneon and, at one time, Brandon's best friend...

Customer Reviews

I'd heard that it was a good show, but I hadn't really drawn the initiative to get it.

Gungrave opens thirteen years after Brandon Heat is betrayed and killed by his best friend Harry MacDowell.
Alex Tyte
This anime was done very well and the story all the way up to the exciting ending was great.

More often than not anime tends to be extremely repetitive. A young guy fights his way to the top whether it be in sports, outer space or love. It's even worse when the show goes on for far longer than it should. You get 150 spisodes into it and the main character is still doing the same thing he was doing 20 episodes into it. Granted, this show is not some revolutionary genre buster but it is definitely refreshing and engaging.

I'll try and not to go into too much detail since there's plenty of other reviews already and if you feel like it you can find many spoilers all around. The show starts out right in the thick of things. A fair comparison can be made with "Berserk" since both shows drop you into things with not much explanation and then take their time to flesh things out. I had read very little about the show when I bought it and after watching the first episode it didn't really seem all that special. Just another cool looking guy shoothing thugs up but I kept watching since even if it did turn out that way it'd still have probably been somewhat entertaining. However, once things start getting fleshed out and we're introduced to the characters you realize there's a lot more going on here.

At the center of the story we have Brandon Heat. He's part of a small time gang led by his life long friend Harry McDowell. They're just a bunch of young guys trying to survive and if they can make a few bucks while they're at it then they certainly welcome the chance. Harry isn't happy where he is though and we eventually come to see that Harry wants to make it to the top. Brandon doesn't really seem to have the same strong feelings he just kind of follows his friend and they slowly move forward. I realize I'm being a bit vague but I think vague is best.

Gungrave tells the tale of two best friends put on the path of their own destruction. Brandon Heat and Harry McDowell are two street thugs who join with the Mellenion Syndicate (a mafia crime syndicate) and begin the climb the ladder, and their ascension makes a mark on everyone around them.

Gungrave is a noir story with an anime twist. It deals with the internal politics of the mob, but also the deeply rooted bond between Harry and Brandon, unrequited love, and honor. Millenion has an unbreakable law, "Protect, and never betray the family." The "Code of Iron," as it's called, drives the entire series.

The first half of the series focuses on Brandon's memories of the time before he "died." The "anime twist" are the horrors that unchecked ambition created, that Brandon must fight in the second half of the series. Despite being centered around organized crime, the violence doesn't feel gratuitous, there is no drug use, and matters of love (of any kind) are relatively tame.

This is a repackaging of the old DVDs released originally by Geneon, it just comes in a much cooler looking box than the previous box set.

When it comes to anime for guys, in my opinion, there are three series all guys should watch: Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, and Gungrave. If you liked Trigun and Cowboy Bebop give this a shot.

Just like before, I advise skipping the first episode and starting with Episode 2, it's less confusing that way.

Gungrave tells the tale of two best friends put on the path of their own destruction. Brandon and Harry are two street hoods who join the mafia and begin the climb the ladder, and their ascension makes a mark on everyone around them.

Gungrave is a noir, mafia story with an anime twist. It deals with the internal politics of the mob at first, before it becomes something personal for our main characters. Despite being in the business of killing, the Millenion syndicate has an unbreakable law, "Protect, and never betray the family." The "Code of Iron" drives the entire anime.

Gungrave is not a shounen. It's closer to Cowboy Bebop and Trigun at certain points. There are no bombastic characters in the mafia. These are hired killers that disassociate themselves from their dirty business. The first half of the series focuses on Bradon's, the main character, memories of the time before he died. The anime twist are the horrors that unchecked ambition created, that Brandon must fight in the second half of the series. Despite being centered around organized crime, the violence doesn't feel gratuitous, there is no drug use, and matters of love (of any kind) are relatively tame.

I definitely think Gungrave is worth a second look. If you liked Trigun and Cowboy Bebop, give this a shot. You might be pleasantly surprised.

I gaze at that gray haired hulk and think, "Beyong the Grave" was once a man. A man named Brandon Heat.

I want to mention that you might want to skip the first episode of the series. It's supposed to entice you to watch more, but most might consider it misleading and confusing. Episode 2 is a much better place to start, IMO.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The first time I reviewed Gungrave it was for the series as a whole, not for the complete box set. I saw that a newer cheaper box set was coming out, so I waited. I bought this Fully Loaded Collector's set, and while it's not as fully loaded as I'd like it to be, it certainly is a better buy than the previous one.

The pros:

1. The DVD's come in slimline cases packed inside a very handsome box that holds all of them. The slimmer cases take up significantly less room on your DVD shelf than the other box set.

2. The option of 5.1 surround sound.

3. It's $45 cheaper than the other box set.

The cons:

1. While it is nice that the slimline cases make for more space on your DVD shelves, it would also have been nice to have more episodes per DVD. I sure wish companies that make American DVD's of anime would stop putting so few episodes on each disc (I'm talking to you ADV!), and pack more on there to save us money. I can't see how anyone really cares about cool front covers or how many different interactive menus can be used for each DVD.

2. No extras. Sure, you get character sketches and ads for other anime, whoop-dee-freakin'-do. What about interviews with the writers, artists, director, or voice actors? Companies like Geneon and ADV sure could take a lesson or three from the folks at Criterion who actually strive to make a DVD that gives you more bang for your buck.

Overall, the pro's outweigh the cons. If you really want to own this whole series and also save money and shelf space, I highly recommend you buy this set instead of the other one.
