Product Description

There’s a claw-fisted, fiancé-murdering, older-brother-corrupting, genocidal maniac terrorizing the planet of endless illusion, and only Van, a tight-lipped loner in a jet black tuxedo, can bring the scoundrel to justice. Armed with his shape-shifting sword, a mechanized suit of armor sent from the heavens, and a fierce hunger for condiments, Van hunts the villain who murdered his one true love with dogged determination. Riding shotgun on his quest is Wendy Garret, a pretty young spitfire who’ll do anything to reunite with her long lost brother. Together, they seek vengeance in a lawless, futuristic frontier, draining bottles of ketchup and righting wrongs wherever heroes are needed. With any luck, they’ll find the men they seek before the sun sets on civilization once and for all.

Van (pronounced "Vaughn"), the hero of the 2005 broadcast series Gun x Sword (pronounced "Gun-sword"), roams the wastes of the planet Endless Illusion, seeking The Claw, the one-armed man who murdered his bride on their wedding day. When he gets in trouble, Van summons Dann, a powerful Gundam-esque mecha, to clobber his foes. During his wanderings, he picks up several ill-assorted companions, including Wendy, a girl who's looking for her missing brother; Carmen, an "information broker" in a skimpy outfit; and Joshua, the eager younger brother of Ray--who's also out to kill The Claw. For the first several episodes, Van and his pals stumble from one short, often silly misadventure to another. Around episode 9, the story begins to gel. The Claw isn't some casual murderer but the cult leader known as "Our Comrade," who plans to use ancient technology to remake the entire planet's society according to his will. Gun x Sword is obviously trying to be a combination of Trigun and Cowboy Bebop, but Van commands neither the film noir charisma of Spike Spiegel nor the nutty charm of Vash the Stampede. Carmen is an obvious clone of Faye Valentine from Bebop and the mecha fights are shamelessly lifted from various Gundam series. The first eight episodes do almost nothing to advance the plot, and the later ones feel padded with repetitions, mawkish sentimentality, pointless subplots, fan service cleavage shots, and endless nattering. The Complete Collection comes with a disc of extras that includes Japanese commercials, 13 episodes of Gun x Sword San, a "super-deformed" spoof with CG hand puppets, and the footage from the series voice actor David Vincent (Van) recut to propose to his girlfriend. (Rated TV-14, but suitable for ages 16 and older: violence, violence against women, profanity, toilet and risqué humor, nudity, sexual situations, alcohol use) --Charles Solomon
