Review: Gungrave


Plot Summary:

After a tragic scene with the murder of his friends, Brandon Heat follows his only friend Harry McDowel into Millennion, the largest mafia syndicate. While Harry McDowel is striving for power, Brandon is only staying in Millennion to see the girl he loves who’s custody was gained by the leader of Millennion, Big Daddy. But as the years pass and Brandon proves loyal to Millennion, Brandon learns the true purpose and passion of Millennion, and that’s when true conflict arises.

Brandon Heat, a silent and passive man, is living a laid back life with his friends. He’s got his eyes on Maria, but her uncle forbids their relationship. After the brutal murder of his friends and Maria’s father, Brandon is on the run together with the only friend he has left; Harry McDowell. When he finds out custody over Maria has been taken by Millennion, the largest mafia syndicate in town, he and Harry decide to join the syndicate. He goes through many hardships after joining the syndicate but he is willing to risk everything as long as he can be close to Maria.

Gungrave is anime that you really get pulled into because of all the complex relationships and fast paced action. This anime revolves around Brandon Heat, Maria (the girl he is protectin), and Harry McDowel of Millennion. Brandon is the faithful friend who would protect his friend with his life, and he even sacrificed himself to become the soldier to protect the girl from his old best friend who is trying to kill her to have complete control of the syndicate. Brandon will everything in his power to protect Maria from the Millennion. By the time you finish with the anime you wish it didn’t finish, you feel attached to the characters, it such a good story, plotline, and characters that you really get tied into them and attached to the story. You get emmeresed in this great work, and once its done you still want more from it. This is one anime that I can’t recommend enough to people to watch.
