I'll be honest. I actually found this series entirely by accident. And at the time (around 8 years ago...) , I thought it would be built on the premise of bewbs hiding bullets and that'd be it, so I did not really care to check (especially since I was tantalized by VIOLENCE back then...though I still kind of am). Recently, I decided to take a look at the manga itself,rather than the anime, without any expectation whatsoever. Aaaaand...
I enjoyed the ride ! Seriously, Grenadier might not be the pinnacle of the 9th Art, but it is charming as fuck ! I really enjoyed the first few chapters and by the end of the 1st volume, I HAD to finish the series.

Now , I  can't really speak for the anime adaptation aside the fact that its opening has one of the best songs I've heard… (Oui ma gueule ! C'est de toute beauté !).


+ Our heroes , ladies and gentlemen.
Seriously though, the 2 main characters are what I enjoyed the most from the story.
Rushuna Tendo is a bit of an goofball. She's sprightly and kind, has some odd reactions and tends to laugh at the obvious. She has impressive skills when it comes to shooting and store a fuckton of bullets in her cleavage ! Also (and speaking of the Manga Rushuna only), she actually does kill but only as a last resort and while defending others.
Yajirou Kojima is the grumpy straight man to Rushuna's bubbliness. While Rushuna outmatches him in terms of superstrength, he is still a very capable swordsman. Right after his past is revealed, his dynamic becomes more serious due to a really understandable survivor's guilt.

+ The fights are tons of fun , my favorite being the one against Banmaru Zoshi.

+ Teppa Aizen's obsession with Rushuna is played purely for comedy relief ...

+ Soun Kongo's badassery and the entire flashback about Rushuna and Namori.

+ This is how you disarm a female antagonist that outmatches you in terms of raw power…


- The plot is kind of average. I feel that we should have seen a bit more of the Juttensen.

- While the Masked Baron is an okay opponent, I felt that he could have been more than just a final obstacle ...

Overall Rating ? Yeah it was cool ! NEXT time, we'll deal with a series that shares its name with an ex-planet...

What are your thought on Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F'?
devilkais Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2015
Didn't care at all for it. And I am a huge fan of Freeza...
