Who’s your daddy? Your Big Daddy that is. Fans, we have a blast talking about this week’s review, which is a solo episode this time around. We review the amazingly titled Episode 6 of Gungrave, “Big Daddy.” Brandon and Maria want to get close, but there’s only one thing in the way: an angry mob boss. It’s a classic story of boy meets girl, girl goes to live with a crime lord, boy fishes with crime boss, boy and crime boss eat girl’s pie. You’ll have to listen to this week’s episode to find out just what is going on in this anime.
What a week. Like, seriously. What. A. Week. If you weren’t already elated this historic Saturday, why not smile and laugh and cheer some more at a brand new episode of Tooning Japanese! This week Bill, Josh, and Andy discuss more Gungrave. More specifically they review Episode 4, “Go,” and Episode 5, “Millennion.” The boys have a grand old time talking about how Brandon and Harry get involved with the mafia. It’s a lot more fun than it sounds.
We’re back with more Gungrave! We are SO EXCITED for this season that we decided to talk about TWO EPISODES! Yes, this week the full crew talks about Episode 2 of Gungrave, “Young Dogs,” and Episode 3, “Rain.” If you thought the first episode of the series was too gun crazy, then you’re in luck. We slow things down and go back to a simpler time before whatever apocalypse ravaged the landscape and littered it with orgman. In these two episodes we are introduced to a younger Brandon and Harry as they fight for survival with their gang of friends. And I’m sure nothing tragic will happen to thrust these two into a life of organized crime. Right?
Season 6 is here! Before you listen, we want to thank you all for your continued support over the years. We love getting to just sit down and talk about and dissect some of our favorite anime. Some of them are super popular newer anime like One Punch Man and Gurren Lagaan. Others were classics like Trigun and Wolf’s Rain. And there was Excel Saga, too! Thank you for taking this journey with us!
This week we start our deep dive into the, perhaps lesser known classic, Gungrave. In this first episode we are introduced to our protagonist, Brandon Heat. And he’s packing some major heat as much of the episode is him gunning down weird white creatures called orgman. The first episode of the anime wasn’t great, but it gets a heck of a lot better starting at episode 2. Join Andy, Bill, and Josh (gasp!) for the start of our brand new season!
