Juvenile but fun.

"This is a fun item that needs a low-brow sense of humor to appreciate. I enjoyed it quite a bit but I did think the profanity often didn't serve any purpose.
The style of entertainment you get from this is comparable to "Wild Arms" or "Those who hunt elves". Though neither of those are as lewd as this is.
Some dialog is so painfully funny (at least from a guys perspective) that I actually had a tear in my eye from laughter.
There is a scene very early in the anime where the anti-hero of the show meets another mercenary who is generously endowed with a triple X sized bra cup. He speaks to her, and in about ten seconds he manages to make a statement that both greets her, and at the same time uses every possible slang synonym for "large breasts" in the entire english lexicon. It was quite funny.
This anime doesn't take it self too seriously. Which is good because it makes the humor believable.
A statement "remember this from episode one" is actually said by one of the characters. That the characters are aware they are in an animated series, states definitively that this shouldn't be taken too seriously.
Also the large bouncy breast thing is over done but it doesn't seem to get tired the way it did in "Mizuki Chronicles" (Which I thought was total crap for many reasons but two come to mind that relate to this anime. Not only did the "Mizuki Chronicles" take itself WAY too seriously, almost every single female in the entire show had triple D sized overly bouncy mammaries).
Thankfully "Desert Punk" only has one set of ridiculously sized breasts to work with and it is enough to be fun yet not insulting to ones intelligence.
Is it a work of art? Well... you'll have to judge... I would argue no... worth a laugh? Yes.
This really isn't appropriate for kids in my mind. I'll let my son watch it when he turns sixteen.
It is good for a laugh and the box set quality is comparable to "Trinity Blood", "Basilisk", or "Avenger". The collectors tin is nice too.
Over all it was good, and I liked it, but like "Trinity Blood" it is a bit pricey for what you get."

"I have seen alot of anime and this one I have to say ranks in the top ten of the comedy section. If you like sexual inuendos and good old dirty humor then this is one for you."

"I thought it was very entertaining, if you take it for what it is and don't pick it apart the story is brilliant. The setting kind of reminds me of Trigun even some of the combat in the sense that there are a lot of good gun fights. Also there's some adult humor in it but it's on an almost childish level. Funny none the less though."
Dirty minded, if a little average

"To be frank, the main character is a cynical, manipulative, depraved, black-hearted pervert. His only positive features are his tenacity and dedication to work. Besides that he is a pretty wicked person. Desert Punk is simply a raunchy misadventure in the desert. Nothing more and nothing less. Its pretty offensive, but quality wise it could have been much worse. Know what your getting into before buying this series."
