Grenadier - Hohoemi no Senshi

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Grenadier - Hohoemi no Senshi aka Grenadier the Smiling Warrior is a great anime. I agree with the person above, it woud of been nice to have a box, but seeing that this is only a 12 episode series and only gonna be 3 DVD's with 4 Episodes a disc. Maybe we will get a box with the final volume, also the Figure was a Plus and like the other reviewer the Mini Documentary was awesome.

"Grenadier takes place during the Japanese Civil war, where the only surviving samurai Yajiro is being chased after by an enemy army of senshi (gun-wielding baddies). Lucky for him, he is saved by the beautiful/bubbly Rushuna and her gun-slinging skills. As they both travel to different towns, they are constantly being chased/shot at by various enemy senshi. The main enemy in the first 4 episodes is the Jester, who looks pretty freaky due to his "Jester" mask that covers his entire face. He has the ability to stop Rushuna in her tracks, preventing her from pulling the trigger. He also has the ability to fly in the air and teleport himself all over the place, serving as the eyes and ears of..... [not spoiling this for you any further].

To be honest, this was a definite impulse buy. However, I was pleasantly surprised by how I wanted to see more episodes of this particular anime. Yes, there is some "fan service," aka bouncing chests and hot bath scenes. But, most of the time, it's in good taste. **Unless you're a collector, I recommend not purchasing Grenadier with the collectable figure, mainly b/c it doesn't have any articulation points, nor does it even stand properly on its own.**"

"Grenadier was a very fun, exciting and playful show. I found it very enjoyable. Not only that Rushuna dislikes wars and violence
she tries to change the world with a smile just the way she was taught, but not everyone agrees as she will have to struggle with the enemies she encounters and the bounty on her head put by Tenchi who is supposed to be sort of a mentor for Rushuna."
Go Grenadier!!

"Yay, Grenadier is an awesome anime...I guess it's completely underrated. It has a great story and incorporates gun-wielding ladies AND awesome samurai! Great story, I highly HIGHLY recommend this anime. It's only 13 episodes at the moment, but hopefully it will be completed. So BUY THIS ANIME and maybe the studio will finish the series!! ^^"
