Have you ever played the PS2 game? It's pretty solid but the camera angles can mess with you and it's buggy at times.
haven't played it. been interested, though.
What didn't you like about Gungrave?
I found it hokey, goofy, not in a charming way. It just rubbed me the wrong way. And for a show that comes off as so action packed and littered with bodies, it really, really shies away from blood. I kept seeing basically the same shot, pointing gun up close (somtimes waiting like 2 minutes to build up TENSION), cut away, gunshot sound. I got tired of seeing this scene. There were some parts I thought were kinda cool, but I felt that so many things were poorly executed. I didn't think the show was exactly bad, just not so good. I don't really know what to tell you. I just didn't care that much for this show.
and freaking Blood War. man. fuck that guy.
Watching it dubbed didn't help, either. Brandon's voice actor got pretty annoying, specifically when narrating. He was fine as Jin in Samurai Champloo, but I think he did poorly as Brandon. I started to hate hearing his voice. also, fucking Lex Lang. not liking this guy. my fault for not switching to sub. And am I crazy, or did I hear Tony Oliver play like 10 different people, if even just extras and bit parts aside from Harry? I could have sworn...Not that I don't like Oliver. I love him as Lupin.
Also, what kind of name is Millennion? Did they mistake the word millennium? Is there an explanation for this name? I'm curious. speaking of names...Beyond the Grave. What a lame name. should have went with just Grave. It would have been more, you know, name-like. They call him that for short, anyway.
