A very well done series.

This series is well done and I don't know why people are knocking this around. It's a nice break from the traditional garbage we get here on NG that's full of violence, gore and other s***. I've been a fan of the BS series for now ever since I stumbled across their website. The series has been around longer than it has been on NG. It's a good story and I hate to see it end quickly.

A play by play, for those that do not get It.

This is a violent chapter. It lures you in with sex, and ends in violence, with a great deal of exposition inbetween. Is violence bad? Certainly. Is it glorified here? Not at all. Violence is horror - anyone that's ever been in a real fight or seen the body of a close friend knows that. Sometimes, though, fighting is the only option other than dying.

Mars has in his possession a series of underage girls that he's hooked on drugs and forced into prostitution. He admits as much in this very act, and then threatens to kill Kami, Oran, and Raimi, who do everything in their power to avoid violence. They impersonate the authorities, try reason, but to no avail as Mars is unable to see past the bloody load in his hand.

Oran defends his friends as a last resort. He is brutal and efficient. He deals with bullies in a manner that they have earned (but perhaps not deserve). Mars then threatens to kill him, and Kami saves the day. This is not a masturbative revenge fantasy; shit like this happens. If you're lucky enough to have never seen it, good on you, and may you continue to be so lucky.

Violence is never justified. Ever. As soon as you've thrown a punch, you've lost. A dead friend told me that ages ago. The heroes in this are deeply flawed people - look at the title, for pity's sake - but they certainly do not enjoy causing pain. They are sick, but none of them are sadistic. Mars and his two moons certainly are, however.

Good people somtimes forget that in order for Evil to triumph, all the Good have to do is Nothing. We are told not to fight in this day and age, for anything. We believe in strictly narrow lines, and refuse to consider that we might be wrong. The Koran is one of the most beautiful pieces of scripture ever written - Oran quotes it to support his faith and to find divine meaning in an infernal world that - and this is important - We Chose.

This series is about growth, and evolution, but all growth and all evolution require blood. This series is a killing floor, but if you can look past the surface there is so much Truth for you to find.

Good Hunting.

THATS FUCKING IT

LISTEN UP YOU FUCKING N00BS AND LISTEN GOOD.THIS SERIES IS NOT MEANT TO FUCKING ENTERTAIN YOU IN EXPLOSIONS AND CAR CHASES.ITS A SPIRITUAL CARTOON MEANT TO MAKE YOU THINK AND TO BREAK AWAY FROM ALL THE GARBAGE SHIT OF REALITY AND TO MAKE YOU THINK.

SURE THERE IS NUDITY IN THIS AND VIOLENCE BUT THIS DOES NOT DEFINE THE BLOODY SERIES.

I DONT THINK YOU REALIZE HOW MUCH TIME AND EFFORT AND MONEY WAS SPENT MAKING THE SERIES AND TO KEEP IT UP FOR THE FANS WHO ENJOY IT.

Go buy some american to fill your fat holes.

Glorifying violence and pretending they're heros.

This is violent and pointless, but the authors seem to think that senseless violence can be justified. The heroes enjoy hurting people, and causing pain. That is sick, and the authors do not understand what they are really doing. This series is full of hatred. There is enough hatred in the world, maybe in part because of trash like this.

Scripture is quoted often, the Koran many times, but the authors always try to justify torment with religion. This series breeds pain. You would better serve the world by doing anything else. I'm sorry if you are hurting. But don't hurt anyone else, or subject everyone to your sadistic daydreams.
