I don't even know why people think fan-service must be bad. If they have good plot, characters, and want to add in some fan-service, it's alright with me. I guess people nowadays will complain EVA being a fan-service galore

I watched the first episode and I kinda liked it. If you ignore the excessive boobage, it's quite a funny show with nice animation/character design. The music was pretty naff though.. but I'll give this 5 episodes and if I really don't care for it, I'll drop it. But, it certainly made me smile... I can just see a lot of girls, including mine, hating a series like this


How much of the manga has been released, or is it just being released with the manga?

Truly interesting style of reloding. . . Humm, does she still have spare ammo, or is just that cold. . . .

I seem to be the only one to have watched this series who was expecting it to suck hard but ended up being intrigued. I like the main character, shes cool so far and she has big boobs ^_^. Otherwise for me thats the only thing this show has that interests me. The whole gunslinging thing is fucking redicolus, it follows the laws of anime to the letter (ex: main hero is ALWAYS accurate with any firearm while the bad guys are NOT even if they empty rounds into the hero, the hero ALWAYS come out unscathed and with the enemy dead). Ill see how episode 2 goes before i decide to drop or continue watching.

I honestly tried giving this anime a chance, but it was just SO freaking ridiculous I deleted it as soon as it was done. It was going ok until the big fight seen at the end. First, when she shoots with her hip like she is knocking down the bad guys with her waist. Then when half the attacking army full of bullet holes gets up again. Then when she gets 'serious' and starts to fight, reloading with her tits and all the fancy (useless) gunwork. I was watching this by myself and got so embarrased watching it. It was just that stupid. Don't get me wrong, I love tits and ass, but sheesh. She makes Pamela Anderson look like the president of the Itty Bitty Titty Committee. I will NOT be downloading episode two.

Am I the only one who thinks that the main bad guy bears an uncanny resemblance to a Dawn of War Big Mek?

I can just picture him using a cockney accent in the dub if there ever is one

Fan service is bad because it's hard enough telling people that anime isn't just cartoon porn. Hell fan service just ruins good stories, there is no way in hell Iím gona show my mates a show were the camera is on a cartoon girls breasts every two seconds. I'll still watch this, I can stomach this much fan service if the storyís decent but if someone else asked me about grenadier I would have to say, whatís Grenadier?

It's disturbing that cartoon sex sells so well in Japan, what ever happened to real girls?

Backwards.

Just because Americans are so damn prude doesnt mean that anime are cartoon porn. (australia is a state right? ;P) If you can only show kiddie shows to your friends then I pity you for having such immature friends. Some of the best shows this summer, such as dears and elfen, had tons of saabisu. They wouldnt be as good without it, imo.

Anyway, if I had to sum up this show I'd have to say looks like a silly female vash. I always disliked the "shooting people without killing them" type of shows, so I dont know if Ill follow this one or not yet.... as for saabisu so far its relatively tame, imo.

I see S.A.S.'s point about public perception. It really depends who your friends are really. I'd have no problem getting some (male) friends over to watch Grenadier... Mind you, I watch 99% of my anime alone since none of my friends really like anime as much as I do, and they have lives.

There are plenty of other anime out there with no or minimal fanservice. I can agree with the fanservice in this or something like Girls Bravo to be eccessive... but they are by definition fanservice/ecchi anime.

What I don't get is when people scream and swear not to watch something like Uta~Kata ever again just because of 3 very very brief panty shots in the first episode.

Well, in the end it's the viewer's choice of course, this is just how I feel when (I believe) people make a big deal about fanservice.

Yer Australia is a state of America, I mean we love them soo much *cough cough* (no offence, just generalising)

I don't really show my mates any Anime but they either think it's for 5 year olds or cartoon porn, so I usually end up watching it alone, call me a hypocrite or whatever but I generally try to avoid anime fans or computer people in RL. There just not fun to hang with.

I can live with fan service (and yes Dears and such need it) but I just donít see the point of it in other shows where itís not needed. When it comes down to it all anime is just cartons you watch to escape reality for a while. Why do you need fan service when you can just go out on Friday nights?

I think Grenaider would have been fine without it.

"I think Rushuna's quest is to be able to win any fight using breasts instead of combat. Seriously, I think that might be the premise of the anime. Plus, this anime has the line "Why did you come? I told you to pull out!""

Something uttered by a friend over IM. I might have to check out this anime now.

BWAHAHAHAHA.

That line can certainly be taken as sexual. But sorry to disappoint you... it's nothing of the sort.

Yeah, translations sometimes do that.

But to be fair, she did say something about using her breasts to remove people's will to fight. So like it or leave it, they are part of the story.

well, actually what your friend has said is quite true, albeit maybe not in the way you have interpreted it

The first episode was boring and predictable, I couldn't get into it. It reminded me more of madlax episode one than trigun (how dare you compare this shit to trigun).

However I will still be watching more espidoes to see how the story develops

Better reloading than unloading I say.

Thats the first thing I noticed too. Does anyone know this VA's name? He seems to be getting all the swordsman roles these days.
