It's there a condition to become a hands of a GSU?, like the revolver hand they have?, I thought of tetsuro or mary becoming a temporary hand to unleash his true power in cases like this, but I think it would be too convenient.

They need a special arm/hand extension. The guy who went after Juzo a few episodes ago had one in his flashback, and so does Pepper. The best regular humans can do is pull the trigger on the head, not the one on the body.

pretty big burden juzo has, I thought he did it one by one but it was more than that and we see how special he is when awaken.

We've been told about it countless times, but now we saw with our own eyes why Gun Slave units are such a big deal. Juzo's flashback was really well done.

Juzo's flashback was quite the sequence. We knew Juzo killed other Gun slave units, but seeing it is something different. Especially seeing him pick on a weakened group by giving them false hope and then eliminate them.

Ouch. That was a pretty effective, although brutal tactic to run with. Certainly he could beat all those guys fighting them individually, but there would be risks to it. Gathering them in one place and unleashing one big attack would be a simpler method. Still, that was pretty rough.

Wouldn't have been that easy though if not for circumstances. If they had even one Hands left in good shape you never know. But with all of them dead and Juzo ready to go...that was that.

Should make for a strong episode when he can actually put up a real fight against Seven. The only question is whether he can beat him without killing him.

Really liked what they went with. Tetsuro didn't pull Juzo's trigger, he instead gave him the opportunity to do it himself.

Pepper lost her "hands" and Seven is in bad shape, doesn't seem like they have much of a future unless they decide to run far, far away. Berurhen would probably want to keep Seven, but it's over for Pepper if they get retrieved by them.

That was a nice way to go about it. Give Juzo the push and the chance to pull the trigger himself. Let him take action and fulfill his own desires and not simply hiding away behind only fulfilling the desires of others.

No shock the fight didn't last long once Juzo got going. Can throw in his personal growth as a character. But also he's straight up designed to bring down similar units.

Will have to see what happens going forward here. Might wake Seven up enough to actually prioritize saving Pepper's life. Of course with as messed up as she is, probably won't appreciate it. But she can only complain if she is still alive. Can somewhat say they lucked out with Berurhen holding up on going after Tetsuro. But pretty obvious conspiracy behind the scenes beyond simply wanting to see the full potential of harmony.

Juzo being the strongest of the GSU, I mean he already has seven in knees and he only used one arm.

I think seven will die and pepper will live.

Considering that Juzo has struggled with being a tool for others, it only makes sense that the right solution would be to give him a chance to pull his trigger himself.

Nothing was concluded but that's to be expected from an on-going manga. Juzo's former partner is dead, right? At least that's how I interpreted the final scene. He'll never get to reunite with him, but he found what his partner wished for him.

Shame this series was so unpopular. The concept of a hero with a gun for a head seemed ridiculous, but it worked thanks to the great world building and character development. And you totally get used to it.

There was no sense of a send-off here as the episode ended like how story arcs ended. However, there's a lot more to deal with. Extends are being seen as potentially destructive beings after what happened to the Armed Sai Tokisada Memorial, and Beruhren is starting to be more direct in their approach, this time "retrieving" (read: outright stealing) a Gun Slave Unit from an active Hands. The fate of Juuzo's original Hands is also teased again, almost to the point of being a Schrodinger's Hands scenario.

Overall I liked the concept of No Guns Life. Let's hope we get more of our resident hard-boiled gun-for-a-head soon.

ENTRY #375 GET.

I thought that pepper didn't care about seven, but she really did. Maybe one day they will reunite, seven isn't dead.

7/10.

Not really much of a resolution, but that's to be expected considering the manga is still ongoing. Hopefully we get another season.

Hopefully this gets a second season eventually. IIRC, the manga also is currently around this point
