I even have five volumes at home. I kind of regret that I stopped buying them and the volumes I'm missing now fetch some stupid prices on the second hand market. I'm talking about a non-English release here.
Watch the OVA, at least.
No because I'm really fucking lazy.
Watched the OVA about a year ago though. Great stuff. Rally a cute.
Before I got the DVD of the OVA I downloaded all I could get a few years ago which was the Spanish dub of the first episode. Which is awful. Don't watch that, ever. Becky's voice is the worst.
I'm actually working on a video listing every gun in the OVA. Was the manga ever officially translated into english?
yup, unless there's someone else on 4chan doing anime reviews. I've got to finish up a video on Panzer World Galient first, but Gunsmith cats is going to be somewhere in the pipeline. The amount of work they put into accurately portraying the weapons in the OVA is insane. They went as far as to manually fire each gun in real life to record the sound of each gun, then gave that to the American dub team to use as mixes for the english version.
Same goes for the cars driven in the OVA. They really went the extra mile & it shows.
Does anyone know where I can find a better version of the OVA? The release on bakabt is really unclear, & I keep seeing square artifact which gets on my nerves. If I can't find a better version online I may as well buy the DVDs. They can't be that expensive.
yup, I'm aiming for one old anime video a week if I can can help it. I'm sure someone else could have done that mellowlink video better, but I don't think anyone else would have bothered in the first place.
Still trying to track down the laserdiscs.
Yeah, the OVA is sort of a standalone story.
So there's no required reading to understand what's going on.
Still, the animation team did a ton of research, including flying out to Chicago to take pictures and get the feel of the city down.
The climactic car chase actually follows the actual streets of the city so well than you could follow it on a map.
Not sure how much Chicago has changed its streets in the past 20+ years though.
California Crisis had a really cool look to it.
It sure did deepfag, it SURE did. I basically view it as a really long laid back music video. It's really rewatchable. That's another one I need a laserdisc of.
>That might be due to the only source being a super degraded VHS rip.
Was it not released on Laserdisc?
Found this on google images. Is this a laserdisc or a soundtrack? If it's a laserdisc then that's just one more rare OVA I have to track down.
yeah, I guess you're right
but how can Rally be you're waifu if she is a lesbian?
She made me love delicious brown AND delicious Czechshit
Too bad WASP May had such a shit design.
The nigger punches through car doors and tears them off with casual ease, he also can straight up catch and stop a car with the pedal floored. It's not that his bandana is bullet proof; it's that his skull is just that fucking hard.
California Crisis is pretty much known only because of its OST.
you can keep an eye on weapons grade waifus but as far as i know they flew off the shelves as soon as they came out.
>Rally helps return the memories of the bitch who tried to make her a slave
>as thanks, she immediately brainwashes her lesbian friend and makes her an irreversably loyal love slave
>Rally chooses to leave her that way so she can get over her and be happy
>Rally retires into obscurity forever
How could anybody approve of this shit?
I was joking before, but the entire premise of the villain does remind me a touch of pic related.
She essentially stole her father's name so she could continue to use his gun license.
It's more identity theft than anything else, but it's played mostly for yucks.
And here I was thinking that the politics of Gunsmith Cats boiled down to guns being cool and brown girls being hot.
That is an interesting note about the CZ-75's false history actually starting with the manga, I always assumed that myth was bouncing around long before.
Either you failed to send your AB application form or answered like a total idiot.
>Why won't those stupid idiots let me into their crappy club for jerks?
Or it's that attitude problem of yours.
I joined ADC when they had open signups, so dunno how hard they are to get in. Looks like they have applications now as well.
>tfw I was able to get vol 4 on the cheap
>tfw I haven't read it yet after having it for like 4 months, because I will feel sad when i finish it
>tfw that sadness causes me to buy Burst
All of these emotions, and I can't deal with anyone of them
She even took herbs to inhibit further growth of her body (Dark Horse changed it so she'd been TRYING to grow up more but couldn't).
Sonoda really, really likes /l/, evidently.
They also went to Chicago to make sure they accurately portrayed the city. As a Chicagoan, I can say they did a damn good job. At the very least better than Watch_Dogs.
Exaxxion COULD have been good if Sonoda was able to keep his fetishes in check.
Burst was an absolute disgrace. I don't mind May leaving to have kids with Ken but come the fuck on, Rally would never desert her friend to drugged-out hypno slavery (even if her friend was happy about it).
Characters behaving like wildly different people than they were in the previous series, mainly. The gunfighting and driving are still badass but Rally--who hates drug runners so much she made Bean swear not to run drugs and was previously Goldie's sex slave--is totally okay with Goldie retaking Chicago's drug market and turning Misty into a sex slave.
I think it's like >>133128389 said and Sonoda just wanted to close down the manga as hard as he could.
Yeah, goldie is drug mafia don. She uses drugs to brainwash people into slavery. She did this to rally and misty yet rally forgives it all because bs reasons and even allows her friend misty to stay with goldie to be a drugged sex slave. Rally quits and practices her skills, the end. The end was complete trash and an insult to the characters.
>Did this to Rally
Was this only in Burst by any chance?
Wait, what? No, she brainwashed Rally towards the end of GSC. Rally managed to resist but she almost ended up killing Roy Campbell.
Maybe Goldie didn't fuck her before the drugs wore off, but she was absolutely Goldie's slave.
>yet rally forgives it all because bs reasons
If it was just that Rally knew Goldie would keep gang violence to a minimum and so let her keep operating, that'd be one thing. Rally has made reluctant deals with criminals in the past. If Misty had 100% WILLINGLY gone over to Goldie and Goldie wasn't using Misty as a Rally surrogate, that'd be one thing. But Misty admits she's not sure whether she's hypnotized or just doesn't care, and Goldie HAS A SHRINE DEDICATED TO RALLY IN HER HOUSE.
So Rally has coffee with Misty, then gives her one passionate kiss (so passionate it validates the "celibate lesbian" idea) and a pat on the ass and then lets it all happen. As you say, an insult to the characters. Sonoda never should've returned to the manga.
Not really. Inspector Percy from Riding Bean shows up and he's pretty entertaining, but the overall plotting is lackluster.
It does have plenty of May fanservice (cosplay included), so there's that. And Rally gives a bunch of celebrities a thorough lesson about not shooting two guns at once or holding guns sideways, that part's fun.
Oh yeah, Sonoda even showed her bruised body and panties around her ankle. It felt a little gratuitous, even for such a dark manga.
GSC's villains don't fuck around, but this guy was a one-off nobody.
Lel what a faggot.
Like I said it just came off as gratuitous compared to the rest of the shit that goes down in the manga. It was a filler chapter where a no-name bad guy rapes and kills someone while he's basically hanging around waiting for Rally to get there.
But eh, it's not enough to ruin the manga for me, so who cares. I did like how Rally had to think on her feet since she only had that shitty saturday night special to work with.
Is he actually? That's weird, I figured Sonada was going for a super western story, native american would have made more sense.
I guess it doesn't really matter, she's ambiguously brown for all anyone cares.
I own the DVD set and have rip the episode out in full raw with no compression. If you want, just shot and I will see if I can upload on Mega so you can download it. Note: it will be almost 4GB in size for all 3 episodes.
So, I remember watching a movie and I think it MIGHT have been a Gunsmith Cats thing.
All I remember is a female villain punching a mirror.
Is that in anything? This was over a decade ago when I had almost no exposure to anime.
Nonsense. Everyone deserves more Rally.
I don't think so. It might be another anime movie or maybe Riding Bean which is basically a spin off. Didn't watch that movie yet but they will release it on Blu-ray by Animeigo if they get enough money to start doing it sometime next year. GunSmith Cat's have only the two manga and the OVA. If you never read or watch this franchise, just go watch the OVA. If you love the OVA, then go read the manga.
Whatever it was it would have been playing on Encore or some such american movie network.
I had another memory of an anime I saw back then but someone told me it was that series of OVAs that starts with a U and has demons and rape and shit in it and if that was airing in the US I'd be shocked.
Why not? Everyone else has used her.
The other anime you might have watch is call Urotsukidoji: Legend of the Overfiend. You can get the DVD or Blu-ray of part of the series in North America right now if you like those stuff.
I won't be too surprise if they did play one of the show in the US but it might be at the time where most people won't watch TV like 1am to 4am in the morning. Still, not really something I care too much but somehow it got into my Anime DVD/Blu-ray collection when I bought someone else anime collection. That guy own few Hentai anime DVD and manage to get some of them with a huge of other anime show together in a bundle.
Okay, I notice this thread will max up before I can finish upload the rest of the show here so, to make sure you can get all three episodes, I will upload the link of the folder where I will put the entire show in. The link below is what you need to click in to get the file. I don't know how long I will keep the episode on but I will give your guys at least a week before I take it down. As of now, Ep 01 is up and will add the rest when I can get them upload here.
For the guy who need this for the review and checking what guns in this show, here are some more info which might (or might not) be useful for you. This is the ADV DVD version of the show. The same as the one on Bakabt which everyone here have download and watch. The only different this is actually my own collection I own and manage to rip it with MakeMKV software. So, this is as raw as you can get from the DVD so, they shouldn't have any compression issue or very little. I do hope this help you with your review and credit me when you can. As for the rest of Anon here, hope this rip will be useful for you if you want a copy of the show.
I just watched this because of the thread and well what do I know, I liked it.
It's chock-full of nonsense and blah blah blah I don't need to be an ANN Review of a post but the whole feeling it tries to capture of possible 30-somethings going about their glory days of yesteryear after meeting up with a spunky not-quite-loli seem to just work well enough to give it charm.
And when I was thinking the nonsense was going to lay it real thick by explaining what the stupid ball was they didn't go there.
Ep 02 is now up. Also, someone need to see if they can download the 1st episode. If it work, I guess it's working but I am betting the bandwidth with MEGA won't let a lot of people to download the stuff too long.
I...I'll masturbate to a picture of her! Then she'll truly be mine! And leave you, just a mere pretender!
Ep 03 will be upload tomorrow when I go back online here. Yea, you guys will have to wait for a bit but will see if I can upload when at work. Keep that link alive so you can get all three episode. Also, anyone want the Making of GunSmith Cats? If not, then I won't upload it as it's a waste of bandwidth for me here. Hope the upload is worth it and if I do take it down, hope someone will upload it somewhere else so it can be share.
It ain't official until you fuck her
Anime review guy here. I took a nap & when I woke up the links were dead. I'm just hoping ADC takes my application at this point.
Thanks for the hard work.
>doesn't contain the 3rd audio track with the voice actors talking about the behind the scenes production techniques that were used with the Japanese audio team
You had one job anon.
Much better, thank you. I can actually make out the crosshatching on the handles of the guns now, & I can make out a few other finer details too. This should help quite a bit. Wish Bakabt didn't label their scrubbed releases as "definitive". It's really misleading.
The version they have there also cropped out at least 5% of the image around the frame too, which was surprising.
rather have something than nothing at all
So it's not IMPOSSIBLE, but there's a low chance I could go to the locations they used as reference shots in chicago to make the OVA. Is there any way to know what exact locations they used?
It's a decent drive, & finding out exactly where they got their reference shots from would be difficult.
That, & it's chicago. Most people don't like others walking around taking photographs.
Another problem would be the obvious. It's been 20 years so those places may not even look the same.
Just checked out every shooting range in chicago through google maps. Doesn't look like this exists anymore. Damn shame. Getting a picture of the actual gunsmith cats shooting range would have been great.
Pretty sure 1 is a Luger, 2 is a Browning Hi-power and 3 is a colt.
Don't know anything about revolvers though.
In the off chance that I ever have a daughter I'm naming her Irene.
oh god, i'm an absolute idiot when it comes to these things, i've got the files downloaded and all and i've got divx all fired up but it doesn't want to play
am i supposed to be using a different player
spoonfeed me here, i'm terrible at this stuff
If there was a laserdisc nobody has seen it. You'd need to search old OVA catalogues and translate them.
Finding a decent quality VHS would do, RokuBlues got an OVA which looks alright for VHS
Thanks for the free shipping on books though
Reminds me of Zero In. I'll have to check out where can I find the translated scans.
This is a setting where rape-y fetish-y mind control drugs exist and are in use, on the character we're talking about no less. That is of no consequence.
A touch, yeah.
But May is just a slut who likes explosives. Rally is a refined piece of fine brown ass that appreciates the finer things in life, such as muscle cars and an Eastern Block wonder 9's sheer volume of fire.
I only moved to the city 8 years ago (suburb kid), but given how much EVERY neighborhood has changed according to friends/members of my family who've lived here for decades I doubt many of the places look the same. Aside from the roads in the chase scene and the museums and the el tracks, anyway.
Still, maybe I can rewatch it tonight and see if I recognize any intersections.
So if memory serves, Ken's abstinent with actual kids (May finds his magazines and asks why he'll look at those but not her). But Ken when thought May was a boy, he wanted to set May up with a prostitute. Isn't that kind of a double standard?
Handguns and concealed carry were outlawed in Chicago for a while, but long guns have always been legal here. Now handguns and concealed carry are legal too. The regulations were well-intentioned but since any gangbanger could drive into Indiana and come back with a trunk full of pistols in less 3 hours they didn't do shit.
I remember this arc. At one point one of the kids expresses concern about Ken being alone with the girl they're protecting; May insists it's fine, since Ken is only interested in May; the kid points out May and the girl currently look exactly alike; May freaks out.
If memory serves, in the original Japanese the kids remind May Ken is a pedo ("demo, lolicon?") instead of just saying she and the girl look alike. Was funnier.
Everyone, anon. May lived a hard life and found someone who loved her for who she was.
Ah, damn it.
Shit, it's been a while. I should buy the omnibus books and reread it all.
I'm rereading it at the moment and fucking hell, enough antagonists have offered to relieve her of that burden. You can't go 20 pages without some kind of attempted rape or something in that vein. Even the women liberate Rally from her clothing on a regular basis.
>tfw Rally would nearly be 40 in present day
Does that make May the ultimate MILF?
Don't think about it. Noa Izumi should be about 37 right now.
Who would in a gun fight, Rally or Revy?
Isn't two guns at once Revy's thing? Rally's a far better shot and could reload faster with one pistol than Revy could with two.
Still, assuming she can't run for cover, she'd probably blow off one or both of Revy's trigger fingers but suffer a fatal wound in the process.
thanks anon, just went and bought one
they went after midwest guns in lyons for some reason. i agree with some laws for straw buying but everyone knows that the south side criminals get their shit from indiana
>but everyone knows that the south side criminals get their shit from indiana
and this is why I'm annoyed when people go "oh strict gun control works? LOOK AT CHICAGO LOL." Indiana's fucked up our attempts at gun control for years and years.
i believe in proper gun ownership for people but indiana really fucks everything up for us
i got my foid but i still cant get a gun until i move into my own place some where else
Would anyone be interested in translating Bullet The Wizard? It's one of Sonoda's more current works.
Bullet the Wizard actually finished a couple of years back. It never got much of a following and Sonoda himself admits that it's not his best. He's currently working with AnimEigo on the Otaku no Video re-release.
I still don't get how the man who convinced of Rally could ever look at a situation and go 'yes, this seems like it would convince her to let the woman who mindraped and probably actually raped her go, while also letting a friend basically become a drugged-up mind controlled sex slave'.
The power of fetishes is strong.
...the entire Mr. V arc?
We don't have direct evidence that Goldie *fucked* Rally, but we do know she drugged and hypnotized Rally enough to make her try to kill Roy. Not to mention she made Rally fight her own hypnotized long-lost father.
Goldie mindraped Rally. Goldie wanted to rape Rally (although we're not sure if she actually got the chance). Rally knows she mindfucked her and knows she wanted to rape her and knows she mindfucked and raped numerous young girls before her--not only that, she made those girls murder their families so they'd rather stay hypnotized than ever leave Goldie.
I am convinced he just hated the series and was sick of fans asking him for more.
That's not a case where that kind of morality can even come into it. 'Compassion' does not apply here. Ai Tanabe would tell you to lock her up and throw away the key, short of putting a bullet between her eyes. Those are horrific crimes that deserve punishment.
He was talking about the gun shop still being there now.
And were they outlawed long enough to drive a gun store out of business? Yes.
Yeah, now apply your gun control opinion to the wide open border with Mexico and the cartels making over $13 billion a year smuggling drugs and slaves.
Her name is Larry.
Rally isn't a name at all.
Good thing someone posted download links
I wish we had more threads like this
They're nice and cozy and have lots of good wanking material
