Gunm is one of the titles that becomes back bone of the scifi genre in manga , it is a classic , a reference to all your future, present or past readings.. Nowaday with internet scans , most readers are young in the area , they started reading naruto and think they ve seen everything… when really Gunm was already a legend years before…

It is a cyberpunk feast , it gets deep , its multilayered, its intense , its mysterious , its philosophic , it mix bible , legends , science , gore, martial arts and epicness all together to make this wonderful and rich scify world… expect to be surprised at the cross of this cowboy hunting scifi utopia world that is about to drown you.

Story: is mind-blowing , its a very relevant and interesting quest into the memories of the heroin , but don't think that its only that !!! because of course things will go crazy.

dialogue: it s fun , its deep , but sometime its a little hard to follow , i don't think it s bad , in fact i m glad the dialogue is for once rich and interesting , and not only a compilation of : "I'm gonna kill you , i love her , i m gonna save all of them , just wait for me" wich usually is the main dialogue in most manga ,,, no here , even if you might find some of this : be prepared to get into relativity theories or plato philosophies … it is still very well done since , don't be scared , even if you are not a genius , u ll enjoy it , and it s not so deep that you can't follow with a little work on ur part.

Animation : well , it has a very stylish cyberpunk style , very well done , of course this one is a little old so you might find a the style a little out of date , yet , it has a very good design overall and fluid animation.

Overall: well its one of the finest manga to read… its awesome , and it is one of those title you remember for years … so i wouldn't mind recommending it to friends or anyone … its a strong read , and even if you don't think you ll like it , i encourage you to at least try to read the first 4 chapters to have an idea of this all time classic manga.
