This is an anime that starts off real hot. The first episode is like a glimpse into the future of the protagonist. It starts off with some creatures that look like zombies running after or rather hunting a truck. It’s snowing when the chase ends in the middle of a bridge. The zombies close in on the truck. Just then, our main character emerges guns blazing shooting anything and everything in sight, a simply great opener.
The rest of this mini-series tells the story of what preceded before this mind blowing first episode. In the next majority it tells the how the main character was in the local gangs and then joins mob and becomes their enforcer. Then a villain comes out of jail and along with his partner in crime head up destruction against Brandon Heat, the main character. Brandon ultimately sells his soul in order to protect the ones he loves. GunGrave has a great story but personally a little boring during the beginning mob scenes for me mainly because I am not into mobster movies.
