    ノー・ガンズ・ライフ

    A show about people being turned into weapons through cybernetic enhancements, such as a former soldier whose head has been turned into a gigantic gun. There's quite a big conspiracy going on. Has nothing to do with No Game, No Life.

    Airs: Thursday, October 10, 2019

    Studio: Madhouse

    Ex-soldier Juuzou Inui has one question—who turned him into a cyborg and erased his memories?

    After the war, cyborg soldiers known as the Extended were discharged. Juzo Inui is one of them, a man whose body was transformed, his head replaced with a giant gun! With no memory of his previous life—or who replaced his head and why—Inui now scratches out a living in the dark streets of the city as a Resolver, taking on cases involving the Extended.

    When a fellow Extended showed up in Inui's office—on the run from the Security Bureau with a kidnapped child in tow and asking for help—Inui should have just thrown the guy out. But Inui's loyalty to a brother Extended makes him take the job. Keeping the child safe won't be easy, since everyone seems to want to grab him, from street punks to the megacorporation Berühren, who have sent out a special agent that knows exactly how to deal with the Extended...

    Episode 1

    Son of a gun.

    Juuzo sure is badass there, and the fact that he has a gun for a head kind of puts an exclamation point on that. So it begins with Juuzo digging deep into some conspiracy Beruhren is cooking up, and what Tetsuro revealed there in the end is quite shocking. This "orphanage" ran by "nuns" is actually an experimental ground for creating humanoid weapons as the nuns are only there to carry out the dirty work. Pretty nice start there as Madhouse comes through once again with great animation, and I like the soundtrack that goes along with it. Still, it could be better, but overall it's something that I like to see. When I first saw this title, I thought it had something to do with No Game, No Life, but it's guns instead of games going on.

    Like always, trial rules are in effect and it will be a couple of more episodes before I make the call.
