No Guns Life Episode 2: The quest for Tanegashima


Juuzou assaults a train

This series is surprisingly fun for how it looks. I can't believe I just watched an episode in which the bad guy's master plan was to buy up all of the cigarettes that the main character liked. That's a special type of evil. As a result, this series seems more like a mix of serious and ridiculous, rather than just silly, and I think it benefits from that overall.

Juuzou reaches out to Tetsurou

Watching Juuzou in action was cool. So far, he seems like a typical brawler with explosive fists you'd see in a video game, but it works given his appearance. I'm a bit surprised at how easy it was for him to save Takerou, though. It makes you wonder why it couldn't have happened at the end of the previous episode.

Mary saves a girl

This week's episode also delves more into the anatomy behind the Extended with the introduction of Mary, the mechanic. The concept behind them isn't too crazy (and might be arguably simplistic), so I don't really have much of a comment there. Now, I just wonder how an Over-Extended is supposed to be different.

Cunningham threatens Juuzou

It looks like we'll be joining Juuzou in a crusade against the entire Beruehren Corporation. Cunningham probably isn't their best representative, but he certainly knows how to make an entrance (and an exit).

Juuzou recovers from the battle

One thing that I think is interesting about the series is that it makes me question what people say on screen in a way that doesn't feel overtly subversive. Juuzou claims that he doesn't have a dependency on the Tanegashima cigarettes, but he acts like someone experiencing withdrawal. It makes you question how much of that was a bluff.

In addition to that, Tetsurou is introduced as the son of the CEO of Beruehren right as Juuzou is mentioning how much the corporation covered up the story. It makes you doubt that particular piece of information until it's later confirmed.
