Gunbuster... Gungrave - Yeah, I had the wrong show on my Watchlist.
I'm sorry for whoever goes into the show based on the promo art because it is really misleading. The show is the sequel to a PS2 game and also opens in that setting; "Beyond the Grave" (the guy on the cover) fighting some monsters. Come the second episode and you're back to him and his friends in their late teens being members of a crime gang. From that point on the story follows them as they join the Mafia and grow older back up to the point where the first episode started. Can't say that is the best way to go about it as a standalone title.
While there are some good episodes along the road once it shifted for it's ending I didn't care for much of it. The shows core is really the relationship between Brandon and Harry and not the peng peng.
The look of the show is rather dated because Madhouse improved on everything since then and it even resembles their later Hellsing Ultimate.
Given that the previous commentators here really enjoyed the show it might appeal to others more but for me it was a true mixed bag.
