GUNSMITH CATS is a fantastic three-episode Anime series that will have you in fits of laughter one minute and breathless with suspense the next. It is a great rollercoaster ride.

The story concerns two street-savvy young women from Chicago; Rally Vincent and Minnie May Hopkins. Together they run the over-the-counter gun shop Gunsmith Cats and also are available for hire as crime-fighters.

This fantastic three-part series is a great and entertaining adventure. As the girls fight druglords and pimps, they end up being pursued by a lethal Russian hit-woman and in fear of their lives.

The voice of Rally Vincent is provided in the dubbed version by veteran Anime voice artist Amanda Winn, who has also dubbed for NEON GENESIS EVANGELION and SUKEBAN DEKA.

The DVD includes the original Japanese making-of documentary and various trailers and TV spots for the series.

About this movie

Wiki

Based on a popularmangaby Kenichi Sonoda, this three-part original animation video follows the adventures of two outrageous heroines: crack shot and part-time bounty hunter Rally Vincent and her blond sidekick, Minnie May Hopkins, who specializes in explosives. They operate a gun shop on an otherwise quiet Chicago side street and share a suburban house that resembles an arsenal. Bill Collins, an officer with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, draws the duo against their will into an investigation of a gunrunning ring. The operation begins with a simple stakeout but grows darker and more violent as Rally, Minnie May, and Bill take on Major Radinov, a former KGB agent turned freelance assassin, who insists on being paid in heroin. Radinov murders government agents, informants, and the chief of the Chicago ATF with steely indifference. She leads Rally and Minnie May in a high-speed car chase that gives new meaning to the termroad rage, then plays a deadly game of cat and mouse in an old Beaux Arts building. Handsomely designed and skillfully executed,Gunsmith Catsis slick, fast-paced, and extremely violent. Director Takeshi Mori builds suspense and tension so effectively, he imbues the shootouts and stabbings with an impact many gorier anime series lack. Not rated; suitable for ages 16 and up for occasional profanity and explicit violence.--Charles Solomon
