Welcome to the Gun Sword WikiEdit
Gun Sword (ガン × ソード), stylized Gun X Sword, is a Japanese animated television series produced by AIC A.S.T.A. The series is directed by Gorō Taniguchi and written by Hideyuki Kurata.
Gun Sword is an Anime series detailing the travels of a Vagabond bent on avenging his late fiance's death, and a young girl who at first seeks to find her kidnapped older brother, but then turns to become confused misunderstanding the reasons for her leaving home.
The story is set on the "Planet of Endless Illusion", a place where rogues of all sorts gather. The protagonist, Van, travels the world searching for a man with a clawed right hand who killed his bride. He is joined by several other travelers along the way, each linked to the clawed man by a personal loss.
The series was licensed for North America by Geneon Entertainment, who produced a English dub overseen by New Generation Pictures. New Generation's English language version is also available in Australia from Madman Entertainment and in the United Kingdom by MVM Films. At Anime Central 2010, North American anime distributor Funimation Entertainment announced that they have rescued Gun Sword and re-released the series in late 2010.
