Gun X Sword was a series I'd never heard of. Not even a whisper. Nothing. In fact, the only reason I originally took it was because it sounded like an action show, and I was in the mood to watch one. When I saw the cover of the DVD, I was immediately intrigued by the main character's design. He was tall and lanky, and looked like he had an attitude. Just my type. I also saw that the show was directed by Goro Taniguchi, who also worked on Code Geass and S-CRY-ed. I had totally loved Code Geass so already I was expecting great things.
