Brandon Heat and Harry MacDowel, two friends so close they could be called brothers, receive an abrupt and violent reminder one fateful day of how appallingly merciless the world around them can be. Their whole lives before then were simple and easygoing, consisting largely of local brawls, seducing women, and committing petty theft to make a living and pass the time. What they failed to realize is that in this cruel world, happiness is fleeting, and change is inevitable. Enter Millennion, the largest and most infamous mafia syndicate in the area, which accepts Brandon and Harry into their ranks and starts them at the bottom of the food chain. Harry has ambitions to ascend the ranks and one day replace Big Daddy as the supreme leader of Millennion, while Brandon only wishes to support his friend and appease Big Daddy who has taken custody of the woman Brandon loves. Based off the third-person shooter video game under the same name, Gungrave is an epic story of friendship, betrayal, and avarice that spans the course of several years, ultimately tying back to the gripping and foreboding first episode, all the while building up to the story's thrilling conclusion.

This starts as a really crappy demon/ghost anime and ends as an okish one. The middle 8 episodes are like the best gangster anime ever tho


A fantastic story with great characters. One of the best anime based on a video game.


A gripping story of the friendship of two men rising the ranks of the mafia, and the ultimate confrontation of their differing ideals.


Amazing first half mediocre to bad second half




A part of me is wishing that the down to earth mafia story would have went on but the Nightow brand of crazy was still entertaining to watch


The story is Berserk taking pages from the Godfather.
