The Gung-Ho Guns just have firearms coming out of every orifice, don’t they? I must reiterate that whoever's behind this would’ve been seriously at home in the early 90s comics scenes. Is it reassuring that the "tacky extreme" knows no national bounds? I haven't decided. Though to be fair, the gimmicks are getting more appealing. I especially liked the 8-ball/turtle shell guy and the mech giant who bares all (so to speak.)
Moving on... I never expected to be so moved by a dude with a pompadour, but here we are. Brad’s final speech about how foolish the air dwellers have been and his dying words were all quite touching. I guess that leaves Vash to the pig tail girl with one less shred of indecency (the age gap being the other one, of course.)
I’m starting to think that this whole show’s about inaccurate reputations. Vash is thought of as a psycho killer and skirt chaser, when he’s really neither; and Wolfwood honestly isn’t even living up to his rep. For one, aside from the cross and the chainsmoking, there's little about him that screams "priest." You don’t hear him quoting scripture or thumping a Bible. He did offer confessions early on, but he seems to have forgotten all about that. And he actually isn’t the stone cold killer you lunatics have made him out to be, either! He hasn't really been killing wantonly (to borrow a term from FMA;) he's been taking these bad guys out only when the time's right (and that payback with the Puppet Master was great, if I can say.)
This episode’s titled “Out of Time” and there are, indeed, only five episodes left in this series - - just one disc in the box set! I’m honestly kind-of hoping it could whiz by faster, because this series is really going on longer than it should. Like I said, it wish it’d been a shorter, tighter series of about 13 or episodes.
