Now this was a gem that was watched not too long ago (two days ago to be exact). The series follows one Jonah and his dealings with the arms dealer Koko Hekmatyar. Though, there's a slight twist: Jonah is a child soldier who hates weaponry and those who sell them after having his village bombed by weapons sold to the local militia. After being hired, Jonah follows around Koko and her other bodygaurds from location to location, usually shooting things along the way. The plot itself is episodic, with each episode essentially as a stand alone or as part of a series within the series. Along the way, there are many philosophical questions raised, from morality to "is it good to sell weapons to save the world?".

The animation for the series is very good, with almost everything in high detail. From the weapons themselves to the characters. It gives an appreciation for the weapons, characters, and locations. The forests look like forests; the ZPU anti-arcraft guns look like the real thing. This also helps add to the realism that the animators were trying to produce.

The music for the series is a little bit of everything; it goes from rap/hip-hop to electronic music, and even classical if needed. This eclectic aspect helps add to what emotion is meant to be conveyed to the viewer.

Overall, it's a great series in how it depects the human mind and mentality.
