What I Liked: The background art. The setting. The attention to detail in everything, from the series' depiction of Chicago to the weaponry used. The soundtrack is an amazing mixture of jazz that invokes some of the classic 80's action flicks. Sound design is great. What little "fan-service" the series has is surprisingly harmless and unobtrusive. English dub has good performances all round. The animation is fluid, with exceptional gunfight and car chase choreography.
What I Didn't: NITPICK: Some perspective gaffs.
Final Verdict: With a bombastic soundtrack and lively cast of characters that evoke the gun-and-car-saturated fun of 80's comedy-action flicks, Gunsmith Cats is an incredibly well-researched and entertaining romp through 1990's Chicago. It's short, sweet and the lead duo are absolutely brilliant to watch. On my Favourite Anime of All Time list.
