Grenadier is an action-packed anime series that aired on WOWOW from 2004 to 2005, featuring voice actors Megan Hollingshead, Dorothy Elias-Fahn, and Mikako Takahashi. The show revolves around the story of a beautiful and deadly swordsman named Rushuna Tendo, who is on a mission to bring peace to a world torn apart by war.

Set in a world similar to feudal Japan, Grenadier tells the story of Rushuna Tendo, a skilled swordsman who travels the countryside with her loyal companion, a lecherous but skilled gunman named Yajiro Kojima. In this world, various factions are warring for control, and it's up to Rushuna to use her skills and wits to bring peace to the people.

At the start of the series, Rushuna is introduced as a mysterious wanderer who takes on odd jobs in exchange for food and lodging. However, she soon proves herself as an unstoppable force when she intervenes in a conflict between two warring samurai factions. Through her innate ability to sense others' emotions and intent, she quickly becomes a sought-after ally, sought after by both sides of the conflict.

As the series progresses, Rushuna continues to travel across the country, accumulating allies and enemies alike. Along the way, she is joined by other skilled warriors, such as the devoted samurai Mikan Kurenai and the sharpshooter Teppa Aizen.

Despite her stunning combat skills, Rushuna's true strength lies in her ability to understand and empathize with those around her. She has an unwavering dedication to achieving peace, even if it means putting herself in danger. Her compassion and unwavering resolve often win over those who would otherwise be her enemies.

The series showcases a wide variety of battles, ranging from large scale skirmishes to intense one-on-one duels. The swordplay is expertly choreographed, and the gunplay is equally impressive. The show also features a wide variety of weaponry, from traditional Japanese swords to modern firearms, adding to the diverse range of combat styles.

In addition to its thrilling action, Grenadier also has a strong comedic element. The show often pokes fun at itself, indulging in slapstick humor and sexual innuendos. However, the comedy never undermines the series' serious themes of war, morality, and the importance of compassion.

Overall, Grenadier is a must-watch for fans of action-packed anime. It provides a unique blend of thrilling combat, thought-provoking themes, and laugh-out-loud comedy. With its lovable characters and beautiful animation, this series is sure to captivate audiences from beginning to end.

Grenadier is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (12 episodes). The series first aired on October 14, 2004.
