Watch Gun X Sword

Gun X Sword is a television series which blends science fiction and a classic Western cowboy feel, creating a unique and intriguing story. The show, which is an anime, or Japanese animation, takes place on a world called the Planet of Endless Illusion. Some parts of the planet have a modern feel, but most places are very rustic. Either way, the planet is mostly lawless, making it both a dangerous and exciting place to live. Van, the main character of the series, is wandering the planet. He is in search of a man with one arm ending in a claw. This clawed man killed Van's bride, and now Van is determined to exact revenge. Unfortunately, Van does not know where to find the clawed man.

As Van travels the planet, he meets a young girl named Wendy. Wendy and her faithful turtle are searching for Michael, Wendy's brother. Wendy believes that Michael has been captured by the clawed man. Seeing that their goals more or less line up, Wendy asks to travel with Van. At first, Van wants nothing to do with her. However, Van can't seem to get rid of Wendy. They begin to travel together, and it soon becomes clear that Van needs Wendy as much as she needs him.

Van and Wendy continue to roam the planet, seeking any clues about the clawed man. As they travel, the pair encounter old friends of Van's and also meet many new and interesting people. In addition, as they gather more and more information, they learn that there is much more to the clawed man than meets the eye. They begin to uncover a large conspiracy and find themselves entangled in a stickier plot than they ever imagined. In addition, Wendy learns more about Van and discovers several startling secrets about his past.
