Jet Bin Fever - 2012-05-27 So it's like Gunsmith Cats without the cats. At least the end was sort of interesting.
Chalkdust - 2012-05-27 Kenichi Sonoda was working on Riding Bean as a proposed anime series, but only one episode was produced. It features Bean Bandit and Rally Vincent (though she's blonde and fair-skinned here). After the series fell through, he went on to do Gunsmith Cats (as a manga first and then a short OAV), and Bean was a regular supporting cast member.
And that's your anime neckbeard history lesson for today!
gmol - 2012-05-27 Wow. And here I thought all of anime was completely original.
I saw a GITS scene and with the bullets eating at the wall...and Riding Bean looks a lot like Figure Four from Alita...
takewithfood - 2012-05-27 My comment didn't show up along with my stars for some reason, so I'll say it again: teenage me loved this. Gunsmith cats, too.
