    The Anime OVA 'Gunsmith Cats'... well... it's a Girls with Guns series, and like nearly all Girls with Guns series (BurnUp, BurnUp W, BurnUp Excess, BurnUp Scramble, Najica Blitz Tactics, Agent Aiko, Original Dirty Pair, Dirty Pair Flash, Burst Angel...) there isn't much of a story, and lots of action, explosions and fanservice shots of Girls (with Guns!!!) 'Gunsmith Cats' is somewhat unique that it includes 'Muscle Cars' in addition to guns...

    The only exceptions to poor story development with 'Girls with Guns' series is 'Noir', and 'Madlax'. both of these series are very good, but have SLOW plot development... (Madlax, with it's 4th DVD release, the two main characters still haven't met face to face...)

    It's odd that you would say that, cause I thought that there was a rether well thought out story in Gunsmith Cats.

    'Gunsmith Cats' does have a story, but most of it serves as an excuse for the action and fanservice shots. Compared to the other 'Girls with Guns' series, doesn't stand out (well, maybe a little) against the likes of the 'Dirty Pair', or the 'Burn Up' series... But compared against the likes of the very stylistic atmosphere of 'Noir', 'Gunsmith Cats' is just a oil stain on the pavement...

    I think your trying to compare apples to ornges here. Gunsnith Cats lasted 3 episodes where all the others have had several made. As far as these "fanservice shots" the only ones I can think of are a couple of shots of Rally in here undies @ the end of episode 1. Hardly compairable to something like Dirty Pair which has cleavege showing in almost every scene. Same with the Burn up series. Perhaps Noir and Madlax are compearable, but not having seen either of them I can't make a fair judgement.

    Fanservice shots aren't limited to just 'sexy' images. The term also applies to 'beauty shots', which includes posturing (common with Gundam Mechas) CGI cut scenes, and with this anime genre, Girls blasting away with firearms. More to the point, if all the scenes with 'Girls blazing away with Firearms' was removed, how much of the story would be left???

    Not that there's anything bad with 'Girls with Guns' genre series, as they are entertaining, but very few of them will rank among the 'Great All Times Anime' series... (both 'Noir', and 'Madlax' have made it onto serveral Top 100 and Top 200 lists that I've seen...)
