The plot can only be described as a muddle. Tochiro is looking for the survivors of Samurai Creek, a Japanese settlement that was destroyed by evil Caucasians who wanted their gold. But he's also looking for his long-lost sister and her crew of Japanese gunsmiths who were kidnapped because they created superior firearms. Ethnic stereotypes abound, many of them unflattering and outdated.
Although it's only 13 episodes long, Gun Frontier feels repetitious, with too many sandstorms, flash floods, gun battles, train rides, and hangings. And after so many violent conflicts and mishaps, the series simply stops in mid-story. Gun Frontier ranks among Matsumoto's--and Harlock's--lesser adventures, and stretching 13 episodes over four discs with only minimal extras feels chintzy. (Rated 16 and older: violence, violence against women, nudity, profanity, sexual situations, ethnic stereotypes, toilet humor, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon
