That being said there's some needlessly disturbing parts. The fights are surprisingly clean, less gorey than most R rated movies. But one character was a 14 year old prostitute and while 18 now can still pass for a grade schooler. So be ready for some really odd attitudes about age and sex in this book.
Other than that though, it's a lot of fun and you get a ton of story for your money.
There is also a sequel "Gunsmith Cats Burst" consisting of five regular size volumes.
In fact, I'll just get to the point:
There is one scene in where two young girls have a conversation in the shower. It's actually a fairly innocent scene in itself, but it's so randomly thrown in that there's really no need for it.
The part that really had me disturbed was the intro image for charpter 51, in where Rally(The book's protagonist.) is pictured as a child, naked, holding a rifle that's acting as the only thing covering her. This image has nothing to do with anything going on in the story and is so randomly unnecessary that it really took me out of the book. There's just no reason for it to be there.
It's a shame too, because these things aside, it is actually a fairly good manga. But these images have seriously left me uninterested in continuing this series.
In retrospect Gunsmith Cats have had quite a few sketchy -eyebrow rising- moments in previous books, and I by no means am oppose to mature content in comics, but I think this one has come too close to crossing the line for me in where the darker elements of it's subject matter are starting to feel completely superfluous, at best. I'm done.
