The series follows Koko Hekmatyar, a young arms dealer who sells weapons under HCLI, a weapons corporation. As one of the company\'s unofficial weapon sellers, she secretly sells weapons in many countries while avoiding the local authorities and law enforcements as most of her work is actually illegal under international law. Travelling with her is her team of bodyguards who are mostly composed of ex-military veterans. Her latest addition to her crew is Jonah, a seemingly emotionless child soldier who is skilled in combat yet ironically hates arms dealers. Jonah joins Koko as he wishes to find the arms dealer responsible for his family\'s death. What follows is Koko and her crews escapades around the world.


I started with the manga of this but I never came around to actually start reading. After this first episode I might. I immediately got Black Lagoon vibes during the OP and those stayed the whole episode, which is a good thing in my book. No forced introductions of characters, you\'ll get  them along the way. Productionwise the series looks splendid and for once the animated city actually does resemble an European city. I don\'t really like the VA for Koko though, she sounds too girly to me.
Second season already confirmed for this fall I believe

Probably this season\'s best. I can\'t get enough of the boy with dead eyes. I wish he was a girl... but then it\'d be like Gunslinger Girl.

I am grateful that it is a boy actually. Fits better.
But what is with the title? Kinda reminds me of the Norse mythological snake? Which the intro gave away anyway...

But I don\'t see the connection! T_T

Everyone loves a Slinkey! <3
I love Waffles! <3

I hate the title. It\'s even harder to remember than the full title of oreimo.
