Three {{OVA}} episodes were made, which is not nearly enough to get into the extended story that runs through the original manga (and its sequel series, ''Burst''). Instead, it settles for being a short, episodic, high-energy action-adventure story with a lot of fast cars, loud explosions and vigorous gunplay. Created by KenichiSonoda, the famed character designer for ''Anime/BubblegumCrisis'', ''Gunsmith Cats'' is descended from an [=OVA=] called ''Anime/RidingBean''. ''Riding Bean'' featured Rally as the partner of Bean Bandit, a professional wheelman with a soft spot for kids. Bean would later appear in ''Gunsmith Cats'' first as an adversary, then later as an ally and friend of Rally's.

** Radinov tending to her wounds in her safe house bathroom is similar to the self surgery scene from Film/TheTerminator, right down her wearing the same outfit, having a bandage on the right hand, and the soundtrack sounding eerily similar to that of the movie

* CaughtWithYourPantsDown: Minnie May is masturbating to a photo of her missing boyfriend when Becky walks in on her. A far less amusing case is when Goldie jumps Rally in a bathroom. [[spoiler:Luckily, it's just to remove the remnants of her {{Brainwashing}} - though she also [[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown boasts]] that she's keeping Misty before doing so. May finds her in time for Rally to run upstairs with a sniper rifle and put a bullet through Goldie's hand from several blocks away before Goldie can yank Misty onto a boat and out of the country.]]

* SkinshipGrope: Vol. 1 features an opening scene where Minnie-May gropes Rally after her regular target practice while commenting on how stiff her nipples were. Rally returns the favor after Minne-May lets one of her custom-made grenades fly and take out Bonnie's car. She even comments on how they feel like "tiny pebbles".

* UsefulNotes/{{Chicago}}: The series' main setting.



* DownerEnding / BittersweetEnding: At the end of Burst, [[spoiler: Goldie is in charge of the mafia, Misty is still brainwashed and in love with Goldie, May and Ken are no longer working at the gun shop, and Rally gives up bounty hunting due to injuries hampering her shooting abilities.]]

* [[GenderBlenderName Gender Blender Nickname]]: Irene "Rally" Vincent. Rally says she picked the name so nobody would know they were hiring a female bounty hunter. She might want to return to Irene now that she's an established hunter, but people ''respect'' Rally Vincent, and she doesn't want to lose the reputation. WordOfGod is that her pseudonym was supposed to be [[SpellMyNameWithAnS "Larry"]] - not merely androgynous but outright masculine. "Rally" came from the difficulty in translating "L" and "R" sounds from Japanese.

Rally points this out and Bean offers her a bet with [[spoiler: the reward being an oath that he'll never deliver drugs again]] just because this 'seems to piss her off so much'.

She proceeds to live up to her reputation by [[spoiler: storming through a police safehouse and [[KillEmAll mowing down a dozen or so officers and federal agents]], in order to kill Washington]].
