is gave up his past and is the pirate known as Rock. Doing whatever gets them paid, they do jobs

mercenaries, mafia, and gun runners, life is dangerous, but then so are they. Ever in danger they rely on their wits, guns
and each other.
an action packed Animé, filled with explosions and constant adventure. The main characters aren't really 'good' or
'bad'. As Rock learns the trade of being
a pirate, life isn't all as straight and narrow as it cuts to be. And there are far worst things than pirates,
them not getting paid!
This is a really great Animé, while the characters aren't necessary
always the 'good guys', you still want to root for them being the
underdog. Life isn't fair, so why should
they be? As Rock learns the ropes of being a pirate *and not to get shot*, he
learns the morality of a pirate. And if
the enemy doesn't kill him first, his shipmates will.
