Aaron H. Bynum · From fps #9 · October 27, 2006 | Van used to be a regular guy, content to marry the woman he loved and stay out of the way of worldly adventures and regional gangs. But as can happen in anime, due to irreversible circumstances—including a run-in with a man with a dangerous mechanical hand—Van later finds himself with nothing but a few chosen weapons with which to exact his revenge. Now searching for the killer responsible for the death of his wife Elena, this laid-back, tuxedo-wearing wanderer journeys from town to town jaded and alone.

Gun Sword follows Van the vagrant as he sleeps under the stars. While rightfully angered that life as he knew it was shattered on his wedding day by a wrathful murderer, Van is an altogether calm and private individual. He stays out of other people's problems and believes that personal struggle can only be overcome by private expectations. It isn't until Van passes through the village of Evergreen that his journey gets interesting.
