Bolt Crank is a mercenary, but he's no ordinary
man. He's gifted with the ability to eat metal objects. Later,
he can produce these items from his right hand, as the need
arises. Bolt is the strong silent type-he doesn't say much and
prefers to let his actions speak for themselves. And in the
course of this series, Bolt will serve as protector to many
people. He will hunt down a murderer who is brutally killing
scientists, protect an entire country, and destroy a demon.
And that's just the first disc! All 12 episodes - the entire
series - on one low-priced 2 disc set!

to eat metal objects and reproduce it via his right hand (ex:
a gun). It sounds kind of hokey but actually it's an enjoyable
There is no story-arc,
each episode is a different adventure in the life of Bolt Crank
but all in all the DVD is worth the purchase for the low cost.
