Riding Bean and Bean Bandit may have been cut short as a series, but make no mistake about what it brought to the table. I can definitely see why a lot of elements in Bean Bandit were used in Gunsmith Cats. There’s a lot of potential for a great series here and it certainly would be far from dull.
However, certain aspects like Bean Bandit literally being a tank and some really misguided use of mature content wane this experience from being legendary. Nonetheless, it shouldn’t be discredit for what it is. A solid, action-packed 80s thrill ride. Riding Bean set out to achieve something, and in my book it certainly did just that.
