Editorial Reviews

In a crime ridden future, the streets of Tokyo are patrolled by RAPT, the organization responsible for maintaining peace and order. In this bleak world the citizenry are legally allowed to carry and wield firearms. But so are the criminals. It is RAPT s purpose to dispense quick justice on those that would violate or abuse the law. But buried deep underground in secret labs, monsters of unimaginable terror are being forged using a new science, having their organic cells fused with machine parts creating the perfect enforcers to ensure a future devoid of free will.

In response to the rising threat, four brave angels assume the responsibility to defend the defenseless and bring down the underground crime syndicates, as well as the corrupt leaders of RAPT. They are enigmas, but Jo, Sei, Amy, and Meg, are the best chance a wounded city has of freeing itself from an even darker future.

The Viridian Collection Boxset contains all 24 episodes, plus the OVA - Infinity

Customer Reviews

This anime was really good in alot of ways.
James E. Lindsey
Perhaps if I had known this going into the program, I would have been less distracted by the frivolous characters and jutting story threads that go nowhere throughout.
ONENEO
That isn't a bad thing, but if you're looking for a lesbian love fest you aren't going to get it, and that's something that makes this a classy fanservice series.

Ok if you like BIG mechs, big gun, big boobs and a lil hint at lesbian action Burst Angel is for you....You meet Jo, a genetically enhanced gunslinger who fights to protect her lover meg from harm. Meg on the other hand has this uncanny knack of getting kidnapped by the bad guys causeing Jo to kill half the town to find her. its pointless yet has a point.

Is Burst Angel the best anime series that has ever been made? No, most certainly it is not. Is Burst Angel one of the most entertaining series that you can see that features an all female main cast (excluding our little cook)? Yes!

While this is an anime full of fanservice, from skimpy outfits to the ever amusing episode at the water park, Burst Angel is a series that tailors itself to a younger male audience looking for some nice eye candy in with their violence. It doesn't actually make this a bad series, and it doesn't in any way fall flat like so many fanservice anime series (see Najica Blitz Tactics: Complete Collection ). There is a deeper plot and deeper characters in this series, but you do have to watch carefully to catch that. The relationships between our heroines is at time strained but always close and caring, even when the latter aspect is masked by a sense of duty or revenge.

Set in the future, where we have a pleasant mix of the old and new (think advanced mecha and a still early 21st century society) we find three young women and one little girl all drawn together by circumstance to do the jobs they are assigned to do. Whether or not Jo, Meg, Sei and Amy agree with the tasks they are handed is ultimately inconsequential and the price of either finishing the job or saving the ever unlucky Meg is often a problem for Jo and the rest. The plot centers around RAPT - a corrupt amalgam of a police force and private security contractor - the company that Sei's father is a part of in a big way, and the stories of the girls and what brought them together.

Let me start this review by expressing my absolute adulation for Funimation's Viridian Collections. I was first introduced to these extraordinary anime packs through Blue Gender and made it my priority to attempt to locate as many others as possible. For those who don't know, Viridian Collections, in Funimation's own words are the essential titles for any well-rounded DVD collection exploring the pop culture phenomenon known as Japanese animation. To you and I it means a box set containing an entire series, an OVA, and a lot of extras all for the price usually associated with a single season of a given show.

The extras contained within this Viridian Collection could easily fill up my entire critique so I'll mention a few of the key areas of interest briefly. The set contains a whopping 6 episode commentary tracks with many of the English vocal talents and production, all of the original radio dramas, a Japanese cast interview, CGI artist interview, character designer interview, trailers, alternate opening and closing themes, battle records, textless songs, outtakes, and a Funimation trailer section on each and every disc. If all that weren't enough, each disc contains a full episode of the bizarre but strangely addictive Funimation property Mr. Stain on Junk Alley. For those of you who have no idea what this is (and that included me before this set), imagine a fully CG rendered show that would fit in pretty well with what we Americans might expect from Pixar, in which a presumably homeless (and shoeless) man, his sweater-wearing cat, and iguana on a leash spend each episode digging through the discarded junk in an alleyway for survival and ensuing high jinks. Sound strange? Oh it is.

This anime was really good in alot of ways. With this boxset you also get the OVA which is really good since it explains more about the two female main characters and their past. I don't know what it is, but this series has a slight feel of Heavy Metal mixed with like Full Metal Panic!. I don't really know how to explain it without giving any spoilers away.

It's actually not as violent as you might expect and the characters really depend on eachother. Jo the main herione while cold to some still has a tight nit bond with Meg. They have been together since the begining. Unfortunatly I don't want to go into too much detail, but I do recommend the series. I am sure one of the other reviewers might have explained it better, but I am trying to stay away from possible spoilers.
