Product Description

A new law s been passed in Tokyo. Ordinary folks are now allowed to freely carry firearms; shoot they re even legally allowed to use em. You might think that crime would increase and you d be right. But the arrest rate s gone down. After all the only prison a dead man needs is a hole in the ground. All thanks to RAPT.The Recent Armed Police of Tokyo is stealing away jurisdiction from the local authorities quicker than a bullet leaves a barrel. What that means is that folks are getting desperate. And desperate people with itchy fingers mean more bodies in the streets.Now I m not sure if she came from up above or somewhere way down below but an angel s just come to Earth. She s an enigma but with her partners Sei Amy and Meg she s the best chance this town s got. Her name s Jo. And there s a new sheriff in town.Episodes:1. Hell Comes Silently2.

The broadcast series Burst Angel (2004) depicts an ultra-violent future, when everyone carries guns, and the Recent Armed Police of Tokyo (RAPT) is restoring order, despite its involvement in unsavory activities that range from murder to biomedical experiments. Wimpy aspiring pastry chef Kyohei has no idea what he's getting into when he takes an after-school job cooking for four gun-toting women mercenaries who work for an unseen boss. Against his will, Kyohei is dragged on violent sorties against thugs, cybots, and RAPT agents. It's a bit like watching Keitaro from Love, Hina join the Knight Sabers from Bubblegum Crisis. Sei, Meg, Amy, and Jo are standard-issue anime warriors who don revealing "fan service" costumes to fight murderous foes. There's lots of blood, lots of explosions, and lots of weightless CG mecha, but little storytelling or characterization. (Rated TV 14: violence, grotesque imagery, profanity, alcohol and drug use) --Charles Solomon

I had my reservations when I first starting watching the series. However, to my surprise this series is just as good as Robotech/Macross. Each character is distinct, actually has a personality and there is more focus on the personalities while the science is put in the background. Which is rare since a lot of other Japanese Anime have characters that always seem to be cardboard cut outs of each other and focus to much on the scientific-war plot, if I wanted to see all that than I would watch the Discovery channel. Burst Angel is NOT like that since, it focuses on the character's and is just fun to watch with it's varying levels of chemistry and character development. They are not hard to look at either with there seductive wardrobe. I loved the packaging of the DVD which includes little books with detailed pictures of the characters. This is a DVD that is well worth the money since, the extras are fun to watch also. The only thing that I would have liked to have seen in the extras is the actors who actually did the American voices since, they were cool to listen to in the commentary. But, nothing is 100% perfect. Burst Angel is pure fun, cool, action packed and has perfect visual quality.

The four episodes are great - the artwork is beautiful, the characters are interesting and the combat is realistic. There are wheels within wheels when it comes to the plot and there are two story arches within the DVD,so you get a lot of story for your buck. The main idea is that crime rules most of the city of Tokyo and a team of four girls are trying to help keep the peace. But they are NOT part of the normal law enforcement units (think A-Team or Bubblegum Crisis). Rapt seems to run the city, but there are hints of other powers fighting for the top of the hill. In fact the girls seem to follow commands from somebody else (all we get is a name - it could be a person or a business).

There are also a ton of extras, such as radio dramas, one commentary track, funny outtakes, textless songs and, of course, trailers. The English Voice Actors are the best. Jo is played By Monical Rial (Gasaraki, Azumanga Daioh), Meg is played by Jamie Marchie (Fruits Basket) and Kyohei Tachibana is played by Greg Ayres (Full Metal Panic, Gunslinger Girl). We also get Sei played by Clarine Harp and Amy played by Alison Retzloff (from having been in Kiddy Grade).

Now, heres the bad new. First, it is ONLY in surround sound, so for guys like me who have only 2.0 stereo, lots of the audio is lost or too soft. Also, there are subtitle problems. The opening song, for example, has the subtitles right over the credits. The radio dramas, but for the first selection, have non subtitles. Also, the textless closing song in the extras, the English version, has subtitles which can't be turned off. All this little issues add up and take a little away from the enjoyment.

Yet hearing Monica Rial play a female gunslinger, with cussing and all, made my day. That is why I only took one point away. Great anime, nice selection of extras, but sloppy work on putting the DVD together.

Burst Angel certainly has potential to become interesting. It starts off with an interesting story: A young man going to school to become a chef gets a job as the cook for a rag tag group of gunslingers who are paid to take on missions. The primary "mercenary" is Jo, a quiet, tough young woman who shoots first and asks questions later. She is joined by Meg, the seemingly useless, typically big breasted cowgirl of the group (minus the accent), Sei and Amy. While it starts out with some pretty nifty stuff, the focus shifts a bit. The cook becomes less interesting, and to me he's the most interesting character. Meg and Jo seem to take on the spotlight, and they are just a bit too cliched for my tastes. On the other hand, the rest of the series is quite good. The setting is interesting and fun to watch. The action is excellent and well animated. So, if your into something that doesn't require too much focus, but is pretty fun, Burst Angel is worth a check. You might be surprised and like it more than me.

I was pleasantly surprised by this anime. I kept away from this title after all the terrible reviews I've read about it. I guess that goes to show you have to actually watch the show to know if you're gonna like it or not. This show's got robots, guns, and hot chicks in skimpy outfits...a mix for some serious fun! I was hooked by the first episode, it has some great mecha & gun action with good looking cgi. The girls? What can I say? This show has some very hot looking ladies! Whether you keep watching after the first few episodes is up to you. But the first volume is definitely worth checking out if you're looking for something exciting to watch.

Too predictable. Animation was barely average. I'm sorry I spent the money on it but it did have at least minimal mindless entertainment to push me through to the end. Wouldn't recommend this to any friends of mine.
