Synopsis

In Japan's not-too-distant future, crime has become so common that the government has legalised firearms for citizens to use in self-defence. To combat this new wave of wrongdoing, the Recently Armed Police of Tokyo was established in hopes of hunting down criminals with lethal force.

Kyohei Tachibana is a gifted culinary student who dreams of saving up enough money to become a pastry chef in France. When four young mercenaries ask him to be their cook, he's forced into making a tough choice. As Jo, Meg, Sei, and Amy take on the bloodiest jobs in the chaotic city of Tokyo, Kyohei accepts an imminent descent into the world of crime—and he'll do a lot more than just cooking!

Burst Angel is another clear example of a good anime being ruined by wanton fanservice and by being too long for its own good.

The story could have been summed up in 13 episodes, but it dragged on with so many pointless side stories and filler episodes that it took away drastically from its momentum.

The story is kinda weak, but interesting. They definitely took time out to create this intriguing future Japan. The art was great, but there was too much fanservice, but not as much as compared to other anime. Could you believe it when I say it was actually 'tasteful'? Like, sure, their read more

Watching this was almost like getting on a roller coaster. It had a lot of high points, but there were also a lot of low points. Glad to say that there were more highs than lows.

Here's an example of the roller coaster I'm talking about. Every 2-3 episodes, there's a different storyline. Some were good, like the one when Meg and Jo went to this all girls school. Some I couldn't understand, like that time warp episode. In fact, most of the time I couldn't understand because of the many independent storylines.

I like most of the characters - Jo was cool. She was tough and read more

Story:
Kyohei was looking for a job, and he found one as a cook for a family made up of Jo, Meg, Amy and Sei. Little did he know that this so-called "family" is actually a gruop of mercenaries and he gets taken along for the ride.
Believe me it ain't as interesting as it sounds BUT it ain't bad. I mean it's a good thing to have a main plot, but the series has more stand alone or filler episodes than the main story. Which is kind of a let down.

Art:
Studio Gonzo is known for their unique art style and character designs. The read more

Burst Angel Review
by Voss Ausviss
(To be posted on my own website eventually)

Burst angel, from the box cover, looked promising. It had artistic merit (meaning caught a warm blooded post American males attention), technology and some violence to boot. ‘What could go wrong’ I thought to myself as I was scrounging about the HMV’s in the midst of its close out sale. Oh how wrong I was.
Synopsis: A bunch of teenage female bounty hunters and their one male cook live in a world where everyone is allowed to own a gun. As such there is a huge spike in crime. There are a group of robots read more
