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!

I\'ve started to watch this anime with great expectations - from AMVs and recommendation from my friends. But afterall it was a bad choice...

The story goes well - every episode has his own plotline, but the major plot is hard to define. That\'s a point down... Once in a while the mini-plotlines where good enough, but overall they were decent.

The Art is almost great - the 3d mechas are well designed and its enjoyable to watch them next to the \'anime\'. But that\'s the only good thing - poor design for the rest. A bad taste for \'ecchi\' clothings too -> in ...

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

Burst angel, from the box cover, looked promising.

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 ...
