Deep in the deserts of southwestern United States lies "Neo Purgatory." Formerly a nuclear waste disposal site, the facility has been turned into a prison for hardened criminals; that is, until the prisoners weaponize the nuclear waste and riot, turning Neo Purgatory into an international disaster.

Maki Aoba, Doris Nicholas, Marilyn Moreau, and Naomi Jones make up the "Guard of Rose," an all-female special police task force. Along with stowaway Katherine Hook and multi-purpose robot Link, the Guard of Rose is on patrol investigating rumors of an "angel" near Neo Purgatory when their helicopter is shot down. As the crisis within the prison rapidly devolves, the Guard of Rose members might be the only ones who can stop the prisoners before they unleash nuclear armageddon.

I feel morally obligated to warn the entire anime community about the flaming turd biscuit known as 6 Angels. Over the years I have seen some god awful anime; Mars of Destruction and Bronze come immediately to mind but I don’t think anything could really be worse than this series. It in all seriousness, probably deserves 1's across the board but a great deal of my completely unenjoyable experience with 6 Angels comes from the terrible subbing job. Because of that I can’t entirely hold its nonsensical story against it since the subs are not the original creators fault.

As I mentioned, the ...

Mixed Feelings
6 Angels had a lot of potential to be great but in the end turned out to be pretty mediocre and forgettable. The story was decent and the characters were pretty good but I felt they didn't truly live up to what they could have been. The main characters were all pretty enjoyable but since this was short you didn't get to see much of them.

The art was also not too bad as the main female characters looked good but the other characters tended to look ugly. The animation included some CG which looked pretty good alongside the animation. There is also some fanservice in ...

Show is awkwardly on the "so bad it's good" threshold. MCs are likeable with nice comedic moments. But overall it wasn't bad enough in a way to make the serious story unintentionally funny. I'm also left with an uncertainty whether I enjoyed it or not.
Main themes include human nature, pollution/environmental awareness, & feminism (only slightly about Guard of Rose). The story/message are simple, happy end, but presented in a convoluted, multi-party/betrayal/reconcilation way. Best watch it as a 90 minute film, to connect pieces from the rough & messy editing/directing. [MINOR SPOILER] For example, the MC team's crash land is interrupted by a long multi-scene flashback. ...
