Follows the exploits of Team Warrior, a special anti-terror wing of the Neo-Tokyo Police force. Team Warrior is comprised of the habitually broke Rio, gun-crazy Maya, computer specialist Lillica, tech-expert Nanvel, piliot/voyeur Yuji, and is led by the enigmatic Maki. The team faces a number of missions, ranging from bodyguard duty, breaking up robbery and arms rackets, and providing security for a very powerful tank. Rio and company continually thwart the terrorist aims of Ruby, an operative for a shadowy cabal of powerful men. Before the final showdown, the circumstances behind the formation of Team Warrior, how the precocious Rio came to join it, and Maki's painful past will be revealed.
I personally find this series much better than Burn Up W.
(In comparison to Burn UP W)
the episodes are much more broad in origin; they aren't just restricted to the cops fighting crimes, they are more interactive amongst other characters and people.
It's also funnier. The jokes are much more outrageous and will get you cracking up, although most of them are sex jokes and are centered around Rio being a blonde stereotype. if you don't get offended by this show's crude humor, you will find this show hilarious.
it is an equal blend of comedy, action and also a bit of drama.
it's clever how generally every crime Team Warrior encounter all tie together. they all contribute to unfolding the storyline, (without ruining it for those who haven't watched it) it is all an unraveling from the past one of the members of Team Warrior which makes it quite intriguing, and generally interesting without getting too dark and emotional. so it won't stir you up.
the characters are much more unique. every main character has their own personality and are more refined. although in Burn Up W, Rio, Lilica, Yuji, Maki and Nanvel are practically the same. You get to see more of Nanvel and get to know her character better.
Also, the section chief seems more like a boss in Exess, in 'W' he is also perverted just like Yuji, so it's kind of just repeating his character. He also makes the show funny by calling Rio 'rookie' and making her appear as mischievous and annoying.
also bringing in a wide range of different characters gives the show more broad personalities, involving more cops, suspects, and people they encounter along the way. And all of them are anything but normal. which gives the show more hilarious textures.
Bringing in various regions like the Sahari Desert, Osaka, and also representatives from different countries, gives the show more culture, and it keeps the storyline outside of Neo-Tokyo, so that it isn't so predictable.
Although this show is Generic Japanese Anime, it deserves praise for how well it is put together and the entertainment value, there are also meaningful messages in some episodes that will help you appreciate it.
With an anime like this I didnt have high hopes, which is a good thing because I found this show at my local video store for $7 - $12 and really thats all it's worth. In no way is this a "bad show", but to sum it up, skip it.
Burn up takes place in a futuristic japan with our crew of mostly female cops called project warrior. Project warrior is an anti - terrorist group with hand picked members with different skill sets and very secretive by nature. Thats really the sum up of the story. Until the halfway point. The show goes on a Crime of the week thing and it worked. after that though, thats when I started to lose interest in an already mediocre show.
Nothing interesting. The characters in this show get very little development and become quite.....boring. If they would of had more screen time and development like Rio it may have been more interesting.
Old, thats all I can say. Im not going to be harsh with this one but ill compare it to trigun. It works, but it's nothing amazing.
The music is fine, the dub is bearable for the most part. No real complaints from this end.
The show could of done alot better. After episode 7 it takes a 180 and tries to be serious with a rather interesting story. But because of the hole it dug itself into, I could not take it serious...AT ALL. Had it been serious from the start, lost the fan service, and more character development, it would of worked. But it's senseless humor (WHICH WAS GOOD BTW), lack of character, un-originality, and excessive fanservice...yeah theirs no redemption.
This series has a little common with its predecessors. The cast is the same of Burn Up W, but Excess lacks of the action that this one has. Instead of this, in Burn Up Excess the main subject is the humor. This isn't an action anime, like any person could think before watching it, it is full of weird characters, weird jokes, extremely ridiculous situations, fan service, and a bit of action and fights. I recommend it only for fans of the Burn Up W characters, and it must be watched just for fun. Don't expect so much more.
Now I move onto the i'll fated "Burn up Excess" t.v. series. A tidy little effort THAT never knew the phrase. "Quit while you still have a marginal audience." But no. They did not quit. They kept right on cranking out big boobed babes with badges. Episode after brain boinking episode, and many of us out there still love them for it. So getting down to the subject matter, in #2 the team of warrior girls delves deeper into what makes them tick. From the origins of Rio's recruitment. To the reason why the green haired boss lady has that lone wolf look in her eye. It's all here in one form or another. I gave this one 6 because even though it is third rate anime, it is STILL better than any other manga of it's genre for that same era. Anything worthwhile requires patience. The better episodes are waiting for you around the bend. Hang in there trooper!read more
