Synopsis

To the unsuspecting eye Maki, Reimi and Yuka may not look like ace crime fighters, which might explain why they're stuck on traffic patrol instead of more "exciting" police duties.

All that changes when Yuka gets herself kidnapped by a white slave organization run by a politically connected businessman who's got the rest of the police cowed.

Now it's up to Maki and Reimi to don skin-tight battle armor, liberate a tank, and make sure that a certain slaver learns that when you play with fire, you're going to get your ass burned!

There is NO excuse in my eyes to write about the sequels, but not the very 1st ova-movie of the franchise?? Damn right it is! One of the reasons I like old school anime is because stuff like this still had entertainment when the credits roll, in a small corner you saw production sketches, extra deleted scenes, further development of the series and unfinished drawings with nice popmusic to listen to, I miss that. This is the 1st installment of the Burn Up serie's started in 1991, so that means EVERYTHING was handdrawn, probably not everyone's taste these days since some animation, especially the girls ...

Story: Mostly conforms to your typical, over the top 80s police thriller flick. Buddy cops going rogue to take on the bad dudes with some serious artillery. However, while most 80s villains deal with drugs, these ones happen to traffic female slaves. A serious and rather dark issue for an other wise extremely light hearted OVA. Indeed, this story aspect and all its implications is never seriously touched upon by the OVA. There is overall nothing wrong with the very standard plot apart from the ending which seems rushed and abrupt.
Also keep an lookout for 80s pop culture references that do not add anything to ...

Hey, let's get into the Burn Up! OVA, the one that exploded into a multi-TV series/OVA-spanning franchise. The original OVA is like a gust of smog, that turns a shroud of clouds grey, before the cleansing rain comes to wash away the pollution! It's a concept that was alright-looking, but never really got far, in its original form!

⚠️ This review will be spoiler-free ⚠️

—Story/Characters

The main heroines can be summed up with the "Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt" archetypes: Maki ("the audacious, loud-mouthed blonde-bimbo stereotype") and Reimi ("the soft-spoken, raven-haired beauty—in other words, the less impulsive and more rational of the two"). I use Panty and ...
