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!

This is a pretty average anime, but it has soul and that's all that matters. You already know what you're getting into with any cop anime set in America, especially if they came out between the 80s and 90s.That was the height of buddy cop schlock and I love it. I highly recommend you watch the dub, with friends if you even have any. The animation is rough but very pleasing to the eyes, the character designs are fun and cute, the setting is grimy and dark but pretty fun to see the characters in. It's just so silly, you gotta go into this one ...

Story
Introduction was nice, a tad confusing but nice. It was confusing to me for i am almost always thinking why? Why am i seeing this? What connection is there to this anime? What is to come. But that isn't what this plot's introduction was about. It was about escape and rest. Knowing that now i can't help but reflect upon how much i appreciated that brief moment. Even if was completely plot-less.

Overall story was simple. Given the nature of the crime i am glad it was kept at a somewhat pg-13 level. I say somewhat for word choices could greatly be improved ...

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 ...
