BURN UP W! puts you in the shoes of Tokyo's special law enforcement team, TEAM WARRIOR.
This four episode OVA is hard to review since the first two eps are completely different the the second two but here goes.
first off, the art is pretty typical anime style, but they did a good job with it. The characters arn't plain at all, and the colors and overall artwork a really good.
These first two episodes are solely for introducing the characters and getting to know them. They are definately comedies with minimal amounts of action, but within all this, there is a plot building in the background which will come into play later.
There is no character development or any intricate interactions, relational or otherwise, these episodes or more or less just some fan service and entertainment.
This is where the anime turns into something cool. These episodes build upon the plot that was revealed in the first couple, and which will come about later in the full series. These two episodes are packed with action and fighting and death.
The series takes on a serious and dark tone and makes it all the better. Still no character development but who cares, this show IS about babes with guns. This show probably doesn't actually deserve a 9 rating but i though those last two episodes were pretty bad ass.
Girls and guns, fun to watch but dont expect a masterpiece.
and as a note, i definitely recommend the sub since the dub is pretty crappy. read more
