"...a dizzying mix of spaghetti western, comedy, adventure and giant-robot action. NewType USA
Editor's NoteThe genre-bending anime series BURST ANGEL blends sci-fi, action, comedy, and even a touch of spaghetti Western into a thrilling girls-with-guns confection. In a futuristic Tokyo, a new law that allows citizens to openly carry guns has actually led to an increase in crime, and a shadowy organization known as RAPT (Recent Armed Police of Tokyo) actively encourages violence in order to profit from the chaos. Into this anarchic milieu stride a quartet of scantily-clad young women named Jo, Sei, Amy, and Meg, who attempt to bring a sense of order and justice to the lawless land with their gunslinging ways and leather chaps. Violent and sexy, this volume introduces the anime series with the first four episodes.
