Let Down

on 12/12/2012

I kind of knew that this was eventually going to happen with the Burst Angel series. It was almost inevitable, what with how it started. The pacing of the first two DVDs was so fast that there was nowhere else for it to go but down. I just didn't expect Burst Angel to sink to the depths it did in this volume, more particularly in the third episode

Burst Angel

I kind of knew that this was eventually going to happen with the Burst Angel series. It was almost inevitable, what with how it started. The pacing of the first two DVDs was so fast that there was nowhere else for it to go but down. I just didn't expect Burst Angel to sink to the depths it did in this volume, more particularly in the third episode. I'll start, however, with the three good episodes on the volume. The first, the continuation of the final episode of the third disc, finishes up the Osaka story nicely and with no loose ends. From there, it moves onto an episode based in the past, when Meg first meets Jo on the streets of New York. This is perhaps the only episode where the fan-service isn't so blatantly obvious. Skipping the third episode, the fourth episode expands a little bit on Jo's past through quick flashbacks of images, while she must hunt down a Cybot taking residence in a forest where a samurai resides. When you put these three episodes together, it expands a great deal of the history of Burst Angel while moving the story along nicely. And then, there was episode three, a beach episode.

ReviewSource Toon Zone
Review Burst Angel is yet another in a long line of girls with guns anime series trying to recapture the magic of 80s classic Dirty Pair. And it does an admirable job, adding giant robots and monsters to the familiar mix. Though frankly, I hardly noticed them as my eyes must have been somewhere else...Fast-paced John Woo-style lead slinging is the order of the day, but there's also a healthy amount of goofy comedy, a tiny amount of severely overstretched spandex, and even a hint of drama. It's never very deep, but usually a lot of fun...Although set at least several decades in the future, Burst Angel offers a very realistic portrayal of many aspects of today's Japan...Burst Angel's cel animation is attractive and smooth. The attention to background detail is fantastic, and there's a lot of neat mechanical design...The opening theme is a cheesy Japanese rap number, but most of the score is very catchy, ranging from rock to Sergio Leone western material...If you're a Dirty Pair fan you can't help but be won over by Burst Angel.
