Keep Waiting more

on 12/12/2012

If you've already committed yourself to this series, I would strongly recommend that you keep up with it. Though this volume is a bit slower than the others, it still has a lot to be seen, and I'd hate for anyone to actually miss out on something that I perhaps missed. Plus, the lack of revelations in this volume promises much more revelations in the next, so don't miss out on the episodes in between.

Burst Angel

on 9/13/2013

One thing about Burst Angel is that it has a downward flow of story progress. It started out great by presenting strong scenes of action and quickly introducing the cast of characters. In volume two, it slowed a bit but allowed itself to deepen your knowledge of all the main protagonists in the series. And in volume three, it does almost the same thing. I didn't expect that in this volume. I wanted the main conflict to finally present itself in one of the episodes, a kind of hint to the end of the series, but that never happens. And if it did, the hint either wasn't blatant or the end of the series will be a disappointment. Besides that, I still can't give Burst Angel a bad rating. It's a solid series with top-notch animation. In episodes nine and ten, the series finally moves to single episodes (in previous volumes, all the episodes are two parters). These episodes are based around the story of one of the four women on the team. The first is based on Sei, the second on Amy. Neither of these episode really progress the main plot. In episodes eleven and twelve, the characters enter into a conflict between Osaka's righteous police force and terrorists. A new character is revealed in these episodes in the name Takane, a biker-chick who wields a serrated samurai sword. Whether or not she's a permanent addition cannot be told, as the sub-plot presented in episodes eleven and twelve doesn't end until volume four of the Burst Angel series. These episodes also seem to follow the trend of Americanized Japanese animation by giving characters from Osaka a southern accent,

Will the city of Osaka crumble under the iron fist of RAPT?

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.
