    childhood show and one of my top ten
    I watched this show as a kid and still makes my top ten to this day. While the anime is a bit older its art style and action packed scenes still keep up with modern anime. If you want to see what was considered great anime for its time then this is a must watch.

    Grils with gun fighting glowing brain psycho monsters
    Dystopian future, western, gun-fu, mecha, glowing brain freaks. And most of all strong and gorgeous females. What is there more to ask?

    In the first episode, Kyohei, an hapless cooking student meets the gunslinger beauties:

    Jo: the unflinching hero
    Meg: Jo partner and perpetual damsel in distress
    Ami: computer hacker prodigy
    Sei: leading the group as part of the Bai Lan ...

  • Burst Angel; Style and Substance
    Burst Angel is an earnest love letter to the bounty hunter westerns of old, mixed with giant robot fights and the dystopian future where everyone has a gun (or ten). Four female mercenaries (and their tagalong cook who fades out of focus later on) take on the various crazies, mutants, giant robots, and mutant giant robots in a Tokyo wreathed in gunsmoke. If you want some crazy action with ...

  • In a word: senseless
    I watched the first seven episodes and still can't get a fix on the point of the stupid show. I can only gather that they're mercenaries working for "Bailan" but other than that I can't tell what's going on or what the point of the show is. If this is based on a manga then I think there were several essential details left out. Random action with cute girls in skimpy outfits shouldn't suffice for a ...

    A more classic anime without the filler cheese!
    For being released in 2004, the creators opted for a wide-screen format, as wide-screen was still in its infancy. The animation style is quite clean and well done for its time, but still has that nostalgic low-definition appeal, while beautifully incorporating early CGI technology seamlessly.

    Character development is quite lacking with certain characters, while the direction that is expected ...

    Quintessential Gun Bunny Anime
    When you think of anime titles that feature Action heroes with big guns, Burst Angel is definately one of them, Like a female A-Team. I've seen a review calling it Ecci, it's not. Fanservice in anime at the time was so prevalent, you would have been hard pressed to find something that didn't have it. Definately a product of it's time, but without a doubt a great watch.

    Girl With Gun Anime.
    This is a Sci-Fi thriller with Jo our gun welding heroine who has to keep getting her bff Meg outta trouble and deal with the bad guys and with her other companions she's pretty tough even on her employer and the new guy that they hired. I didn't like Jo's attitude much or the way she treats others which is why the 4 star rating here it has a lot of teaser fan service you can call it a classic I'd ...

    A classic ecchi series.
    Has it moments. Suffers from excessive fan service that gets in way of the plot.

    The episode that sticks out in my mind is the one where they use a southern accent in the dub for the residents of a distant region.

    Plenty of fights, minimal wear and over the top dramatics for the casual watcher.
