Bakuretsu Tenshi/Burst Angel

This is one of those animes that are starting to become fairly mainstream where the most kick ass characters are women. In the case of this anime, they are assassins/bounty hunters. The most baddass of them all if Joe. She's the backbone of the whole gang. They live in this huge trailer that is most likely bullet proof. Onto the episode.

The first episode begins by introducing the main male, who's name I forgot. He is taking a shortcut through an alley to get out of traffic. At the same time, we see a fight going on. It switches back and fourth. Turns out, our lead man took the wrong alley and ended up in the middle of this fight. He sees the girl that's fighting fairly clearly, but he is getting shot at and his bike gets shot literally to pieces. Moving on to later. He's telling a friend about this while he looks for a job. A teacher of his comes up to him and offers him a flier asking for a personal chef. He's in school to become a pastry chef (go fig) so he looks into the job. He ends up meeting the ladies of the bounty hunter squad since, lo and coincidence, he will be their chef. He doesn't know at the time what they do. So they approve of him as their chef, and he leaves until the next day. It doesn't take long before he's kidnapped. Great luck kid. Around the same time, the girls get a job. They have to break up an exchange. So they go to do that, and it turns out these are the guys that took their friend, battle ensues and doesn't end when the episode does, forcing you to watch more to know the ending.

I just love the art. It's awesome. Very clear, and very pretty. The music's pretty kick ass too. I like it.

Overall- I'm fairly sure that I like the show, but not entirely. It's definitely up my alley and I recommend everyone to at least check it out.

Yes, it's a great anime, I have the box set, will get the new OVA soon. Right now I'm looking for an "Art book" or a "Fan Book" no luck yet, hope I don't have to import from Japan.
