Burst Angel Anime Series
Burst Angel is one of the best anime series I have ever seen. Also know as Bakuretsu Tenshi is a thrilling tale of four girls whos paths become intertwined. Along with one boy who is a great cook the four help secure the city with an under cover but long traditional organization. The organization is what funds everything the girls use in this show. There is a bunch of shooting, sword fights, and fist fights throughout this show. Prepare yourself to see everything from large grenades to large cyber robots for fighting on an immense scale. The story line is both touching and heartbreaking and offers a few twists. Burst Angel differently keeps you coming back episode after episode. Its another anime that ends too soon with you wishing it kept going on. The anime consists of the genres of cyberpunk, mecha, limited yuri(pg 13), action, comedy, and a lot of science fiction type activities. Produced by Gonzo and FUNimation the series has only 1 24 episode series (again you will wish it keeps going!!!). Lets see the opening plot and the characters!
Burst Angel Plot
The story has a relatively popular opening. Someone is where they should be and something out of the ordinary happens and that person then gets a lead to find out more - well thats what happens. Sometime in the future there is a massive amount of crime going on in Japan and because of this citizens can now possess firearms to stay safe. Also due to this the Police of Tokyo are also allowed to exterminate criminals rather then arresting them and locking them up for a trial (this is a key thing in a few of the episodes). Anyway, Kyohei Tachibana is a promising student in a culinary arts school who one day wants to become a pastry chef. Our unlucky chef was on his motorcycle coming home from an errand when he gets caught up in a shoot-out between some silver-haired girl and some psycho killer. The boy, with his dreams goes home and goes on saying how he wants to have enough money to go to France to become a really top notch pastry chef. This gives his teach an idea who gets a flyer asking for a chef to cook for a private group of people. This ends up being from Sei one of the four girls. The girls live in a large trailer and that is where his services will be needed. These girls whos ages are from 11 to 19 are actually pseudo-mercenary agents for a large international group known as Bailan - a large shock to the boy (who finds out later, Jo the silver-haired girl is easily identified by the audience.) From then on it it follows Jo's life most of the time. Each episode there is a threat that needs taking care of that is causing some kind of mayhem in Tokyo.
The Team (aka Main Characters of Burst Angel)
The team that is followed consists of the 4 girls and 2 guys. This is the set of people who work out of the trailer and who investigate these crimes in Japan. Together they have an unstoppable team composition to help aid each other in there roles in the anime.
Burst Angel Jo
Jo is the fighter chick of this anime. She has advanced combat training and can use dual pistols extraordinarily well. She always cares about Meg over anything else. Anything that gets between Jo and Meg is killed or put out with any force necessary by Jo. Jo often risks the lives of everyone good and bad trying to get Meg back. When she is not fighting she enjoys watching horror and gore movies which is kind of odd. She is the one seen at the start with the long silver hair.
Burst Angel Meg
Meg is the redhead with the cowgirl look. She carries a small revolver and sometimes has a large anti-tank rifle to aid Jo as she fights. While Meg means well she is often kidnapped and taken away from the team leaving Jo to go get her back at all costs.
Burst Angel Sei
Sei is the one who is basically in charge of the group. She has the whole organization behind her. This leaves her with a lot of money to carry out missions and investigations while also being able to care for the girls. Being a very powerful Chinese family member leaves her with a lot of responsibilities and things she has to do. Often times these things are counter-intuitive to her missions.
Burst Angel Amy
Amy is the cute little 11 year old. While being super smart she is picked on by the other girls like a sister. Amy is really a super hacker and can do almost anything with computers that comes to mind. She uses her cuteness to get what she wants and to be deceptive at times. Amy is often getting into trouble in many different ways but means well overall.
Burst Angel Leo
Leo is the mechanic who works on both the trailer and Django. Django is the cyberbot that Jo uses when she cant fight something on her own. Leo is almost like a big brother to the girls as hes always bugged by them while working but does care for them. He tends to be more serious at times with the main team but with Amy he can be somewhat childish (he believes she could be smarter then him at certain things.) He also has some other points in the series when hes childish and reprimanded by authorities for it.
Burst Angel Kyohei
Kyohei is a student who wants a job to raise money to go to France. While often seen on his motorcycle he plays an important role in the story. Dressed in his chef uniform a lot he thinks these girls are crazy and has right to do so. At some point he realizes he actually likes being with them and doesn't want there time to end the way it does. He basically becomes part of the "team."
