Review: Burst Angel


Plot Summary: In a crime-ridden future Japan, Kyohei Tachibana is a peaceful student at a culinary school, dreaming of going to France for advanced study as a patissier (pastry chef). To afford the trip, he accepts a part-time job as private cook to a strange group of women – Sei, Meg, Jo and Amy. To Kyohei’s astonishment, they turn out to be a band of violent mercenaries, and he finds himself in the line of fire.

This is one interesting anime, since you follow different characters from the beginning of the anime. Its a science fiction type anime with some comedy, and mecha in the mix. At first your following Kyohei for the beginning of the series, and seems comedy oriented, but there is a deeper plot in the background. Something that you dont get see for a while. Your following this band of mercenaries expecting Kyohei to be some sort of savior or deeply involved in it. But after developing a lot of the characters and their relationships in the series it takes a strange drop because of plot line taking a strange twist (very Akira like), but its still a good anime. They could have done a little bit more work to smooth out the changes, but overall good. Its more like a real life story in that its not always a happy ending.
