If you like gonzo stories about two women who travel around from place to place, always on the wrong side of the law, never enough money, lives full of violence and non-paying jobs helping people out, but gosh, they have each other…then Bakaretsu Tenshi, Angels’ Adolescence is just the ticket.
And that about covers it. :-)
I didn’t review the anime for Bakuretsu Tenshi/Burst Angel, because the yuri was pretty thin. In fact, the anime worked pretty hard to wipe out any love-love between Meg and Jo, going so far as to spend nearly an entire episode dedicated to Meg pining for a guy in a way that was totally unconvincing.
However, the manga seems a little less coy. Not that we get Jo and Meg sucking face or anything, but still, it’s an improvement. In this incarnation, Meg fantasizes several times about getting closer to Jo, driving off in a sports car with her, having an intimate moment for two with her, etc. etc.
All this in between Jo blowing people away with her big-ass gun (TM) and looking cool, of course.
Even the “schlub boy” character isn’t really annoying or offensive and his fanservice quotient is very low, which is a welcome relief to this burnt-out and increasingly cynical fan girl.
Is it a *good* story? Depends on what you like. As sick as I am of loli and moe, I am ready to admit that I cling to this manga like a drowning woman to a life preserver. LOL
Art – 8
Character – 7
Story – 6
Yuri – 6
Overall – 7, but here’s hoping for an increase in story and Yuri ratings.
Girls x Guns x Gonzo = Sounds good to me. ^_^
