If you are familiar with the Burn Up series then you
should already know that this anime is just pure entertainment.
In my personal preference, that is a very good thing. If you
enjoy such anime as Agent Aika or Golden Boy,
you'll enjoy this stuff, which is lightly less perverted,
Like the last two titles I mentioned, the plot, while it
isn't in the realm of Gundam or anything, holds up
quite well. The show mainly focuses on a gold digging, blond
haired chick named Rio. Along with Rio, three other cliched
cute girls accompany her. You know there's the nerd type computer
girl, the gadget making girl, and the girl who wants to kick
ass while blowing $%#& up (my personal fave). And what exactly
do these girls want? Their paycheck of course! Well, this
anime reminds me a little of Cowboy
Bebop in the sense that the main character(s) never succeed
in their far-fetched schemes to get what they want, and usually
end up in the worst case scenario. While it is entertaining
enough, it might not be worth your 30 bucks.
While it does sound all good and great some people will be
turned off by the overall plot which consists of Rio trying
to get the man of her dreams and a whole lot of money. But,
anybody who likes the Action/Comedy anime genre will get a
good kick out of this one. Also, with most anime programs
(sorry, but it's true) the dubbing is never anything special.
So you are better off turning on the subtitles and the Japanese
language track for this one. The DVD is also accompanied without
any noteworthy extras. All you get is a few trailers and that's
If you're looking for a deep, riveting tale, you're better
off spending that cash on that next volume of the Akira
manga instead of this. If your looking for a funny action
romp, than this is only worth a rental.
