Their clothes. That’s all.
"Take that, costume designer!"
While I welcome the release of the BA OVA, Burst Angel Infinity, my head tells me it’s crap while my dick says it’s great. At the end of the TV series, Jo was supposed to have gone missing if I remember correctly, with Meg donning a cool costume similar to hers and dual pistols too. Meg was supposed to have grown up and gained some fighting ability. ALAS the OVA dashes our hopes and begins with Jo and Meg already back together just with different clothes. Edit: Apparently this episode is a prequel of the TV series and at this point Meg and Jo have yet to meet Sei and Amy. This explains why it doesn’t tie in with the conclusion of the TV series. Read my later post for more details.
Jo now has extremely long hair and a really weird tentage as her jacket. Meg’s outfit improved considerably though, but she totally waltzes around unarmed. I’ve seen the first episode of the 3 part OVA so far and the cute part is, at the end of the episode, Jo gets her hair sliced off and a new jacket so she now looks like her TV series version. Great.
The rest of the episode was totally BA generic, with murderous cyborgs kidnapping Meg and Jo destroying it. Of course there’s some conspiracy involving the top brass of the city.
The whole point of the show is to see Jo in action. This lesbian girl must rank alongside Tatiana and Kaoru as the top 3 GONZO Girls.
Finally got rid of that ugly new hairstyle….
Gate Open!! Gate of GAR!
Ultra Shinpu GIRI!!!
I suppose if GONZO is making a sequel OVA to one of their less successful franchises, does it mean that Gatekeepers 1985 OVA is no longer a far-off dream but a real possibility? I will do a sex wee if the much maligned studio announces plans for it.
Yuri is not really my cup of tea but Jo is GAR.
Enjoy BA for what it is, nothing but a Jo fanservice vehicle full of style and sexiness. And that’s not a bad thing!
