In a future world dominated by corporations, Iria is one of the best in the bounty-hunting business. Her latest challenge is the lifeform codenamed Zeiram, an invincible killing machine built to be the ultimate weapon -- but this time, cash is not the only motivation. Iria must uncover the secret behind Zeiram and stop it at all costs in this action-packed OVA series.
Like Burst Angel, Iria Zeiram takes place in a sci-fi setting and stars a female who knows how to kick ass. And you can expect to see Iria shoot, punch and slice her way through all sorts of baddies and monsters, along with the ultimate bad-guyof the story, the seemingly indistructable 'Zeiram'.
Iria Zeiram does distinguish itself from BA in a number of ways, and most of these for the better. The majority of the 6-episodes long OVA revolves around Iria and her battle against Zeiram and the destruction he causes. Unlike Burst Angel which is mostly episodic. And there is a tiny bit of character developement for Iria and the way she feels about her brother and a young child she meets along the say. Nothing amazing, but it's at least better than the total lack of developement in BA.
So if you liked Burst Angel for its mix of sci-fi, explosions and kickass girls. Check out Iria Zeriam.
Twelve years ago, an incident known as "Blast Fall" unleashed major destruction and chaos. Now, years have passed, and mankind has learned to adapt by incorporating cybernetic limbs into its citizens. Roy Revent is a bounty hunter known for his violent acts towards criminals due to the loss of his daughter in Blast Fall; and when a criminal tries to take revenge on Roy, an unknown girl falls from the sky and saves him. She has no memory of who she is, or where she came from. With the help of Miranda, his boss and landlord, he takes in the girl and gives her a name of Solty. What is the real identity of Solty, and what caused Blast Fall?
For me, Gonzo releases fall into two categories. I either love them, or find them mildly interesting. Bakuretsu Tenshi and Solty Rei both fall into the latter category. There isn't anything "wrong" with them, just that they're not to my taste as much as say Red Garden or Speed Grapher.
I think people who enjoy one will enjoy the other because of the similarities in characters. The strong female team, who seem to have abnormally large breasts and skintight outfits will definitely appeal to the male audience.
There is the same kind of CG used in both Solty and Bakuretsu, however Solty doesn't have the mech battles and instead uses cyborgs and modified humans for fighting. The settings are also very similar, in a futuristic Tokyo, where the population has been divided into those that have and those that don't.
Dirty Pair Flash is a rather explosive look at the futuristic antics of two "troubleshooters": Yuri and Kei, agents for a galactic organization that intends to reduce catastrophy and solve intergalactic crime. Unfortunately, any crime that is solved usually involves mass destruction, as the "Lovely Angels" use everything from large scale explosives to pure brute force to get the job done.
I can't help but be reminded of Burst Angel while watching Dirty Pair Flashl. Female protagonists that are assigned various jobs, with said jobs ending up being more complex than initially expected, followed by mayhem and destruction? That describes both of these series to a T. If you enjoyed one of them, I am sure you will enjoy the other.
The WWWA, or 3WA as it is affectionately known, is dedicated to one thing: The prosperity and well being of all the peoples of the Galactic League. The Dirty Pair are Kei and Yuri, the 3WA's top crime division female operatives with a 100% clean-up rate. The problem lies in the extreme collateral damage they cause to people and property in the single minded pursuit of their duty; including, if absolutely necessary, the wholesale destruction of cities, continents and even planets! No-one is safe, whether it be criminals, rogue robots, crazed computers and more likely, innocent bystanders!

Six years ago, a catastrophic event ravaged Tokyo. Amaha Masune was found at ground zero, physically unscathed, but without memories and with a child in her arms. Returning to Tokyo for the first time since the disaster, the slightly clumsy but cheerful Masune just wants make a new life and to raise her daughter without interference from the Child Welfare Agency. But unsolved murders are being committed all over Tokyo and a near-miss reveals her identity as the bearer of the Witchblade, a mysterious weapon linked to the disaster 6 years before, that seems to have a mind of its own. Giving in to the Witchblade seems dangerous, but when the powerful Dohji Corporation agrees to guarantee her a life together with her daughter if she works for them, can Masune pass up the chance?
If you liked Burst Angel then for sure you will enjoy Witchblade and vice-versa mainly because this shows have many things in common, from plot similarities to similar animation style and directing and both feature strong female protagonists who have to pass through difficult, extreme situations. Also both shows feature some romance aspects. I'm sure that if you liked one then for sure you will enjoy the other one as well.
