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.

While waiting for their ticket to hit it big time, a mysterious woman named Hilda leaves them with a key to the puzzle of finding a starship of great power, known only as the Outlaw Star. What are these long lost spaceships and what is the Galactic Leyline?
Working together as a group, the characters in Outlaw Star and Burst Angel manage to get through all sorts of situations. Both start out very episodic and gain more of a story as they continue. There's a bit of gunslinger action and some mecha in both, though Outlaw Star includes some magic as well. The main characters are also very similar.
