Just an announcement for Joe fans out there still unfaimilar with the works of the studio that'll be producing our new G.I. Joe series this year. In stores Tuesday the first volume of the series "Burst Angel" will be hitting shelves. Short synopsis:

"A new law's been passed in Tokyo. Ordinary folks are now allowed to freely carry firearms; shoot, they're even legally allowed to use'em. You might think that crime would increase, and you’d be right. But the arrest rate’s gone down. After all, the only prison a dead man needs is a hole in the ground. All thanks to RAPT.

The Recent Armed Police of Tokyo is stealing away jurisdiction from the local authorities quicker than a bullet leaves a barrel. What that means is that folks are getting desperate. And desperate people with itchy fingers mean more bodies in the streets.

Now, I'm not sure if she came from up above or somewhere way down below, but an angel's just come to Earth. She's an enigma, but with her partners Sei, Amy, and Meg, she's the best chance this town's got. Her name's Jo. And there’s a new sheriff in town."

This an Anime I've been waiting to see since I first heard about it in 2003. It's got tons of action, great visuals, a kick-*** story that combines sci-fi and Spaghetti Western elements, and chute girls with big guns!
For anyone who's yet to watch any of Studio GONZO's titles yet since it was announced they would be doing the new Joe animated series, I highly recommend this series as an intro to their work and also those who have already seen titles like "Hellsing", "Blue Sub No.6", and "Yukikaze".
