Movie Reviews

Surprisingly good...
Rowena Wendy Lim | Asia | 09/23/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"When I started watching Angel Links, I was on the verge of dismissing it as just another shoot up the enemy-of-the-day type of show. The first few eps feature Meifon and company's exploits fighting pirates, poachers, and other baddies in space... and I get to thinking, what's so special about that? Do I have to sit through the same drill every time?

Fortunately, Angel Links develops into something more. Amidst fighting pirates, Meifon is unexpectedly haunted by various visions and flashbacks of past events -- a man aiming a gun at her, her grandfather screaming, her mother shot dead, etc. and all of it seems to be tied to one name: Goryu. As the series progressed, I found myself getting more and more drawn into Meifon's tortured soul. Her grandfather had not only left her with a great fortune, but also with a legacy of vengeance and death. Meifon later discovers that she is not just his heiress, she is his assassin. She is subsequently torn between carrying out her grandfather's wishes, fighting her own inner turmoil, and living a normal life the way a normal girl her age is supposed to. Angel Links picks up considerably after its mundane start. After the real plot concerning Meifon is uncovered, the pace continues to escalate up until the climactic final battle with the elusive Goryu and the poignant conclusion.

The art and animation are spectacular for most part (I say most part because some of the in-betweening jobs aren't so great). Distinctive character designs and impressive space battle as well as melee action sequences comprise the whole series. There is also a bit of fan service, mostly close-ups of Meifon's big and bouncy boobs -- which are also the hiding place of her winged cat / weapon Taffei. Taffei flies out of Meifon's cleavage whenever she's in danger, or whenever she calls him. He can transform into a powerful sword that can slice almost anything in half.

Angel Links is a surprisingly good series. I'm glad I took the time to check it out despite the lukewarm reviews I had encountered prior to watching.
