Underwhelming, feels like a deleted scene

"Don't get me wrong, I am definitley a "Bakuretsu Tenshi" fan. I usually go for more solid fare than Burst Angel but I fell for its quasi-western motif and old-school "Xena-rescues-Gabrielle (again)" format. When I heard this OVA was to be a prequel, I had hoped it would be an anime version of the (so far) Japanese-only manga. Instead we got what amounted to a one-shot episode that reveals practically nothing about our duo, doing nothing to further the overall story and nothing to develop our characters (except, perhaps, for Jo's sense of humour - i.e. the cat scene at the start, which for me was the only element worth-while).
In the end, "Infinity" felt like one big deleted scene amongst a bunch of other half-hearted DVD extras. It wasn't the worst episode, by far, but if you buy it, go into it knowing that it is nothing more than a "lost" episode that doesn't reveal much.
Anime Fans are getting screwed.

"It seems that anime fans are getting screwed by the people that bring it over more and more. I would not pay more than $5 for this dvd. It is a single episode with a bunch of extras that are not worth the money you are going to pay. You are better off finding a fan subbed or illegal copy on the net, instead of letting Funimation take your hard earn money for junk."
More Burst Angel Goodness

"I thought this would just be complete filler but they actually tied things in fairly well with some of the themes of the series (e.g. the cruelty against the downtrodden) and we get to find out a little bit more about the rest of the orphans, the police officer who took them in, etc. The downside is it's basically an additional episode which hurts in the bang-for-your-buck department. Make sure you check out the character design extra - that's the part that shows things five years in the future and it adds a lot of value to this DVD. I just hope sales in Japan and here are enough to get us a lengthier OVA release or a second season!"
