Mediocre, but perhaps a bit better than volume 1

"This second disc (of 4) of Angel Links marks an improvement over the first. The focus of attention is happily less on the heroine's ridiculously large chest and more on what's going on around her. If you haven't seen the first volume (which is the proper place to start), Angel Links is the story of a pirate-hunting company run by 16-year old Meifon Li. This disc contains episodes 4, 5, and 6 of this show, which is a mediocre space adventure show.Episode 4 is by far the best episode. It focuses on Kosei, the second in command, and reveals him as an accidental playboy, besieged by interested women. The next episode reveals the origins of Meifon's work upon the death of her grandfather. The last on this disc ventures into the mysterious past that's slowly being revealed about Meifon. The big improvement here is Kosei, who becomes a likeable character and elevates the show. That said, it's hard to really recommend Angel Links. It isn't notably bad in any way (although the English dub actress for Meifon was poorly cast), but it isn't especially good. I'm buying it because it is getting better and I like the genre.One last content note: although nothing is really shown, on this one disc Meifon takes two showers on-screen for no apparent purpose. So beware if this offends you."
