Storyline

In 2100, the newly built Bayside City serves as Japan's premier international port. The Angel Arms Company is established by a former policewoman named Takako, to help wage war on terrorism with armed security suits. When the mayor is assassinated, the women of Angel Arms end up protecting the evil crime-lord Hassan, in hopes that his information will help bring down a global terror ring. Takako's back is to the wall as a band of criminals plot to kill Hassan, and the organization's leader is revealed to be the former lover of Angel Arms' own Alisa. Written by dmh2000

Do not go into this expecting another Ghost in the Shell. It really isn't. Its more of a Bubblegum Crisis knock off. Five hot chicks, who work for another hot chick, pilot a squad of very kewl looking 'Land Mates', or power armours, and fight crime.

It has some neat action scenes, and some very original, if impractical robot designs. But it is ultimatly disapointing.
