Angel Cop (1989 - 1994)

Angel Cop is a six part OVA from DAST Corporation and Studio 88. Comparable to Mad Bull 34, Angel Cop was one of Manga Entertainment UK's early 90's releases that became notorious for it's over-the-top violence, inconsistent animation quality, low-quality "punched-up" dub, and anti-American (anti-Semitic in the original Japanese dialogue) sentiments.

The following weapons were used in the OVA Angel Cop:


Angel's Custom M1911

"Angel" uses a custom M1911 pistol with either a nickel or stainless steel finish, target sights, an ambidextrous safety, ported compensator, and grips that inexplicably extend over the lower part of the slide.

"Don't look so surprised, I'm your fuckin' backup." Angel introduces herself after blowing a suspects skull apart with her M1911.
Angel interrogates a suspect by... shoving a gun in his face and ranting about Communism.
Tip: If your weapon's muzzle flash is neon blue, you might should consider a different brand of ammunition. Also, no human's thumbs should be able to do that.

Colt Python

In the first episode, Raiden carries a Colt Python revolver.

Colt Python with 4" Barrel - .357 Magnum.
"We've ghott'n rehports of a leak! We're makin' a sahfty inspection!" Raiden prepares to enter a suspected Red May hideout while trying to fake an American accent.

Hacker carries a Beretta 93R as his primary weapon.

Cybernetic Soldier Pistol

Dr. Ichihara offers Angel this fictional pistol in episode 3. It is described as having recoil harsh enough to break a normal person's arm after two shots, and appears to be built around a variant of the Beretta 92 pistol series.

A closeup of the pistol's frame. Notice the Beretta 92-style takedown latch.
"Ichihara said that the recoil off this gun could break my arm. Well, here goes!" Angel readies a fresh magazine for the pistol. Note the Beretta 92-style external trigger bar.
"...But if this is justice then I'm a banana!" (This is not a joke, she actually says that in this scene.)

Note: If you plan on making a series with an anti-American slant, having your protagonists kill your own country's best soldiers with an American weapon does not help you.

Colt Model 733

Maisaka's bodyguards carry Colt Model 733 carbines.

Colt Model 733 - 5.56x45mm.
Asura uses his psychic powers to make a headless bodyguard turn his rifle on Maisaka. Yes, it's as silly as it sounds.

Unknown Automatic

Hacker is seen using a bizarre weapon that is something of a mashup between several different assault rifle and machine gun designs. The weapon is always stockless and outfitted with a sound suppressor and occasionally a brass catcher.

The grossly disproportionate Hacker trains his weapon on Lucifer (yes, that's the villain's name).
Hacker watches his weapon fall apart as Lucifer tears it apart with her mind.
