Angel Links is a 26 episode Japanese anime TV series from WOWOW which aired in 1999. The show was produced by Sunrise studio and directed by Yuji Yamaguchi. Angel Links is set in the far-flung future where humanity has spread out throughout the galaxy, and where space pirates and rogue organizations are a constant threat. To combat these threats, the powerful Links Group keeps peace and order in the galaxy.

The main protagonist of the show is Meifon Li, who is the head of the Links Group's security division. She is a courageous and intelligent young woman who takes her role very seriously. Meifon has a tragic past, which motivates her to fight for justice and uphold peace in the galaxy.

The rest of the cast includes a diverse group of skilled pilots, mechanics, and engineers who all work together to keep the Links Group functioning. There is the stoic, no-nonsense commander "Hyle" Bruckner, who keeps everyone in line.

The group's skilled pilots include the cocky Duuz, the quiet and reserved Kosei, and the fiery and passionate Valeria. The Links Group's engineers, meanwhile, are led by the kindly and wise Professor Wong.

Throughout the series, the Links Group is constantly battling space pirates and rogue organizations, as well as dealing with Meifon's tragic past. However, they also find themselves uncovering some sinister secrets about the group they work for.

Based on the anime series Outlaw Star, Angel Links follows the same sci-fi western space opera theme. The characters are well-developed, especially Meifon, and their motivations and backstories are explored throughout the series.

The action sequences in Angel Links are incredibly well done, with a perfect balance between grand space battles and intense one-on-one fights. The animation is also top-notch for its time, and the high-quality sound design makes the action scenes all the more exhilarating.

One of the highlights of Angel Links is its world-building. The series is set in a vast, complex universe with its own unique culture and history, which is explored in-depth throughout the show. The various planets, space stations, and spaceships are all beautifully designed and realized.

Another standout element of the show is its score. The music, composed by Toshihiko Sahashi, perfectly captures the show's epic, swashbuckling tone, and the sweeping orchestral score adds to the drama and excitement of the action sequences.

Overall, Angel Links is an enthralling space opera anime series with lovable characters, intricate world-building, and intense action sequences. The show successfully blends elements of sci-fi and westerns, and the result is a thrilling and entertaining series that will keep viewers hooked from start to finish.

Angel Links is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (13 episodes). The series first aired on April 7, 1999.
