Background Information

Iria Zeiram: the Animation is a six episode OVA series featuring Iria, a female bounty hunter. The series serves as a prequel to the original live-action film Zeiram directed by Keita Amemiya (Best known for Clocktower 3 and the director of most of the Kamen Rider movies), taking place several years earlier when Iria is still a rookie and detailing the events surrounding her first encounter with the unstoppable Zeiram. Iria also uncovers a conspiracy in the use of Zeiram as a cat's-paw by the governing entity. It's a short, quality series that's easy to get absorbed in.
