A young man responds to an ad seeking a cook, quite understandably he's a little put out when one of his would-be employers turns out to be a white-haired psychopath, called Jo. She lives in a gigantic tanklike vehicle along with three other girls: aggressive but soft-hearted cowgirl Meg, sneering computer whiz Amy and their more mature and reserved leader, Sei. Together, the four women are an elite bounty-hunting/mercenary team, and given their intrigue-filled lives, it's no wonder they don't have time to cook for themselves. In response to a secret and deadly underground crime ring, our fearless foursome decide its time to take a stand. Someone's got to protect the city... it might as well be them.
