Here is how MyAnimeList describes this anime OVA:

Iria is the story of a girl and the Alien being she loves to hate. The series begins with her brother, Gren, taking a job. He is a bounty hunter, and one well known for his incredible skill. Iria, being a skilled apprentice bounty hunter herself, tags along. What is the job, one might ask. It is to find out what has happened to the crew and cargo of a Space Station. Needless to say, nothing is as it seems, and the war between Iria and Zeiram begins in earnest.

My Thoughts

I saw this anime OVA back in the 1990s, probably on the Syfy Channel, on their Ani-Saturday (whatever) block, where they used to show an anime on Saturday mornings.

This weekend, this anime came to my mind when I was thinking, but I could not remember the name of it.

I mentioned it to my brother GC to see if he had seen an anime like this, and if he could remember the name.

He never saw this anime, but amazingly he was able to find the name of it based on my description of the main villain; well done GC, and thank you.

Since it had been many years since I saw it, and he had never seen it, we decided to watch it.

The English voice acting was not so great at times, as you would expect for an anime this age, but it was not the worst; so it did not bother us too much.

It was an anime of its time, with some unique designs, and it held up a little better than I had expected.

The end,
