Ratings & Reviews
This Anime was Good From the Start....
The graphics were a bit dated but overall was a good dvd to see. Alot of tank and mecha battles while watching it from the start. Solid plot, characters and music are really good too. Definitely, a good anime for anyones collection.
A wonderful addition to any BGC fan's collection!
A.D. Police Case Files is a nice back story on the lives and jobs of the AD Police. After watching the original Bubble Gum Crisis I enjoyed watching this as well. As always, the music is beautifuly done, the art is superb for the time frame and the stories are intoxicating. I highly recomend this mini-series to all BGC fans!
Good Prequel to the orignal BGC series
First this is not the the train wreck of a remake that ADV put out in the early 2000s.
What these are are a series of short stories set in the original Bubble Gum Crisis story.
Each story stands apart and does a fairly good job of bringing back the dark cyberpunk dystopian future that Bubble Gum Crisis was good for.
This series takes place prior to the formation of the "Knight Sabers" and primarily focuses on a much younger AD Police officer Leon McNichol as a rookie AD Police officer. Other stories revolve around where the line of human vs machine is really drawn.
Series came out in 1990, so for those looking for the cutesy artwork look elsewhere.. however for fans of the original BGC.. This and Crash are must haves.
Not Groundbreaking but still Good

I remember Bubblegum Crisis had a lot of spin offs but I never gave this title a chance up until now. The animation is dated and the music is too but the plot for the first two episodes are good. It doesn't take long to figure out the message behind the first two episodes but the weakest one was definitely the final episode. As for the voice acting, it depends if you like your anime dubbed or subbed. The dubbed wasn't too bad but it didn't sound natural either. It felt like they were struggling on some of the emotional moments. Overall, I'd recommend this title but I don't think you have to watch this first if you want to get into Bubblegum Crisis.
