Ratings & Reviews
Good Chance For Those Who Missed The Kickstarter Set
This a great older series but it really makes me glad that I got the kickstarter edition which is on 3 discs instead of 1 like this release. Like a lot of people I'd be concerned about picture quality as a result of cramming all the episodes onto 1 bluray. But still it's a great opportunity for those who missed the ks release to get the series on bluray.
Worth owning for sure
One of my very first Anime experiences, and one I still re-watch from time to time. Great music and action with some serious ties to blade runner.
Couldn't wait, you shouldn't either

I really loved this anime when it first came out. If you haven't seen this one, then you should. I was really glad to hear that got a blu-ray release and couldn't wait to get my hands on it. a really slick cover that pays homage to the original release box cover.
A Classic Sci-Fi that still rocks on Blu-ray
by MKY -
This anime series started it all for me. While the animation is dated and only 8 episodes long, it was the soundtracks that made this series ROCK! The Blu-ray is in 4:3, but much improved in 1080p video quality.
The story is the usual plot of a scientist (Sylia's father) that is killed by the evil Genom Corporation, one day Sylia receives a package in the mail, and the data for the next GEN combat hard suit technology is now in the hands of four women who call themselves the Knight Sabers.
It's man VS machine or rather women VS machine that has the Knight Sabers taking on Mason of Genom to foiling a terrorist attack against the AD Police of Tokyo. While pricy for 8 episodes, I upgraded to Blu-ray because of the rockin' music, replay value, and it's a classic anime!
A must see 80s anime
by Trexbet -
Bubblegum Crisis is the definite 80s anime aesthetic experience.
This is an animes take on cyperpunk where we are brought into a futuristic world with one of the main characters is a punk rock singer and motorcycle gangs linger the techno cities. It's a world where things are comfortable and amazing but at the same time edgy with tension everywhere.
Unfortunately due to the fact that Bubblegum crisis isn't complete and their approach at story telling, that this does feel more like a style over substance affair, not to an extreme extent though because the stories they do tell do leave an impression. Just don't be surprised to feel left wanting more, feeling like that story wasn't resolved, "when are they going to explain that" and "aw..it's over?".
If you are able to get passed those issues, then you will be enamored by the tragically beautiful world and their characters. Almost every scene made me want to screenshot it or make a gif of it so that I could enjoy later.
You need this!

The best. A cyberpunk gem. Love, love, love it. Good story, classic BGM. Love the the sound effects. Nice extras.
Quality is Great! Actual HD!

Picked this up recently, and have to say that even though all 8 episodes are on one disc, the quality is great! If you like classic hand drawn animation with high frame rates, action/violence, and awesome 80s music this should be added to your collection!
An action packed ANIME CYBERPUNK from the 1980s
by Ivan -
Bubblegum Crisis has everything a true anime fan is looking for: ACTION, TECHNOLOGY, BEAUTIFUL WAIFUS, and intelligent philosophy. Produced by legendary animation studio AIC this OVA series not only shows us a stunning animation but also a truly scary reality where corporations are more powerful than a government. The music in this OVA series is incredibly well done, I will not say more about because you have to experience it for yourself
This release is very simple; however, the image quality is superb. The remastering process carefully done
If you want to experience something different from today’s anime series, then bubblegum crisis will not disappoint you.
