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

by -

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 -

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 -

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.

Quality is Great! Actual HD!

by -

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 -

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.

Mad Machine


Episode 7 was the first Anime (out side of Sailor moon) I ever saw, my uncle rented it for me one weekend with out knowing what it was he got. I was 7 and i have been addicted to Anime/Cyberpunk material ever since. Anything better then this was supported by this series, so though its dated understand you wouldn't have much of what you have seen with out this.

80s Classic

by -

Long ago in the 90s, I watched the remake of this series, but never got to experience the original. Well, I can now say the original Bubblegum Crisis is definitely worth it! I loved the dark, brooding animation and the fantastic music. Priss especially was awesome. Her character stole the show.

Despite its futuristic setting, the series has a sense of gritty realism to it. The Knight Sabers don't always win. Sometimes, they fail. Sometimes, the innocents they're trying to protect die right in front of them. And when they do win...We see them actually kill the bad guys, at least some of the time. This really lends tension and weight to each episode, and each decision the characters make.

Bubblegum Crisis was one of those anime which, at the time, really pushed the boundaries on what was possible. It's fascinating to watch it now and appreciate it both for itself and for its contribution to anime as a whole. Absolutely fantastic addition to my collection.

Good remaster on a classic series


This series is what really piqued my interest in anime. While there are flaws (especially near the end where you can see the direction it was supposed to go) - this is completely worth your time...and then some.

A Flawed But Beautiful Essential for Retro Anime Fanatics

by -

Bubblegum Crisis is a chipped diamond. Flawed but beautiful, maybe more beautiful because of the flaws. I don't know the full BTS story, but Bubblegum Crisis wasn't finished (until Bubblegum Crash perhaps) but it doesn't much matter. The 8 episodes we get are episodic and play out like individual mini movies with their own identities and plots. The art is a dreamy neon 80's dream. The music is catchy and a pairs perfectly with the amazing hand-drawn animation. When people reminisce about the golden age of anime, this is what they are talking about. Bubblegum Crisis is something special despite it's short length and under developed characters. This is a must-own for retro anime fans and animation nerds who adore the warmth and beauty of classic 2D animation... or anyone who just wants to watch beautiful women kick the heck out of terminator inspired cyborgs to the beat of awesome 80's J-Rock.
