Bubblegum Crisis

by -

A lot of fans have called this the cyberpunk of anime. The AD Police are in charge of stopping out of control robots called Boomers, but when the action heats up a group of crime fighting women in hardsuits go to work. They are the Knight Sabers. Priss, Sylia, Linna, and Nene devote themselves to keeping the peace in Mega Tokyo, and stopping Genom(who builds Boomers)from it's power hungry goals. The animation is classic 80s and the picture has been remastered to look great. There may only be 8 episodes, but some of them are longer then a half hour, and have interesting stories. The best part is the music which has been dubbed in English. Priss is the lead singer in a band named the Replicants, and sings most of the songs in the series which are awesome! With some violence, a little fan service, and lots of action this is a series that rocks!

A must watch

by

The original Bubblegum Crisis... much hyped and often imitated but never duplicated!
If your an anime fan you owe it to yourself to check this series out.. pretty much a must watch to see where and what form the modern anime genre in general came from.

Late 80's early 90's OVA's Have good stories and good music.. while your at it pick up BGC Crash and AD Police Files while you can!

This is classic anime and hard to beat.

Can see why this was better than the 2040 anime

by

Despite being only 8 OVA episodes, it was amazing. 8 episodes [technically 14 if you include the 2 OVA DVDs] is somewhat short, but it was more than enough than what the 2040 anime offered in terms of story, music and characters. Put it this way, both Priss and Leon were way more awesome than their 2040 counterpart.

Anyways, need to talk about the DVDs. First off, it comes in a nice DVD box with 4 DVDs = 2 OVA eps each with some great extras like Music Videos and artwork. Only downside/annoyance is that there's no all play feature for the episodes. That means when you finish 1 episode, it goes back to the main menu and you have to select the next one. Sure, it's only 2 episodes, but it can get annoying if you decide to rewatch the series from time to time.

Overall, great series. Not too long of a series and can finish within a good week or so. If you watched the 2040 anime first and was disappointed, then give the original anime a shot.

Original Rules.

I had seen B.G.C. 2040 a few years ago on TV, but bought the original series because I read the reviews about how much better it was. I have to agree it was better in style & character development. It was done in the 80s with the look of the Dirty Pair series I have, but with 4 girls & mecha. The action was great & there were plenty of songs. I noticed Masami Obari was one of the directors and he used one of his signature styles in a fight scene; Specifically when two male combatants strike each others' fists, just like in Voltage Fighter Gowkieser & Fatal Fury: The Motion Picture. All-in-all, a great series to watch, but parents beware. The 13 + rating is for violence, swearing and brief nudity but it is not too over the top. This is a series you want to add in your collection.

Fun if highly flawed cyberpunk anime in decent boxset

by -

Heavily inspired by Ridley Scott's BladeRunner and other cyberpunk media, "Bubblegum Crisis" is an entertaining if not wholly satisfactory late 80's OVA series. While there is no ending, really, thanks to inner turmoil with the production studios, what is contained in this boxed set is the original 8 episodes of the episodic series.

The image quality on the discs is... OK. Obviously an early 2000's remaster of less than stellar source material, but in its own way helps to give an extra charm to the whole "very 80's"-ness of it all. Audio is fine with the English dub clearly being of higher recording quality. Extras are plentiful and fill out each disc with a mix of promos and behind-the-scenes material.

All in all, this is a good set to pick up if you're curious about this Oldtoku favorite. The show is heavily flawed, but contains an unmistakable charm that will keep you entertained.
