4.0 out of 5 stars Bubblegum Crisis, ten years later. August 28, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Here is BGC with new character designs, new stories, and altered characters. You'll love this if you never saw the old BGC (no excuse for that), since the animation is excellent, the character development is good and the combat is impressive. For everyone else, though, it's tough to reconcile this with the classic images of the old BGC. Well, Linna is the best of the new characters. While she is nothing like her old self (this 90-s inspired series is sans aerobics :), she is smart, tough at times, and very intriguing because she's trying to get into the Knight Sabers as the series develops; the addition of a team member was something the old OAVs never dealt with. Priss seems more burned out and moody. She still rides bikes, still sings, (no wig :) and still stupidly fights Boomers without her hard suit, but she seems a lot like Adam Warren's melancholy characterization of her in the comic. Nene isn't changed much; she is still working with the AD Police, still a hacker, and still saccharine, but the Ellen DeGeneres hair doesn't work for her - where are the flourescent locks that are supposed to denote kawaii charas? Sylia is in much the same situation as before and has many of the same habits, but she looks considerably different. She is also even more aloof, though she seems to be a bit promiscuous here. The old Sylia was much more charming.
The rewritten Knight Sabers are OK, especially Linna, but the supporting cast is boring. Leon is more of a gritty veteran type instead of a player, and Daley, who was funny as hell in the old BGC, is a bespectacled yuppie and serves no purpose. Quincy is immobile (literally wired into the Genom mainframe) and acts like a warped philosopher, not the formidable heavy that he was before.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great start! Absolutely no inferior to original! September 10, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
So this is the "new" Bubblegum Crisis. Many fans think that re-telling this wonderful story it's a crime, and that the old OAV are absolutely untouchable. Yes, it's true: "old" BGC is unforgettable and totally unique, but... it's also too short and unfinished. Eight OAV are not enough to tell such a complex story. Now there is this new series: Bubblegum Crisis 2040. With 26 episodes, there is all the space and time needed to build a great anime and a great story. Of course, this it's a TV show, so animation quality is inferior to OAVs. Of course, music lacks the OAV beauty. Of course, character designs have been changed. But... this _IS_ Bubblegum Crisis, 100% guaranteed. As an example... did you think that "Star Trek" was only Kirk, Spock & McCoy? Then you'll don't like BGC 2040. But if you have an open mind, you will recognize the ambientation, the "story flavour", the BGC feeling. Bubblegum Crisis is about themes like umanity (and loss of it), man and machine differences, dangers of technology, revenges and dark souls. All these things were in the "old" OAV and they are in this series, this is for sure. Great start! And I'm sure next episodes will be still better.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic sci-fi Anime August 5, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
The story is set in future tokyo (what sci-fi anime is not?) which is still recovering from a major earthquake. The story revolves around the fight between a corrupt company called GENOM and a group of female vigilantes called Knight Sabers. This 8-part series has a excellent collection of songs that make up its soundtrack. The music reminds me of 80's rock and roll. If you watch only one anime series in your life make it this one. You won't be disappointed!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A new world January 18, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
As a Bubblegum crisis fan for many years, I snatched this up the moment I saw it on the shelf and have not been disappointed. It is not the same old Bubblegum Crisis. The characters have been redone, mostly for the better, except Priss who is the same old Priss. Sylia has suffered from this rewrite in my opinion, turning into someone who is in need of a good psychiatrist. The music isn't as good as in the original, but the animation is much better.
This first tape in the series starts off somewhat slowly and it takes some patience to get to the action and the boomers, or even the Knight Sabers for that matter. The original started with a a bang, this version starts in a more mundane fashion, but at the same time, this is the dawn of the Knight Sabers existance as they are first emurging onto the landscape of Mega-Tokyo.
I bought this tape in only the subtitled version and found it to be good. I have seen tape two in both formats, and have to say that while I usually prefer subtatiled anime, in this case I prefer the dubbed. It is well done and there are subtle points which are missed when reading the sub-titles which come through more clearly in the dubbed version.
All in all, I am very happy with the new Bubblegum Crisis and have already placed my orders for the next two tapes in the series.
