It is several years after a massive earthquake, Boomers are created to help humans rebuild Tokyo. Eventually, the Boomers start going rogue and tearing things up, so the Knight Sabers have to step in and stop them and they do a better job than the AD Police, their rivals, do.
This anime is full of excellent battle scenes, very good animation, weird monsters (the rogue Boomers), and cool looking armor. This is a must have for anime collector. This particular collection is excellent because it's cheaper to buy all three volumes than it is to buy the boxset (in some places, like the Amazon marketplace) or the series seperately (which has six volumes) since one volume costs less than buying one volume and it has 9 episodes. ADV has has made a smart move by releasing the series like this and I applaud them.
I should also mention that the power suits the women use actually periodically experience reasonable tehcnical difficulties, and not just when it's convenient to enhance the plot, although it does. Too often, in "big robot anime", nothing goes wrong with these things, ever; and they are used in situations where something more conventional would perhaps work better. If you are fighting renegade robots however, ehnancing your own movements and armoring yourself in slight mimicry of them might not be such a bad idea.
But perhaps the biggest selling point about this dvd is the sheer amount of content you recieve. This DVD includes nine episodes, compared to the three to five you usually get.
Bubblegum Crisis is really cool. The futuristic neo-punk setting is unique and the characters are awesome. This was one of the first anime I ever bought and now almost 300 series purchases later I have to say it's still a favorite. This anime is timeless. I've probably watched it through 50 times or so and it never gets old. There's nothing stopping you from buying and loving this show so go for it. You'll really like it.
