Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040 has some things going for it: Great style, colors, designs, and some nice music tracks. The backgrounds have that rich, detailed, old school anime style. The character designs and mecha are nicely done. As for the animation... I've seen better, even in a television series. I looked forward to the sequences of Priss performing her concerts. That's what I enjoyed about the original series: the songs and the epic action sequences. To me, it doesn't surpass the original, though it's pretty cool. They should have focused more attention on animating Priss' performances, in my opinion. All in all, I prefer the original series to this, but there is quantity here, more so than quality.
