Minayuri's Bubblegum Crisis Ova Review

Bubblegum Crisis

Rated: 10

BGC and ADP Files was a great anime experience for me, both are great classic anime titles to enjoy. The DVD's that were released are filled with bonuses, such as music videos and a video special inculded in the second disc of the BGC collection of the voice actresses of the Knight Sabers and Vision(voiced by the talented Maiko Hashimoto, famous for Vision's songs Say Yes! and Never The End), the video special was also fun to watch and see the voice actresses act in character. The BGC universe can be best described as a mix of Blade Runner, The Terminator, and Streets of Fire; three films that inspired the creation of BGC .

NovaProspekt's Bubblegum Crisis Tv Review

Bubblegum Crisis

Rated: 7

Considering the story, character development, and action sequences of this series, I think everything comes together quite well. It's an interesting sci-fi vision that's very cohesive, even more-so than the OVA. The music is implemented well and follows the atmosphere on-screen. Dissapointing sound effects take away from the series, making it almost cheesy at times. It could've been so much better. If you can look past that, then you will find a great science fiction story that is entertaining all the way through. The ending wraps up the main story of the series, but still leaves some strings untied. If you can't stand not having everything tied up nicely at the end, then that might frustrate you, but it didn't bother me one bit.

This series has a 15 or older age rating, and I agree.

GsG9's Bubblegum Crisis Tv Review

Bubblegum Crisis

Rated: 6

Bubblegum Crisis is a decent series in its own right, but it is almost as interesting for the historical perspective it offers--something of a seminal Cyberpunk anime series, it is the series that started the whole multi-episode OAV genre, as well as an interesting illustration of the change in production techniques between the 80s and 90s.

That said Bubblegum Crisis isn't objectively terribly impressive, but it has managed to remain popular over the years since its introduction thanks to a solid rock soundtrack (with a connection to the story, no less), a developed dystopian vision (much of which is ripped straight out of Blade Runner--just watch the cityscapes in the opening sequence), and also because it's just plain well done.

Paptimus909's Bubblegum Crisis Tv Review

Bubblegum Crisis

Rated: 9

Although I haven’t seen much past the original BGC OVA, these two series really capture a unique perspective on the time and presentation of somewhat varied plot. They didn’t feel the need to be overly action oriented to “wow� the viewer, but they were more like the aside that everyone waits for to get their fix before the time is up to watch something else. The main plot element that I thought was pretty cool was the general disposition of the main character, Kenji, 'til about the bitter end; reminds me a lot of Squall (little more active…) from FFVIII. Maybe that’s not the best example of originality then….
