The series was originally planned, according to some sources, to be 13 episodes long. However, due to contractual obligations, specifically for Kinuko Ômori, the seijuu (voice actor), Priss's character was originally written to be killed during episode 6: Red Eye's, but Ms. Omori's contract was extended. The heavy beating Priss receives in this episode is mostly from the original plans for Priss's death. This would also have changed episode 7: Double Vision, as it is rumored that Vision would have taken Priss's place among the Knight Sabers. In fact, in episode 8: Scoop Chase, a clip of a Robocop-like spoof shown during the episode shows a brief glimpse of Vision in the hardsuit she would have worn. The series was cancelled after eight episodes, though sources say that Bubblegum Crash! was a compilation of the events planned in those last five episodes. See more »
Do you know about the Knight Sabers?
Uh-huh, I've heard about them.
Why do you suppose they fight boomers? I hear they take their clients for lots of money, but... I wonder... if they're supposed to be the good guys.

I don't know... But fighting boomers means taking on Genom, doesn't it? For a mere four people to take on such a large corporation is just... well... Genom makes a lot of things that make wars possible. But they also make boomers that are useful to society. And ...

A product of the golden age of anime(mid to late 80s)Bubblegum Crisis has all the essential elements of great sci-fi and much more. There are the usual themes about technology and corporate domination but developed further than usual. But, best of all it has the great and incomparable Priss, perhaps the greatest and most glorious fictional female character ever created. The story grows in depth and complexity as the series progresses; often a forgotten thread gets picked up again later. The music ranks as among the most atmospheric in anime, the songs are topnotch and range from breathless rockers to melancholy ballads. Ultimately, it's more a modern myth in the making than just another sci-fi with babes. The impulse behind Bubblegum Crisis is that which gave us Athena.
