Trivia

Set six to seven years after the original Bubblegum Crisis, but this series is quite different in its continuity with the original. The first few episodes deal with Lina Yamazaki searching for and joining the Knight Sabers, but in the original series, Lina was already an established member of the team. See more »

A great remake of a classic series
8 January 2001 | by (Keene NH USA) – See all my reviews

The original Bubblegum Crisis came out in 1985 and spawned a very popular following on both sides of the pacific. It was also one of the earliest anime titles to get a video release in the states. An 8-part OAV series, it was a mix of Charlies's Angels, Batman, and Terminator. Now, it's been remade as a television series. Although the animation has a much cleaner look and incredibly vivid color, it's not as fluid as the original OAVs, but that shouldn't be a problem. The story expands on the concepts of the OAV, and exceeds them to a degree. It's also much darker, to an extent. The Boomer design isn't as realistic as those in the original OAVs-here, the Boomers appear more like Zombies or Monsters when they go nuts. The character designs and personalities are also very different(and very 90's) But the changes help improve the series rather than hinder it. Overall, it's very pleasing.
