Bubblegum Crisis OAV
I own this OAV on video and last watched it a few years ago. I originally bought it because many friends recommended it and i had read others' positive reviews. Well, it must have been all the hype, because I was a little disappointed after finishing the series. I really tried to like it, but overall, the series just seemed OK. The animation is not bad for the 80's, but not great. I didn't find the mechs or powersuit designs to be all that great (I'm a great fan of Macross designs), nor did I feel overly moved by any particular character.

One trait that does stand out, however, is the soundtrack. Really well done and in the OAV I bought, there's even a music video on the first tape!

So, overall score is a 7: worth seeing, but not worth buying!

I really can't think of anything to say about BGC that hasn't been said before. It's just a really cool anime.

What else can I possibly say that hasnt already been said about this classic series? I'd really been interested in seeing the new series. Heard AIC did quite a number on it.

I oughta give a separate rating for each OAV because while I liked some, I was MUCH less than enthusiastic about others.

But the 8th one -- Scoop Chase -- was GREAT. Maybe I like it because there's so much Nene. It was funny. OAVs 5 and 6 were good, with intense action and nice character development for Priss.

I LOVE Sylia and Nene -- probably two of the more interesting characters I've enountered. All in all the four characters balance out just right in terms of personality.

This was one of the first anime series I watched six years ago when I first started getting into anime. It was looking pretty good to me at the time (especially considering that I had only seen "Harmegeddon" and "Crystal Triangle") but now that I've seen sooooooo many titles over the years this series is extremely outdated and doesn't look half as good as some of the other titles which have come into production. And it doesn't all have to do with just the year an anime has been produced. From the way I see it, anime that transcends time has at least two factors; memorable characters and excellent art/animation (i.e. films such as "Akira" and "Wings of Honnemise"). BGC had potential to be a transcending classic, but just didn't make it... The music was cool, and most of the characters were interesting and well developed. However, what this OAV series needed was a bigger budget in the animation production department. The animation in the first two episodes was terrible! And, although it improved throughout the series, it still just didn't make the buck. Even some of the storylines were just painfully melo-dramatic (i.e. the situation with Priss and her vampire friend). I give it a '4' because I enjoyed most of the music, some of the animation, and most of the characters. But you won't find it in my collection. But you will in a BGC fan's. So it all depends on your taste. But there is so much more out there that is really better than this series, so it's not really worth the time.

My Favortie Anime Series :) It's the kinda thing I live for! After all I made a page for it! Bubblegum Universe!

It's got everything :) I'll admit after watching it a million times it does get predictable, but it still rules! :D Nothing compares to the BGC! Well... Okay, Bubblegum Crisis: Tokyo 2040 does... but that's about it :P

The first time I saw this series, back in 1989, on the shelf at the books Nippon booth at the San Diego Comicon, I was INTRIGUED. The art looked plenty cool...then I saw a picture of the Motoslave. That was it. I "HAD" to see this show. Unfortunately, it wasn't translated untill '92. I did aquire the tapes as soon as they came out and you know what....the show was BETTER than I expected. While the animation in the first few episodes was uneven (great in some spots and poor in others) it stabilized by the 4th episode. The plot built from episode to episode, building on events from previous episodes...culminating in episodes 5 and 6...which I consider the two greatest "Episodes" in anime history. The only reason I don't give this show a "10" is because 10 is reserved for my all time favorite anime...Dangaio...but BGC is well deserving on one.

BGC was the anime to introduce the mysterious beauty, the rebellious hothead, the adorable technophile, and the "everyman" character. All those other anime are just copying BGC! Rei Ayanami is NOTHING compared to Sylia! April is just a wannabe Priss! ALL HAIL SUZUKI'S DIVINE CREATION! And the TV series is pretty cool too.

This was the first anime I saw.

To say the least I was hooked! After seeing a friends tape, I ran to the store and bought all 8 right away. The music, the animation, the story, the artwork all hooked me right away, I became a major otaku (owning nearly 300 some tapes at the present, and buying 1-3 a week.)

I love Sonoda's character designs. AND Largo is definately one of the coolest villans ever, I want his suit!

And as for BGC2040... I've seen ep6 raw Japanese. It's cool! From what I saw and what I understood, it was very cool. Cmon, Nene uses Compaq computers (lots of em) and you can easily make out the Win98J os on her comp! It was great!
