What a classic, I love BGC.

Oh, and for those who wanna delve deeper, get all three volumes of the BGS tabletop RPG by R. Talsorian Games. Not only is it an incredibly fun game(it’s based on Cyberpunk 2020), it’s also a great sourcebook and artbook, with lots of notes on storyline, mecha designs, and many concept sketches of unused characters and Boomers.

There’s also a remake of BGC, BGC 2040, and it’s a great series on its own as well. Although I prefer the original characters and style, BGC 2040 is worthy of the name, and some characters I actually like more in 2040(Linna, for example, is a MUCH more interesting and strong character in 2040).

Wiremuse said:

BGC is without a doubt one of my favorite all time shows. To those who do like anime in this genre I’d also highly reccomend the AD Police Files a 3 OVA spin off from the original BGC centering around(obviously) the AD Police and some of their cases http://www.animeigo.com/Products/ADP.t Not to be confused with the crap AD Police tv anime series that came out.

DannyV_El_Acme said:

Oh, and LARGO ROCKS.

SFAM said:

Hi guys, sorry I took so long to get to this title. And yeah, its loads of fun. I’ll probably be putting up a review for Bubblegum Crash later this week.

EDIT: And I’ll be getting around to doing a page 2 of my BGC review for more screencaps in the next day or so.

Bartaaa404 said:

Excellent! However I don’t think it deserves a 8/10, it definetely deserves a 10/10! Considering that it influenced so many generation or artists/authors/anime afterwards and still has a rabid fanbase of many people who consider it the “one of the best of anime”.

As Blade Runner”&”Neuromancer” were for cyperpunk for movies&books, “Bubblegum Crisis” was the cyberpunk for anime.

Anybody notice that Priss’s band was called “the Replicants” just like the robots in ‘Blade Runner’? Or how Leon where’s his sunglasses indoors, when its night time… lol.

BGC & BGC: Toyko 2040 is the best two anime of all time! And my two personal fav’s!

DannyV_El_Acme said:

I think the 8/10 rating is appropriate. BGC is definitely influential and an excellent cyberpunk anime, but I think other anime like Akira, GITS and Lain are much more important for cyberpunk enthusiasts.

BGC rocks face, though, it’s definitely one of my all-time favorites. It would have made an awesome videogame…

DannyV_El_Acme said:

Oh, and fun fact: Bubblegum Crisis 2040 was written by Chiaki Konaka, a name that should be known to all fans of cyberpunk anime, having written such great shows as Lain, Texhnolyze, The Big O, Armitage III and the newest Astro Boy series.

SFAM said:

Hi DannyV, I’m still waiting to see BGC 2040 (just ordered it today in fact), but Chiaki Konaka is one of my favorite all-time writers. I LOVE his stuff (I’d add that he did Malice@Doll as well). I can’t wait!

And Bartaaa, BGC clearly has a rabid following. Just in looking at IMDB the most reviews for BGC are for a 10 star rating, so you’re clearly not alone in your sentiment. That we’re within 2 stars of each other is OK with me. Although, I have on occaision changed a review star rating based on popular sentiment or well structured points (Serial Experiments Lain, for instance), so this is always a possibility.

Bartaaa404 said:

Hey SFAM, if you liked BGC, just wait till you get BGC 2040 … your gonna’ be in for a real treat. ;)

SFAM said:

Hi Bartaaa, I can’t wait. It really looks pretty fun.

BTW, The screencaps on Page 2 are now up.

This is one of my favorite animes as of now, and because of this im a fan of Kenichi Sonoda work (Charactor Designer for BGC, Gall Force, Gunsmith Cats, Riding Bean).

Yea, i have seen the original 3 part OVA to AD Police Files, its very dark, but very good, kinda like Parasite Dolls in a way.

Ive got Mr. Sonodas artbook as well, good stuff.

SFAM said:

Hi Zeonic Freak, BGC is certainly great stuff. I’m going to be reviewing the rest of the series shows hopefully in the next month or so.

Zeonic Freak said:

Thats good, its only 8 episodes, it shouldnt take you too long. And if you get to AD Police check it out!

Bought the four-disc set on a Tuesday, finished with it on Wednesday. Quite a good series, though the English dub comes off as being a little…ameuterish…at times. Sounds a little too much like “Saturday morning cartoons” in some places.

Even so, an amazing series despite its age. I was worried that as the series was ‘cut-off’ the last episode would be a bit of a let down, but I found the whole series to be very enjoyable. A must see for everyone! :D

Hi Hugo, glad you liked it! Did you give the japanese language track a go?

I haven’t seen any mention of the incredibly short prequel OVA series ‘A.D. Police Files’ (not to be confused with the more recent TV series A.D. Police to Serve and Protect)
Granted it’s only 3 episodes, it’s setting is much darker, has a massive amount of action, and covers the philosophy of man and machine in a deeper manner than BGC. It’s by all means closer to Parasite Dolls.

Just another recommendation for review. ;)

I saw Bubblegum crash and didn’t liked, so I didn’t give Bubblegum crisis a chance. On the other hand, AD Police was fantastic. Very mature in the theme.

I enoyed both BGC 2032 and BGC 2040. I have not seen BGC Crash yet as it is hard to find, and when I do find I’m broke.

I liked the 2040 Knightsabers more however, though I liked the 2032 Boomers better in some ways. Namely the Combat Boomers and the Super-Boomers were great, and Largo was awesome.

My favorote Knight Saber design will always be Sylia. Though I just loved the 2040 version of Nanna. “Leon Poo”
