Anime Synopsis:

This is the anime series that introduced many people to anime. The futuristic series known as "Bubblegum Crisis". Before BGC2040, there was "Bubblegum Crisis" and then "Bubblegum Crash". If you are a BGC fan, this anime series is a must-have.


DVD EXTRAS:

Region 1 encoding (US and Canada only)
 Color, Animated
The complete eight-episode cyberpunk animated classic in one package and two bonus hard-rock music videos

KNOWN DVD SECRET(S): 

From the track listing for the "music videos" included on the third disk of the M2K BGC DVD collection, press the right arrow. If it works on your player as it did on mine, the cel art gallery will come up in a slideshow with the song "Victory" in the background.

Go to the track listing for the videos. Go to the credits icon on the right hand side of the screen and hit enter. While the credits are rolling, press enter again and it will go into a short video of the voice actresses for the Knight Sabers singing a song together. Submitted by Ryan Hobbs


DVD REVIEW:

One of the first anime series that I watched was "Bubblegum Crisis" and to hear it's release on DVD was joy. All 8 episodes on three DVD's.

The good news is that all episodes are in tact, the bad news is unlike the video and the LD's, they didn't include the Knightsaber concerts. Why???

Also, the packaging of the DVD is nothing great but you do get a two music videos and I'm too picky since I own the VHS and LD versions.

Otherwise for the cheap price for all 8 episodes on three DVD's, you can't beat that. Recommended for the hardcore anime fan.
