The saga of the Knight Sabers continues as the group tries to find out who or what is behind the recent string of robberies, murders, and Boomer malfunctions which are somehow related to the creation of an advanced artificial intelligence. Furthermore, it seems that the Knight Sabers may be breaking up.

Bubblegum Crash seems to get overlooked pretty often. The Crisis OVA and 2040 already seem obscure enough especially around here at MAL and then Crash is just, completely lost in it's own void. Kind of a shame because Crash is certainly worth seeing if you're a fan of the OVA and new series. My review for 2040 was probably too big, so I'll keep this one a little on the shorter side. It could be a good read along with this review though.

Crash is basically a direct continuation of the original OVA and it's completely obvious. The animation and everything in that aspect is the read more

Bubblegum Crash isn't a BAD series per se, but it is certainly inferior to its predecessor Bubblegum Crisis. Where as Crisis had a unique opening scene for every episode of the series as well as a unique outro, Crash uses a stock opening and a plain credits. The animation is overall less impressive than Crisis' fantastic artwork, the violence is toned down and there are continuity errors particularly in the second episode.

THAT ALL SAID - I enjoyed Crash a fair deal. No where near as much as Crisis, but it certainly is not awful. Continuity errors aside, each episode's story is fairly interesting and the read more

Bubblegum Crash had a lot of features that would make it a cool sequel to )one of) the Cyberpunk Epic(s) of the 80's, Bubblegum Crisis. It has a spetacular Opening, with great visuals and an awesome song. It had improved animation, whichi could only add for its awesomeness. But it lack one little very important thing: It lacked memory. It did not remember its own story. Ladies and Gentlemen, the Mother of all Trainwrecks is here. This is the sequel that contradicts its original story. I have never heard of something like this before. This thing here gave birth to my first read more

Spectacular piece of anime but totally messes up as a sequel to the original ova series! Bubblegum Crash continues the awesome formula of the original series: Blade Runner style setting, bombardment of 80s culture, brilliant colours, corporations running amok with technology and cute girls laying waste to berserk boomers and cool hardsuits. However, the continuity is messed up so bad you'd wonder if the whole group of writers just suddenly suffered from amnesia!

As standalone stories, the plot is standard, entertaining fare for retro cyberpunk anime. Cool fights happen, there's an overarching plot involving people trying to use boomers in a grand scheme to wreak havoc read more
