Priss - Bubblegum Crisis Story -
2032, MegaTokyo is recovering from a great earthquake that took place seven years ago. With the introduction of boomers, the Genom corporation has become a major power in the world,  Boomer technology is a combination of robotics, cybernetics and artificial intelligence in human form. Pioneered by Doctor Katsuhito Stingray who was killed in a lab accident shortly after initial development was completed. Genom continued work on his brainchild, and boomers are now an essential part of the worldwide manual labour and military hardware. Genom seems to be the saviour of the world but Genom's development of military boomers, and their continuing program of controlling the global economy and government poses a threat to the future of humanity.   Boomer related crimes are on the rise and new mechas seem to be involved each time. The AD police division is formed to curb these crimes but success come in form of The Knight Sabers, led by Sylia Stingray (The other members are Nene Romanova, who works as a computer operator for the AD Police, Linna Yamazaki, and Priss) fight these crimes for a price. bubblegum pic bubblegum crisis

Conclusion -
This ground-breaking eight episode OAV series features innovative character and mechanical designs by Sonoda Kenichi. Many consider this to be in the work of the cyberpunk genre. Bubblegum Crisis also features a great soundtrack.

The followup series... Bubblegum Crash begins in 2034. Crash was done by a different design team, and had a different voice actor for Priss. The hardsuit designs also changed dramatically, the boomers became much less intelligent, and Genom was pretty much absent from the plot. General consensus is that some people like it, and some hate it, but most seem to agree that it is inferior to the original.
