With the introduction of boomers, the Genom corporation has become a major power in the

Genom continued work on his brainchild, and boomers are now an essential

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.

crimes for a price.
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...
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.
