The old school cyberpunk classic Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040 to be released on DVD November 29,2011 by FUNimation Entertainment. Unfortunately for most fans, there is no word about a Blu-ray version of the ‘90s TV anime series. (video trailer below)
Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040 is a classic adventure mecha shounen with key animation by Sushio (Berserk, Digimon Tamers, Kimi ni Todoke, Mushishi, One Piece, Sengoku Basara and many more). The story, for those of you who are not familiar with it, is about an earthquake-stricken Tokyo where Genom’s Boomers (a type of artificial lifeforms) are used to help rebuild the city. Some of those Boomers, though, are not very keen on being slaves and create chaos and menace. Lina Yamazaki goes to Tokyo to try and enter one of the special forces that fight such Boomers.
The good news is that FUNimation are releasing the 26 episode anime series on DVD for all the lovers of classic mecha stories.
