Will the Knight Sabers be equal to their greatest challenge?

Our Ranking

short review:

From anime point-of-view, "Bubblegum Crisis" is a cool cyberpunk series with many references to Ridley Scott's great "Blade Runner" movie. But the vampiric elements in this episode (Moonlight Rambler) are not enough to make it really satisfying for fans of the bloodsucker genre. If you like animes, you'll love "Bubblegum", if you watch it for Dracula-like story elements, this won't be your cup of tea!
