We have just received details about ADV Films’ plans to release a new DVD addition to one of the greatest anime series to come out of Japan, Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040.
In “Bubblegum Crisis: Tokyo 2040: Blood & Steel,” Tokyo becomes a killing field as a living wave of bio-organic metal sweeps through the city like the hands of a mad god! As Galatea’s power continues to grow, the Knight Sabers must join with the remnants of the A.D. Police in a desperate battle to stop the boomer onslaught. But will even their combined forces be enough when the boomers outnumber the humans by a million to one? An all-new series of HARDsuits with spectacularly advanced capabilities may be mankind’s only hope, but the new technology is untested and potentially lethal.
The DVD will be released on May 15 at a suggested retail price of $29.98 in its original Japanese version with English subtitles. The disc will also include the English and Spanish versions of the episodes “Moving Waves,” “We Built This City,” One of These Nights“ and ”Close to the Edge.”
