Just saw Bubblegum Crisis with several friends and was somewhat... dissapointed. It wasn't bad as such, but I'm not sure I really liked it. I was wondering if anyone has seen the origional and if its worth watching.

What really ruined 2040 for me was the fact that one of my friends made some comment about the blonde hacker women getting turned into General Grievious and running amok. After that was all down hill.

If you watch the original you will have a better under standing and thatís what made me a fan the series.

I have to agree with the other posters. The original was better. The hacker woman's name is Nene btw and the character is somewhat less annoying in the original and cuter. The image of her being transformed into General Greivous is rather disturbing though, especially seeing how Greivous was essentially an evil Jar Jar. ((Shudders)) Wierd.....

I assume 2040 is a remake of the original, but so far I find remakes to be of lesser quality. Now not all, but most. I know I would have no problem recommending the original. But the original does have a different animation style to it. From what I can tell, just looking at the covers, the girls are bustier in the original, stuff like that.

Plus with the original mini-series they had an sequel called Bubblegum Crash.

Thanks for your input everyone.

Merc-youre right it was strange. The mental image of Nene being turned into General Grievous is what ruined it for me.

Although having finally watched the original, I can say it is better than 2040.

As for the recurring Star Wars related image; I still dislike the character (from both verions) and for some reason can't get the image of Nene being transformed into General Greivous still lingers. Although I do think it would have been a cool plot twist if either priss or sylia were captured by Genom (wow, I actually remembered the name) and turned into cyborg overlords.

Cyborg Overlords? All I recall were the Boomers. Were these Cyborg Overlords in the 2040?

Towards the end of 2040 they got kind of rightous. I don't wish to reveal too much, but one character/boomer in particular seemed to be gunning for overlord status (ie world domination/conquest).
