However, always a step ahead of them are the mysterious vigilantes known only to the public as the Knight Sabers.

Trivia

Set six to seven years after the original Bubblegum Crisis, but this series is quite different in its continuity with the original. The first few episodes deal with Lina Yamazaki searching for and joining the Knight Sabers, but in the original series, Lina was already an established member of the team. See more »

Goofs

In "One Of These Nights", Leon's weight trainer glove disappears from his hand in the close up of him showing Priss the video scan of the soldiers who are moving in to Tokyo to fight the boomer plague. See more »

The Best of the Best!
2 October 2007 | by Wingzero4uSee all my reviews

When I started watching 3 of the episodes of this series on the Action Channel,I have to say out of all the shows that I've seen that ADV released,this one is one of the best shows of all time. I had to see it again,and that's when I got my chance. I bought the entire box set of this series at Best Buy for my 20th Birthday. And I got to enjoy it,and see more of the episodes that I missed on Action Channel,and the same 3 episodes that I've seen. My favorite characters in this show are: Sylvia,Leon,and Nigel. The animation in this series was the best,and the hard suits were cool as well. But the show also has a great voice cast like:Chris Patton,Jason Douglas,Christine Auten,and Hillary Haag,and more. So if you like this show on Action Channel,then you have to own it on DVD. It's the best,and you will see what I mean.
