Multimedia 2000 Releases Bubblegum Crisis DVD MegaSeries: the Ultimate Anime Collection
September 22, 2000
Bubblegum Crisis MegaSeries includes DVD debut of Hurricane Live!, also sold individually.
SEATTLE September 22, 2000 Multimedia 2000 (www.m-2k.com) today announced the revamping of its phenomenally successful Bubblegum Crisis DVD line with the release of two new titles: Bubblegum Crisis Volume Four: Hurricane Live! and the Bubblegum Crisis MegaSeries. These new releases extend and collect the action-packed adventures of the Knight Sabers, four beautiful, high-tech mercenaries fighting a battle against corporate evil in post-apocalyptic MegaTokyo. The DVD remaster of this classic animated series has been a consistent best-seller, and the new titles are sure to bring continued success.
"We have always been proud of our close relationship with Bubblegum Crisis avid fans, and it was their many letters and phone calls which brought about these new titles," said Greg Hutcheson, VP New Business/Marketing of Multimedia 2000. "Right from our initial release the questions started coming in: Where was Hurricane Live? When will you release the series in standard Amaray packaging? Where was the leader of the team, Sylia Stingray? These two new titles will answer all of those questions and more."
Bubblegum Crisis Volume Four: Hurricane Live! is the DVD debut of this integral part of the Bubblegum Crisis series, collecting all thirteen music videos from the two original VHS tapes. Music is as much a part of Bubblegum Crisis as the action or animation, and in Hurricane Live! the hard-rocking sounds of Priss and the Replicants are accompanied by the hottest action sequences from the series, animation unavailable anywhere else, and rare live footage featuring the original voice actresses from the special "Tinsel City Rhapsody" concerts in Japan. The package features Knight Saber leader Sylia Stingray, meaning that each Knight Saber is now featured on her own individually sold, Amaray-sized Moviepak.
Having released the ultimate anime series on DVD, Multimedia 2000s next goal was to create the ultimate DVD anime collection, a goal they feel theyve reached with the Bubblegum Crisis MegaSeries. The MegaSeries takes all four Moviepaks, collecting the original eight episodes and thirteen music videos, and puts it all together in a gorgeous slipcase that will add sparkle to any home collection. At a fraction of the cost of the original VHS tapes and laserdiscs, this is the one collection no anime fan can afford to be without.
