Musical tribute: Crisis


Bubblegum Crisis is an Anime ‘Cyberpunk’ series (“OVA”) which ran for 8 episodes. “OVA” referring to Original Video Animation which means so much that the series wasn’t made for television broadcast but instead was only released on video.

The series involves around a group of female mercenaries who call themselves the ‘Knight Sabers’ and their struggle against the oppression from the Genom corporation.

One of the group members, Priscilla “Priss” Asagiri, is a rock singer and has a band called The Replicants. As such the series contains a lot of musical scores, the best known being Konya wa Hurricane which was used in its entirety in the first episode. Many others were only partially used, but did find their way onto the original soundtrack (“OST”).

So without further ado, this week’s tribute is Ikari o Komete Hashire or in plain out English: Crisis.  Hope you’ll enjoy:
