Synopsis:

One year has passed since the Crisis. People have come to believe that peace has been restored, but they were wrong - violence strikes the neighborhood once more and it all seems like a bad case of déja vu: the Boomers are back. But this time, there's something strange about the crime wave - highly advanced computer components are disappearing at the same time. The question is, who is the puppet master behind all this, what does he want, and what is his purpose?

Appleseed

Appleseed
  • OVA (1 ep x 67 min)
  • 1988

After the third world war, the organization known as the General Management Control Office constructed the city of Olympus – the only place where chaos and anarchy doesn’t hold sway. It seems unthinkable that terrorists are out to disrupt this pristine society, but the threat becomes very real to SWAT officers Deunan and Briareos when their squad mates are killed during a hostage situation. Bent on catching the lone escaped terrorist, they soon find themselves involved in a plot to undermine the whole existence of their Olympus.

The future cities in these two animes are similarly light and cheerful, but that's not going to slow down the action. Guns, robots and just the hint of moral dilemmas will keep you entertained in both Crash and Appleseed, just don't expect much more from either.

Bubblegum Crisis

Bubblegum Crisis

The year is 2032. Tokyo has been destroyed by a great earthquake and a new city, MegaTokyo, has risen from the ashes. Humans now live side-by-side with androids known as Boomers who perform many of the menial and laborious tasks that humans despise, but these artificial servants come with a price: they have a tendency to go haywire and attack those they were built to serve. The A.D. Police force was created to try and stop this menace, but its weapons can do little more than annoy the Boomers. Hope lies with the Knight Sabers, four young women with high-tech, armored suits and enough firepower to stop an army - but will it be enough to stop MegaTokyo's greatest threat?

It might seem a little lame to recommend another title from the same series, but in this case I feel it's justified. Crisis, despite being made first, is better animated, with a deeper, more mature plot, and is generally more entertaining. If you enjoyed Crash, you'll love it.

Cyber City Oedo 808

Cyber City Oedo 808

In the year 2808, criminals are no longer just wasting space in prison cells. The Cyber Police have turned to using these “patrons” by giving them a choice. Their sentence, or to work with them to catch other criminals and knock some years off their sentence. But getting off easy isn't, as each criminal is fitted with booby trapped collar that operates on a 24 hour cycle, stopped ONLY if they capture their intended targets. As time runs out on each case, someone's head must roll... the target's, or their own!

Vintage cyberpunk never gets too old to hard-core rabid fans :P!

Thought the graphical appeal and the scientific side could have gotten a tad rusty, they still have plot more complex than most modern show, not to mention they at least deserve to be watched as documents.

Metropolis

Metropolis
  • Movie (1 ep x 109 min)
  • 2001

Metropolis is a grand high-tech city-state populated by humans and robots alike. It is in these streets that Detective Shunsaku Ban and his sidekick Kenichi search for the rebel scientist Dr. Laughton who unbenounced to them, is developing a super android named Tima as a tool for the Duke of Metropolis. What starts out as a normal case turns into mayhem as the scientist is murdered, and the true plans of the Duke are finally revealed...

Both these animes have a conflict between humans and technology, especially artificial intelligence, at the heart of their stories. In particular parts of the second episode of Crash are incredibly similar to Metropolis in plot and message. However, the overall styles are rather different, with Crash being largely action orientated, and Metropolis far more sophisticated.

Sol Bianca - Movie 1

Sol Bianca - Movie 1
  • Movie (1 ep x 55 min)
  • 1990

Life is never dull for the crew of the Sol Bianca, a group of female pirates who plunder the stars for treasure and fame. On a routine ship raiding, the women run across a boy named Rim, who possesses the knowledge of a great treasure located in his homeworld. Unable to resist, the crew is about to become involved in a dangerous adventure that may cost them their lives!

So, the girl-team genre in anime is not exactly a small one, but Sol Bianca and Bubblegum Crash! share not only the familiar competitive sisters kinda dynamic, but also remarkably similar powersuits. Though the settings are rather different, both are rather dark futures, but the heroines still find plenty of time to laze around in luxury. If you enjoyed the action and hint of a story, the other will entertain as well.
