|The year is 2035. The place: MegaToyko, Japan. A city risen anew
from the destruction and chaos of the Second Great Kanto Earthquake ten years before.
But below the glittering surface of the city's skyline, there is a dark side, a side
the city's citizens are well aware of. A world where large, multi-national Corporations,
and not the state, hold the real power. And at the center of this new corporate feudalism
is the largest and most powerful of these - GENOM. Led by the mysterious Quincy, GENOM
seems bent on only one goal - complete control of the earth.
It is the era of the Boomer - machines that combine artificial
intelligence, biotechnology, and mechatronics to produce a synthetic life form. The Boomer has become the laborer of choice in menial tasks, robbing people of their jobs and futures. But the emergence of the Boomer has lead to another problem - that of Boomer rampages. Once started, these machines become nearly indestructible killers, wreaking havoc on anything in their path.
GENOM, as the force behind these Boomers, sees them as a way to complete their goal of global domination. Only one group has the ability to oppose GENOM - The Knight Sabers. Led by the daughter of the man who created the Boomer, this group of four
women used advanced Battlesuits to fight GENOM. But how long can four people hold
out against the might of an entire megacorporation?
Based on the 1980's Anime OVA series, Bubblegum Crisis and Bubblegum Crash!, (not the BGC2040 TV series) Bubblegum Crucible continues the story of the Knight Sabers. The Boomers are getting harder to kill, GENOM is continuing to expand its domination of the world, and other people are trying to deal their way into positions of power. The Knight Sabers need allies, and find a few others willing to help them. But will it be enough?
