Hardcore BGC Otakus - Make Yourselves Known!

OK, I just want to get a general idea of how many hardcore BGC fans are out there. I mean the absolute die-hard fans of the series. Who has ever purchased one or more of the original Bubblegum Crisis 2032 and/or Bubblegum Crash! soundtrack CDs off of an auction site? How about the B-Club special artbooks for both the original Crisis and Crash?

I am in the process of collecting these rare items, and so far I have the BGC 2032 original soundtracks 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, and Bubblegum Crash OSTs 1 and 2. I also have the 3-disc BGC complete vocal collection, the As Sekiria 2040 vocal album, and OSTs 1 and 2 of Tokyo 2040. Anyone else have these? Just want to know. My wallet hates me now, but such is the price of fandom.

You must be a pretty hardcore fan F_E. The only BGC stuff I've got is the taped 2040 eps from TV and a few pics on my HD. I'm still making up my mind about getting the 2040 DVDs, but that is on hold for a while because BUX is coming out here in mid-Jan.

I must say, your collection is freakin' huge. Much bigger than mine is... for now. Muahahahahaha! Anyways, what is Scrable (scramble?) Wars? I've heard of almost all the other stuff on your list, but not that. Is it a spin off show or something? I have no clue what it is, but I am a die-hard Kenichi Sonoda fan, and if it has content illustrated by him in it then I would be very interested in knowing more about it.

By the way, congratulations on being the stark raving otakus that you are. You can join me in the fandom loony bin! But seriously, WOW, you people have a helluva lot of BGC-related stuff. You rock!

You said it! Icantpickascreenname has a truly impressive list of stuff! By the time I got into anime they'd already done the DVD set for the OAV so I never went out to get the videos, although that would be cool to add to my collection at some point.

Scramble Wars is an awesome little show, you can find it in a compilation called super Defromed Double Feature, alongside The Ten Little Gall Force, another SD parody with the Gall Force girls unsurprisingly enough It rocks!

You should try to find the original sepreate videos. They are a great collectors item! But, I've been a collector since 1995, so it will be kind of hard to find some original stuff.

Me being an Otaku? That will rarely ever happen. Though thanks for the compliment.
