From Bubblegum Crisis 7 Double Vision, Reika Chang aka Vision
Always liked Vision. Good work on the pic.
"Say Yes!" to this fine anime fan work. Sonoda proves once again that he has many ways of drawing attractive women.
I still have that song on my player.
Magnificent! One of their characters who I wish they had done more with ...
Well even this version might have done more if Bubble Gum Crash hadn't crashed.
There was a lot of stuff that got left on the shelf when Artmic joined the list of anime companies wrong-footed left by the Great Departure of animators to the video game industry. The BGC game books published by R. Talsorian back in the day show a lot of cool stuff. Vision as Knight Saber #5 would have been awesome!
I agree with you there. Not surprised with the mass-migration though. There is much more money to be had in the video game industry these days.
I saw it happen in my shiny-eyed n00b w33b fan days. In the space of a year of laser discs and TV trade tapes we went in terms of quality from Rhea Gall Force to Gall Force Earth One, and from Bubble Gum Crisis 8: Scoop Chase to Bubble Gum Crash One: Popsicle Stick-Neck Army. The animation for the Gall Force OVA was so bad due to newbie animators that Artmic put an official apology message on the LD jacket. (We had seen a trade tape version and thought there had been an error, and an unfinished version had been released instead. Nope!) Having the Crash-style Knight Sabers look like they shared dressing rooms with the Sailor Moon girls didn't help either. The TV shows for the season were quality whiplash! In video games though the new console & PC games showed a quantum jump in animation, art, and story. (Some of the writers must have gone over too, since many non-manga adapted OVA & TV anime abruptly went through some uninspired writing.)
They almost did
Who hoo!!! More BGC ladies!
A Vision in more ways than one. She's very beautiful.
