Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040 - 1: Can't Buy a Thrill

Title:Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040
Episode:1: Can't Buy a Thrill
Small town girl Linna has just arrived in the newly rebuilt Tokyo, (or, as it's now called, "Megalocity") and is awed. However, she finds her job as an ordinary office worker to be less than it's cracked up to be. What really intrigues her are the fabulous stories she's heard about the legendary "Knight Sabers".
This episode does a good job of explaining the basic premise of the series, largely as a result of offhand remarks made by people. Maybe I automatically prefer the version I've seen first, but there seemed to be a lack of the "style" I'm used to from the original BGC. But this is only the first episode of BGC2040 after all, and Linna has probably already gotten more charachter development than she did in the entire OVA series!
