Bubblegum Crisis: Tokyo 2040 Vol 5 : 4 of 5
This volume is one of the best of the series, and I've only got one more volume to go! These five episodes are pretty much non-stop action, starting with Nene (my favorite of the girls) being trapped inside AD Police headquarters with only a couple other cops, while tons of mad boomers swarm the building and trap them down (lots of scenes remind me of the intensity of Alien crawling through the Nostromo!). Galatea, the superior living machine lifeform, has caused boomers to fuse with just about anything metal, so cars and walls and even whole buildings can group together and become monster robots! The Knight Sabers get entirely new hard suits, this time made out of a oozing metal that hardens over them based on willpower (and has all sorts of weapons, of course). There are some great battles, plus a little emotion thrown in - Priss and Leon are definitely an item now. The Knight Sabers have a major victory over the Dragon Line, a huge power cable turned into a snake monster, but the last episode ends with a big cliffhanger - the Silky Doll (yes, that's the Knight Sabers' base) is under attack!
