Parasite Dolls (769 words)
PARASITE DOLLS is set in the BUBBLEGUM CRISIS universe, presumably the alternate one of BGC 2040.
The action quotient of PARASITE DOLLS is also high, which I found refreshing, and yet it combines that with the thoughtfulness (at a lower level) of the GHOST IN THE SHELL films.
PARASITE DOLLS is a near-perfect intermeshing of the two.
AnimeOnDVD.com >> Disc Reviews >> Parasite Dolls (2113 words)
After watching Parasite Dolls, the only conclusion I come to is that the best stories that are told within the various Bubblegum Crisis universes are these side stories that avoid the gimmicks and just tell stories.
Parasite Dolls is something that I found appealing for the same reasons I found the original AD Police OVA series so appealing; it's dark in its nature in a storyline where there's darkness in general but we follow the light characters like the Knight Sabers.
Parasite Dolls does the job by showing a different element of a world we've gotten familiar with over the years and takes you to the dark underbelly of it.
