Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040 Ultimate Collection is a six-disc DVD box set that includes all twenty-six episodes of the series. This set just takes the six individually released DVDs and bundles them into one package. The first and third discs in the set each contain five episodes, while the remaining four discs each contain four episodes.
Each DVD contains the DVD credits in the "Extras" menu. There is also at least one other extra included on each disc. The first disc contains a voice actor commentary on the fourth episode from the English dub voice actors for Priss and Linna. The second disc has three voice actor commentaries. The sixth episode has commentary from the English voices for Mackey and Nigel, the eighth episode has commentary from the English voices for Daley and Leon, and the ninth episode has commentary from the English voice for Nene. The second disc also includes character biographies, textless versions of the opening and closing credits, as well as previews for other ADV releases.
The third disc in the set has three voice actor commentaries. The eleventh episode has commentary from the English voice for Linna, the thirteenth episode has commentary for the English voice for Sylia, and the fourteenth episode has commentary from the English voices for Priss and Linna. The fourth disc has commentary on the sixteenth episode from the English voices for Sylia, Priss, Linna, and Nene. There is a gallery of concept art for the hardsuits (however, this feature is labeled as "Character Sketches"). "Vehicle Technology" has pictures and explanations for the mecha that appears in the series. There are voice actor profiles for the Japanese and English voice actors for Linna, Priss, Sylia, and Nene. The textless opening and closing are included, as well as ADV previews.
The fifth disc has a video interview with the English voice actors for Sylia, Priss, Linna, and Nene. However, the audio on this feature has a tendency to fade in and out, especially on the voice actor for Linna. A question is posted on the screen, and they cut in the answers from each of the voice actors. The sixth disc includes two voice actor audio commentaries. Episodes twenty-five and twenty-six both have commentary by the English voice actors for Sylia, Priss, Linna, and Nene. The textless opening and closing are included, as well as ADV previews.
In some respects, I was a little disappointed by the bonus features. However, if you are a fan of Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040, this set would be worth purchasing to have all of the episodes in one set, instead of purchasing each disc individually.
