If the campaign reaches US$130,000 and backers vote to include it, AnimEigo will master a third Blu-ray Disc. If the campaign reaches US$160,000 and backers vote to include it, AnimEigo will author a third Blu-ray Disc. AnimEigo founder Robert J. Woodhead explained that a third BD50 disc "'unlocks' a lot of other possibilities — more bits means more space for more content, and/or a higher bitrate for the OVAs themselves."
The campaign met its original US$75,000 goal last month. The "Ultimate Edition" of the eight-episode Bubblegum Crisis original video anime series includes the HD-recut Hurricane Live 2032/2033 Bubblegum Crisis animated music videos, and the upconverted live-action music video "The Holiday in Bali" on region-free BD50 Blu-Ray discs. The package will bundle five postcards from Megatokyo and a custom Commemorative Challenge Coin with supporter-assisted designs.
AnimEigo released Bubblegum Crisis in a DVD box set in 2004 and on remastered single DVDs in 2005.
