Bubblegum is about people with deficiencies, becoming a little happier just by being with one another. It will take place in a broadcast station and a hospital. The leading man is a doctor of Eastern medicine who runs his own practice. He's someone who thinks of his mother and the heroine before himself. The leading female is a radio PD — she's impatient and clumsy, and also carries some inner pain.

Bubblegum Crisis (Japanese: バブルガムクライシス, Hepburn: Baburugamu Kuraishisu) is a 1987 to 1991 cyberpunk original video animation (OVA) series produced by Youmex and animated by AIC and Artmic. The series was planned to run for 13 episodes, but was cut short to just 8. The series involves the adventures of the Knight Sabers, an all-female group of mercenaries who don powered exoskeletons and fight various problems, most frequently rogue robots. The success of the series spawned several sequel series.

Masaki Kajishima and Hiroki Hayashi, who both worked on the Bubblegum Crisis OAVs, cite the show as being the inspiration for their harem series Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki. In an interview with AIC, Hayashi described Bubblegum Crisis as “a pretty gloomy anime. Serious fighting, complicated human relationships, and dark Mega Tokyo.” They thought it would be fun to create some comedy episodes with ideas like the girls going to the hot springs, but it was rejected by the sponsors. He also said that there was a trend to have a bunch of characters of one gender and a single one of the other gender, and asked what if Mackey (Sylia's brother) was a main character, reversing the Bubblegum scenario. This idea then became the basis for Tenchi. Hayashi said that Mackey is “sort of” the original model for Tenchi. Kevin Siembieda's becoming aware of “Boomers” being already in use in this caused him to changed his planned name for the Rifts RPG which he had named after the “Boom Gun”-wielding power armor which was also renamed to Glitter Boy.
