-===Miura Touru===

-AIC President 
- 
-Active behind the scenes from the genesis of OVA, 
-Mr. Touru was the shadowy force who launched 
-numerous hits out into the world. The projects that 
-he produced along with Artmic are now monumental 
-landmarks of the industry. Representative works 
-include Vampire Princess Miyu, Dai-undoo-kai,​ and 
-Tenchi Muyo! 
- 
-Miura: I am very proud of BGC which created a 
-great current of Japanese animation. 
- 
-Bubblegum Crisis was an original piece that was 
-created in a period when the times were leaning 
-toward the market called video animation. Looking 
-back to that time, original works like BGC were at 
-the time by no means rare. However, the story 
-development was uniquely that of Artmic, reflecting 
-the tastes of men like Aramaki-kun and 
-Kakinuma-kun. The design of the powered suits was 
-inevitable, given the staff and the development of 
-Japanese Animation at that time. 
- 
-What was expected in OVAs at that time was 
-something that was different from TV series. So, the 
-way we worked on the OVA was different from the 
-TV Anime production system. This was a 
-characteristic of the OVAs of that time, notjust 
-Bubble, in which various artists would showcase 
-their various story ideas within the framework of a 
-singular theme. As a result, more and more talented 
-people who were dissatisfied with TV moved into the 
-OVA world. 
- 
-What was hard was that, because BGC was an 
-original story, it took us a lot of time to create its 
-world. From the onset of planning to the release, it 
-took over a year. It was a work that originated with a 
-casual conversation about “let’s do an SF version of 
-“Hissatsu shioki nin” (“Sure Deathl”, a samurai 
-TVIMovie series similar to Shigoto-nin),​” and it was 
-not easy to build it up from there. Even seeing it 
-today it's up to date, and its level of detail is high. In 
-a way, I feel that it's a compilation of Artmic’s mecha 
-designs. 
- 
-It was a period when the entire industry’s — 
-including its talents — growth was skyrocketing,​ so I 
-could say that it was a work that was made at a very 
-good time. Oobari-kun, Gouda-kun, they all 
-accomplished things they really wanted to do in it. 
-When I look at their recent works, it is clear that 
-their style was well established in BGC, which lead 
-to their recent works. I feel that the times have 
-finally caught up to BGC, there are fans of it around 
-the world who find it precious; not many titles can 
-boast that. 
- 
-Technically,​ it was still quite immature, however, but 
-I think that it was a representative work of so-called 
-“Japanimation.” And I pride myself that for having 
-created one of seminal works in the genre. It was a 
-project with many deep memories for me, so I won’t 
-just let it end with memories alone. So I feel that it 
-would be great if you would continue cheering 
-Bubble on.
