The Knight Sabers are a group of women who dawn sleek hard-suits and fight as a kind of mercenary group against boomers (a kind of robot) and Genom corporation. In 2033 the Genom building hovers menacingly in the skyline of MegaTokyo, Sylia Stingray set up the Knight Sabers, a group of girls with backgrounds from Rock star to underage genius, not only to make money and continue her father's work, but also so that Boomer crimes could be solved. The police division meant to control these things, the AD Police, is totally incompetent and useless. If you can afford it, the Knight Sabers are on the case. The term Bubblegum Crisis refers to the situation of rouge boomers in the city, if the situation gets to out of control the city may go into chaos, hence, the bubble will pop.
