Mine was betweemn Priss and Lina. I loved Priss's attitue. And Lina just seemed like the "normal" gal.

Hmm, well it just so happens that I like Sylia....one she has one heck of a dark past and she's also one of the coolest group mentors/founders I have ever seen in a "super-heroic" group...Plus I have a thing for blue/black hair LOL.

I can kind of relate to Sylia. I mean, I can't vouch for what happened to her father, but I do remember the first episode when she asked her dad when he was coming home. Back in 1986, I remember asking my mother when she would be coming home -- she was keeping a constant vigil on my father at the hospital; he was critically injured when a tree fell on him. She didn't come home for a month and a half, and I was left to play the surrogate mother for my little brother, which is exactly what Sylia did, when she put Mackie to bed.

Years later, Mackie is such a pervert... even to his own sister. My brother is the same way, too, whenever he sees me wearing a white T-shirt. *shakes head* Strange how things are kind of similar, isn't it?

I'd have to go for Priss... or one of the other three ;-) I mean it's kinda hard to choose, but yeah I think I'd have to go for Priss

They all had their own charms, Priss had her attitude, Nene was just cute, Linna was the "normal one", fussing over boyfriends, and Sylia was alwas so calm and collective.

My favourite has to be Priss though - especially in episodes 5-6 with the "Sexaroids" Anri and Sylvie (showing her more sensitive, protective side), and her little rebuttal with Leon:

Japanese: "Leon, forget it - I am not going to bed with you!" (I think that was what she said roughly.)
English: "Leon, give it up. I'm not licking your wounds for you..."

Classic. :-)

PRISS S. ASAGIRI ~ THE TOUGHEST, SEXIEST, & MOST POWERFUL OF THE KNIGHT SABERS!

Side Note:
The English dubb does her absolutely no justice. If you have any self respect, you will watch this anime in Japanese. I have had BGC on video for over a decade (bootleg in Japanese copied from Laser Disk), but I got the DVD set from Amazon.com. The DVD lets you switch channels from Japanese to English... The English version sucks. In "Moonlight Rambler", I like the way Priss lets out the primal scream, "Sylviiiiiiiie!". That scream still gives me chills! Has anyone else heard this dubbed? If it doesn't make you laugh, it will make you cry. I did both at the same time. The scream was sooooo weak! The Japanese actress evoked the sorrow of losing a friend, that makes the viewer want to shed a few tears. The American actress sounds like she stepped in dog $hit & she wants Sylvie to hand her a tissue! Oh, the horror!

Sorry for the long rant, but I just had to get this off of my chest. People do you feel me?

reply

I agree with you. The english dub sucked big time!!! I rather hear it in the original voice (japanese) and have the english subtitle run below.

reply

Yeah, the English dub was pretty bad - and they stuck almost religiously close to the original Japanese dialogue!

Anyhow, I liked Nene. Priss annoyed the Hell out of me (I liked her 2040 counterpart better).

reply

For me it's definitely Priss, then again I've always had a thing for hot female singers in leather. I absolutely love the song Konya Wa Hurricane as performed by Kinuko Oomori.
