Bubblegum Crisis

When me and my brother were in our budding youth, we were granted a visit to the video shop. Excited by our find, we found this ~~anime~~ (amazing at the time) by the name of Bubblegum Crisis, and promptly asked to rent it.
When we watched it - two lines have been burned into both our memories forever (along with the overall traumatic experience of baby's first actual anime).
This big monster, groaning around the night time city as our heroines fly around in their super suits or space ship or whatever, screeching "FEEEEEEDD me more data!" and "When you die, I will have your data!!".

I really... I've searched and searched to find the correct episode, movie, whatever this belongs to but I really don't even know. I was hoping a somebody here could help me out? It's really make my day-week-month--YEAR if somebody could tell me which one this is from.
Obviously, around the time Pokemon and Dragon Ball Z were joining Cartoon Network so late 90s, though I get the impression Bubblegum Crisis is from the 80s? It was dubbed oddly, aside from this there was some sort of romance with a short blue haired chick and some guy and at the end she floated around in front of a pink/yellow bg all... Not very helpful, I'm counting on the iconic lines above are helpful.

As an expert on all things BGC... That was NOT Bubblegum Crisis.

But do not dispair! It was Bubblegum CRASH, the three episode sequel series. In fact, it was in the third and final episode of the entire BGC continuity.

Now, as to the rest of your entry. You are sort of correct. The first episode of Bubblegum Crisis came out in 1987. From there, the show sort of lurched forward through eight direct-to-video releases. It spawned one prequel series "AD Police Files" which are extremely different in tone, and the aforementioned Bubblegum Crash in 1991. The series was translated into English (subtitled VHS followed later by one of the WORST dubs in recorded history, now available on hybrid DVD) by a company called Animeigo.

Also of note, in the late 1990's, a joint venture between the Japanese copyright holders (AIC/Artmic) and the North American anime distribution company AD Vision begot "Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040" a TV series based on the same concepts, but a radically different storyline. It was released on DVD in North America by AD Vision, but that company has since gone up in smoke.

Seriously.. I'm in awe. You've completed this disjoint memory I've had for maybe a decade now.

Haha, definitely, I remember the monster's voice so perfectly.

Cheeky, but: Would you happen to know if I can watch this online anywhere?
