I just watched the whole run of Gunbuster last night in one sitting (two actually, I left to go get comics) and it was amazing still. I hadn't seen it in probably 8 years or so and it is truly one of the finest animes of all time.
Why can't GAINAX make endings for all their shows?
I love the beginning where they were training in their robots doing pushups and jumping rope. Totally forgot about that.

I wish this was a show newbies watched, because it truly has all of the element I love about anime in one show
Pretty much a perfect anime. Though I didn't think there was any reason for her to rip her top off during the big dramatic ending to open the Gunbusters chest! If that was the case, shouldn't she have had to reaach inside and pull out her guts to take out the Gunbuster's whatever-you-call-it-drive?
Saw the first 2 eps. of Diebuster over the weekend. It's nothing at all like Gunbuster, but it's a damn fine show! It sorta reminded me of FLCL, but with the totally random wackyness toned way down, an actual plot added and lots of wink-nudge references to Gunbuster. And it felt like a Gainax show. I haven't seen a Gainax show that really felt like a Gainax show in a long while...
I wanna see the rest now. Damn you BVUSA & your circa-1993 prices on anime!
Man, I'm still waiting for my last order from TheRightStuf....
And I heard the storyline of Diebuster links in with Gunbuster in the later episodes (and especially in the Gunbuster vs. Diebuster movie). But the style is so different, I just have trouble thinking of them as the same thing...
