Yes, I was one of those people who was born after Gunbuster was made and just watched Gunbuster2 when it came out all shiny and flashy, ignoring the original. What a mistake that was. I just finished watching the last few moments of the OVA a minute ago, and I’m an emotional mess (let’s face it, was there ANYONE who didn’t bawl when the lights came on?). Sure, the random nudity freaked me out a bit, sure, the original Gunbuster didn’t have that great of a budget, but it was GOOD! A must watch for anyone who even remotely likes giant robots. Definitely.
If you have not watched these 2 OVAs, go NOW.
