A young girl named Nono has left her home behind, to come alone to the big city. She has a grand dream of becoming a space pilot.

Then one day, while being harassed by one of the regular customers, a real-life "Topless" pilot named Lal'C comes to her aid.

Ratings & Reviews
I bought this item as a guest, but after my order came in, I decided to become an official member. I originally bought all 3 volumes when they were on sale, and with the pricing and shipping time, I don't think any other seller can compete! I've never watched the Gunbuster series before, and I was interested seeing the kinda stuff Gainax did before Trigger took the mantle so I appreciate the accessibility. In an aesthetic sense, I found to be a thrill to watch. As for how it is as a product, it, along with the rest, came in perfect condition, and I'm surprised it even came with one of those old school booklets with the character descriptions. It doesn't have a multitude of additional features, but that makes sense considering it's a more basic DVD of its time, and for what I paid, I can't complain. Overall, I'm really satisfied with my purchase and I'm looking forward to buying more!

Gunbuster is a classic mech show by the studio Gainax. Gunbuster 2 does not fail to disappoint. In typical Gainax fashion there are 6 episodes total in this show, but they will never bore you. This show also has a awesome character who rides a scooter and a talking cat!

The dvd's hold up pretty well even on larger screens. I mostly got this since it was cheap and the compositions are awesome. The animators and directors set up some great shots so I like to use it for reference.
Story is decent. Fan-service is present (take that as you will). Overall it serves the purpose I got it for so I enjoy it.
Overblown yet immensely entertaining Sci-Fi OVA from Gainax

Picked this up on a whim after seeing it so cheap in the clearance section. Bought all three volumes at once and plowed through them all in two days once they arrived. Gunbuster 2 (or Diebuster) is a sequel to the 1988 OVA Gunbuster directed by Hideaki Anno (yes, THAT Anno) and follows the adventures of a young girl named Nono who dreams of being a Topless pilot to a giant Mecha called a Gunbuster (not as pervy as it sounds... or is it?).
Gunbuster 2 is like a dry run for Gurren Lagann three years later, sharing a similar art style and boasting plenty of over-the-top Sci-Fi spectacles. Still, Gunbuster 2 succeeds thanks to likable characters and an interesting (if not exactly wholly understandable) plot. This is one that's definitely worth a go if you get the chance.
The DVD presentation is great with no issues in audio or video present. Subtitles also appear to be accurate, which is nice.
Oh, Gunbuster 2 works perfectly fine as a standalone without having seen the 1988 OVA.
Must See for Gainax and Trigger Fans

Came with a small booklet with art and interviews. Nothing was wrong with the disc.
I didn't really find out about this series until recently and I decided to buy the Diebuster dvds and they were just a joy to watch. If you want to see pretty much the origins of Gurren Lagann's and Studio Trigger's style, watch Diebuster and its predecessor, Gunbuster.
