Just finished gunbuster, does the sequel's plot live up to the original? More importantly, do the boobies?
>>
Boobies are okay, but action goes over the top like Gurren Lagann
>>
>>137650076
What that's a bad thing now
>>
>>137650076
The problem being...
>>
>>137650537
some people don't like that
>>
>>137650963
>>137650537
It's obnoxious and gets old faster than you can say the full name of Gurren Lagann.
>>
>>137651198
But some people do
>>
The plot isn't as avant garde since that tends to be Anno's style, but its overall more consistent and was more enjoyable for me personally.
And no the boobies aren't as nice.

I don't think the animation is as obnoxious and exaggerated as gurren Lagann though.
>>
>>137651495
>The plot isn't as avant garde
Would you really call it avant-garde though? The last episode being black and white was really artsy but nothing else really struck me as innovative
>>
>>137652081
I don't think I would label the entire show as avant garde, but it definitely felt more daring and inspired with the whole time travel and science thing. Diebuster didn't have any of that.
>>
>>137652235
but science boners were the best part of the show
>>
Just don't go in expecting Gunbuster 2. Let it be it's own thing.

When the plot starts to develop near the end, you'll be in for a wild ride with an EXTREMELY satisfying ending.
>>
>>137649864
No, It's shit.
>>
>>137649864
It does. But its also a very different show. Diebuster is good in ways Gunbuster isn't. They both have their flaws, but both of them more than make up from them in their own way.
>>
>>137652642
So just like the first one really
>>
>>137653241
feels more like FLCL than Gunbuster
>>
>>137653508
Honestly I'm not sure if I love or hate FLCL
>>
>>137649864

Kind of. I remember revisiting Diebuster a few years ago and being astonished at the production values for it. I just didn't remember it looking quite that good. The soundtrack is also phenomenal and glorious:

>>
really shows the difference between pre and post eva Gainax

I'm thinking of marathoning Gun and Diebuster in order one day (I watched Diebuster before Gunbuster and forgot all about the former).
>>
I like both but wish they were set in seperate universes. Gunbuster is better
>>
>>137654775
Not really. P&S was the point of no return. Post-Eva works like FLCL, Gurren Laggan or Diebuster are still 100% Gainax.
>>
>>137655153
I seperate Gainax's eras between pre-Eva, post-Eva, and dead

remember before Gainax died there were lots of people that hated all that Gainax made after Eva. Especially when Gun and Die buster got involved.

but it was like when Michael Jackson died. Black, White, he was still the king of pop.
>>
>>137651233
Except Diebuster is only 6 episodes long, compared to Gurren Lagann which dragged on for a full two cours.

OP if you like Gurren Lagann be aware that it's extremely derivative of Diebuster, so you'll see a lot of the same tropes and character archetypes in GL, except greatly condensed.
>>
>>137652081

The jiggly boobies were innovative.

You're god damn right
>>
>>137649864
The sequel does not live up to the original.
The OP is 10/10 though and the ending is good -for certain reasons-. Watch it only if you really love the original and want even the smallest bit of content that you can squeeze out of the casual trash known as Diebuster.
>>
>>137649864
It's literal moeshit after watching Gunbuster.

Not even close. Diebuster's characters are shallow, the story is generic, and the art quality is a big downgrade from the original. Watch it if you want, but it isn't worth it.
>>
>>137657528
the ending alone makes it worth it.


OP just watch and then just let us know if you liked it.

OP here, I'm gonna watch with average expectations. Speaking of gainax , how's NGE compared to gunbuster? I avoided it while getting into anime because it looks so heavy handed with its symbolism
>>
>>137657234
>>137657278
Kill yourself.
>>
>>137658918
you know those VNs with multiple endings?

well Eva is Gunbuster's bad end
>>
>>137658918
NGE is good but Gunbuster is better.
>>
>>137658918
The symbolism is a meme

the crosses and christian references don't mean anything, it's just there to look cool

all you need to know is that Eva's variation of Noriko gets dicked, HARD

the father is a dick
the mentor is a drunkard
the onee-sama is artificial
the foreign girl is just a bitch
and the one's funding it are the Illuminati
>>
>>137660051
Cool I guess? And also spoilers?
>>
>>137660272
only possible spoiler is the onee-chan one

everything is pretty established by the first ep (except the Illuminati one, if you are not paying attention closely/reading the supplementary material you'll never figure that out).
>>
>>137649864
nope
>>
>>137651198
who does?
>>
>>137663392
I dunno

but apparently they exist

>The plot isn't as avant garde
I dunno man, the director of Diebuster fucked with the pacing and narrative pretty hard in order to, I guess, "increase tension" or something. There are flashbacks everywhere and certain quotes, scenes, and dialogue in the beginning don't make sense until the trend or on a 2nd watch-through. It doesn't work toward the show's benefit in my opinion but on a research does make for a more satisfying show when you see how the pieces fit together.

Reminds me of FLCL in that sense. Fun the first time through, but it doesn't really click until the 2nd or 3rd watch

no the sequel is trash. what's worse is the tie in at the end is so forced it actually insults the memory of the original.

Sorry for being new/not alive yet when these were made, but are these series at all related to Gunbuster or helped inspire it? I remember reading that GB took inspiration from a number of sources, including a tennis anime.

>Fight! Iczer One is a 1983 sci-fi horror and yuri manga .... The story features strong body horror.
Sounds awesome already.
>>
>>137664839

They're related in that they're 80s OVAs featuring women piloting robots, and they're coming out on BD. People interested in Gunbuster should probably give these a shot, now especially since they'll be in HD.

Iczer's villains are even called Cthulhu.

OK! Checking out these older shows has been fun for me when I get the chance to.

Hope it won't be too hard to track down a download for the BDs. It's a little expensive, at $150.
