is Gunbuster the greatest OVA ever created?
I mean, it has literally everything you could ever want in an anime
>incredible production and direction
>compelling and relatable characters
>a well paced narrative that tugs at your heart strings
>space warfare and mechs
>an memorable 10/10 soundtrack
>perfect amount of sex appeal
>an ending that leaves perfect closure for the audience.

in fact, I can't think of many other series, manga, or movies that even come remotely close to it's mathematical perfection

No.

No, FLCL and Diebuster are better.

>>114609829
wrong, and double wrong

>>114609601
Sales say Unicorn.

>>114609601

Gunbuster and the R.O.D OVA are two of my favourites.

Golden Boy is pretty good too.

Confirmed for not watching.

Space Germans is the greatest anime ever created.

alright, trashy overdesigned mechs
all I gotta say m8

>well paced narrative
Nigger, this shit took forever to take off. That said, once it did, the ride was amazing. For a 6-episode OVA, taking half of the episodes to world-build and set everything up is pretty fucking bad pacing. Not saying that the whole production wasn't enjoyable and charming in its own way that works to keep one watching the whole way through, but for real, the action didn't really begin until over 50% of the series is over.

gee anon, you're such a fucking faggot.
ever think for a moment that the characters might actually be more important that stupid robots?

>ever think for a moment that the characters might actually be more important that stupid robots?
That's not how Super Robot shows work.
>>
>>114610711
no, that's why it is a deconstruction of the Real Robo genre
>>
>>114609601
>well paced

3 out of the 6 episodes was the main character being as much of a bitch as Shinji. The series had two good parts both involving the robot.

>>114610770
You're joking right? You have to be joking, there's no way you could be this stupid.

Was FLCL an ova?

It has nothing to do with a literary analysis method made up by a frenchman to piss off dumb literature critics.
>>
>>114610771
Have you heard the phrase "character development" before?

LoGH is a better OVA

Gunbuster is just eyecandy and a fun homage to the mecha genre.
>>
>>114609601
It's a masterpiece. I wouldn't say it's the single best OVA ever created because it doesn't need to be.
>>
>>114611139
Yes you idiot
>>
>>114611210
Yeah, and not all character development is good, anon. You do know that, right?
>>
>>114609829
This.
>>
Getter Robo is better/
>>
I loved Gunbuster, the ending was great but the best OVA for me is stil Rurouni Kenshin Tsuioku-hen. Can't get any better than that.
>>
>>114609829
>Diebuster
Isn't that just a modern take on Gunbuster? That makes it inherently worse.
>>
>>114611399
It's a sequel.

>>114611248
>Gunbuster is just eyecandy and a fun homage to the mecha genre.
you mean exactly what an OVA is supposed to be?

the whole idea of an OVA is for the staff go to crazy and do stuff you can't do in a TV series, with a budget of a movie, without being tied down by outside influences
>>
>>114611428
>LoGH
It's barely an OVA. You may as well just call it a TV series.
>>
>>114611521
But it is an OVA.
>>
>>114611399
It's a sequel with better visuals, pacing, animation, characters, action, and designs.
>>
>>114611521
It didn't originally air in a channel so it's an OVA.
>>
>>114611521
Do you not know what an OVA is?
>>
>>114609601
It's good but LoGH is the best OVA

The 3 first episodes are more of a parody than a genuine story. Then the 3 last are the real thing. It's like Gainax had a team meeting and went "fuck this, enough with this dumb parody. Now we're gonna show them how real shit gets". I think his u-turn gives the OVA an unusual charm.

And then Gainax surpassed themselves again with the last episode.

>>114611874
I watched Gunbuster a month ago, and holy shit that last episode.
>>
>>114611428
prequel, it take place between the 12,000 years Noriko is gone
>>
>>114612322
It's more of an inbetweenquel.

it's only an OVA in a name.

if someone says they want to watch an OVA, they want to watch something that is
1)short comparatively to TV series
2)high production value in regards to animation and music.
3)normally a self contained story.

LOGH doesn't fit a single one of those criteria.

also Giant Robo is the best OVA

>>114612742
It's an OVA by definition of the fucking word "OVA".
Technically it isn't, since it does have a source material.
>>
>>114612798
YES, it IS an OVA

HOWEVER, it is nothing like other OVAs, of which most share common traits that have come to be expected.

why is this such a difficult concept to grasp?
>>
>>114612911
Yes, but the fucking term OVA is very fucking broad.
Claiming that LoGH is only an OVA in name is like claiming that PSG is just chinese cartoons in name.
>>
No, Cyber City OEDO 808 and Giant Robo are the best I've seen. Gunbuster is a solid 6/10. Not great, but not bad either.
>>
>>114612992

It's not that broad, LoGH was distributed on LD and VHS and wasn't at first broadcast on TV, that makes it an OVA by any definition. Series length or number of years in production is irrelevant.
