Shoujoboy's Top o Nerae! Gunbuster Ova Review

Top o Nerae! Gunbuster

Rated: 6

Gunbuster is a slightly above average show based on it's own merits. I can sit here and say it's because of shows like this that a new genre was created or maybe not created but improved upon due to it's existance, but then I would be giving unjust points to a show that entertains but falls short in the end. I do believe anyone who considers them hardcore enough of a fan of anime should take time to go back in time to see origins and inspirations of their current favorites. It may just give you more of an appreciation of what you are watching now.

Well that'll do for now. Stay tuned, the first disc of Gunbuster II is on it's way to my mailbox right now so expect a review on that in the near future. Let's see how Gunbuster changes after a more than 15 year hiatus.

Harakiri's Top o Nerae! Gunbuster Ova Review

Top o Nerae! Gunbuster

Rated: 8

This series is presented in an over the top and exagerrated manner that is very typical for Kazuya Tsurumaki who already created and directed FLCL (Furi Kuri) and who is responsible for the direction in Rebuild of Evangelion (theatrical series). Some scences defy scientific logic but are visually entertaining and impressing. If you regard Top wo Nerae 2 just an action series then the presentation would be flawless.
Unfortunately the over all pacing may be not balanced that well. With episode one to four heading twords an action laden climax, episode 5 seems rather slowly paced and a bit out of place because of its chilly and calm mood. Fortunately the final episode returns to the original over the top style.
