Third "Aim for the Top! - Gunbuster" Reportedly In Development - UPDATED

Report about news from Hiroyuki Yamaga out of German anime event Connichi

In 2013, Gainax co-founder and president Hiroyuki Yamaga was named as the director of a revived project in which the studio would produce a Blue Uru anime movie. Now, his name is connected to another project from a studio that has been fairly quiet in recent years. According to @Eldur_380, Yamaga said at German anime event Connichi that a third anime from the Aim for the Top! aka Gunbuster mech sci-fi series is in development. 

 

The series started as a 1988 OVA from Hideaki Anno, in which a sports parody about girls training to fight off alien invaders brought in more science/sci-fi concepts, then a 2004 sequel (streaming on Crunchyroll) celebrated the 20th anniversary of the studio. A movie edit was released in 2006.

 

More details are promised in an upcoming interview post.
