Hey everyone, lugiamania here taking over Tiffako's post with another catalog that just launched today, Symphogear G!

Like the other Symphogear series, Symphogear G will be available to Crunchyroll members worldwide except for Asia.


In a world where aliens known as "The Noise" threaten the earth, only one thing can protect the human race: the magical armor Symphogear. But in order to save their world, the Symphogear wearers will have to learn from the tragedies of the past.

* * * * *

Hey guys!!!
Fans of the early 2000s will be excited to hear that we've picked up the DearS and Gunbuster 2 !


The DearS 13 episode catalog will be available for streaming for Crunchyroll members starting at 3pm today in the US and Canada.



One year ago, an alien spacecraft crashed into Tokyo Bay. With no means to return, aliens obtain Japanese citizenship and begin a home-stay program with regular families and schools. They are given the name "DearS," meaning "beloved friend."

However, Takeya, an opinionated teen, doesn't trust the aliens one bit. But when Takeya encounters a mysterious girl who is cold, hungry, and wrapped only in a blanket, he takes pity on her.

As he brings her home to care for her, he finds that she is quite possibly one of the DearS. Add an alien cat-girl, an over-sexed teacher, and this DearS considers Takeya her master, life is beginning to become a little more than he can handle.

* * * * * * * * * * *

From the studio of that created Evangelion, Gainax's Gunbuster 2 comes to our show line up!

Gunbuster 2 will be available in the US and Canada starting today at 3pm pst. Premium member will be able to enjoy the full catalog while free members will have access to the first half of the series today and the second half next week.



In the future where space monsters invade the Sol System, 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. But reality is harsh, and she instead spends her days working at the diner near the spaceport. Her life changes the day she meets a real life "Topless" pilot named Lal'C. Neither realize that the future of humanity rests on both of them!

I really like Dears, the only problem I had with it was that it ended too soon

I personally enjoyed dears. If you ignore the perversion it can be tonight provoking. Though the perversion is pretty good as well.

Dears was ok for its time, nothing special, typical alien ecchi type stuff, kinda to love ru meets Monster Musume. I dont know anything about Gunbusters.

Gunbuster 2 (aka Top wo Nerae 2! Diebuster) is a series of 6, 30min+ OVA's released for Gainax's 20th anniversary back in 2004. It is a sequel to the 1988 Gunbuster OVA's (Top wo Nerae! Gunbuster), which was the directorial debut of Hideaki Anno (who later did NGE). In both these shows you see elements later incorporated into both Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann and Neon Genesis Evangelion.

They are both really good, and also quite different shows which really show the era the shows were made in. I'd definitely recommend watching Gunbuster first if you can; while not essential it really benefits the show in its latter parts with parallels being drawn between the shows. As an actual show, I feel Gunbuster is actually better. It is slower than todays shows but had a lot of character impact and address's the implication of the effect of Time Dilation on an individual similar to "Voices of a distant star"

Even so, Gunbuster 2 (Diebuster) is great to watch, and really pulls out all the stops with the fights. It barely feels old at all, and is a great piece of anime history in the context of NGE, FLCL and TTGL. And the show can definitely be understood without seeing Gunbuster (but you will miss out a bit and Gunbuster is great, why would you not watch it ? )

It's an okay slice of life type show. It has an okay plot as well. It's not bad.

PSA

For those of you who have no idea what "Gunbusters 2" is (I didn't), you might recognize it better under the name of Diebuster. It's a something of a direct sequel to the original 6-episode OVA series, Gunbuster, but you can watch Gunbusters 2/Diebuster first (although that's not generally recommended).

I've heard of Gunbuster and Gunbuster 2 (though "Diebuster/Gunbuster 2: Diebuster" is much more accurate), but this "Gunbusters / 2"? Please tell me this is another sequel in the works…

Gunbuster 2 is something of sequel to the classic Gunbuster (Hideaki Anno's first directorial work). It is not a requirement to have watched the latter first, but viewers of that title should find an extra layer of enjoyment to it and its references. It was directed by Kazuya Tsurumaki, who did FLCL and the Rebuild of Evangelion movies, was penned by Utena and Ouran's Yoji Enokido, and was part of GAINAX's 20th anniversary celebration. It's not wacky like FLCL, but it has a good balance of seriousness and quirks and is a very good series.


(EDIT: Looks like I was beaten to it twice above while writing this up… )
