    Top wo Nerae 2! DIEBUSTER
    Gunbuster 2, also known as Diebuster, is a short but very powerful anime made by Gainax. Diebuster shares much of its spirit and themes with Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, which was made after it. It is a story about following your dreams, believing in yourself, and having the guts to never give up! Diebuster is a sequel of sorts to the original Gunbuster, but while having seen Gunbuster will enhance ...

    A sequel to a classic
    Gunbuster 2 (better known as Diebuster) takes a very unique approach to storytelling in a way that only Gainax can. It feels like what you get when you mix the ideas and overall plot structure of Gunbuster, the mecha designs of Evangelion, and the crazy style of FLCL into a blender. And by doing so is a spiritual predecessor to the ever popular Gurren Lagann.

    The first third of the show is ...

    The most fantastic and epic space anime I have ever seen!
    I began watching this anime on a note from Crunchyroll that is was available. The first episode hooked me as what were the "Topless" and the comedy from the unknown Nono. After the second episode, I realized than there was more to come, I was stunned and "Wow"ing every minute of the last episodes! You can read all my comments.

    I have seen science fiction movies since 1957 and anime since 1969 ...

    Give me more NONO!! ;-)
    I have watch the original GunBuster, FLCL and Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. All of them great series always keep them as my favorites. I think GunBuster 2 or also known as Die Buster this series holds its own. I have seen this series several times can get enough of It. I always want to see it went I need a laugh. I hope Gainax mades a continue of this short series.

  • Beautiful designs, ridiculously over the top action, and metaphorical message...
    All trademark Gainax back when. And awesome!
    I can hardly believe I missed this until now.
    So, it's well written, the art is clean, the message hits home even if the metaphor isn't grasped, and the action is smart.
    The only downside is rather rushed character growth, which is unusual for Gainax.

    Not really a sequel to Gunbuster
    The theme and setting has a very different feel from the original. The time dilation aspect of near light speed travel is almost completely overlooked, which was a major part of the original. A lot less explanation is given for many of the technologies used. Still enjoyable on its own, but really shouldn't be considered a sequel to Gunbuster.
