Completed: Gunbuster

I’ll start off saying that this is a good show… i just didn’t like it… it deals with black holes which scare the shit out of me.

And it gets too fanservicy for my personal taste… and it’s unnecessary fan service.
One thing i noticed… cause i didn’t really focus on the plot at all…. was the fact that some characters reminded me of Macross… specifically the main girl looked like she had Minmei eyes… so for once i did a little research and came across this from wikipedia (i know it’s not the best place to get info but in this case i’m counting it)

The characters were originally designed by Haruhiko Mikimoto, who also did likewise on The Super Dimension Fortress Macross  (info from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gunbuster )
Part of my loves being able to make connections like that… it’s not a great skill but it gives you the satisfaction when you look it up and find out you’re right…

oh right… gunbester…. um…. i wont be seeing the second one…. everyone i’ve spoken to says it’s not as good as the first AND i couldn’t get into the first so yeah…. no point.

BUT if you like sci-fi and don’t mind some fan service AND enjoy 80’s cliches like montages and super dramatic things which really aren’t that dramatic…. this is the series for you… it’s almost a joke on the entire mech genre but it does some things really well… especially the time dilation thing… which i’ve only seen done in the anime Voices of a distant star.

so yeah…. good show… i hated it… if that makes sense…
