I don't like either one of them. People forget that other than the awesome fights, Gunbuster was a horrible shoujo school anime parody. Diebuster is OK by itself but it's too lolwacky for the serious plot as far as I'm concerned.
- Shitter OST - Was animated almost 2 decades after Gunbuster - Shit color schemes - Awful characters
Its basically a watered down superflous sequel to Gunbuster, which is why someone like you loves it. Less talking, less exposition, less coherent story; more action, less development (actually basically none), and mindless entertainment.
>>123533160 You aren't seriously going to try and argue that Diebuster wasn't largely a very simplified story in terms of coherence, dialogue, and atmosphere compared to Gunbuster.
As someone who likes both, Diebuster is very much a departure in terms of its presentation compared to the original series. Its really just a sequel in name only. They could remove Gunbuster 2 and retitle it to "Top Squadron" and it stand fine on its own. Diebuster is generally just light-hearted, little drama, and feels more like a straight up Super Robot inspired series focused on action and concessional gag humor.
There's a huge mood whiplash I know for a lot of people who go from watching Gunbuster to Diebuster. Its styled and set so dramatically differently, you feel it from the very start and it keeps that feeling on you till the very end.
>anime that actually had the soviet union set in the future >good
Gunbuster plot was bare bones friendship and mechas shit. Diebuster had some great twist that felt very natural in comparison. When some people talk about Diebuster being simplified, I can only imagine they are talking about the mecha and space details, which was minute. Outside of the details, the plot very well done. You always have this feeling that something isn't right and the show rewards that feeling by revealing another twist. A good plot will have you figure out the twist about a few minutes beforehand. Not to late making you confused and angry but not to long as to have the feeling of anticipation wasted. The pacing before the Titan reveal was great.
The only reason I can imagine someone would prefer Gunbuster is because they're an oldfag who was a kid when they first seen it or they prefer the shoujo esque tone of Gunbuster to the maniac tone of Diebuster. Or perhaps you watched the second one first and some of the plot twist didn't seem as interesting to you until you watched the first one where they all started to click.
