What is up with the different Japanese dubs here?
Why is this anime praised so much? It was fucking terrible, literally the only good things about it were the details made to make earth more realistic, and the visuals.
The story was weak as all hell and timeskipped far too much without building any of the character relationships to any meaningful degree. Hell, everything about their behaviour seemed far too spontaneous since there was virtually no buildup for anything.
You can get your hopes up; Diebuster's actually pretty damn good in its own right. Not as good as Gunbuster, but still great.
Just don't make >>13323803's mistake. Don't go in expecting Gunbuster 2, and you should enjoy it just fine.
The BDs do have the original audio, but if you want to torrent the BD release that actually includes it, get EG's release. The Revo release omits the original audio for whatever reason.
Good argument. Seriously, what about Gunbuster was actually good? The only things I can think of were when she finally got in the Gunbuster, but that was preceeded by constant bitching to the point where it felt more like a "fucking finally" moment rather than something that's actually good on it's own. The other one would be when they combined, which honestly had lost all value when the other girl made the entire situation basically lose value through implying that her relationship with Coach, which I remind you was barely expanded upon at all, somehow was worth even a moment of hesitation in the face of saving billions of people.
The character development was shit, the relationships were shit, the story timeskipped more times than it could handle, they introduced a character for the sole reason of killing him off and then spent time acting as if it had actually mattered, and they added more relationships than it could handle. This isn't just the problem of it being 6 episodes, 6 episodes would've been a fine length as long as it hadn't bloated itself with far more than it could reasonably develop to a level where it would carry weight.
I'm not complaining about being the minority, I'm asking what people even see in this show. I honestly have trouble coming up with anything positive beyond the few things in my first post. It's to the point where even the average seasonal show has more substance than this.
>they introduced a character for the sole reason of killing him off and then spent time acting as if it had actually mattered
I think that went over your head. Because that was the entire point of it. Yes, the romance stuff was annoying and down right forced on Coach's side, but the death of that guy was actually really cool and important from a space battle perspective. She never even saw the enemy, and also the new friend, doesn't even know how he died.
I prefer the original dub over the new dub. It's got more passion and shouting. Also makes Noriko and Oneesama more manly which is a problem I had when they did the Super Inazuma Kick in the new SRW game. Sounded too scripted and lifeless.
You clearly paid too much attention to the plot. The show was gratifying for the level of 80s cliche and epic moments. Noriko's character development may have been boring but I think it was pree well structured and follows a Rocky-like regiment.
>Ep 1 - Noriko learns to harness the bullying towards learning to fight
>Ep 2 - Noriko learns that she's insignificant compared to the greater scheme of things
>Ep 3 - Noriko experiences loss for the first time
>Ep 4 - Noriko decides to sacrifice herself for her friends so that people like Smith doesn't have to die
>Ep 5 - Noriko understands the importance of killing the space monsters and encourages Kasumi
>Ep 6 - There's no going back but Noriko becomes a selfless hero for humanity
Been a while since I've sat through Gunbuster back to back but that was the barebone character development for Noriko. If you compare that to Diebuster, Nono's character development seemed so much more confusing because the show had too many supporting cast members.
