Gunbuster: Aim for the Top (aka: ADTRW Does Something) (26)

1 Name: Mr VacBob!JqK7T7zan. 2005-04-24 21:18 ID:Heaven

Gunbuster is one of the old OVAs Gainax produced before going insane and making Evangelion. It contains:

  • shoujo
  • drama
  • giant robot piloting
  • space battles
  • physics
  • more physics
  • girls discussing physics and piloting giant robots into space battles

In the ADTRW spirit, it took eight months between the remastered DVD being ordered by Defiler and anyone actually finishing fansubbing it. I hope it won't take so long to do the second episode, but the physics babble (and the fifteen-kanji battle stance) is kind of hard.

After I posted that someone pointed out that I spelled "no one" and "Wozniak" wrong, so there are fixed versions at if you care about that sort of thing.

If anyone's interested, the battle stance is 無重進展積雲流八面鉄壁斜めせいがん
It's something like Freeform Octagonal Forward Skew Position or 8-face Slanted Weightless Iron Cloud Style.

DigitalPanic don't softsub :(
(episode 2 will be done sometime before forever, then I'll actually watch DP and see if they're as ridiculously perfectionist as I'm trying to be)

> Also posting to decry my outrage at someone

Let's keep all direct and outright flames at particular fansubbing groups itt:

Wow, I'd have thought the original Gunbuster would have been licensed by now.

10 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2005-05-10 01:50 ID:VMR0YlgP

It was licensed and de-licensed, you missed it

11 Name: Mr VacBob!JqK7T7zan. 2005-05-10 02:00 ID:WCbBX0js

It was licensed a very long time ago by US Renditions, who lost the license and stopped existing.

Afterwards it was licensed by Manga Entertainment, who released VHS tapes here and a crappy DVD in the UK.

The current status is unclear; I believe Manga has lost the license (although rumor suggests someone has Gunbuster and Diebuster and will release them when the second finishes), but Animesuki apparently doesn't since they don't list me.

Oh no, you don't! No drama-importing here, Sir!

If you want to troll and flame certain fansub groups or defend them or whatever, do it here:

The occasional sidejab will always be okay in any thread, but this furry-like proportions were just getting ridiculous.

Deleted Anonymous-san !Co7ArOTpLQ's post as well, just to be fair.

A character named Toren Smith! I know that the plural of "cannon" is "cannon"!

More Top 2! It's still not very good, but it's pretty.

Also, every player I tried had the audio out of sync by a second or four, but it fixed itself when I mkvmerged it. THANKS LUNAR

Synced fine here!

Also, I didn't like Nono all that much earlier, but when she's showing people up, she's awesome!

And Quatre-Vingt-Dix needs BREAST MISSILES.

english is not important. Only vague cultural relevance is important. blatant fifth element rip, but you get the idea.

25 Name: !WAHa.06x36 2005-10-18 12:04 ID:Heaven

I have no idea what the hell you're talking about.
