Synopsis

While Gunbuster's final mission destroyed the space monsters' star system, the intergalactic war still continues. Earth's only hope lies in the hands of "TOPLESS," an elite mecha group with children possessing supernatural powers and new Buster Machines. Among their ranks is a rookie named Nono and the ace pilot Lal'C—whom Nono looks at as a "big sister." Together with their teammates Nicholas and Chiko, they must aim for the top and protect all of mankind from the wrath of the space monsters.

Many people will know the name of Hideaki Anno, in particular because of Neon Genesis Evangelion. His directorial debut though, was an OVA called Top wo Nerae (known as Gunbuster in the West), and whilst NGE has many, many advocates, I will admit to being one of the few who consider his debut work to be superior in almost every aspect. That said, I approached the sequel, Diebuster, with a degree of trepidation, in particular because the directorial reins had been handed over to Tsurumaki Kazuya, who also directed FLCL, NGE: Death & Rebirth, and the first two installments of the NGE remakes.

First off, DO NOT WATCH THIS UNTIL YOU HAVE SEEN THE FIRST SERIES. If you have seen Gunbuster, it will make your Diebuster experience 32783176983x10^21 times better.

Lets get down to it. Top wo Nerae! 2, or Diebuster as I prefer, is the indirect sequel to Top wo Nerae/Gunbuster. I enjoyed this short OVA substantially because how it presented itself was outstanding. Plus Nono is love.

Plot
The story follows a girl called Nono who wishes to be a "Topless," which is basically an ace mech pilot to put it simply. Instead of dragging the story out with pointless episodes and scenes you often see in 26+ shows, read more

Recommendations

Both have ridiculous, over the top fights with the same epic feel. They're also both made from the same company.
Same director, same style and the same over the top action. Both titles feature crazy mech designs and similiar humour.
