The science lessons are short "omake" bonus features originally present on the first two volumes. Each short lasts around two minutes, and stars super deformed versions of Noriko, Kazumi and the Coach explaining the various scientific aspects of the series.

Chibis jumping up and down, talking about hard core scientific facts is the last thing to expect..if this wasn't Anno's work.

This little extra paves the way nicely for the series both for factual and fictional background. It's a clever way to keep the series tidy of unending explanations and surely saves space in its short running time.

These short episodes came with the original videos and star Amano and Noriko as they educate the viewer on the science and history of their universe. Episodes are devoted to the science behind warping, the Space Monsters, and other topics with the average two minute running time utilized well. The scientific explanations can get surprisingly dense, but following them isn't exactly rewarding as some or all of what it says is going to be fictional. Still, the care that has gone into these explanations is admirable and makes the Gunbuster world more respectable. Hideaki Anno would go on to combine super robot and real robot read more
