Above average - Gunbuster review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

I'm not a big anime expert, so I can only compare this to the western films and television I've seen, but it does compare favourably there.

This disc is actually 6 30 minute TV episodes strung into one. Because of this, there are some very unusual 'features' in the middle of the story explaining the fictional science of the gunbuster world. Skip them. Trust me.

That aside, the story is involved and engaging. The main charcter can be a bit pathetic at times, but at least she is a coherent well crafted individual. The time warping effects of their technology also produce really interesting scenes which are handled well and add a lot of depth to the story.
