Gunbuster 2 has 44 tracks including Groovin’ Magic by ROUND TABLE featuring Nino as well as the ending theme “Hoshi Kuzu Namida” by ACKO–both songs are full versions.

No subtitles for Gunbuster Blu-ray Box Complete Edition

Gunbuster Blu-ray Box Complete EditionI’d buy this right now if the box set came with subtitles. I’d like to see the extra footage and bonus material but the lack of subtitling was the deal-breaker for me. I could get by though. I’ve seen it many times and could get the jist of what’s being said. I’m not sure if this Blu-ray will make it here given Bandai’s downsizing in the U.S. I’m hoping a Hong Kong version with subtitles will come about so I can buy it. The Box set comes with 3 discs including extra footage. I’ll be disappointed for now and hope it will be release here.

Gunbuster: Noriko drops the honorifics

Spoiler Alert!

In a climatic Gunbuster scene Noriko and Kazumi exchange heated words during battle. It’s the only time Noriko stands up to Kazumi who she idolizes. Noriko always addresses her as “onee-sama” (big sister) except during this scene. I didn’t realize Noriko drops the honorifics until I saw this scene without subtitles. It adds impact which you miss in the English version. Of course, a cool gattai scene and epic battle ensue showcasing Gunbuster’s fighting strength and weaponry.
