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.
