''[=GunBuster=]''; [[FanNickname or, as the fans call it]], ''[[{{Gainaxing}} BustGunner]]'', is a six-volume {{OAV}} from 1988 directed by Creator/HideakiAnno. The series really put Creator/StudioGainax on the map, and is fondly remembered by old school otaku. While it's a bit of a rough diamond, viewers today can still see why it stood out then, where it led Gainax, and where Gainax took the ideas they started in it. It's also considered somewhat of a spiritual predecessor to ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' and ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', as it contains a lot of elements that would later be used in those shows.

* GuiltFreeExterminationWar: The space monsters are seen as the galaxy's "immune system" that in turn sees humanity as a disease that must be wiped out. And with that knowledge, the humans know that there is [[FinalSolution no other choice but to wipe out the aliens for them to survive]].
* HotBlooded: Noriko Takaya may have been one of the first true examples of a female HotBlooded protagonist in giant robot history.

* HotBlooded: Noriko Takaya may have been one of the first true examples of a female HotBlooded protagonist in giant robot history. Not only that, she remains as one of the most HotBlooded mecha pilots in history, to the point where only [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann one]] in her own studio surpassing her.

''Top o Nerae!'' ("Aim for the Top"), the Japanese title, serves notice that the show will borrow from many sources and genres. It is a mashing-together of ''Film/TopGun'' and a famous Tennis Manga/Anime ''Ace o Nerae!'' (''Manga/AimForTheAce''), that eventually takes a left turn into ''TheForeverWar''. As might be expected from this, episode 1 opens at a girls' high school that trains HumongousMecha pilots to battle the alien monsters that destroyed the Luxion Fleet six years before.

At this point a ''Film/TopGun''/Sports-themed Mecha show [[CerebusSyndrome takes a left turn into]] ''TheForeverWar''. Admiral Takaya's flagship comes barreling through the solar system at near light-speed, and Noriko and Kazumi are chosen to intercept it. It's been years since the battle that wrecked the ship - but, thanks to time dilation, it's only been hours since then aboard the ship. Noriko runs through the ship, hoping to find her father, but jeopardizing their chances of getting off the ship in time.
