The central character is Noriko Takaya, daughter of the admiral in command of the lost fleet and one of the newest students. Despite having plenty of motivation, she is [[{{Dojikko}} clumsy]], not terribly mature, and completely lacking in self-confidence. Like all the students, she is in awe of OneeSama ("Big Sister") Kazumi Amano, the star pupil of their school -- especially after she defends Noriko from a group of bullies and gives her some advice (and a headband). Unfortunately, school becomes even harder after "Coach" Ohta, their new instructor, serves up TrainingFromHell for everyone. Oh, and Kazumi carries a torch for him, a big one.

* TimeDilationTimeDilation: A major plot point later in the series. In the final episode, alone, [[spoiler:Kazumi becomes fifteen years older during her stay on Earth while Noriko barely ages in comparison to her due to the effects of time dilation when travelling at FTL speeds.]]

''[=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.

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.
