** Likewise, Gunbuster's first launch is adapted from the pivotal battle of ''[[Manga/GetterRobo Getter Robo G]]'', where the machine rises out the ocean, [[BadassArmFold arms folded]], and decimates the enemy's forces.

** Likewise, Gunbuster's first launch is adapted from the pivotal battle of ''[[Manga/GetterRobo Getter Robo G]]'', where the machine rises out the ocean, [[BadassArmFold arms folded]], and decimates the enemy's forces.

* Hideaki Anno gave Gunbuster a single eye because he thought it was unique. However, he later decided it was a mistake because it didn't keep the robot recognizable when in shadows. This is why EVA-01 was drawn with two glowing, white eyes on a gloomy purple body.

!!Some Trivia Tropes applicable to the series:



* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: May no longer be available in Japan for the time being due to a [[RoleEndingMisdemeanor drug scandal]] involving the OP singer, Noriko Sakai.
* ScrewedByTheLawyers: This is perhaps why the OVA series has never been released overseas beyond the 1990s VHS and the 2007 DVD release, as it contains a "homage" that sounds extremely similar to the Chariots of Fire theme song. This got to the point where the 5.1x remix has it replaced.

Sakai, kept it out of print for a while. These days it's out of print in Japan just due to its age, though the NA release is available if you look around a bit.
* PlayingAgainstType: Creator/NorioWakamoto as Coach Ohta. Wakamoto hadn't actually ''been'' typecast yet, as this was still earlier in his career, but Ohta doesn't have ''any'' of the [[EvilIsHammy Villainous]] LargeHam that he has since become so known for. It helps that, naturally, he was also a lot younger when he played this role.
