Gunbuster Available on ITVX

posted on by Andrew Osmond
Platform is now streaming the original 6-part OVA series directed by Hideaki Anno with subtitles

The original 6-part Gunbuster OAV series from 1988, directed by Hideaki Anno, is streaming on the ITVX website here. The series was spotted by Laura Watton on Twitter, who also notes that the series is not currently in the platform's collection of anime links here.

Although a dubbed version of the series was created in 2022 by Discotek, the version on ITVX is in Japanese with English subtitles. In the story, heroine Noriko Takaya's dream is to become a space pilot like her father, Admiral Yuzo Takaya. After entering Okinawa Girls Space Pilot High School, Noriko is handpicked by instructor Kouichiro Ohta as someone with great potential. She must then persuade everyone, especially herself, that she can indeed fulfill her goal and become an accomplished pilot despite being just an ordinary girl.
