Everyone who loves the phrase "hard work and guts" and doesn't live in Japan, prepare to get jealous:

The Gainax OVA Aim for the Top! Gunbuster is expecting a complete Blu-Ray re-release, complete with bonus footage, new commentary and more. All six episodes, including a remastered version of the famous black-and-white finale, are expected to hit in one boxset on February 24th next year.

Aim for the Top! Gunbuster, or known more simply as Gunbuster, is a six-episode 1988 sci-fi mecha series, headed by first-time director Hideaki Anno who would later director of Neon Genesis Evangelion. The story follows the story of a young girl named Noriko, who joins an elite space fleet to kill insect invaders, thanks to her skills in piloting humanities greatest weapon: the Gunbuster. Themes like "not giving up" and gaining what you want through "hard work and guts" are present in between intense action sequences and wonderfully detailed science fiction, which ultimately would be seen again in later Gainax works like Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann (albeit in a more extreme manner).

Aside from bonus footage and an extra DVD containing all sorts of goodies, the package also contains a 100-page colored booklet full of the history of Gunbuster. All of this will go for about 15,500 yen (or 13,500 yen without the booklet), but sadly there's no word on this reaching anywhere outside of Japan. Still, if you're not even the least bit excited for this, stop whatever you're doing, watch Gunbuster, then get pumped.

These Sengoku Basara 2 trailers are way too short

These 15-second commercials for the upcoming season of Sengoku Basara do little to quench my thirst,  but I suppose we'll just have to make due. They don't really provide any information, aside f...
