Top O Nerae! Gunbuster DVD UK Edition (Edited)
Kiseki Films PAR61110
British release of Gunbuster on DVD which utilizes transfers from the
original US Renditions edition. Video quality is grainy, but sound quality
is okay. No effort has been put into remastering this DVD, as it is a
direct rip of the VHS edition. All six episodes are present, but episode
two has about 20 seconds of footage removed. Extras are offered, but
they are abysmal. Click the image to the left to see a larger picture.

Top O Nerae! Gunbuster DVD Hong Kong Bootleg
Anime Cartoon International DVD-008E
Chinese DVD edition of Gunbuster which has not been officially
licensed for sale by Gainax. This DVD is a rip of the original Emotion
laser disc set and includes the mock Bandai commercials. Video and
sound quality are on par with the laser discs. An English subtitled track
is included, but it is done so horribly it is barely watchable. Click the
image to the left to see a larger picture.

/Bandai BUDH-0104
This set is almost an exact carbon copy of the Japanese remastered
set, with a few minor exceptions as some of the bonuses did not make
it to this release. There was also some minor controversy among fans
regarding the removal of 90 seconds of music from episode 1 because
of possible copyright conflicts.
This set is now out of print in America.

North American DVD release of the Japanese theatrical film. Tells both
stories in a condensed format. The most notable thing about the film is
the fact that Gainax edited certain parts of

new dialogue from the original cast. Fans of both will love this film.

New Japanese release of the classic Gainax anime series featuring just
about everything listed in past releases. One note of interest is that on
the 5.1 stereo side Bandai used the exact audio channel used in the
North American release, in which the music had been changed. The
2.0 channel has the original audio intact.
