Has anyone seen this anime? I haven't watched it in ages. It's what got me into Mechas

Gunbuster-1 is really OLD (to me) isn't that the one that gave us the phrase 'Gainax Bounce?'

Liked Gunbuster-2 (aka 'Diebuster') but I liked Nostromo's AMV of it ('Auriga') even better.

Gainaxing predates even that, originally occurring in the intro video for DAICON IV

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daicon_IV

the group DAICON Film later went on to become Gainax, and the video has been parodied in FLCL and several other works.

So Gainax Bounce, or Gainaxing, predates Gainax.

sorry its so low quality, but the other videos all have the DAICON III opening as well.
