An Ode to Gunbuster
An Anime Classic Now Available on Blu-Ray
This will be short, but I wanted to share it with subscribers of the It’s the Pictures newsletter.
My newest article has been posted on Polygon.com and it’s on the classic anime, Gunbuster. Gunbuster has long been one of my favorite anime of all time and it was an absolute thrill to be able to write about it for Polygon. It was a huge inspiration for Neon Genesis Evangelion and has inspired countless other anime.
According to the web ranking site, SimilarWeb, Polygon received 40 million views in May (likely due to The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom), and that’s an audience I can’t often reach. Pleased as punch. A little inside baseball, the pitch for the article was sent a few months ago, and now it’s finally posted. A lot of the wait was because the article was going to be pegged with the release of Gunbuster on Blu-ray in April. Then Gunbuster was delayed for a month and thus the article had more opportunity for fine-tuning. A ton of research and time went into it and I hope you enjoy the article. Even if anime isn’t your thing, know that this was a long time coming.
