If you are like me and watched movie version of Gunbuster 2 and really enjoyed it from start to the end, when I recommend you yo watch anime movie Space Battleship Yamato: Resurrection and wise versa. Although Yamato: Resurrection doesn't have that Gunbuster "charm" and is takes more serious approach both anime is about mankind survival and saving our mother Earth. Also both anime sometimes have that over the top feeling ,but I am not saying that is bad thing that what makes those anime both so great and interesting to watch.
In a far and distant future, men and women have become mortal enemies. Each living on seperate planets, an interstellar war is being fought between the two very different peoples.

Ryuuko Matoi is a fiery, feisty girl on a vengeful mission: she’ll find her father’s murderer at all costs, with only a giant red scissor blade as a clue to the villain’s whereabouts. Using the item as a weapon, she fights her way into the terrifying Honnouji Academy to track down a lead, unaware that the institute is brutally governed by a student council that’s anything but ordinary. Wielding special “Goku uniforms”, the group, led by president Satsuki, uses superpowers to keep the student body in check - but things are about to change now that Ryuuko’s in town!
Both anime are fueled with sheer amount of madness, followed by some really over-the-top action and larger than life charachters. There are some really cool, flashy visuals and pretty unique bizare world that doesn't much sense in either case. Pacing is fast and to the point, and I think that fans of one will most likely enjoy the other.
