So, since school's back I probably won't be doing updates frequently even though I just started this blog. Being a programming student is really time consuming. Anyways, I thought of something some people might like. It will be kinda like a anime/manga of the day but instead it would be whenever I post. I would like to call it, anime/manga of the post. First I would like to start off with some entry level stuff and then work my way up. There will be a generic description of the anime or manga I recommend so if it sounds interesting, check it out.

Anime of the post:  Gunbuster a.k.a Top wo Neare!
In the very near future, a race of huge, insect like aliens is discovered traveling the galaxy. These aliens seem dedicated to the eradication of the human species as it takes its first steps away from the solar system, and they are getting closer and closer to Earth. Humanity has responded by developing spacegoing battleships and giant fighting robots (original idea there). These robots are piloted by the best and brightest of Earth`s youth, picked from training schools around the world.

The story begins in the year 2023, not long after the first battles with the aliens, and centers on young Noriko Takaya. Although Noriko`s father was a famous Captain in the space fleet who was killed during one of the first battles of the war, her own talents as a pilot are questionable. Nonetheless, she has entered a training school. Through the series Noriko, joined by the beautiful and talented Kazumi Amano, will fight to overcome the trauma of war, the doubts of her peers, and her own lack of confidence.
It's a 6 episode OVA so you don't have much to lose going with this one. It's a classic.
