Noriko Takaya

from Gunbuster, known in Japan as Aim for the Top! Gunbuster


I love that this girl cosplayed this character, as Gunbuster ranks as one of my all time favorite anime - it's hard to believe that it was released *22 years ago**. I still think that Gunbuster is one of the most engrossing and moving mecha anime releases ever. This series had it all - giant robots, massive space fleets, a seemingly unstoppable enemy, great music, and a really powerful story that had well-developed characters such as Noriko who matured over time into the strong character she becomes by the end of the series. Great stuff!
