Lol, denial. She was really fucking weak and unenthusiastic before getting to control the Gunbuster, which turned her into a GAR badass in a matter of seconds. Brilliant character development there, Anno.
Getter Robo = "chosen one" cliche done right
Gunbuster = wish fulfillment for emo faggots>>11617646
They only added the coconut scene and the "I guess I'm nobody" line so thick-headed mongoloids (AKA the average /a/ poster) could get the (already painfully obvious) message. It was kind of like Mind Game where Nishi pretty much explained the whole point of the movie a the end.>>11617751>>11617747
She was an average high school girl who was given SPECIAL treatment, SPECIAL training and access to a SPECIAL mecha (which just happened to be MUCH EASIER TO CONTROL THAN THE SMALLER, WEAKER MECHS) all thanks to nepotism.
Try comparing her to Nono, who *willingly* joined the Topless and tried to improve her skills even though pretty much everyone thought of her as a nuisance and nothing more. They even lampshaded the "chosen one" cliche at the end.
