/a/


So I finished Gurren Lagann this morning, and I thought it was great, what does /a/nons think about it?
>>
Pretty stale and boring mecha anime.
>>
masterpiece
>>
>>100118460
H-How could you say such things
>>
i watched it when it aired and i don't remember any of it so it must be shit
>>
Unmemorable shonen whose glaring defaults are masked by a good amount of cliche machismo and idiotic fanservice. Will appeal to teenagers for whom it's the first taste of the medium.
>>
Fun show.
>>
>>100118378
Great. Trigger will never make a better anime.
>>
>>100118460
yeah, if you have shit taste
>>
it's pretty damn hype
>>
the best super robot show created
>>
>>100118555
what a shit opinion
you really should kill yourself
>>
>>100118625
Thanks for attempting to change my view.
>>
if you don´t like Gurren Lagann you have shit taste and are a shitposting faggot
>>
>>100118625
ignore them. People like him probably think they're the vain of anime and only shows like NNB can be good because they believe shows like it represent what true anime should be.
>>
>>100118378

Totally awesome, but the ending sucked.

>>100118695
>implying that was my intention

Just how overdefensive can you get?

As expected from an underage kid who's watched 10 shonen anime in his life.
>>
>>100118785
Oh god that ending simon will never be truly happy

Yet TTGL still ranks among your favorites? How does it feel knowing you watched all this time increasing your power level yet your taste remained in the gutter?

tell us some good anime in your defense anon.

Too popular so neo-/a/ hates it

The people here when it aired loved it
>>
>>100119024
I don't have to "defend" myself. I offered an honest criticism a show, if you can't handle it, prove me wrong or shut up. If you want a circlejerk, go on MAL and rate it 10.

holy shit just accept that people like you are nothing but a pathetic vocal minority
>>
First half was okay, second half was awful.

One of the most obnoxious and shittiest fanbases out of all anime.
>>
>>100119307
So why is it so hard for you to refute it?
If I can point out why a show is bad within 10 seconds, why can't you tell me why it's good just as simply?
>>
>>100119214
Not really
You mostly just threw in multiple insulting buzzwords in between your complaints
You also barely explained any of your points
2/10 not a convincing review
>>
>>100119214
>I don't have to "defend" myself.
You said it's bad though. Seeing as how you're such a sophisticated individual you must have refined taste and know good anime. So please tells us what they are.
>>
worst anime ever made, look at that awful final battle with robots destroying galaxies (how the fuck are they supposed to control a robot bigger than a fucking galaxy) and all that BELIEVE IN THE SPIRAL POWER and BELIEVES IN ME WHO BELIEVES IN YOU (glad that faggot died). anime for 10 years old who likes robots and explosions, therefore should be watching power rangers instead
>>
>>100119332
>Movie is much more up to par though.
Definitely. I've rewatched the first movie at least 6 times. And I watched the second one with a bunch of my friends and we all started pissing ourselves when we saw the end was changed from the original ending.
>>
>>100119482
>Power Rangers
>Not recomending Kamen Rider
>>
Probably one of the best anime ever created. But nowadays it's cool to hate on it because it's popular and being a hipster is an in thing now.
>>
>>100119465
Did you come from /v/ or something? Just because I wasn't particularly impressed by a shonen who's been done and done before, I'm suddenly supposedly a "sophisticated individual with refined taste"? Just because you don't like the bottom of the barrel doesn't mean you're suddenly a pseudo intellectual. Grow the fuck up. TTGL isn't the pinnacle of anime.

No, you're just an idiot who's trying to derail the topic at hand by inciting me to name anime I actually consider it good, so you can call them shit, as if that's relevant here.

it was entertaining alltogether. sometimes funny, yet nothing special and memorable. the sad moments weren't really affecting me that much, so you could say it wasn't portrait well. the action was better than i expected, so i think it was good. the idea and the story wasn't anything extraordinary. but let's be honest: is there any idea and / or story that wasn't already told?

/a/ thinks Nisekoi is the next savior of anime.
Why should you care what they think?

I like Nisekoi, but it's nothing special.
>>
So has /a/ grown out of it or do we have a whole other bunch of people browsing /a/ now?

I think Code Geass was the only other time /a/ had erupted with so many threads about the same show because man did /a/ love this show back when it aired.
>>
>>100122078
No, thinking it's anything special makes you a shounenfaggot with a low powerlevel.

I enjoyed it, but it's not the best thing ever.

TTGL is shonen done well.
>>
>>100122584
I think /a/ in general just browses threads out of boredom looking for an easy target.

It's not uncommon to say threads saying everything is a shit.

Just let them get it out of there system and they eventually move on to the next target.

Thankfully TTGL is a series that's as fun or more fun on the rewatch. You know what's coming but now you can see why certain things happen, and enjoy watching things unfold. On the first watch you're not sure about the direction of the show at times, and some story developments may seem bad.

At least this is what my subconscious wants me to believe.

Anyone feel this way?
