Worth watching? Is it as bad as /a/ says it is?
watch it. then you'll know.
It may change your life forever. Watch it if you dare.
All style, no substance.
Turn off your brain, and enjoy the pretty explosions.
Since when has /a/ ever seriously said it's bad? It's a favorite here. It's a good show, and definitely worth watching.
watch it NAO!!
People that like it and reasons
Kids: Colorful robot battles.
Teen otaku: It has hotblooded inspirational characters.
Adults: Can appreciate certain literary themes driving the story.
People that don't like it
Kids: Simon didn't get a happy ending.
Teen otaku: Too cool to like a popular show.
Adults: Believe its only for kids.
At least until it becomes mainstream.
/a/ doesn't think TTGL is bad, the trolls at /a/ think so but it's not like you should listen to them.
it will change your life.
You won't regret.
Its like going to a party, just when you are having some fun a giant black man graps you and sucks you dick, then spits your cum face then rapes you. Thats the show in a nut shell.
Is this like the only GL picture in existence or something? Does every fucking thread have to use it?
Thing's become a goddamn eyesore.
Good job OP you trolled all these people.
TENGA TOPAN GURRAN LAGAN WAS THE BEST SHOW OF 2007
Kids? How many children who like Gurren Lagann do you have regular contact with?
I wonder if this thread will turn out better than it did on daytime /a/. During the day it turned out with over 200 image replies in a massive troll/shitfest.
The main topic was how easy GL fags are to troll. Lets see if that proves correct in nighttime /a/ as well.
Oh it is worse than what /a/ says
Most of us never liked GL. This is the only related piece of artwork we have saved.
Lawyer here: It's a trap.
Quoted for truth.
>ITT the cancer that kills popular shows. Protip: Your 3rd grader troll-fu is futile. Gurren Lagann shall become the first mainstream show that is loved by all. Even after Gurren Lagann airs on TV, we'll still be fapping to the glory of Kamina.
If you're a true GL fag please hide and/or sage this thread. This thread is going to become a shitstorm.
Don't watch GL. Everyone says it is so deep and has so much literary elements, and even wrote some xbawks hueg copypasta about it, but it really is that good, or deep, and the characters arent that original.
Also. SHITTY MECHA DESIGNS ARE SHITTY.
Gurren-Lagann is the best thing sliced bread.
It is full of symbolism, philosphy, ideals and strong message about moving forward.
The concept of evolution is very strong in Gurren-Lagann, you must move forward, but you will destroy everything by doing so, will you do it?
The animation is superb, 22000 frames per episode is really serious. It's like watching five shows at the same time.
The characters are perfect. Kamina, Simon, Nia, Yoko, theu are more than chracters they are live people.
Gurren-Lagann is the anime that will define anime for centuries to come, believe it!
Watch it, it's worth it
lol I meant that it ISN'T that original and whatever. Cant type...too drunk.
it's one of the first pics on google image search
It's worse. /a/ is far too lenient on things, we've gotten too nice.
Best Anime of 2007, regardless of what anyone says.
It reminds me of naruto.
ITT: GL fags can't handle hearing about the many flaws of their favorite show so they run away, and tell their comrades to run away as well.
oh fuck that got translated? dammit i can't remember the title
The whole show screams pretentious gainax douchebagary. After going through Evangelion and FLCL it's starting to get a little old. I gave up on the show after the fifth episode.
The op is a butthurt Lucky Star troll who keeps making these threads with the same opening pic.
He's spamming GL because he wants it to become hated like Haruhi and Lucky Star.
Protip: GL will always be loved on /a/.
first 14th episodes = generic shounen crap
last episodes = quite good
i liked the message and the vibe of the anime, but it didn't fullfil my expectations
wow, that certainly is the way its looking right now. More and more people are speaking out against GL everyday.
Have some GRIN LOGIN RAGE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAAOQHhoyzA
Greatest work ever produced by mankind... at least until it gets dubbed and thrown onto adult swim.
GL was the best animu of 07. It's not perfect, but it most certainly is better than most of the shows that /a/ recommended for me.
>at least until it gets dubbed and thrown onto adult swim.
That would make me so happy.
GL on Adult Swim. Fuck yeah.
but the cosplaying weeaboos and the discussions on gaia online!
Doesn't matter. The important part is that tons of people will enjoy it.
There are probably already plenty of discussions about it on Gaia Online, and there are plenty of cosplays for it from both Asians and crackers.
ITT same 3 GL fags over and over
Can they air it on adult swim?
What about Code Geass and all of its ecchi glory
that already happens.
online fandom will not change too much from where it is now.
GL, Death Note, and Code Geass are the only shows that /a/ recommended for me that was good.
I dunno, Cirno. Letting people with overloaded power levels watch good anime can be disastrous.
Usually people just take a vague complaint and exaggerate it.
I liked it.
fucking Bleach is aired on adult swim. so mature. GL would be R rated due to all the tits.
GL SUCKS U GUYS LIED TO ME
Huhhhh. Nighttime /a/ is really is harder to troll. In daytime /a/, this would have caused a massive shitstorm in itself.
Yeah but who cares? I don't. I'll still watch and enjoy it even if thousands of stupid people like it. They have no bearing on me.
The more people that see it, the better. A lot of the titles on my favorites list aren't exactly accessible, so unfortunately, they'll never be popular.
I wouldn't even call it vague. Their troll-fu is very weak. If I was to make a guess I'd say it was the LS fans.
Hooray for Cirno.
This "Is GL good?" shit is so god damn stupid and I wish they'd start deleting it because it's always a troll.
Their troll fu may be weak, but GL fags troll resistance is unbelievably low most of the time. Get some troll resist gear guys. Actually, looks you like have already, since you guys aren't getting nearly as trolled as during the daytime.
It's always a good thing to let people with overloaded powerlevels watch genuinely good anime like GL, Only Yesterday, and Mind Game.
To further their evolution?
We recognize them as trolls, but I'm always up for discussing one of my favorite shows.
You've seen Noein, yes?
Daytime = moar teenage fans online
We adults are not so easily fooled.
If you let other fans or something ruin your enjoyment of a show, you are fucking retarded.
I enjoyed GL from beginning to end. One of the best of 2007, and I am usually not a fan of action stuff.
I love that doujin. The Yoko milk farm scene was excellent.
You weren't her during the thread earlier today were you? Man you should of seen it. The trolls were shit as always, but the GL fags were taking the bait soooo bad. Had over 200 replies. I just posted something like the post timeskip world is very generic(which I do believe) and they went berserk.
people bitched when FLCL was aired on adult swim
The people want Inuyasha, naruto, and Bleach on there
HE'S A SHARK SUCK HIS DICK
Yeah. Only once, though. I should watch it a second time.
I'm in the middle of watching Mahou Shoujo Tai Arusu, so I'll watch it again when I'm done.
Fans of my show can greatly reduce the amount of fun I have watching it. If they fuck up.
it's on /d/
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I actually LIKE GL(specially the first half) but I troll it for the lulz.
Why? Unless you are watching it in the room with them, I don't see why it would matter.
Victim Girls 4
I don't know how anyone lets shitty fanbases affect their enjoyment of a show. Fanbases are always shitty, there's nothing you can do.
but I like both.
>which I do believe
If I could get a serious response for a moment. Why?
The art direction was downright gorgeous at times, especially at night when the Mugann first appeared, and I don't believe there has been anything quite like this world before - So I have no idea how you call it Generic.
They basically stole Teppelin and made it into Kamina city, just like they stole the Ganmen and made the Gurren-Lagann. That's pretty unique to me. Even thinking about it makes me happy.
We need to educate the GL fanbase. We need to give them the anti-troll-fu armor. Otherwise GL will become like all the other popular shows on /a/.
I'll leave this mission to you Cirno.
I bite trollbait more than anyone else here, I'm sure.
The only way to defeat a troll is to ignore it. They're like Freddy Krueger.
Kanon > GL
The only way to defeat a troll is to troll along with them or troll backwards. The latter is harder.
Ignoring works only if everyone does it, which never happens. Like voting.
I'm on it!
Yes, I wrote an essay about this, even if the second half was bullshit designed completely to generate responses.
There has to be a moderate amount of defending just so the status quo doesnt change. You can't ignore trolls.
in b4 that pic of anon trolling anon
It's not as bad when you respond with fairly decently-constructed arguments. Trolls can only take so much and sometimes a respectable person who disagrees will come in and engage in debate in a fairly civilized manner. Happened to me a couple of times in the past, and yes, in /a/.
We need to tell the GL fans to hide and/or sage the troll threads. This thread for example is a perfect example of a GL troll attempt. While it may seem small to us, the younger, less experienced, GL fans will be trolled by it. In b4 elitist.
there are far less trolls here than usual
you guys make me sad
why don't you try directing all that passion into something a bit more useful
Kittan died to save the 2nd half.
Don't dishonor his name by dissing it.
Gurren Lagann - It does a body good
Kittan is alright. But saying he's more awesome than Kamina? Please.
But Kamina died to pay for our sins.
GL made me a true men
>why don't you try directing all that passion into something a bit more useful
I am a writer. But I have zero motivation, as you can see from the profile.
Too bad /a/ is atheist.
Holy shit. Gurren-Lagann cloned you.
Wow, excellent. That pic speaks a thousand words.
Did you make that yourself?
/r/ing said essay if that wasn't just a joke.
Happy ending is happy
The essay itself was a joke, especially the "Stop trolling and make /a/ a better place" part. There were plenty of honest opinions in there, as well as facts though.
Eewww. You view /a/ through a green tint?
How to kill a beloved show:
1.Spam it until everybody is sick and tired of it. You can do this by re-posting the same pic over and over again. Kinda like what the op is doing.
2.Belittle and/or undermine the shows userbase by claiming that the show is hated. Earlier today one of the LS trolls kept saying GL has become equally hated to Lucky Star. This of course is not true (thread related). Just count the positive replies in this thread and see for yourself.
3.Put the show on TV. Once a beloved show airs on TV it becomes mainstream. The original cult fanbase starts to bawww. Resulting in the newer fanbase bawwwing. Which always results in the show becoming hated (e.g Naruto, Haruhi, and Lucky Star).
Will GL become the first popular show that was loved on /a/. Only time will tell.
Wow, your writing skills is beyond mines.
>little to know difference
Why would you post a screenshot that showcases such an embarrassing typo? I can't focus on the rest of your arguments because I'm still laughing a "little to know."
Your social life should be off the chart, you have a huge harem of bitches on the Internet.
I corrected it in the actual screenshot. No one's perfect.
>I am a writer.
Is that another way of saying that you enjoy writing long winded posts in forums?
You're 15 pounds more heavier then me. You're starting to kill my fantasies. I guess I'll have to be the girl in the relationship.
I don't think it will ever make it to TV, to be honest. Cartoon Network is really the only channel that matters, and I don't see it happening.
I want it to happen though, but ADV... well. Pic related.
