>Gurren Lagann was nothing more than a self-indulgent revival of 70s and 80s anime characteristics including drill arm robots like Getter Robo and Baratack, homage to Captain Harlock, Gunbuster's spirit of courage overcoming all obstacles, the passionate masculinity of St. Seiya and Otoko Juku, and the kinetic, highly detailed sci-fi animation of 80s sci-fi anime including Birth, Cool Cool Bye, and Harmageddon. Yet despite Gurren Lagann being just a revival of old anime concepts, it managed to strike a chord with contemporary American fans - many of whom hadn't even been born yet when some of what Gurren Lagann harkens back to originally appeared.

Hi there.

I, the Antispiral, will now be stickying this thread.


FOR ABSOLUTE DESPAIR.

I like how Gurren Lagann references Saint Seiya, and not Ideon.

Truly an anime_expert.

Where's that from?

It's too dumb to be a 4chan troll.

>many of whom hadn't even been born yet
Note: Unless they were born in Japan or one of the 4 european countries where Go Nagai animes aired, no one here actually grew up on stuff like getter robo back in the 70s because they WEREN'T EVEN LICENSED.
>>10103812
I am. After GL I've seen/read and enjoyed tons of older mecha series. Gunbuster, Diebuster, Getter Robo, Jeeg, GaoGaiGar, G Gundam and others.
>>10103880
They did reference Captain Harlock though. Imaishi seems to have a thing for that show (it was also seen in Abenobashi episode 3, which he directed)

Unless you lived in LA
Where it was very possible to watch series from Japan back in the 70s not long after they aired in Japan.

(Seriously, I had already seen Getter Robo, Gunbuster, etc. before GL started aired in Japan, and I'm only 24 years old.)
