HOLY FUCKING SHIT THIS SHOW AWESOME
I am so regretting not watching this the same time as everyone else.
This has got to be one of the best animus of all time. The art was great, the pacing extraordinary, I never had the urge to use the seek bar once. All of the characters were fleshed out and likable (yes, even Rossiu). Story was pretty original from what I can tell. Gainax didn't even did that their shitsux ends for this.
So now I have the urge to point towards the sky and say retarded inpirational stuff. Please help this anonpoke by posting any GL related material you have.
GLFag here and yet
>>the pacing extraordinary,
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!
One day... Perhaps soon, I will properly construct an extremely long copypasta defiling the name of GL 'officially' to accompany the bullshit of all these gay ass topics.
Anyway, in b4 or during some shitty image dump/shit fest/people getting trolled by OP.
eh? I don't understand.
Explain, don't just quote a bit of text and assume we know what you mean.
ha ha ha, no
I'm too lazy to troll or respond to your trolling, so here's Misty taking off her panties.
I'll go on record and declare Gurren-Lagann as anything but mindless, completely incomparable to GaoGaiGar or the like. The show is that of a strong opinion, one carried by an unflinching speech. The delivery of a multi-layered meaningful assertion is the ultimate objective, a carefully calculated achievement towards an "altered state of mind".
The narrative strips a media swallowed down by purposeless plot convulsion from unnecessary fluff and successfully intertwines in a concrete shape what is commonly recognized as separate: argument, theme and symbolism take a single. From the depths of nostalgia the forgotten but powerful voice of honest beliefs surfaces within a technique of representation built over naked, yet fundamental, ideas. In more than one way this essential notion behind the storytelling is deliberately old-fashioned yet actively forward-looking.
OMG SAUSE PLZ!!!!11!!1!one!
The only bad thing about GL is it made everything else shit. Also the Chouginga charge up episodes.
Oh man are you trolls never going to leave this series alone?
I'm too lazy to troll or respond to your trolling, so here's some objection ~desu.
Stagnation, mindless progress and the very nature of human "evolution"; with a manifest yet subtle use of imagery such an abstraction becomes core for the script. They're amazingly broad, basically limitless, yet due to their handling tangible enough to be substantial. Textually knitted into the actual writing without even resorting to term dropping; eloquently described through a seamless combination of visuals, dialogs and raw feelings.
Even from the very first episode, the core theme is unconcealed to the eyes; enclosed tightly into the premise behind Kamina's constant claims of a "burning youth" breaking through a "ceiling" towards an idealized heaven of freedom. The physical "ceiling" keeping Jeeha village in the underground is just allegoric of a limitation decided by "those that came before"; something that could be called a "youth chained by the foolishness of their ancestors" if you wanted to be dramatic.
>Story was pretty original
BIG QUESTIONS NEVER ANSWERED
What the hell happened to Kamina's pops? This he really just die there?
So who was the Kamina-like person in the first ep? Simon? a random Spiral who failed against Antis?
>HOLY FUCKING SHIT THIS SHOW AWESOME
That's all people need to say about Gurren-Lagann. It is the truest reaction to the show and we can move on now.
GL is not the best show ever made, not even one of the best.
>THIS SHOW AWESOME
I stopped reading there.
All questions relating to Gainax shows can be answered with one word: Gainax.
in b4 Cirno.
okay name me a series that has the same story
Gainax: The animated series
watch more anime.
My problem with this statement is that you people can never name something better.
Go on, i'll just shoot down your suggestions anyway.
Why does everyone say Gurren Lagann had go art? I thought it was medicore.
New Getter Robo: Badass men end up piloting a robot against bestial human-like monsters. This robot uses green energy that is later revealed to be related to human evolution. At the end of the series, a force comes around who thinks that humans should not have control of this energy because it will destroy the universe, and humans kill it. The main character then leaves the rest of the cast behind to do his own thing.
LMAO! It is funny cos its true!
1- Hanaukyo Maids/La Verite
2- Dirty Pair/DP Flash
3- Burn Up/W/Excess/Scramble
4- Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha/A's/StrikerS
5- Kiddy Grade
6- Mahou Tsukai Tai
7- Galaxy Angel/Z/3/4/Rune
8- CardCaptor Sakura
9- Najica Blitz Tactics
10- Stratos 4/S4 Advance
11- Agent AIKa/AIKa R-16
12- Magic Knight Rayearth
13- Tokyo Mew Mew
This, my explanation is more serious but it lacks the funny of this.
...all I can really agree with on that list is Nadesico.
better than GL??
5cm per Second
Boku no Pico (srsly)
EVERY FUCKING ANIME IN THE WORLD except naruto and bleach.
but yet still better than the fail that is GL
Not at all.
Jesus fucking christ, way to prove >>10148575 right.
so Gurren lagann is better than any anime in the lists? oh lord please save us
the whole point of that was a contrast to the ending, bitch
While TengenToppaGurrenLagann was pure awesome from start to end I'd still say that NeonGenesisEvangelion was bit better by overall.
TTGL's ending is really fucking awesome and no other anime series can take it to that level. It is like huge and massive end to really epic anime. TTGL has also massive soundtrack with lots of good tracks. (Ambient Techno, Classical, Rap, Pop and Rock tracks) I suggest people get it off somewhere.
FuriKuriFuliGuliBuliCuli (aka. FLCL) is awesome show too. Mostly made out of win-win situations and nice bass tracks.
Yes, yes it is.
Eva is better than GL.
GL=FLCL=DIEBUSTER=GAINAX=CRUISE CONTROL FOR EPIC FUCKING FAILURE
I thought that GL was the best thing ever, but then I watched other anime.
iz dis how u troll?
GL is dbz without namek. It's all just powerlevel bullshit.
So many GL trolls. Can't we just agree that many people really enjoyed the series and would put it on their top ten lists? (Even if some of them have barely watched more than ten series.)
Good animation and that's pretty much it.
Everything can be good with good animation.
Heh. Only butthurt bitches think GL is about powerlevels. YOUR FANBOY TEARS TASTE SO GOOD
Failure? Come on, you're not even trying.
You're all the most predictable people in the world.
I have watched tons of good stuff, but I have never actually seen anything I enjoyed more than Gurren-Lagann
My tastes are fairly ambigous. I don't have a favourite band, I don't have a favourite genre, or a movie, or a TV series, or a video game.
However, Gurren-Lagann stands out as being incredibly GOOD in almost everything it did, and I have never watched anything that give me such an overwhelmingly awesome feeling that G-L did.
It is the sort of show that can be called "The Best" by many people. Because although I have seen many anime, I can't think of anything that I ever liked more.
Saying something like Rozen Maiden is better than G-L is pure faggotry.
your post doesn't even make sense, the only fanboys here are you and all the other GL circle jerkers.
Keep them coming /a/, I got money riding on this thread.
less arguing and more GL related stuff plox
God you're dumb.
even G gundam and Gundam Wing were better than GL
you best be joking nigger
Jesus, you're a flaming homo.
>I have watched tons of good stuff
Haha. That's not what your mom thinks.
No, he just thinks shows like bleach and naruto are good
haha, that's what your gay lover thinks
I enjoyed The Law of Ueki, a shitty animated shounen parody with 51 episode, more than GL, GL is a one-watch anime, you watch it and forget about it, because it is good at the first viewing, bland at the second and shitty at the third.
It's just nothing special.
Try reading it again.
Maybe that's because Wing was incredibly awesome.
Zechs and Treize were probably the coolest two characters evar.
actually i stoped at episode 1 because of the yoko fanservice, i can't stand massive fanservice, it just ruin the series, also robots anime are just not my type.
Bartender was better than GL. At least to me. Not everyone enjoys loudmouth mecha shows. GL wasn't all that original anyway, people just like its energy because they have never seen a super robot show before.
don't have one. you're thinking of yourself.
I have not seen Bartender but I respectfully disagree that it is better than GL.
Not true. I've watched plenty of mecha anime and i found Gurren Lagann to be superior to most (if not ALL) animes I've seen.
no i will not be your gay lover, faggot
22 000 FRAMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
nobody wants you anyway
>I have not seen [...] BUT GL IS STILL BETTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
At least he was respectful about it ^___________^
So, say it right stupid fuck.
Well you aren't stating any points to disprove me though.
Gurren Lagann > AntiGL Trolls
i'm sure you're proud of all them men lusting after your ass
Gurren Lagann > Underage GL fans.
but i don't have gay lovers or attract them. that's just you being a faggot
incorrect, you like GL, therefore it is only logical you like dicks in your ass, enjoy.
I'll say it anyway I fucking please.
So go watch your stupid mediocre animes.
I don't get it. Why is it assumed that GL fans are underaged?
GL is typical Gainax self referential bullshit full of yelling and LOL MANLINESS. Shit appeals to children.
I love Gurren Buttfucking Lagann but theese threads make me want to kill OP.
If you actually had watched any other mecha anime, you'd see that GL is not all that special.
you mean like GL?
Bet guy can get his money now.
faglolololol enjoy dicks in your ass
I'm sorry you didn't like it.
trollolololol enjoy being a dumbass
/a/ haet hotblood
faggots really like trolling huh?
i know what AntiGL shitheads way of thinking now
I'm tired of this shit.
I'm going back to /m/
ha. /m/ enjoy your gayer roleplaying and OOOOH GUNDAM AND IDEON. fucking faggots
yes, please stop trolling since you're the only fag in here. I don't go to gaia and talk about stupid shit, so don't bring your garbage in here.
haha faggot newfag detected. GL came from /a/ you numbnuts. you go back to gaia
Roleplaying in /m/?
Are we talking about the same board?
GL came from Gainax, the gaiafags on /a/ circle jerk over it, go back to gaia please.
Wow. You really think it came from gaia?
You must be blind and immune to it.
ROW ROW FIGHT THE POWER!
Gurren Lagann is a cookie cutter mecha. Even Nadesico makes fun of it and Nadesico came out several years prior.
That's the spirit! d(>_<)b
Has anyone noticed everyday theres a GL thread that has 100+ posts?
It came from gaiafags that migrated to /a/. Go to your shitty forum and post about GL there, I'm sure there won't be anyone to dispute your claim that GL is the BEST ANIME EVAR.
That could be said of the basic premise, but the execution of the whole thing was goddamn amazing.
>It came from gaiafags that migrated to /a/.
The only "amazing" thing about GL was the actual animation, really (200000 frames and all that)
You stupid fucking newfag. Gurren Lagann has always been a staple of /a/, the faggotry started when the series was almost over.
Go genuflect on a hot plate and never come back.
Fans of Cowboy Bepop or Ideon?
GEKIGAN GIGA DORILLLU BREAKAAAAA FLAAAAAAAARRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEE
LETS GO GEKIGENGAR THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
lol you stupid fucking tripfag, remember when 4chan was good? oh wait no you didn't, you were too busy on gaia before you came and shitted the place up.
obvious troll is obvious. I'll sit back and enjoy my victory over your newfagness.
4chan was never good.
Agreed, /a/ was unanimous that it rocked when GL first came out
so >>10149478 stfu
As a fan of the three SRW staples(Mazinger Z, GETTER, and Gundam) and all that followed, I am confident enough to say that GL took everything they offered and made it more awesome.
It's like a QB throwing a TD pass for 30 yards and then a rookie QB threw a 40 yarder.
lol fags, one part of /a/ liked GL and the other part liked Lucky Star. Both are shit, and so are you
it started airing one year ago lolol
using a sports metaphor on /a/
not a good way to get your point across
but it's American football, so it must mean all of them were pointless and dumb.
the first shitstorms I remember were when episode 8 aired, and the front page was that same fucking screenshot
beforehand it had been "WE NEED ANOTHER LUCKY STAR THREAD"
"NOT ENOUGH LUCKY STAR"
possibly timotei, i don't really remember that far back
>It came from gaiafags that migrated to /a/.
GL fanboys make naruto fans look good.
>GL haters make naruto fans look good.
The first GL thread I saw was a Episode 3 Eyecatch with 4 posts on page 5.
Gurren Lagann is reaal deep and meaningful. It even helped me be more social and be confident about myself, it even helped bring me out of my depression.
>GL fanboys are naruto fans
AWESOME GURRENT LAGANN WHEN I WAS
malformed video ID error
sorry, this video is awesome it is the everything I love about Gurren Lagann and more.
kill it with fire
GL is not about being EMO
it's about piercing the heavens! believe in you! who believes in yourself!!
HALO IS THE BEST GAME EVAR
EVERY SINGLE DAY
IT'S THE SAME GODDAMN ARGUMENT
I'M LIVING IN AN INESCAPABLE ENDLESS LOOP!
Kamina died because he is a fag.
Actually, Imamashi just said "make it about drills". The rest of that was just the usual Gainax bullshitting, they even outright admitted there weren't any higher themes that were intended this time (thank god), just that it was supposed to be good old fashioned fun.
Which it was. Gurren Lagann had several faults, but it was still a fun ride.
