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,

LOL NO.

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!
>>
>>10148327

Ughhh...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
