Official /a/ stance on Gurren Lagann? Because I see all kinds of opinions on this one.
(not a troll)
I think for the most part /a/ liked the show but hates the active fanbase.
This. This is completely true and anybody who says anything else is lying to you. Seriously.
It's an alright super robot show without deep meaning or substance.
A fun ride, but nothing more.
FUCKING AWESOME JESUS CHRIST FUCK! Pierce the heavens with your goddamn drill shit!!
but you didn't hear it from me
it's funny how /a/ went from agreeing that it was EPIC to being a trolled anime like Haruhi or Lucky star
I like it, but I'm still surprised at how active the fanbase is.
That's /a/ for you
I trolls everything it loves. Except for Bleach and Naruto. We genuinely hate those things. Overall /a/ is very tsundere.
/a/ is tsundere for Bleach.
It's not like 2007 was a rowdy and awesome year for japanimation.
>Official /a/ stance on Gurren Lagann? Because I see all kinds of opinions on this one.
Did you mean: "When?"
>>10191539 (not a troll)
Same as Lucky Star.
People are not over it yet, despite there being many better slice of life comedies.
GL: shit right?
Awesome and inspirational. While everything about it was taken from something in the past, it's the new things about it that take it to the next level(or make it worse for others). Still can't believe Kamina's dad was a nobody. WHAT A TWEEST
Lucky Star was awesome faggots.
SAGE FOR FAGGOTRY. DO NOT FEED THIS FUCKING TROLL.
has not seen Gurren Lagann and merely parroting trolls
GaoGaiGar for the new generations.
It's an ok show, but tends to be horribly overrated by his shitty fanbase, which is no better than the ones of Naruto, One Piece, Bleach, etc.
Not much of a twist if it was revealed in the second ep?
>Still can't believe Kamina's dad was a nobody.
Yeah what the fuck was up with that
and also who the hell was the guy fighting in space in the first episode? Random spiral?
Hohoho, I still remember /a/'s speculations about Simon being Kamina's dad through some retarded time paradox.
Now I get why some of these fags like the series... they are retarded.
That space pirate and Bootaide are the best characters in GL for me. They got me interested in the show. Kamina just comes in third place.
That was Simon you twit.
You are an idiot for associating Gurren Lagann with these piece of crap filler shounen series. Fuck you.
Officially, everyone on /a/ knows that Gurren Lagann was one of the best shows of 2007, as an undisputable fact. It's not the best mecha anime ever made, but anyone with a brain never said it was, although it's definately good enough to compared other series in the future to it.
This is daytime /a/ and OP is probably a troll, but I don't give a shit because I need to set the record straight.
>it's definately good enough to compared other series in the future to it.
Gundam 00 is already a better mecha anime, and Macross F and Geass season 2 will be as well.
>Gundam 00 better
>Geass season 2 will be
lol wut. Macross actually has a chance.
Depth and artistic merit are overrated. They are basically the same as drinking games. A new layer, like a mini-game that one can play in addition to enjoying a work.
I watch anime and movies etc. for entertainment. Which Gurren Lagann has in spades.

shit chart is shit
episode 12 should be over fucking over the limit in AWESOME
Macross and Gundam are already established franchises, but you can't say the same for Geass. Geass was terribly cheesy and really generic, for the most part. I had to drop it.
/m/ hates it now too, they like Gundam 00 and Geass better
Still better than GL.
>Gundam 00 is already a better mecha anime, and Macross F and Geass season 2 will be as well.
This just reeks of real robot faggotry. Take that shit back to /m/.
When GL was airing, EVERYONE was loving it. I guess a bunch of fags got butthurt because they didn't like the ending.
>>Official oldfag /a/ stance on Gurren Lagann
Same thing happened with Haruhi, everyone loved it during its run but it started to get hated after the end.
Official /a/ stance on Lucky Star? Because I see all kinds of opinions on this one.
>Official /a/ stance
AHAHAHA oh wow
I think the newfags just believed what the trolls were saying. That's the only reason I can think of.
/a/ love GL , but is so tsundere to admit it
She is shitting on Geass, not Lucky Star
This thread is an eyesore, anyone who lurked on /a/ for even 1 hour would know the stance on Gurren Lagann, therefore sorry OP, you must be the newest newfag /a/ has ever seen.
and you idiots responding seriously? Is your hate/love for the series strong enough to feed trolls? Pic related for you all.
I rest my case. Stfu and leave.
Fags came out of the woodwork with no taste and talk shit about good shows they haven't seen.
I'm also going to add that only the old Gundam series are good, Gurren Lagann is way better than every recent incarntation of Gundam. Gundam SEED is mecha anime for women and bishounen faggots. Only good thing to come out of Gundam SEED is the porn.
unlike Haruhi which was hated and love at the same time when it was airing (front page full of Haruhi threads wtf)
or Lucky Star which was dismissed as loli moe garbage at the start then suprisingly found a place in some anon's hearts
Gurren Lagann was fucking LOVED when it came out. Believe in yourself quote was plastered all over. Kamina was the new GAR. They even made gaijin 4koma for every episode.
I'm sad for the newfag state /a/ is now in
0/10, not even trying...
No Anonymous, you are the troll.
There's this faggot who said GL came from gaia. I was laughing my ass off is all I can say.
>> Gurren Lagann was fucking LOVED when it came out.
It came out in Newfag Summer 2007, draw you own conclusion who were the Anonymous who loved it from that. It's shit imho. Nice porn, though.
LOL, so a few retarded fucks on /a/ posted about it all day whenever each new episode came out, and we called it "loved"? I watched it when it was airing, and wasnt nearly as excited about it as the obvious fans were at every new episode, and I wasnt real surprised that the ending was sucked, because anyone with half a brain could tell the writers were shitting out bullshit plot and didnt plan for an end (LOL epilogue).
I liked it. Way overrated with tons of retarded fans however. Too much damn drama 4chan, even more so in Japanland.
It's better than One Piece.
>>LOL, so a few retarded fucks on /a/ posted about it all day whenever each new episode came out, and we called it "loved"?
this is /a/, that's about the most affection you will get. Compared to being trolled and shitstormed to oblivion
More liek all of /a/ except for you huh Mr. Tough Guy Lone Wolf
The hate threads about it what made it suck.
>so a few retarded fucks
more than you think.
The psychology of Gurren Lagann hatred on /a/ is the same as the psychology of Mario hatred on /v/.
>HAI GUISE! I HATE IT WHEN OTHER PEOPLE ENJOY STUFF!
Personally, Gurren Lagann was the one show of 2007 I liked the most. I find it very rewatcheable, especially episodes 1 and 15 and 22 and 26 and 27. It has lots of heart and soul and a unique vision, a unique style, much more so than other generic anime like...I dunno, Sky Girls or Higurashi Kai or the other things that came out that year.
I can't wait till the DVD's come out.
No there were lots of hate for GL during its airing too, lots of love for it too as well of course.
Really it's the same thing that happened with Haruhi.
Everyone defending GL is a newfag by default.
It started in April/May when it was still Spring. No Gurren Lagann trolls existed until the series wrapped up. You don't know anything. More Gaiafags are here in the winter than they were during the summer.
>Mario hatred on /v/
what? are you serious?
how the hell can you hate everyone's childhood plumber/princess rescuer?
I'm sure you have IP logs and stuff, anyone with enough time can troll /a/ and act like 50 people, go ahead and continue to rate your anime with perceived "popularity," you will eternally remain a newfag since you obviously dont understand 4chan.
Because every Mario game and therefore every Nintendo game by default is a rehash. Also waggle.
/a/ likes GL, but won't admit to it because it's popular. Everyone hates Ghost Nia though. We can agree on that.
I still need an answer for this.
You are the retarded fuck.
LOL, NO ONE UNDERSTANDS 4CHAN, FAG.
Most likely hasn't seen it, and is basing his opinion on fan reaction, and popularity.
Oh I understand how 4chan works. That's why I'm against it. Stop assuming.
Because, until the point where a bunch of faggots took a liking to GL, people would come here for recommendations, and we'd tell them to fuck off and lurk more. Also, no one had an emotional reason to defend any anime series, even their favorite.
Gurren Lagann changed that generally agreed upon attitude, and now we have a bunch of fuckers being trolled daily and shitting up /a/, because trolls know people will actively try to defend it.
Internet genius. Watch out.
Look at >>10192393
Stop telling me what I already know. You're hating the show because of the fans which is stupid in my opinion.
>you obviously dont understand 4chan.
Newfag "lulz scientology raid" alert. Get the fuck out of /a/.
Yea, it was only a few newfags who spammed the shit out of Gurren Lagann, you werent aware?
We can tell because those same faggots still post about and defend the series in spite of being obvious trollbait/waste of /a/ space, except when they have to sleep or are at school.
>HAI GUISE I LIKE SEINEN
That's the vibe I get from fuckers like you. What's good is good. You don't have to take an "acquired taste" approach to everything.
I think I'll watch it one day. ROW ROW FIGHT DA POWAH! is an awesome song.
I have only one thing to say
ROW ROW FIGHT THE POWER
Who said I hate the show? I hate these fucking daily threads and posts, makes /a/ seem like gaia where a bunch of fucks still post about Cowboy Bebop and have never stopped posting since it came out.
Every time you defend your favourite anime, when someone else says it sucks, you're most likely just amusing someone who wants to see how you react. And even if that some thinks what he said, why should you let his opinion get to you? Sadly, a lot of /a/ doesn't get this and continues to do exactly as the trolls want them to.
Can't you just fucking take it like a man and ignore it when someone says your mother's a bitch?
Don't bother. The series is not actually that good.
I think I'll watch it one day. ROW ROW FIGHT DA POWAH! is an awesome song, only downloaded the soundtrack and I'm already trying to learn how to play it on a piano.
>>10192467 Yea, it was only a few newfags who spammed the shit out of Gurren Lagann, you werent aware?
wow nice argument why don't you go on deluding yourself
i like TTGL but because it gets trolled constantly i flame the trolls, and i'm pretty sure i'm not the only one
also newfags sustain this board, the trouble comes when they don't lurk enough
GL used to be cool on the start, but then some guys tried to make it look like something the show never was.
Since then /a/ started losing interest for the show and due the massive flood and spam caused by its vocal fanboys it angered neutral people without any bias against the anime.
Shit happens, get over it guys.
Faggot. That's what /a/ is for. Trolling and defending your favorite show is the best thing about /a/. I love TROLLAN GAEMS!
TTGL ruined anime for me. Its like tasting the finest wine. From that point forward, everything else just tastes like piss.
shit sucks and so do you fuck off
Fact: people bitch more in gurren lagann threads than in one piece or death note threads.
I stopped loving Gurren Lagann after Kamina died.
Then I only liked it.
Gainax and the show is shit. Troll harder.
>on the start
Same here. Gundam 00, Clannad and Kaiji are getting me back on the right track though.
I trid to watch kimikiss after GL, I couldn't bear he pure boredom.
Bleach is best suited for you.
And that's exactly what /a/ shouldn't be for...
/a/ - here be the trolls, newfags and gaiafags
Watch more animu, kid.
