hey /a/ i just wondered, why, the hell, does Gurren Lagann have only 27 episodes?
While stuff like Dragonball / Naruto / Bleach all go over 9000, i mean atleast over 300 episodes each
Number of eps = quality, I agree.
Because it's not shit.
Gainax is too poor to make an anime with more than 26 episodes.
You're a bit severe, I would say 3/10.
Picture is nice :o
But GL IS shit.
how can something be shit that has a redhead with busty tits and a fucking sniper rifle be shit?
>Gainax is too poor to make an anime with more than 26 episodes.
Gainax has had many incompletes due to lack of funds in the past, ex: Kare Kano
Gainax has been around since the end of the ninteen eighties but studio bones has been around for only 6 or 8 and they've made (if you include soul eater) three 50 episode series, why is that?
Nice equation there. Using it tells us that the quality of rosario and vampire>quality of GL.
how can pure awsomness be purged while stupid faggotry live forever... oh god damn.. lucky /b/
Maybe because they felt that a standard season length was adequate with which to tell the story?
Maybe they knew stretching it on for longer and longer could only hurt any sort of integrity they had?
Duh, Rosario + Vampire IS better than GL.
kare kano was cancelled due to problems with the author of the manga.
actually it was planned to go longer but ps3sux
>>10209757 Maybe because they felt that a standard season length was adequate with which to tell the story?
Apparently not since they're making a movie.
Why must abuse the comma like that? Also, consider that Gurren Lagann is a good show, while Dragonball/Naruto/Bleach are all terrible shows.
It has Gainax animation on episode 10. You should be cumming over it.
btw any release date for the GL movie? All i hear of is fall 08
GL is on the same level as Naruto/Bleach etc, just shorter.
Two months before the first of the next 9 movies after it.
ITT people think they're clever trolls
Dragonball / Naruto / Bleach
Dear lord, one worse than the other, dragonball is complete shit, followed by Naruto that stretches ONE, PATHEDIC, SHITTY STORY THE REST OF OUR LIVES, Bleach is meh, but not great either.
/a/'s worse than usual now. what the fuck?
spring break so the underage bans from /b/ are here
If you're a faggot troll maybe.
This thread has potential.
GL is the best troll food possible.
Start a thread basshing GL, and, presto! 200 replies.
OP didn't bash GL
what bashing you retard? take your fucking dick out of your eye and READ.
Clannad bashing thread in 10 minutes after that.
If you wanna have fun guys. Go to /m/ and say what you truly feel about gundam 00.
I will honestly try that in a bit
More like troll GundamOO amirite?
/m/ is full with weird people who fap to robots.
GL is good to troll because some people really think its not just a kids sunday-morning super robot show.
Because if they stretched it out any longer people would realise it is actually quite a shallow series with a single robot going super saiyan > super saiyan 2 > super saiyan 3 and that is about it.
GL was originally planned to be 52 eps, but seeing that it was such an ambitious project even for Gainax standards, Imaishi&Co. thought they'd get exhausted doing it for that long.
So it was shortened to 26 episodes.
NO FILLER MOTHERFUCKERS.
Because it's an anime and not a manga.
Are you dense?
truth be told, it would have worked well as a 50 episode anime.
srsly, trolls are not funny anymore because people have learnt to ignore them.
NO GL fanboys have stepped up to defend their show in this thread.
School is over already I see.
the whole thing was filler...
kare kano's end made my cry...
a gainax end to trump all gainax ends
As long as there is no filler I don't care if a show hits the 100 episode mark, but I can't think of any that do that.
anime with 300+ episodes are all shit. That's why Gurren Lagann has 27 episodes.
Some need to post tha pic which compares Digimon to TTGL.
Long running animes suck. I thought we established this.
GL's so awesome. When's the movie coming out again?
>anime i'm too lazy to watch are all shit. That's why I don't like anime that much.
Legend of Galactic Heroes is boring shit.
In before nostalgia fags.
it was good... but it dragged on forever, i never finished it. Never had filler though, but i think this was its problem - it never let up and thus was overbearing.
GL after time skip is boring shit...actually it's just shit.
EVERY ANIME IS BORING AND SHIT
/a/ only knows hate.
/a/ knows love when something deserves it
what is love?
baby don't hurt me
and that was from a guy who lurks /a/... wow, what's next? you gonna claim "OH BOI' I'M AN ELITIST ONLY MANGA /a/SSHOLE"?
why do i have the feeling that here are atleast 3 /b/tards.
26 is the perfect amount of episodes to tell a gripping story, explore characters, and end it all in a satisfying way.
Actually, no. It depends on the story. I can name some animu like .hack//sign where 26 episodes was too long or Last Exile where 25-26 episodes ws too short. It really depends on what kind of story it is more than episode count.
>>10210512 and end it all
Not with gainax.
tell that to StrikerS...
How the hell is that trolling.
I agree had it been longer it wouldn't been hated upon as much as it is now.
actually naruto does not have 300, not even close to 300 because the fillers are not part of the story
Actually, the existing story could've been extended to 52 episodes and still feel natural. Many episodes of GL feel like two episodes squashed together where you can almost see where they would've originally divided.
