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.
>>
>>10209699
AHAHAHAHAHAHA
>>
0/10
>>
>>10209688
Gainax is too poor to make an anime with more than 26 episodes.
>>
>>10209694
You're a bit severe, I would say 3/10.
Picture is nice :o
>>
>>10209699
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
>>
>>10209732

>>
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?
>>
>>10209697

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?
>>
>>10209752
Duh, Rosario + Vampire IS better than GL.
>>
>>10209732
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.
>>
>>10209688
Why must abuse the comma like that? Also, consider that Gurren Lagann is a good show, while Dragonball/Naruto/Bleach are all terrible shows.
>>
>>10209758
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
>>
>>10209778
GL is on the same level as Naruto/Bleach etc, just shorter.
>>
>>10209780

Two months before the first of the next 9 movies after it.
>>
ITT people think they're clever trolls
>>
>>10209778

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?

/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...

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.
>>
>>10209995
logh

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.

>>10210007
Legend of Galactic Heroes is boring shit.

In before nostalgia fags.
>>
>>10210031
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.
>>
>>10210031
GL after time skip is boring shit...actually it's just shit.

No

Slight amusement.

>>10210228
>>10210231

26 is the perfect amount of episodes to tell a gripping story, explore characters, and end it all in a satisfying way.
>>
>>10210512
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.

>>
>>10210785
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
>>
>>10210803

Idiot.
>>
>>10209968
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.
