Serious Gainax discussion in this thread, folks. For example: FLCL's direction based over atmospheric achievements of Gurren-Lagann's very creative use of visual identity in dramatic storytelling.
Circlejerk in this thread, FUCK YEAH!
SERIOUS DISCUSSION, please.
shit sucks gtfo ;_;
Animu is serious business
I would agree if they hadn't produced FLCL and Gurren-Lagann.
Gainax has weak story and amazing visuals and music. they use the audio and video aspect to make up for that so you don't notice how weak the plot is
Spiral nemesis, or how Antispirals saved the universe from Simon's menace and left the fate of the universe in Rossiu's hands
a short written essay by anonymous
When the soon to be Antispirals discovered the menace of evolution, which already consumed their exhausted world and which would have consumed the entire universe with its eternal run to supremacy, they decided to seal themselves in their grey world merging their wills into a single individual.
This way, the universe in which the story takes place would have been a representation of one single individual's will, the antispiral king, and without clashes the evolutionary spring would have been controlled.
The antispiral king is actually at the top of evolution as his will is the universe itself: that's why the universe is "under their control", he controls probability, he is godlike.
Divide et impera, that's the method he used to prevent spiral nemesis from happening: keeping the spirals separated, the natural competition which is the base for evolution would have been slowed down, and he could still kill everyone who decided to compete with the system (as rasens had only that to compete with) through the (in the end flawed) hanrasen extermination system.
fooly cooly's story is just LOL RANDOM + generic shounen
Gurren lagann's story is a delicious copypasta
I loved Gurren Lagann and FLCL, I really did. But whoever takes the time to wrap their mouths around Gainax's cock just to stir up a reaction is asking for trolls to do the same, no matter how much they bitch about it.
What is spiral nemesis?
Spiral nemesis is lack of sense, farsightedness, sacrifice, it's the lack of a master intelligence controlling the system.
The present world is actually a great example of this.
Take economy, the market which was fairly simple and controllable in the past moved to a state where it moves on its own, and even if someone knew how to move the market for the better he wouldn't be able to even try!
We lost track of ourselves, of our desires and values: we are no longer in control, yet it is our fault.
No one wants wars, yet they happens. No one likes to waste, yet we've got "consuming" electronics.
This taken to the extremes will lead the universe to collapse. This is the spiral nemesis.
There is not enough universe for us all to have one.
Gainax cock stroking
The universal annihilation, Spiral nemesis, was about to occur in the last episode. It was SO close. The Antispiral king tried to dissuade Simon by talking many times during the last arc.
Unsuccessful again, seeing the end of the universe each round of the spiral closer he decided to put Simon and his crew through a final test to see if Simon was able to be the next guardian of the universe ("Tell me do you have that determination?"): he tried to destroy the Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann with the Infinity Big Bang Storm, energy capable of creating universes: would Simon be able to manage that energy creating a whole new universe which moved according to his will or would he be destroyed by that?
Seeing Simon had reached his level, in order to prevent Spiral nemesis to occur he sacrificed himself and his whole race and left Simon as guardian of the universe (naraba kono uchuu kanarazu mamore!)
Where is Cirno? No Circlejerking thread is complete without him.
GAINAX FAP FAP FAP.
My fellow artfags are confusing. They hate Evangelion and love Gurren Lagann. I like to think I am even faggier than the faggiest of artfags.
What happens in the end is quite something.
We see Simon stepped down from his role of guardian (ie, dare demo nai ka? No, I guess I'm nobody): he was only moved by his desire of saving Nya and by Kamina's rambling about always moving forward (we have eyes on the front because we move forward!) which is evolving: actually the whole Kamina's character symbolize evolution as he promoted chaos and changes, brought changes and in the end was discarded when he wasn't needed anymore before becoming a burden.
>Anonymous of Alabama !.p44NyTsCo
Simon did think spirals could control theirselves ("tousen da *ningen* wa soko made oroka janai") and so he left the entire universe in a state of turmoil, only this time free of developing.
This way the universe is not expression of one single individual anymore, and it is much more probable for spiral nemesis to grow out of control: the only one able to stop this is Rossiu who will have to work with the other spiral beings through politics and compromises: expressing only the will of the majority should make the universe move in a single direction without breaking.
This is now a Diebuster thread.
This is actually a huge step forward in evolution, no longer based on single particular entities (Simon, the antispiral king, Kamina and so on) but based on government and countries and alliances of people, just like cells allies in order to form a single being.
As you can't stop evolution, is spiral nemesis the only endlösung? Is mutual self destruction the only reasonable thing to do?
What did I do? All I did was mistakenly predict Cirno's arrival.
OH GOD THEY ARE SHIT WANA KNOW WHY THEIR FANBOYS NOT THEIR ANIME THE FANBOYS ARE SHIT SO THEREFOR I CAN SAY WITHOUT VIEWING ANYTHING THEY HAVE EVER MADE THAT ALL THEIR ANIME IS PURE AND COMPLETE SHIT BECAUSE THEIR FANBOYS ARE SHIT
Well, I can say that while Gainax sometimes makes good stuff and sometimes makes bad stuff, all of their fanboys are shit.
I just watched diebuster, it wasn't nearly as bawwing as I heard here.
Actually was more moved by Gunbuster even though Diebuster was funnier:
less oneechan shittiness
but filled with "you don't need X to be strong you just need to feel it in your heart! and be a fucking megamecha
Actually I liked Gunbuster more than Diebuster but that's because I had already finished Gurren-Lagann and that was as bad ass as possible. The only reason I like Diebuster is because of sexy Nono. Sexy Sexy Nono. Speaking of which, I need more pics.
Humans are fucking awesome.
And that's the plot.
I'm sure there are people who actually believe that.
>fooly cooly's story is just LOL RANDOM
people will believe anything they specifically choose to out of a variety of options - usually choosing the worst.
WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK I AM!?
Sage for Gainax, obviously. Everything they produce is utter trash. It makes me furious that people actually pretend to like it.
He was SO awesome-
The whole big bang storm sequence (from the ore no oyome wa uchuu ichi swingu to the attack) was so overwhelming I had to pause a couple of times in order to walk a bit.
Too bad it was ruined by the inner gurren lagann dialogue explaining to kids what it was.
Remember this Well. This drill rips holes through the universe. That hole will become a path for those who follow us. The wishes of the defeated and the hopes of all who follow; with those two thoughts, weaving those aspirations into a double helix, we'll carve the path to tomorrow!
GET BACK TO BETTER STORY LIKE HOW THAT ONE BITCH FROM AZUMANGA HAET KAT
That is such a good still frame.
God damnit, Imaishi. You are a genius.
GL was only good when its direction was similar to FLCL in the first 8 episodes or so.
all I see is vagina
When it was less fucking serious and more fun/random/manly?
brb, refreshing ep 27
Eagerly awaiting ghost-less 27
Good end: Anti-Spiral wins and obliterates humanity with the Grand Zamboa.
This is a good video, but it suffers from a kind of "If you haven't seen it already, you won't understand shit" syndrome.
A lot of the clips are presented so fast, that they only way you can tell what's going on is because you've seen them before and recognize them instantly.
It's a robot with giant stupid sunglasses. Seriously.
Actually I thought the glasses were manly and awesome.
I want a pair of sunglasses like that, and a chainsaw arm.
along with gankutsuou watch and my hime clock
Sorry, you can't wear those glasses. They have to be attracted to your face through the sheer power of CHARISMA.
did we ever had a single high res picture of the final suicide attack?
attracted to your face through the sheer power of MANLYNESS
That MAD represents one themes of Gurren Lagann very well, how some willing sacrifices themselves (usually an older generation) so that other may continue to live or achieve something.
I want a star glasses so I can look like a manly faggot.
You mean the badass final attack scene that happens at the end of most anime like Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann? I could rather easily create it, but I fear that it'd take too long.
I shed a manly tear toward the end.
yeah, the one with the quintuple tentacle rape (like 5000*720)
From the first 8 episodes, only episodes 1 and 8 are actually great.
Fine, I'll post it. One moment, please.
3 is missing from this list.
Okay, I've extracted approximately 32 images for your request, so, of course, they won't fit in this Thread. It'd be too much trouble posting them now anyway. I'll post it some time tomorrow night, then.
