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.

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

Chapter 1
Hanrasen

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.

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.

Chapter 2
Spiral Nemesis

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.

Last chapter
Universe

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!)

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.

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 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?

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
funnier protagonist
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.

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.

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.

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.
