It was okay. Not bad, not good. Nothing really stand-out for a normal male viewer, but I hear fags and fat chicks found it unusually alluring.

Fan-pleaser. It has everything that's wrong with animu today: pointless fanservice, moeblobs, self referential humour (lol teh rei xDDD), forced homoeroticism, EXPLOSIONS, powerlevels, all characters are stereotypes, no plot buildup (one big event after another)

The sci-fi shounen genre has never had it this good. Okay, not never since Giant Robo exists, but this anime managed to claw its way out of the pile of junk that sometimes stinks up the shounen genre to provide something really refreshing. Tengen Toppa is loud, it's brash, it's explosive just like all the others, and yet it also delivers deep characterisation and moving subplots. It's Gundam on speed, GaoGaiGar with brains, Code Geass with sentiments, and has a liberal dose of Toward the Terra's epic feel. In essence, it looks asinine on the surface, but actually spins a mature and compelling story without losing that heart-stopping sense of adventure.

The first half is not just a great series of episodes but a remarkable laying down of groundwork. At first, what seemed to be merely fun concepts, such as mecha combining, primitive societies living in caves, and battles occurring with giant drill-shaped arms, actually took on meaning in the latter half that lifted the show to epic proportions. The focus shifted from providing a series of power-ups and simple good-versus-evil battles to a fairly complex weaving of political and philosophical ‘grey areas', human empowerment, and romance. Tengen Toppa basically tried to be everything to everyone - it tried to let us have our cake and eat it - and to a large extent, it succeeded.
>>
Animation:

I haven't enjoyed a world concept like this since Jyu Oh Sei; the effort put into developing both a believable and yet wholly refreshing universe is admirable. My eyes feasted on the quirky colour palette and animal species, the unique outfits and the bold mecha designs. In a more technical sense, the animation allowed for smooth enough movement, but, more importantly, hilarious facial expressions and enough juvenile inventiveness (did I mention the giant arm-drills?) to appeal to the child in me. Moreover, the distinct ‘comic book' use of light and shadow and extreme camera angles made for an excellent dramatic tone during many of the climactic scenes. Watch out for an episode early on which is actually directed and animated by the same studio that brought us Beck - the animation style was just unsuitable and called for an uncomfortable adjustment on my part.
>>
If you liked the ending you'll swallow any bullshit you're given. Other than that it was a fine show, though.

Characters

Tengen Toppa would not be half the anime it is without Kamina, the thread that holds the entire fabric together. True, Simon is in fact the central protagonist, but the star quality Kamina brings to the plot is unrivalled. He is cocky, charming, invigorating, tragic, and fearless, a hero whose personality overshadows everything. In terms of charisma, he is probably outdone only by Goro Honda from Major.

Simon, on the other hand, did not show his mettle until quite late into the series. Much of the beginning and middle episodes were used to peel off the layers of his innocence one by one until what was left was the determined and, disappointingly, semi-charismatic core. He rode a powerful mecha and made some great speeches, but in the end I found him less exciting to watch than some of the others.

Those others would include Yoko the sassy sharpshooter, who unfortunately became the sole victim of the series' ecchi leanings, Rossiu, a former priest's apprentice whose development was one of the most complex, Nia, a charming abandoned princess looking for her identity, and Viral the beastman, who turned out to be far more than just an amusing recurring antagonist. Actually, the high number of characters that were developed is commendable considering the show was only twenty-seven episodes; getting attached to several of them was easy.
>>
tl;dr
>>
Apart from a few moments of inelegant execution, this series packs in some high quality ideas. With a gung-ho mix of action, comedy, over-the-top science, zany animation, subdued intellectuality and witty characterisation, Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann is a treat for anybody looking for something accessible, all-round fun, engaging and deep.

The ending explained what most of the characters had become after the final fight had long since happened.

That's the best thing you can get from an ending, in my opinion. I just want to know how the story continues and will continue.

I fucking loved it too but I hated the ending. If it weren't for the ending GL would be my favorite any of all times. Oh well.
