Jeebus. Mechfags hate it with a passion. The Super fans hate it because it because of LOLPOWERLEVELS beating their favorite. Real fans hate it because it garners more attention than their supposedly "acquired taste" shows.
>>
>>10292209
Yes, but consider that GL 15 had over 22000 frames of animation, whereas an important episode in your normal series has around 12000.

I think it still equates to GL's being superior even against a 52 episode animu because even by normal standards it is so infinitely superior.

14 and under, plus the ones over 30 that still live with mom and dad.

All of those who can appreciate it for what it is. A fun well animated anime with a colorful cast of characters, giant robots, and a progressive storyline that will keep you on the edge of your seat!

Your generic approach at trying to assassinate a popular show is pitiful. Generic attack #1: Claim that the popular show has a childish and/or retarded userbase which will scare the show's cult fanbase away. Protip: GL is indeed a kid's show. Also, GL is destined to have a popular, underaged/retarded fanbase due to the fact that it is a kid's show. But at the same time. I love GL because it was created for kids. GL made me feel like a kid again. ;_; I've never seen a show quite like it. It was a show that never took itself too seriously.

I basically stopped watching anime after Gurren-Lagann ended, so I guess it helped me break the vicious circle. Memorable way to end. Goodnight, Gurren-Lagann.

I still read manga. I just can't sit down for 25 mins watching shows that take baby steps each episode. Gurren-Lagann's greatest appeal was the promise of progress. The time invested watching was actually worth the entertainment experienced.

Gurren Lagann reminds me of the bastard spawn of Evangelion and FLCL. I honestly though the show was amazing so long as you can let slide its over-the-top nature. It really does have a decent moral behind all the pretty pictures.

Just like a lot of shounen action series, sports ones in particular. GL took a lot of inspiration from Ashita no Joe

I mentioned Gurren Lagann to my friend (who is quite the anime geek himself) and he said the idea of characters throwing entire galaxies at one another was stupid. I asked him if he thought it was as retarded as a orange-haired chick flying on a bass guitar, and he didn't have any real respond.

Anime is usually pretty out-there. If you want something down to Earth, you probably shouldn't be watching works done by gainax.

i got more entertainment out of listening to that story as a child than watching GL as a young adult. Diminishing marginal utility.

No, but they help. If you don't find that sort of stuff entertaining, then you probably shouldn't have watched GL. If you didn't watch it, and I assume that's the case, then you really don't have any basis for whether or not you can say that GL was good or not, other than second-hand accounts and /a/'s word on it. Long story short, sod off.

Well, you failed to make so much as a coherent sentence there. That aside, you're retarded if you take a show with a giant, physics-shattering drill attack seriously to the point of considering it pretentious.

Males of all ages. It was made to appeal to adults while still being light enough to air in the morning for kids. It's like Star Wars.

It consists of 20,000 frames of animation--and most of those are key frames.
>>
>>10293111

If you honestly think the creators of Gurren Lagann take the series with a straight-face between the ridiculousness and in-story jokes, you're completely hopeless and I feel bad for arguing with someone who is in fact mentally handicapped.

So, we have this series. You hear it's over-the-top, filled with explosion, tits, and whatever else you don't like. Now, you can just ignore the series because it obviously isn't tailored to your taste, or you can watch it and complain about a series you didn't like for obvious reasons. Which do you choose?

To answer your question, Gurren Lagann's target audience was primarily males ranging from children to adults. The whole "believe in yourself and you'll pull through" moral is pretty generation-spanning. Kids were able to take it at face value while older viewers could appreciate just how crazy the whole series was (as someone mentioned, a robot puching an enemy out of the space-time continueum). That is just good entertainment.
