Any episode of Eureka 7:

Renton: I'm a wimp!
Eureka: I'm not human!
Renton: let's baw together!
Eureka: okay!

Other: wow, they really love each other, and what a horrible time to be living in.

watch yourself. you have no idea what those plants could be plotting.

also E7 is one of the few anime i've seen where i actually enjoyed it all the way through. most series' tend to turn shitty after a few eps (like GL) or have one of the only good elements removed (like GL) a retarded plot twist (like GL) or have a very shitty ending (like GL).
it's very difficult to find a series that you can really enjoy as a whole.

It's still boring as shit.

I liked Eureka Seven, but I found Gurren-Lagann's writing more focused and the overall experience more enjoyable. Eureka Seven's first episodes were absolutely absorbing, but after a while the plot structure became a mess that failed to follow any kind of logical progression and most of the character interaction became heavily formulaic. I think Bones' burned themselves out, they failed to make it throughly charming mostly due to how the writing could go from pretty cool to terrible in the span of an episode. Gurrren-Lagann's biggest strength was Nakajima handling most of the show, and it really makes the whole thing shine.

>>
Many talks have been had in this board about the idea of "progress" and "generations" across Gurren-Lagann's narrative, but I believe some of you are over-looking another key concept integral to the storytelling: "individuality".

Gurren-Lagann declares individuality as:
-Something necessary for progress
-Something you achieve rather than being born with.
-A single individual may begin a "social revolution" in order to destroy standardization.
-It's reciprocal. You gain individuality by your interactions with others.

And the Anti-Spiral was no different from Lord Genome. Twists upon twists!

“What is a person?
Eh?... Well, a person is something like us, that looks like this, and has a face...
There are others, too?
Huh? Ah, yes, there are...
Really? Are they all like you? Do they have a face like yours?
We're not the same. If we had the same face, it would be disturbing.”

It's impressive how much a simplistic dialog says about the global conflict AND the episode in question.
-Faces are a clear symbol of individuality in Gurren-Lagann. Hence the heavily characterized faced machines and the vilification of the mugan.
-By proxy, declares lack of individuality and "fitting in" as something disturbing.
-Hence portrays Simon's inner conflict after Kamina's demise. Him wanting to showcase a face that wasn't his.
-Similarly, it states the route of Nia's character development. Despite her looks, she was always one of millions: a doll for Lord Genome, a messenger for the Anti-Spiral. It's also her purpose for the narrative to portray another route to how reciprocal "individualization" is, since both she and Simon become individuals only through the help of each other.

Eureka 7's like the inverse of GL, all about the plot with mecha action as a filler. I would prefer a balance of the two, but I would say that somehow Eureka 7 just makes it more entertaining.

Gurren-Lagann's core was not the mecha action, Gurren-Lagann's core was the thematic content. Eureka Seven's core was not the plot, either, Eureka Seven's core was the characterization. Were you even watching the shows?

>I'm not the same person as you.
>As a matter of fact, I'm a totally different person.
>But because we are different, I believe we can live together.
>Thank you... for this ring.
>I am very happy

Concretely, this takes the idea of "different faces" forward and reinforces the idea of a reciprocal individualization. Beyond that, this perfectly ties in with:

>Genetic diversity via sexual reproduction is the key to evolution.

...to a more blatant extent and adds to the overall dramatics of Nia, who was so proud of her self-attained individuality, becoming but a puppet for a society of "same-faced" individuals.

No, I'm not. All of these themes and developments are clear as water.

As for now, I'll explain how characters assert their individuality by their interactions with others through the more simplistic examples I can find:

-Kamina's security came from his need to become a man that would respect Simon.
-Simon's strength and personality came from the belief of both Kamina and Nia.
-Nia "learned" from Simon to become her own self, to be someone different from just "Genome's daughter".

As for a metafictional take on this statement, I'll resort to quoting Gainax own history:

>>assert your individuality by your interactions with others.
Has been every single aspect of Gainax since day one. Every single Gainax work owes plenty to different narratives. They've mastered their own voice through experimenting with others' voices.

>>
>>11292209
Because I don't like Bach does not mean it's shit. Some things can be quantified, like the animation/backgrounds/character designs quality, the plot development, the implementation of references for GL or the universe's originality and coherence for E7. However, the entertainment it provided to you can't be mesured.

I really should convert this into a copypasta for future reference.
>>
E7 is a fucking soap opera with mechs. Mechs that aren't even that great, by the way.

And the character designs are pig disgusting. I love GL, but even a GL hater will admit that GL is at the very least pretty to watch, especially the characters. E7 is an ugly show with even uglier characters. Have you seen Eureka's fucking kids? Ew.

Also, for a show with mechs, they fucking underuse them. If they used the Nirvash more than twice in the first arc, maybe the show would be interesting instead of complete and total daytime television crap.

You really think they have a quantified analytical method of handing out awards? Yeah, sure, a vote system among the panel at best. I doubt it is of any significance, or it would have taken literary theory and statistical schools by a storm.

Exactly this is why I don't say a show/manga is shit unless it's completely obvious. See Naruto, Bleach. As if anyone cares about my opinions anyway.

Eureka 7's soundtrack >>>>>>>>>>> GL's soundtrack

Shitstorm ensued. 8/10

E7 soundtrack > GL sountrack

I don't think it was a troll.
It was just some anon stating a simple, and widely acknowledged, fact.
>>
>>11293043

But Gurren-Lagann is better than Eureka Seven, this ANN, MyAnimeList and AniDB agreed.
>>
>>11293043

0/10

You came too late into the thread.
>>
have never seen it, don't want a show with little kids for little kids
>>
>>11293043

I think you got the thread backwards.

>Gurren-Lagann: Better than Eureka Seven

There you go, a fact.

DOHOHOHOHOHO

GL and E7 made for kids who like to fap to men with no shirt.
>>
>>11293085
Uh

you don't think GL was targeted at kids?

really? :)
>>
>>11293186
Have you ever stopped for a moment to appreciate how ridiculous you sound? Seriously, are you 12?
>>
gotta disagree

GTGL beat the crap out of E7. E7's problem was it went on so much that no one cared by the time it ended.

>>11293186
no sir, its called burning manly passion.
>>
>Eureka 7: better than GL
does not warrant 282 replies...
>>
>>11293284

I cared.
>>
Eureka 7 sucks.
>>
>>11292915
I don't see a shitstorm in here

If I remember right, E7 did win similar awards to what GL won this year
>>
>>11293284
Actually, the dwindling in interest was due to Shitsen's faggotry near the end of the series.
>>
>>11294109

Exactly. It's just GLfags and E7fags saying, LOL GUYS, OUR SHOWS WON THE SAME AWARDS, LET'S CIRCLEJERK AND CALL GEASS SHIT LOL.
>>
>>11294178
>Shitsen

I think you mean Nanashit. Shinsen never subbed E7
>>
>>11294233
but Geass is shit
>>
>>11294233
its because 99.9% of the watchers of Geass watch it for CC
>>
>>11294233

Are you saying it isn't shit, boy?

I like my noodles in my soup not in my animu.

sorry guys, but think about it. Evangelion wasn't that good. I'm not trolling either. There was nothing that pulled me in and I just watched it to see if something would happen. Something did, but it was a disappointment to expectations. Albeit it was probably due to hype, no dice for me /a/.
>>
>>11294463

Oh. You have shit taste. No wonder.
>>
(FLCL)>GL>E7>Evangelion>Macross>Turn A Gundam>Geass

I think most of them are great watches, anyway. Except for Geass.

saging for lack of love in this thread.
