Eureka 7: better than GL
THE MOTION PICTURE
I care more about the thoughts of house plants than I care about E7.
Naruto: complete shit, but better than GL
Any episode of Eureka 7:
Renton: I'm a wimp!
Eureka: I'm not human!
Renton: let's baw together!
Other: wow, they really love each other, and what a horrible time to be living in.
Other2: they just have to believe in themselves.
TO BE CONTINUED
i liked it better when it was called NGE
I prefer Eureka 7 girls to GL's at least.
i liked it better when it was called gay emo shit
E7 = my third fav anime ever TTGL = 4th
/a/ - Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann
I agree. Both are good, but E7 is stronger story wise.
both are good, but I like TTGL way more for the epic.
Wouldn't have it any other way.
Both were stupid LOL IM BECOMING A MAN kids shows with robots. Prefering shit over piss is not hard to decide.
they should be mixed into one anime
the result is this
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 love Euerka 7 and GL with a strong passion.
But there was no plot-twist at Gurren-Lagann and only fags hate the ending.
No Simon I AM the savior of mankind
Which would you rather have; the Second Impact or The Summer of Love? Would you rather be working with people named Fuyutsuki and Ritsuko or with Stoner and Moondoggie?
I thought fags liked when women died?
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.
eureka 7: show targeted to 12 year olds with 19 year old substance.
ttgl: show targeted to 20 year olds with 12 year old content.
That something pretty obvious from episode one. Lord Genome was no different from the elder of Jeeha village.
Both are good. Stop trying to make shitstorms that don't need to exist
I couldn't stand either. Dropped both after five episodes.
Enjoy your robot shows made to sell toys to 12 year olds.
You're pretty much failing in here. Both are shows targeted to children with simple content but a great thematic delivery. And I was starting to respect you, too.
It was probably too deep for you.
Posting GL and E7 art to counter tha fail
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!
Code Geass > Eureka Seven > Gurren Lagann
Eureka 7 had bad pacing.
You got that backwards.
Gurren-Lagann > Eureka Seven > Gundam 00 > Code Geass
The question is: Overman King Gainer better than E7?
That's no twist. They reveal the Anti-Spiral was no different from Genome in episode 18...
“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.
Maurice reminds me of Rossiu
I love E7 because it has my favorite stock plot twist:IT WAS EARTH!
HA HA We're dead
*Ace Combat Zero theme*
these are my two favorite series.
shit /a/, just shit.
Like your tastes, amirite ?
ITT: We give GL credit it doesn't deserve.
That's all for me. Not much but QUALITY.
ITT: Nostalgia googles on Eureka Seven
It's but a mediocre show with decent animation guys.
I've no idea what GL is, but E7 is probably my favourite anime-- the first I've watched where the plot carried through the entire series. :P and here's a pic of Gulliver <3
ITT: Nostalgia googles on Gurren Lagann
It's but a mediocre show with decent animation guys.
JAPAN SAID IT WAS GOOD IT MUST BE TRUE
Gurren Lagann = Eureka Seven, in terms of quality.
Tokyo Anime Fair agreed, don't bother them.
Angry anon on an image board said it is bad, it must be true amrite?
Yes because the quality of a show is subjective.
lol grade school logic. Quality of a show can be measured and judged just like a test or a car.
Entertainment is different.
Demonstrate that then.
Eureka seveN and Gurren Lagann are both excellent.
I like Eureka seveN better myself, but not by a lot. I can understand people who like Gurren Lagann better. These two rank amongst the most enjoyable anime experiences for me.
And those who think they're shit are fags
Study the arts, quality control, literature, etc. This is like saying the opinion of your doctor is equal to that of your dead beat neighbor when it comes to medicine.
the first season of e7 was unbearable for any creature capable of thought to watch. this includes animals and your mom.
Entertainment is a form of "art". It can only be measured on how much the individual viewers enjoy watching the show as that is its sole purpose.
Gosh, and here I was expecting numbers or such to back up your claims. Like, you know, how cars are tested and such? You know, statistics, and theorems? What a shame you're dismissive when asked to describe it, it makes me believe you can't really live up to your claims.
eureka 7 has the worst ending ever
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.
Eureka Seven is made of win. Enough said.
I doubt YOU can quantify something such as those, otherwise, you'd have demonstrated that.
That's why I don't give out awards. The pros do
>>eureka 7 has the best ending ever
Both GL and E7 have award winning character designs.
This thread is now about how much you ENJOYED either / both anime, rather than what you didn't like / hate about either / both.
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.
eureka 7 > gl
eureka > nia
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
SimonXNia > RentonXEurkea
I don't think it was a troll.
It was just some anon stating a simple, and widely acknowledged, fact.
But Gurren-Lagann is better than Eureka Seven, this ANN, MyAnimeList and AniDB agreed.
You came too late into the thread.
have never seen it, don't want a show with little kids for little kids
I think you got the thread backwards.
>Gurren-Lagann: Better than Eureka Seven
There you go, a fact.
>1 Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
GL and E7 made for kids who like to fap to men with no shirt.
you don't think GL was targeted at kids?
Have you ever stopped for a moment to appreciate how ridiculous you sound? Seriously, are you 12?
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.
no sir, its called burning manly passion.
>Eureka 7: better than GL
does not warrant 282 replies...
Eureka 7 sucks.
I don't see a shitstorm in here
If I remember right, E7 did win similar awards to what GL won this year
Actually, the dwindling in interest was due to Shitsen's faggotry near the end of the series.
Exactly. It's just GLfags and E7fags saying, LOL GUYS, OUR SHOWS WON THE SAME AWARDS, LET'S CIRCLEJERK AND CALL GEASS SHIT LOL.
I think you mean Nanashit. Shinsen never subbed E7
but Geass is shit
its because 99.9% of the watchers of Geass watch it for CC
Are you saying it isn't shit, boy?
I like my noodles in my soup not in my animu.
you're wrong because you're a faggot
>its because 99.9% of the watchers of Geass watch it for FABULOUCHE
/a/! Your making me not like you anymore!
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/.
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.
bump for no reason
