I'm not a fangirl.

& Gurren Lagann is absolutely cliche after cliche, but it works and it's amazing.

I've never seen an episode of Naruto, so I'm not sure whether what you've said is correct or not. However, seeing as how it's a shounen series, I'm sure what you've said is true. That's what shounen series are like.


Im proving a god damn point. It's cool to hate naruto now so people do. Right now its cool to think this series is the best thing in the world...give it 6 months and these same people will have a new one to hound over...its pathetic. But seeing as how youve seen monster (which im sure 98% of the peopleposting here havent) I'm slightly inclined to not put you in the same grouping.

dude the losing battle thing then a miraculous burst of power to win isnt just exclusively used for naruto...almost all protagonists in action/fighting animes use this pattern...becuase if it doesnt happen..the main character dies...which wouldnt make much sense would it. I personally think TTGL was amazing, the artwork was great...alot of distinguishable character personalities.....simon showed great development from a wimp to a leader...kamina and kittan were pure awesome...they didnt make yoko a pass around chick, witch happens in most anime's. for example yokoxkamina>>yokoxsimon. And i bet alot of people thought that it would happen like that until Nia showed up lol. It had alot of great things in it and deserves to be credited.

it had alot of cliche moments..sure...but they pulled it off with alot of yelling, emotion and warped animation to make it and epic cliche!! The music played a great role in that imo.

No. That doesnt happen in all anime. Now i can see perhaps it happening two or three times in a series but this happend EVERY episode...its ridiculous.
Lets Take DMC for exmaple Dante owns everyone in that show hands down every episode that clearly shows it doesnt work that way ( DMC was still a horrible show)
I was using Naruto as an example seeing as how its the most popular anime on this site.
In fact Most mech anime do not follow that trend.

& that bothers me. I can't say I hate the series because I have never watched/read it. I don't feel that a person can claim they hate something if they've never watched it. If anything, I'm indifferent to it.

I see this a lot within the jrock community. One moment one band will have armies of rabid fangirls, and then another, younger, shinier band comes along. I'm definitely not one of those people. If I say I like a band, I do and I'll love them for years and years. It's the same with anime. I'm not someone who gets into something because that's what's 'in' at the moment.

:) Thank you very much.

Unfortunately I have to disagree with you. The show didn't make her relationships with Kamina & Kittan a secret. Admittedly, with Kittan it was a bit more subtle, but there was the kissing scene as well as showing her dream about wanting to get married to him. And with Kamina, they nearly had sex (I believe she was 14 or 15 at the time). The only reason why they didn't go through with it was because Kamina died.

Not to mention there was a short time when Simon wanted her and it seemed Yoko had some feelings for him as well.

i think TTGL was an awesome anime...but im not so inclined as to say its the best of all time...alot of people thot code geass was the best of all time..you know...until they got to the actual ending and was like..WTF...alot of people thot NGE was the best anime of all time....im still fuckin confused after watching that..lol...there is definetely a fad craze over anime because most of the time..something better will come out that will grab peoples attention...im just saying that TTGL cliche as it may be...was great regardless of the crazy power-ups in each episode...which i think u exaggerated a lil bit on that. What else is the underdog of the anime suppose to do besides getting stronger...Dante owned everyone cuz he was already l33t as hell

And there were her outfits...

I'm so glad nothing happened between Simon & Yoko. Speaking of which, did it ever say how old he was in the beginning of the series?

You know, something that is cliche can also be good. Gurren Lagann wasn't anything ground breaking, it's not perfect, and it follows hell of a lot of stupid shounen cliches, but you know what? It was fucking awesome to watch. I haven't enjoyed a series so much ages, and I expect to have to wait a while before I do again.

Yes, to new or Naruto-obsessed anime fans, something like Gurren Lagann is probably the most epic series they've ever seen. And Gurren Lagann is an amusing series and it deserves some attention, just not perhaps... their attention. Gurren Lagann being treated like another overrated mainstream series is the least of my desires and would suck, but it deserves it's popularity. I've never touched anything related to Naruto-related in my life but I still found this series epic and amazing. I consider myself to be a rather experienced anime fan who has watched enough anime to know the cliches through and through, but Gurren Lagann really was something special to me. I know it's not the best series ever, but for a shounen series, it's damn good and refreshing.

Regardless of whether you actually liked it or not, you have to admit that Gurren Lagann has fresh and well-done animation that is nice to look at, and the music interesting in the least, (oh come on, how many other anime combine opera and rap and make it sound ok?) It had good music, animation, and crazy colorful flashy mecha. These factors alone are enough for some people.

Perhaps if Gurren Lagann had aired last season the hype would've been less, but as the only really popular hotblooded action series, it's had nothing to really compare with besides stuff like School Days and Lucky Star and etc.

^ When I first came across your username a while ago, I instantly thought of this series, and was extremely disappointed when I saw a post of yours where you said you took your username from Haruhi.

as far as yoko's relationships were concerned..from an objective standpoint...she didnt fall in love with every guy that had feelings for her...she sort of avoided the fate that happens to some female anime leads....as far as the kissing scene goes...thats still questionable it could her just indulging in kittans last minute desire, or that she has actual feelings for him....the the marriage scene could be more or less a possible reality than a dream..anything more than that is pure speculation....crazy dramatic love triangles are bad for my stomach anyway so yay that TTGL didnt do too much of that

Lol, well, now it has a double meaning, it's just that Gurren Lagann wasn't as big when I picked the username. Viral the character is cool, though, and his theme song is badass.

And I don't think Yoko's relationships are meant to be deeply analyzed. She's a hot doombitch-- that's all there is to it. She has great tits, great aim with her gun, and every man she kisses ends up dead. But anyway, it seemed like she really feel in love with Kamina but also liked Kittan. She may have even felt a bit of affection for Simon, but that sure didn't last. And she always liked Kamina the most, of course.

She fell for two out of the three guys who liked her.

Did you watch the show? They both had feelings for each other.

i'm 3 eps in... and i'd say it's very similar in style to FLCL, except with mechs.

it's like FLCL meets Getter Robo.

The ending was QUITE POSSIBLY the most epic and greatest action ending ever, and everything is summed up so well. did i mention how EPIC it was. ultimate pwnage. they have officially raised the bar for action anime for me and the future itself. anyone who's undecided about this anime yet i highly recommend it. :)


haha im editing just to write another paragraph......... i just love the fact that it constantly has a f.u. mentality during the whole series and is in a positive light the whole way through. 10/10 lol
