KLK's second half is, so far, miles above its first.

Wait until the show is finished before comparing it. It's entirely possible for it to end up better than TTGL at the rate its going.


Really? I had written off the series after a few episodes as too ridiculous to ever really shine. Maybe I'll try to get back into it if it's picked up so much.


the ridiculousness and over the topness is exactly what makes it amazing

I agree that TTGL's first half is better than the second. I'd even say I may have liked the first half of TTGL better than I liked KLK at first...but only slightly. However, I think KLK's second half is as good as its amazing first half.

At some point TTGL just got too ridiculous too fast and I didn't like the whole "where did that come from" and "well this is getting rather alarmingly uncomfortably big" feeling toward the end.

KLK starts off ridiculous, and gets even more over-the-top, but the progression feels more natural, rather than happening in huge jumps.

For me, that gives KLK a slight edge in the preference department--at least right now. It's not over yet and I guess it could get even more outrageously big and ridiculous and then it would probably be a tie.

TTGL can't be beaten!

KLK is really good! I find it entertaining, and interesting, but TTGL made me laugh out loud, cry, and experience every emotion in between. I just can't say that about KLK!

Kill La Kill is really cool, but come on... we're talking Gurren Lagann here. One of the all time greats

Gurren Lagann because of the characters, motivational speechs and all the epic moments, although Kill la Kill is funnier atleast

Shows are too different to be a fair comparison. They are both great in their specific ways. For me Gurren Lagann = Epic action while Kill la Kill = Entertaining creativity. Gurren Lagann told its story through some amazing emotional scenes while action sequences that were mind blowing and cool. Kill la Kill uses more comedy and hilarity in story and action to emphasize its epic creativity.

I think Kill la Kill was created to specifically to stand on its own rather than live in the shadow of Gurren Lagann. I get the impression that was the purpose of the creators to make something that was not just another Gurren Lagann. That is why I believe a comparison of the two is not valid or fair. BOTH are epic shows in their individual strengths.

Both are amazing shows even if your protagonists went from bros to sisters. The action, vibe and fast paced fights made for great shows of both of them.

I love them both a lot.

I like the story and pacing of kill la kill more, but there is just something about gurren lagann, the music, the ending, the unparalleled epicness. I'm not sure what it is, but it just edges out Kill la Kill.

I think the twist story was better in Gurren than it was in Kill la Kill
