    PIERCE THE HEAVENS WITH YOUR DRILL!
    If you haven't seen this series, then YOU SIR, ARE LIVING UNDER A ROCK! From the masterminds at Studio Gainax, the makers of the legendary Neon Genesis Evangelion as well as other hits like FLCL, Gurren Lagann tells one of the most compelling coming of age stories combined with gorgeous artwork and vividly animated mech battles. And rest assured, if you are a junkie for the super robot genre or ...

  • One of the best things I've ever seen in my life!
    For me - it's perfect! Awesome story, awesome characters, awesome setting and a lot of deep themes! When I watched it I cried like a little girl at the end, it's very emotional. I don't know much about art and animation styles, but I liked it a lot. And it's amazing how it can go from sheer sillyness to something very deep and important. Therefore, I highly recommend to watch this! You will NOT be ...

  • Stupid and it knows it, which equals fun
    Gurren Lagann is ridiculously stupid and illogical and it knows it, which of course works it its favor. It knows that it isn't a deep character study with a rich, deep fulfilling plot, so it fills most of the episodes to the brim with beautifully animated kick-ass action scenes, though the show has its share of faults. It takes a while to really pick up, at least it did for me. It was only up ...

  • Pierce the Heavens, Gurren Lagann
    I want to begin this review with.... THAT WAS EPIC, JUST EPIC. Gurren Lagann is so simple, a little silly, very awkward and finally, it is epic. I just can't explain what it has that makes you watch episodes continuously with no pause. Yes, this is the story of a man who finally finds his destiny. Characters are so simple yet so memorable. I think one of the main points of this series is that you ...

  • The Greatest Anime The World Will Ever Know
    Warning : Fanboy Meltdown Inbound

    When it comes to the best animes of all time, only one series is in the running. Only one series rises above all others and claims the spot. That anime is Gurren Lagann.

    From the thrilling, blood pumping, manly action and speeches it's impossible to not get pumped up from this anime. It was the first I ever watched and I will forever maintain ...

  • Over the top Anime Great from start to finish.
    This show is everything I expected it to be and then some until my expectations were tuned on its head and everything I assumed about it going in was wrong and I couldn't be more pleased about that surprise. It is over the top and grand but I have to say the direction it when in for the messages and themes of the show was almost poetic in a way. Without giving anything anyway it left me extremely ...

  • A Fantastic show I recommend!
    Oh Kamina, how we all admire you, even Simon. The two main characters that are basically like brothers. The adventures and craziness that happens along the way drills through the steep hill they fall down for a couple of episodes towards the end to go through heaven into _ _ _ _ _ (<--- If I literally put this word in here, it'll spoil it lol)

    I'm sure you could tell it's about ROBOTS ... with ...

  • ROBOT FACE BATTLES!!
    See above. Robot Face Battles, gorgeous art style, second season is distinctly different yet interesting. And those final couple of episodes are just ridiculous. To be honest, I also just like the first episode as a stand-alone short, and think sorta the mid section of the first season sags a bit in the next-biggest robot face of the week structure. Opinions!
