    Animation-wise, the style of Gurren Lagann is pretty unique. Hiroyuki Imaishi was the Director on this and several similarly animated series: Dead Leaves, FLCL, and Kill La Kill. All also very good series, BTW.

    The show is completely over-the-top. Larger than life, even. Just when you think they couldn't go any further or do any more, they do.

    It's a show about coming of age. It's a ...

  • Just started watching.
    I can't believe I just started watching this show a couple of days ago! Gurren Lagann is a really unique anime where the show starts off in an underground world. The main character Simon finds an abandoned Gunmen and drills his way up to the surface into a whole new world he is yet to experience yet. I'm only three episodes in so I can not say much more about this anime yet other that it is great!!

    Holy shit, what a ride.
    There are many epic moments here, ups and downs too. Some characters will stay with you forever. Show just blasted through my top 5 anime of all time. Makes me regret that I din't watch it sooner.

    Seriously you need to watch this show. Recommend binge watching.

    WORDS CANNOT EFFIN EXPLAIN..
    Hot damn, God damn, holy shiitake mushrooms. This is truly a work of anime masterpiece. The plot is (on the surface) a typical case of a lowly boy finds power, becomes a man and save the universe then everybody is happy at the end type deal. But that is the only thing is has in common with most other animes. The character development is superb and the personality changes that happen on the show ...

    Indescribable, anime at it's best
    Gurren Lagann is the best anime to have ever existed. Never have I deeply felt so much genuine emotion for the characters and the story. This anime is a drill that will pierce through the heavans. Who do you think Aniplex is? Tengan Toppa Gurren Lagann, I will never forget you.

  • Fight, fight, fight the power!
    Yoko was just all over the place, leading me to this anime (it's a shame only people that have watched this know the other characters). From living in fear to...piercing the heavens, this anime really inspires watchers. Even thought it's only 27 episodes long, the fast forwards, from Simon as a kid to when he's (presumably) an old man, and Yoko's flashbacks, it seems much longer. By having just a ...

    Average, but Decent.
    Having only watched 3 episodes, I don't know much about the story or the characters but I feel as if I've already been through the entire story given how predictable everything is. This anime is halfway decent if you're into the whole reclaiming the earth theme, and if you like Action orientated anime. They use typical cliche's from the start of the series to try to get you to feel something for ...

    Believe in me that believes in this anime
    This is a non-stop action packed anime with lovable characters! The main character, Simon, has tremendous personal growth from the first episode to the last. If you liked Kill La Kill, you will like this, and vice versa. The animation is also colorful and very enchanting.

    This anime was amazing it took you through the sad moments and the happy ones it showed that to get anything you want it takes hard work but of course none of you care about that it has giant galaxy throwing sword slashing rifle shooting robots kinda reminded me of gundam except better with a bitter sweet ending if you like any of these things then watch it *cough* hot spring scene *cough* i'll ...

    An emotionally charged adventure!
    The basic premise of the show written in its description only covers the first episode or two. There are all sorts of high-octane adventures after that.

    The show changed radically over the course of the two seasons, so much so that by the end I could not believe how far it had come. I did NOT like the ending. Some people may like those types of endings, but I don't. Much of the show is ...
