  • Simply Amazing In almost every way
    This anime is shounen giant robo anime. In fact, it's a parody of the entire giant robo action genre and it does it better in every way.

    Very few anime are able to give off the same vibe they claim to be emitting, but Gurren Lagann does it in spades. This show moves fast and does what it wants. Possibly the greatest action anime in 26 ish episodes ever made. Seriously.

    Everyone needs to try ...

    Went into this show expecting very little. Got one of the best
    TTGL is 100% worth your time. I was hesitant going in because it was recommended to me by someone who had recommended me shows I didn't previously like in the past. He was super insistent though, so I succumbed and finally started watching it.

    After the first few episodes I was thinking "not bad, I guess" but as it continued on, I was blown away. There is a moment where the tone of the whole ...

    this has better ratings than i expected
    this shows revolves around one very amazing character that just happens to only exist as an emotion or memory. most other characters are flat and the plot is wild and the basically everythings is "tits up" and sloppy. it's not as fun or "witty" as other "action packed" animes such as attack on titan and other than ONE character these series becomes boring. 5.9/10

  • absolutely speechless
    I can't even form cohesive thoughts right now... actually though, I think I just wrote like 10 reviews and deleted them all because they didn't do this amazing work of art justice. if you're ever going to trust a stranger, choose now, choose to trust all these reviews and believe in us that believe in Gurren Lagann.

  • Crazy. Fun. Sad. Awesome.
    I love this anime.

    It's action packed and fast paced. The characters are lovable and the story draws you in. While there's lots of jiggling from Yoko and some of the other gals, I can look past that. It's just so damn good.

    Simon's character development takes him from being a lowly (literally) digger to a leader among men. Time and perseverance forges him into a warrior the likes of ...

    Nothing can a hold a candle to this.
    This is what turns boys into men. This is the most badass anime there ever was and there ever will be. Nothing else can flow so perfectly and flawlessly without making any sense at all. It would be unfair to compare this anime to others because it would exceed in every department.

    Believe In The You Who Believes In Yourself
    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 ...
