    An Abosolute Masterpiece
    This is the best anime I've ever seen. I'll be real here, I didn't really start getting to anime until the end of last year (this show is the reason why). When I was younger I grew up with Toonami, but I never ventured out and looked for other shows. The only thing I followed was Naruto and that was it.

    A friend recommended Gurren Lagann to me and I decided to finally watch it. One of the best ...

    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.

    A show that sets itself apart from the rest.
    So i recently was reading a post about someone saying that they haven't watched TTGL yet cause it looked like just another mecha anime. Well, that couldn't be any further from the truth. Apart from visually being amazing to watch with an original storyline, it's the ability to make you feel like you wanna kick some ass! Seriously though, i have never seen anything else that really manages to ...

    Absolute Nerdgasm, this will make you a believer.
    Ok, so there are lots of reviews on this, and some near the TL,DR category.

    Here is a brief list of why you should watch it.
    1) Memorable Characters
    2) Over-the-top Mecha Machines
    3) Insanely ludicrous galaxy-spanning fight scenes.
    4) Character deaths that will make you cry like a baby.
    5) Diabolical way of emotionally drawing you in to care and believe until its too late to ever see ...

    The absolute best 600+ minutes you'll ever watch
    Never have I watched something that has captivated me more than Gurren Lagann. I've watched it 8 times now and it never gets old. It has most certainly pierced my expectations and my heart. Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. This series is the series, that has reached the vault of Heaven!

    More than just mecha
    This is a mecha anime. Obviously.

    But it is much more than that. It is a story of inspiration, love, dreams, and leadership. It is a show unlike anything else out there.

    This is the drill that has pierced the heavens.

    Gurren Lagaan Changed My Life!
    Gurren Lagaan is probably the most influential anime on my life! First anime that brought tears to my eyes ಥ_ಥ... I became emotionally invested into these characters and I feel that I grew as they did. I know it is just a cartoon but a quote by Kamina still resonates with me.

    Don't forget. Believe in yourself. Not in the you who believes in me. Not the me who believes in you. Believe ...

    A thrilling tale of perseverance, dedication, responsibility, and personal growth
    At first blush Gurren Lagann seems to be a lovingly animated, highly energetic action series wherein robots so gigantic as to border upon ridiculous duke it out over the fate of the universe, but it's a good deal more complex than that.

    The series establishes a completely self-consistent universe with a minimum of exposition, weaving a story of a young man who must grow into his role in the ...

    By the end of the series...
    You'll end up wanting more. Yes, Gurren Lagann is that good. I saw the series a while back through Netflix and from episode one I was hooked! This anime has a great story, great soundtrack, even greater action and awesome memorable characters. I highly recommend it.

    One of the greatest of all time
    There are a number of classics that every anime fan should see and Gurren Lagann is at the top of the list. After rewatching this series for a fifth time, I figured it was finally time to add to the hundreds of existing reviews on it just to reinforce a simple statement: this anime is one of the best to ever exist. It’s become one of the most iconic anime(s) of all time and for good reason; ...
