    ROW ROW FIGHT THA POWA!!!!!
    I first watched this anime when i was 13 years old, i'm 18 now and i still really enjoy watching it! Gurren Lagann has become my favourite anime of all time. I can literally say it has helped me transition from a boy into a manly man with gorgeous pecks. Gurren Lagann is life.

    ROW ROW FIGHT THA POWAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The drill that will pierce anime boredom!!!
    What can I tell you that you haven't heard before! Over the top, checked. A man's anime, check. An anime without brains, check. Full of action, check. I guess I can tell you that the story really picks up after episode 8 and doesn't let you go. Do you need to fully utilize your brain while watching it, no but the story is pretty consistent and thoroughly entertains. Why is Gurren Lagann a must? ...

    Essential Anime Viewing
    There are few anime fans that haven't seen Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. This is no accident! Series follows the age-old plotline of a hero gaining strength through adventure. BUT it's on its own level thanks to the undeniable quality of its writing, action, humor, heart, characters, designs, artwork, animation, music, and pacing.

    At just 27 brisk episodes, you'll feel like ...

    All the feels, more than I had anticipated
    I thought Gurren Lagann would be a goofy boys show, although I knew it would be well written. What I didn't expect was the bold moves in character development and relationships.
    The characters I expect to be shallow became deep and the ones you think are bad or good are always proven to be just people, and all people need our understanding, and sometimes a punch in the face.
    There were parts ...

    The Greatest Series of All Time
    Gurren Lagann is quite possibly the greatest animated series ever made in the history of humanity. It has great romance, amazing action, unforgettable characters, and animation that puts all cartoons and anime to shame. The storyline itself is quite slow at first, as it doesn't really reveal what a drill symbolizes. It shows all of the characters grow both physically, and mentally throughout the ...

    I seriously cried at the end because it was so amazing.
    Let me just say, I am on of the harshest raters out there, and I gave this a 5 star. It is absolutely beautiful.

    There is so much to like about Gurren Lagann. The character development is outstanding, and pretty much the basis for the plot. The metaphors are AMAZING (I seriously cannot come up with any other word), and leave me questioning human existence, and where evolution will lead us. ...

    one of the best craziest animes I've ever watched.
    You need to watch this! If you like FLCL and Kill la Kill you will fall in love with this great show. the animation is great, it's funny, sad, romantic, and total craziness all rolled into one kick [email protected]@ anime. I've already watch this show 3 times and it's still great.

    Just remember to check your brain at the door and enjoy the ride.

    Mere words cannot describe Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, only watching it will do it justice...
    But here's an honest try,

    Gurren Lagann is far more than what anyone just starting out can imagine. It is an anime that excels in all aspects of what makes a show truly entertaining, and drills on far beyond that, straight to your soul. If you're looking for an anime that kicks reason to the curb, and does the impossible, yet still has a deep meaning behind it, then Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann ...

    My personal favorite
    Gurren Lagann is incredible, and I didn't even realize exactly why at first. I started watching it for the crazy animation and cool fight scenes, but I didn't realize until I had finished the series that this show has the most inspiring characters of anything I've ever seen. Period. Kamina and Simon in particular are so resolute and determined that you can't help but remember their advice, long ...
