Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann

Thanks to hunch, I recently discovered the anime Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, or just Gurren Lagann, which I have really been enjoying.

Gurren Lagann is, at its heart, a mecha anime and, as anyone who knows my love of Transformers and Battletech will understand, that is a plus in my book. The art is great and the battle scenes are just awesome. On top of that, there are some pretty great characters in the show; I am especially fond of Kamina. Also, Gurren Lagann has already run its full 27 episode course, which means that I can watch it and enjoy a degree of completion, which is a thing that I really enjoy being able to do.

As far as anime series go, Gurren Lagann is the first one that I've seen and really enjoyed since Trigun. I wouldn't say that Gurren Lagann is not Samurai Champloo caliber but it's certainly worth hunting down and giving a shot.


I can't seem to remember if you're a fan of FLCL or not. I thought you were. Studio Gainax did both FLCL and Gurren Lagann. If you like both of those, you might like some of their other anime works too.

I am definitely a fan of FLCL but I wasn't too intrigued by Evangelion and I don't know much of the rest of what Gainax has put out.
