It's a mecha show.
Ya and it's usually just Boota (this little pig like creature jumping into her boobs). and that only happens like....3 times.

there is one hot springs episode but it's not really THAT bad.
especially compared to everything else out there

so whats all the hype about the fan-service? Im sure that one big-breasted girl (i think her name is Yoko has plenty of scenes showing her "assets" but Im used to normal fan-service in anime, but I dont like ecchi stuff or when it's Everywhere....u know what I mean)

anyways? how bad is it? or is it all just a bunch of hype (i know how it can be, people see a hot char with big assets and their like ZOMG FANSERVICE EXPLOSION) but I was just curious before I delve into this series.

thanx!
This show has more mecha fanservice than female fanservice. In fact the only true female fanservice comes in just Yoko. There's one hot springs episode and that episode is the only episode with that much women.

This show is extremely biased against the girls, they are all sorts of unfortunate. This is an extremely manly show, infact brotherhood is the theme and becoming a man is how it progresses.

Then you ask why is there a girl just in there for fan service?

Answer is that this is GAINAX, the one show that started it all. GAINAX was the first studio to have bouncing boobs in anime as fanservice in all history.

So it's really not as "overdone" i suppose as people are saying.
they make it sound like her breasts are popping out every 5 seconds

Well, for 95% of the show she's in bikini or something skimpy, that's her character design anyway lol

And GAINAX take their famous GAINAX bounce very seriously, so Yoko being the latest bearer of the bounce has to be very bouncy.

Well, she's the only one showing fanservice, so its nothing much to worry. Other ladies do get a few screens of bounce but they appear very little compared to the men.

Even the female lead herself appeared only one third through the story.

I figured it was just people going TTGL crazy, im sure it's a good show, but I doubted the "fan-service" levels people were putting on. which is good for me

Not sure.... Probably will be a few months yet before the DVD is released. Only then will we even start to see fansubs coming out.

Um.... I can't remember how long the movie is, but it definitely is NOT 24 minutes. I think it is.... two hours? I think...? o.o

I've heard differents opinions on it... both good and bad. I guess it is up to the viewer really...

One such "review" that I have often read, however, was that the beginning felt very rushed and the ending was epic. lol

Spoiler for Movie Scene:

So if FLCL was a spin off of Gurren Lagann, then Atomsk would have been a spiral warrior or a former Anti-Spiral who did not agree with their look on spiral energy. And Atomsk would like to steal solar systems which is why he is called a space pirate. If anybody thinks that, let me know.

Can't seem to find any post regarding this around here. And this thread seems to be the best place to put this too.
Well, enjoy the out-of-context comedy. I loved it to bits. Since when was Itou Shizuka this good at doing kids?!

Alternate ending. Gainax was basically going with the flow of things with TTGL.

I just watch Gurren-Lagann on Animax-Asia and i was little disappointed since they didn't use the Bandai English dub but Animax Asia own English dub team. I don't know why but i bet it was to tone down the potty language(I never seen the Bandai English dub so i'm just assuming) and they change "Who the hell do you think i am?" to "Who do you think i am?".

It was a nice anime to watch but i still think this anime is just too silly for my taste though.

My real name is Simon, so I guess that makes me awesome? Other then that.. This is the best anime I have ever seen and I donīt think anything will beat it in the near future.

It just delivers too much epicness, awesomeness and manliness to ever be overcome

I think you should check out some other Super Robot shows. After all, Gurren Lagann was a homage to all of them, from the 70s all the way to the modern day. If you liked Gurren Lagann, you'll definitely love them. Getter Robo was one of its main inspirations, with the Getter Rays definitely influencing the concept of Spiral Energy. The currently airing Shin Mazinger is also good, being a reimagining of the classic Super Robot show that jump-started the genre.
