I have finished episode 4 and so far this anime looks... dumb? Especially with the whole butt eating in episode 4...

Is the whole show like this or it does get better?

Does it get worse after eppisode 16?

Because after all the hype I heard for this show, I was expectling something really cool! But somehow it took me ages just to watch those 4 episodes...

Well I heard about tragedy in episode 8, so I guess I'll stick till episode 10 for sure. Then will see... but so far, not impressed one bit... kinda have similar feeling as with Haruhi...

The beginning (1-7) is more comical and kiddish than the rest of the series. After episode 8, it really turns epic. I loved the whole thing though. My favorite series by far. Watch it for yourself, though I liked the second half more than the first.

Well I'm at episode 13, I guess I'll finish off all 27 episodes... but most of the time it seems too unbelievable... so far I give it 7.

This show was meant to be unbelievable. It IS Gurren Lagann. It defies the laws of physics and that's why it was so damn cool.

Unbelievable?! AN ANIME!? UNBELIEVABLE!? Who would've thought, right?

Anyways, I gave it a 9.

I'm not done but I know how great it is and it's only getting better.

Damn right. This show is a way of life. It should be a religion. A kicking ass one.

Unbelievable? It's a Super Robot series. Super Robot series are never meant to be realistic in any manner. Sad you don't understand this genre at all

My opinions towards this anime until now, it's still rated as the best anime ever made on 2007. Love the concept and designs. If I'm not mistaken, they're referencing the concept from Totem Poles. More heads = more power = more badass and bigger. Brings the concept of 'gattai' to a whole new level!

This show is the definition of epic. In my dictionary, it actually reads, TTGL.

I watched most of Gurren Lagaan with my friend (who's seen it through 5 times) and episode 6 was very awkward. Otherwise, it is one of the greatest anime ever created.

HOLY CRAP why didn't I watch this earlier!?! I think it was because back then in '07, I was completely blinded by Geass... anyway, I've never really used the word "epic" before for an anime, but I'll have to use it here -- Gurren Lagann was so damn epic, I have nothing else to say.

10/10! And if Kamina had not died, I'd give it 1000/10... but then again, if he were still alive, TTGL wouldn't be half as good (just wished he had more screen time near the end) :/

I'm glad people are still realizing the epicness that is TTGL.

the more and more I think about this series the more I love it, it's childish in the sense that it's super parody of super robots, but in the end it's beautiful as a parody but also as a stand alone story by itself. It isn't defined by the fact that it's a parody it uses the notion of parody and builds this incredible story, that seems to forever swell. The only thing I would critique with this is that eventually all the "main" characters end up dying chivalrous deaths when in fact some of them should have died in more desperate times, more darkly but then again it's parody format does allow it to push certain themes to the maximum like Kitan accessing the spiral energy. The bitter sweet end continue to pulsate through my mind and I can't help but love this series, from it's music choices to the amazing characters, everything about it is amazing, the subtle hints of Nia's knowledge of the futility of defeating the big bad. It reminds me that something don't have to be happy, although the closure to me is painful because what i define as happiness is not achieved in this series, I still love it's ending, even though it doesn't match my world view, that's the mark of a great movie/piece of art, the ability to make people connect to it even when the people that connect to it might disagree with the ideas presented.

Hope people still want to talk about this series because I have to admit with out TTGL and this weak anime season I don't see why people shouldn't go rewatch this or discover this.

I love how people are still discovering this series because it is one of the best animes I have seen and shouldn't be overlooked. Glad you liked it my friend, now watch the movie(s) Guren-hen(okay with a few extra scenes) and Lagann-hen (The ending is epic as hell).
