I've seen it now. Certainly reminded me so much of TTGL. Blade is like Kamina while Cruz is like Simon. But I highly prefer the TTGL ones.

It was an interesting and enjoyable episode for me. It's too fast paced though. But well, it's the usual GAR shounen I guess.

I like the blonde boy. Seems cute and he's somewhat like a magician? *a sucker for magicians And Cruz's sister . . . I blame Code Geass C.C. for making me attracted to green haired women O_O

Well, that was about as subtle as a swift kick in the nuts and as confused as Sarah Palin in a bookstore. But it was sort of fun. One thing can be said for certain based on 2009's offerings - TTGL is surely one of the most popular viewing choices for animators and character designers in today's anime industry.

That ED... I hardly know where to begin. A lesbo-tacular of galactic proportions, with just about every fetish you could ask for as long as it involves underage females. Where the hell that comes from after watching the actual episode I have no idea, but I'm not one to complain about such things.

Which is exactly the best mentality to take after!
The ED is spectacular in its own rights which is amplified due to it having nothing to do with the actual series (or at least now anyway).

Good to see more people watching and liking this now that it's subbed.

Wow this series is actually pretty good, if you switch off your brain. I'm going to keep watching it. I didn't read the manga, but it seems that the series isn't taken itself that serious and it looks like it is making fun off gernes which are (currently) popular.

Anime's pretty cool. It's like Guilty Gear(hard rock music, strange "weapons") crossed with TTGL (character designs & GAR level) and s-CRY-ed (strange phenomenon that gives people super powers). I sure hope the kid grows some balls and starts kicking ass. Blade is Kamina on steroids, Eve is a cross between Jam and Milia. The ED, was unexpected, but by looking at the OP, maybe those three girls are actually ONE entity, or can combine into one. In the OP, right after they appear, they show some strange creature with three glowing red eyes. If thats true, that would at least explain why they can't keep their hands (and feet, and boobs, and mouths and butts) off each other.

I think a bit too many people are givign GL a bit too much credit here.. you know considering this manga came out 3 years before Gurren Lagann... and the character designs, archetypes and actions are exactly the same in the anime version.

Not to mention that we've seen the 'week boy main character saved by manly man' formula oh so much over the many years.

Anyway, here's another person who absolutely loved the first episode. It was the right level of over the top, mixed in with the Shonen genre, making this such a fun ride. I can see the people who didn't like this first episode are the ones who aren't that big on the genre, so that's understandable, though for people like myself, we'll eat this up completely.

Also looks like that i have my Takehito Koyasu show for the season. He hasn't done a role like this in a while, so it's a good come back. Gotta love the hidden in joke that he's called Adam, and Eve's name.

It's no surprise that Sakoi Masayuki is directed this. It has Kamen no Maid Guy written all over it.

Well true about the TtGL over credit part but you see Lagann had this charm that kept people (in Asuki at least) on referring them all the time when a manly show pops up. People should’ve referred other hotblood anime characters like Domon’s G gundam or Kazuma’s Scyred or Guilty Gear that came out before manga Needless. But like me, super robot TtGL had somewhat set a new benchmark for people to refer too.

Maybe Jam but definitely not Millia. So far character wise Eve is shown as a douchebag, kinda like Jam. Maybe the C.C loli girl will be Millia-esque. Who knows?

Anyway storyline wise we’re having an evil gigantic Resident Evil-like pharmaceutical company Simeon constructed over Black Spots and is hunting for Needless. Who or what these Needless’ are will probably be explained in later eps. My guess is they’re mutants produced as direct impact from WW III’s radiation weaponry….or maybe from Simeon.

Ability wise they have X-Men like powers, Adam Blade: Mimic Zero whatever, Eve whatshername: Doppleganger, Yellow dude: Spider thread, Cruz: crying and being useless. And about the lesbian girls well I don’t think they’re actually one seeing some of them had different weapon styles, but that’s also speculation I guess.

The most wtf moment I had besides the ED, was Adam picking a grenade out of his bible or book lol.

It was a bible and you've just reminded me of what this series remind me of. Hellsing and Blade is Mr Anderson

Just imagine that grenade in his bible as he screams "AMENNN!" and purges all evil heretics with that manly/psycho grin! XD

I second that

But seriously for shounen and GG/TTGL rip-off it was actually enjoyable, at least it kept me awake last night, while after the ED, I decided to have a drink out

By the way to whoever was surprised a couple of pages ago, because this show was animated from MADHOUSE, should I remind him Maido Guy

The Needless manga started in 2004. So if anything Gurren Lagann would be the rip-off, but it's not. There's no such thing as a rip-off with these two shows, because the similarity is so damn tiny, there's no connection between the two shows.

& like i've already mentioned, they're both by the same director.

I had in mind the animation style, not plot ... it's too early to judge, but plot-wise I can speculate that they will diverge

Why is that at all not surprising

So why not say that in your original post?

Dunno, I thought it was obvious since one predates the other.

But a lot of people here don't know that, plus i had no idea if you knew that so just calling it a rip-off is going to lead people the wrong way in terms of judging your original post.

So you called it a rip-off in terms of animation? What that makes no sense at all.

I think all it comes down to is whether it was an enjoyable episode, and I have to say I enjoyed every moment of it, even though the style is blatantly similar to TTGL.

She is like Millia in the super power department: shape shifting. Millia shape shifts her hair, Eve can shape shift her body.
