Most people vote ten for everything (seriously, look at all the polls!). It's usually a "do I like this show" or "do I not like this show" mind-set, with people giving a show a ten if they like it and not voting at all if they don't care for it.

It didn't really come full circle, Simon never turned into Kamina, which is in essence who "Garlock" was. Don't bring up eleven's speech, Garlock was his own man and an imitation of Kamina - it was in his own style. And it's not like the kid really cared all that much about Simon's help, there was no "soul brother/parent" relationship between the two.

Captain Harlock > Getter Robo in my mind. Robo was a kid's show, albeit a fun one that went a little insane with the OVAs, not unlike GGGF. But Harlock is a classic larger-than-life romance story, the upper tier for writing when it comes to shounen. One Piece is but a pale derivative of Harlock and Dragonball.

I quite agree. But Gainax has such a notorious history with endings fans of their work made up the joke "LOL GAINAX" to refer to those bad ends.
