    Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann



    Info:
    In the distant future, people build their homes and raise domestic animals in subterranean caverns. As a result, they live in fear of the occasional earthquake and cave-in, and have been for hundreds of years. Jeeha is one such village.

    One day, a boy named Simon happens to find a small, shiny drill whilst digging to expand the village. At the same time, Kamina, a guy who believes that there is another land above the village, persuades a gangster to break through the ceiling in order to leave the cavern. Suddenly, an earthquake occurs and the ceiling collapses, followed by a big robot breaking through the ceiling.

    Kamina is now sure that there is a world above them. Recklessly, he begins to fight against the robot. At that moment, another person appears from the land above. It is a girl by the name of Yoko. With a rifle in hand, she had been tracking the robot. However, all she could do was distract it. Then, Simon shows what he had found to Kamina and Yoko. It`s a mysterious robot whose head is also its body.

    It's good but it's more akin to power rangers I think.

    I can't believe what happened in the episode 24, It's more tragic than the episode 8

    EDIT: Wow, chapter 26 is EPIC! Best chapter of Gurren-Lagann. One episode more and this epic story going to end. T_T

    gurren lagann is the show of 2007. A show that made my scepticism in a feeling in which I was nervous every week to see next episode. Awesome, awesome, epic you can say

    And to end gurren lagann is the serie with episodes: good -> better -> best -> perfect

    Re: Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann

    haha, if it's award by polling, i doubt it'll win, cuz despite being a great show... as you said on the first post, most of non-mecha lovers (especially super robot genre) won't appreciate the show

    yeah, it's kinda sad that the show is over

    haha, the fiery moments in this series sure make it worth of 1.000.000 times of rewatching...

    i really like the way the BGM really fits in most scenes... be it epic moments, calm moments (like in the first episode, where the three of them fly and spinning in the air, and we can see the scenery of the surface), or sad moments..

    and there are too many epic speeches that burn my spirit

    -do the impossible, see the invicible... ROW ROW FIGHT DA POWA!!!-
    -touch the untouchable, break the unbreakable... ROW ROW FIGHT DA POWA-

    now you're officially been gainax'd

    Re: Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann

    One of the best anime I've seen in awhile. Seen every episode and up until the end got better and more WTF in a good way. Not in a long time has a show made my bllood boil in way that only something that hits home can. And I'll admit the ending made me almost cry.... almost. Tere is a chance it may win btw, cause if I remember correctly Eureka 7 (another great anime) won best anime couple years back. I personally love mecha but any anime that has great plot, characters, story, original points and keeps you on your toes itching for more I'll love like this.

    Re: Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann

    I re-watched this again and again, I can't get over it. This is getting better the more you watch it. Btw I loved the anti-spiral mecha voice, the dialogues, etc...

    There's still some story, the spiral nemesis (I wonder if they'll make something about this - an ova or something or did it end for good).

    Spoiler show


    Eventually, helix king was a tool of the anti-spirals and somehow anti-spirals remind me of the helix king. They were the helix king but on a greater level. It's all about the destruction of the universe which I can understand that it brings out fear (anti-spirals).

    Man this serie is more philosophical than you can ever imagine. I could discuss and talk a lot about it

    Re: Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann

    hahaha
    and fans should never miss trivias, right?? here are some:
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    Simon's name comes from the word shimo (下), meaning "below".
    Kamina's name comes from the word kami (上), meaning "above".
    Yoko's name comes from the word yoko (横), meaning "beside".
    Nia it can be read as near, but it's also based on the ani (兄) kanji of aniki (兄貴), a word for "older brother" with which Simon refers to Kamina
    Rossiu's name comes from the word ushiro (後), meaning "behind".
    Viral's name comes from the word "viral", and also "rival".
    Boota's name comes from the word buta (豚), meaning "pig"


    Thymine + Sylph = Thymilph
    Adenine + Undine = Adiane
    Guanine + Gnome = Guame
    Cytosine + Salamander = Cytomander

    names in blue are the personal ganmens

    Thymine, Adenine, Guanine, Cytosine are four of five nucleobases that composed DNA

    in DNA base pair, Adenines are paired with Thymines (lol, that's why Adiane and Thymilph are best buddies)

    And, our DNA form is helix
    Spoiler: pic show

    i guess the name "Helix king" or "Lord Genome" isn't just for show huh?... and add "VIRAL" to that
    heh, that;s gainax for you, they don't pick anything without proper research

    sorry if that makes your head SPIN ON hurt...

    -the pic is taken from wiki ...-
