This week’s Gurren Lagann Parallel Works belongs to artist SUEZEN, and it combines the instrumental track BafBaf! Sonna ni Moeru no ga…Suki Kai? with video of Viral and the others playing a Gurren Lagann themed pachinko machine. It’s an amusing watch, though I still like last week’s more, both in song and in accompanying video. It’s hard to beat “raw! raw! fight the power!”

I just rewatched the series, I hadn't done a full rewatch of the series since 2007. Just like back then, the series was epic and beautiful in every sense of the words. The feeling this series gives me isn't often felt in anime, or even movies for that matter. "Believe in yourself, not in me who believes in you, not in you who believes in me. Believe in yourself!"
So, has anyone rewatched or watched the series for the first time recently? I got some staffers into it recently, would be cool to hear your opinions guys.

Ooh, I'm here, I'm here.
Well, so far, I've only seen three episodes. Slow me, yeah. But I kind of enjoyed my own pace watching this series; as if everything comes at the right time and speed. So far the first three episodes are a good laugh; I totally like how epic win or fail Kamina and Simon could be. Especially where the name of Gurren Lagann comes from.
Graphic artwork might not be very special, I like it so-so. I also quite much like the soundtracks; rock, hard songs come at the right moment of comeback or fight thus making things more pumped up. But the side background musics are also great for calmer situations. ^^
Three episodes and I sense a romance there already. *laughs at Yoko and Kamimna* They are totally... like, I can't imagine them being together yet. :3
Nice, keep it up, phio!
The animation and artwork isn't outstanding in every episode. The most important episodes are given the best treatment, obviously. I thought the first had great animation and artwork, after that it's a little less outstanding for a few episodes during the plot building episodes.
The music is superb, you'll fall in love with its epicness in due time, just wait.
You people have put me in the mood to re-watch TTGL now. Thankfully I have the whole series on DVD, I'll have to watch over the course of the week. Shame that it is not available on BD yet, I'd buy them in a heartbeat.
Easily one of my favorite anime ever. I love the big, bright, loud, manly spectacle of it all. The characters are amazing and memorable, the plot interesting, and the animation is outstanding. I've said it before but it feels like Gainax intended TTGL as both loving tribute and stinging parody of all things action and shounen. Every trope used in action-shoune are here, only taken to the most logical extreme possible.
I finally finished the series today. Amazing ride along the 27 episodes. Various feelings mixed, very dynamic: from happy ones to the sad ones, but there are also motivating parts of it which I really like. I feel as if this story is done in full power with all the effects, destruction, characters, and deaths. It was very sad, but it adds a great 'taste' in the story. It feels natural and real because sacrifices would have to be made and there we have everyone betting their hope on Simon and his drill and trying to save the future.
A great journey, I can't say anything else. As the brigade always said, "Who the hell do you think we are?!".
Worth the watch!
