Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is the most unrealistic anime of all! No! It's the truth! Objectively seeing the anime because I'm no fan of mechas makes me say "WTF!" in each episode of the series. The story is pretty straight forward and very easy to follow so forget about the plot - No freakin twists until you go to the second arc of the show. Unlike Durarara!! which ultimately declined to the second season. Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann peaked of the charts when the second half of the anime begins. I can't tell how exactly I felt but there's burst of emotions in the anime. Which is Good! Let's summarize what's the good and the bad about it using my favorite lazy way of bullet lists.
- If you're a big mecha fan you'll most likely it! There's the favorite transformations of course and the action is there in the episode.
- Yoko is so damn Hot! Yup! She got big boobs and her outfit is the most inviting of all!
- So much character development! Which I totally like! Kamina disease is infectious so after you watch the show you'll get pumped up. Believe Me!
- Variety of characters - Too much badassness of the characters. I can't say it here cause it would spoil you just trust me on this one.
- The music themes are great! OP song and Ending Song as well as the background music! You can find rappers on the show.
- The last part of the anime is great! It was unbelievably good! It's surpassing heavens!
What's Bad about Gurren Lagann?
- Bad Mecha Designs, it's nowhere near Gundam, the cool part is only Gurren-Lagann and it's transformations the anti-heroes and protagonists are just mehhh!!!
- Animation too is inferior. Believe me, the animation in old Evangelion is much better
- It doesn't have something that will keep you at the edge of your seats unless it's the final episodes of the show but the remaining ones are blunt. It's like, "Episode 1 is good next would be episode 2-- ok cool". The episodes can stand up on it's own and it doesn't have the factor that would make you play the next episode. It pales in comparison to Death Note or Kuroko No Basket
So that's it! Overall Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is awesome. It's perfect for everyone! even mecha fans will appreciate it. Too much emotion and positivity of the show. I highly recommend it for kids and shonen lovers. Score of the anime will be pretty much an A.
