I am not gonna lie to you.... This Anime is stupid and ridiculous. And its probably the best anime I have seen in a very long time. The story is about a boy who finds a tiny little green drill thing and he uses this to pilot a small and funny looking face mecca. The story does take some very interesting turns and will keep you on the edge of your seat waiting for the next Vol.

I do have to say that this Anime has a vary good pacing, meaning that things move somewhat fast and you wont find yourself listening to countless episodes dialog over the same stuff.

And if you don't believe in this review believe in me who believes in this review. XD

It's a phrase that you will hear quite often in Gainax's latest television series. You probably remember them as the creators of Nadia, Otaku No Video, Gunbuster, FLCL, and Evangelion. Their new series is all about kicking reason to the curb....literally. Take everything that you loved about giant robot shows like Getter Robo, Voltron, Gundam, or Macross and multiply it by a thousand.....no make it a million. The cast of characters are instantly memorable after a few episode and animation is spectacular throughout the entire series. The story keeps progressing forward at a quick pace with action in nearly EVERY episode. It doesn't take itself too seriously and after watching it you'll know why it's one of the greatest anime series' of this decade.

This is not an anime for anyone who thinks anime should be stern, serious and deep. Gainax has outdone themselves this time; Gurren Lagann has all the wild creativity, fanservice, humor and passion that has distinguished this animation house, except this time they've turned it all up to eleven. The elements are familiar enough: spirited shounen goggle-boy, gorgeous bikini-clad girl with gun, post-apocalyptic world where humans live underground in fear, giant robots, et cetera. Gainax even retraces the themes of some of their own previous releases, and pays blatant homage to a number of prior anime. Yet somehow all these elements form an unpredictable series that rarely lets up. Certainly not everything makes sense in Gurren Lagann, but it doesn't have to; the ferocity of the characters is enough to enthrall and captivate. The animation (with the forgivable exception of Episode 4) is top-notch as well. This is completely worth seeing.

even though this series is ...... i can't even think of a word for this series i watched it last year with some friends when he had to search for independently subtitled copies and all i can think is the sword that keeps going in either episode 2 or 3 and don't believe in yourself, believe in me who believes in you!

i would definitely suggest to everyone to at least check this one out

Delayed...Has this been released yet?
That's what I've been wondering about. I sent Amazon an email but the person who replied didn't seem to know anything and basically assumed it would be shipped by the 26th of March. Kinda blows because I was really excited about getting this, not to mention they've already taken my money for it :T

Has anyone recieved this DVD yet?
Yeah I'm waiting as well. Those pulls on the website happened a while ago before this delay on Amazon, so I don't know what's up. All I know is that February was supposed to be the release month as shown in the trailer floating around Youtube, and when I called Fye on March 1st a guy there said... Read More

Runtime 25 min?!
Movies can run to 125 minutes, right?

Well, I don't really understand the technology of resolution and compression, but I'm no HD-snob.
