I thought it was kind of hilarious how each episode added another layer to the audience's view of the past and you slowly realize Vogler probably wasn't bad and then when you finally see the whole message it's just a giant slap to the face. All of it could've been prevented. Hilarious, but sad.
I wouldn't call it the best, OP, probably not even amazing, but I did like a lot of things about it. The art direction and animation especially are probably what could actually be considered one of the best or close to it. The characters are also a strong point.
I would definitely consider this one of my favorite scenes of anything I've watched.
I felt like the second half was lacking in something though. Maybe a little more depth? The first four episodes gave so much time to the The Experts of Justice, but most of The Magnificent Ten weren't given much besides the ones shown in the first half of the OVA. I did like seeing everyone's super powers though, that was cool.
So, yeah, it's good, but not the best. In my opinion, of course.
Yeah, I was kind of disappointed almost none of the robots in the OP were ever shown in the actual show. I just assumed it was kind of like a prologue sort of thing that's probably detailed in the manga, but it was still upsetting.
>this thread >ever bringing up TTGL nowadays The people who vocally like it are the fags who blindly love it as the best thing ever, and the people who dislike it, well, hate it. No one reasonable ever talks about Gurren in these threads in a "I like it but acknowledge it's flaws" kind of way. Still love it.
>>117425211 Giant Robo didn't sell well and barely finished the Vogler story arc, but if it had there would have been at least another OVA about Big Fire that would have drawn on even more Yokoyama manga before culminating in a grand finale.
>>117422813 It had a very Wagnerian sound to it like a lot of classic adventure movies and "genre revival" films from the 1980s, IE Star Wars or Indiana Jones. I don't think enough works are scored like that anymore.

Just one? It was supposed to be a seven part story, where The Day The Earth Stood Still was just the penultimate one.
>The OVA would be preceded by "The Birth of Zangetsu the Midday," "The Plan to Assassinate Daisaku - the Canary Penitentiary," "The Boy of Three Days," "The Greatest Battle in History - General Kanshin vs. Shokatsu Koumei," and "The Boy Detective, Kindaichi Shōtarō, Appears!" The final chapter is titled "The Siege of Babel".
I wish the one about Koumei could have been made. Koumei aka Zhuge Liang.
