Don't you mean best anime never made?

I'm sorry.
>>
>>117421321
Close but I can think of a few better ones

The story was too convoluted to be called perfect

I'm 2 episodes in at the moment. Really good art direction or something. It's very planetary.

This was one of the few shows where episode was better than the last. Usually there's a dip here and there, but for Giant Robo it was

7>>>6>5>4>3>>2>1

And the moral of the story is:
CHECK YOUR MESSAGES.
Listen to the entire message.

The soundtrack is definitely a 10/10.

Giant Robo

Thanks!
Going to give this a shot tomorrow

I went in thinking the MC was a tomboy, I was disappointed to say the least.

I mean great everything from it, but I can't say I liked it because it disappointed me.
>>
>>117421321
Nope. Maybe if it were finished, but it wasted too much time setting up for a sequel which will never happen.
>>
>>117424011
It's the "The Empire Strikes Back" part of the story.

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.
>>
>>117424459
The number of cool characters and designs that are never really used pisses me off. Like pic related, or that Gold robot which appears in every op but doesn't appear anywhere else.
>>
>>117424701

It's just Imagawa going full fanboy, creating a huge love letter to Mitsuteru Yokoyama by incorporating as many elements as he can from his combined works.

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.
>>
GR is definitely up there for me. It left me wanting so much more.
>>
are you me op?

I have some friends that I marathon GR with every 2-3 years since like 97. We love it.

Half of those watching don't like anime outside of GR.
original dub ofc
>new dub was severly lacking

TTGL was the hypest shit ever. If you don't like it that pretty much guarantees you weren't watching it with /a/.
>>
Love it dearly to this day. Art, OST and the grand story ooze a feeling of love for the medium and genre. Still get goosebumps when I hear the Big Fire theme. It's like the Imperial March of animu.

Thanks to TTGL I can't enjoy mecha anime anymore, since they all seem stale and boring in comparison

Anno actually did key animation for Giant Robo, and probably drew inspiration for the Ramiel scenario from the big black sphere one.

>>117421321
This shit was the stupidest thing ever.

Can someone explain why the dad scientist couldn't just leave his son a note? Like "hey man, this is what this shit does. Don't go killing others alright!"

I still love it but man most of the shit got on my nerves. The chick was hot though.

Finger snaps guys was the best.

I assume everyone in this thread is talking about the OVA version right? Also, are the TV version and the OVA separate continuities?

>>117433859
Yes.

Yes.

Thanks.

Some are though really.

>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.

>>117421321
The mecha for people who hate mecha.

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.

Sadly, it'll never be made.
>>
>>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.
>>
>>117437362
>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.

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.
