Casuals don't watch old anime and would call Gunbuster boring because there are 3 episodes of build up and crying.
>>
>>13872872
I'm no casual and Gunbuster kinda sucked.
>>
>>13872536
Mostly fun, enjoyable show. Nothing special or revolutionary though.

Gurren Lagann takes all the things we love about super robot shows and executes them really well. It's honestly one of my favourite mecha anime and I don't see why it isn't held in high regard here.

>>13872902
I hold episodes 1 to 15 in pretty high regard.
It went full retard after the timeskip.

I would put anime in my top anime list.

Speak for yourself, asshole. It utilizes some of the most garbage aspects of mecha, and poorly at that. It's absolute trash, and there is no denying that.

If we're still pretending that Gunbuster is good, then yes.

>It's honestly one of my favourite mecha anime and I don't see why it isn't held in high regard here.

For the most part people don't like the fandom. It does a certain thing and it does it well, but a lot of people treat it as the end-all be-all of anime. That said, I never understood why people are so fast to judge a show based on the fan base rather than its own merits.
Also hipsters. /m/ seems to have a lot of people who hate things simply based on popularity

No, it doesn't.

H-How can you think Aim for Ace isn't good?
>>
>>13873886
Get over yourself. /m/ was all over GL like a fat kid on cake when it was first coming out, constant weeklong threads about each episode. Then it more people learned about it and it became a moderate hit, then bam. Posts like yours started showing up.
>>
>>13873903

That has literally zero relevance to me or the fact that TTGL is bad. The fact that /m/ had shit taste back then and continues to have it now is completely irrelevant. It's also not a good idea to make baseless assumptions against someone who dislikes a show.
>>
>>13873893
>>13873855
It's Gunbuster but not tongue-in-cheek.
>>
>>13873903
Yes, because people who didn't like the show totally didn't have to take time off from /m/ just to avoid the constant masturbation to it.
>>
>>13873944

Don't get your point. Are you implying Gunbuster is good because it's being le ironic about the way another show, or something equally as stupid?
>>
>>13873954
Yes. Also Gunbuster was open about its humor. Gunbuster is the ZZ to Ace's Zeta.

Whatever floats your boat man. My issue is with the guys who have only seen like one or two other mecha shows before TTGL and then mouth off about it being the best of the best while refusing to even try any other shows in the genre.
>>
>>13872536

I like Getter Robo as well.
>>
>>13872536
Eh, I disagree. I've watched the series and the movies and both were a mixed bag.

The series starts badly, starts getting progressively better and more interesting around the middle, and then has a fairly underwhelming finale.

The movies rush through everything from the first 20 episodes and just concentrate on making the ending as jaw-dropping as possible. They succeed in that aim but taken as a whole they aren't a fully satisfying experience.

It sucks that they cut out so many of the quieter, character-focused moments from after the time-skip in the movie. For me that was the best stuff in the show.

I really don't know what other people think about TTGL, I generally don't read threads about it.

I guess I should clarify what I mean a little though I found the first arc very tiresome because for me Kamina was an incredibly annoying character. Once I reached the end of the series, I understood why those episodes had to be there - his character plays a huge part in Simon's development and the audience needs to feel that.

In retrospect I found I hated his character less, and I even felt moved when his memory was invoked towards the end of the series. But when watching the first few episodes I seriously almost dropped the show because Kamina became so tedious so quickly. I wish they had found a better way to portray him. If they had managed that, and included all of the extra stuff from the second movie in the show, it would be one of my favorites.
>>
>>13874063
The act of hating Kamina is completely illogical to me. My brain can't even process it. Please explain in detail how you could dislike a character designed from every angle to appeal the kouhai instinct in every young male.
>>
>>13874097
He's a one dimensional character who espouses the same hollow "lmao be manly" philosophy with every single line of dialogue. It's literally all he says, over and over, for like 8 episodes.
>>
>>13874103
In the second episode he confronts his true feelings concerning death and mortality, and is even forced to come to terms with them.
In the seventh episode he has a monologue about how the only thing he can really count on is Simon.
In the eleventh episode this same conversation is expanded upon to tell a different story than the one Simon told. It acts as a reinforcement of his monologue in episode seven.

He's loud and he's overconfident, but that's really not as common as you'd think and Kamina is a pretty rare character despite how generic he seems coming off of American action movies. He acts kind of like Go, but Go had different motivations and a brain between his ears. He acted sort of like Guy but he forced Simon to stand up for himself and Guy was just sort of cool with whatever effort Mamoru could or could not put forth. He acted sort of like Domon, but Kamina was a lot warmer.
>>
>>13874124
I've never seen a character in a western movie/show that acts like Kamina. To me he seems very standard for anime, which is why he was disappointing in a stand-out series like GL. There are tons of friend characters in anime who generally just say the same kind of "dude you gotta be a man!" stuff over and over again, it's a cliche.
>>
>>13874135
He acts like Tom Cruise in every Tom Cruise movie but without the biting feeling that he might actually be insane.
>>
>>13874138
>He acts like Tom Cruise in every Tom Cruise movie
That's a pretty silly thing to say. He doesn't even act the way that Tom Cruise acted in his most adolescent male friendly movies like Top Gun, let alone stuff like Collateral, Eyes Wide Shut or Magnolia.

That bothers me more than OP thinking most of /m/ cares about his unsolicited opinion.

Oh and Gunbuster 5 > Gunbuster 6
>>
>>13874182
I don't even remember what happens in Gunbuster 5 tbqh.
>>
>>13874206
Big last line of defense from the swarm approaching Earth.

6 was the B&W episode where they went to the Galactic Core and killed Jupiter.
6 is pretty damn good, but 5 is a better thematic resolution to most of the story progression, it's also a hell of a lot more visually pleasing with the color.

There's a quote out there suggesting that to work in B&W is sorta like taking the easy way out to make something appear more "artsy" for less effort than trying to master the colors. I think a lot of people get caught up in the B&W and the "feels" at the beginning and end of 6. That in turn leads a lot of people to dismiss 5 as being silly in comparison when it's really (at least in my view) the more impressive installment.
