>>133771396
I personally thought 2 and 3 were probably the weakest episodes but if you don't like it don't watch it.

If you want to watch it because it is popular it is only 24 episodes and you are pretty much a quarter of the way through that.

Everybody can say that for every shows.

Keion tries way too hard to be cute, which is typical of KyoAni.
Monogatari series tries way too hard to have good dialogues, which is typical of NisiOisiN.
The Tatami Galaxy tries way too hard to be artistic and unique, which is typical of Yuasa.

What about saying something relevant?

Y'know, I realize its overrated as fuck, but few things do give you the same pumped up feeling of "FUCK YEAH" as Gurren Lagann does, although it does happen. I think part of the reason its so popular because it literally is babbys first adrenaline rush in anime.

The first half was 10/10, second half not so much. Especially the ending felt like they where running out of ideas.
When all the Gurren Lagann members died at the end I didn't care at all. None of them got any worthwhile character development.

>>133774739
Not that it matters either way, but the movie retcons those.

Although it doesn't work perfectly since Gimmy goes through his "I don't want to die like Jorgun and Balinbow" speech when there is zero motivation for him to do so.

Because their deaths left no impact. and I obviously wanted the character development before those scenes. It's just stupid to try something meaningful that's supposed to get a strong reaction out of the viewer when they have done barely anything to justify any strong reaction.
I didn't give a shit, those overly dramatic scenes where just wasting my time and it pulled me out of the action.

Fixed the grammar, and no, it doesn't try to hard since it succeeds at doing so without trying "too hard"

>The Tatami Galaxy tries way too hard to be artistic and unique, which is typical of Yuasa.

>>133771222
Code Geass had a lot of flaws though. Mainly R2, like really it was a trainwreck and if it didn't have one of the best endings ever it wouldn't be remembered so fondly.

Gurren Lagann is far less imperfect because it knows what it's trying to accomplish, sets out to do that and only that, and achieves them spectacularly.
But because it puts all of its focus into a relatively narrow range of appeal, it's understandable why many people just don't like it or get hooked.
>>
>>133771396
If you're not exaggerating about it being the worst you've seen, then keep going, it's borderline episodic for the first bit, but the climax with Lord Genome halfway through is GOAT. Keeping in line with the spiral theme, the show starts small and slow and continuously builds without really every stopping until it becomes astronomical.
>>
>>133779324
There was nothing wrong with his grammer, stop trying to look smart. Dialogue is a noun, and is properly pluralized as "dialogues".

How about admitting that you just don't like Gurren Lagann, rather than it being inherently bad?
Opinions on anime are not objective, I've met plenty of people who hate K-On yet like other moe shows, and I personally hate the Monogatari series, even despite enjoying other Nisio works.
>>
>>133779324
>completely missing his point
>those things don't count because I like them!
The point was that it's a completely fucking meaningless statement; it says nothing and is just a way of saying "I don't like this thing" while trying to pretend you have actual reasons beyond that.
>>
>>133770777
easy, Gurren Lagann

fuk...
>>
>>133779420
A lot of the so-called flaws of Geass even in R2 are relative and mostly "I/we don't like this" or "I think crazy stuff is bad" rather than actual problems with the show. Not all, but several. The fact it has such a great ending actually makes it not a trainwreck at all. It breaks the definition in half. Lelouch was also still a great MC even before that point.
>>
>>133779420
>Gurren Lagann is far less imperfect because it knows what it's trying to accomplish, sets out to do that and only that, and achieves them spectacularly.
If you think Code Geass doesn't know that, then you don't know jack. Literally. Like all the morons who never bother to look beyond their noses, when the creators explicitly told the public that it was going for entertainment, period, and that over-the-top and unrealistic stuff was a-ok to achieve that.

Anon, stuff being fucking off the wall retarded being bad is the norm. Liking it regardless is fine, but pretending that the entire plot being a fucking joke isn't a flaw is just silly.

I gotta rewatch GaoGaiGar sometime soon, but I'm not the kind of person to skip to the Finale on a rewatch, but fuck if the original series hasn't aged. I didn't notice it that much when I was first watching it because I was juggling it with Code Geass, so both were keeping me enthralled while letting me power on through, but I dunno if I'd be able to sit through 26 episodes of MotW until it gets crazier. Maybe I should rewatch it drunk or something.

Also the fucking Goldion Crusher is probably one of the most insane things I've seen in mecha.
