Why did people hate the space arc?

I literally thought it was some meme until people I trust more than /a/ started saying the same thing. I always thought the first half was kinda boring and disjointed in comparison.

>Muh no Kamina
>Muh Rossiu is a dick

Literally who watched this show for the characters?
>>
>>138713845
More like the characters ruined the show.
>>
>>138713845
The space arc was good because of how loose and fun it was. Seeing how the characters change, especially in Rossiu's case, obviously, is what made the space arc being a lot darker more impactful.
>>
>yoko

>"You...are just a pair of fucking tits."
>>
>>138713845
I hated the over all second part.

does same shit as nadia, putting fucking pairings everywhere without thinking on the cool factor.
Yoko with big tits remains virgin forever because main chara its a fagg that cant move on from his waifu.
Literally becomes the same genre as the other gazzillion boring mecha animes.

The first part felt quite original but the rest, I just lost compelte interest, specially after Kamina died and flower eyes was introduced.
>>
>>138713845
The first part with the political themes was a complete change of pace. A lot didn't like these episodes.

But the actual space part was the natural progression of the series. If you do like the first half, why wouldn't you like this?

>>138713845
First part where they were just having fun taking down the Beastmen was fun. Second part just didn't feel right, can't really explain why it sucked.
>>
The first half of the second part was just boring and forcing drama between characters. The space part was good because it felt like the first half of the series again, like they were fighting for a cause together.

Pretty much that, the first arc was unique.

That "power of friendship" parody was so well done that you could actually believe that crap.

The first episodes (until episode 8) was from an anime that's still my favorite. The rest felt was the typical japanese drama with its "x person died, but will forever live on our hearts"! Lame.
>>
>>138713845
Because it's boring, the gritty super robot action is replaced with red laser blue laser beam spam, the cool villains are replaced with dumb angel wannabees until Antispiral shows up in penultimate episode, all the supporting characters die in a conga line of pointlessness, it's simultaneously rushed and yet little of consequence happens in each individual episode.

I don't hate it mind you, but it's still a step down.

Yeah, yet people kept wanking and jerking on it for years. Until the dust settled so now they wont go like raving idiots.

I always tought that Viral should had gone with the blonde with big tits to make a Vegeta reference or some shit like that. I reckon his kid would had been pretty cool looking. But then again I have noticed that gainax when it comes to time skips they just throw everyone randomly or without much tought. Rather than thinking it as an equation to obtain a badass result.

Part 2 battles and soundtrack where super boring, and the only remarkable one was the battle of planets but even then I felt apathy and more like an obligation to watch it. Also chalk guy was hilariously pathetic and ridiculous.

This is why I hate timeskips without proper planing, fuck DBZ did it and it worked because Tori tought on the cool factor like "it would be cool if this guys had a kid because the kid would be like this and that and the interactions would be fun etc...

I said it back when the show was airing, and, having rewatched, I still say it now: episodes one through eight of TTGL are about as good as super robot anime gets. Everything afterwards is just Gainax going through the motions because they've got nineteen more episodes to fill.
>>
I liked it. Once they jumped the shark and just ran it into the ground it just felt gratifying to watch. I was entertained.

Part 2 was easily what killed the show for me until the middle of the space battle. Yeah, Part 1 did peter down after episode 8 and ended up being a bunch of typical long-term powerup shit, but Part 1 really capitalized on seeing a story through to the end in a set amount of time. TTGL Part 1 made me think that if your average anime season was 15 episodes instead of 12, it would be much easier to tell a story since it would allow for more "flushing out" and actually following the Hero's Journey system perfectly despite being in parody. 3 extra episodes really helps out more than most people would think.

What was cool about Part 2 was that it toyed with character longevity: even our matured heroes can't last forever, so what happens then? That was cool for a whopping 10 minutes until veteran characters actually started dying one by one. Other than that and the battle, Part 2 is a mess of "muh emotions" that doesn't really do a great job of sticking to parody or homage, and that's still a fair amount of episodes to go through before you really hit the meat & potatos.

I will say that despite all criticism, it still deserves a lot of the praise it gets since it fucking RESONATED here for years after it initially aired, even after the internet explosion the year after. The 10 year anniversary of TTGL is upon us in a year and 16 days. That might be an interesting day.

Why did Rossiu put Simon to death? Why didn't he just put him in jail or demote him or something?
>>
>>138719135
Because that's how he learned things should be in that shitty village where he grew up.

He's just an idiot who forgot how they got that free world in the first place.

You do all realize that the whole point of Kamina's character is to inspire Semen and everyone to grow balls, than die right?

And even though he was an unbearable prick you wanted to strangle (Along with that cunt with the glasses. Man, why are characters who wear glasses in anime usually cunts?), at least he was sorry.

>>138719185
>Because that's how he learned things should be in that shitty village where he grew up.
That's a load of fucking shit and another example of how the writing in the second half is retarded.
>Rossiu's village operates under the idea "sacrifice a few to save the greater population"
>Simon's actions destroy some of the city but stop the invaders
>Their weapons would literally have done nothing without Simon, and the alternative would be for everyone to die
And then some fucking retards actually have to gall to say "Rossiu acted that way because it's in accordance with his upbringing." No, it's completely against it and out of character.

>Yeah, just like how people had a riot with KlK and everyone here loves it, right?
not really. It certainly had a big fanbase, even here on /a/, but ever since like episode 2 or 3 the "Trigger will save anime" meme has changed to "Anime is ruined", with a lot of people only staying on the ride in the hopes it gets better.
It was different with Gurren Laganns space arc, there was never doubt(aside for the moments i mentioned)
>>
The only major problem I had with TTGL (which ruined it for me) was that there wasn't a single good character in the show outside of minor ones like Viral and Kittan. The entire cast is just there to support Simon as he practically solos the universe itself.
It took the gattai part of Getter Robo, but really failed to make the other pilots just as strong as Simon and use teamwork to bring down the final boss.
>>
>>138720004
>It was different with Gurren Laganns
It absolutely was not. It was the same shit where a million retards flooded the board while the show was airing, and the people who actually lurk /a/ and watch anime can see past the drummed up hype and recognize the glaring flaws the shows have.

10 threads of people screaming "Fucking Rossiu!" don't mean people liked that arc, and a bunch of 14 year olds screaming "Its so epic!!!11! They're throwing galaxies!" don't mean the action in the space arc was better than the first half.
>>
>>138720116
>and the people who actually lurk /a/ and watch anime can see past the drummed up hype and recognize the glaring flaws the shows have.
there will always be retards, that is you, who bitch about everything, it's not those individuals the OP is talking about. He didn't say "why do some people" or "i have heard here and there", he generalized "people" as in "everyone" or "the majority", and he apparently heard it enough for it to sound like a meme.

They started pulling out stupid bullshit like "probability altering missiles". The first half wasn't realistic either but the worse it pulled out of its ass was the prospect that fighting spirit could fix broken robots
>>
>>138715681

A character that initially exists as a contrast to Simon and Kamina. She appears as the sign of the 'outside world' with her vastly different clothing and active personality and outlook, but is restrained in her actions, whereas Kamina and by extension Simon are wild and play by no rules. She settles past this role before becoming a love interest for the two, potentially causing the actions that lead to the mistakes that caused Kamina's death.

Later, she acts as a sort of deuteragonist with Simon, where she manages to function better than him without Kamina, but is still hurting until Nia can get the two of them to make up.

Post time skip, she was the character who didn't settle into the life of decadence once they had triumphed, choosing to follow a dream and leave her old life behind, showing another contrast between her and Simon. When it all starts going to shit, she arrives to save him from a pit, just like at the start of the series


In short, she's the original foil to the main characters, whilst still remaining one of them

Did Yoko die a virgin? She seemed to be too much of a prude for that before meeting Simon and Kamina, literally nothing but a kiss happened after meeting them, and she still had 'he will always be in my heart' syndrome after both timeskips,just a little more accepting.
>>
>>138720702

ayy

She was seriously wasted, she got literally one thing that was cool in the space arc which was jailbreaking Simon
>>
>>138720755
>She was seriously wasted
As was every character post time skip outside of maybe Kittan, Viral and Genome for a total of 13 minutes.

Depressed, forlorn gazes into the horizon while sighing and mumbling a few words doesn't make for mature and interesting characters when the writer ignores all prior characterization.

God Yoko is such a fucking waste. She literally exists for fanservice and nothing more.

my main complaint about TTGL is the fact that the majority of the characters don't matter at all

like, who matters? kamina, simon, rossiu, nia (plot device), yoko (plot device), kittan and viral

but that's like 1/3 of the characters

you have this huge TEAM DAI GURREN waving flags and manning battlestations but none of them fucking matter, none of them get developed in any way. androgynous gay tech guy is always gay tech guy from minute zero to the end. am I really supposed to feel emotion when the fucking twin mongoloid dudes die in space? or some characters who I don't even recognize get blown up?

I understand you can't develop everyone to be super fleshed out but kittan and viral are the only real non-main characters to undergo any sort of character arc
>>
>>138722409
Nah, fanservice is great if done properly. Take Kill la Kill for example, the fanservice isn't just relegated to some retarded side character. Hell, it even serves to further Satsuki's characterization, showing that she literally doesn't care about how slutty she looks because she would do anything for power.

TTGL had one good character.

KLK had maybe 2 good characters.

So yeah.
>>
The only episode I hated was that fucking Yoko episode. Simon gets sentenced to death, the moon is about to kill everyone, so let's have an entire episode dedicated to some retarded toddlers dick around. Who the fuck approved that? Yoko wasn't an important character in the second arc because she wasn't even in half of it. Why did she need an episode?

>>138722404
It's hard to say KLK had a better plot seeing as they tried to redo Eva, but worse.
>>
>>138722518
To be fair, the entire show is based around Simon and his coming of age, just like every Gainax production about young boys. Also, the show is a huge homage to every robot/sci-fi anime out there so it makes sense that not everyone gets developed (except for Yoko in other ways).
>>
>>138722602
the movies actually made the issues worse, by taking already shallow character development and squeezing it down into 90 minutes

the movies improve the ending but that's it honestly

Because it was poorly written nonsense that relied on pretty colors and even bigger robots to try and keep the audience enthralled.

Not to mention the ending was atrocious.

It's funny but the only fix I can see for Yoko would be to remove Simon entirely. Because she was fine until he became the center of the universe and every other character just felt tacked on.

Yoko rejected him not once but twice.

The only good part of the second half were the battles in space and Kittan's death with the best song Libera Me From Hell

You have to go back.

She should have been a staple Gurren pilot, and has as much spiral power as Simon, along with Kittan.

I can't go back. I made a what I thought was a high larious post but didn't even receive a single like.

I started sweating and imagining all the people cringing realizing my post wasn't funny so I made a run to the shittiest forum I could find and now I'm here.

>>138723359
Simon is still Simon though, a nice guy. Her slut sense senses that.

Yoko is only into bad boys like Kamina and Kittan.

TTGL could have been great if Nui didn't exist. Dragged it down from a 7 to a 5.
>>
>>138724968
Vowels anon.
>>
>>138724968
I think that dub VAs pronounce English names the same way that the Japanese cast does because they don't want to be accused of overlocalization, e.g. calling Usagi Serena. In High School of the Dead, the dub cast pronounced "Alice" "ah-ree-SUE", which made them sound like complete idiots.

The entire post timeskip stuff is horrible beside the moon and the fight. It's fucking boring and unnecessary. Characters randomly swap personalities, nothing happens for whole episodes at a time, which is a problem considering there are only 8 of them, the plot is weird bullshit with the ring and whatever, and it tried to force feels.
Teacher yoko was hot though.

People hate the space part because like everything in the second half it was rushed as fuck and only existed to further the show's momentum into a spectacularly mediocre train wreck
There are potentially like two good shows worth of content crammed into those twelve episodes, but they're laced with shit like the suicide bomb fight, human Boota, everyone dying, or the ending and epilogue in general
>>
Wait there were nipples in the movies?
>>
>>138725978
Si.
>>
>>138726312
Is it worth watching them
>>
>>138726353

Probably yes, but I think no.

The movies miss a lot of the point of the series by just going with BIGGER. MORE EPIC. EXPLOSIONS. and loses the heart of the series, including fucking up the final battle
>>
>>138726353
Its worth it for the nipples
>>
>>138726353
Nipples are always worth watching.
>>
>>138721203
Nia was the bad part that got canceled out at the end.
>>
>>138726353
no, they ruin all the pacing and build up of the series and nia's tits are way too distracting in the final scene.

>>138715681
Earnest hard-working girl who is the only character capable of taking on a mech without using a mech herself. Wants a love life but the people she's attracted to and gets involved with are the type who die young, causing a lonliness she fills by bringing happiness to others (becoming a teacher). Very set on bringing good lives to the next generation, as you can see when she risks her life to overthrow the beastmen and when she became a teacher.
>>
>>138728072
She looked fat and flabby in the movie, honestly disgusting.

>>138728065
>A show entirely about the coming-of-age and growing from an immature child into a mature man

We have come to living in a time when /a/ and /m/ don't recognise TTGL references anyomre. Let that sink in.

They're like the first 2 Madoka movies condensed versions of the series just with a better budget, the fighting scene at the end of the last episode was extended in the second movie.

I think I did because I'm having a hard time believing there's a show without the characters.
>>
>>138713845
The whole second half was just mindless "we must go BIGGER" padding. And the writing turned utterly stupid.
>>
Kittan's giga drill break was the height of the series.
>>
>>138713845

IT was shit. Though was hype to watch with /a/ back in the day.
>>
I hate the beginning of the space arc, but when Simon and his posse go into space and say fuck everything was hype as shit. Reminder that the second movie is canon for the final fight.
>>
overrated shit
>>
Yoko is such a fucking shit character. Actually almost every character in it is fucking shit. The only good character is the Spiral King.
>>
Dropped it after episode 8. This series has not a single redeeming quality.(Or at least up to that point)
