Needless: Needless to say, a fun watch

Post  Tekkaman Calamity on Wed Jul 15, 2009 10:32 pm

Initial Impressions: Gurren Lagann - Mechs + Lolis(Yuri lolis).

When I first read the synopsis I was initially unimpressed, but after reading reviews I decided to give it a try. Move over Canaan, there's a new favorite show in my Summer slot.

Absolutely no thought required to get into this show, pretty much everything you need to know about the plot is revealed before the show is half finished.

The real meat is of course the over the top presentation and the gags work.

As for the ED. It was great, but it could overwhelm the unprepared.

DOUBLE POST!
Wow, that was interesting.... I can't say it was the top of my list cause I do like plots with depth so CANAAN and Umineko are still my favorites but it's definitely interesting and....... BEST ENDING EVER!!!!!!!!!!!

Lastly where the hell is my Ichizon no Setokai? That was initially the only thing I was looking forward too until Thahn told me about CANAAN and brian told me about Umineko. Oh yeah and Umineko's intro is badass too.

Well like I said, it's taken top notch for me because I look at the show and everything works. The jokes and action, they are all well done. The characters are also appealing, take Adam Blade for example, most people carry liquor in their bibles, he carries a grenade.

I think Ichizon no Setokai got canceled or is stalled for another season.

Okay now that I'm pretty deep into this show, I can heartily give my approval.

Overall, the show is rather a bit slow at the start, but around ep 4 it really picks up the pace (except for 6 and 7 which were fanservice filler, but rather enjoyable). Despite the initial humor, it actually gets rather gets gory at time, but the studio keeps the level of violence to better match the initial impression (as opposed to the manga which gets bloodier and gorier from the initial grenade blowing off a guy's arm, not that this is bad mind you).

I find it amusing that they hired Minorin to play the part of a mute girl.

Also, I think I found a new waifu.

At the bottom of their shit hole they get pro reinforcements. Cliché but awesome nonetheless.
I'm surprised the strength pink haired girl was so readily affected by the gravity though I mean, it should counteract the effect more or less.
The ending is still awesome though.

Well, if you look at her expression, it would look like Mio-tan wasn't even trying to do anything in comparison to the other two girls. Or, the simpler explanation is just force of gravity>super strength.

I hear a new OP is getting ready for the 2nd cour, hopefully they'll keep Aggressive Zone though. That never gets old, no matter how many times I see it.

Frak frak frak frak frak, the mute said something! I'm just as shocked as the characters.

Otherwise it looks like this was where the budget for the previous episodes went.

You mean Minorin.

Well I was amused by her gasping sounds. At least it's not like Special A where what's her face probably went without a paycheck for like 15 weeks.

Okay got around to watching the new OP/ED, man they just can't compete with the old ones.

Scarlet Bomb just doesn't get me fired up as Modern Strange Cowboy and well... nothing can compete with Aggressive Zone ED.

Waiting for the subs over here, shit just keep piling up for the crew, what will they do!?!?!
I wasn't really a big fan of the OP in the first place maybe this new one will suit my tastes more.

EP 14 was hilarity. Takehito Koyasu pulls off those jokes quite nicely and I can't help but laugh. And Solva's was pretty much my favorite paradise scene.

Otherwise it looks like the show is finally done with the pretty girl squad fight and moving onto Saten.

Wow, that was such an awesome ep. I totally saw the priest's paradise coming.
Against my beliefs, I do hope that Cruz's sister is actually alive.

She is, she's the Vega character. Think about it, what other woman has green hair in this show.

From an anime perspective that's totally possible and probably it.
From a logical perspective, no.

Gurren Lagann in the equation implies drills.

Ep 15 is out, and what the frak? Did they like run out of budget part way through or something or are they like practicing cost saving methods?

Otherwise, despite the art, a good episode showcasing Saten, and I suppose the title of the next episode spoils the new Uten's identity anyways.

Final thoughts: Aruka doesn't have any pantsu.
