I'm a bit disappointed with literally no replies to this thread but I've got to wait, its kinda sad that I have to revive a thread for an anime that hasn't even begun airing in Japan..heart-broken....since, I'm expecting a masterpiece of this one, since its made by the legendary GAINAX, the guys who did EVA, FLCL, Mahoromatic, He is My Master and many more.

I'll post some thumbnails for your eyes to feast on!

This anime may be the best or the worst anime in 2007, hopefully, it turns out real good but its gonna have some awesome competition between so many other new series that are to start in the new season, April 2007.

Its premiere in Japan is in just another 15 days, so it will air on Saturdays weekly in Japan...I think.

I love Gainax: EVA, Kare Kano are some of my favourite animes of all time.
But..... this anime looks a little too weird for my taste. I never got FLCL. I'm not a big mecha fan either, but, since it is Gainax, I will probably watch the first few eps and go from there.

I think I'm really gonna like this series. The animation at a lot of times reminds me of FLCL and it's one the things I love the most about this show. It also seems to have a good amount of humor. I think Kamina is just plain awesome. He's a badass who does things his way is just cool in about every way you can think of. Even when they were running away from the big monster that crashed into their world he was still hitting on Yoko while they were running away for their lives. The machine that they find, which Kamina calls Lagann, looks a bit weird right know in my opinion, but from some pictures it seems like it will change a bit in appearance later. Gonna be watching this series for sure.

ADTRW subbed the first episode and it was done good but they didn't do the karaoke for both the OP and ED. I liked the OP but the ED was okay but really short......it seemed like 30 seconds instead of over a minute. I really happy that I claimed Yoko-chan. B-san, it reminds me of FLCL a lot, the animation, the sexual references (remember that line Yoko-chan said when she was cramped inside the "Lagann"..........cracked me up and then Kamina said stop saying dirty things and then Shimoun was like "MORE POWER!"), the use of structural metaphors, the humour. The metaphors used in here are pretty deep like EVA and FLCL, like most of GAINAX works.

I will give this episode a 9/10 but it would certainly be 10/10, if they had the karaoke for the OP and ED.

Hmm JCD and Barbo I usually am in agrieance with alot of your anime tastes but I'm gonna need to see a little more from this anime before i can fully commit to scheduling this as a regular rotation player.

While i did enjoy some of the one-liners. Yoko says "Can't take it anymore, so tight" then Kamina says "Don't talk dirty in a place like this" Yeah it was funny since they were at the height of the action and Kamina still isn't taking the situation that seriously.

With that said I am wondering about the overall plot. It is unique I mean it's not often you have an anime so focused on "drilling" but as with most animes it's not really a fair judge if you don't give it at least 4-5 episodes to hook you. That one rule comes straight out of the otaku for dummies handbook
biggrin.gif
so i plan to keep watching

I'm currently downloading the first ep now and will watch it and see. It sounds good and I love comedy so hopefully this will be one to watch. Though, senpai seems to be reserving judgement. Are the songs any good? And congrats on your ranking senpai. I didn't even see it until I just read it in the what you are doing thread. I'm happy for you, warita and d-san. A lot of the anime that just came out that I'm looking for haven't even been subbed yet. I hope the ones that are, like this one are going to be worth watching.

Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann actually has one of my favorite OP and ED for the new series I have watched so far. It's just too bad that the people who subbed the first episode didn't do the karaoke for the OP or ED. And the ED is only about 30 sec long. I can't wait for the full versions of them to be released.

I'm glad the songs are good. I've found shows I liked but the songs haven't really hooked me yet so I was hoping for more great anime with amazing ops and eds. Once this ep finishes downloading, I'll be able to hear the songs. Thanks.

I finally watched the first episode and have to say I thought it was pretty good. At first I was like "Yay Gainax this will rock!" then I saw the mech design and was a bit dissappointed but now after watching it I have regained hope it will kick ass. How much does anybody want to bet Gainax will run out of money and the ending will suck?

i loved the mecha's look because, well, it looks funny
smile.gif
it most definitely reminds me of FLCL and that's a great thing.. i loved FLCL's design and, even though this isn't as good (at least so far), the style is indeed different in a good way..

as for the story.. well, it wasn't breathtaking -- it was just good enough to not turn me off. the technical part, the humor and the characters, on the other hand, made me put this on my priority list
