New Gurren Lagann? Not!

Before I get to my review on Code Geass R2 (still downloading episode as I type this), let us take a brief moment to celebrate their wonders of real manliness. The awesome, egocentric, superior yet lovable figure of a true man. Yes, nothing beats the men of Gurren Lagann when it comes to how we define a man. One year since the show has ended, the producers of Gurren Lagann once again invited us to feel this strike of cockiness (pun not intended) that never seems to be exaggerating.

With the accompanying song of Rap wa Kan no Tamashii da! (Rap is a Man’s Soul!), I present to you GAINAX’s short video of Gurren Lagann Parallel Works (taken from Random Curiosity).

Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann (Anime Review)

I’ve been absent from the blogosphere for quite awhile. Internet in the campus has been acting up lately. The lecture notes needing revision are piling up. Assignments are around the corner. I struggle to find some time just to do a decent review. Having said that, expect more unannounced hiatus in the future. I’d say, welcome back to student life.

I have long intended to blog about this anime. When I first heard of this anime, it fails to get my attention simply because of the odd mecha design and I originally did not enjoy watching mecha-type anime. But my extinguished desire for mecha anime has came back to life, thanks to Gundam 00. And ever since then, I thought to myself that Gundam 00 may not be the only good mecha-oriented anime around. In fact, some are better (such as Code Geass, which I am currently watching done watching and I will get to that later) and not necessary focusing on the mecha themselves. I believe that at the end of the day, what really matters is the story. Of course, you need the kick-ass action and flawless animation as a compliment but those two along won’t make any sense without a solid plot from the beginning towards the end of the story. And Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann is one of the honourable mention. Otherwise it won’t be picked as Best Anime of 2007 by the staff from Random Curiosity.
