The greatest anime review I have ever read

A quick background before I introduce this review: Back when I began watching anime, I had no idea about any of the hype behind any series, and I’m sure everyone else started the same way. I just shot through random review sites, picking up whatever sounded cool or whatever was highly rated. Obviously I read reviews too but this one review stuck in my mind. I’d totally forgotten where I’d seen it until just recently when I stumbled across it on Animenfo. It was a review so powerful that it made me drop everything and go watch it. This is the link to the review but I’ve copied it down here for you guys to read.

The guys user name is XDragon. The anime he is reviewing is Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.

Predictions for the inevitable ‘best anime of the 00’s’

Toradora vs Minami-ke

Neither of these are going to win but it's the best header image I could find

Are you ready for the inevitable? The newest and largest pub argument amongst anime fans for the next year or so is on it’s way. While others can argue how anime has changed over the decade, most notably in the internet explosion, the average folk will slam their glass on the table and proclaim that ‘Code Geass will be forgotten in a few years’ or that ‘Monster is the most under-rated anime of them all’. So I’m going to try to shed some light upon this topic. Now I won’t be saying what my picks are, oh no. I’m going to be acting like a bookie, weighing up the odds for what will be voted top of the charts. For this I’m going to assume that the winners will be decided by a poll, much like the Animesource polls, where each voter gets 5 votes. Place your bets folks. What was the best anime of the 00’s?

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.
