Omni on Gurren-Lagann

September 30th, 2007 by Author

Did I write that Kuro posted spoilers? Well, “spoiler” is Omni’s second name. Anyone caring about spoilers should not read his final G-L post, but here’s the conclusion:

Final Thoughts: I originally approached this show with a great deal of skepticism, some of it due to the Sunday morning timeslot this was airing in. Looking back at it now, that sounds really naive since Gurren Lagann turned out to be my favorite series that started in this past spring season. The word “epic” gets tossed around a lot, but I really think that it’s applicable here. Not only was this show incredible from an animation quality point of view, the story just kept growing in scale until they were literally fighting for the fate of the entire universe. Add to that all the memorable characters and inspiring moments, and I have no problem calling this the must-see show of 2007.

Sunday morning slot, indeed.

By the way, his summary gives off major Naruto vibes. Lots of bloggers experienced similar turnarounds because they expected Naruto to be a yet another DBZ clone, and it went far beyond that… for the first 100 episodes. At least Gurren-Lagann has ended, which is a major plus.
