Hated it, but lots of people disagree. If you like over-the-top robot action and explosions, and don't care that the show is *completely* devoid of any meaningful plot or character depth/growth, you might like it.

OMG noooooooo, delete this before the nerds come lol. Personally I loved Gurren Lagann but I can see why people wouldn't like it.

Personally, it's my favorite show. Great animation, wonderful character and mech designs and some twists that I didn't expect. Definitely worth a watch.

You might want to wait on getting Gurren Lagann. There is a listing on rightstuf for the complete collection. Comes out next month.. list is 50, but they have it marked right now at 37.50. So, if you choose to get it a preorder from rightstuf will be your best price.

Um, Awesome! :applause:

I have to be careful here, I like way to much anime to start collecting. It would drain my account and I would need a room to store it.

Thanks for the input, guys. Even if the character development is lacking as Kirin suggests, I'm sure I've watched worse. I don't mind turning my brain off a bit for certain series.

Hm, are pre-orders generally cheaper than buying them upon release at Rightstuf? I've only really checked out their bargain bin. Also, I am a sucker for collector's editions, like the one listed at buy.com. Anyone know if the CE is nice?

Pre-orders do have a heavier discount at Rightstuf.

Personally, I think it's worth it to have the first CE because it comes with the artbox for the series which is really nicely done.

If you wait until RightStuf's next Bandai studio sale, you can snag the set for only $30. The next one should be in 2 months or so.

that's odd what were you trying to price match? I order my hime and was able to get a $6.10 refund from it due to these prices.

Gurren Lagann is one of my favorites, and the collector's editions are all pretty good but you'd probably be just as happy with a thinpak. The artbox with the first set is very striking from the side that faces outward, the bag that comes in the 2nd set surprised me with how well-made it is (about the size of a large purse or a small backpack, could fit a Wii but not quite a 360), and the full soundtrack and manga that comes in the 3rd set is well worth it if you're into those sorts of things. If it didn't take so long for a thinpak to come out, and if I didn't love cool artboxes and the great soundtrack I'd have probably skipped on the parts in favor of a full set.

I still can't see how Kirin remains blind to the character development, and can't appreciate Gainax's style of over-the-top action.

Because there is none. At best, it's superficial, forced, and cliche.

and can't appreciate Gainax's style of over-the-top action.


All conflicts are solved by screaming, then things explode. Rinse and repeat for 26 episodes. Yawn. The production values are high, and the animation is very well done. That's about the only nice thing I have to say about it.

Two questions!

1. Buy.com is like Amazon where Buy.com sells things and people can also sell items?

2. Right Stuf is a trusted site for anime and has been around for a while?
