Holy mother of...!


I just finished watching this show!

This anime is simply amazing! One fo the best I've watched for quite a while, and I'm quite hard to please in that area...

Spoiler: Plot Summary
In the distant future, people build their homes and raise domestic animals in subterranean caverns. As a result, they live in fear of the occasional earthquake and cave-in, and have been for hundreds of years. Jeeha is one such village.

One day, a boy named Simon happens to find a small, shiny drill whilst digging to expand the village. At the same time, Kamina, a guy who believes that there is another land above the village, persuades a gangster to break through the ceiling in order to leave the cavern. Suddenly, an earthquake occurs and the ceiling collapses, followed by a big robot breaking through the ceiling.

Kamina is now sure that there is a world above them. Recklessly, he begins to fight against the robot. At that moment, another person appears from the land above. It is a girl by the name of Yoko. With a rifle in hand, she had been tracking the robot. However, all she could do was distract it. Then, Simon shows what he had found to Kamina and Yoko. It`s a mysterious robot whose head is also its body.

You want drama? It has it. You want romance? It has it. You want comedy? It has it, and in quite a large amount if I may add. You want action? The mechs in this one are a bit funny-looking, but it's all good, it's well worth it.

I was particularly fond of the sad moments in this.
Kamina's death and legacy, Simon's struggle to get to his destination, the love story between Yuko and Kamina - a future unfilfilled, the bittersweet ending of Simon and Nia's love (not really, love never dies, so they'll just pick up where they left off when they get together, besides, Heaven only knows [/end lovetard speech]), the sacrifices of the Gurren Lagann crusade, for the good of the humans...

There's too much to say about this great anime, and words can't do it justice. One has to see it for himself.

Emotions do drive everything, after all. It has an interesting concept, and it's rumored that there's a 2nd season in the making...^^
Hope they make it as good as the 1st one (too hard though...).

Spoiler: Music
It also has an interesting OST, consisting of all sorts of music, from instrumentals to rock songs (the main theme has 4 different remixes), and character songs that fit them well (naturally).

So, to all of you who have NOT seen it yet (do it now) and reading this (seriously, why are you here reading this? Go for a walk in the real world! :imslow), take my word for it, it may be 27 episodes, but you won't find an equally decent anime like this easy. There are other good ones, but this one is among the best.

Spoiler: Kamina wants you...


To watch this show, to learn how your soul can drill through the heavens!
I may have gone too far here, but what the hell, it's for fun anyway
