Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann

Chinese New Year, a time when I used to collect a decent amount of “hong bao” money. The time when I used to eat the sweets I like and drink all the soft drinks I want, turned into a time for me to watch all the back dated anime that I have been missing out on.

Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann is one of them and I heard lot of reviews on, saying it’s one of the greatest/best mecha series in 2007. I was kind of skeptical when I was told or read about people’s comment for I did watched the first ep of Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann when it was first released and wasn’t very much impressed with the animation so I put it on hold till now.

I guess I misjudged this series, it is indeed one of the better mecha show in 2007 still I won’t rate it as the best, for my impression of best must appeal to my eye and the mecha design for Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann didn’t really impress me on that level but the story line and action packed episode surely did impress me very much.

Here is the anime opening to the Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann:

Animation: 8
Animation is pretty good, since it’s action packed most people who enjoy mecha anime should love this series.

Mecha Design: 6
The mecha design wasn’t impressive if I compared it to other mecha series in 2007, e.g. Gigantic Formula, Gundam Seed Destiny, etc…

Story: 10
I give it a full 10 points because it’s story is pretty good compared to other mecha series in 2007, especially the section where the supposedly important character in the series died, that added points to a supposedly normal mecha series.

Opening Song: 9
The opening song of the anime is good and they change the animation according to the storyline in the series. You will only realise this if you watch all the opening animation for each episode like me, haha.

This is a must watch for all mecha fans, not for the mecha design but for all the mecha action packed episodes. If you are looking for an anime with a decent storyline, this anime should be good enough for you too.

To end my review, here is the PV to the opening song of Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann:
