Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann

on Feb 16, 2010

Ah, Gurren Lagann. Now, this show is one of those odd ones. It follows all the formula for a shounen series, and then decides to exagerate everything about it, just to show how utterly rediculous this genre is. I may be thinking too much about nonsense, but Gurren Lagann strikes me as a second deconstruction of the Shounen Mecha genre, the first being Neon Genesis Evangelion.

There is a reason for this. I stopped because I know what is going to happen. If you turn back the clock a little, you will remember a show that had a similar thing happen to it.
