If you're looking for anime similar to Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, you might like these titles.
Ryuuko Matoi is a fiery, feisty girl on a vengeful mission: she’ll find her father’s murderer at all costs, with only a giant red scissor blade as a clue to the villain’s whereabouts. Using the item as a weapon, she fights her way into the terrifying Honnouji Academy to track down a lead, unaware that the institute is brutally governed by a student council that’s anything but ordinary. Wielding special “Goku uniforms”, the group, led by president Satsuki, uses superpowers to keep the student body in check - but things are about to change now that Ryuuko’s in town!
Both are super highly energetic action shows - whether it's a mecha fusion, a giant drill or a talking uniform, everything's awesome! The pace in both is fast and the action frenetic, with cool-as-heck, distinct characters and flashy shit and explosions and calling your attacks and all that stuff à la shonen we love!
And it goes without saying, but the staff for both series is pretty much the same. If you liked one you can't really go wrong with the other.
If you've seen both TTGL and Kill la Kill, you'll immediately recognize the handiwork of the same team. Super flashy and bizarre visuals; high-action, frenetic fights; pseudo ecchi moments; and overall just crazy, over the top visual overload. If you liked one I can't imagine how you'd dislike the other.
Epic action with non-stop action, but these are anime where something is always happening. The action rarely stops to breathe, instead it is constantly ratcheting up the action to the highest level and then somehow finding a way to push it even futher. Both these shows have a similar art style and it's obvious they were made by the same people.
TTGL is mech and Kill La Kill focuses on melee combat but it hardly matters what the weapon when the attacks are so over the top ridiculous. If you're looking for an action thrill ride then these are the anime for you.
Each of these show are made by the staff, something the viewer should notice within the first minute as all the hallmarks of said staff are present.
The same distinctive art style is present in both, with its flashy and crazy battles, and similar character designs, it would be difficult not to instantly see the connection here. These shows really do have common ground in almost every aspect, from the same style of comedy down to the amazing OST that enhances every scene it accompanies.
But the biggest trait that these two shows have in common is their almost unfathomable energy. Both shows play out at breakneck pace, with barely a second going by without something happening, rather instead of ever letting up it just gets more and more frenetic. The action sequences are so similar that they even have the same over-the-top named special moves that the character just love to shout at every opportunity.
If you loved one of these shows for its balls-to-the-wall action, the other should definitely be checked out!
Both series have some of the staff in common, and boy does it show. Awesome fights, larger-than-life characters constantly delivering overacted lines (so awesome), epic animation and really distinct visual styles make these anime very similar.
If you liked one of these, chances are high that you would enjoy the other one.
Both Kill La Kill and Gurren Lagann share the same creative team, and both anime reflect the distinctive team style, especially in the character designs. If you love high action-adventure, then these anime should really hit the sweet spot. Kill La Kill is much more frantic and over-the-top, but both feature epic one-on-one battles with crazy legendary attacks and memorable inimitable individuals.
Both of these shows share the same direcor, and similarities are more than obvious with all the over-the-top funkiness. They are very different in terms of concept, but at the same time represent each other quite well. In terms of animation and general feeling of bizarre, you won't find anything more similar than this.
It goes without saying. If you watched both Gurren Lagann and Kill la Kill, you'll immediately make the connection. Both share the same sketchy art style, tone, humor, action and badassery. Do watch both!
Although both have very little similarities when it comes to the story line, they are very alike in illustration style and feel as well as in character design. Very energetic, funky, and really cool weaponry is overflowing!
Kickass action, over-the-top, large hams, badass fights and a relentless assault on the senses through rapid-fire action scenes and escalating feats of awesomeness. Insanely fun, kicks logic to the curb and are just a treat to watch.
They similar throw away logic and kick reason to the curb. Plenty of action, over dramatised and remarkable characters make worth watching.
Both Gurren Lagann and Kill la Kill feature the same fast paced, highly intense, non stop action. Even though Kill la Kill is more about physical weapon wielding fights and Gurren Lagann's is mostly done with mechas, the fight scenes in both are very similar.
The comedy in both are similar as well and they both often feel like a parody anime at times, pointing out the insane logic of the anime world.
If you liked Gurren Lagann - and let's face it, who didn't? - then you will like Kill la Kill. And if you like Kill la Kill and haven't watched Gurren Lagann...what's wrong with you?
Action is the first thing that comes to mind with the both of these. Everything from basic everyday stuff to the battles themselves are depicted as adrenaline rushes with everyone moving this way and that. Then comes the comedic effect and the somewhat surreal artwork they contain. Even with these, the underlying themes they contain or can be applied to can be seen.
If you liked one, you are sure to like (or love) the other!
Aside from being from the same people (trigger are ex-Gainax), these two animes are similar: Action packed, over the top, huge battles.
Both by the same company, they carry the flare and energy befitting the shounen genre. These two shows are at the top of their game and ridiculously overblown art styles and characters spouting hormone charged lines. In a way, both shows are about the gender empowerment of their characters, framed in ways specific to certain experiences and a "coming-of-age" theme.
For Sheer awesome what the fu^kery, Gurren Lagann and Kill la Kill are cut from the same cloth.
both of these anime are made by the same companies and have a very simular art style and animation. Both anime are over the top and full of action!
Same over the top style is common, though while at points each series had episodes where the animation quality suffers that's overshadowed by the fact that these two series (Kill La Kill and Gurren Lagann) are epic on top of epic :p
these are absurd all rediculous over the top bad assery that's good for the heart and soul. I'll say that Gurren Lagann has a more coherent message but Kill la Kill, is so bad ass it really doesn't need one. One second you're watching Kill la Kill... the next you're tripping balls. Nuff said.
The style is quite similar since one of the staffs in TTGL is involved in the production of Kill la Kill. In terms of storyline, TTGL may have a better message, while Kill la Kill, the badass and awesomeness can stand alone to make it a must watch.
The awesome level is about the same, if you liked one, im 100% positive you will like the other, these are on my top list ever.
At first i thought Kill La Kill was made from the same studio that did Tengen Toppa. This is not the case though.
Both Tengen Toppa and Kill La Kill are so worth it to watch.
They are both just so... epic, like literally. They both have that epic soul rushing feel to them.
These two shows are.. I guess you could say bloodrelatives. Same feel, same spirit, same type of action, energy, humour and draw-style. If you like one you like the other.
both are made by the same studio, so if you like one of them chances you will like both because they are similar kinda in artsyle and in the story. (Not the same story but done in a familiar matter) Really good animes and both can have there sad moments and have there really funny moments. There both great animes to just sit down and watch to unwind too.
The two shows share many of the same staff. This really shows in the similar over the top feel of the two shows. Both include a mix of action, comedy, and drama. Both include a lot of fan service, but it never takes away from the shows themselves. Both shows have a large cast of interesting characters.
Completly agree on this one i think was one of the best anime that i ever seen but its a little sad at the same time i coulnd hold the crying t-t my cure was watching another anime ASAP thats all i can say for now, but for the rest wel recomend it !!matta ne
These two shows experiment with deconstructing a genre and taking the core elements and turning them up to 11. They seem ridiculous at first but once you get used to how they use their setting the craziness begins to serve the whole experience. Both are more satisfying if you view them after being very firmiliar with a selection of shows from the genres (Super Robot for TTGL and Shounen/Seinen Battle for KLK).
Same crazy art syle, both stories go on an epic scale, characters die in order to advance the main character's development. Comedy is very similar and the characters are all really memorable.
If you enjoyed the story pace and art design of either show, you simply have to watch the other.
Similar over the top action, loveable characters and good story. I dont really have much else to say other than watch them both love them and help me find another similiar one lol.
Same company, same people. I wonder how they are related. Similar artstyle, fun good guys and bad guys, fanservice-y but not to point of annoyance or distracting. Lol :D
Both have the same director & writer. These two shows share the same over-the-top action they are known for.
They have almost the exact same style. epic storylines
epic good guys
epic bad guys
epic plot twists
Im not kidding either, these are the things they share and if you loved one, then there is no doubt in my mind that you will love the other.
Both share the same director and themes about believing yourself and challenging the powers that be. Kill la Kill is much better paced than TTGL, but they are both still amazing anime. Both are great feel-good anime that will get you pumepd as they go through. Both have small heart breakers, but you'll end up feeling great by the time the Anime is through.
Watch 'em both, love 'em both.
Both have over the top action and stories but well written twisty stories with fantastic characters and messages!!!
Both by the same company so same artistic style. Strong female leads, great battle fighting mechanics, both with insane but interesting plots!
well it's almost the same there's an escalation in the plot and they end up in space, lot's of fights, and comedy although Gurren Lagann has a vauge romance
They're both non serious over the top anime with fanservice, fights and exxagerrated animation
In both anime the main protagonist is super overpowered and can do next to anything. If you like one you should like second.
Things they have in common: flashy colorful animation, over-the-top action, comedy elements, sci-fi, some unique concepts.(both made by the same director) If you watched and liked Gurren Lagann then Kill la Kill is a must watch.
The style is quite similar in terms of aesthetics, pacing and themes. While kill la kill is much more experimental than Gurren Lagann they both have as much soul.
First, these animes are by the same studio so the art work is pretty similar. The same high-octanem, over-the-top fight scenes exist in both animes. Both Gurren Lagann and Kill la Kill have skantily clads beauties with big weapons and guys that randomly lose their clothes.
Both are over the top comedic action shows. The animation is similar aswell. Probally because both are from the same director.
I prefer Kill la Kill above Tengen Toppen, Tengen Toppen gets very serious at the end which I didnt mind but it did feel a little out of place. If you do not like the ending of Tengen Toppen I recommend the movie (part 2) which is a whole lot lighter.
They are similar in many ways.
It was stated that Kill La Kill was meant to be a "Copy" of Gurren Lagann through the overall theme and how the show turnt out.
The top over the top action, the animation, the epic scenes, the music and the "THIS ISN'T MY FINAL FORM" sequence everytime. and the fan service..
Both are action comedies that have similar animation and fighting style. The shows use sexual comedy and twisted humor. Despite the comedy, they use metaphores that reflect deep themes: clothes and spiral power.
Both of these anime are very over-the-top and showy. The genre isn't very common, but both are pretty well executed and entertaining to watch.
These two are animes that you can't be discribe as common. The are simply crazy but in really positive way. The animation in both of these is really good. They are perfect animes that you can't miss.
If you like Kill la kill then you will also like Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann and vise versa they are very simuliar to each other, the art work the story the comedy every thing looks very much like each other. if this is what this studio Trigger is going to be making then we have some very good things to look forward to:)
They both feature a perfect mix of awesome, humorous, and emotional moments. They're also made by some of the same people.
Both of these animes have the same kind of funky atmosphere, which presents a great way to enjoy a show in which you can just turn off your brain at times. Although they have very different storylines, it is easy to see the similarities between the two with their art styles and their upbeat feel. If you liked the fast-paced action in either Kill La Kill or Gurren Lagann, you can't go wrong with the alternative.
Do you like anime with unique art styles going completely over the top with characters, story, and self-empowerment while retaining identity. . so do they.
Similar art style, many fights and the characters are very loveable. The stories of both anime are refreshing and have their deep moments (even though it might not look like it at the beginning). The start of Gurren Lagann and Kill La Kill may be a bit slow, but I guarantee you that both anime are worth your time.
They are made by the same studio, have similar art styles, and both are epic in their own way.
Same animation style, same adorable ridiculous humour, similar story line and big plot twist. Fast and pleasant action - no place for boredom! No sentimental monologes that make you cringe, but there's still a few wise thoughts to find in this absurd piece of art. You will remember both of them - TTGL for awesomess and KlK for... amount of naked butts. ;)
Both have over the top fight scenes, a similar art style, and... did i mention the fight scenes. These shows both combine action with some comedic relief very well. You dont need to to worry about lovey dovey nonsense or entire episodes devoted to how the charachter felt after the last fight. It just non-stop fights and
PS In case you didn't understand, there are lots of amazing fights.
PPS Just watch it already.
I like these 2 because the have great animation! Only problem I have with kill la kill is that they never show the nipples. I give kill la kill 2 spirited thumbs up!
they are both alternative universe animes that seem to like to go over the top in action and plot and they both have a main charcter gradually making their way to the top and learning new abilities and then have major plot twists that throw all your judgments and what you used to think out the window
They're just so similar I don't know where to start. I mean, they were made by the same people. They both involve flying boats crashing into monsters. The soundtracks will tear your heart to shreds every time you hear them.
Gurren Lagann is my favorite of the two, but both have a fun art style and make for fun wathes.
Both are wackey, over the top. Adding elements of comedy and action with drama. Animation style is a little old school, not adding computerized graphics
Not just because they're made by the same people, but because they're super energetic and as they go along, they get crazier and crazier. Their animation is awesome and you'll love all of the characters.
The same director, the same epicness. Good battles, good music. Anythin else? Yep. Great character design. Both have charm. Both have boobs, but not ALL is around them. Kill La Kill have less sad moments, but more boobs.
Both TTGL and KLK combine interesting visuals with great soundtracks and voice acting performances to enhance their always great fights. The fun, unique characters and comedy are bonuses too. They're made by the same team, and they're both high on adrenaline too!
The biggest similarity between the two is how their ideas and stories are structured. They are very different ideas, but they are ideas that will appear to similar audiences. Unfortunately, there are no shows out there like these... except maybe each other.
Both of these anime are made by TRIGGER - this studio is notorious for their style of stories and great art style.
I think they aren't as similar but the humor is the same and the story at the start escalates way out of proportion in the end o
Fun action. Waifu main characters. Lighthearted somewhat story driven plot. Just sit back and enjoy the explosions and interactions.
They’re somewhat similar but not to much so to where it’s predictable. I liked both and think you would as well.
Naota Nanbada is a boring young boy who leads a boring life in a boring town. His older brother has left for America, and the closest he comes to any excitement is when his deadbeat dad has too much sake. But things change one day when a bizarre girl zooms up to him on a scooter and smacks him in the face with her guitar. What's more, once Naoto returns home he discovers that this strange woman has arrived ahead of him and moved in! Not only does she constantly engage in perverted activities with Naota's father and flirt with the young man himself, but she also claims to be an alien who is searching for the ‘Pirate King.' Now, Naota must learn to live with this new intruder, deal with an odd government agent who sports exceptionally large eyebrows and the mysterious Medical Mechanica, and come to terms with the fact that there are a variety of robots and weapons emerging out of his head - amongst other things. Perhaps boring wasn't so bad after all...
You would like FLCL because the story is incredibly funny and as wacky as Tengen Toppa Gurran-Lagann. Both anime are interesting and have similar crazy animation.
Both series have a similar fast-paced, action-packed feel to them. They also both rely on fair amounts of absurdity in order to generate humor and/or AWESOMENESS. They also share an attractive and unique art style. In general, both shows have that "GAINAX touch" that makes them much unlike your typical anime series.
FLCL and Lagann are Gainax's own flesh and blood, meaning that they contain incredible action with madness everywhere. Although for Lagann this is mostly true for first episodes, that's enough. Furthermore, both series showcase robots. In FLCL they come out of the hero's head, in Lagann they're head-shaped themselves.
Well, both series start innocent and then turn out to be extremely badass. More similiarity is about the atmosphere surrounding the shows than about the plot itself. The main protagonists are shy, young boys without confidence in themselves. Throughout the show they grow up and learn about life. I think that action and characters are the best part about these anime. Oh, I almost forgot to tell about the music, it was fuc*ing awesome!
Misused guitars, ass kicking spiral weapons and completely crazy plots. You loved the action? Then go and watch this one too!
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann and Furi Kuri (FLCL) are by the same production company, so it stands to reason that they would deal with similar themes: growing up, what it means to be a hero, and letting go of the one you love. Granted, those aren't the ONLY themes, but if you like strong stories with themes like that, you'll like both of these shows. You follow a young male protagonist on his journey to find himself and his special purpose in an otherwise dreary existence. Check out FLCL and TTGL!
Both Gurren-Lagann and Furi Kuri share very similar art style, but what makes both anime's stand out as something that is considered a "Must See" is the way humor is portrayed. Although the story line in Furi Kuri is much more harder to grip then Gurren-Lagann's is, the anime is still light and funny with a bit of a "I know how that feels" with it. I would recommend highly watching Furi Kuri if you have not already seen it; It's not every day you get to see a robot blast out of someone's forehead. ;)
Made by the same people these two series show it by their animation style. Both having interesting and over the top characters. Who's not to love anime with epic robots, wheither they be busting out your head or out the ground?
also a fast storyline and much unstoppable action
and same humor still tengen toppa gurren lagan isnt that fast as FLCL
both are from the same Director Imaishi Hiroyuki
The visuals are crazy. The characters are totally insane. Sometimes the plot makes no sense. But this is why you love FLCL and TTGL so much :)
Be prepared to be assaulted through the eyeballs as the craziness unfolds in front of you, in an amazingly addictive way. Although both shows are probably for a more mature audience, I think fans of one mad show will instantly love the other.
Both Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann and FLCL are plain rediculas. If you like TTGL then you will like FLCL. FLCL will make you laugh until your side hurts, much like Kamina did. Check it out, you won't regret it.
The absurdity of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann follows through into FLCL. The primary characters are very similar apathetics who have very boisterous and over-the-top supporters. The action is also similar with a major importance placed on epileptic fight sequences.
Gainax, Gainax, Gainax. Big action scenes, fast pace, crazy characters, and aliens. The main character is a young man who suddenly finds himself with an awesome power. The animation is similar, and the humor is almost identical.
The first thing that came into my mind while watching Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann was FLCL. Having mechas, the animation and especially their hilarious logic are very similar.
They're both over-the-top animes with action and hilarity. FLCL is much more surreal and has a more fluid narrative, but if you liked the fast-paced action of Gurren Lagann, you'll love FLCL
Both are over the top and chaotic, not to mention share similar genres (parody, mecha, comedy, bizarre). However, more importantly they are both brilliantly strong coming of age stories and much deeper than their jovial appearance. The protagonists (Naota and Simon) exert personalities that many can relate to, and the secondary characters (Haruko and Kamina) exemplify personality traits many strive for. Both animes will impart the importance of faith and confidence in oneself, that our relationships are fluid and influenced by the growth of others, and that change, though often bittersweet, is a necessary step forward.
it a good suggestion, as both are random and pertain mecha and comedy, they also have their serious side and a solid plot.
Both share the same director. Both share themes of challenging the satus quo. Both are great fun. TTGL is much more action oriented, while FLCL is more of a comedy. FLCL is better paced and shorter than TTGL, but TTGL will give you more time to meet and appreciate the characters along the way.
They are both hyperactive coming of age stories with simple narratives that weave a much more complicated thematic journey, along with having constantly original and unique directing and music.
Such a crazy and amazing show that will have your eyes widen more and more as you go along in the series. It's amazing how awesome both of these animes are. The characters are all cool and the action and plot gets crazier with every episode.
Neither show will allow you the satisfaction of knowing what will happen next. Gurren Lagann has a bit more cliches to fall back on since it has a much longer runtime, but where either plot goes was not standard. Both shows also deal with themes of growing up and self-empowerment. And while humor has a strong presence in each, the shows will have heelturns towards being serious at times. If you liked one, I am confident you would like, or at least appreciate, the other.
Like most boys his age, the young Renton thinks of nothing but reffing – riding trapar waves on a board – and idolizes Holland, the leader of the renegade group of reffers named Gekko State. As an orphan of a famous hero, he lives a boring life with his grandfather until the beautiful Eureka crashes, literally, into his life. Now, with the help of his newfound friend and crush, Renton finds himself living amongst the crew of Gekko State. The errands are hard and the bullying is fierce, but with Eureka by his side, Renton just might find the courage to tough it out and even save the world!
Both Tengen and Eureka offer a unique take on two young upstarts who start from humble origins but are quickly caught up in events beyond their control, as well as intense, stylistic mecha action and character-driven plots.
Both series have remarkably similar plot lines and character lineups. Gurren-Lagann is more plot driven while Eurkea seven is more character driven. Both stories (initially) revolve around a pubecent boy who is able to pilot a "special" mecha type robot, both are guided by a stronger, more charasmatic male character, both involve a love affair between the main character and a human-but-not-human female character, and both involve saving the world from a much larger enemy than it should be concievable to defeat.
both stories have crazy mecha action, an interesting crew as well as a love story that revolves around the main character. and oh yeah both love interest are "special"
Both mech action type shows. Also involves some obscure kid making their rise to greatness. Both can be rather mature on some aspects with a fair share of comedy as well. Both stories also have their own fair share of twists. Some you will see coming from a mile away and others not so much.
Both E7 and Tengen Toppa tell the story of a sad, weak boy and his rise to herodom. Both shows have a crew of rebels, fighting against a mighty, oppressive power. Where E7 tries to take itself quite srsly, despite all the rainbows and pink explosions, TTGL simply disregards sanity. If you loved one of these, and are looking for a similar story with a different edge, give the other a try!
Both anime are super colourful and have a lovely range of characters. Both are about fighting for their survival basically. Both are slightly longer than they should be IMO. You'll enjoy one if you liked the other
If you liked one of these series then you will probably enjoy watching the other series as well because each series place a strong emphasis on the mechs and their pilots. Showing that as each series the characters grows stronger and they become able to stand on their own with the support of their friends and the feelings they have. Each series some rather nice comedy and funny moments but they also have the moments when everyone is absolutely being serious neither of which will ever feel out of place and like the tone of the episode doesn't feel like it belongs with the current situation.
A lot of the same voice actors/actresses. Same mecha non gundem feel. Tear jerking storyline making sure you are to watch from start to finish
Mecha: check. Saving the world: check. A boy's coming of age: check. These series just fall in together so well that there is no way you should miss a chance of watching the other if you've like one of these.
Both of these anime have a rather spectacular view of mecha. Both anime follow a young man as he joins a crew of rebels against an oppressive government. Both anime involve some interesting plot twists and action scenes. A lot of both animes are how the characters interact with each other, the mechs, and their world.
TTGL is hard to digest, and only die-hard fans of the mecha genre can see the epicness of this series. Well, Eureka Seven has a similar feeling to it, every episode leaves you thinking you're watching something more awesome than you'd like to admit. If you loved TTGL and you're in search of something original with enough GAR to keep you more than just hooked, E7 is your next best friend.
Gurren Lagann is the definitive rule of cool, and Eureka Seven has air surfing mecha, but they are more than just badass mecha. The inner clockwork is a romance that blooms into love between two characters, Eureka and Renton in E7 and Simon and Nia in Gurren Lagann. When there's action, it's fast and fierce and the characters really sell the shows.
These Both are the two best mecha animes of all time. they are both highly addicting and also love stories on the side. by the time you finnish up one eppisode you automaticaly put it to the next one
They both run along the same sort of theme where a young boy is stuck somewhere where they were born and are looking for something new. Stories about character development and coming of power not only within battle but in their personal lifes also.
Both of these shows invigorate with their spirits and likable casts. Complete with unbeatable odds, over-the-top, yet fluid action, romance, themes of revolution and friendship, these animes tell wonderful coming-of-age stories that will inspire those who watch. If you loved one, you'll love the other.
Action? Mecha? Slight Romance? Sci-Fi elements?
All of these are present in the both of these anime - when action happens, it happens full force. Both also have a defining moment that sets the tone for the entirety of the show. If one was amazing to you, so will the other!
In 2010, the Britannian Empire enslaved Japan using powerful mecha known as Knightmares; in the aftermath Japan was renamed Area 11, and its people began a hard and terrible existence. Lelouch, a Britannian student living in Area 11, has grown up hating the Empire and everything it stands for. One day, in the middle of a terrorist attack, Lelouch meets a mysterious girl who grants him the ability to control minds. Can he use his new power to fight for freedom, or will his hatred twist his good intentions into mindless acts of vengeance?
Assuming you liked the part in Tengen Toppa that focused far more on the complexities of making political decisions e.g. pretty much the second half (especially Rossiu's story), and yet want to retain that rush-to-the-head pacing and kick-arse mecha focus, then I'd highly recommend Code Geass. It's less epic but the shocking twists and 'grey areas' of Lelouch's decisions will give you as much of a thrill as the power-ups in Tengen Toppa.
The story line in both anime has some similarity but in special they both have mechanical action or better sayed they have Mobile Suits action,balance between drama and comedy is perfect equal, If you liked action,drama comedy in this one , you\'d surely like the other.
Both animes are about a seemingly hopeless fight between the rebeliants and a powerfull enemy who rules the country. Either in CG or Gurren-Lagann we can watch the moves of a great lider, who is the only one keeping the rebel in a row. Although they have many similaritis ther are also very different what prevent you from feeling bored and saying "I've already seen it...".
I thought a little on this one ( it was pretty obvious though I didn't notice). They both have rebelions fighting in robots against a goverment that has ruled for a while. The difference in the goverments though are one is made of monsters.
Fight the Powah, you say? If massive uprisings, political intrigue, and mecha fights are what you're looking for, these series have 'em by the barrelfull. Code Geass is more political and far less tongue-in-cheek than Gurren Lagann, but is still jam-packed with a whirling mix of action, mystery, and goofy comedy... enormous cast and minor comic relief characters included.
These 2 titles share the drama that goes along with war. Lives are lost and sacrifices are made. Both Simon and Lelouch carry the burden of starting and finishing a rebellion in the midst of a tyrannical empire. Although the main antagonists' reasons for fighting are completely different, the progression of the story for each anime is quite similar.
Obviously, both series are similar in that they involve mechas. In the first half of TTGL, the similarities between the two series are reletively subtle. However, the second half shows extreme similarities, particularly regarding turmoil in leadership, partnership, and politics. Both series are a ridiculously good watch and I really think that if you like one, you'll like the other.
On one hand, you have a series that thrives on coolness, pure badassery and more coolness with some ham and a whole lot of absurdity. That's Gurren Lagann. On the other hand, you have Code Geass. Not just coolness, but ham as well and cheese. Lots of cheese. Which in turn leads to absurdity. How they mix seriousness with such bouts of comedy (Intentional and unintentional) is what makes them fun to watch and liken to each other.
From massively planned out plans of such cunning to the point it's mind-boggling to tactics that simplify to attack and attack some more, they are different and yet similiar. They both have style and flair in what they do and a plot that's about a group of rebels/humans who vie for a better world for them and those around them by fighting against an empire whose power outclass their own by far. And mecha, which only goes to further show the absurdity of it all.
Seekers of giant robot porn look no further. While both are epic sci-fi sagas, Code Geass has a political bent while Gerrun Lagann is all about massive carnage.
While the plotlines may seem very different, Gurren Lagann and Code Geass have very similar themes. Both of them revolve around battles against a bigger power. Both protagonists hope for change. Simon and Lelouch are alike in the way that they desire to fight to bring peace. Both animes contain action-packed battles that focus more on just the fighting and center as well on the characters themselves. Speaking of characters, there is a lot of development in both animes and the characters are down to earth and relatable. Both Gurren Lagann and Code Geass leave you breathless with amazing music and beautifully crafted storylines. Both of them are definitely worth a watch.
Fight the power! is probably a good tag-line for both of these anime. Young rebels take on the current regime with their ever-evolving mechas. Both protagonists have a faithful group of sidekicks, some rather ruthless antagonists, and a story-line that is more about freedom than romance.
they are in the top 10 best anime series of all time and they both involve mecha and they both have a supurb plot that could entertain you for hours
Both have great impact on audience, are superior to other animes and the main character will make you shed manly tears.
Both of these animes have so many twist and turns that when you thought you had it figured out, another scenario comes into play, and when you though you have that scenario figured out, another scenario would play. Undoubtedly they are both extremely well written and though out animes, and if you are looking for a mind blowing and unexpected experience, one that keeps your blood pumping for excitement, and the eagerness to find out what will occur in the upcoming episode, than this is the route to go with.
Both are masterpieces, and it lies within the similarity of their stories, which is their worlds both being taken over by some greater force with mechas. The MC then starting a rebellion against this greater force, getting a hold of said mechas and fighting back. As the story goes on, the characters grow, alongside epic mecha battles and of course the other general themes of love, drama, friendship, etc. Ultimately with their bittersweet endings and their top-tier waifus, (C.C. and Yoko) I'm sure if you watched one, you'd love and enjoy watching the other
In the year 200X, World War III began. Special bombs destroyed parts of cities such as Tokyo, leaving decimation in their wake. Decades later, ground zero in Tokyo – an isolated section known as the Black Spot – remains an enigma. Its residents known as Needless possess strange powers such as the ability to control fire or telekinesis, and are constantly hunted down by Simeon, a large pharmaceutical company with sinister motives and Needless of their own to do their bidding. Young Cruz is part of a resistance to fight against Simeon and its Needless figurehead leader, Adam Arclight; but after the resistance is brutally killed by Simeon’s minions, he finds himself saved by a motley crew: Professor Gido, scantily-clad Eve and badass Blade. Together, the gang fends off Simeon’s attacks and tries to discover the truth behind the corporation’s actions. What is Simeon really after, and why do they desperately want to find Fragments?
The style of both of these series seem very similair. Plus, the priest and Kamina are amazing.
Both anime are ridiculously over-the-top in terms of some of the fight scenes that are in them, with stupidly large moves. The animation style is also very similar in some of the episodes. So if you like stupid way over-the-top fights and comedy, then either show is perfect for you.
If you're looking for over the top ecchi, action and GAR, look no further than these two titles.
To be honest, the action scenes in both series is so GAR to the extreme, you WILL like one if you the other.
Action, GAR, and unique characters! Throw in some boobs and you have both of these titles. Check one out if you liked the other.
With similar artstyle and humor, you'll find TTGL and Needless to be mind coliding. Having massive battles that tip the scale of the word massive, along with some fun ecchi scenes, look no further, for TTGL and Needless already exist.
Both have epic battle with awesome special effects.Also both series are post apocalyptic: - Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann: After a massacre, the humans take shelter underground - Needless: The needless appear due to the 3º World War
Very similar art, characters and parody elements, how ever it has to be said that while Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is EPIC, Needless is average at best.
None the less if you liked TTGL, Needless isn't bad if your looking for something to kill time.
When I first watched Gurren Lagann, I was instantly reminded of the epic coreography and over-the-top charisma of the charactarters which made me love Needless. So I would definetely reccomend both for their similar high-octance style.
Well basically Kamina and Adam are the same badass type character. Even though the are different genres both shows have the same over the top action.
Both Needless and Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann have over the top action and are completely chaotic at times. They start with a similar trio of characters (i suspect Adam Blade to be the actor who plays Kamina ;) ) who make more friends and build up their forces while they go along to save the world.
Blade is almost as manly as Kamina,
Art is very similar and ridiculous,
They will stay in your memoey,
but TTGL is epic story with comedy, fighting and drama, while Needless is epic fighting, comedy with pantyshots.
In a bizarre fantasy world, students known as meisters are trained at the illustrious Shinigami Weapon Meister University; but the tools they wield are no ordinary weapons! Each meister is paired with a human-like being who can transform into a weapon at will; and after defeating a pre-kishin - a human whose soul has darkened - the weapon eats the soul within it. A meister's ultimate goal is to collect ninety-nine pre-kishin souls and one of a witch so that his or her partner will become an all-powerful Death Scythe. Maka and her partner Soul Eater; Assassin Black Star and his partner Demon Blade Tsubaki; and Shinigami's son Death the Kid and his partners the Demon Twin Pistol Thompson Sisters each vie for their ultimate goal, but plenty of challenges and adventures lie in their way!
Both these series are very shounen and have a similar manic energy from them. Also, both series are very visually striking and well animated with lots of colour and fluid action sequences. Larger than life characters are also a major part of both shows.
Both shows present great animation and graphic. They both are also about fighing weird enemys. Between both the greatest similarity is a magnificent humour you taste while watching this shows. You just can't help laughing.
Slick, cool characters with an air of awesome about them are what will first attract most people to TTGL and Soul Eater. With a kick ass soundtrack, and fun shounen battles, most viewers will be hooked (I know I was).
Mostly mindless fun, the action is will what will keep you coming back for more episode after episode. That and the slightly adult humour. If you enjoy one, give the other a shot.
While perhaps not sharing any central theme, Soul Eater and Gurren Lagann are both ridiculous action comedies. To some extent, both shows have main characters who are children, that exhibit changes in their lives to make adult decisions, but still have their childish screw-up moments, usually reserved for comedy. If you're looking for an anime with action, fun characters, and neurotic comedy, then either of these will do for you.
Both Soul Eater & Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann Feature a plethora of memorable characters & outrageous fight scenes. Not to mention they both boast surprisingly effective visuals and both boast the rewards of teamwork!
These series both have a lot of themes in common, on top of their over-the-top shonen stylings and art work. If you like mixing together fights and laughs with a few similar themes, these series go very well together.
Interesting and fun characters and with both stories being almost filled with action and comedy are only some of the things that Soul Eater and Gurren Lagann have in common. With some rather nice soundtracks and interesting animation styles if you enjoyed one then give the other a look.
I find simmilar animations werry attractive, fans of one could easily be satisfeed with other. Simmilar themes and animation style can also encourage you to try other one.
They're both very light hearted and full of action, and the characters are wacky and likeable on both the good and bad sides.
Both have a distinctive art style and have a wacky, fun-loving take on their respective genres, with plenty of memorable characters and laugh-out-loud moments
In the early 21st century, insectoid organisms are invading the galaxy, searching for new stars to house their young. Mankind's only defense lies with space cadets such as Takaya Noriko, daughter of a celebrated admiral killed in battle, and Amano Kazumi, the top of her class. With their skill and the power of the mecha known as GunBuster, the girls must help fight to protect the galaxy from total annihilation...
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann and Gunbuster are basically one and the same, Gurren Lagann was made as a tribute to Gunbuster, as Gunbuster is the most recognizable hot-blooded mecha series. If you enjoyed the hot-blooded mecha pilots of either anime, you are bound to like the other.
These shows both build on overcoming the odds through friends, effort and spirit. They both have lots of screaming while giant robots save the day. The ends of both the show are bitter sweet yet highly satisfying. Remember that TTGL is an homage to all super robot before it.
TTGL: There won't be any anime that isn't greater (as in larger) like TTGL. Gunbuster comes close but yet it's thousands and millions and billions and trillions and [...] of kilometers away! Though it's close. Leaving size aside, these two anime are pretty similar: Characters and plot shows many similarites and not to mention it's freaking EPIC. And awesome gigantic battles!
Seriously: WATCH! NOW!
Gunbuster has a younger brother, and that brother's name is Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.
There’s no denying the similarities that exist between TTGL and Gunbuster. Everything from the motivational speeches, calling out the special attacks, the fights, the space setting, the mecha designs, and the emotionally charged characters are all similar.
Any fan of either will want to check out the other.
Both of these anime revolve around two young mech pilots who use personal loss to fuel them to fight harder. They are fueled by the knowledge that somewhere, someone wants to kill humans, and that makes them mad. The hot-headed mech pilot is kind of a thing in both. Gainax produced both, and while the plotlines are different, the feel of these anime are very similar.
Both Gunbuster and Gurren Lagann have plenty in common. But for telling the true, Gunbuster it's not like the sister, it's like THE MOTHER of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. If you have seen Gurren Lagann you HAVE to see Gunbuster. The son is great but the mother is even better.
Gunbuster is essentially the prototype for Gurren Lagann and is Gainax's first take on the mecha genre. While it's more serious in tone and has a very different plot, the themes, fight scenes, and overall feel of both of these series means that a fan of one should check out the other.
Both anime are of the more hotblooded variety, with humanity being threatened by truly epic threats, and full of visual style and upbeat antics. TTGL is way more Western Saturday morning cartoon, whereas Gunbuster is partly a love letter to older anime shows, but I do believe that fans of either could find something to enjoy in the other work.
Nono, a clumsy young girl living in the backwater countryside of Mars, dreams of becoming a space pilot. But when Nono witnesses Lal'C, a real space pilot called a Topless, and her brutal fight with one of the invading space monsters, she discovers that it may not be so easy as she's rocketed into orbit alongside Lal'C in the ensuing struggle. With guts and effort her only recourse, Nono reaches for the stars to become a "Nonoriri" and a Topless alongside her Onee-sama, as well as to fight back against hordes of space monsters!
Hotblooded passion! Kicking reason to the curb! Breaking the heavens and pushing aside all fear to accomplish your ultimate dreams, save the universe, and never back down! These are a few of the themes which run boldly through both of these insanely epic GAINAX artistic masterpieces. If you like either, you'll love the other as well.
Both of these shows adhere to a similar theme best described by the quote "surpass the impossible and kick reason to the curb!". Additionally, the animation style and feel is very similar wich adds to the feeling of familiarity. Last but not least, the humor is definitely on the same level.
If you liked one, you are bound to like the other!
If you're like me and can only stomach mecha shows that are completely and ridiculously over-the-top, TTGL and Diebuster are probably your best bets. Each's clueless small-town-y protagonist gets involved in something much bigger than them, and procedes to pull off impossible (-y cool) stunts. Oodles of fun, provided you can muster adequate suspension of disbelief.
A dementedly colorful visual style and a boundless enthusiasm for hot blooded super robot melodrama, backed to the brim with craziness that's so earnest it becomes affecting. As a Gainax mecha series, Gurren Lagann wears its debt to the Gunbuster OVAs - and Diebuster especially - on its sleeve.
They share some aspects of the premise in that they're both mecha that takes place in the distant future. Both are also packed with over-the-top action and ecchi, executed with a suitably overblown and colourful visual style. If you're a fan of one of these works you should definitely check out the other.
Excessive at every single point of the show, from music to graphics and art and not to mention the way the story goes on, that's what these two anime are about. Not to mention Gainax never denied the fact that Gunbuster 2 was sort of an test platform for Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, one comparative glance is more than enough to notice this.
Extreme, wacky and exciting at all times, if you thought this way about one show you will most likely think the same thing about the other.
This is one of those circumstances where one anime can be perfectly recomended to 2 different ones. The director, Producer, scriptwriter AND chracter designer for FLCL worked on Diebuster, so you can say that "Diebuster has FLCL written all over". From tone to pacing, to the characters and action, you will love FLCL if you've seen Diebuster and vice versa. But lets not leave out Gurren Lagann, even before its time, Diebuster's action will get Gurren Lagann fans nostalgic, not to mention the almost Kamina-esque feel of episode 4, If you loved Gurren Lagann, Diebuster will be among your favorites easily.
“Vash, the Stampede” - worth 60 billion dollars to the one who can turn him in. Bounty hunters everywhere are on the lookout for this legendary gunman, not to mention insurance agents Meryl Stryfe and Milly Thompson, who are tasked with preventing any potential damage that this Vash can cause. But with 60 billion on his head, Vash is not an easy man to find.
Trigun and Gurren-Lagann develop in the same fashion. While beginning as comedy shows, they become action-packed in the middle and turn into drama in the end. This way, you can watch the development of characters in different situations – you can even see them learning from the mistakes done in the past. On top of that, both series tell a story about people living in the blasted world - and making their life better.
Both Trigun and Tengen Toppa are excellent dystopic sci-fi which combine hilarious comedy, excellent developed characters you come to love, and a serious dramatic plot. If you're looking for inspirational protagonists and a pumped-up style, check out both of them.
Either one is a great sci-fi anime with humorous comedy, interesting characters, and a serious plot make both series a very entertaining watch. While TTGL does tend to focus more on the the whole mecha thing and Trigun has more of a western feel both series do well in their fields with the action being interesting and entertaining. If you liked one then you should check out the other.
One of the things that link these two animes is the dramatic switch the main characters make. While the fight scenes dominate the plot, they rapidly change from goofy shows of power to plot-laden battles. Both are set on a dystopian wasteland for the most part, with advanced technology centering in the plot
If you liked Gurren Lagann, you will love Trigun. Likewise, if you liked Trigun, you'll love Gurren Lagann. The general tone of both series is very similar; i.e predomently fun but serious when it needs to be. Both of them are also extremely funny and have excellent writing, music, animation, action and characters.
If you haven't watched either of these shows, then you are seriously missing out.
For Pandy and Retro, waking up naked with amnesia wasn't the high point of their day. While going on a crime spree, the duo are captured and sent to the infamous Dead Leaves, a notorious prison where the baddest of the bad are sent. Using the bathroom is a chore, eating is force fed and escape seems impossible -- but is it? Join Pandy, Retro, the drill endowed Chinko Drill and a gang of inmates as they plot their escape from the hell that is Dead Leaves!
It surprises me tha no one has added a recomendation here for Dead Leaves. This OVA is made by the same director and it shows. Brazen, energetic, and unapologetically machistic, like Gurren-Lagann it somehow manages to establish, sustain, and go beyond, unrelentingly superhuman levels of action and energy. As an OVA there is a much greater emphasis on visual style and aesthetic, than a plot (indeed its more of a 'setting' than a plot), but if you enjoyed the surreal outlandishness of the world, villains, and heroes, in Gurren Lagann, there's plenty more of it here - you'll also find what is (quite likely) the inspiration for the 'drill' motif in TTGL (watch TTLG again and you may draw some very different conclusions about its *ahem* symbolism).
On the surface, Dead Leaves and Gurenn Lagann have a lot in common, "both being directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi", but more importantly is their signature style. Hectic action sequences, screwball comedy, and its bold difference from most popular animes now adays. Saying they have bad dialogue might be a little rough, and incorrect, but there aren't sappy 10 minute speeches about love or freedom or what have you that a lot of animes capitalize off of. Strictly fun to watch animes, and if you watch one, you should run over and watch the other.
Both of these animes have quirky characters who do things the way they want to while engaging in flashy, over-the-top action. Dead Leaves has the more distinctive visual style, but Gurren Lagann also has a unique feel, especially with its intermission stills. You should check these out if you're in the mood for some blood-pumping action.
The main difference is that Dead Leaves is significantly more crude, raunchy, sex-based comedy, sex in general and possibly blood, but definitely animation style. By far. But both of them share mind-blowing explosions, escalating violence and feats of awesome badassery, style, ball busting action, a orgasmic amount of violence and carnage and both are rollercoaster rides from start to finish and keep a fast pace; immense fun for action fans.
The director of both anime definitely added some... insanity to both. Drills play a prominate and bizarre roll, there is a suppressed people, there are also people that aren't quite... normal looking... and there is some space travel involved.
So, if the interesting animation and storyline of one interested you, give the other a shot.
