Johnny Yong Bosch,
Seven years after the defeat of the Spiral King, Simon and the Dai-Gurren brigade must set out to the vastness of space to defeat a new threat and save the universe. The last high-stakes battle for Simon and his team is about to begin.
This is an amazing series. The artwork is startling... styles shift frenetically but never without reason. While it's very abstract and stylised it never gets distracting, except every now and then when you suddenly realise just how beautiful it looks.. very impressionistic and evocative. The use of light and video textures is incredible. Production values all round are jaw-dropping... great soundtrack, stellar voice acting and scriptwriting.
This series offers a really original take on the 'sleeper' monster genre. It's also a love story which is executed beautifully well. Most of all it is gripping, atmospheric sci-fi/horror drama that has something to say beyond just trying to entertain. I think it has appeal for people who aren't classic 'anime freaks'. I'm convinced the director, Masaaki Yuasa, is destined for greatness. Make sure you watch his movie 'Mind Game'.
