22 July 2014 | by (New york) – See all my reviews

Gurren lagann review Animation: 8.5/10, good but episode 4 is so ugly which lowers the overall score Music: 7/10, not bad not that good either Fights: 9.5/10, GIGA DRILL BREAK, Stuff blows up, BAMMA WOOOM Protagonist: 10/10, a cliché character ramped up to INSANE LEVELS Badass side character: 10/10, OMG BEST CHARACTER EVER, KAMINA IS BRILLIANT. WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK I AM Antagonist: 9/10, really misunderstood The rest of the cast: 8/10, I don't care, except Yoko Story: 8.8/10, Interesting… Enjoyment: 9/10, I loved it Ending: 9/10, SO BEAUTIFUL, but that end credits scene depressed me.

Final verdict: 8.88/10, This series was truly amazing and I highly recommend watching it.
