Is it just me or am I the only one who actually thought that Gurren Lagann was mostly bland? The fight scenes were good but the rest never resonated with me. Maybe it just isn't my cup of tea but there's mecha anime that are better than Gurren Lagann.
I'm currently watching Elder God Demonbane, an another mecha anime as of me typing this comment.Unpopular opinion: Gundam SEED is the best mecha anime I've ever watched so far and I think it gets more hate than it actually deserves. I know why people hate SEED and SEED Destiny so much is because they claim that Kira Yamato is a Gary Stu and Shinn Asuka is just some generic whiny emo while they are not. A Gary Stu is someone who has no faults at all and Kira has some faults but him being the Ultimate Coordinator doesn't make him one. Shinn is blatantly angst because of Kira killing his parents and little sister during the 1st Bloody Valentine War. The only characters I personally found annoying were Meer Campbell (because she pesters Athrun a lot and thinks that she is the real Lacus Clyne even in death) and Flay Allster (because she is very manipulative towards Kira and is very gene-cist against Coordinators. I'm so glad that they killed off those two near the end of both series. They might not be perfect but Gundam SEED and SEED Destiny are certainly better than Gurren Lagann in my humble opinion.
My current Blogspot avatar is the Strike Freedom Gundam from SEED Destiny because I just love SEED and SEED Destiny so much! :)
