Gurren Lagann was among the very first let’s say 5 anime I have watched and I absolutely loved it but didn’t realize how “anime” this anime actually is. Everything about this over the top silly show from its underlying mature themes to its main characters being the embodyment of character development incarnate to the best consecutively appearing,

increasingly amazing anime speeches to the stunning visuals, shots and directing, to the balls ~ to ~ the ~ wall incredible soundtrack (from which Libera Me From Hell is STILL in my top 3 favorite sinlge OSTs in all of anime, along with “Next to you” from Parasyte and “Believe me” from Steins Gate) is simply an incredible experience.

I recently rewatched it again and even after having now watched approximately 150 anime (including movies) it is STILL in my top 15 and I maybe even wanna rate it higher than that. It also just gets elevated by how well everything comes completely full circle in the final episodes.

The ending of the show is among my holy trinity of anime finales that I think no other shows I’ve seen has even come close to in terms of quality (along with Code Geass and Mawaru Penguindrum).

“The lights in the sky are stars ….. star where our spiral cousins are waiting for us” might just as easily be my favorite closing line out of anything
