Reviews

Episodes 1-9 of the Japanese anime series. In his underground village Simon toils daily, drilling holes to expand his stifling little world until one day he makes an extraordinary discovery: a small glowing drill-bit and the man-sized mecha it activates. Reluctantly, Simon finds himself dragged into an attempt by the local gang leader Kamina to break through to the surface - only for the ceiling to come crashing down on top of them under the weight of a giant monster. The boisterous Kamina and the cowardly Simon must now do everything they can to defend their village - but once they have defeated the monster, what unknown horrors await them on the surface world?

Before I write anything else, it's worth noting for this series only, I will name a few things this anime contains before the review in question.

1 - Drills.
2 - Manlyness
3 - Mecha
4 - Large Breasted Lead female.
5 - Awesomeness beyond anything known before in Anime.
6 - ROW ROW FIGHT DA POWA.

Now my review.

This anime was made by Gainax, the people behind Evangelion.

Humankind has long since lived underground in Villages, unknown to them that above them lies a surface, a sky, a wide open world that has yet to be explored, a world with unknown dangers.

Such dangers are the Beastmen, these beings exist on the surface controlling Gunmen that more often or not are used to kill any human who dared step up onto the surface.

Enter Simon, a young boy living in Jiha village, he speands his days drilling holes and expanding the Village and just living out his life the best way he can.

Enter Kamina, a manly character who is also the *Big Bro* of Simon, he has a fearless attitude and an almost carefree spirit, he longs to finally go up onto the surface.

Enter Yoko, a young female character who wears not very much clothing, a large breasted female with a huge Gun. And a firey spirit.

Enter Boota, a pigmole like animal that joins Simon and Kamina on their adventures.

What do you get when you pair all 3? Team Gurren.
Without Spoiling an epic Mecha named Gurren Lagann Is born, Beastmen are battled, bathouses full of skimpy clothed females is visited. And more.

This is regarding by many as one of the best anime shows ever produced.

Suitable for Teens/Adults and older, this isnt a childish anime, and is one of the most entertaining shows ever made.

Strap yourself in and brace yourself for the biggest anime event of 2009. This is Gurren Lagann part 1. The story starts with young Simon (pronounced sea-moan) living a sheltered life (quite literally) underground. Orphaned as a child, hasn't has the best life and he spends the most part of his time drilling tunnels for the oppressive underground leaders he serves. That is until he comes across Lagann; a mecha who he manages to activate. Accompanied by his 'bro', the hotheaded, loudmouth Kamina and his newfound mecha they drill their way to the surface. After getting their first taste of freedom, the duo are confronted by the villainous beastmen and their huge mecha, known as gunmen who terrorise the surface by day. They also bump into feisty red head Yoko who explains that the surface isn't all it's cracked up to be. With war breaking out, Kamina gathers human resistance and forms team Gurren. This ragtag group of heroes go about taking down the beastmen forces and achieving peace on the surface.

If I had to summarize Gurren Lagann, I'd have to say that it is 'pure entertainment'. Everything, from the chracters to the animation is spot on and most definetly memorable. Created by studio Gainax, the acclaimed group that brought the anime world classic titles such as Evangelion and FLCL, Gurren Laggan truly lives up to it's hype and surpasses expectations. Those familiar with Gainax may be familiar with the hyper active and fast paced style of the story telling that Gurren Laggan undertakes. Everything about this show is BIG and over the top, and that makes for a thoroughly enjoyable anime that feels very big budget and high production. The characters are every bit as crazy and larger than life that can be expected from a show like this.
