Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann (Afterthoughts)
Yay! I finished another mecha anime!
Yeah, it really is something even though it is under mecha stuff.
I thought Kamina is the hero of this anime because he seems very famous on the forums and everywhere. I didn’t knew that such event could happen. I’m actually always annoyed by what he says like “Believe in yourself! Not you, who i believe in. Not me, who believes in you. Believe in you.. who believes in himself!”
I’m very fond of this scene because it’s hell funny… I have to admit, the transformations and evolutions of each combination is very exaggerated. But I enjoy the hell out of it. Hahaha, Looks like I’m starting to like mecha stuffs now.
The idea that strike my mind while watching this show was the thing about the “spirals/humans”. What the anti-spirals says about being the threat of humans is true… That humans will soon be the one to destroy the whole universe if the spiral energy continues to grow.
Is it that bad for humans to seek the heavens? I’m certain at one point, humans won’t be contented of what they have at the present. That is why they crave for something more bigger. That only fear and despair could stop them. Even though we are trying to seek the heavens, I hope there won’t be a time where humans play the role of God. I think that is what the anti-spirals wanted to prevent. One might say that they feel inferior to their selves or they just know the extent of their capabilities. Even if they do that, they only tried to runaway. Unlike the Dai-Gurren that tried to strengthen their selves every second. I just hope that humans chose the right choice of living under the sky. or we should have lived underground for the rest of our lives…
I was sad with Simon and Nia’s ending. I thought they will live happily ever after.
Anyway, Simon knew it all along. Nia fought so that she would last so he really appreciated what she have done to him.
I was very surprised with Yoko’s ending… I was very depressed by what I have seen. Good thing they didn’t show her face…
I hope that the government there is like the government here in the real world. I’m not saying that government should be doing all the fights while all the citizens are rest assured. It’s just that they are very blazing with power that anyone respects them for that. Although there are some conspiracies concerning Rossiu, I know that there would be always something like that. At first, I want to kill Rossiu because of what he have done but I also realized later in the anime that it was also hard for him to do such thing.
The final fight was also surprising… This is not Gundam so why? It is not Sunrise as well…? Why is it tragedy? 🙁
This anime deserve a slot on the Top 10. When I first saw it on the list, I was surprised because I didn’t know it was this superb.~
