Claymore & Tengen Toppa Gurren-LagannApril 10, 2007
I’m not very much into serious animes, normally there should be at least some humorous elements for me, but regardless of this Claymore caught my attention (and I guess there won’t be much to laugh about). Can’t point my finger on something specific, the whole episode was just pretty interesting and everything fits quite nicely. I’m not very fond of the artwork style though, but it suits the atmosphere of this series and I’m already used to it after the first episode.
Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann
The first thing I read about this series was that it somehow resembles FLCL, which did not rise my anticipation to watch it because I didn’t enjoyed FLCL that much. None the less the first episode of Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann was quite fun, although the pace is a bit to fast for my taste and doesn’t help to enjoy the well executed animation and artwork to it’s fullest. The scenario looks interesting and even the mechas seem to be at least acceptable. And if it really resembles FLCL is something I can barely judge because, well, I can’t remember very much of that series to tell the truth. But I wasn’t as nearly as confused after this episode as I was after each FLCL episode (maybe this counts something).
