I highly recommend this series to anyone that has a healthy (or unhealthy, whatever the case may be) interest in Sci-Fi stories that revolve around time travel. The characters are likeable, the plot flows well, and it has a good deal of eye candy action sequences. However, what I like best about it is that it makes you think and any media that does that is a good thing. Enjoy.

I was very surprised by this anime with how deep the plot was in only twelve episodes. Many of the twists I didn’t see coming. Generator Gawl’s story starts out slow but it was fast enough to keep you interesting in what was going to happen next. My two problems with this series are firstly that the first half of the series could have had a bit more plot development than it did rather than a monster of the week show. Secondly the School Festival episode was entirely useless. It had a little plot development but it could have been spread between the first read more

If youre a fan of scifi action anime, this is the show for you. I love an anime that has good fight scenes, and Generator Gawl does not disapoint. The characters become likeable very quickly. While in some shows humor seems to ruin the mood, Generator Gawl makes it work, some scenes are downright hillarious. The storyline is one that gets you thinking, sometimes you have no idea whats going to happen next and thats what makes the series so great. Overall, this anime is definately worth checking out.

I have a bit of a bias, as this is my favorite anime, but I'll try and be unbiased in my review.

The story is not too average, though it is in a typical school setting and has the typical characters-types (quiet one, spaz, girl-and-boy-who-start-off-hating-each-other-and-end-up-falling-in-love), but it deals with real-world morality issues, like cloning and nuclear-holocaust. There are many subtleties that you'll have to re-watch the anime to pick up, including an "oh shit" moment at the end that you have to catch the first time. Just try watching the opening after seeing the last episode and try not saying "Oh, man, how did read more
