I absolutely LOVED the first episode. Hopefully the budget wasn't killed with it, haha. Can't wait for more! (Youko FTW)

It was subbed by "ADTRW", search for lagann on tokyotosho and you'll find it.

All the freaking characters were hilarious! I was surprised... I wasn't sure I was gonna like this show much. I very much enjoy the visual style... it helps that Yoko is pretty much the hottest thing ever >.>

My thoughts exactly. I wasn't even going to give it a chance, but Yoko somehow convinced me and I loved it. All the characters are great, and it's quite entertaining. Definitely a keepe

I have a bad feeling that this anime is going to keep me in my room for all day xD

Awesome first episode, really enjoyed it!
Already reminds me of Furi Kuri, and that show is one of my favourites :)

First ep done, 26 more to go.

This was awesome. I can definetley say i did not get what i was expecting, Yoko's voice isnt what i was expecting it to be after all the images and stuff i've seen of her, same with Kamina, however i got used to Yoko's by the end of the episode and Kamina's in 18.4201 seconds.

I'll probably not wait for KAA's releases and just download whats there, as this seems like a show i'll be marathoning like hell.

KAA is still subbing this? Seems a bit late ... I guess? I'm not expert on the world of subbing though, heh.

Yeah, episode 1 is really over the top and epic. I've seen it a few times (showed friends), it's great.

KAA is slow as hell, but there quality is simply perfect. Thats why I usually only get their work they have already completley done the show. I was planning on waiting for them to do complete TTGL before i watched it, but seeing as theres a movie coming out and im on holidays right now i decided i might as well watch it now.

edit: oh my god my grammer, sentence structure and everything is simply superb there, that i shall not change its epicness.

It's the top rated show so I thought I'd check it out. Seems promising, I've been looking for a really good adventure show recently and I think I've found it.

According to your list, you haven't even seen any mecha. How do you know you don't like it?

This is mad... I like it :D

Very interesting, it's got everything: action, comedy, even a bit of ecchi towards the end O_O

I just realised that if this show is good, people will watch it because of its no.1 spot, which will keep it at no.1 and make more people watch it etc...

Looking forward to the rest...

Oh God the sexism in language. I'm getting tired of seeing it lately.
Stupid Kamina. I really hate him despite his viva la resistance coolness.

And what the hell is with a guy always apologizing when he falls on a girl's breasts?
It was probably more her fault than his.

Any, good response by Yoko though. Lack of Victorian gender role that women are supposed to be the "gatekeepers" and avoid sexual contact at all possible.

Oh dear though, that means Yoko is a Shotacon.XD
Yeeeeah, Shota fanservice!

After just watching the first episode, I have no excuse for not watching this when it premiered.

Oh god it was epic. I don't think I've ever loved an anime this much just by watching the first episode.

I don't have a good excuse either, except maybe that during the time period this anime aired, I had taken a break on anime during the year of 2007, and missed out various shows.

What REALLY suprised me, was Yoko's voice and personality! I've seen countless images on this show, and Yoko especially. I assumed her to be, different. Though I'm glad I was wrong because I instantly fell in love with her, and usually I don't fall for a character unless I'm 3-4 eps in! She was fantastic, this show all together was just amazing! I would marathon it, but something tells me I should treasure it while it lasts :D<3

Well, colour me pleasantly surprised! That was quite entertaining.

Although, I couldn't help but notice:
Girl with big, long gun; guy with rather long sword; the many, many drills; the insertion of that little drill in the "Lagann" to start it up...Phallic much? This would have been Freud's dream!

Also, the whole breaking through the ceiling into forbidden territory, and finding a whole new world of peril? It's almost like the rebellion of youth and the consequent headlong rush into the harsh reality of the real world our parents kind of shielded us from as we were growing up.

I think I'm going to like this series!

Well since TTGL is ranked number one I was expecting it to stort of with a bang. And oh my God, did it. That was an awesome episode and a great start to the number one anime on MAL. I really loved it.

Kamina: Look, Simon! Don't believe in yourself! I believe in you. Believe that I believe!

-> I LOL'ed real hard reading that =))

Yoko: It's no good! It's too tight!
Kamina: Don't use that strange voice in here!

-> OMG! =)) Moe factor lol... So moe XD

Yoko: Eh? What's this creature making himself comfortable in my breasts ?
Kamina (says to Simon): Say... which do you think is tastier ?

-> ROFL !!! =)) Literally ROFL-ing =))



First time I watch a type of crazy anime like this one and enjoy it at the same time XD. I feel like Kamina is gonna be my favorite character already... About Yoko, lol... Love her voice... and... *Cough Cough*... her assets and outfit too, LOL!!! =))

Can't wait till episode 2 :P

... I really don't know why I didn't watch this series until now. I mean, I know that a lot of people hold it in high regard as it being a really good anime, but I didn't think it was THIS good. O______O

But what a way to leave us at a cliffhanger. D:
