Gurren Lagann is awesome. Up 'till a while ago, I had no clue there was a manga adaption. But I decided to review it. So how does it hold up? Does it pierce the heavens with it's drill? Or does it have yet to realize it's destiny? Lets dive in!
Story: Most of it's following the anime with small changes, but it gets a original story at one point. It's definitely not the most original, but those expexting the plot of the anime won't see much intrest.
Art: This is the part of the manga that shines. It captures the high pace franticness of the high-octane fight scenes, The zany comedy scenes. Everything looks crisp and well-fleshed out. The characters, the locations, it all looks nice.
Characters: If you've seen the anime, you know the drill (no pun intended.) Simon is that same determined young man who wishes to be like his bro. Kamina is still the same reckless badass who we all know and love. And Yoko is still our loaded pistol with a nice side. All are mostly the same.
Enjoyment: For those who own the anime, this belongs on your shelf. For those who don't...eh, watch the anime first.
Overall: So, all in all. the manga adaption of Gurren Lagann is a fun little joy ride while it lasts. If you've seen the anime, I'm sure you will get much more enjoyment. For those who haven't, its a nice throw into the world of mechas and beastmen. Overall: 7. read more
