A young male protagonist with a cute girl beside him, unidentifyable (did i just make up a new word?) action/fight scenes, fast-moving frames and story. Besides, Simon is clearly a copy of Naota. If you liked one, you will probably like the other.

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann has insane mecha action similar to Furi Kuri, even the drills thing. The whole series is mad and basically in the same genre.

FLCL and Lagann are Gainax's own flesh and blood, meaning that they contain incredible action with madness everywhere. Although for Lagann this is mostly true for first episodes, that's enough. Furthermore, both series showcase robots. In FLCL they come out of the hero's head, in Lagann they're head-shaped themselves.

These shows have the same style of animation, comedy and way over the top awesome fightscenes, though TTGL is somewhat less crazy. While FLCL spends time developing its characters and Gurren Lagann has a more palpable and classic story, they give off a very similar feel.

Furi Kuri is mainly a kid seeking out adventure and to escape the chains of what society has causing him to do. Well if you're looking for that adventure to take place then Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is your key to really FIGHT DA POWAH!

TTGL is similar to FLCL is random comedy and random events, but instead takes it to a basically epic level with more robots and extreme explosions!. So I highly recommend this anime to FLCL fans.

These two series have a lot in common. Since they're both made by the same company, GAINAX, then you can expect them to be a lot alike.

Both animes focus on growing up and becoming a man but they don't show it in a boring way. These animes will get you pumped and energized just from the first episode. The energy level in one anime is pretty much equal to the other. Other things these anime have in common are: they both focus on first love, estranged parent-child relationships, being yourself, mecha and how to be cool.

Both are from Gainax Studio, both are created by same team and both have a lot of crazy, insane, surrealistic, GAR scenes and battles. Also both begin with a child who is afraid of the situation in which he got (Simon and Naota Nandaba) and a conrade with a lot of EPIC moves (Kamina and Haruhara Haruko).

It's rare to find an anime, or any show for that matter, that illuminates the human spirit or emotion, but oddly enough both these anime do it. *neither of these anime are random, they are deliberate and informed.

Classic Gainax. From story and style to bizarre mecha and over the top action, both series share a similar epic quality amidst the chaos.

Both have over the top and stylized action and ridiculous and overreacting character animations.

If you thought FLCL was over-the-top fun, check out Gurren Lagann. The action is just as insane and it adds a whole lot of heart.

Well for starters, Gainax is involved in both series.

TTGL and FLCL incorporates the usage of action, drama, and comedy. The main characters becoming archetype heroes and some of the characters are totally crazy.

The animation visuals are also similar in both series that becomes quite addictive when mixed together with its action scenes. The way the humor is executed in both series is also quite entertaining that is often absurd and over-the-top.

Both series are quite unique and worth giving a shot.

Gainax was part of the FLCL Production Committee. About 6 years after FLCL, Gainax made Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. Like FLCL, it has some action, some comedy, some overtly sexual imagery, and it follows a young boy's path to adulthood and self-discovery.

Both are a coming of age Gainex anime with wacky adventures and animation.

If you liked the art on either of these series, I have good news for you. Both series look a lot like eachother when you compare the art. They both have some mecha elements. if you liked Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, you should try FLCL. Not everybody likes it, but if you do you'll be on for a very good ride.

Besides both being from Gainax, the two main protagonists are rather similar. They have mecha in them, and several parts that do not make any sense at all. They are more fun than great, but fun is good in its own right, right?
report Recommended by Fujaku
Both are super crazy, especially Gurren Lagann near the end. They also both include mech/ robot type thingys. Basically, whoever wrote either of them must have been going through some mental breakdown at the time.

These shows share almost everything to varying degrees, most notably their animation style and over the top nature.

Both are off the wall, eccentric and creative shows. They consist of insane battles and fun adventure. Although, FLCL is a lot more...difficult to follow. 2 highly enjoyable anime that are very entertaining.
report Recommended by TheChuckFinster
Super crazy and super fun screw common sense, the art still is similar and both are (in a way) a coming of age story where our protagonist realizes their worth in the universe.

TTGL and FLCL work well as brothers. Those two animes by Gainax are shounen-based mechas with a similar art style and the plot of growing up. FLCL is way more demential and shorter and TTGL is more easy-going, and both feature memorable characters and soundtrack. If you like one, you should love the other.

Two shows with over the top sillyness and similar overtones. Kick logic to the curb, sit back in your mecha and enjoy!
report Recommended by Bergulum
Same over the top action, animations, mecha, and studio. Both awesome anime.
