Ok, he's probably not fit to be the president, but he probably should still be in the government. It just seemed like such a sad existence for him after he basically saved the universe. Or maybe he could have married Yoko instead.[/spoiler]


Yeah that really is stupid

But it still doesn't take away from the epic awesomeness of this series. 8-)

I'm still new to anime, but I've seen quite a few bad endings to series. Doesn't ruin the series for me, but makes me feel disappointed. Too many characters dying, unanswered questions, etc. :?

Hey you're almost as new to the forum as me! Although I've been into anime for 4 years now but have only recently gone otaku.

Meh......... the fighting in the last couple of episodes {23-27 i think} are pretty awesome. But yeah I hated how cliche the anime became at the end. It got really boring and un-enjoyable compared to the first couple of episodes :l

By the end, do you mean the last couple of minutes after the fight? The epilogue?
'Cause after the epic fight... there isn't much more to be bored of.

I kinda spoilt the series for myself midway through by checking out wikipedia and finding out about the time skip. At first I was like "huh?!" and true enough I felt the same when it started off - some characters had become kinda annoying. However the moment some unexpected characters teamed up everything became awesome again. Definitely best show I've seen in a while!

lol I did the same. I got so mad. I've learned to hate spoilers ever since I spoiled Sims 2 for me. I never touched the game again.

Sims 2 spoiler DO NOT READ unless you don't play the game or have beaten it
[spoiler] I was so depressed when I found out how the game ends, It just ends, nothing else, it has NO conclusion.[/spoiler]

Maybe old news to a lot of people, but
http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2008-03-10/gurren-lagann-movie-to-open-in-japan-in-fall-2008

Apparently a retelling of the TV series.
