Gurren Lagann - The Power of Hope

One of the most special things about anime is how it is a medium all of its own; it's different from Western animation in terms of style and how the Japanese culture and ideas influence the stories and characters that inspire it, and visuals are often too imaginative for anything to be caught on actual film, or to be read on a page. Sometimes shows are capable of transcending the media that is set before it and it becomes a classic both visually and in terms of thematic storytelling. One of the most popular mecha shows of all time, Gurren Lagann, vaults over the possible in terms of animation and character and places itself as one of the most special and inspiring pieces of fiction ever to be created.

Comic Book Reviews - May 9, 2018

In a week dominated by DC, it takes a certain anti-hero from Marvel to rise above the rest. But that doesn't mean we get shirked some goodies, like a whole heaping of Stephanie Brown, or a ton of emotions with Wally West! Also the Justice League has to fix the broken Source Wall. No biggie.
