Haters gonna Hate...

...But if I had a list of all the things that this franchise has done so far, this would be at the very bottom. The series is a spin off of the OVA, Not a sequel like I was hopping. Still, I wasn't disappointed with this. The music is better, and the action is in all ways made by Mr. Gurren Lagann himself. Black Rock Shooter to me is the School life version of that near perfect anime (HIGH RECOMMENDATION). The only real and I think we can all agree upon flaw to the series is the story. Its like a Manga, it's played out through character conflicts and Arc's and at times it's very confusing, and there's no buildup it's just... ehh... In the end, BRS is good. Best thing in the world, nah. But if you're looking for a good and short anime Action-Drama with the Tim Burton Formula (not to add the best in recent years) give this a shot. On another note: Some people mentioned not sticking to the source material as a flaw.... Your joking right?? The source material to this is A illustration, A drawing by a guy named Huke. That became a music video soon after that. To put that in lambent terms, what source material did they have in the first place??? All that they had was what she looked like and that she had a minor case of depression. Sometimes I wonder how "professionals" keep there jobs...
