>Gurren Lagann was nothing more than a self-indulgent revival of 70s and 80s anime characteristics including drill arm robots like Getter Robo and Baratack, homage to Captain Harlock, Gunbuster's spirit of courage overcoming all obstacles, the passionate masculinity of St. Seiya and Otoko Juku, and the kinetic, highly detailed sci-fi animation of 80s sci-fi anime including Birth, Cool Cool Bye, and Harmageddon. Yet despite Gurren Lagann being just a revival of old anime concepts, it managed to strike a chord with contemporary American fans - many of whom hadn't even been born yet when some of what Gurren Lagann harkens back to originally appeared.
