Gurren-Lagann is a strong statement about the animation industry. It's about the progress of visual narrative; ideally conveys the idea of how new productions shouldn't forget the more expressive, cartoony, ideals of the past while still moving forward towards an unknown future.

FLCL was also about the animation industry. About how directors trying to be "mature" will never accomplish this purpose no matter how hard they try. The one path of a true storyteller is to be honest, no matter how silly.

As you may guess, MindGame also follows Yuasa's opinion on the animation industry. He incites people to take risks, to go for the more crazy ideas and lose yourself into the possibilities of the medium.
