* FreudWasRight:
** Canti's gun, Naota's 'protrusions'... there's more phallic imagery than some ''hentai''.
** Haruko's reactions to her electric massage.
** The manga adaptation was [[SerialEscalation even more explicit about it]].

* EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory: Read more in Fridge but you can take the plot as how literally comes. A kid, meets an alien that wants to use his head that develops an adolescent skin condition that opens a interspacial portal where to bring the power of a space pirate. Or you can look the symbolism as see it as a big allegory to puberty, from meeting a new girl, getting all kinds of horny, quite literally, let your manhood pour out, becoming an adult and what does this means, after all, nothing interesting happens in Mabase.
** It doesn't helps that the manga seems to lean to the literal interpretation, but Gainax and part of the crew would move to make ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' another anime in which much about what happens relates to emotions, manliness and growing up.

* GatewaySeries: The soundtrack acts as the perfect gateway to ''Music/ThePillows''. As a gateway series to the genre of ''anime'' however, it's probably not the best choice (unless you're one of those people who believe that [[AllAnimeIsNaughtyTentacles Japanese cartoons are weird and/or sexually deviant]], and you need proof of this for your friends).

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: This series is almost completely unknown in Japan, even amongst otaku of the time. American anime fans, however, love it. That Creator/AdultSwim pushed it relentlessly didn't hurt. Creator/{{Funimation}}'s decision to bring the show back into print was treated as a Very Big Deal.

That Creator/AdultSwim pushed it relentlessly didn't hurt. Creator/{{Funimation}}'s decision to bring the show back into print was treated as a Very Big Deal. The show's popularity among Americans and the staff at [adult swim] eventually reached the point where, in 2016, it was announced that Cartoon Network would be partnering with Production IG to produce two more seasons of the show, something which only occurred one other time in the past with the series ''Anime/TheBigO''.
