* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The show never made that big of an impact in Japan, where its big brother, ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', holds massive ubiquity. In America, where ''Evangelion'' doesn't hold as much influence (even if it still remains a well-remembered classic in the anime community), ''Gurren Lagann'' has had much more success critically and commercially, nearly on par with ''Evangelion''.

* UnfortunateImplications: Yoko is ''insanely'' sexualised despite being a fourteen-year-old. (Given that Asuka & Rei, two fourteen-year-olds, are heavily sexualised - more in the merchandise than in the show - in ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', and the creepy sexual content involving Naota and Eri in ''Anime/{{FLCL}}'', who are ''twelve'', Creator/StudioGainax's track record in this regard is questionable.)

Added DiffLines:

* GrowingTheBeard: It's more or less unanimously agreed that the show really picks up after [[spoiler:Kamina dies]], shifting from an episodic and highly comedic format to a more serious and plot-driven one. The series' signature SerialEscalation of BeyondTheImpossible badassery is also finally introduced. Somewhat ironic, given that [[spoiler:Kamina is regularly seen as the series' most popular character.]]

* EvilIsCool: [[BigBad Lordgenome]], the tall, muscular EvilOverlord who pilots a pitch-black Gunmen, and isn't afraid to fight Lagann with his bare hands.

[[spoiler:It helps that he's a genuinely well-rounded, [[TragicVillain sympathetic character]] and pulls off one of the series' best {{Heroic Sacrifice}}s.]]

** Yoko has gained a notable VocalMinority, calling her out for being unnecessary fanservice and adding nothing to the series. Most people tend to see her as a competent ActionGirl with a good deal of CharacterDevelopment of her own.

** Yoko has gained a notable VocalMinority, calling her out for being unnecessary fanservice and adding nothing to the series. Most people tend to see her as a competent ActionGirl with a good deal of CharacterDevelopment of her own. Like Kamina, she suffers from HypeBacklash in some communities for being one of the most iconic characters but never being a central focus of the story.
