'Gurren Lagann' took a 'Notable' TV series award at the 2008 Tokyo International Anime Fair, which ranks it as one of the best Anime series among its peers. It also took an award of 'Excellence' at the 2007 Japan Media Arts Festival (which is sponsored by the Japan Ministry of Arts & Culture) placing it among a very limited number of Anime series that have accomplished this feat and ranking it among the best Anime to come out in the past decade...
'Gurren Lagann' is the GAINAX Studio homage to the traditional 'Giant Robot Saga', and is best described as an 'Over the Top' action adventure series. Just when you've seen a scene that you think that they can't top, they easily top themselves in one of the following episodes. The Movies are also Excellent, presenting a synopsis of the events of the TV series...
(And my favorite character is 'Nia', who continues the tradition of the quiet blue-haired Anime girl who turns out to be much more then she first appears...)
