GGG/TTGL Rebuttal written article version/followup

Clawshrimpy here again.

some people had asked me to produce a transcript for my audio commentary a post ago, which I can understand folks not wanting to listen to all of it as it’s nearly an hour long, so I’ve decided to do a different take on it in text format. this will not be a straight transcript though, I’ll be changing stuff around. So treat this more as my first written article. Click and read on…

A Rebuttal: GaoGaiGar v.s. Gurren Lagann rant

Hey, this is Clawshrimpy, the next video is coming, but I’d decided to throw up a quick pece of content again, although it’s more of a rant. 😦

As some of you know, I like to occasionally like to get on a soapbox about a lot of varying issues, In this case, a reviewer at a blog called TheRossman had a review of GaoGaiGar which piqued my curiosity, as GGG fans are a bit rare and I always get excited if someone tries to watch the show for the first time (like a few people had thanks to my retrospective series, judging from e-mails.) However it was a very negative review that I felt got a lot wrong abut the show and painted a negative, misleading picture of the show….. while at the same time trying to hold up Gurren Lagann. Big. Mistake. SO I decided to do a commentary and rebuttal of his “review”

the audio file is quite long, 50ish minutes, so I’d recommend doing something else in the background as you listen. Which is why this isn’t a video.

First, here’s a link to this “review” of GaoGaiGar for relevence:

Seriously? The Carpenters are a plot contrivance? what about Spiral Energy then?

(it’s the first review you’ll see on the page.)
