have you watched Raxephon? im not into mecha at all,but this one is realy great.i tried to watch tengen,but was surprised from the first episode that its not cool at all.typcal mecha
I've seen RarXephon but didn't get around to finishing it. I lost interest around half way, probably because it was similar to Evangelion which I wasn't too fond of, but I've heard it's even better than Evangelion, so I might probably continue it again some time in the future.
As for Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, you should try watching at least the first eight episodes before dismissing it. Like you, I thought Gurren Lagann was just another boring and typical mecha anime. I also heard some hype over this show, and I was very skeptical about this anime from the very beginning. After the first few episodes, I thought this anime was just another overrated piece of nonsense, but I still continued watching it for a few more episodes, and then a major unpredictable twist suddenly occurred around episode eight and it totally changed my perception of this anime. After that, the anime just kept getting better and better every episode, with even more twists and turns, even more epic action and adventure, and even more heart and passion from the characters. Gurren Lagann is the rare kind of story that inspires you to never give up hope, no matter what kind of odds are stacked against you. Although I didn't even like this anime at first, I'm glad I gave it a chance, because Gurren Lagann is probably the most epic and inspiring piece of fiction I have ever seen!
