Oh, I didn't understand that TTGL was Gurren Lagan, I understand it now.

I don't think it's a good analogy really. Yuki Yuna is more like a cross between one of those "four cute schoolgirls after-school club" animes and Madoka. Sure, Yuki Yuna has some wacky battle scenes (psychidelic stuff done in CGI) but it's actually less wacky than the animation in Madoka. Madoka is in fact more "TTGL" than Yuki Yuna, hands down. Personally, I'd call Yuki Yuna the "poor man's Madoka". There's a reason Yuki Yuna isn't in fact all that well-known (note that Madoka has 8.3 on IMDB vs 6.6 for Yuki Yuna. It's not a "TTGL version" of Madoka, it's just a much worse version).

These shows really aren't "TTGL-like" at all. Madoka is Sailor Moon meets the bleak existentialism of Evangelion, and Yuki Yuna is effectively the same thing, but from more of a "schoolgirl quartet" sort of setting. They don't have the escalation or rule of cool element of TTGL or similar.

If you want anything like "magical girls meets Gurren Lagann", you really need to just go for Symphogear.

Plus, both come stocked with a good selection of waifus, which never hurts. :V
I make the assumption that someone who doesn't like fanservice doesn't want waifus.

Although something like Bunny-girl senpai manages to still be an awesome anime despite a reasonable amount of both.
That title steered me away for far longer than the producers were likely hoping.

That is amazing, though yeah unrelated (the character's great, the show and abridged show are great, he's not my type though).

I haven't been on in a while so I don't know if the anime My Love Story was discussed before. I just wanted to say it's the first anime I've ever seen that in one episode, Me and My Friends, made me both cry and snort milk out from my nose. A friend had recommended it some time ago and I am very happy to see it now.

Yep. BTW, the untranslated title is just "Me story!!" (Ore Monogatari!!). The point being that "ore" being the most masculine possible way to say "me", and they left out the "no" from "Ore no" (which would be "my"). The word "love" does not appear anywhere in the title.

The point of the original title is that it's ungrammatical and macho. "My love story" doesn't correctly capture that at all. It's a complete translation fail.

10$ says Chris Redfield could punch a moon fragment back into orbit.

Probably would have an 80's one liner instead of a song about friendship, though.

Are there any resident evil animes? Not counting the CGI movie they released a while back.

It wasn't smash, obviously enough, but yes. Apparently poker against the critter's brother, too.

I picked up Machikado Mazoku today, and I gotta say I'm rather liking it. Episodes 2 through 5 are mostly slice of life but episode 6 advances the plot and tomorrow episode 7, based the preview, will too. It's definitely paced for the seinen demographic, but it's cute and fun and seems slightly deeper than what you'd typically expect in an anime about cute girls from J.C. Staff. It definitely has lots of background details to notice, which is always nice and shows that the staff care about the project.

I don't think it's a good analogy really. Yuki Yuna is more like a cross between one of those "four cute schoolgirls after-school club" animes and Madoka. Sure, Yuki Yuna has some wacky battle scenes (psychidelic stuff done in CGI) but it's actually less wacky than the animation in Madoka. Madoka is in fact more "TTGL" than Yuki Yuna, hands down. Personally, I'd call Yuki Yuna the "poor man's Madoka". There's a reason Yuki Yuna isn't in fact all that well-known (note that Madoka has 8.3 on IMDB vs 6.6 for Yuki Yuna. It's not a "TTGL version" of Madoka, it's just a much worse version).

These shows really aren't "TTGL-like" at all. Madoka is Sailor Moon meets the bleak existentialism of Evangelion, and Yuki Yuna is effectively the same thing, but from more of a "schoolgirl quartet" sort of setting. They don't have the escalation or rule of cool element of TTGL or similar.

If you want anything like "magical girls meets Gurren Lagann", you really need to just go for Symphogear.

I don't think YuYuYu is worse necessarily, but it's subtler. And if you go into it knowing what it is, it's not as good as if you don't but that's part of why it was a sleeper when it was airing, and hardly anybody was watching it until like episode six.

That, and PMMM was first, and the Urobuchi over the top direction (and especially his excellent sound direction) really helped it. I thought the pace and tone progression of YuYuYu was better of the two though.

Nope. Yuyuyu is absolutely the TGGL to Madoka, because it's not about the animation style being "wacky".

It's about Yuyuyu being much, much less bleak in tone, it's about Yuyuyu delivering the message of "Determination and Willpower overcome incredible odds" much better than Madoka. It's about Yuyuyu being much bigger in scale than Madoka.
