That's like saying the Matrix is like the Bourne Supremacy.
Or Die Hard is like Wanted.

Two things that have people fighting for good?
NO.

In my mind, they are alike. Both comparisons. *shrug*.
Though less alike than the two anime.
And the Matrix is more like Wanted, and Bourne Supremacy more like Die hard.
Shoot em up, one with bending physics, the other with normal dudes.

I categorize things vaguely, like I said.

I suppose its a difference of how minds categorize.
Anyways, I don't like it. Those are my personal reasons. Such as they are.

The great thing about Gurenn Lagann is that is is a mashup of all the "bro" sort of Animes.
It's got the whole "getting better spiel", it's got giant robots, it's got sexy ladies, it's got brother figures and it plays everything really well. In ways it gets a sort of Tarantino like feel in that it avoids cliche by being so cliche. It achieves a character of its own.
If you don't like Gurenn Lagann, then I have to imagine the type of anime you like is the "girly stuff". There's probably some term for it. I don't know it.
p.s. Death Note is one of the "girly stuff" animes.

There is a difference between catagorizing and making a generalzation. All the examples you give are vague and not very accurate.

And I don't mean to make it sound like "girly stuff" anime is bad. I watch some of that shit too.
But it is nevertheless "girly stuff" and definitely emasculating.

I thought I said I was vague?


And yes. I like girly anime.

I think some might remember, though maybe not cause I'm not arrogant enough to think I'm highly rememberable, that I had a picture of myself covered in His and Hers Circumstances manga.

well then I understand where you're coming from. I can't really expect you to have a valid opinion of GL if you don't like the genre. Just like I don't have a constructive opinion of Ouran High School Host Club

I just find it annoying when you whine about a show of who's genre you don't even like, then say how different you are because of it.

I think we should just all have a round of "just saying" and call it concluded.

I'm just saying that girly animes suck.

I'd just like to say that I thoroughly enjoyed both Kare Kano and TTGL.

That is all.

I know, right? The funny thing is, it feels so cliche now and cheesy... but it's like one of the first "harem" animes. It's like Seinfeld. Seinfeld defined modern sitcoms like Friends. Watching Seinfeld now, though, some might mistake it for being dumb.
Don't get me wrong, though, Seinfeld may not be dumb but Love Hina is definitely dumb.
so... so dumb.

I still hate myself for watching that. And then all the holiday episodes. Christ I was stupid back then.

Remember when his sister comes towards the end of the series wanting his cock like she needs it to live, and somehow the church "marries" them or whatever? Jesus christ.

Pretty sure I watched most of it, but I got it off limewire back then.
I was also a hormonal teen. So. That may have had more than half to dow ith it.

I said I'm getting off but fuck I'm bored.

I agree. Friends is terrible.
But I'm a huge fan of Seinfeld.

With the random giant alligator? Oh Gooooooood this brings back too many memories.

Oh, oh, how about the one where they fucking ran away over the test scores? And the airport scene? I want to watch these again just for the pain.

YEAH!
The time both Keitaro and Naru break their glasses and they are embarrassed about their exams so they both go to Kyoto, bump into each other, have a great time... and then they find out who the other is and everything goes back to Naru cockblocking Keitaro at every turn.
