I don't think I've ever felt so much affection for the staff of an anime as I do for the guys who made Gurren Lagann. The closest thing to it would be my love for Hiromu Arakawa.
From the interviews I've read, and having heard them on radio, they both come across as extremely dorky and fun people. How they come up with things is...ridiculous and LOL and awesome. Sometimes I think "OMG you can't be serious hahaha" but that just adds to their charm.
Gainax staff FTW. ♥
