So awhile back I asked if anyone wanted to hear my theory about Gurren Lagann that mostly centered around Boota and I was pretty much begged to share my thoughts but I haven’t had the time to create a great big post about it. Well I’ve finally taken some time compose my thoughts on it with the help of a few screens. Now I will say this as a little disclaimer; this is my head canon, I have -some- proof but no definitive way of saying this is 100% legit. But logically it all makes sense to me. This is also why I want a 3rd season, a prequel to the series, to either confirm or disprove my theories.
First off; why exactly did Boota transform into a humanoid form towards the end of the series?

Calling it now.
The reason Samumenco has had such shitty animation is because they’re storyboarding and animating as they go. After each episode, Manglobe watches the 2ch threads and sees what theories they come up with. They then implement the most popular ones into the show. The fan theories then become self-fulfilling prophecies. The fans are in direct control of the outcome of the show. The fans are Flamwenco.
I want to believe it….but a part of me refuses….
