Needless is the second anime off my interesting summer 2009 anime watchlist. It was chosen purely because of my post apocalyptic Japan anime addiction as I read in the description that due to some kind of war Tokyo (or at least a part of it) has been destroy(again). Yes I know it gets old after the first couple hundred thousand times for most people, but for me I just can’t help but watch, and that’s what I am doing.
My biggest fear with Needless was that after the first few episodes I would lose interest like I did with Shangi-la but so far the epicness of Needless has been epic that I am epically hooked on it’s epical awesomeness. It barely has a plot and frequently makes no sense but this is anime right so who says it still can’t be enjoyed?

Needless has been compared to Gurren Lagann a lot. For those who don’t know Gurren Lagann it is another high energy anime with one of the main characters being larger than life itself. This comparison I think is justifiable. Take the high energy, baseless plot and add in a retarded lead, a scantily clad female and a professor/doctor/engineer of sorts and you have the Needless formula (isn’t that the Gurren Lagann formula?). Perfect for lazy brainfree (no not brainless) anime watching. I’ll be watching Needless unless I grow bored of it and it you liked Gurren Lagann you should watch it too.
