10 Original Anime That Prove Source Material Isn’t Necessary

While they may not be nearly as common as anime based on existing properties, original anime do exist. Designed fresh from a concept or idea that hasn’t been put to paper yet, they exemplify the medium in its purest form and prove that stories can exist and be created solely for anime. Of those shows, these are the 10 original anime that prove source material isn’t necessary.

To say there aren’t many shows like Gurren Lagann would be an understatement.

Taking an overarching theme of “Spirals” and running with it in the most ludicrous directions possible, the show embraces imaginative mecha combat like few others in the medium. It bounces between wars for the fate of humanity, giant robots clashing via attacks with long-winded names, and declarations about each characters’ manliness on a whim, but it always does so in a way that’s entertaining and impossible to look away from.

Adding to this is the feeling that everything was designed first and foremost for animation. Each character and mech looks tailor-made for motion, with characteristics and physical traits that help them feel alive with each frame that passes.

It’s a must-arch for ay anime fan, and a go-to example of great anime made from scratch.
