Never mind. Just checked wikipedia. Japanese perversion never ceases to amaze me. Make the 14 year olds look like they're in their 20's and the 17-18 year olds look like their 12. Those kooky Japanese...

[spoiler]Ok...ep 13...some interesting developments and speculations. Looks like our Great Gurren Brigade will aquire a flying fortress ganmen soon...as well as maybe a Viral :O That's my guess at least..he's been shit on so much, and starts to question his masters after finding out that it was Simoun that kicked his ass in the last battle. "WHAT ARE HUMANS?" Also, Yoko taking up Kamina's old seat in the Gurren Lagann... could get... interesting... although I still think the SimounxYoko needs to not happen. maybe. but then again, if

It's funny how Nia is suppose to be 17 and Yoko is 14.


then that kinda makes more sense to me...I always figured Yoko was in her late teens early twenties and that Simoun was probably more like 14. But I still don't like that pairing :/ I guess we'll see. [/spoiler]

[spoiler]While I hope that Viral does end up with them, I'm not sure it's going to happen, at least not just yet. I get the feeling that Spiral King is going to "promote" Viral, seeing as he's the only one who isn't an arrogant ass, and he's the only one who's noticed humans aren't as inferior as they're made out to be. I really do hope he ends up in the Brigade, though.

As for Simon X Yoko, I'm with you on that on, ZS. I really hope it doesn't happen. Considering the next episode preview it probably will though, last time a character said goodbye in the preview it didn't end well for them... :(

If they kill off Nia, it'll take a lot for me to keep watching...[/spoiler]

Well shitsticks...


This is both awesome and sad. I don't want to wait to finish it. :cry:

Guess I'll get to start on the AMV I'm planning sooner, though.

and who seriously didn't expect that to happen?

This is perfect material to get american shonen audiences into anime.

I'm willing to bet it wills how up on some form of television, such as adult swim at some point aswell.

Oh I fully expected it to happen, I was just (naively) hoping it would happen after the fansubs were done.

Knowing the current subbers, I wouldn't expect them to stop any time soon :3

So far I'm still definately buying this when it comes out on dvd...they'd have to either

[spoiler]kill off Yoko...or have Yoko x Simoun for me to quit watching probably.[/spoiler]

for me not to.

Wow, I'd swear that was an ending if I didn't know the show was 26 episodes long.

[spoiler]
Viral's probably ending up in the brigade by the looks of it.

Dai Gurren's half dead. I'm guessing it's going to get a new "boat." Maybe indeed a flying one.

And it's definitely Simon x Nia, not Simon x Yoko thankfully.

Crap, all this new shtuff and no time to look at this series though i did note something...

all the h-doujin sites I traverse seem to have this anime OVERFLOWING [no pun intended] past Haruhi in terms of new releases and popularity.

Is this anime THAT massively 'desired'? Should I try to get into watching it now? [as I've missed 13+ eps already :(]

Watch it. Freakin do it. It's epic.



[spoiler]After the results of ep 15, and now seeing this little trailer material for ep 17, some stuff is gonna hit the fan...this is kindof an unusual thing in an anime series isn't it?

To take a jump in time like this? Are there any other shows that do this? We have 10 eps left starting with #17, so it should be interesting to see what they do with that amount of time.

awsm for Viral joining the brigade...also awsm for Simoun x Nia.[/spoiler]

Fans of Simon x Nia will both love and hate episode 17.

[spoiler]
Something inside Nia is the destroyer from the moon?

And poor Viral. This episode actually made me feel sorry for him.

Seriously...this has taken a rather dramatic, complicated, and GAR twist.

I'm really really really excited :o

Tepperin has become a thriving city renamed after Kamina, Simoun is in control, Rossiu is in somewhat of a dissent over how things should be going, everything is getting complicated.

Yoko has left and is nowhere to be seen. I have a feeling she's gonna show up a little later, hopefully she'll blow a lot of shit up and look awsm doing it.

Nia X Simoun...yay.

Nia = the enemy......yay! no wait :/

yay!
