Leeron's voice gave me shivers today on Sci-Fi.

Viral's voice better kick ass next week for replacing Vic.

I'm sorry but Kamina's English Dub actor did no justice to the original voice actor |:

I watched the first 15 minutes or so on the scifi website before I couldn't take it anymore.

On another note, I was in Japantown, San Fran yesterday looking around and saw Gurren Lagann vol2 in one of the stores. I thought for sure it must be a bootleg; the second DVD doesn't come out 'till August 5th right? I looked all over the box and it appeared legit; there weren't any conspicuous Chinese subtitles or typos or any other bootlegger trademarks. I decided not to buy it though, and instead went and got Groundwork of Gurren Lagann 1 for the high, high price of $46 (it even says Ұ3000 on the damn book :roll: )

:shock:
I just watched the first 3 episodes.
I HIGHLY approve of this. :up:
Mecha monster kick ass-ery.
I was expecting it to be good, but not too good. And I gotta say... I am very impressed. The first episode started out actiony right away and the third episode... Good fight scenes.

I'll definitely continue with this series.

I watched the first ten episodes the other day(despite having all of them...) and I gotta say that I feel even stupider than I did when I mistook a code gease sceenshot for this series and stayed away...

You're telling me that you haven't been watching this piece of heaven on Sci-Fi at least?

I actually happened to watch an episode on Sci-Fi the other day, and I have to say I was impressed with the dub. I thought it was actually done rather well. :up:

Well, the first movie's just been released, and it was not-surprisingly AWESOMECORE.
It summarizes the first 14 or so episodes of the show, ending right before the battle of Teppelin. I assumed that we would get through everything before the timeskip, but the creators determined that the fall of Lord Genome would be better saved for the next movie. And for what they replaced with that I don't mind in the slightest.

There is a two minute clip of new footage at the beginning, showing obscurely the first Anti-Spiral Earth War, ending with the Spiral King's enslavement of Earth. After that, the next hour and 20 minutes is summarization of everything from the beginning of the show to Nia's confrontation with the Scorpion Lady atop the Dai-Gurren. After that....
The last 25 minutes is completely new footage filled with the raging furosity of awesomeness that we love so much. We witness the epic final battle worthy of the title Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann The Fuckin' Movie. Brace for epic in every sense of the phrase.
Spoiler :
Team Dai-Gurren takes on ALL THREE of the remaining generals at the same time, plus Viral, who has been given authority over all of Timilph's forces.

With all of the changes they've made, I anticipate great things with the next movie. It comes to theaters in Japan tomorrow, so I assume we'll be getting it in about eight months. :P
