Loved the time skip, thought Simon was perfect, just kinda laying around looking about all the time, and so was Nia.

OH, and the massive Kamina statue.
Hope Yoko is back soon.

Wow Rossiu, what a bitch. He's trying to get people to refer to Simon by his full title and everything, but he so doesn't see him as incharge. If the other guys all decide to revolt, I hope it is rightfully against him rather than Simon. Although Simon could shuush him up a bit, but I guess that's not his nature.
Potential in Viral though, definately.

"Will you marry me?"

"Nope!"

That cracked me up :D

So Nia is... what? It sounds like an interesting second act thought.

holy frickin frick, older simon is extremely sexy


My first thought.

I was hoping to get more into this future world but they've already introduced an evil enemy (nIA!?).
Something tells me things are about to ger serious.

I miss Kamina T_T

Holy Shit.
The Rossiu bashing here is kind of...pathetic.

Just because the way he went about it didn't mesh, doesn't mean he is any less of a strong character. Fuck. If anything he is protecting humanity and trying to save it even more then any of the other main characters combined.
Just because a character doesn't take physical action doesn't make them any less stronger.

But anyways.
That was one of the more well done time skips I have seen done. Certainly not the best though. But far above what most time skips turn into.
They gave just enough "This is what happened afterwards, blah blah blah" then picked the plot right back up.


EDIT:
Actually...thinking about it.
Did Simone get stupider or something?
He sure as hell didn't grow up at all.

Shouldn't he have through twice about engaging an enemy in a residential area? We know he has had to protect people before. This wasn't a new concept for him. And because of his actions loads of people are dead.

Well for one thing everybody looks double the bad ass, especially Simon of course.
And Rossiu is pissing me off. This new arc seems like its going to be amazing.

Now that's how all timeskips should be done in the future. Take notes other shows!

Happy that they didn't turn Simon into some super sexy bishie, but an ultra cool leader with the right amount of swag. And I can understand Rossiu being Simon's foil and all, but he has no reason to be so self-entitled because realistically, what has he done to earn his keep?

holy shit! simon love!!!!!!! totally knew that nia thing was gonna happen but again, the proposal was so funny. i like how she was wearing the ring anyway before she actually accepted. i dont like the whole government concept though, being rebels is way more fun. AND IT DEFIES THE LAW OF PHYSICS FOR A CITY OF THAT CALIBER AND TECHNOLOGY TO BE CREATED IN A MERE 7 YEARS!! just saying, but thats why i love anime. also, they could've never advanced so far in such little time especially considering how everything they got up until this point was stolen.

viral is really awesome, he reminds me of accelerator. not just his face but how hes like an evil badass and kind of sad at the same time. more yoko please! and kamina statue ftw

I completely agree. But being strong willed, doesn't mean you have to lose your ability to rationally speak/communicate with someone, let alone be kind.. I mean he didn't even inform Simoun about the people who wanted to stay underground. In my opinion, he acted like a total douche in that scene.

Appearently for some reason the Han-Rasen don't want more than 1 million above ground?


Yeah I thought the Spiral King said it was the population of the humans on the surface which was why when Rossiu was needing a count of humans from underground I was like: ???

I really like how they've changed. Simon and Nia being together, I was expecting that. They foreshadowed it in the earlier episodes. I really dislike what they've done with Rossiu. They made him very likeable when he was younger. But now he seems like he is going to the other side. Overall, I really liked it though

Rossiu needs to die in a fire. Other than him this was a really awesome episode. Love how they time skip, make Simon older, and had this awesome city built! So this is what the Spiral King meant about the level of humans becoming too much and how they now face elimination by some powerful force. A very well developed plot, I can't wait to see more. :D

Nia's turn down was so damn funny, she really cracked me up in that scene. XD

Ooh, I just love time skips! No matter where - anime, movie, book etc., it fuels up the story and gives many new chances for development. This episode was good and I liked how the characters had changed (except Roddiu, for obvious reasons). I get the feeling though, that I've spoiled it too much for myself already...

TIME SKIP!!!! definitely love it. So let's see.... Simon looks cool and handsome, Nia more beautiful, the two kids [sorry, forgot their names] kicking some ass, kittan still the same, Leeron, I think is also still the same....hmm.. but what I hate was Rossiu turning into some jerk. I wondered what happened to him. Grrr.. Looking forward to the next episode.. So pumped up now... New arc is really interesting :)

I liked the change they made for Rossiu. It’s clear that he has become a jerk, but he is also the only person in the government that actually is worth anything. Sure he has questionable ethics, but that is because he is picking up all the slack from all the other people on the council.

I really liked the whole barren wasteland style of the series, so i was a bit thrown when we were introduced to a huge city with a government. Happy that it's destroyed. >:]
But yeah, like everyone's said, Rossiu's a cunt. I would have hoped that Simon would've stood his ground a bit more and put Ross in his place.
Looking forward to team Digurren reforming. We need some more badassery.

Well it looks like Rossiu is the only one in this show with his head still screwed on straight. He was one of my favorite characters from before the time jump, and he is definitely my favorite character now. I don't quite understand why people are upset with him. He's a little "direct", yes, but he is the only one that has an active plan for the future survival of the human race!

7 years time skip, huh..

Now there's too much for me to digest.

Well firstly of course, changes in the character. I like how much the characters have grown, especially Simon, lol he's no longer a kid. Nia has become more attractive O.O, back to her long hair but somehow i think it looks like a piece of.... cloud (for the lack of a better word). Rossiu has become an annoying character...... and in this ep i've grown to be fond of Viral by a bit.

I can't wait to see Yoko.

Secondly, modern world. Wow, just wow. I wasn't expecting that.

Looks like things are gonna get exciting!

Great episode. Was nice to see that the Simon x Nia relationsip grew, the kids plioting the Gunmen and the chief of Jiha and Viral again. The adding of "ROW ROW FIGHT DA POWAH!" to the eyecatches was a nice touch.

Also, I didn't expect that when they reached 1,000,000 million people the threat would appear right there and then.

Hopefully Rossiu will come to his senses.

and so begins the literal greatest arc ever created in anime.
the mugann turned out great on the blurays. the fact that theyre pretty much the only 3D anything in an entirely handdrawn series gives them a sort of...faceless look? quite a good play on visual dissonance

love how gurren lagann is still top dog though
also, like the new OP, still like the first better though, but i love the new ED, easily the best of the 2

I really hope Rossiu actually brings something interesting to the table, because I can sense some interesting character dynamics coming. :D Good episode, it handed the time skip well.

This time skip completely took me by surprise, was wondering what they planned to do with the Spiral King defeated. Looking very promising so far, grown up Simon look cool and so many things have changed. It was a bit sad to see Viral finally get defeated and have to abandon his gunmen. I have a feeling Rossiu has ulterior motives at this point, I wonder if him and Simon will have a falling out. Also liked seeing the pipsqueaks grown up a bit and piloting suits.

Excited to see what's to come from the moon.
