Team Gurren is back! Hell yeah! And Simon is so mature and reliable..Yuko ftw! And Viral? haha. I always have a feeling before that he will end up helping the team in the end.. Oh man, I bet Kamina is so proud of Team Gurren.

[01:53] <windy[gl21|sleep]> OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD
[01:53] <windy[gl21|sleep]> VIRAL AND SIMON JOINT "WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK I AM!??!" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
this ep kicked major fricking ass.
the execution of it was...pefect. from the time when yoko blasted off simon's handcuffs to when boota burrowed in yoko's boobs i was just gaping at the screen in awe.
i cannot express my love for this show in words~
and yomako (?) sensei is someone to really be admired. yoko made a lot of little fans in that short time on the island :)
next ep is going to be even more epic than this, possibly.
VIRAL AND SIMON SHARING THE GURREN LAGANN?!
Great YOKO Episode :D Really lovely to see her as teacher :p was quite a nice attribution to the main story! The part where we catches up from the last time was also quite nice with Viral teaming up with Simon.
So I think I've finally understood why the last few episodes upset me so much and what the show is ultimately trying to tell me. I was upset because I have sat where both Rossiu and Simon are seated. With trying to do the best you can leading a group of people and once you give them your all, they turn on you. Even if its the smallest of mistakes, they resent your leadership position for the pettiest of reasons.
Secondly, the show is telling the audience that you need more that a big heart and courage to lead successfully and accomplish your dreams, but you need to be intelligent as well. However cold intellect, foregoing the human component, is a recipe for utter disaster.
I can't wait to see how the final episodes turn out, but they would really have to screw the pooch for me to feel anything but elated about this show.
Let this be our little secret, no needs to know we're feeling HIGHERAND HIGHERAND HIGHER!
seeing yokos backstory was great, her destroying the 2 rogue gunmen was badass.
the reunion of team dai gurren was fucking amazing, just like old times. gurren lagann+ team dai gurren to save the day was bloody ridiculous.
and that stillframe.
yoko is bloody awesome
love the scale of the gunmen
this scene was fucking amazing.
this is the part where dragonball z starts to look like telletubbies in comparison
OH MY GOD OH MY GOD THIS EPISODE WAS FILLED WITH SO MUCH AMAZING
YOKO AS A TEACHER WAS SO ADORABLE AND SWEET
AND TEAM GURREN LAGANN BACK TOGETHER WITH THAT SWEET BEAST + HUMAN COMBO
I'M CRYING FROM ALL THE AAMAZING
Now that I've got your attention, you should check out my blog! I post anime & video game reviews, fashion, and more. http://megnyan.blogspot.com/
My fucking god, the chills from this episode were intense. If this keeps it up, Gurren Lagann's definitely going in my favorites.
I was wondering if that was Yoko in the preview last time... man seeing her as a teacher is awkward as hell, but still great. I didn't notice before, but she has Kamina's jacket which makes her all the more badass. xD
Never expected Viral to actually pilot the Gurren, I figured they'd team up but damn... too freakin' epic!
yoko ftw. also viral teaming up with simon was pretty sick
"Urushibara Ruka. The mannerisms and voice of a woman... No... More feminine than any woman. But he's a guy. Taller than Mayuri, but so very thin... But he's a guy. Looks great in a miko outfit... But he's a guy. It's already twilight And yet, it's so hot. The cicadas are crying. But... He's a guy."
Liked seeing what yoko was up to all this time and hey we get our fanservice. Im really really getting sick of hearing "who the hell do you think I am" just stop please. Its not cool and cute anymore its just stupid. Seems like everything is gearing up for a big ol throw down next epiosde cant wait.
Yoko is definitely set as my favorite character now, with Kamina cozy in #2. I enjoyed seeing what she was up to and I'm glad to see she's still enough of a BAMF to take down two gunmen without even needing one.
The Team Gurren reunion and everything after was just pure amazing. Yeah, screw you Rossiu and your stupid tactics. Team Gurren will show you how it's done without you. Though I think it's a good time for sleep now because I feel I'm gonna wanna watch the next 6 episodes all in one sitting.
That whole flashback was awesome. It was nice to see what Yoko was doing. oko looks great! This whole episode was epic! Simon and Viral team up! Shit! Looks like the next episode is going to be epic as fuck!
Yeah as per usual who's coming to save the fudging day, it's Simon. When Rossiu's shitty ass plan doesn't work, Simon comes to save his ass. Unbelievable. Simon is so awesome and frikin' Rossiu locks him away. The only friggin' guy who has a chance at saving the world he locks away in prision while he runs away like a little scaredy cat. I don't think I'll ever like him and if he doesn't die by the end of this series I'll be seriously disappointed.
