Gurren Lagann: Yoko Box - Pieces of Sweet Stars is finished. In truth, this is not an actual special of the main anime, but really a music video for the eponymous character here. That said, I found it provides a very interesting look at the character, showcasing all of the potential lives she is able to live. It's interesting to find that in such a short span of four minutes, viewers can connect so deeply with all of the various realities that she may have been placed in and all of them feel natural. The video also has a great introduction and ending, surprisingly, with
all of this being implied to be pondering by (our canon) Yoko as she journeys up a hill, pausing. Indeed, it fits well with the title, as each one represents a brilliant shine given by Yoko living her best life in all of these and even being given a star by one of her parallel selves. However, it should be stated that this music video is filled with ecchi moments including showing of breasts and implied nudity, as well as several revealing and provocative outfits. While these deserve a mention, they are generally harmless as they're not the main focus here and the video is only four minutes long approximately. While not necessary to watch by any means, this is a great look into Yoko's character, which is at least worth listening to for its catchy song. 7/10.
