I found this episode significantly worse than the others it was nice to see other villages at first but the episode as a whole made me realize that my rating of this anime may very well rest on Yoko's shoulders. Though maybe this episode was just an anomaly and the rest will be just as enjoyable even if Yoko isn't present as much.

Yoko ftw.

I didn't like the High Priest until he explained with they were doing the 50 guys thing.

Seems like its +3 to the Gurren Team!

I know this is way way way old, but I'm just catching up and I thought I'd mention: Yoko = white mage.

You said it was way old when you posted a few months later. xD I'm replying 5 years later. Wow. Anyway, I know right? She does look like a white mage!! :D

this episode was way too frustrating for me. i dont mind the slow pace story but the high priest annoyedme so much. oh, and the greyscale color was also a little frustrating.

This. Fortunately it has returned to its original art style. I would have dropped this episode if it was like 4th's style >_>

Not much to say about the episode itself, it seemed pretty much like every other anime that tackles strange religion, but I do appreciate the attention drawn to Yoko's sexy ass body. She's a work of art, that girl :3

I laughed when the weirdo called her out on her... ehem... risque outfit (or lack of one) :P

But hey, now we know why she dresses like she does - Freedom of movement! I don't know if i buy that but whatever - It's anime xD

Wow pretty depressing that they can't have more than 50 people in that village.

A nice change of pace from all of the fast paced action, a thought provoking episode with some interesting ideas to consider, most notably the idea of choosing the greater good or lesser evil.

I can never get tired from the awesome combining sequence. Animation is back to normal which is nice.

thank god that kid got out of that whack village
"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."

pretty depressing episode and that priest is a jerk. I know he has to do it but he just so cold about it and I like how he gave zero reason for basically killing this kids mom. I was surprised how yoko didint notice how indecent her outfit was. I mean lady your boobs are flapping everywhere.

Despite not furthering the main plot (unless the son and girls become important), this was my favorite episode yet. The drama was better than I expected, thanks to the lack of silliness all of the previous episodes had. If it stays like this, I'll be pleasantly surprised.

@soul: It probably wasn't indecent where Yoko grew up. She seems pretty innocent to me. (Well, Kamina might be rubbing off on her a bit. Did you notice how long it took her to realize Kamina was being indecent in his thoughts of her body?) I feel bad for her, tbh.

Good side episode, I love how they made everything grainy under ground. Hoping to see Rossiu become a great team member!

This episode was ok. The 3 people joining their crew might be ok, but so far they seem like they are going to be annoying.

That was a bit of a darker episode, still a good episode though. The first couple times that Kamina called the kid "forehead" I cracked up. Interesting art direction with this episode too, the grey worked well.

Wow a Gurreen Lagann epiosde with a bit depth to it? The whole story with the "village" and their chief was very interesting, however felt Kamina like a retarded asshole (even more than usual).
The black-white scenes and then going back to normal colors was a very nice idea to include.

Yoko was cute in that robe. Hell, she's probably cute in anything she wears. Nice episode.

okay so how is Kamina a pervert for looking at what yoko wears everyday?! She doesn't seem to care about her appearance any other time, but now it's a big deal?... stupid.

And separately I just have to say I cannot stand Kamina. He is beyond irritating. I almost hate this guy.

I liked this episode because of the village's laws. Reminds me of certain stories.

Looks like the animation became way better than the last time I watched this~ I liked the village because it was easy on the eyes. I want Yoko to sit on my head...

Oh, Yoko~ Of course you don't realize that your outfit's lewd. They should be praising her boobs rather than that Face God. Why did they cover her body?! The humanity.

Kamina being a brash knucklehead as usual. Forehead boy lol. I hope he becomes more likable soon... That Gurren Lagann combination drill making me nervous as usual @_@

Turns out that the religion bit was actually a ruse to make the tragic 50-person limit possible. I chuckled at the twist that the priest can't read either. That smugface god spirit mimic fight scene was actually very awesome tho.

Rossiu, Gimmy and Darry has now joined the party! May their passions shine like the light on Rossiu's forehead~

Odd to have a limit but I guess the priest is right, any more and the village will suffer for it.
Also sad at the same time though. - Seen enough films and shows regarding this people management.

Cool episode though.

It was immediately recognizable that Jouji Nakata voiced Magin, but really did he also voiced Rossiu like the cast page stated?! If so freaking impressive!
