Nia got ugly with this haircut. Also, the whole Eureka copy thing is starting to tick me off.

I hope Simon gets with Yoko not Nia. D:<

Oh STFU stupid hater =_=

I don't see how anything is a copy of Eureka, but granted i'm only 12 eps into that series. Anyways, Simon x Nia is love, he'll never get with Yoko :3

wow. with each episode nia just becomes so much more awesome. i love her new haircut. it defenitely fits her personality.I love how she has unconditional trust for everyone. It reminds me of kamina and his "believe in me who believes in you" bit.

Yoko got on my nerves though. She could be such an awesome tough-girl character and they've really just ruined that.

I really agree....tho I loved Nia's long hair too. Both styles really fit her x3 But Yoko seemed to have gotten better by the end of the episode...I hope so anyways...XD

I loved the sex puns in this episode! It had hilarious and heart warming moments.

Yoko shines in this episode with a bang.

I can't get enough of the over-the-top-ness of this anime!

I love how they used the loss of the hair to further development.
No loss no gain.

Even something as simple as cutting your hair can be a massive change to come.

Another general goes down! The underwater action was pretty nice too lol, although I still prefer land combat.
Nia's hair cut looks pretty nice, kinda reminded me of Eureka 7 in a way. Some good development between her and Yoko too. ^^
Loved the fan service too, that was so frekin awesome!

Yoko with Simon? No way
Big boobs aint compatible with small kid. Yoko and Kamina would be the only good couple. I still kinda hate the writer for killing Kamina. Bastard

That's twice now that the ninja grandpa saves Nia's life. xD

Nia with short hair... ehh it might take some time getting used to.

And Leeron gets more creepier by the episode. o_0

Another awesome episode. I hope it will get better and better. Btw, i just have to praise the old ninja man.. he just appear out of nowhere but he is really dependable. And I also like the dude who just fire without any second thought. He is so hilarious... And that scene where Yuko was shooting Nia was epic.. Nia is so calm too.. I like her more now. But poor viral. He is starting to look pathetic to me.

It may not be the best change but I still like her new haircut.

Also, the few Eureka Seven mentions in this discussion have made me notice something. I just finished watching E7 before watching TTGL and I like how I don't even feel like I finished E7 because there are so many of the same voices in this show. So far I noticed the voices of Eureka, Renton, Hilda, and Stoner, I wonder if there are more I haven't recognized.

Why didn't Kamina make it till the swimsuit episode?
That would have been enough fanservice for me for ATLEAST a week.

IKR. (I am actually quoting a comment from 5 years ago)
Like what some others have said, I, too, feel that this series has gone somewhat downhill without Kamina. Maybe it's too early to judge. Ah well.

Anyway, i find it rather unfair how Viral is still alive. I can't wait for him to be dead :/
Nia looks cute in short hair.

Come on guys too soon to be judging a book by its cover, idk I'm liking this anime so far, why didn't I see this back in the day? X/
Don't bother if you don't know how special effects were done without computers.

Drilling through water like a boss!

Great to see Yoko and Nia are starting to become friends. I like Nia's new haircut, but I liked her old hairstyle better.

I'm so close to dropping this.
Kamina and Adiane were my favourite characters and now they're both dead.
There isn't really a lot that keeps me going, I'm just hoping Yoko dies too because I hate her so much.
Overall nice episode.

Nice episode as usual. Underwater fighting was awesome, and actually a little suspenseful. Plus, another of the four generals goes down. I'm really enjoying the breakneck pace: very atypical of a mecha show.

Obligatory beach fanservice episode with a half decent twist.

Suspense isn't massively prominent in this show with all the fighting, but I enjoyed the tension as Nia was held "hostage" and Yoko was aiming her gun..

Nia's swimming suit > Yoko's swimming suit xD
Yoko is completely lost in competition with Nia

Lol "Major damage to no.3 bridge" *ting
They really felt that damage at their crotch xD

Nia with short hair... Wow her princess image is crumbling
Well, princess = long hair

i like how dai-gurren's water mode was just to put on flippers and paddle
"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."

love how protective the brother got over his sisters.Though with a ship mainly of dudes the reaction is not a shock.Yoko outfit is no shock since well she is already in a bikini so they did the opposite and gave her more cloths. For once I agree with yoko sometimes leaving a bit to the imagination is more hot.

Yoko being jelous of nia was pretty funny.This show sure love its penis and ass stuff hu.I was happy to see old man do something els random.Dam they blew adiane up big time. I thought they would keep her around some more. Nia just becomes more and more likeable.

i guess i'm in the minority here when i say this but i'm actually liking nia's shorter hair...*shrugs*...i'm liking yoko and nia more and more now...yoko sniping past nia with pin point accuracy and nia not even flinching and believing in yoko's ability was double win...

Yup, these are my feelings about this episode too.

Rossiu is cool and all, but I'm still not sure how I feel about him piloting Gurren.

It wasn't particularly good or bad. For a beach episode it did okay. The part near the end with Yoko shooting through Nia's hair was pretty sweet. As an aside, I usually like long hair more, but the shorter haircut suits Nia well too.

The action was decent. Hopefully Yoko will get some more moments to shine in the future. I still like Nia's character.

'Not much else to say.

No!!!! Nia was starting to become my favorite character ;((((( ugh one if my biggest pet peeves in anime is when they cut a girls long hair. I'm obsessed with long hair :( she looked a million times better before. Now I'm sad.

is it me or do more giant drills just seem to come out of nowhere on Gurren Lagann whenever its convenient? I thought the action was lacking, what it was lacking I'm not entirely sure, but I didn't feel the underwater fight wasn't that great. Yoko getting jealous of Nia was comical enough though Yoko couldn't stay upset with Nia being such a sweetheart. The hostage situation was cool. boy they are just plowing through the beastmen forces with half of the generals dead. I actually didn't mind the haircut, i always thought the coloring of her hair was the thing that looked best about it and it still has that going on.

I'm almost certainly the 1000th person that has said this, but this is looking basically like Eureka 7.

Alien girl that the young hero likes, big sister like figure, traveling crew, mecha with myserious superpower, etc.

As the episodes continue, will it differentiate a little?

I like the pacing of these arcs so far, they keep things interesting. Nice relationship building between Yoko and Nia. Awesome fight, as usual. And now the obligatory swimsuit episode is out of the way, woopdedoo.

2 generals down, 2 to go. Almost at the halfway point. I liked Nia's long hair but she looks great with short hair. I feel like Viral is gonna be the final boss instead of the Spiral King. Great episode as usual.
