Watched it. I dunno, seemed like the Yoko angle was completely outdone by the 5 minutes of Simon x Viral win. I like Yoko, but her story just couldn't compete.


Pretty much this. Still missed her in action though. Boota missed her as well. Couldn't resist snuggling between those pillows, could he? xD

Simon AND Viral? Could we possibly handle all the awesomeness that would be unleashed over these last few episodes?

EPIC!!!!
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]> 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?!
hell yesssssss.

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.

Let's destroy the moon together!

from the moment when yoko shot simon's handcuffs till the end was full of pure awesomeness

finally enough yoko screentime and viral is a really likable char, really glad that we have an awesome simon x viral fighting pairing :D

and let's not forget our boota who let (i bet) everyone stare at the screen for at least some seconds xD

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 HIGHER AND HIGHER AND HIGHER!

Amazing episode. We're reaching the end.

So we get to see what Yoko was doing recently. My favourite part of that segment was while she was fighting the Gunmen and explaining what would be on the test. That was funny.

After that there's the long-awaited Simon and Viral team up. Their combined "Who the hell do you think I am?" was great.

5/5

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.

The first half of the episode was cute with Yoko and the kids.

Also fuck yeah for Viral/Simon teamwork I was hoping that Viral would join up with him! It took seven years to happen though.

What a coincidence that kid name is Nakim if you add an "a" and mix up the letters it becomes Kamina. Kamina is everywhere.

Cracking episode. Simon + Viral = Gurren Lagann = win

Feels as though they were severely trying to make up for Yoko fanservice which was absent in previous episodes. No complaints, eh?!

Despite everything, I find myself missing loli Nia. Still though! Viral has proven himself to be far more capable than a mundane recurring minor villain in the span of one sentence. That is greatness.

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 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.

One of my favorite episodes for sure.

Seeing what Yoko's been doing was refreshing, but felt a bit out of place.

I can't say I'm opposed to Simon teaming up with Viral.

Gurren Lagann vs. the Moon. I detect an epic episode incoming. xD

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.

I was skeptical at first but I really liked how Yoko became a school teacher. That showed a side of her character that I didn't think was there.

Very good episode. I wonder what's going to happen with Simon and Nia. Is he going to get Yoko in the end? I wouldn't mind that. Honestly I really wanted them to get closer ever since she kissed Kamina. I wished the story had explored that love "triangle" a bit more before Kamina died but overall this anime went in a cool direction I guess. I'm glad I gave it chance.
