Or maybe they could do an alternative retelling of the story. Like do a twist on what actually happened in the story and maybe changed the outcomes of the important events.

So nothing new... Just chop up 27 episodes worth of story and reduce it to 2 hours? I'm not exactly thrilled by this proposal. However every arc of the series did repeat the same formula over and over so I guess it might not be too bad.


Maybe they will not retell everything, just the first ark!
They dont have to do the space one!

Instead of retelling the story, they should tell a new story. Maybe focus on Darry and Gimmy now that they are adults. Or reunite the entire gang to fight off another big evil or something. AND AND AND YOKO+SIMON! YA!

Meh. I want something different, not a rehash. Guess I'll still watch it though.




Hit me if I say 'meh' again.

Well I just started Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann and so far I like it. I'll be waiting to catch this movie although I won't be jumping through hoops to get it.

What the hell?!
I was just thinking about how cool it would be if there was a Gurren Lagann movie and it comes true? What else should I think up...
