I picked up the final set the other day. Finally, Gurren Lagann is in my DVD library.

-the only English language novel actually being developed in parallel to its Japanese version involving a pan-human Soviet in a galactic struggle to survive and to export the communist utopia/revolution to all the down trodden alien class and race- one of the premise being that Khrushchev remains and has abandoned Lysenko stupidity

I still love the final battle and the series so much fun to watch. I'm going to watch it on my second viewing during the summer.

For the Gurren Lagann fans among us:

The voice actress for Yoko just released a single and Gainax was nice enough to do a music video for her. A better quality version must be online somewhere but for now, enjoy thanks to the magical magic of Youtube.

And take note just how much those Gainax guys get out of Yoko and her great big honking....personality.

I was too distracted by the Urusei Yatsura and Kimagure Orange Road elements to even notice that Yoko was in it.

Once you watch one or two episodes then your hook to it ;). I think they have a complete boxset of the DVD's IIRC.

With that music video, I alternated rapidly between "Wut..." and "Yeah!"

EDIT: For grins, I made some GIFs out of this music video.... You can find them here: http://sites.google.com/site/puppetchaos/sketches-njunk

Viral headbanging is the most awesome thing in the entire damn video.

i got them in the mail yesterday and i was hooked. stayed up til 5 AM and watched up to episode 14. i was however surprised to learn it was Japanese audio. not that i mind as i refuse to watch Eva in anything but Japanese. i'm greatly looking forward to finishing it tonight.

Damn, that was Epic. Lazengan was incredibly badass whenever it appeared, but I had a lolwut moment when Lordgenome appeared at the end of that drill. Seeing Gurren and Lagann combine with the seizurific rainbows is gonna be really nostalgic when i'm old and grey.Any news on a camrip for ragan-hen yet? I'm not going to spoiler myself what this "super TTGL" is....

But yeah, did anyone else start going outside more after watching it?

OH DEAR GOD, I NEED HELP HERE!

OMF is refusing to watch the second half of the show, and I've tried explaining to him what he's missing but he wont listen. Someone needs to force him to watch the rest of the series, tie him down or something. Its for his own good.

http://blog.livedoor.jp/ioryhamon/archives/6166762.html -- the GAINAX remnant organization is making some kind of announcement as part of a Gurren Lagann rebroadcast.

Are they going to try and milk this now that Anno's run off with the NGE moneys?
