Team Gurren-Lagann’s accumulating quite a roster of amazing friends. They’re rolling so deep right now, it’s almost like this an RPG! Ha! I think it’s a great sick joke how all these survivors are finding hope and inspiration in this gang of knuckleheads. I suppose when you’re at the end of the world, beggars can’t be choosers when it comes to who their heroes are. Credit ought to be given to Simon for actually using his brains this time ‘round. That moment where he reveals his drill-based trap to the giant Gunman was quite crafty.
We get the revelation of the Gunman factory not only being mobile, but also being a giant Gunman in itself. Even though everybody acts shocked… let’s be honest, they really should’ve figured that a couple episodes back. Then again, this show's stressed from the beginning that these characters don’t exactly possess the same kind of cunning, deductive minds as like, say, L. They’re brawny hard bodies who like to party… they’re like… they’re like the JERSEY SHORE crew of the mecha world!
Ewwww… I feel kind of dirty for actually putting that thought into your minds. Let’s just pretend I’m pulling an INCEPTION now and extracting that idea. There. You’ll never have to think of that again.
You know, it’s pretty clear that Yoko’s supposed to end up with one of these guys eventually. That’s how all these kind of rousing adventures play out anyway, right? But I can’t guess which one it’s going to be, yet. Will she tame wild man’s man Kamina and get him to grow up? Or will she get timid soul Simon to come out of his shell (and also get him to grow up?) The lines for this inevitable love triangle aren't readily apparent as they were for ESCAFLOWNE!
