There you have it. team lo-fi traveled to downtown San Francisco
for the double feature of Gurren Lagann: Childhood's End
and Gurren Lagann: The Lights in the Sky are Stars
. Now, unlike Gia I hadn't seen the first one yet, so I thought quick bits before and after the movie were necessary. While there we met Dan. Dan is your new leader.
Long trip is long
While he deserves to have statues built to how awesomely otaku he is, Dan is in fact the man, and you need to know it. Dan traveled all the way from western Massachusetts to San Francisco just to see this movie
. I don't use the word "just" lightly. He skipped classes, packed a bag, and flew almost 3,000 miles (6k both ways) just to see this movie, by himself. But he wasn't by himself, he had us.
That dude is amazing. For whatever reason I immediately became his fanboy and had to make sure everybody knew that his fandom for the series far, far, far outstretched theirs. OMG though, the movies... if someone doesn't start distributing the movie in the US I am totally gonna start spoiling things.
