The Daily Drill: Gurren Lagann Episode 01

Gurrennnnnn Lagann!


 
Yes, it seems our mystery was too complex for many of you, and that the news of Gurren Lagann screening on Vice is a total surprise.
 
if you haven't seen Gurren Lagann, then prepare yourselves for something amazing. So ruggedly manly and awesome that your muscles will grow muscles that grow muscles, all from just watching the show.
 
If you have seen the show before, I have two words for you... com' on! Don't act like you'd mind watching it again. Like you wouldn't enjoy sharing in the experiences of watching so and so do something something.
 
I thought so... So without further ado GURREN LAGANN.

You think I'll be happy with just this? Who the hell do you think I am!?
 
Also, this episode has a tasty morsel hiding in tasty morsels within a tasty morsel of an episode. Weird, right?

Same here. Hulu doesn't work. 
I've already seen the show though and it's good. Really good.

@gia: Maybe you guys should show something that's on Crunchy Roll and not Hulu.
JackSukeruon Nov. 14, 2009 at 11:16 a.m.
I was planning on watching this show sooner or later. Later works fine by me so I don't mind that it doesn't work. 
 
Still pretty funny though.
giaon Nov. 14, 2009 at 1:54 p.m.
@JJOR64: We are showing TWO somethings that are on Crunchyroll and not Hulu. We really wanted to show Gurren Lagann. I'm sorry for those who can't access it, but we don't have control over it, unfortunately.

Watching!!!!!!!!! 
 
The Drill is a metaphor?
giaon Nov. 14, 2009 at 2:14 p.m.
@ethan: Oh, yes.
 
Someone asked Gainax about the drills at Fanime a couple years back, and they just kind of looked at each other awkwardly and said, "boys...like their drills."
 
Comedy gold.
ethan staff on Nov. 14, 2009 at 2:23 p.m.
Ok that was pretty damn bad ass. I've never watched Gurenn Langann before.  Thanks for the intro. 
 
The Langann robot-head-thingy reminds me of Modok from comic books....

Hulu eh? Well good thing I'm watching it at the anime/manga/videogame/mahjong club at my university instead. (2 episodes every two weeks well until exams that is episode 11 and 12 next two weeks) I hope the people down south enjoy it though.
giaon Nov. 14, 2009 at 3:24 p.m.
@Konanda: We'll overlap briefly, then :)

AjayRazon Nov. 14, 2009 at 4:33 p.m.
i'll try to find it on another site, and i'll watch everyday like you guys ^^ 
Sombreon Nov. 14, 2009 at 4:46 p.m.
Believe in the you, that believes in yourself.
John_Martoneon Nov. 14, 2009 at 5:19 p.m.
@ethan: You HAVE to keep up with this. I am very interested in seeing how it affects your brain.
Daniel_Newton moderator on Nov. 14, 2009 at 6:36 p.m.
Ah Gurren Lagann, definitely on my to-watch list. Can't access hulu here from the UK, there are ways around that though...
I have other anime series to go through first though, but I'll get to this eventually!
