The Catch-Up: Plot
In episode 14 our hard-hitting heroes were forced to do battle with Guame
's combined forces, whose butts they kicked (of course), in no small part due to now being able to fly. Unfortunately, these two are mere generals. Next they have to do battle with the big boss: Genome, the Spiral King
, introducing herself as the Gurren-dan's chef (*shudder*), demands to see her father to see if she can talk some sense into him.
Ahhh, Genome. Or as John so (ahem) "cleverly" calls him, Lord GAR-nome. (That makes me think of the Gnome King from the Wizard of Oz books, but all buffed up-- it's a very weird mental image, trust me.) And you thought the battles couldn't get anymore awesome than the last one. Spoiler alert: this show will continue to out-do itself. REMINDER:
We'll be taking some time off from the episodes after this one, but keep coming back for more Gurren Lagann-themed content!
