In the 1997 horror film Event Horizon, a transmission reaches Earth from a lost starship with an experimental jump drive.

The message is "Liberate me."

The twist, once the investigative/recovery team arrives at the ship, is that the message was not "Liberate me."

It was "Liberate tutemet ex inferis," or "Save yourselves from hell."

One of the themes of Gurren Lagann is "Libera me from hell," (or "Save/deliver me from hell") so named for its use of the lyrics from the responsary "Libera me." The song itself makes no direct reference to hell.

"Save yourselves from hell."
"Save me from hell."

Close to a decade for me to notice the reference.

Goddamn.

Can anyone remember what scenes 'Libera me from hell' played over? I'm curious if there's more to be picked from this.

I'm pretty tired, I'll give you that, but at the moment I'm convinced that this checks out.

The only reason I'm willing to consider this is that they also referenced an obscure comic book with Viral's song.

Hey, I never knew. That's pretty cool, OP. Never watched Event Horizon but Libera Me plays in the scene where Kittan sacrifices himself, though I doubt there's any connection in the way it's used.

TTGL turns 10 years old soon.

Fictional stories use random latin because it looks cool. Fictional stories have people who save other people because it looks cool. Therefore, a fictional story with random latin and people who save people will have the word LIBER or LIBERA somewhere in it. It doesn't have much to do with a 1997 space horror film.

Hell could easily just be a reference to the general repeating theme of oppression in TTGL. Anti-spirals oppression, Lord Genome/Gunman beasts oppressing humans into underground pits, Rossiou's "oppression" over others as the ruler, Rossiou's underground civilization being oppressed by that priest guy
