I was actually about to make a thread about TTGL. I'll just ask here.

I love TTGL but I've never seen the movies. The first one starts so slowly and is basically just a clip show for a long time. Should I just skip it and watch movie 2? I've tried to sit through movie 1 like 4 times and only make it halfway.

>Are you celebrating
Maybe I will with the movies

It's neat don't get me wrong, if it was dubbed I'd have watched it 10 times by now. It's just that since I've watched both the sub and dub of the anime twice each, it's really boring needing to give my full attention to a recap of a story I've already heard a few times. I'm a slow reader you see.

Reminder that Yoko is directly responsible for Kamina's death. Had she not disturbed Simon while he was trying to sleep, he likely would have fallen asleep instead of witnessing her kiss Kamina. Alternatively she could have simply not kissed Kamina.

His blood is on her lips.

Have you watched Kill la Kill? Imaishi directed that as well and it's even more over-the-top than Gurren Lagann. It's not as emotional and the plot isn't as good, but the action scenes in Kill la Kill are truly a spectacle.

I just finished watching the anime for the third time, after three or four years or so.

Episode 26 still gets me, though not as hard as the first time, where I cried like a bitch, while I only teared profusely today.

Maybe it's because I already knew what was going to happen, but still, I enjoyed every moment of it. Barring ep4.

Gonna rewatch Lagann-hen tomorrow or sunday, all these emotions left me pretty tired.

Also, did the bluray release added something? I didn't remember that splash in the first arc showing Lord Genome's past version, or the Anti-Spiral's body having those changing images instead of it being entirely black.

>>154163379
>these implications about Kittan

He was his own thing, even if at times he did wanted to be like Kamina, though at the end he ended up admitting that he could never be like him.

It was exactly like Yoko said: while Kamina was hot blooded to the max and dragging everyone with him, Kittan was like that guy that WANTS to be hotblooded, and picks up on the ones who get overwhelmed by the leader's will.

While I did get sad, I didn't actually cried at Kamina's death. I don't know, the tone from him fighting until the very end, the lack of a proper song to accompany it unlike with Kittan's and everyone forsaking their AU selves, and the chapter ending up rather suddenly after all the action; all that left me in a state of shock rather than crying.

I did cry to Kittan's sacrifice; and to this day, everyone leaving their normal AU lives in favor of fighting the Anti-Spiral, while Libera Me is playing in the back, is the only time in all of my fiction consuming-life I actually cried like a bitch.

I was exactly the same as you guys, thinking nothing would ever relive that itch again. And then I played(as in, yes, on my PS3, and bought all the DLC even) Asura's Wrath.

If you absolutely love TTGL, you're doing yourself a huge disservice by not at least watching over youtube a complete playthrough of it. You being the one who pushes the buttons at key moments has a much better feeling, but I'm still damn sure you can enjoy it all the same.

Also, the dub for the game is fucking great, Liam O' Brien is a fucking God-tier VA.

they really should've pronounced it "sai-man" in the original Japanese, they totally have all the sounds and syllables needed

>>
>>154174549
>pronouncing it Simon instead of sea-moan sounds wrong to you
but they don't pronounce it as Simon, that's my problem; the dub uses an accent over the "o." Shimon was fine in the JP version since that's the common translation, but there's no excuse for adding an accented "o" in an American English dub.

Give me one reason the dub is bad other than "muh name pronunciation."

Honestly the name works, I couldn't imagine being able to associate the normal pronunciation of the name Simon with him. I know feeling as if See-moan fits him perfectly is just because it's how I know him, but it definitely fits him more than Symon.
