Whoa, Yoko in uniform!




Also, spoiler for Nia on Megami magazine.
Mostly just reaffirming most people's speculations.

Why is Nia the Anti-Spiral messenger? Lord Genome created her that way? Do they explain that or we better wait for the series in order to understand that plot point?

i have my suspicious that all the princesses created are messengers and that the king tried to kill them off by means of locking them up and throwing away the key (one which simon happened to find) ~ perhaps the creations of these princesses were not within his control as weve heard countless times that the king is trying to save the human race...

Looks like Garlock succeeds where Genome failed. Should be interesting!

The head matches that of the golden mech from the OP ('Gilgamesh' as some call it), specifically in that it has crown prongs shaped like drills.

nothing to speculate on this week at all... the episode didn't give much info more than spoiler.

well..
- We know now that Gunmen are indeed weapon created to fight Anti-Spiral. Hopefully Gunmen will be reconstructed and used from now. They are cooler than those... hmm what are their name again? We saw them get kicked so bad by Mugan.

Grapple/Grapals, you mean? Well, from what Genome said and the indication of the OP, it does look like Gunmen will be back in the fray again once Simon gets 'banished' in a manner of speaking.

And I don't think Grapples suck worse against the Mugan, it's just that they're more powerful. Otherwise, Gimmy and Darry wouldn't stick with them, and looks like they will judging from the OP. Since Grapples are military units, it's probably too suspicious to let Gurren-dan jack a huge number of them. Not to mention they're still needed for the capital protection. For a bunch of pirates, outdated Gunmens are probably better.

What I don't like is that apparently all the Gunmens will stay the same. I was hoping that Kitan at least gets a general-class upgrade in terms of capability and looks. King of King Kitan Gunmen.

Maybe viral's new Enkidududu will be upgraded to pose more of a threat to enemies. It seems that the poor thing only shows up to get its butt handed to it.

Actually, the one he used in 17 was Enkidudu, the 7 year-old relic. I think Enkidududu will come later, once he joins Gurren-dan (( you know he will )) and gets an upgrade from Leeron.

Pity that Gurren-Lagann seems purely Simon's now alone. I miss the days it was dual-piloted.

Poor wording on my part, I meant to say when Viral gets his new Enkidududu, not that he already had it. I'd agree that it will probably come later, also when Yoko reappears she may be the one to take to piloting Gurren.

I actually like that GL is piloted by Simon alone now. I do wonder how the Lagann magically grew to fit Simon's 21-year old body though, it would make more sense if he sat in the Gurren section.

Oh man, i can only imagine the type of conversation Simon & Rossiu would have, if they were to both pilot now.

There's no access to the core drill in Gurren's pilot seat, it's likely someone needs to be in Lagann to power Gurren-Lagann. Even then, it's not like Lagann was a small mech...at one point it fit five or six people in its cockpit.

In watching 17 and 18, I noticed how the Ganmen-like faces factor into the city decoration, including the particularly large one. We know Kamina City was once Tepperin. With the imminent moon threat, I think I figured out what Future Simon (or Present Simon, depending) was piloting. Somehow, I think he may be taking Kamina City itself out for a spin when the time comes.
