I know how you feel... but as Nia supporters, we still want the best for her right? As much as we want her for ourselves... I still think Simon should have her. He is the hero after all. Only someone as GAR as Simon can have her.

Which episode of the radio show did he say that on, any summaries of the episode on the web?
Yeah seriously, I want to see some sources. XD I also heard that they say Simon and Nia sleep in the same bed in the seiyuu interviews in the Animage magazine. I don't have it, so...can anyone confirm?

Wait... which episode of the radio show did he say that?
I don't recall him saying that, although admittedly, I haven't been listening to the show every single week, and they keep no back log of their episodes.

Hmm, I can go back and read up the Animage one. It'll be after work though. If there's anything significant, I suppose I can do some more crap scans.

Not really. Gurren-Lagann needs more moves beyond "Giga Drill Break" and its drill missile spams before we can handle more. :|

If Gainax takes a page from GE999 and Harlock, MAYBE more would be welcome, but outside of a Lord Genome OVA I wouldn't want anymore, even if the next opponent after the Anti-Spiral is the Great Dimensional Government.

...

Note on the "not virgins" issue - first place I saw that was /a/. Could be a trap set up by someone like quina or real info posted by Japanese speaker, but I wouldn't take it too seriously. It's more dubious in origin than 40%.

...

Oh, in other news (slowpoke.jpg?), Gainax updated their GL stand-alone website with official names for some of the new characters. Of note,

1. Reite -> Leite (personally, I always heard her name as "Late").
2. Makken
3. Lordgenome (Lord Genome) Head
4. "Dark Nia" -> Messenger Nia
5. Shibera -> Cybela
6. Gimbley -> Guinble (what).

see i don't understand this. Nia has the same genetic makeup as the Mugann... so if she were "Drilled" for argument's sake, wouldn't she explode?

I'll say this: "Go beyond the impossible and kick reason to the curb!"

Anyway I think I read the not virgin part of LJ.

I'm fairly sure knowing how Nia and Simon are that they could very easily sleep in the same bad and still be virgins.

"Action, so much action your eyes will explode. Sure, Simon and Nia's relationship will develop thoroughly to what everyone wants to see but I found a way to do it through exciting action. Anti-Spiral back-story? Full of action, too. Epilogue? It's also pure action. Of course, there is the emotional impact to make the action worthwhile but the fact remains that the action is still as extreme and styled as I wanted it to be. So you know what to expect this Sunday: adrenaline-filled dramatic action. “

is that "Great Dimensional Government" thing even an accurate translation? cause i've seen other groups translate as Great Dimensional rift.

anyways, the writers said if they make another one, it will be brand new characters, and that Simon's story will end here.

Apparently we've got a lurker from 4chan who posted this without providing any kind of reference whatsoever.

People should know by now that they shouldn't trust anything they hear about GL unless you see a legit source (and even then they shouldn't trust it all too much).

Meh, i just don't hope that at the end, everyone is going to be around Simon, clapping and saying: Omedetou!
Or Nia turning into a giant angel-thing and make everyone turn into tang

I just expect lots of battles and GAR scenes

One thing I can tell you is, the only Gainax staff that shows up in the radio show, as far as I know, is Manabe-san...
affectionally called "hige no hito" (The Bearded One). He has a section where he answers GL plot line questions sent in by the listeners.

I'm not aware of Imaishi showing up in the onsen Gurren Lagann radio.
If it happened, I missed it.

Until "jigen dai-bakufu" is spelled out in kanji somewhere, we don't know for sure if it's 次元大幕府 or 次元大瀑布
In other words, either one could be correct.

Yeah, this is kind of old. But I've always called her Cybela, and her name's been rendered as that in English on ANN and Wikipedia since her first appearance. I was pleasantly surprised that it was the official spelling. Fun thing to note, her and Guinble's page is named "ginsive.html", but the image on the page is named "guincyb.gif".

I remember hearing "Maple Story", but I'm not 100% sure.

Maple Story is correct. Childrens show based on a Korean MMO game.
Frankly, it looks terribly boring. Although the design on the monster girl looks kinda cute.

It's definitly not something I'm gonna be following though.

probably nothing quite like GL, but still, won't be a bad season.
