Simon will need to assert his own future. They say heroes rise through difficult times, it's his time now. All I pray is that after Kamina's epic demise, Yoko will not follow him in death... *touch wood*

Why can't we rate it more then 10? Can't say much else except that I wish we had cartoons like this in america during saturday morning (although it airs on TV-to sundays) and Katsuyuki KOnishi freakin owns! (and I hate saying owns)

Also I bet that it's really high in the anime mag fanpolls (CMON KAMINA, PIERCE THE TOP OF THE POLL ROSTER, WITH YOUR DRILL LIKE CHARISMA

Like most what most people have said already. THIS EPISODE IS FULL OF EPIC! Theres not doubt now that gurren lagann will most likely be added in the next super robot game. By the way, can someone do a brief translation for kamina memorial from ganaix? XD

As much as everyone hopes Gurren Lagan will be in the next SRW game, the biggest problem is that it's license is with Konami.
Bandai will have to negotiate with Konami to use GL.

O yea....forgot the fact that konami kind of owns the gurren license and its responsible for making the merchandises and games for it >_>; It is a problem, but Gurren Lagann just screams out "PUT ME INTO SRW PLZ" xD. Anyways, im really anticipating for the future episodes now. I'm curious as to how Simon is going to end up like this....

i just found out that Yoko is actually 14 years of age!!! same age as Simon!! HOLY MOTHER A GOD! i was fantasizing over a 14 year old.

uh oh, since Simon is going to be like Kamina i think Yoko might just fall in love with him and start a new triangle with Nia. Hopefully Nia/Simon would prevail if such a thing occurs.

lol, Yoko being 14 is pretty unexpected.

I love this anime so much. I hope it doesn't end at episode 26.

why do people always react this way when real ages are revealed to be unexpected? there must be some psychological impact of finding out that you are actually a lolcon (although yoko has the body of an 18 year old so that doesnt really count ^__^)

He... really died. Damn, it was way too soon for that to happen. Besides, he would give 10x the hot kiss... Yoko lost that too. XD

I wonder how this will affect Simon. I think it will take a while for him to recover, no way he will be alright at the end of the next episode.

This episode was by far the best one, IMO.

Would be funny if the first thing Nia do next episode is to get up and punch Shimon shouting "Who do you think I am?!" That might get thing on track faster than playing cute princess...
Either way, I have faith in Gainax at the moment, they can do it right...right?

and Shimon x Yoko is a big nono...
Think about SHimon kissing Yoko and said he can do 10x better than Kamina...herher it gonna kills..

How the heck can anything top this?

It feels like, after nearly 20 years since the first Top o Nerae, and us fans wishes have finally been answered.
Great way to put it guys lol, this is the shining star of 2007 so far, along with Lucky Star. Seirei no Moribito is kicking ass too.

I don`t know why people are so against the Simon X Yoko pairing... they are the same age.... i think there is something wrong with Kamin 17 pairing with yoko who is only 14....

i do think that there will be some sorta triangular interaction between simon yoko and nia. but thats in the FAR future... like 3rd arc... when his character is fully formed

They can call her "14" til the Sun freezes... its still a bunch of baloney. The only age references are a "wiki" (apply salt) and an early character design note. The content of the series shows two people of roughly the same age (Kamina and Yoko) and Simon being younger. She talks, walks, and acts several years older than Simon. Now if Simon amps himself up (Keitaro 2.0), then a couple of years difference won't matter so much. The two of them have a lot of grief to work through before I'd find some connection between Yoko and Simon viable though. Perhaps incoming Nia awakens something (triangle competition time?).

@X_Danny_X: tastes differ? People find different things attractive? Big boobs don't automatically make for beauty? Insulting people for liking different types of women won't get you very far.

That's pretty much what the official site says though, right? Yoko acts more mature but is around the same age as Simon? Everyone's free to call it "baloney" and debate the reality of a 14 or 15 year old looking like Yoko (I'm not sure I'd by it initially); however, if that's what the gainax crew say, than I'm not sure I see the point in continually arguing about her age. It doesn't really matter, and it's not gonna change. And it's not a romance series, so I could care less whether Simon hooks up with Yoko or Nia or anyone.

Yikes...relax man, it's only a tv show. Like Vexx said, everyone's got different tastes. And if Yoko being 14 is that much of a problem, maybe you should change your avy...I doubt it lessens the temptation to fantasize

あばよ、ダチ公 。
That reminds me.
I don't know if it came up already, but the episode title "Abayo Dachikou (あばよダチ公)" is actually title of the first movie Yuusaku Matsuda starred as the main role, in the mid 70s.

It's just one of many 70s tribute, along with obvious Ashita no Joe parodies such as the pig escape, cross-counter and burned down to ashes, this "part 1" of GL showed.

I see a lot of Yuusaku homages these days... One Piece's Aokiji is an obvious one, Onimusha 2 resurrected him with computer graphics, and even in the recent episode of School Rumble.

Now, starting from next episode, we should expect lots of 80s homages.
