Hmmm, this is going to take a while to get. So while it's getting here I'll just try to imagine the best looking Gonzo anime ep ever.... it's hard, but I'll try!

Eh, looking on the staff listing most of the KAs are GL's core staff like Hisashi Mori doing the UNION sequence and most of the mecha action seemed by Amemiya's hands.

On the animation thing, while it is very nice, there is still the Gonzo-feel to it in a way. Probably in the colors layerings since some parts didn't feel as vibrant and rich in their palettes, and some non-important parts like the Nakim part. The vital parts however were nicely animated.

Haha, so while it's not completely on mark, the prediction on the moon-gattai thing did happen in a way after all. Well, a part of it at least.

Meh, I'm kinda pissed they went the "lingering emotions" and the "there's a chance to return to the old!Nia route" but I suppose that's the best way for hope.

And Rossiu did nothing noteworthy.

This was the most awesome episode to date, and it's only going to get better. I love you Gainax.

What an awesome episode. Starting from Simon's and Viral's speech was a great way to kick off.

Wow, pretty awesome ep. The character scenes were definitely Gonzo, and had that washed out bleh look to them. The space scenes were AWESOME though. Although, at this point I can see why they wouldn't want to throw their ALL at this ep, since the episodes coming out will have to consistantly one-up the previous one all the way to the finish.

It just me or after seeing Arc Gurren Lagann in this episode then comparing it to this picture

http://randomc.animeblogger.net/imag...Large%2020.jpg

It looks like we are gonna be seeing the Arc GL maybe gattai with a bigger Gunmen, then that gattai with something even bigger than that? I'm guessing the moon ship will be the last one but I'm not sure what the 3rd Gunmen is in the pic. Man that will be crazy if its true, Gunmen piloting a Gunmen piloting a Gunmen piloting a Gunmen :P

The Moon Ship is definitely the 3rd Gurren Lagann. Look at the big head, it has 3 drill openings at the upper portion. The head of the 3rd Gurren also has 3 drills comes out of the top portion of the head in the same places. The 4th Gurren is probably something that will be reserved for the very, very end.

Very awesome episode. Back to what the show was about prior to the timeskip.

The references/homages are awesome in this episode. A Char's Counterattack and a Getter Robo one that I can see off the bat. ;o

Only thing bugging me is that thousands of people were still inside while Arc Gurren Lagann was doing somersaults in space.

Yup, I finally did get to see it - simply outrageous fun, I must say. Normally I wouldn't give this episode top marks because the epic wasn't uniform (now that there's no moon, what about the tides?) but the amount of creativity, ESPECIALLY with Arc Gurren-Lagann's pilot, brought a smile to my face.

The first half was perfect. Just perfect. The second half was cool to say the least, with enough awesome to prevent me from giving this bad marks, though we needed another GAR scene to really give it the full thumbs up. Just slightly better than fifteen in my mind, and a fine finish to the '90s arc.

I missed /a/'s fire fest but I'm sure they went berserk over the smiling moon, especially with the hillarious "CELESTIAL BODIES HATE HUMANITY" drawing and the reposts of the moon from Majora's Mask. Haha, oh wow, it must have caused an uproar.

40% next week!

Yeah, the obvious Getter Robo Ark references everywhere, including the transformation.
Now I know what the writer meant when he said they were influenced by that manga.
I guess it's more of an in-joke of Nakajima's work.

IIRC they wouldn't fell anything because of the zero gravity

I think the Arc Gurren-Lagann's pilot being Gurren-Lagann itself is a one-time deal - reusing the same plot device ruins the effect a bit. I mean by this in that during episode three, we were all impressed when Lagann fused with Gurren but now it's no big deal, fusions are a common element to the story. Looking back on episode three, it's not as awesome as when we first saw it because the fusions are so common.

Regarding the enormus red monster from the OP, duckroll's probably right. Remember that the OP's comparisons shots are not to scale - think back, Great Gurren was around one hundred times Gurren-Lagann's size. Arc Gurren-Lagann is something like a thousand times Great Gurren's size, and Garcadia is something like a million times the size of Arc Gurren-Lagann! In the OP they're of a comparable size, and even then the giant mech simply TOWERS over them.

Suffice to say, it's going to be big. Bigger than Unicron/Getter Emperor? Gainax looks ambitious right now so I wouldn't put it past 'em.

Words alone cannot explain the awesomeness of this eps. A fucking awesome way to end an arc. Just like episode 15 back then.

The Arc Gurren-Lagann was just pure awesomeness, from the RAWs I'm just particulary stunned. Managed the awesomeness scene via youtube...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jTCNHHm3scc

words alone cannot described how Simon and Viral virtually fucking PUNCHED them into ANOTHER DIMENSION. They PUNCHED them.

Awesome eps deserved a 10. I'm glad they didn't killed off Nia. Can't wait for the new arc. Captain GARLOCK!!
