oh god....I think that was more than I was expecting....god I'm sad

Spoiler:


*sniff* anyway, the battle looked absolutely beautiful, especially the final section with the GLs breaking out of each other (well, at least they made use of the otherwise insane robot on top of robot inside robot inside robot inside robot idea)
the anti-spiral made a good final enemy, screaming and whatnot.

all and all I'm very pleased, albeit sad

Makes sense to me.

Best Gainax TV series ever. No questions, no comments.

It also means the "mysterious person" in episode four was probably the narrator as well.

As said many times, this series would have been a really good end...if Gainax didn't give us the prologue scene. If we didn't have the prologue this would have been a LEGENDARY AND EPIC END, but that one very tempting moment was too cruel to bait us with.

I hope Gimmy isn't Garlock, he's not half as awesome as Simon is/was. Kamina wasn't either, though Kamina was still more awesome than Gimmy.

The stage IS set for the prologue, though, as I said. I'm not sure if we should see more or not, given this ending was pretty good, but I want that scene dang it.

...

Ooh, something else I noticed.

Okay, I'm really, really, really impressed. Gainax knocked this one SO FAR out of the park, I consider this one of the best endings that Gurren Lagann can possibly have, and up there with my favorite BONES endings. Seriously, wow.

I don't know. it was a weakness of the earlier episodes to have that, but in the end I don't think that detracts from the ending, though perhaps a bit from the series as a whole.

Agreed, the prologue is just a small extra content for the viewers who still wanted to know what's the path that each of the characters has decided to walk. I don't feel baited at all, nor I feel the urge to see any possible sequel. It's an awesome ending like this, I don't think I could ask for anything better than this either, probably.

The prologue served its purpose in making people look forward to what Simon will become in the future, and even if it doesn't actually happen, we got something just as great.

And personally I think this ending ties up everything. It's just perfect.

Nia is so brave!

For Simon's sake, I hope there's an afterlife... somewhere.

You know, I've always hated bitter sweet endings. And this takes the cake.
I don't know if I'll ever pull myself together again after today...

But life goes on, I'll live my life to the fullest and perhaps one day, when I'm watching the R2 Dvds, I'll think of all the good memories...

But just let me T_T for now...

I pretty much agree with duckroll. And I'll go to orgasm a little more at the animation as the amazing but obvious list in 2ch was actually true. So awesome.
