Rossiu: GROWING UP HOTTER THAN YOU 
15th-Dec-2007 12:46 am
Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA
I keep wanting to make a COME WATCH GL POST, but I do not think I can do any better than suzimi's introductory GL post here and (not worksafe for brainbreak of the Kamina variety) THIS spoilertastic screencap post of Simon/Viral, Leeron/Viral, Kamina/Simon, Rossiu/Simon LOVE.







IT IS SUCH A CRACK SEND-OFF OF THIS Episode 11 scene where SIMON GOES GARLOCK AND GOES GATTAI WITH ROSSIU (the meaning of GAR) - Simon, my beloved, you're SO KICKASS and :') you're growing up SO MUCH FASTER THAT I THOUGHT YOU WOULD! (Except it seems that adult!Simon's voice was used for baby!Simon's voice at the beginning of this clip... which THEN switched BACK to baby!Simon's voice)

♥ GATTAI with Rossiu CRACKS ME UP TOTALLY (especially when Simon says, "GATTAI DA!" and Rossiu is in that hilariously and probably intentionally compromising position and goes :D! "HAI!". Rossiu's absolute relief to see Simon makes me so happy. ♥

Gurren Lagann: AKA Kids Can Kick Ass, Too.

WARNING HUGE SPOILERS IF YOU CAN GUESS WHO THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT






WARNING: Spoilers for Gurren Lagann all the way to Episode 27


I was talking to ambiance about Rossiu and I wrote so much that I thought I would put it in a separate post WITH PICTURES.

ROSSIU GREW UP REALLY PRETTY (oh be quiet: the long hair, the suit, the COMPLETELY REPRESSED, UPRIGHT AND UPTIGHT ATTITUDE - it makes me people like me want to get people like him down and dirty and all their inhibitions minus'd to see what sort of person they REALLY ARE underneath it all):





OH MY GOD. ROSSIU. ♥ WHERE DO I START: the part where I am this MASSIVE MASSIVE FAN OF ROSSIU'S SEIYUU (WHO ALSO VOICED WOLFRAM) AND THEREFORE THAT MEANS I CAN NEVER HATE ANY CHARACTER SHE VOICES, or the part where I am a massive Simon/Rossiu fan - OH D8. I am a Kamina/Simon, Simon/Rossiu fan, and Simon/Viral fan. COMPLETELY. AT THE SAME TIME.

BUT BACK TO ROSSIU.

First of all, I think he has a good heart. And he has always been the smartest in the Gurren-dan. I have this SPECIAL LOVE in my heart for good administrators (except when they are GLINTY and megane and SECRETLY EVIL), especially when they are the ONLY ONE WITH THE BRAINS IN THE ENTIRE ROW ROW FIGHT DA POWER group. I mean, you need your rebels to BREAK FREE and BURN FOR THE NATION, but you also need your administrators to keep the state running, yeah? Yeah. And also, I think he will make a fabulous President and Simon was totally right to make the Rossiu choices he did.

I think Simon never stopped believing in Rossiu, the silly idealist (Simon, I mean), and thank Kamina for that. ♥ I think Simon fundamentally wants to believe in people, and he knew there was good in Rossiu and didn't want Rossiu to destroy that in himself.

I think Rossiu is essentially a good person with his heart in the right place, and I really do believe that at all times, he thought he was doing the right thing. I do not think there is evil in him, he genuinely believed that he was doing the right thing, making the hard choice, so that things would be better for everyone else. I can forgive someone for doing wrong if they were trying to do right.

People who are "OMG ROSSIU SUCKS" kind of break my heart, a lot. I think they are doing a lot of disservice to a complex character. I am sad that Rossiu could not break out of his upbringing - episode 5 is DAMN IMPORTANT in this regard oh my God. It's like Rossiu's past is this massive shadow hanging over him that he has never been able to shake off, despite how distasteful he thinks its principles were. Or did think, once upon a time. It's kind of sad to see that the sort of thing that made Rossiu ON FIRE WITH INDIGNATION when he was younger was the sort of injustice he grew up to perpetuate, but it's what makes him fascinating.

And the sad thing, you know, is that if you were a utilitarian you would think that ROSSIU WAS TOTALLY RIGHT.

Also: I am happy that Rossiu tried to kill himself, and even happier that Simon succeeded in stopping him. I would have been VERY UPSET if Rossiu had succeeded in killing himself, because EXCUSE ME I LOST KAMINA I DON'T WANT TO LOSE ANY MORE PEOPLE I LOVE, OKAY, and I think Simon can TOTALLY RELATE and that's why Simon did what he did.

I am happy Rossiu tried to kill himself because, once you realise you've made a mistake you try to make it *right*, and even if KILLING YOURSELF is the only way you know to make things right, you do it. I think Rossiu tried to kill himself because he knew that there was no way to make right the things he'd done.

HAHAHAHA LINKIN PARK'S WHAT I'VE DOOOOOONE STARTS PLAYING NOW WHY HELLO ROSSIU THIS IS YOUR THEME SONG for your suicide arc.

SO OMG, I CANNOT HATE ROSSIU. ALSO he is voiced by SAIGA MITSUKI AKA the only woman seiyuu my heart will ever truly belong to, the seiyuu who voiced Wolfram, and I will love her forever and I CAN NOT EVER TRULY HATE ANYBODY SHE HAS LENT HER VOICE AND GIVEN LIFE TO. Admittedly I do not love Rossiu as much as I love Wolfram, but I do not think I will ever love any anime character as much as I love Wolfram. XDXDXD

That comic. Those life-lessons. THE ROSSIU LOVE.

This post is filled with win.

ROSSIU LOVES YOU FOR MENTIONING HIM BY NAME AND "LOVE" NEXT TO HIS NAME, because that NEVER HAPPENS NEARLY ENOUGH IN FANDOM ♥

Well, if he doesn't, I DO ♥

XDDDDDD THANK YOU SO MUCH! I am so glad you enjoyed it! (Didn't know you watched GL! ♥)

I love GL, even though it broke me so totally and completely. I was stuck on episode 8 for a while, and then I made myself watch the rest... and cried even more OTL;; BUT I STILL LOVED IT.

I love Rossiu, and I think I could probably ship him with Simon. Kamina/Simon... is weird, because I don't know if I ship it, but it's still my favorite relationship on the show!
14th-Dec-2007 06:24 pm (UTC)
Oh God, I know exactly what you mean. For some mystical reason of fate the night I watched up til Episode 7 I decided to save Episode 8 to another day, and THEN I learned without watching the episode what happened in it.

... I still haven't been able to bring myself to watch it.

I THINK SIMON'S LIFE SUCKS, he loses EVERYBODY he loves. Same as Yoko. I call it the curse of Kamina.

I am kind of getting myself through LIFE WITHOUT ... you know who... by replacing the void in my heart with Viral and Simon/Viral and their GATTAI OF FATE. It sort-of-works. Sometimes.

I am totally Simon/Rossiu, and would completely ship it more! ♥ Kamina/Simon is ALSO my favourite relationship on the show ♥ I think timeskip!Simon/Kamina would totally work out, though part of me is, "... ISN'T THAT A LOT LIKE SELF-SHIPPING?!" because GAR!Simon is pretty much ... KAMINA VERSION 2.0 WITH only slightly LESS STUPIDITY.

I love the Simon-Kamina relationship. SO. MUCH. LOVE that I want to FST for it. experienced and ambiance already created a Kamina/Simon FST, so I'd make the Simon-Kamina one! ♥
... what a difference a small punctuation mark makes maybe? JUST PURE LOVE.

You've so made me want to watch this show... damn you! ^_^
14th-Dec-2007 05:34 pm (UTC) - EMITS HEARTS AT YOU
I WOULD SO LOVE IT IF YOU WATCHED THIS SHOW! ♥ Or if you gave it a try! ♥

if YSI works for you, try this? :D

If not, I am sure I could find youtube links somewhere (although the last time I checked they were deleted) if you say the word? ♥
14th-Dec-2007 05:58 pm (UTC) - Re: EMITS HEARTS AT YOU
*griiin* I'm DLing eps 1-4 now...you seem to be missing 5? *cannot watch shows out of order* :P Is there anywhere else I can get DDLs? I don't like to watch youtube if I can help it...quality snob, here! ^_^

No promises on when I can watch it...stupid work and stupid sickness and stupid xmas fics... but yes! It's on The List. ^_^
14th-Dec-2007 06:18 pm (UTC) - *grin!*
I'll get 5 up, no worries! I just didn't the first time around because 5 is quite slow-moving and to me, didn't have the qualities of an episode which would make me sit up and totally get into the show. ♥ Soon! ♥

Sadly, the DDL site that used to do GL episodes got taken down after a complaint by the company who'd licensed it for the North American release.

YAY for it making the list! :) Hopefully by the time work clears up you will be able to see this! :)

- Sentencing your friend to death, sacrificing millions of people's lives, and then attempting to commit suicide will cause the nerdy chick to fall in love with you, even if you had her strapped to a bomb before.

i never thought i'd say something like THAT describes my OTP of the series, but sadly, it does. lawl.

actually, my OTP is Kamina/Simon, but Rossiu/Kinon is SO RARE that anytime someone mentions it i'm like EMITTING HEARTS FUCKING *EVERYWHERE* ):
15th-Dec-2007 02:16 am (UTC)
IT DOES, THOUGH. ;) XDXDXD I AM GLAD IT AMUSED YOU! I would tell you to ship something less ... less... dysfunctional-and-codependent, but that would be like Kamina calling Yuuri stupid.

I've probably told you this before, but timeskip!Kinon = girl!Jade, in terms of appearance.

GODS I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN. ♥ IT IS OKAY I TOTALLY RELATE, HAVING SHIPPED PAIRINGS THAT RARE BEFORE. Simon/Rossiu is... NOT THAT COMMON EITHER.

I found your Kinon of LJ post while looking for GL things, is the Internet not a small place.

Woah... Where do these fandoms keep coming from?! O.o

I SAW A GUY WITH A YGO T-SHIRT AT BUILD-A-BEAR WORKSHOP TODAY! I acted like a total dork when I noticed... I was all "OMG! YOUR SHIRT! IS THAT YGO?! MY FRIEND WHO IS A LAWYER IS TOTALLY INTO YGO! YAY!" but my SQUEE! was met with awkward silence, heh. He ended up making a Magnificent Monkey, though! Obviously he wasn't that traumatised. ^^;

Oooh, I also found a YGO Nintendo DS game! xD I have resisted buying it so far - but do you think it'd be fun? It's only €4.95... SO TEMPTING?
15th-Dec-2007 02:22 am (UTC)
They're not that many! ;) I'm just going insane over two for the time being! ;) And you know I've been into GL for about... maybe two weeks now. XDXDXDXD

I would tell you that the fandoms are coming FROM the awesomeness of fandom, but I know that YGO came from llamrei, and Gurren Lagann came from a_songfor_xx and EXAM STRESS. GL GOT ME THROUGH THE EXAMS.

OH MY GOD YOU SAW A GUY WITH A YGO T-SHIRT? THAT IS SO COOL! ♥ SWEETIE I SO WISH I COULD UM PERSUADE YOU INTO IT SO YOU COULD FEEL THE LOVE TOO BUT UM! ♥ It is okay.

But YGO CLOTHING! SO COOL! omg I once made a YGO post in a community and a commentor told me that they were in their YGO pyjamas as they were reading it. I was ♥ THEY SELL YGO PYJAMAS THAT IS SO COOL! I did not even think that people would still wear YGO clothing nowadays, so glad to be wrong!

MAGNIFICENT MONKEY IS GOOD! ♥

OH OH OH! ♥ Um! Do you like card games? The YGO Nintendo DS game would be... superficially, not unlike Pokemon, but it will be very much like buying a card game. I am torn between:

(a) omg YGO! You should totally get it and try it and I hope you will like it!
(b) omg don't spend the money! You might not like it?
(c) OMG IT IS SO CHEAP?! JUST TRY IT! ♥

... XDXDXDXDXD TRY IT IF YOU CAN AFFORD IT? ♥ But um! It is not very representative of a series? Imagine: it is as if Supernatural released a LET'S DRIVE IN AMERICA game. It's a game about what the series characters do all the time, but it doesn't tell you a lot about the series or the characters. :)))

Beh! I need to stop reading your fandom posts (except for BoG, and Ouran, of course!) You're getting me into too many fandoms!

Would DL GL (heh!) but need to get my hard drives sorted out first T__T
15th-Dec-2007 05:10 pm (UTC)
*dances the happy dance of spread-the-fandom joy* ♥ THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU ♥ I LIVE TO SHARE THE LOVE!

DL AWAY PLEASE! ♥ But sort the HD soon, cause the links expire December 23, and in a day my YSI SUPER ACCOUNT dies too (so no more uploading eps like these), so if you don't get them before the 23rd of this month you'd have to get them from me in person. ♥ Which I am HAPPY TO DO but it would be so much easier via DDL! ;)

15th-Dec-2007 03:03 pm (UTC)
Congrats, you've just infected my mind with a new fandom. D8
15th-Dec-2007 05:11 pm (UTC)
XDXDXD I AM SO HAPPY TO HEAR IT ♥ ♥ ♥ WHEN WE NEXT MEET I SHALL BE AS HAPPY TO SHARE IT WITH YOU AS YOU WERE SO HARE YGO WITH ME - THAT IS, VERY HAPPY! :)
