Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA
So THIS spectacular image of GAR-beyond-compare had the GL community reacting in HILARIOUS ways with enthusiasm! I therefore feel that it is PAST TIME for a:
Gurren Lagann Official Art Post


Gurren Lagann: On Your Screen, BREAKING YOUR WINDOWS
I don't mean that Windows! Or those windows! I mean LITERAL WINDOWS!


... save for the fact that Viral, Rossiu, and Leeron AREN'T THERE (... CLEARLY, NOT GAR ENOUGH), and that BOOTA is...




KICKING ASS AND TAKING NAMES!

(slight spoilers)


. bad guys


THE Biggest Badass of all. The ultimate villain: you know, the kind you THOUGHT YOU KILLED but DIDN'T QUITE FINISH off and then he comes back to BITE YOU in the ass.

... this one not literally, I hope.


The villains who Occupy your Time and Plot Space until you are TOUGH ENOUGH to fight the BIG one!


This picture is at once sick, beautiful, and makes me want to laugh so hard at poor, utterly whipped Viral (the blond. Who is one of my favourites in this series).





. The Girls!





And because Nia is Something Special, and I adore her:





These two obviously for the boys. But whenever Yoko's involved, that always seems to be the case.



. Simon & Nia ♥

Because my het OTP of the series definitely deserves a lot of love. ♥






(I own this and it makes me so happy, omg!
there was even a music box of this, but it cost more than I could spare - but it was VERY PRETTY)





Rossiu makes DVD coverboy:



AND:


Rossiu gets some love! ♥
(He never gets enough in the series)
And I can't believe this lovely squishy cute picture is OFFICIAL art! :D


THIS HERE 'CAUSE IT CRACKED ME UP!



Plus,

GL Merchandise that looks Pretty Darn Good


Because EEEE so cute ♥ AND TIMESKIP!LOVE!

I HAD NO IDEA THE CHIBI FIGURES WERE SO CUTE:







Keychain and pencilboard!

Oh god. I have to have that keychain.

Hi there! *beams* I'm not sure if this will make you want even more things, but the Gainax Gurren Lagann merchandise store is pretty amazing! ;)
30th-Dec-2007 07:14 pm (UTC)
You are my new hero.
30th-Dec-2007 05:27 pm (UTC)
sdkjghsdkgs all i can see in that first "bad guys" picture is DARRY AND GIMMY, ESPECIALLY DARRY AND HER LITTLE PLUSHIE, LOOKING LIKE THEY'RE ABOUT TO KICK BIG BAD LORD GENOME'S ASS. and it's adorable.

it reminds of... you ever seen that video of the little girl talking about the boogie man and how he's gonna "kick his ass" (she actually said "ask", but it sounds SO WRONG).
yeah. makes me think of like, Darry talking about how WE'RE GONNA GO KICK HIS ASS :D and Rossiu's like DARRY YOU SHOULDN'T SAY THAT. YOU SHOULD SAY "BUTT". :|

*grin* The first thing I looked for in that picture was "WHERE IS ROSSIU?" and there he is... as a face. But still there! So cute. ♥

Maybe Darry and Gimmy want to kick LG's ass with the plushie! Maybe LG will reveal himself to be a great big softie inside and weak to cute things! :D IT COULD WORK! This series is crack enough!

HAHAHAHAHA you just know it was Rossiu who did the raising when it came to Gimmy and Darry, and the reason that they turned out well-behaved. Nia would ... not be good at any teaching except the TOTALLY OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD kind, Simon I don't think would really be that nurturing, and Rossiu would just boss them around until he became their de-facto parent. Clean up, suit up, GAR has its place but not at the dining table. ♥

Oh holy HOT
30th-Dec-2007 07:04 pm (UTC)
:D :D :D

I AM SO HAPPY YOU THINK SO ♥

CAN I INTEREST YOU IN THIS SERIES ♥
31st-Dec-2007 09:47 pm (UTC)
I'M ALREADY KINDA SORTA IN THE SERIES? EVEN THOUGH I ONLY WATCHED THE 1ST EPISODE SO FAR. >>

YEAY, YOU GAVE IN TO THE SIMON/NIA ♥
30th-Dec-2007 05:32 pm (UTC)
I FEEL THE GREAT URGE TO WATCH THIS FOR THE BOOB.

PLS TO BE MOAR SWIMSUITS.
30th-Dec-2007 07:07 pm (UTC)
*GRIIIN* If that's what you want to watch the series for, I PROMISE YOU YOU WILL NEVER BE DISAPPOINTED AS LONG AS YOKO IS AROUND. Yoko's character designs are this, This and this. ;)

... Episode 6 is a hot-springs episode, which means, YEAH, swimsuits all the way! And... I think Episode 10 or 11 is a BEACH EPISODE so all girls in swimsuits! Yeah, there is LOADS of what you're looking for. ;)

Ooh, I really like the art for GL. Probably this is going to sound hopelessly clueless to you, but um, what's the show about?
31st-Dec-2007 07:41 pm (UTC) - THE TALE OF GURREN LAGANN
Gurren Lagann is about AWESOME AND MORE AWESOME!



Oh yes stick to the facts :))) (that's all true, though!)

Gurren Lagann is a Gainax series (the people who made Evangelion, so please to be prepared for a lot of mind@#$kery, heartbreak, CRACK, beautiful animation, and a GREAT STORY), which has massive amounts of TOTAL AWESOME, LOTS AND LOTS OF MECHA, and fanservice for guys and girls alike!

At its heart Gurren Lagann is the story of a young boy named Simon, who lives on an alternate version of Earth where a race of creatures called the Beastmen have colonised the surface of the planet, forcing humans to live underground. Simon is a young boy in one of these underground human villages. He is a driller, one of the village people who expands the village by drilling through the dirt. Simon lost both parents in an earthquake and is now an orphan without any other family.

The only love in his life comes from a wild young man named Kamina, Simon's aniki, who believes in Simon and who is the only person in the village who understands him. Kamina believes in the idea of the Surface, in a world without ceilings, and is constantly trying to break out of the underground to reach the surface world. For this he is derided by the villagers, who do not believe that there is such a thing as a world aboveground (or who may be pretending that there is no world above to prevent their kind from leaving the safety of their underground home).

One day a young girl named Yoko (the source of a disturbing amount of fanservice for a fourteen-year-old character) crashes into their world with a Ganmen, a mecha piloted by a beastman. Yoko belongs to a rebel group living aboveground, who constantly fight off the mecha Ganmen piloted by the beastmen whose task is to keep the human population down. Kamina and Simon seize a Ganmen for their own and break out of the underground world with Yoko, realising that there is a sky, there is a world above, and that there is another life beyond that which they have always known.

Aboveground, they meet a very very strange but incredibly intelligent mechanic named Leeron, Yoko's rebel gang, a group of Beastmen fighter siblings: brother Kittan and his three younger sisters Kiyol, Kinon, and Kiyal. They also encounter the beastman Viral, who is a cat-shark hybrid (all beastmen are), and who is a major antagonist early on, but will play a Large Part in the future to come. :)))

This is the first arc of Gurren Lagann, which can be divided into the following story arcs:

(1) Break Through the Heavens! - the literal coming-out story, the underground-to-surface arc
(2) The Mecha Power Acquisition Arc - where just about everybody and their aniki acquire Ganmen mecha of their own to combat the beastmen
(3) The Struggle for Earth - Where the human protagonists fight to regain control of surface and drive the beastmen away
(4) Consolidation and Timeskipping: Earth won, the surviving humans must now build a new future over the ruins of the past

(5) Post-timeskip: The series skips forward seven years to the new story arc, which is Overpopulation Doom (the ensuing arcs are built on a lot of spoilers for the first few, so just say the word if you want 'em!)
a
One of the best ways to know the plot fast without having to DL the episodes is via the Gurren Lagann manga. ;)

OH, CHRIS. I didn't mean to put you to all the effort of writing an epic about Gurren Lagann; I was just asking for a one/two-line summary. This comment is so you! ♥ Thanks for the link to manga downloads. I am downloading, and will read one day when I require distraction from the Lore!
31st-Dec-2007 06:25 am (UTC)
Oh god, Nia looks the cutest- but I think I am developing a thing for Viral and I've not even SEEN this yet. Also...you've probably seen this, but:
Photobucket
Viral's face CRACKS ME UP. XD

31st-Dec-2007 06:41 pm (UTC) - I will completely encourage this Viral thing!
*BEAMS* HAHAHAHA the Lucky Star parody, THAT WAS CRAAAAZY stuff! ♥

ALSO OH MAN VIRAL CRACKS ME UP ALL THE TIME.

And yes, Nia is adorably adorably cute and definitely the girl of Gurren Lagann that has my love-for-female-characters heart!

I WOULD TOTALLY ENCOURAGE THIS VIRAL THING, AND AND I must show you this:


IT CRACKED ME UP
now you have something to traumatise Island!Viral with :D
fanart, from here. *just replace the xx's in the html with working html :D)

Viral's later appearances:



HAHAHAHA HYSTERICAL COSTUME WARNING:




VIRAL IS KICKASS (despite getting his ass kicked a lot) ♥

and clearly this is yaoi manga!Viral, OR SOMETHING:



31st-Dec-2007 06:12 pm (UTC)
AHHHHHHHHHHHHH saving some of these lovely lovely pics ♥ Thanks for sharing btw! The first pic... feels so GAR XD
31st-Dec-2007 07:29 pm (UTC) - Y HALO THERE PRETTY YOKO ICON
You have such a lovely Yoko icon! *beams* I went to your site to find the original art but omg I am lost and confused with regard to navigation! But if the icon is anything to go by the original art must be gorgeous indeed! ♥

You're most welcome! *beams* I'm so glad you liked these! :) They were linked on the GL community, but I thought it MUCH PRETTIER if they were DIRECTLY DISPLAYED :))))
1st-Jan-2008 01:04 am (UTC)
Oooh, pic spam, SHINY! *starry eyes*
Happy New Year! :D

From the first "bad guy" pic onwards, I couldn't help but realise taht the style seems kinda familiar, like Akira. (esp the merchandise)
Oops, I was just scaring myself. I checked, and nope, they're not related. :)

Why do I relate your het OTP to Howl and Sophie? Must be the hair. 8D
3rd-Jan-2008 03:09 pm (UTC)
HAPPY NEW YEAR, SWEETIE! Hope you had a great one, and that this year will go good for you! :)

It's kinda grungy-funky urban-space-age-graffiti-punk style, yes! ;)

But it is SO MUCH BETTER THAN AKIRA ART D; D: D:

AND SO MUCH BETTER THAN AKIRA - though at moments it can be AS DEPRESSING!

Heh heh, it ain't just you, sweetie! They DO look like Howl and Sophie, and it's not just the hair, it's also the CLOTHES:

PROOF:







5th-Jan-2008 07:22 am (UTC)
Thank you!<3

Ah, I see.

Oh, I was imagining at the end of the movie when Sopie's hair is white and Howl's hair is dark blue. (Post orange hair angst)Anyhow. Yes, clothes. I concur.
3rd-Jan-2008 12:02 pm (UTC) - VIRAL MAKES ME SMILE
HOMG. THAT CHIBI VIRAL FIGURE.

MUST GET. *dramatic squeal*

And the Nia collage!
PINK AND PRETTY. <33
3rd-Jan-2008 03:26 pm (UTC) - YOU make me smile :D
:D I know! The chibis are SO GREAT, aren't they? I want to bring them home! If I were a kid I would try to eat them! :D

KKnM might bring them in, I think? ♥

EEEE I love the Nia college too! INFINITE LOVE FOR INFINITE NIAS! ;)
