So the much awaited movie is out. Yeah it’s about 80% recycled footage, but the last 20% of the show was actually new stuff and consisted of the Four Generals getting their ass beaten up by the Gurren-dan. Considering that it’s a rehash movie, it’s actually pretty nice to have some new content, but the fight still felt really ‘summarized’… as if they cut and pasted it around. I can almost see the Director’s Cut edition with ’30 mins of new footage!’ coming out already.
But there was one awesome part they added, namely Yoko getting a bit more screentime, going mano-a-mano with her gun against Adiane. It was quite refreshing to see her fighting melee since she’s a sniper and her mini-showdown with Adiane was really impressive… to the point of her bra getting ripped off. Awesome timing for fan service there, Gainax.
Now another year or so wait for the Lagann-hen. I want to see what they are gonna do for the ending. The series ending is pretty much cemented in legends already so can they top it off or will they totally ruin it?
