Ha ha I spoiled you , this is the last scene .


If you are lazy to watch through 14 episode which you should , you can just watch the cut short movie. They brief through all the filler episode from 4 to 7. Not to mention , cut away all the funny joke that support the boring filler arc of episode 4 to 7 at the same time too .

Now I call episode 4 to7 boring arc because all my friends who are sissy are on the verge of dropping it due to those episode . Now I blame that to the lack of Yui and moe moe characters that they considered funny just because they are cute . They don’t understand manly joke like poking ass and bragging about knowing how to use a gun . They think that yui falling down is funny , that’s why they are all sissy
.
Now before I digress , the starting of the movie promises epicness while Libera Me From Hell is playing and having some new scene(parallel 8 scene) added . The introduction , which is basically a cut short first episode is also well done . But the transition to the supposedly episode 2 felt weird . Maybe because I did watch the actual series , I felt that a lot of stuff is left out and the pacing is awkward . But all the flaws is fucking saved by the arc after Kamina death . What you get is the reconstruction of the whole storyline with all the 3 general vs the whole of Dai Gurren Team . You get new scene with new explosive with new manliness plus a new Simon comeback. Before all that are just review of episode 1 to 8 , it is after Kamina death that the real movie starts. Also , it is after Kamina death that Kamina turns into a great man . Otherwise , he is just a retard that steal Simon limelight . But it is Kamina that made Simon Simon , that’s why it is not too good to speak bad things about about him . Still , for me , Kamina only shine after his death and only after his death , I take a liking of him . It is like what others said , you will see the value of something after you loses it .

So , the movie is like cutting away all those boring part and supplies you with the climax of the show throughout . Great touch!

All in all this movie is definitely a must watch even if you did watched the TV series . This movie is not death and rebirth of evangelion , it is more like Do you remember love of Macross . Worth watching and get a whole new experience of epic manliness tale .

If they didn’t change the structure of the last scene , this movie will fail for sure , but due to that intelligent touch , it gained my trust in Gurren Lagann again . Don’t believe in the you who believe in me , don’t believe in the you that I believe , believe in the you that believe in yourself.

Now the second movie is on theater now , so hmm , maybe we will get to watch the next movie during Christmas then .
