I am so watching this!
Dear readers, I give to thee the Gurren Lagann we didn’t know we wanted but so needed – KILL la KILL!
I confess that I never watched Tengen Toppa in its completion and though I was forced to suffer through it because of the action, and less romance crap, I had to drop it after DAT MOMENT! It just so wasn’t worth it anymore! And so it was forgotten, even though HE shall never be!
But lo and behold, years later, the people behind that show (minus GAINAX, though one would argue they made GAINAX, bring us a new series which if the Promo is to go by, is the kind of show we want! It’s like a 100% crossover of Cutey Honey and Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann!
Cutie Honey brings the yuri while TTGL brings the action! Seriously though, the similarities don’t even just stop at the story but crosses over into the art as well! Matoi Ryuuko, the Main girl, looks so much like a crossover btn Kamina and older Simon, or better known as their baby, it’s like it was intentional! Her uniform is like a re-incarnation of Gurren! Are we really sure this doesn’t take place in TTGL’s future? Or at least AU Future?! I wouldn’t put it passed these crazy awesome guys that use galaxies as weapons!
Then there is Mankanshoku Mako! I can already tell she is going to make this series! That is if it gets boring real quick, she will be the character you wish was on screen at that moment! She promises lots of fun this girl does! And just like all our awesome heroines that have come so far (Canaan, Aika, Layla), Ryuuko has her as that partner that is shipped with her at default! Won’t lie to you guys, I am already shipping these two!
But not to forget, there is another that might just steal that honour of waifu No1! The Student Council President Kiryuuin Satsuki! Girls’ rivalry is very different from guys’ so depending on the tone of this anime, we might end up in their direction. The story is probably about these two at the core.
So interesting! I am so looking forward to this!
