  1. Commenting just to join the others wanting you guys to watch the movies. Especially the second one! It’s a must watch if youre a gurren lagann fan 😀

  2. Viral’s Dream with the Knowledge that Beastman can’t have children is always hitting me hard emotionally. And How easily he leaves it behind after realizing it was fake.

  3. @inoshishi I like to think that scene shows Viral being willing to give up something he KNOWS he can’t have because he KNOWS what he needs to do.

  4. Ok is anyone else not able to actually watch it? I hit allow access for my Patreon stuff and then it just loops me back to the allow access page

  5. With the fakeKamina, I never thought it was that the spirals were unable to replicate him, I always thought it was more that they wanted to use his image to beat Simon down. Like if his big bro is a sniveling coward then maybe he’ll give up on beating the anti-spirals and live out his days in unreality.

    1. I’ve never seen the multidimensional scenarios as specifically “designed” by the anti-spirals… The labyrinth itself is a conduit constructed by the anti-spiral, but I see the dreamscapes as wholly invented by whomever is experiencing them, either individuals or, in a number of cases, shared consciousnesses. So the “fake Kamina” is a construct of Simon’s insecurities and regrets—a “what if” outcome had he and Bro maybe aimed a bit lower. Same with Viral’s dream of married bliss and genetic legacy—the idea itself is born of Viral’s own desires, which I think weighs heavier than if the anti-spiral were just engineering each scenario. The dreams subsist on “longing.”

      Likewise, the way I interpret everybody’s escape from the labyrinth isn’t due to some newly manifested Kamina interloping and walking in on everybody’s delusions—it’s that Kamina never /stopped/ existing in the first place, living on as a piece of everyone’s (at least specifically Simon and Yoko’s) souls. So in an abstract way, it definitely IS Kamina busting them out of dream prison, but it’s also /because/ they each found it (read: Kamina’s spark) within themselves to understand their newfound complacency was all phony confinement, thus allowing them to break themselves free.

      To me that’s a stronger chord than simply “all the dead guys just sought out the team’s collective subconscious in an effort to snap them out of it.”

  6. Do the impossible, see the invisible
    Row! Row! Fight the power!
    Touch the untouchable, break the unbreakable
    Row! Row! Fight the power!

    Power to the peeps, power for the dreams
    Still missing piece scattering, so incomplete
    We be the most incredible soldier from underground
    See how easy they all fall down

    Digging to the core to see the light
    Let’s get out of here babe, that’s the way to survive
    Ya top of the head, I’m on the set
    Do the impossible, don’t you wanna bet?

    ‘Cause a lot of things changed
    We be waiting in vain
    If you wanna get by no pain no gain
    Wow! Fakers wanna test me again
    Sorry, my rhyme’s gonna snatch your brain yo

    I’m still struggling for the straight up skill
    We gonna, make it a-happen with the crazy rap skill
    Get ready to rumble, now would be the time, uh huh
    If you ain’t know, now you know

    Good luck fellas!

    (Libera me, Domine, de morte æterna,
    In die illa tremenda. in die illa
    Quando coeli movendi sunt et terra,
    Dum veneris judicare
    Sæculum per ignem.
    Tremens factus sum ego et timeo,
    Dum discussio venerit atque ventura ira)

    Second verse dedicates to the real peeps
    What we got to say is so real thing ’cause
    Revolution ain’t never gonna televise
    Kicking the mad flow, microphone phenotype

    Open your third eye, seeing through the overground
    I’m about to hit you with a scream from underground
    Whole city’s covered with a cyber flavor
    “G” is in your area, one of the toughest enigma

    (Dies illa, dies iræ,
    Calamitatis et miseriæ)
