OMFGYOUGUYS. If you haven't seen this series, or you've picked up the beginning of it and gone "Oh hell, this is totally not something I can get into" like I did (hahah, but I kept watching because I am bored stiff cool like that), then for heaven's sake go and watch it. And I mean stick out all of the tomfoolery at the beginning, because the set up is half of what makes the rest of the series so poignant and beautiful. Shit. I can't say more without spoilering, and if you have watched it, you'll understand all of my glee much better than I can ever explain it. God.

GO AND WATCH IT NOW DAMN IT. YOU WON'T REGRET IT. OKAY, SO YOU MIGHT FOR LIKE FOUR EPISODES, IF YOU DON'T ADAPT WELL TO WEIRD MINI-MECHA...BUT IF YOU DON'T STICK IT OUT, I WILL BE MISERABLE IN YOUR GENERAL DIRECTION.

Spoilers under the cut (for Bleach and for TTGL, and actually, for Weiss Kreuz: Gluhen too.)

So I should be asleep, but I just finished Tengen Topper Gurren Lagann and I have to say something to someone about it before I explode. And also OMG the anime made me cry and I haven't cried at anime...ah...since I watched the last episode of Weiss Kreuz: Gluhen. (I think, tbh, that I will cry during Ulquiorra's final scene. Because it looks like it's going to be one of those kind of things...) Oh but...shit. Wow.

Okay, so I can't really fluently explain what I adore about this series. I tried to tell my sister earlier, but she just kept taking the piss out of the fact that there was a mecha called Rasengan, and that they were called Rasenjin, and I just wanted to throw something at her by the end of the conversation, which is not a productive argument. It certainly doesn't help me win.

But...episode eight really set all of the rest of it up so absolutely beautifully, don't you think? Kamina and Simon and Viral... The end, even in as much as I didn't like Nia, and everyone joining together and Boota. I can't even begin to explain it, you know. Also, I swear there have never been so many main characters killed within so few minutes of each other. Real tears. It was heartfelt and lovely and the political vibes were there, and humanity's survivalism and OMGVIRALANDHISALTERNATEDIMENSIONFAMILY. Do I need to say more?

I need slashy fic of this now -- Y!Gallery did not have anywhere near as much Viral art as I needed, and he is gorgeous. The whole of the ending leaves plenty to be explored and gah -- can has Death Row Sex, please? PRETTY PLEASE?! And quite possibly some smut with Viral/Simon or Kamina/Simon and him wearing that fucking collar over the open shirt because jkfjdkjhfjkdjhfhjsgfl! Doesn't anyone love me enough to do that?!

I think I'm done now... Thoughts of slashiness have erased my tears. *smirk*
