CIRNO WAS RIGHT!
Movie is the show through a completely different light! The OVA is indeed in production!
Oh Fuck YEAH
It will be shit, right?
Info from the movie:
-Not a recap
-Not a prequel
-Not a sequel
-Will "betray" our expectations, in a good way
-Will feature every big name in Gainax staff
-Will be announced at TAF
>Movie is the show through a completely different light!
They just heightened the contrast?
Simon marries Yoko in the movie, and Kamina is cloned.
So..movie is a spinoff?
Lord Genome's son is the villain.
It's "Gurren-Lagann" but not "Gurren-Lagann".
Spin-off? More ike Spin-on!
Think "Do You Remember Love"
Since it's Imaishi we're talking about, I hope it's the kind of fast-paced crack he's best at doing.
Campus Lagann perhaps?
here's hoping for it to be based on the prologue, i was excited about it for the entire series ;_;
No at least 2/3 of the movie will be reused material from the TV.
It will be the same thing as the Rahxephon movie most likely, lots of reused material but it still manages to tell a new story.
Ba dum tsh.
Well, there is also a new, completely unrelated project, they'll announce at TAF.
>"With the movie, we want to betray everyone's expectations in a good way..."
>"In the OVA series, we're aiming to make everyone who loved the TV show feel fulfilled..."
>"They can't reveal the names of the staff participating in the OVA yet, but everyone will be impressed and really surprised after they do"
What if they put in Anno?
"Takeda says that they were thinking of making a movie from the time the TV series started airing. After it aired, people were saying they wanted to see more, and they had confidence that this work could be handed down for 10 years like Eva. But when he talked about it to Imaishi while the TV series was still going, he was told "No way!"
So what is the movie about? They were first thinking of making it a summary of the TV series, but don't intend to just rearrange it and end it like that. The theme is "revival." Becoming resolved, Imaishi said "I'll show something that is and is not Gurren Lagann!" and began writing great plans, but of course they were turned down. Although, they want to show everyone something very different from what they'd expect.
Also, currently they're in the middle of working on a completely new production different from the movie. They can't reveal the names of the participating staff yet, but he can say that they are distinguished members. They will screen a portion of this at the Tokyo International Anime Fair. "With the movie, we want to betray everyone's expectations in a good way. We'll reveal even more news at the Anime Fair, so please come watch."
It would be fun.
I smell Tang.
Even though I hate both Eva and End of Eva, I would LOVE tang for Gurren-Lagann. A Spiral Nemesis ending would be downright epic.
So was it better or worse?
Considering it's not canon, it would be pretty fun to watch that.
I SMELL BATSHIT INSANE GARLOCK TRYING TO REVIVE KAMINA AND NIA.
THE END OF GURREN LAGANN LOL
I wouldn't complain. End of Evangelion is fucking awesome.
YOu hate Evangelion but like Gurren Lagann go fuck yourself
I like Evangelion and love Gurren-Lagann.
If it makes you feel any better, I do kind of like the Eva mango.
New Gainax top image.
Her mile seems forced. She knows she's gonna bite it.
Make it happen. Fucking movie!
Nia sure has nice...flowers.
Final mook coming! The first edition includes the COMPLETE episode 27 storyboard by Imaishi.
>-Not a recap

>-Will "betray" our expectations, in a good way
So maybe a new story from the same time following the beastmen or another group of freedom fighters?

I guess this cow won't run out of milk for a long time.
Those guys in the ship ganmen who flew into a vortx of death until nia said not to?
Fuck yeah, Cows are love.
eh not bad for ms paint.
Maybe smarter ones than them...unless it's heavily focused on comedy.
"We are the Ritona Suicide Squad!"
"Suicide Squaaaaaaad... ATTACK!"
So, what you think will the OVA be about?
Probably an omnibus.
Translation from this: http://anime3.2ch.net/test/read.cgi/anime2/1204826566/
Movie may be:
-A completely Imaishi-styled retelling, complete with extreme animation and insane pacing.
-A Gurren-Lagann take that’s more focused on character relationships. A “girl’s” version, you may say.
-A very gritty, more aggressive and realistic re-visioning.
-Will be OVA format. May be kind of an omnibus, probably character-focused.
Cirno, where ar thou?!
The answer is obvious...
Could someone post all the speculation from 2ch please?
<---- needs to happen
FUCK YEAH GARHALLA!
Hey, GhostNia, was it you who said you'd left for a while to improve your writing skills, or something?
HOLY SHIT, THAT WOULD BE SO GAR.
fake until i see link
Yes. I failed to write anything, but I read a lot.
Well, I told you I'd say it, so welcome back. And, at least you did something. Glad to see you back.
That is going to be great. It makes me sad that I willl never have it.
So, your impressions on the announcement?
GLfag reporting in and being very excited.
I'm relieved that it's not a recap.
Imaishi is on drugs.
The info about the OVA seems to support my conclusion that it's going to be an anthology or sorts.
I'm happy about every little piece of information I get.
I want something SimonXNia in the OVA. ;_;
The Adventures of Hobo Simon. "Your drill is a drill that will pierce trough poverty!"
is there a date set for this book yet?
Screen from leaked movie on Japanese BBS:
Gurren-Lagann isn't over yet, fags.
ENJOY YOUR FUTILE TROLLING EFFORTS.
cue Evil Laugh, etc.
So is that Gurren and Lagann after they get married?
