Not counting the compilation episode of course.

Not many people seem to notice this or care, but Gurren Lagann had quite a specific style of episode titling.

First off, it shares the same format with After War Gundam X, another mecha show, where the title of the episode is actually a line a specific character says within the episode at some point. Personally I can't imagine GL getting it from any other source if not this fellow mecha show that used it before.

But the difference is that it's 4 characters that each get a particular line of theirs put up as the episode title for a specific number of episodes, namely Kamina (1-8), Nia (9-15), Rossiu (17-22), and Simon (23-27).
Each font you see in the pic is the font representing their character that was used for all the episodes that their lines were used. Rossiu's is the easiest to read though.

The naming order is also alphabetical, KNRS :p

BTW, do you notice how Kamina's font looks like a frenzied wood carving of sorts while Simon's font is that of a painting?

Not to be off topic- but why are you taking credit for him, you getter shitposter?

>>16284308
Because I'm the OP and thus the one who compiled those images as well as the images comparing Gurren Lagann to other mecha, numbskull.
>>
>>16284308
In short, read the spoiler in the OP.
>>
Oh, and the changing of fonts also had to do with who was taking charge of the narrative around that time.
From there we can figure out how the progression from one character to the other went.
Kamina’s death, Nia restoring Simon’s self-confidence, Rossiu bowing out, & Simon finally taking charge of it all.

BTW >>16284308 if I’ve managed to rustle your jimmies so much that you have to follow me around every thread I post in, then you may want to hightail it back to /a/.

Just noticed this got an English translation

Been planning on a grunt run. Any rule suggestions? Probably going with no gundams other than Master Units (or squad leaders?), and evolve/capture only, no buying/exchanging. As for the crew, picking only non-protag characters for masters and torn between OGs or a few custom made ones for the rest. Any suggestions for ships or ideas for other rules?

Well we have Insect Armageddon and 2025's update as 4.1 on Steam, hopefully 5.1 will come out and then PS4fags will get to enjoy Iron Rain in the meanwhile.

Also have you seen the new Ranger in IR? He looks like he's wearing some kind of composite power armor.

or /krr/ : Keroro X.

Happy (far belated) new year.

In December, it was revealed that a new Keroro anime-related *something* is on the way, unveiled alongside a new Keroro Robo, with more details to come in the future.

Kemono Friends-wise, Tatsuki remains offed from the project for good, despite the actions of international fandom and those in power on his side at Kadokawa, such as producer Fukuhara, leaving the fate of the franchise in purgatory, and throwing a wrench in the momentum built up last year. There have been some rumors that Season 2 of the anime was handed to Sunrise, though.

All-purpose Pastebin:

Chapter 267, translated, coming in a bit.

There's an episode where he goes crazy after Mois accidentally kisses Keroro and attempts to forcefully kiss him, but ends up kissing the other platoon members (and leaving them unconscious afterwards) without reaching Keroro.

The closest he ever actually gets to him is one episode where he switches bodies with Fuyuki, but the one he thought was "Keroro" was actually Momoka in Keroro's body.

In the manga, his crush on Keroro is actually mostly dropped after a certain point. There's one chapter where he's disappointed with him and thinking that everything he had thought and heard about him must have been wrong... and that seems to mostly stick. Afterwards, his crush barely ever comes up. The anime pretty much ignored that though. They adapt that story but just go ahead and keep his original character afterwards, even including new scenes where he's angry at Mois or plotting to get Keroro in their last few manga adaptations.

The last season of the anime even kind of shows Tamama to be gay in general with a scene where he thinks about Fuyuki in leather underpants.

omega supreme is more powerful than sazabi or char counter attack gundams. those are just mobile suits with some mystery magic powers to push a rock.
