TENGEN TOPPA GURREN LAGANN by behindinfinity TENGEN TOPPA GURREN LAGANN by behindinfinity
Remember this well...

This drill rips holes through the fabric of the universe...

Those holes shall become the path of those who will follow us.

The wishes of the fallen and the hopes of everyone who follows - with those two thoughts, and twenty spirals weaved in, we will carve the path to tomorrow!

That is TENGEN TOPPA!
That is GURREN-LAGANN!


The above excerpt might sound like utter nonsense to those of you who haven't followed the series, but I am not ashamed to say that I sobbed uncontrollably during the final episode (...and yeah okay many many other parts) especially during that MANLY SPEECH THAT DRILLS THROUGH THE FABRIC OF THE UNIVERSE. Gurren Lagann is the first series that had me crying countless times not just because of saddening turns of events; other times, I cried because I was filled with overwhelming admiration and hope.

:bulletgreen: Revoltech No. 62: Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
:bulletblue: photographed by me :iconbehindinfinity:
:bulletwhite: background stock from :iconresurgere:

This photo was brought to you by my fangasming over my new toy. I got my Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann yesterday after months of waiting for it to be released. Gah, it's BEAUTIFUL. I was wondering how they'd manage to make a figure based on this :pointr: [link] but Revoltech pulled it off wonderfully! The flames look fantastic!

Some of you might be wondering about the color overload and choice of background. I based it off the setting for the final episode, THE DIMENSION OF CHEERFULLY COLORFUL GALAXIES :pointr: [link]

:bulletblack: Scrapped because I reviewed my photos and apparently took better shots. :doh: Oops, haha. Will replace this another time.

God, TTGL is absolutely the greatest anime to ever be released. It's just one of those things that makes you honored to even know you /know/ the series.

The Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann kicks so much ass. Best gunmen besides the King Kittan, in my opinion.

The show Gurren Lagann is by far the best anime show that I have ever seen so far... the show is full of sorrow, courage, pride, humor, and heroism.

I really gotta tip my hat off to ya man, GREAT JOB!!:salute:

I didn't cry.

But no matter how many times I hear those speeches. I will never forget how moved I was.

I will never forget to stop dreaming. To do the impossible. To see the invisible.

Man. Oh man. I was on the edge of my seat during that whole episode. It was just..... brilliantly amazing.

There were a few times I teared up, but (and I'm quite surprised at this) I didn't cry. I as just one bundle of excitement. Literally, I was like, rooting and cheering them on!! And I got chills when Simon said that speech.

Where did you get the figures by the way?
