so this is just going to be a rehash with some new footage? disappointing. Sad i was hoping to get some additional closure on what happens to simon the wanderer. perhaps we would get to see the events that were unfolding at the very opening of the series? ah well...

So is this just going to be a truncated version of the story with limited new footage to patch it together like the Gunbuster 2 movie was then?

I think it's just a movie version of the beginning part until the part when spoiler[Kamina dies]. I'm still gonna watch it just because I love Kamina Cool

Gainax is really like the Electronic Arts of the anime world. They are just in it for the money and they don't care about anything else.

A truly detestable company.

Except that Gurren Lagann was a completely original project, that is amazing and hopefully doing very well everywhere, and that anime movies rehashing a tv series is not a gainax thing or even new whatsoever.

I'm not thrilled about the movie and it's impossible to say whether they are doing this for any other reasons than money(which, by the way, is the point of any business), but it's hard to damn the company right after TTGL, whether they try to milk it more or not, I don't really care.

lol? They make a lot of very original anime and just because they're adding a recap movie to one of their more successful projects doesn't make them more detestable than other companies. I think you forgot the existence of Studio Sunrise that's milking the Gundam franchise for already 30 (!) years Wink
If they were so fond of making money with their works they would just jump on that slice-of-life-school-girl-train instead of putting effort in innovative projects.

I am disappointed about it being a recap movie. I was looking forward to an original story but what can you do...

so its just end of gurren lagann then?

meh, I'll still be slavering over it like a hungry dog. Best series ever made, imo, and I dont care how much of a fanboy that makes me.

I don't know what you expected, I will be sure to see it.
And omg, Gainax makes money - they are not the charity, you know?^^

If any of you had bothered to look at the trailer on youtube, you'd know that there is a possibility that this will be more awesome than the show was.

All I'm saying is one name. Kamina.
