    With Gurren Lagann airing in America, this was inevitable. So, this is just a board for the discussion of the show's run on Sci-Fi channel.

    It was awesome. Sure, there were a few scene missing from there due to the commercials, but it was still great.

    It's excellent. Unfortunately, there's cuts for time, and the commericials cut in at irritating points, but I'm extremely satisfied. Too bad the dvds won't arrive until next year.

    Anyways, soon the fanboys will flock message boards across to the internet to complain about Kamina's voice. To them, I say: shove it. His voice is excellent, fitting, albeit different from his original, and he can act well. I couldn't be more satisfied.

    As for the other voices, Simon's is perfect. Yoko's is perfect-er. Ron's is Perfect-est.

    My only complaint is the use of 'Team Gurren" as opposed to 'Gurren Brigade' but I expected that, because it's what they used on the sub Dvds.

    I liked it a lot, it looks like it would become really action packed even more, sooner or later...but I want to know, how much did you gave it (the average scores in the episode guide list is really pissing me of, since it's really low)?

    Due to the small number of posts here, maybe this discussion should probably apply to the entire series instead of a couple episodes.

    And please, for anyone who has started watching this show with episode 4, it does not usually look like that.

    First time watching the series... saw some pictures of it awhile back... it's pretty good. Just don't have time to keep up.

    I haven't seen this show before, but I must say I love it. And I just love the action and humor and the recent episode [US aired ep] was so sad [won't spoil what happened].
    So kudos to Scifi for getting this series.

    Thank the heavens that 4Kids didn't dub it.

    But Kamina's voice in the dub isn't as manly in the original dub.
