A spiral drill key...

So I watched all of the anime Gurren Lagann last night. Interesting universe it's written in where ultimately the spiritual strength of the person in question can overcome any physical limitation in both themselves and the physical world around them. The ultimate "heart over matter" universe.

It was an interesting story as well. The first half is kind of the kiddie adventure thing where a group travels together to defeat a great evil. Somewhere a little over halfway it transforms into a serious story with a number of different threads. (It also jumps 7 years ahead to do so.) Well written and for the most part well animated. Though if you watch it on Netflix episode 8 has episode 9 in it's place. (Or is it 9 and 10?) I had to watch that episode elsewhere. And again it's dubbed with a lot of the common voice actors who do this stuff. (The one princess is voiced by the same actress that did Starfire in Teen Titans.)

Not getting a lot done today (some laundry, dishes) but I really do have a lot of cleaning to do. I'm tired but it's my own damn fault - I finished watching Gurren Lagann at almost 2 a.m. this morning.
