  • Thu, 17:24: Gonna see the live action Attack on Titan movie tonight & I'm going all-out nerd, wearing both Ninja Slayer shirt & Attack on Titan hoodie.
  • Thu, 17:26: But hey, at least I won't be wearing the cape to the theater!!
  • Thu, 17:28: Now if I were to wear the cape AND use the Ninja Slayer shirt to dress up as a ninja, that would be a truly dangerous level of nerd.
  • Thu, 18:01: I'm not trying to deny that Gurren Lagann aired in a timeslot for kids, or that it was written with that audience in mind after a point.
  • Thu, 18:02: It's just that the creators themselves say they didn't know what timeslot it would be in for a long time. https://t.co/nCZeSx2i7x
  • Thu, 18:04: So they wrote it for an older audience, cause if they played it safe & made something overly tame, and it then aired in a later timeslot...
  • Thu, 18:05: ...then they "wouldn't be able to watch it." (Imaishi's words)
  • Thu, 18:07: They felt Gainax's reputation was at stake. Nakashima was the mature adult who said "Kids will be watching too!" lol
  • Thu, 18:18: Of course, the result of all this is they felt Gurren Lagann was too "serious" and went on to make Panty & Stocking next, lol.
  • Thu, 18:32: RT @Umekopyon: best. https://t.co/u0nw7uKzH3
