  • Mon, 12:21: AWESOME, now we can read the whole first chapter for free! :D #GurrenLagann #OtokoIppikiHen
  • Mon, 12:23: Ahaha I can see Dai-Gurren's face in the school building, excellent.
  • Mon, 12:25: I love how Kamina is 'studying' slumped over his desk. Kind of adorable. XD
  • Mon, 12:29: Omg the other classmates are background characters like Leite's mechanics and people from Littner I'm loving this.
  • Tue, 01:45: Okay, I finally read the whole first chapter of the Otoko Ippiki manga...
  • Tue, 01:45: ...Predictably, I spend most of it fangirling Simon Hotta. :D;
  • Tue, 01:46: What we get is basically an expanded & dramatized version of how Simon & Kamina first meet up and bond.
  • Tue, 01:47: Things I find most interesting: Simon Hotta's characterization and his initial hostility with Kamina.
  • Tue, 01:51: At this point in the drama CD, Simon does come off as rather gloomy and warns Kamina not to destroy school property.
  • Tue, 01:52: In the manga, Kamina already has a history of destroying school property (99 times!), so Simon is understandably pissed off. XD
  • Tue, 02:04: ...To the point of threatening Kamina with expulsion and accusing him of creating situations where he could play the hero. o_o
  • Tue, 02:07: Main differences in characterization with the original Simon: Hotta is already pretty confident in his abilities & can be rather snarky.
  • Tue, 02:09: At his worst, comes off as creepy and cynical. At his best, he's already a badass.
  • Tue, 02:10: Also, he usually uses "boku" but switches to "ore" when he gets fired up omg that's adorable.
  • Tue, 02:12: O...omg, is that...are those sculptures in the corner of that room? Nia sculptures?? WAS SIMON MAKING NIA SCULPTURES IN THERE OMFG.
  • Tue, 02:15: Nakashima never bothered with shipping in the drama CDs aside from some hinting in Otokogumi, but I know Nono is a fan, so...HERE'S HOPING.
  • Tue, 02:17: But seriously omfg if those are really Nia sculptures...imagine him sitting in there alone...carving Nia statues........
  • Tue, 02:24: Remember how Simon obsessively made Kamina statues in his room? Yeah. I'm sensing some pent-up longing and loneliness here.
  • Tue, 02:27: Cuz at this point the Simon & Nia relationship has more of a Master/Servant vibe than anything. And I doubt Simon has any other friends.
  • Tue, 02:29: But yeah, he lightened up considerably in the drama CD once Kamina adopted him as his little brother figure and they started hanging out. :)
  • Tue, 02:33: Even when Kamina is the protagonist, all I ever talk about is Simon. Go figure.
