Recap / Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann Episode 6 - "Sit in the Hot Tub 'Till You're Sick!!"

Go To

Team Gurren's search for the Beastmen's home base leads them to a resort complete with hot springs where they are reunited with Kiyoh, Kinon and Kiyal (their brother Kittan is elsewhere.). The resort turns out to be a beastman trap, but Simon and Kamina, with some help,manage to form Gurren Lagann to defeat the Beastmen.

Victory is short-lived, as they are attacked by Viral.


Tropes in this episode:

  • Damsel out of Distress: Yoko, Darry, Kiyoh, Kinon and Kiyal had been placed in a cage, but Yoko manages to shoot away at their cage so they can escape and beat up their captors.
  • Killer Rabbit: Quite literally, the spa girls are rabbit beastmen.
  • Hot Springs Episode: Unfortunately for Team Gurren, it was a trap.
  • Naked People Are Funny: Kamina with Boota hanging onto his crotch, for starters.
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: So apparently beastmen can take human form as showcased here with the spa staff (and quite literally with head of the spa who turns out to be a wolf). Oddly, this is never really brought up again.
  • Recap Episode: What the edited broadcast version became.
