Raw, Raw, Fight the Power!

Some anime are stronger doing the “awesome” thing than doing the “that makes perfect sense and flows out of the preceding events in a clear and logical fashion” thing.

Here is the theme song from an anime called Gurren Lagann. I recommend it to anyone who likes big action that gets bigger and bigger. The show is about mining, quantum mechanics, true love, and breaking open the sky.

(A word of warning: I had frankly forgotten how tasteless the over-the-top boob humor, buttocks humor, and unfunny flaming drag-queen humor there was in the show. So, your mileage, as they say, may vary.)

My comment: Do the impossible! See the invisible!

Part of the lyrics for “Libera me” part :

Libera me, Domine, de morte aeterna in die illa tremenda;
quando coeli movendi sunt et terra:
dum veneris judicare saeclum per ignem.
Tremens factus sum ego et timeo, dum discussio venerit atque ventura irae, quando coeli movendi sunt et terra.

Which means:

Deliver me, O Lord, from eternal death on that awful day;
when the heavens and the earth shall be moved;
when you will come to judge the world by fire.
I tremble, and I fear the judgment and the wrath to come, when the heavens and the earth shall be moved.

Lest I be accused of shortchanging you, here is a version of the song with the operatic hymn not edited out:
