The worst has happened. My girlfriend, while looking for a gift for me, asked one of my friends what anime I like (She knows I like it, but she doesn't watch it herself). My friend told her “Gurren Lagann.” Well, she ended up Google searching it, and found pictures (hopefully clothed ones) of Yoko, or as she liked to call, “Busty Red-Head Girl."  Blinded by the underboob and hip-high boots, she even completely ignored all of the pictures of Kamina and his awesomeness.  If you want to read her whole response, go here.

So the next day at school, she brought it up (with her friends around of course.) Luckily the friend who told her did some damage control beforehand, so I didn't have to talk my way out too much. Despite my other friend butting in and almost making it worse (he brought up Elfen Lied, which he badly tried to describe from the two episodes he's seen) I was able to explain to her the significance of the fan-service girl in anime. However, I don't think I made any positive progress by saying to her “You're the only busty redhead for me.” Oops.
