I have been looking forward to seeing more of Gurren Lagann. It’s got an interesting storyline … anything is better than another high school ecchi anime remake. But … there is a sexy girl character and an innocent young boy, so all is not too far away from good tried and true anime style.
In a faraway future, mankind lives underground in huge caves, unknowing of a world above with a sky and stars.
In the small village of Jiha, Simon, a shy boy who works as a digger discovers a strange glowing object during excavation. The enterprising Kamina, a young man with a pair of rakish sunglasses and the passion of a fiery sun, befriends Simon and forms a small band of brothers, the Gurren Brigade, to escape the village and break through the ceiling of the cave to reach the surface, which few believe exist.
The village elder won’t hear of such foolishness and punishes the Brigade. However, when disaster strikes from the world above and the entire village is in jeopardy, it’s up to Simon, Kamina, a girl with a big gun named Yoko, and the small yet sturdy robot, Lagann, to save the day.
The new friends journey to the world above and find that the surface is a harsh battlefield, and it’s up to them to fight back against the rampaging Beastmen to turn the tide in the humans’ favor! Pierce the heavens, Gurren Lagann!
