About 

This is the story of a man who has yet to realize what destiny holds in store for him….

In the distant future, mankind has lived restlessly underground for hundreds of years, subject to earthquakes and cave-ins. Living in one such village are two young men: one named Simon who is shy and naïve, and the other named Kamina who believes in the existence of a “surface” world above their heads. The destiny of these two starts moving drastically when the ceiling of their village falls in, and a gigantic “Gunmen” and a beautiful girl named Yoko, wielding a superconductive rifle, come from the surface. Together, Kamina, Simon and Yoko ride the mecha “Lagann” that Simon digs out of the ground, and fly up to the surface!

Gurren Lagann, an original story by GAINAX and Kazuki Nakashima (KILL la KILL), was first aired in 2007 and was a joint project by GAINAX, Aniplex and KONAMI. Director and longtime mecha fan Hiroyuki Imaishi (KILL la KILL) was signed on with character designer Atsushi Nishigori (KILL la KILL, Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic) to deliver a mecha series that broke through the rules of anime and storytelling. The background score features noted composer Taku Iwasaki (The irregular at magic high school, R.O.D -THE TV-) and the opening theme “Sorairo Days” was provided by celebrity idol Shoko Nakagawa, a.k.a “Shokotan.”
