The first Gurren Lagann Parallel Works video, which you can see at left, is out. For those of you who haven’t heard about this, various members of GAINAX‘s staff are pairing Gurren Lagann music with new, alternate world animations. This first one is animator Watanabe Keisuke’s, and it combines the song Rap wa Kan no Tamashii da! with a fantasy setting. In it, Simon, Kamina, and Viral are attacking a fortress to free Nia, and they run into Yoko and the woman who was in Viral’s dream sequence from episode 26. It’s a lot of fun to watch, and it’s rekindled my memories of how much I liked the Gurren Lagann OST (i.e. I’ve got it on my playlist now). The next one video is set to be released June 23rd. Thanks konart
In more Macross Frontier news, it was announced yesterday on the staff blog that there is a special short movie in store for purchasers of the first volume BD/DVD. It’s called ALL THAT VF and will feature many of the Valkyries from the Macross series in commemoration of its 25th anniversary. The first volume is set to be released on July 25th.
Despite that video using the Gurren Lagann characters, it didn’t actually remind me much of the show. Still, a fun watch.
Wow, that Gurren Lagann video was amazing. Thanks for finding it for us.
Man, this video just reminded of how awesome Gurren Lagann was. Good video.
wow this took me back to the series boy it was great ^^ this video was fun too, still love the song. cant wait for the next one.
I- I want rewatch Gurren Lagann (again) now… DX
That video is awesome. I can’t wait to see more, I might have to fire up the series again.
Gurren Lagann!!!! woot!!
Awesome. Gotta listen to the OST again. 😛
Shows me that I’m still for the Kamina x Yoko pairing instead of the Kittan x Yoko. Niceeee
That make me yurn for some more Tengen Toppa, even if it is just a remake in a different, parallel universe (hey, it worked for Mai Hime).
And away I go to watch the greatest scenes from TTGL . . . again!
Awesome Gurren Lagann video. I saw it earlier today, and was pleasantly surprised at how cool it was.
About ALL THAT VF.. Will it be completely new footage? That’d be really awesome, considering how huge of a fan I am of the Valkyrie designs. Especially their fighter modes.
KAMINA :O and Yoko. It just made me miss them more. Thanks!! So why did they make this AU video again? I would really be stumped if they turn this idea into a TV series lolz I wish.
love the video! love kamina and yoko. 😀
Viral’s girl needed far more airtime.
Isn’t there a Gurren Lagenn Movie coming out as well? and there are supposed to be like eight Music videos in all before the Movie comes out….
I love the Gurren Lagann video. Awesome stuff.
That video was awesome, and that was my favorite song from that anime. Cool find.
I didn’t watch Gurren Lagann but the video looks cool. 🙂
is the ranka lee live concert out on the internet for us to see already?
Gurren Fantasy. 🙂
Gurren Lagann video is awesome. 😀
Viral’s sweetheart looks pretty cute. As for the video, it would be awesome if they made it into a series, or at least an OVA. Gurren-Lagann has always been an awesome anime, I hope to see more of it.
For the people who wants to watch the BGM trailer, here’s the site: http://www.gurren-lagann-movie.net/gurrepala/flash.html
It looks great, and it seems to me like each of the 8 pieces were made by a special and differentperson…
Gurren Lagann own all!
So cute! I love Viral’s girl; I just wish we had seen more of her in the actual show. The ending with Nia was adorable, too! I can’t wait to see the rest of these specials.
Nina <3 :'(
thanks for posting the gurren lagann video!! 😀
now that…was EPIC : )
i had forgotten how much i missed this
thankyou for uploading!!
Ah, thanks for the sauce on the exact name of “Raw Raw Fight Da Powah”. ^^;
this makes me not want to wait for the r2 sub dvd’s and the dub tv version on scifi in july
Spiffy to the max!! thanks a plenty for sharing.
Man, that reminded me how special Gurren Lagann was. When you think the second best show this season is that train wreck, albeit very entertaining train wreck, known as Code Geass R2, it makes you really miss the really great shows.
I’m also glad Gainax isn’t trying to expand on the original story but rather doing the alternate universe treatment. If this were Sunrise, we’d be having a really tough time of “Gurren Lagann: Boota of the Universe” spin-off sequels right now. As it is, I hope the rest of the videos in this series continue like well done fanfics.
Why do Simon remind me of Ike from Fire Emblem in this video? >_>;;;
“I fight for my friends!!! <_<;;;”
That music video is really cool; a shame I couldn’t really enjoy at the fullest TTGL since I waiting too long to watch the series. Still, a very creative idea to keep in our minds the series for a long time (at least until the first movie comes out on September); time will tell.
Oh yeah, there wasn’t Macross Frontier last week…
I’ll check those photos later.
I dig the gurren lagann vid. *listens to ost again*
And that’s how TTGL *really* ended. :3
The Gurren video totally made my day.
Thank you, thank you!
the tears of manlyness gar they have returned T_T amazing video
