I’m surprised it’s not being hyped much, but Gainax is gonna release a series of music videos, set to a track from the TTGL soundtrack, with all the characters of Gurren Lagaan set in to a parallel world. The first one’s out it seems and it can be watched here.
Starting the series off with the perfect track, 「Rap is a Man’s Soul! (Dai-Gurren-Dan Theme)」, this music video has the TTGL cast in a medieval setting, with Simon, Kamina and Viral playing as knights out to rescue poor damsel-in-distress Nia from the hands of the Spiral King. Yoko makes her appearance as one of the guards of the castle.
Pretty awesome as music videos go, and as a plus, we get to see adult Simon side-by-side with Kamina himself.
Now it won’t be long ’till we see official parallel TTGL works ala NGE: Angelic Days and etc. etc. Ahh~ Gainax, you guys are awesome milkers of the cash cow herd that you’ve raised.
