Gurren Lagann Parallel Works 2 Announced, Coming in May

Do want, to the extreme!



Gainax loves me,
This I know,
Because the internet tells me so.

 
Gurren Lagann: Parallel Works, was a series of animated music videos, pairing brand new animation with the existing soundtrack from the series. Of course, to sweeten the deal, there is an underlying theme of parallel universes... which I love.
 
  
The first set involved such videos as one set in a very traditional looking fantasy setting, while another took place in a world where the Gunmen transform into giant pinball machines. These themes will carry over the recently announced Parallel Works 2: Project Encore, and I couldn't be more excited. These fun endeavors really help illustrate Gainax's devotion to their IPs, and have found a way to make quality merchandise that doesn't compromise the integrity of its source material.
 
Expect Parallel Works 2 to land May 26.

God, yes. I would even watch a full fantasy Gurren Lagann show. These little clips are so much fun. Now if I can get Gainax to do a new original series to do go along with it...

There are only two words in the English language which can be used to describe this announcement:
 
                                                                      
EPIC WIN

That's a good way too keep making money without pimping out the franchise. Gainax has learned the lesson after those weird manga spin offs of Eva.

Awesome~ !!
 
My favorite still has to be the first one though~...I really wouldn't mind seeing the Gurren Lagann characters in that kind of setting.

What, more Parallel Works. This is indeed great news.

OH!  When I read the title, i thought "Gurren Lagann 2?!!!111"... but then I read that it was about animated music videos  :(

Truth be told, that one's my favorite. Its pretty hilarious. 
 
@Kelleth:
I "Guess" those are cool too. Its amusing to see evil Kamina, and his submissive wife Simon.

I like the spin offs...the Shinji Ikari Raising Project more than Angelic Days.

Angelic Days didn't bother me too much. Though I do have to admit that the most brilliant off shoot I ever read on Evangelion was a doujinshi. It was like, forever long, and really very interesting.
