I Can Has Simon and Kamina For My Birthday?

I'm buying myself a birthday present~~

You've seen those sexy photobooks featuring Gurren Lagann's Yoko and Nia before, I'm sure. Now SaiAni reports that a similar book featuring heroes Simon and Kamina is due out-- on April 22 2009, which happens to be the quarter-of-a-century birthday of yours truly.


The book will feature the boys in schoolboy attire, as butlers, as prince-style hosts, and a variety of other scenarios and costumes. If I'm reading this right, there'll be eight sort of pinup-style images, a collection of Gurren-dan team tryout images, and Simon and Kamina's tale as a memories album as well.


All of the art is being created by Atsushi Nishigori, Gurren Lagann's character designer, specifically for this book. Which I totally, totally want.
