The Gurren Lagann manga that I'm the most excited about right now is not the one currently being held in my hands. I really, really want Bandai to pick up the license to Gurren Gakuen Hen , or "Gurren High School Version," in which all of the characters from the famed anime appear as high school characters together. Kind of like the Shinji Ikari Raising Project, but probably sillier.
But we don't have that one yet, so in the meantime, let's make do with the manga adaptation of the anime, by Kotaru Mori.
All in all I thought I get the sense that it's true to the tone, and that they MAY make some interesting changes later. So far, though, it's faithful to the anime, to the degree that those who've watched the anime might not want to bother. It could be an easily-accessible entrance into the franchise for a newbie, though, if any of you haven't picked it up yet. Still, the anime is definitely superior.
How about you guys? Any of you checked this out yet, or planning to? Why or why not?
