GURREN LAGANN THE MOVIE -CHILDHOOD’S END- (劇場版 天元突破グレンラガン 紅蓮篇, Gekijooban Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann Gurren-Hen, 2008)
This is the story of a man who has yet to realize what destiny holds in store for him…
Far in the future, humans live underground quietly and restlessly for hundreds of years, suffering from frequent earthquakes. In Giha Village, one of such underground communities, there are two young men. One is called Simon who is shy and naïve, the other is called Kamina who believes in existence of a “surface” world above their heads. Destiny of the two starts moving drastically when the ceiling falls, and a gigantic “Gunmen” and a beautiful girl Yoko with a superconductive rifle come from the surface.
Kamina, Simon and Yoko get on “Lagann” that Simon digs out from the ground, and jump out to the surface! However, the surface is not such a dreamland as Kamina imagined. The world is reined by the Spiral King and his army. Kamina and Simon, along with their comrades challenge the Spiral King to change the desperate world to the one with hope for the future by Gurren Lagann!
GURREN LAGANN THE MOVIE -THE LIGHTS IN THE SKY ARE STARS- (劇場版 天元突破グレンラガン 螺巌篇, Gekijooban Tengen Toppa Guren Lagann Lagann-Hen, 2009)
Valiantly persevering through the traumatic aftermath of Kamina’s death, Team Dai-Gurren collectively destroys the Four Generals and finally reaches Teppelin, the royal capital, where Simon wins a fierce battle against the Spiral King, Lordgenome. Seven years have passed after the battle of Teppelin…
Humans have since reclaimed the surface of the earth and enjoy an unprecedented period of peace and prosperity. However, humanity’s increasing population growth triggers the sudden emergence of an unknown, powerful enemy. The fearsome, manipulative power of the mysterious Anti-Spiral proves too overwhelming for humans to even fight back. When everyone becomes desperate and loses hope, Team Dai-Gurren members reunite to stand up once again!
