Gurren Lagann Announced for Toonami

Gurren Lagann | Saru Anime

Believe in the Toonami that believes in you! Or, uh, something.

Anyway, good news for Toonami fans: Gurren Lagann will be airing on the block starting August 16th at 2 AM. The reveal was made via a Tumblr Q&A video and was slipped between news of DBZ Kai Uncut making its debut this Fall and a little letdown for Gundam Wing fans. SARA breaks the news gently: “We love Gundam Wing, but we can’t air it right now.”

Though Gurren Lagann isn’t the newest series on the market, it’ll make a great addition to Toonami’s lineup. It’s action-packed, wonderfully animated, and has a story and cast that will have newcomers hooked. I’m definitely willing to rewatch the series as it airs.
