Anime Limited release the classic TV series Gurren Lagann

Glasgow, UK 24 June, 2013 - Anime Limited, the Glasgow-based anime licensing company and parent company of All the Anime, is excited to announce the release of the classic anime TV series Gurren Lagann on DVD and Blu-ray for the UK.

Anime Limited focuses on bringing a fresh approach to classic works in new formats as well as introducing new Japanese animated cinema offerings to the UK. Anime Limited's passion includes introducing high quality packaged releases as well as finding new ways of reaching fans and bringing anime to a wider audience.

In his skyless cavern of a village Simon toils daily, drilling holes to expand his stifling little world, until one day he makes an extraordinary discovery: a small glowing drill-bit and the man-sized mecha it activates. Before he can give it a second thought Simon's dragged into a plot to break through to the surface by the local gang leader Kamina, only to have the ceiling come crashing down on top of them under the weight of a giant monster! It somehow falls onto the boisterous Kamina and cowardly Simon to defend their village, but once they defeat the monster, what awaits the duo on the surface world?

Critically acclaimed and much loved by anime fans, Gurren Lagann is a triumph of storytelling. It is frequently listed as one of the seminal series of the last decade with top ratings by IGN (9.7 out of 10) describing it as "a great tale of the indomitable spirit of determined people", Anime New Network (an A rating), UK Anime Network (8 out of 10) and THEM reviewer Tim Jones describing it as "chuck full of action, comedy, drama, adventure and sci-fi elements, managing to even entertain a person who couldn't care less about mecha in the process."

Anime Limited's president Andrew Partridge says: 'Gurren Lagann marks an exciting addition to our growing catalogue. We're very excited to bring this to anime fans in the UK'.

Gurren Lagann will be available in the autumn in one complete DVD collection. It will have two Blu-ray sets with release to be confirmed shortly when pre-orders go live.
