I don't even what?

Not that I'm against it or anything, but what?

GOD DAMMIT, if only I could remember that final speech by Adult!Simon to the Anti-Spiral to make a Baseball-parody of it.

I dunno, but I believe "WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK WE ARE?!" works equally for baseball or gigantic space robots

So a baseball series that is more hot-headed than Diamond no Ace?


Sounds fun.

If they're not using galaxies as baseballs I will be immensely saddened.

Hell, just go all the way and have them play ball in their Ganmen, that would be hilariously awesome.

Oh wow, this should be fun to read. Would be even more awesome if they adapted it into an OVA. I'm a big fan of TTGL so nice to see anything new from the franchise~

My thoughts exactly,
Kamina slowly steps up to the plate then he readies his bat by pointing it at the sky JUST WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK I AM!

Please Gainax, don't turn Gurren Lagann into the overmarketed, derivative drivel you turned Evangelion into.

I love Gurren Lagann. I wouldn't mind more merchandise. I am terrified that this is the beginning of the cycle of never-ending rehashes and reimaginings that ends with SD CGI series about Yoko going to school and Caveman Kamina figures to match the ones of Asuka Langley Soryu.

Oh, somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright;
The band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light,
And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout;
But there is no joy in Gihaville - mighty Kamina has struck out!

Gurren Lagann never came off as a serious work in the first place, it was always about having fun. Spinoffs like these are fine
