Gurren Lagann Music Clip Project's Trailer Streamed
posted on by Egan Loo
The official Japanese website for the Gurren Lagann Music Clip Project has opened with an introductory trailer. (The trailer requires recent versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system and Windows Media Player.) This project pairs new anime footage with background music from the original soundtrack of the Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann television series. The creators are making a conscious effort of not following the continuity of the television series, and are instead creating "parallel works." The clips will be posted one-by-one starting this June.
The music clips, which were first previewed at Tokyo International Anime Fair 2008 in March, are separate from this September's Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann: Guren-hen theatrical movie project. Animation director Akira Amemiya, storyboarder Shin Itagaki, key animator Hirokazu Kojima, illustrator SUEZEN, planner Hiroyuki Yamaga, mechanical designer Yoh Yoshinari, and key animator Keisuke Watanabe will each oversee one song's music video for the project. Bandai Entertainment is releasing the original television series in North America in box sets starting this July.
