posted on by Egan Loo
Gurren Lagann Parallel Works 2, an all-new collection of music videos set in parallel worlds to the Gurren Lagann anime franchise, will ship on DVD in Japan on May 26. The Gainax anime studio had announced in January that it was launching an "encore" to 2008's popular Gurren Lagann Parallel Works project.
In the first project, several staffers of the Gurren Lagann anime created eight spinoff shorts that explored the theme of "multiple universes" with background music from the television series. For Parallel Works 2, a different set of animators will use all-new background music and character songs.
The participating staffers are:
- Gekidan Inu Curry
- Akemi Hayashi
- Shouko Nishigaki
- Satoshi Yamaguchi
- Shouji Saeki & Shingo Abe
- Ayumu Kotake
The DVD's complete limited pressing will include a CD with the new music, as well as a booklet and a box.
Update: The Gurren Lagann movies' official website lists which videos the staff members are animating:
- Akemi Hayashi "The Sense of Wonder"
- Gekidan Inu Curry "Ore no XXX wa Uchū Hitotsu"
- Shouko Nishigaki "Sayonara Dai Gurren"
- Ayumu Kotake, Shintarou Douge "Big Building" (pictured at right)
- Satoshi Yamaguchi "Kiyal no Magical Time, Sanpun Mae" ("Kyal's Magical Time, Three Minutes Before")
- Shouji Saeki, Shingo Abe "Gunmen Symphonia"
- Sushio "Kitan Zero"
