Gainax's robot anime to premiere on August 16 at 2 a.m.

Adult Swim, the American television network paired with Cartoon Network, announced on Saturday that it will run the robot anime Gurren Lagann in its Toonami programming block. Toonami will begin running the series on August 16 at 2:00 a.m. ET/PT.

The anime studio Gainax premiered the Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann television anime in Japan in 2007. The Gurren Lagann the Movie –Childhood's End- compilation film debuted in Japan in 2008, and its sequel film Gurren Lagann the Movie – The Lights in the Sky Are Stars premiered in 2009. Aniplex USA released the Japanese Blu-ray Disc box set that includes the series and both films in North America last year.

The series has also inspired two Gurren Lagann Parallel Works original video anime, various manga adaptations and spinoffs, and most recently, a stage play.
