Spiral Power — The Wisdom of Gurren Lagann
It was directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi , written by veteran playwright Kazuki Nakashima , and had been in development since the participation of the famed animator in the Abenobashi mecha -themed episodes by the same studio. Gurren Lagann takes place in a fictional future where Earth is ruled by the Spiral King, Lordgenome, who forces mankind to live in isolated subterranean villages. The plot focuses on two teenagers, Simon and Kamina, who live in a subterranean village and wish to go to the surface. Using a mecha known as Lagann, Simon and Kamina reach the surface and start fighting alongside other humans against Lordgenome's forces, before fighting the forces of their true enemy.

Upon being captured, it was revamped, now boasting the logo of Team Gurren and Kamina 's trademark glasses. After attacking Littner , the mech is captured, rebuilt, stylized by Leeron using salvaged parts from the three enemy Gunmen that were defeated in battle. Being of typical Gunmen proportions, Gurren is able to fight tremendously without connection to Simon via the Lagann. After Kamina's death, Gurren was mainly piloted by Rossiu and one-time pilot with Simon, Yoko, until the aftermath of the battle of Teppelin. Though it remained under Simon's control most of the time, it was briefly piloted by Kinon , until Viral became the Gurren's official pilot during the battle against the Anti-Spirals. While paired with Lagann , Gurren is able to, like the former, produce drills from virtually any part of its body, and use these drills to combine with other mechas such as Cytomander 's Gunman bombers and Arc-Gurren , the former combination giving Gurren the ability to fly from that point on. Gurren while combined with Lagann can also regenerate any damage it takes in battle, however once Lagann separates from it, the damage comes back as if it was never fixed at all.
