Time To Bust Out The Shovel
Updated: Feb 7
Good morning my loyal Painkillers, anime fans, and newbies to the site. Welcome to another edition of Anime Wednesday. Today, not only do I have a good anime for you, I have an award-winning anime for you today. Have you ever wanted to live in a city that is completely under the earth’s surface? Well, the people in this anime are, and it is not the best. Let’s get into it, here is Gurren Lagann.
The show takes place is the future. The earth is ruled by Lordgenome, the Spiral King. He has forced people to live in underground villages, that are isolated from the surface world, and other underground villages. The show follows a fourteen year boy named Simon. He is known as a digger. He is generally looked down on by his peers, because of his weak character. Simon spends most of his time following behind his older friend Kamina. One day Simon uncovers a small mecha known as a Gunmen. Eventually, Simon and Kamina discover what actually goes on the surface, and they try to stop it.
This show is truly amazing. This was another one of those shows that I went into, knowing nothing about it, and was completely blown away by how great this show is. The only bad thing about this show, well for me anyway, is that the show ended too quickly. It definitely left me wanted more, which you know for a fact is a good show. You have a a few options, if you want to watch Gurren Lagann. You can check it out on either Netflix, or on Hulu, so use which one you like better. That’s all for now, until next time everyone!
