Gurren Lagann Parallel Works 2 Trailer Doesn’t Quite Pierce the Heavens

Posted on: April 8, 2010

You know, as much as I enjoyed the movies, I can’t get excited about this trailer for the latest Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann music video collection. Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann Parallel Works was nifty and all, but at this point, I want someone to wake me up when Gainax decides to make something new. 5250 yen for 7 music videos, no matter how nifty they are, feels like franchise milking of the worst sort, the kind that leads to ten years of Evangelion rereleases and miscellaneous pieces of merchandise for a series instead of spending all that effort to create something new.

Maybe I’m wrong, and they’re just using the money from these releases to pay for their next big hit. I really hope that’s the case.
