Break through Heaven, Gurren Lagann!

This is the tale of men whose destiny is to fight without end. The tale of a man who has yet to realize his destiny.

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann takes place in a fictional far future where human beings have been forced underground and thrive in isolated subterranean civilizations. These "villages" have no contact with the surface world nor other villages. Since frequent earthquakes damage infrastructure, the villages must constantly expand deeper into the earth — individuals designated to this task are known as "diggers".

Jiiha Village is the home of Simon, a fourteen year old digger who was orphaned when his parents were killed in an earthquake. He is respected by the village elder as the best of the diggers, but is ostracized by his peers. After discovering a special drill key deep in the ground, he is recruited by an eccentric fellow orphan named Kamina into his group, the "Gurren Brigade". Kamina dreams of the surface world, which he visited as a child with his father but had to return home because he was too weak to survive.

After a failed attempt at reaching the surface, Kamina is jailed by the elder and Simon resumes digging, only to discover "a big face" deep in his tunnel. As he excitedly fetches Kamina to show him the discovery, he is caught by the village elder, but Kamina's punishment is interrupted by the ceiling of Jiiha Village collapsing as an enormous robot falls into the cavern. A girl named Yoko appears and tries to fight the robot with a large rifle, but initially cannot do much. Simon takes Kamina and Yoko to the "big face" he found earlier and discovers that the small drill key can be used to activate the small robot which he uses to end up destroying the much larger robot and effectively break through to the surface.

Gurren-Lagann is a badass new series from GAINAX, who you may have seen in other shows such as Neon Genesis Evangelion or FLCL.

    If we are going to have lots of anime discussion, I think it would be nice to have a seperate anime forum.

    okay you first

    you can take the first warning and then I'll get banned because I didn't listen to the warning

    then forumers point out the hypocrisy and uprising ensues

    Soon, none are left standing

    It takes a bit to get used to it, Simian Explosive.

    But they're so worth it in the long run. Espeically if you get the kind that you can leave in overnight for up to 30 days.
