This is the story of a man who has yet to realize what destiny holds in store for him...
In the distant future, mankind has lived quietly and restlessly underground for hundreds of years, subject to earthquakes and cave-ins. Living in one such village are two young men: Simon, who is shy and naive, and Kamina, who believes in the existence of a "surface" world above their heads.
The destiny of these two starts moving drastically when the ceiling of their village falls in and a gigantic "Gunmen" and a beautiful girl named Yoko, wielding a superconductive rifle, come from the surface. Together, Kamina, Simon, and Yoko ride the mecha "Lagann" that Simon digs out of the ground and fly up to the surface!

BEST LIMITED EDITION SET EVER!!!!
I was extremely satisfied with the product. I was going to originally buy the Anime Legends Gurren Lagann DVD set because it was a bit more cheap, but after reading some horrible reviews about it(mostly because the DVD's wouldn't work, they skipped around), I decided not to purchase it and went with this product instead.
The DVD'S in this product work 100%. There were a few times(1-2) were the DVD's would pause for half a second, but then they would resume again. Maybe it was just my dvd player, its a bit old.
This box set comes with everything you see in the description and overall, it is worth the $139 with FREE SHIPPING!
Great box set but might have faulty discs.
I bought this Aniplex USA set because I wanted to upgrade my Anime Legends set. The Bandai Entertainment discs were said to have been faulty, especially DVD 2. And it looks like this Aniplex USA set might have some of the same issues; DVD 2 on my Aniplex USA set has a bubble that does not let play episode 9 properly. If you are curious, the DVD menus on this Aniplex USA release are exactly the same as in the Bandai Entertainment Anime Legends set.
The packaging of this Aniplex USA set is very well done, and I would recommend it to all Gurren Lagann fans. Just be aware that it may have faulty DVD's.
For Aniplex standards this is cheap (not really)
by Parm -
If you know Aniplex they charge a arm and a leg for their series. This however i think is somewhat reasonable compared to everything else. For a 140 bucks you get all 27 episodes, soundtrack, poster, 32 art book, art cards, 2 stickers and a chipboard art box. If you look at their other series like Sword art online the dvd's cost 160 bucks for 1 season and they are just in basic cases with nothing else. If your a fan of the show I say buy this version over the blu rays unless you can afford 250 or are willing to dump the money for it. Beats any of the bandai sets released and since those are out of print buying this or the blu rays supports the industry. Overall its a great set and the series is enjoyable so its a purchase but its still gonna hit the wallet strong.
Build up to insanity
One of my favorite anime of all time. The show starts with the main characters underground and discovering a small mecha. Then as the series goes on the scale grow exponentially until it is ridiculous and awesome. It is action packed, funny in parts and has Gianax's brand crazy. If you can handle Aniplex's prices then it is a must buy.
Fantastic Series, Flawed DVDs
by THOMAS -
Gurren Lagann is a fantastic series. I first watched it through a streaming service, didn't like it at first, but eventually it grew on me to the point of love, and I decided to spring for this DVD box set, which has some great extras, including the soundtrack.
But if you buy this edition, be aware there are authoring problems. Two DVD discs in my box set had playback issues. RightStuff sent replacement discs, and the replacement discs had *the exact same* problems. So be aware that the following issues could be present:
1. "Play All" option: At 1:23:45, the video and sound skips for 3-4 seconds. This is around the beginning of Part B, Episode 18.
2. Extra menu: Around 1:15, the video and sound skips for 3-4 seconds. This is the Episode 16 Textless ED.
3. "Play All" option: At 1:26:51, the video and sound skips for 3-4 seconds. This is around the beginning of Part B, Episode 22.
My discs were defective as well
Just wanted to say that I have also had issues with the discs skipping in a few spots. Wanted to warn anyone thinking of buying this set.
UPDATE to "Fantastic Series, Flawed DVDs" Review, 4/4/2016
by THOMAS -
Back on 4/14/2016, I wrote a review that praised the Gurren Lagann series (it is a classic that you really need to watch), but reported that two of the DVDs in the set had authoring problems that caused problems on playback.
My Sony CD/DVD Player DVP-NC85H had problems playing back specific portions of episode 18 (disc 4), textless ending for episode 16 (disc 4), and episode 22 (disc 5). These problems occurred on the original discs and on the replacement discs RightStuf sent.
However, a friend recently suggested that I play the discs in a blu-ray player, which generally has superior error correction. So I placed disc 4 and then disc 5 in my Sony Blu-Ray Disc/DVD Player BDP-S480, and voila, no errors on playback. I tested both my original discs and my replacement discs.
So if you own this series, my advice would be to watch the discs using a blu-ray player.
