Not even sure what to say about this one really, it slid in pretty hard from far left field. What I want to say personally is something along the lines of, ” Can you believe it? Can you believe it? I have no idea what this is about, but I’m excited anyway.” However, the semi-professional in me deigns a more appropriate approach, so here we go.
The official Twitter account of the well known Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann anime recently posted this sneaky little link:
— 天元突破グレンラガン公式 (@Gurren_Project) December 21, 2015
When followed, said link leads to a familiar, yet all too mysterious website showing the skull and glasses insignia of Team Gurren, the boisterous heroes of the anime in question. With little more than “Coming Soon…” written beneath, many are abuzz pondering just what this announcement could be about. The leading theories revolve around the “ps” located in the website’s address, and what it could possibly stand for. Some believe it is a sign for an upcoming PlayStation game, others think the letters stand for post-script, lending to the idea of an epilogue of sorts. The less whimsical fanbase notes Konami’s name on the site and, given the companies recent declarations, believe a Pachinko machine is on the horizon.
So what do you think? Personally I would enjoy a new animated featurette, because Gurren Lagann is an awesome series. That being said, the original series still firmly exists and whatever this announcement may pertain to won’t change that fact. So, I shall remain hopeful but hesitant, which is pretty much part and parcel to seeking news. Regardless, may the interim between now and the announcement proper be filled with whimsy and wishful thinking. The best case scenario may just happen. I think I remember some anime character saying something about doing the impossible after all…
