Remember Gurren Lagan? Well in honor of the 10th anniversary of the awesome anime series, Aniplex of America is planning a special event at Otakon in D.C. this month. The event will feature the voiceover talent from the English language dub of the show as well as a special gift box set re-release of the series. Aniplex of America sent out a survey earlier this year asking fans what their favorite GL scenes and episodes were and compiled that info to come up with the best episodes/scenes to screen at the event. Also, Aniplex of America will also be releasing a complete Blu-ray Disc Box of Gurren Lagan available on August 8th, which includes all 27 episodes of the TV series and both feature length movies –Childhood’s End- and –The Lights in the Sky Are Stars.
For those of you who don’t already know, Otakon is an annual convention held at the Washington Convention Center in Washington DC to celebrate all things Asian pop culture. Anime, manga, music, video games, cosplay everything! (And the Otaku Dance Rave is also one of the biggest convention dance parties around). So Aniplex America definitely chose the right venue to announce what looks like it’s going to be one of the biggest celebrations of the Gurren Lagan franchise ever!

If you’re interested in attending, check it out at Otakon on Saturday, August 12, 7:30pm @ Panel 7 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center Washington, DC.
