* AdaptationalEarlyAppearance: The manga adaptation of ''Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann'' uses this trope. ** Nia is shown right after Kamina, Yoko, Leeron, and Simon leave Ritoona Village. There's also some Early-Bird ShipTease for Dayakka[=/=]Kiyoh and Rossiu[=/=]Kinon. ** In ''Gurren-Hen'', [[spoiler:Guinble]] makes an appearance just after [[spoiler:the destruction of the Doten-Kaizan. He looks (appropriately enough) younger than he did in the original series.]] ** In ''Lagann-hen'', [[spoiler:the Anti-Spiral's face briefly appears on the moon's surface just as Nia accepted Simon's marriage proposal.]]

* {{Bowdlerize}}: [[HotSpringsEpisode Episode 6]] received several edits, particularly Kamina abandoning the Gurren Lagann for the promise of seeing the captured girls censored bodies (turns out they were wearing {{Modesty Towel}}s. Yoko berates him for his stupidity (she's just angry about the hot springs being a trap in the edited version) and later tracks him down to [[DopeSlap pound his face in]]. When Kamina stands by his choice, she finally yells that [[DidISayThatOutLoud he only needs to ask to see her breasts]].

Work titles should be italicized, but not boldfaced (even if they're that Hot Blooded)

->''"Go beyond the impossible, and kick reason to the curb! That's how Team Gurren rolls!"'' -->-- '''[[MemeticBadass Kamina]]''' ''Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann'' (roughly "Heaven-Piercing Crimson Face") is what happens when Creator/StudioGainax [[TemptingFate is asked to create]] a SaturdayMorningCartoon. Lonely orphan Simon ([[NoPronunciationGuide pronounced "SHI-mon" in Japanese and "SEE-moan" in the English dub]]) lives in an underground village, digging for ancient artifacts and eating pigmoles. His [[BigBrotherMentor self-appointed big brother]], Kamina, is a [[{{Badass}} hot-headed badass]] who dreams of going to the "Surface" as his father did (despite the village elder constantly saying the "Surface" doesn't exist). One fateful day, Simon discovers a strange drill-shaped key and, soon after, [[MiniMecha a pint-sized mecha]] which responds to the key. While taking an unapproved excursion to see it, Simon and Kamina are interrupted by the village elder...then by the roof of the village collapsing...''then'' by [[HumongousMecha a massive, bestial, robotic head]]...and '''''then''''' by Yoko, [[SmallGirlBigGun a woman with a very big gun]] ([[{{Stripperiffic}} and very little clothing]]) firing at said beast-mecha--a "Gunmen".[[note]]''Ganmen'' in Japanese, meaning "face"[[/note]] Thus begins a rollercoaster ride of {{Fanservice}}, over-the-top fight scenes between mecha, [[HotBlooded hot-bloodedness]], [[CoolShades epic sunglasses]], massive {{Badass}}ery, and mind-blowing heroism. The show is loads of fun and seldom takes itself seriously; it could be described as the exact polar opposite of [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Gainax's other famous series about giant mecha]]. Don't try reading any science into the show--common theory (and damn near the WordOfGod) says its universe's ''laws of physics'' are subservient to the RuleOfCool. On MohsScaleOfScienceFictionHardness, ''Gurren Lagann'' is soft enough to be spread on a bagel. There are two {{Compilation Movie}}s (with new scenes to help tie things together and provide movie-original climaxes): ''Gurren-hen'' ("Crimson Lotus Chapter", titled as ''Childhood's End'' outside of Japan) and ''Lagann-hen'' ("Spiral Stone Chapter", similarly titled ''The Lights in the Sky Are Stars''). There are also three manga: one is a slightly altered version of the anime, another is a hilariously awesome HighSchoolAU, and the third is set in an AlternateUniverse focusing on Simon and Nia. A BuddyCopShow FanWebcomic by the name of ''WebComic/DoubleK'' also exists--and it is ''glorious''.

One more thing before we get to the tropes: this show is [[Quotes/TengenToppaGurrenLagann highly quotable]].

** Sources are split whether pre TimeSkip Yoko is 16 or 14. The latter would make her around Simon's age, even though her features appear far more mature. ** Taken UpToEleven in the HighSchoolAU where pretty much everyone's age is up for grasp since most of the main characters seem to be in the ''exact same grade'' despite some characters clearly being established to be older than others regardlesss of what their age in the anime is mentioned to be. Some gems include: *** Rossiu being the only one who takes his TimeSkip appearance and is thus older than the rest of the cast. *** The dynamics between Kittan's siblings are also messed up. Kinon is Rossiu's assistant and also takes her TimeSkip appearance, despite being established to be the middle child of the Black Sisters. Speaking of which, then there is Kiyoh who is still married to Dayakka and humorously claims to not mention this fact to anyone since it would land them in trouble. And then there's Kittan who is established to be the oldest Black sibling being in Simon's grade with his two sisters. *** Finally, there's Leeron who in the anime proper is more or less one of the adults being a student as well.
