Imagine an 80's BuddyCopShow, like ''Series/StarskyAndHutch'', or better yet, ''MiamiVice''. Got the bad acting, and [[BondOneLiner cheesy one-liners]], and [[TheEighties horrible outfits]] filling your brain? Good. But most of all, do you remember the [[StuffBlowingUp explosions]], the [[GunsAkimbo gunfights]], and the [[MadeOfIron invincible]] protagonists who always fought against all odds to save the day? One man over at Website/{{deviantART}} did. That man was Nathan "Captain Osaka" Maurer, who decided to resurrect the buddy cop genre with the aid of... [[UniversalAdaptorCast the cast of]] ''Animw/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''?

Enter ''[[http://captainosaka.deviantart.com/art/DOUBLE-K-001-82688715 DOUBLE K]]'', the comic so intense and over the top its name is written in ALL CAPS. Starring [[CowboyCop Kamina]] and [[ByTheBookCop Kittan]] as the titular buddy cop duo, ''DOUBLE K'' mirrors the story of ''Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann'' in the world of Teppelin Beach, a [[MiamiVice Miami Beach]] parody that is under the watchful eye of the GPD.

What follows in this setting has to be seen to be believed, with fantastic art, brilliant jokes, and enough ''Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann'' in-jokes to make any fan of buddy cop films or of ''Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann'' [[RuleOfFunny laugh]] and [[RuleOfCool watch in awe]] as the protagonists do [[SerialEscalation ever greater feats]].

* UniversalAdaptorCast: The entire reason this comic works is because the cast of ''GurrenLagann'' is one. Personalities and character designs are almost ''completely'' unchanged (except for Lordgenome), and they fit ''perfectly'' in the new setting.

* ChewOutFakeOut: Kamina tells Kittan the story of a drug bust he handled, and he honestly expects the goody-two-shoes Kittan to berate him over it. [[spoiler: Kittan instead proclaims, tears in his eyes, that it's the greatest story he's ever heard, and reveals that he's just as crazy as Kamina, and that his by-the-book image was just a fake-out so he could transfer to another department.]]

* {{Expy}}: Several of the prostitutes were other Gainax girls, with Asuka-whore getting the most screentime. Along with Asuka-whore, there's [[DieBuster Nono-whore, Lal'C-whore,]] [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion and Rei-whore]]. There have been hints of other Gainax girls showing up in the background later. Of course it is also a reminder to the [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann original]]'s HotSpringsEpisode, where they were in practically same role.

* FunctionalAddict: [[spoiler:[[DaChief Lordgenome]] is eventually revealed to be one near the end of Volume One. While usually the ReasonableAuthorityFigure that gets stuck [[OnlySaneMan dealing]] with [[CowboyCop Kamina's]] antics, and one of the few people that can keep him in check, his not noticing any signs of Kittan's "[[TheAce Ace Cop]]" status being a lie, and his being unable to stop Kittan and Kamina from throwing a massive party in the station after they arrested Thymilph are a reasult of him needing another fix of [[FantasticDrug Spiral]] after he'd run out. His [[FlippingTheTable reaction]] to getting more from [[BigBad Rossiu]] seems to indicate that he's [[UnderStatement not exactly happy]] with his situation, either...]]
