Aniplex of America has also reached out to fans with an online survey to determine which episode they will be screening at the event.

To celebrate the milestone, Aniplex of America will also be releasing a complete Blu-ray Disc Box available on August 8, 2017, which includes all 27 episodes of the television series and both feature length movies –Childhood’s End- and –The Lights in the Sky Are Stars-. Described as “one of the greatest super robot anime series ever created” by Forbes’ Ollie Barder, Gurren Lagann is well known for its passionate fan base and the impact the series has had on its audience.

Attendees of the Gurren Lagann 10th Anniversary Event at Otakon can look forward to exclusive giveaways. The results from the survey will be announced at the Anniversary Event and on Aniplex of America’s social media.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of this 10th anniversary celebration of Gurren Lagann. When I first came on board with the project I was taken by the fact that the spirit of the show seemed so comfortably familiar, but was entirely new at the same time,” says Tony Oliver. “The storytelling is very bold and sometimes ‘in-your-face,’ but the depth of the characters, their complex relationships, and the scope of the story itself gives the show a near perfect balance. All in all recording the dub for Gurren Lagann was a fulfilling and satisfying experience that has directly led to everything I’ve been able to do since. Happy 10th Gurren Lagann!”
