File this under ‘slightly old news’ but last Friday Anime Limited (also known as All The Anime) announced on their Facebook page that the upcoming Blu-ray release of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann will include the two Gurren Lagann movies as well as the parallel works OVA Series, both of which have never been released within the UK.

With your copy of TTGL on blu-ray, you will now get the 2 TTGL movies AND the parellel works! That’s right – we’re throwing in all those extras with the set! These will be split between the 2 blu-ray sets. How & what will be where, we’re still waiting on licensor approval. But rest assured, you’ll be getting all the goodies with your blu-ray copy of Gurren Lagann! AND it won’t be $500

For those unaware the first movie (Childhoods end) acts as a summary to the first 15 episodes, while the second movie (The lights in the Sky are Stars) acts as a sequel to the overall series. The Parallel Works OVA episodes on the other hand are alternative stories set to songs from the series original soundtrack. Since the movies and OVA Series has not been dubbed into English, they will be provided in Japanese with English subtitles.

It is currently not known if these ‘extras’ will be included with the DVD edition of the series, but Anime Limited has confirmed that they will be included with the Blu-ray Edition, which is being released over two sets. Both the DVD & Blu-ray Editions are currently expected to be released later this year.
