Inspirations and Derivative worksEdit

Counting the things that inspired Gurren Lagann is an impossible task. Barely an episode goes by without a shout-out to SOMETHING. The most prominent inspirations, however, are Mazinger Z, Gunbuster, Diebuster, and Getter Robo.

Gurren Lagann on Hulu



This is a clever parody of the mecha genre, getting over and over the top as you get closer to the end.


This show is proof that we can still have good things.


The show grows the beard really hard and really fast around the climax of episode 8. It just keeps getting progressively more awesome from there.
