Synopsis of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
Simon and Kamina were born and raised in a deep underground village, hidden from the legendary surface. Kamina is a free-spirited stray bullet hell-bent on making a name for himself, while Simon is a shy young man with no real aspirations. One day, while excavating the earth, Simon stumbles upon a mysterious object that turns out to be the ignition key to an ancient war artifact, which the duo call Lagann. Using their new weapon, Simon and Kamina defend themselves from a surprise attack from the surface with the help of Yoko Littner, a hot-blooded redhead wielding a huge pistol who wanders the world above.
After the battle, the sky comes into view, leading Simon and Kamina on a journey with Yoko to explore the wastelands above. They soon join the fight against the “Beastmen”, humanoid creatures who terrorize the remnants of humanity in powerful robots called “Gunmen.” While facing some challenges and setbacks, the trio bravely battle these new foes alongside other survivors to regain the surface, while slowly unraveling a galaxy-sized mystery.
