Gurren Lagann, the popular Japanese mecha is soon going to revive the Second season of its series. This technical cyborg, space tech, and machines based anime have a strong fan base that is craving more and more for their favorite heroes Simon and Kamina.
A Peek Into The Storyline
27 episodes of Season 1, take us forward in the future when Earth is controlled by an Evil King, Lordgenome. People are forced to live in villages with no communication to the surface beings. However, Simon and Kamina have reached the surface by using the Lagann technology, where they discover the world, the sky, space, and fight threats from other beings on Earth.
In the end, we see that 2 decades have passed and the Anti-Spiral team has retired, but now they have a younger generation that has to be safeguarded.

There are a plethora of actors who have brought life to these characters and lent their voices to them, beginning from the main character of Simon, which is voiced by Tetsuya Kakihara and Yuri Lowenthal in the Japanese and English versions.
