Gurren Lagann (Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann) the huge hit anime from 2007, celebrated its 10-year anniversary with a re-broadcast of the series that will start on 5 July 2017. It has been hinted that there will be a very big announcement during the advertisements of Episode 1!
TRIGGER’s Hiromi Wakabayashi said on Twitter:
The production by Studio Trigger & A1 Pictures announced during the Trigger panel at AX will reveal details during the advertisements of the Gurren Lagan re-run on 5 July 2017, 24:30. I think those who have supported us since the Gainax era will be very happy to hear our plans, so please look forward to it a lot!
Many fans think it might be related to Darling in the Frankxx, one of the three series to be produced by Trigger that were announced at Anime Expo.
On the internet, there are already rumors going around that Atsushi Nishigori will be assigned as the director. Nishigori worked on the character design for Gurren Lagann and was a key figure in the animation direction, but he also has worked on the A-1 Pictures series Idolmaster. Other titles announced at Anime Expo were Promare by Hiroyuki Imaishi and Kazuki Nakashima, and Gridman by Akira Amemiya. If Nishigori will be appointed, the rest of the staff will also be announced, so we are looking forward to more announcements!
