Aniplex USA Announces New "Gurren Lagann" Home Video Release

New DVD boxset to be released alongside Japanese Blu-Ray set

During its panel at Sakura-Con this afternoon, Aniplex USA announced plans to release the 2007 smash hit Gurren Lagann on home video in two new releases later this year. The series was once held by ADV Films before being snapped up by Bandai in 2008 following the former company's collapse, only to be forced out of print when Bandai Entertainment ended operations last year.
