We’ve just launched the Gurren Lagann – Standard BD on our shop now so we thought we’d take the chance to give people a bit of detail about what is inside etc in case of curiosity! See below for all the information we figure folks could want:
WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?
WHAT’S THE RELEASE MADE UP OF?

HOW MUCH IS IT AND WHERE CAN I BUY IT?
Available for (at time of press):
£38.95 from Zavvi
WHAT DOES THE ULTIMATE EDITION HAVE THAT THIS DOESN’T?
– Collector’s packaging (the Ultimate is 21.5cm high, 18cm wide which gives you an idea of scale!)
– 116 page hardback art book packed with production artwork from the world of Gurren Lagann
– Gurren Lagann Movie 1: Childhood’s End
– Gurren Lagann Movie 2: The Lights in the Sky are Stars
– Parallel Works 1
– Parallel Works 2
WHY THE DIFFERENCE IN PRICE BETWEEN ULTIMATE EDITION & STANDARD?
If you compare to Zavvi (which still is the lowest price point for the Ultimate that is still in stock) then there’s approx £50 difference in pricing there! So if the above didn’t make it clear already we figured we’d quantify a bit. If we released the movies separately they would each include one of the Parallel works releases too or as a double-pack. Either way you’d be looking at about the following real cost (i.e. Amazon/Zavvi price, not SRP) if you bought them separately:
Standard amaray edition(s): £20 – £30 of value
Collector’s edition(s) ala TB The Beginning: £30 – £50 of value
Add in a large-sized hardback art book and rigid box to store it all in and hopefully this helps contextualise somewhat for folks!
IS THIS EDITION FOR ME?
If you’re not really fussed about the films or parallel works or just want the series in HD with no frills barring the bonus video then this is the release for you and it’s not limited in quantity so fear not folks!
Looking forward to releasing this shortly – just in time for MCM Comic Con no less!
