Gurren Lagann (2007), known in Japan as Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann (天元突破グレンラガン Tengantoppa Gurenragan, literally "Heaven-Piercing Crimson Lotus Enveloping Face"), is a Japanese mecha anime television series created by Gainax and co-produced by Aniplex and Konami. It takes place in a fictional future where Earth is ruled by the Spiral King, Lordgenome, who forces mankind to live in isolated subterranean villages. These villages have no contact with the surface world and a few of them with no other villages, and are under constant threat of earthquakes.

  • It wasn't going well, my confidence was shut and i thought we were heading in the wrong direction, i freaked out and kept asking myself "Why did my Dad make it up to the surface and i can't?". Honestly i was just acting tough. Everyone was whining and they stopped digging. I guessed it was finally the end of my road. But Simon, he kept on drilling away. His drilling let me put on a brave face. By dumb luck, he broke through that last boulder right then. We got really lucky, but i have faith in all that luck, and in Simon, who brought us that luck in the first place. Whenever I feel timid and weak, or feel like i'm losing confidence, I picture the sight of his back all hunched over, digging away. I think to myself, "I refuse to be left at by that back." Listen, Simon. Never forget this. Believe in yourself. Not in the Simon that i have faith in, not in the Kamina that you believe in either. Believe in the Simon who believes in you.(Episode 11)

PLEASE, NIA!! (Episode 22)
  • ROOOSSIUUUUUUUU!! LET'S SEE YOU GRIT THOSE TEEEETH!!! (Episode 23)
  • Snapped out of it yet, Rossiu? You know, I was once belted like that too. Everybody makes mistakes, it's to be expected, but, when you do make a mistake, you should be slugged by someone. I mean, there is no need to punish yourself. At the time, you might think that it's a mistake that you can never undo, even if it is, if we kick and scream and fight like Hell, we'll move forward a little bit. I was taught, to Believe in the Me that believes... in Myself. That's probably how it should be, at least that's what i think. You had the courage and strength to try to do something that I never could have done, no matter what. What's so terrible about that? Come on, Rossiu, I need you. (Episode 23)

  • The tomorrow we're trying to reach is...not a tomorrow you've decided on! We... by ourselves... choose our tomorrow from the infinite universes! We will fight through it... we will fight through it and protect the universe! We'll show you we can do it! (Episode 27) (Japanese version)
    • Simon: Of course we do, The tomorrow we are trying to grab for ourselves... IT'S NOT THE TOMORROW THAT YOU SET OUT FOR US!! It's the tomorrow that we choose for ourselves, a tomorrow that we choose out of all the infinite Universes, We'll fight our way through! We'll keep fighting and protect the Universe! WE'LL STOP THE SPIRAL NEMESIS TOO!!
    • Anti-Spiral:You can't POSSIBLY ACCOMPLISH ALL THAT!
    • Simon: JUST WATCH US!! (English version)
  • HEY ANTI-SPIRAL! You wanted to see my resolve?! THIS is my resolve, the resolve of Team Super Galaxy Dai-Gurren. I'll say it as many times as I have to: JUST WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK WE ARE?! (Lagann-Hen)

  • Your actions are baffling, Irregular. Why do you resist us so? You were a virtual lifeform that was spliced into the genome of the Spiral race. When the remnants of that Spiral race rose up in rebellion against us, you would be awakened and become our messenger. That is your reason for being. The fact that you were born to and loved a Spiral Warrior is nothing more than a coincidence. There is nothing special or unique about you. It is quite a rare thing for a Messenger to be so reconsiderant. The reason behind your defiance, and the reason behind their abstinence, determining those could give us the key to exterminate all Spiral lifeforms. (Episode 27 and Lagann-Hen)
  • Impossible! Sentient lifeforms can't possibly escape from a Multi-Dimensional Labyrinth! (Episode 27, Lagann-Hen)
  • HAHAHAHAHA! You waste your time. The Universe is under our complete control. Your chances of winning here are absolutely... ZERO!! (Episode 27 and Lagann-Hen)
  • Foolish creatures, drunk on your Spiral Power. DO YOU POSSESS THE RESOLVE TO THAT?! WE DEFENDED THE UNIVERSE BY KILLING OUR FELLOW SPIRALS AND HALTING OUR OWN EVOLUTION! DO YOU POSSESS A FORTITUDE THAT IS ON PARALLEL WITH THAT, DO YOU?!! WE SAY NO!! NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO, NOT! AT! AAAAAALL!!! You possess neither Will, nor Resolve, NOR REASON!! YOU USE YOUR SPIRAL POWER TO SATISFY YOUR OWN DESIRES AND GREW DRUNK ON IT!! IT IS YOUR FUNDAMENTAL LIMITATION!! IT IS FOR THAT REASON, THAT WE MUST EXTERMINATE YOU!!!! (Episode 27 and Lagann-Hen)
  • Uuuuuuuugh... Such arrogance from a lowly species that is kept supressed by us, WE WILL MAKE YOU REGRET YOUR INSOLENCE! INFINITY.... BIG BANG.... STOOOOOOOOOOOOORRRM!!!!' BURN IN THE EVERLASTING HELLFIRE OF CREATION!! BE UTTERLY ANNIHILATED, DOWN TO THE VERY LAST SCRAP OF DNA!!! (Episode 27, Lagann-Hen)
  • Interesting, in that case: ANTI SPIRAAAAL.... GIGAAA.... DRIIILL... BREEEEEEAK!!! (Lagann-Hen)
  • Huh?! IMPOSSIBLE! NOTHING SHOULD BE ABLE TO RESIST OUR POWER!! (Lagann-Hen)
  • You struggle in vain! (Lagann-Hen)
  • If this is how it must be, protect the universe at all costs. (Last Words, Episode 27 and Lagann-Hen)

Dialogue[edit]

Simon: Bro, I think I'll be able to do the job with this.
Kamina: Alright! Smash us into that big ugly mug! Let it feel the power of Team Gurren's mighty Drill!

(Simon squeezes Lagann's handles)

Simon: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!!

(Lagann's mouth expels a green light, its hands turn into drills)

Kamina: Get going Simon, Bust through the heavens WITH YOUR DRILL!
Both: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!! (Gunman's club and right arm are obliterated by Lagann as it lifts the mecha with its thrusters' strength) AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!!!!

Kamina: So that's what they were!
Simon: THESE GUYS KILLED MY MOM AND DAD!!
Kamina: Simon, glad to see you worked up, but don't be impatient. To win a fight, it takes guts, and a cool head.
Kamina: Listen up. I'm gonna help myself to that pointy one.
Simon: Huh?!
Kamina: I bet i can get inside by going through the face in its belly. I need you to force it open.
Simon: But can you operate it?
Kamina: Well, how do you know how to pilot Lagann?
Simon: I don't know. I grabbed these things and it all just sorta, flowed into me.
Kamina: Well that's what I'll do.
Simon: What?
Kamina: You just need the old Fighting Spirit!
Simon: Uhhh, i don't think so.
Kamina: Whatever, just take us in!
Simon:That doesn't sound very COOL HEADED! (Episode 2)
Kamina: NOW LET'S DO IT!!

Both: DO YOU THINK WE ARE!? (Episode 8)
Simon: You gotta run, Nia.
Nia: What?
Simon: Once you start, keep running, and don't look back. I'll keep the Gunman busy here.
Nia: But you-
Simon: I'M SICK OF IT! I'M SICK OF HAVING TO WATCH PEOPLE DIE! I don't care what happens to me, JUST SO LONG AS NO ONE ELSE HAS TO DIE!! (Gunman opens mouth, revealing a massive missile, Simon starts shivering in terror, but Nia grabs his hands)
Nia: Is it really your wish to stop living? If you are truly frightened, then you should run. You must not die, Simon.
Simon: No. No..uh.. I'm not scared.
Nia: You must not lie either. (Simon looks at her) Come, let us escape. Together. (Episode 9)
Simon: I'm sorry i took so long.
Nia: That's okay.
Simon: I figured it out, and, well, i guess Lagann told me too, and now, i understand.
Nia: So do I. Thanks a lot, Simon..... (sees Simon's hands are bruised and bloody) Simon? Move your hands.
Simon: What?
Nia: (Nia puts her hands in Lagann's handles, which are full of blood spots from Simon's hands, then puts his hands on top of her own) There.
Simon: (Looks at Nia, and notices she's smiling at him, he smiles back, then he looks at the surface) Alright. (Episode 11 and Gurren-Hen)

Yoko: Actually, i'm afraid we are.
Attenborough: COME ON!! TO HELL WITH IT!! FIRE!!! (The Dai-Gurren burns the Sayrune with 4 cannon shots at the same time)
Viral: GENERAL ADINE! (Dai-Gunkai jumps into the air in an attempt to save Sayrune)
Simon: NO, YOU DOOOOOOON'T!! (a massive drill comes out of Gurren Lagann's forehead as Simon charges through Dai-Gunkai's mouth and tears the gigantic Gunman in half, what remains of it quickly explodes into little fragments)
Adine: Thymilph, I'm... I'm sorry... (Explodes) (Episode 12)
Simon: Thanks Pal, that impact just now, Helped me pierce the inside!
Guame: This is just a final act of desperation, there's no way he can stop... Dai-Gundo's spin.
Simon: WE'LL JUST SEE ABOUT THAT!! (Gurren Lagann lifts Dai-Gundo and spins its drill so hard it makes the Dai-Gun stop spinning)
Guame: Hunnnnnn.... (Guame is horrified, and Simon's left eye starts shining. Gurren Lagann makes its drill spin even faster, making Dai-Gundo spin in the opposite direction) STOP! STOP IT!! DAI-GUNDO MUSN'T BE SPUN AROUND THE OTHER WAY!! (The barrier that protected Teppelin is unraveled, Gurren Lagann's drill and the belly of Dai-Gundo starts to release flames of Spiral energy)
Simon and Rossiu: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!! (Gurren Lagann's drill extends and impales Guame, time slows down and everything turns grey)
Guame: Round and round. Are you watching this transpire, Your Majesty? Your humble servant Guame is still spinning. Whoooawhoaaaawhoaaaawhoawhoawhoa (Time returns to normal speed, Guame is incinerated by Dai-Gundo's internal explosions, as it's turned into a donut and explodes into pieces.) (Episode 14)
Lordgenome: There was once a man who fought as you do, also unaware that his actions would ensure humanity's extinction.
Simon: What are you talking about?
Lordgenome: Nothing you need to know, you'll be dead soon, after all. (Episode 15)
Lordgenome: Well, well, i see that it was not a bluff that you made it this far, however, your mischief ends here. Now that you have lost your body, you don't have the slightest hope of winning.
Simon:QUIT YOUR STUPID JAMMERING!! I'm not gonna lose! Nia, Yoko, Rossiu, Leeron, Kittan, Dayakka. Every member of Team Dai-Gurren believes in me! The ME that my Bro believed in, THE ME THAT I BELIEVE IN, IS NEVER GONNA LOSE TO THE LIKES! OF! YOU!! AAAAHH!!
Lordgenome: Well, we shall see. Behold, I WILL CRUSH YOU INTO DUUUUUUUUUUST!!! (Lazengann sprouts a massive amount of tendrils that completely engulf it, forming a gigantic drill as large as Teppelin's head, the drill completely destroys Lordgenome's throne room as Lagann clashes with it, unleashing an even larger shockwave that illuminates the night sky)
Simon and Nia: aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!! (Lagann cracks Lordgenome's huge drill)
Lordgenome: Uh? (Lagann breaks through and impales Lazengann in the middle of its chest) Unn.... I shouldn't have trusted a Gunman... TO GET THE JOB DONE!! (Lordgenome breaks his way out of Lazenngan's head and starts walking on its body, going straight towards Lagann)
Simon: Uh... Uh... Huh?! WAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!! (Lordgenome punches Lagann in the face, and lifts it)
Simon and Nia: AAAAAHHH!! (Lordgenome punches Lagann in the right eye so hard he sends it flying, then kicks it in the left cheek, and finally, he grabs and slams Lagann into Lazengann's body so hard it completely shatters its canopy, sending Nia Boota flying away from it towards Teppelin's top and obliterating Lazengan in the process. The screen cuts to white) (Episode 15)

(Boota licks Nia in the face, waking her up)

Nia: Ohhhh...

(Nia opens her eyes, and sees Lordgenome, whose head is overflowing with red Spiral flames, slowly walking towards Lagann and Simon, who ended up quite battered and bruised, and is struggling to keep himself standing, they are back on top of Teppelin, but the throne room is gone, and there is a greenish glow coming from the ground)

Nia: Oh no, Simon!

(Lagann tries to punch Lordgenome, but he dodges it and counterattacks, punching Lagann again and again and again, laughing hysterically while doing it. Rossiu and surprisingly, Viral, are looking in horror as Simon and Lagann get beaten to a pulp. Lagann and Lordgenome hold their hands and start pushing towards each other. An alarm sounds in Lagann as his arms start failing, Simon doesn't look in a fit condition either, his goggles are broken and are hanging from his neck, fully exposing his hair, his right eyelid is so swollen he can barely open it, his left cheek is swollen too, but not as much, and his entire body is covered in bruises)

Simon: Ghh... I can't produce... any more drills...
Lordgenome: (Grinning like crazy) What's wrong? Has all your Spiral Power run dry?
Nia: Simon! If everyone's faith in you is what gives you all of your strength then, I'll believe in you with every fiber of my being! SO PLEASE, PLEASE WIN!!
Lordgenome: Rrrg.... (Shatters Lagann's arms) HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

(Simon collapses on Lagann's face as it shuts down)

Lordgenome: I haven't had this much fun in a long time, boy. Now, BACK INTO THE DIRT WITH YOU!!(Grabs Simon's head)
Simon: Ahhh... (Grabs his Core Drill as Lordgenome lifts him by the head) HAAH!! (Stabs Lordgenome in the middle of his chest bush with the Core Drill)
Lordgenome: UGH! (Looks towards his chest) A... CORE DRILL?! (The Core Drill starts glowing, Lordgenome's head flares up and his jaw drops from the sheer horror of what's about to happen)
Simon: My name is Simon, Leader of Team Dai-Guren, Simon The Digger! If you decide that you're gonna be a wall that's standing in my way, then I have Something that will open a hole in you every time! And that Something... IS MY DRILL!!! (Simon Spins the Core Drill on in Lordgenome's chest, unleashing a gigantic explosion of Spiral Energy that goes through his chest. The blast of green light reaches over a kilometer in distance before dissipating. When the smoke clears, the greenish glow is gone revealing the night sky, and Lordgenome has a very large circular hole where his heart, lungs, spine and other vital organs used to be.)
Lordgenome: I see. Your Spiral Power has grown sufficiently to outstrip my own. (Grins at Simon and Nia) Hear this now. You will soon come to regret it.
Simon: (Looking more sad than angry) Lordgenome...
Lordgenome: I will leave you with this warning. When the land overflows with a million apes The Moon will become Hell's Messenger and completely destroy the world of the Spiral. (Rossiu looks shocked)
Simon: What does that mean?!

(Lordgenome just smiles at him, Nia notices what her father is about to do)

Nia: FATHER! NO!!

(Lordgenome ignores Nia, and he lets himself fall from Teppelin, his body is seen plummeting to the ground. Nia gives a sad look at the ground as Simon walks towards her, then her look becomes determined and she stands back up.)

Nia: Farewell, my Father. I Will... Head Towards Tomorrow (Episode 15: I Will Head Towards Tomorrow)
Simon: SMASHING THROUGH BOTH KARMA AND FATE!
Viral: The screams of life echo across the galaxy.
Both: Raging Wave Combining! Ark-Gurren... LAGAAAANN!! HUOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!! (Episode 22)
Simon: Good Job, Leeron, we can always count on you.
Leeron: I don't want just your words of praise, i want your burning heart too!
Viral: Can i kill him?
Simon: Just let it go. We need to get started. (Kyo-Mugann and Kū-Mugann combine into a saucer-like machine) Guess they can combine too, huh? (Ark-Gurren Lagann cracks his neck) COME ON! (The fused Muganns start to glow pink and charge towards Simon, a massive Spiral aura starts flowing around Ark-Gurren Lagann) Ark-Gurren Lagann... FULL POWER!! (Simon and Viral punch the Mugann, unleashing a massive amount of sparks)
Simon: Alright Viral, let's do it!
Viral: That suits me just FINE! (Ark-Gurren Lagann stops the Mugann's advance, clenches its right fist and prepares to punch)
Simon: Have a taste of the Space-Time Shattering...
Viral: Burst... Spinning...
Both: PUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNCH!!! (the Mugann is punched so hard it makes a hole in the Universe, it explodes inside the hole)(Episode 22)
Nia: Even when trapped by karma's cycle...
Yoko: The dreams we left behind will open the door!
Leeron: Even if the universe stands in our way...
Viral: Our seething blood will determine what we'll be!
Simon: WE'LL BREAK THROUGH TIME AND SPACE!
Team Dai-Gurren: AND DEFY ALL WHO WOULD STOP US TO GRAB HOLD OF OUR PATH!!!
Simon: Tengen Toppa... GURREN LAGANN!
Team Dai-Gurren: JUST WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK WE ARE?! (Episode 27, Lagann-Hen.)
