In recent news I just found the cast for the unaired ADV dub.;_2007)
What do we think?

I actually listened to the ADV dub for this series before.

In terms of what I think, though? It's... okay? I liked Josh Grelle as Simon (I'd be interested in seeing FUNimation do their own dub and have him reprise the role, if you ask me), Tiffany Grant as Yoko, and John Gremillion as Dayakka; on the other hand, I wasn't that impressed with Brett Weaver as Kamina (I think he'd fit Vector the Crocodile a lot better using that kind of voice, in fact), Vic Mignogna as Viral (he sounded too high-pitched), and Mark X. Laskowski as Leeron (too deep for my liking).

That's just me, though.

@Marusero For Kamina, I think Jay Hickman would have been cast as that character instead of Brett Weaver. For Viral, since Vic Mignogna's take was too high, I think Blake Shepard would have made a good Viral. For Leeron, I think Vic Mignogna could have been great as that character instead of Viral.

@littlepaul1002 I also think David Wald can make a better Leeron.

@JRPictures Haha nice. How do you know if an anime is union or not? If Steve blum, crispin Freeman, or yuri lowenthal etc... are in them ?
said at 2:31 AM on Mon Aug 29 2016
@DeathGod46 Usually based off the actors cast or if the show itself is listed in the Screen Actors Guild database.

Let me just say that I finished this series today. I think it's pretty cool. My favorite characters would probably have to be Simon and Viral. I just think their English dub voices are phenomenal. Props to Yuri Lowenthal and Sam Riegel as their respective characters.

Also, gotta love Sorairo Days and Happily Ever After, both by Shoko Nakagawa.

I was finally able to watch this show thanks to Toonami. And I must say this…

This is an amazing anime. I definitely recommend it.

A show that definitely needs to be higher up on the popularity list.

Coming to toonami? Oh Yeah! Love this whole show minus the last 5 minutes. Gives me another reason to watch Toonami other than Space Dandy.

Gurren Lagann is, and probably will be during the future, one of the best animes so far that came out in the anime industry, balancing out the majority of Narutards, Bleachtards, and Onetards (in case you didn't know, I was referring 'One Piece' as this; still a better series than the prior two franchises I mentioned earlier) and tends to end up as an excellent series. I've first heard of this series only because of the various references on YouTube, and I had to check out the real thing myself... I WAS damn surprised at what I came across! TTGL has, and is not limited to, a distinct art style, an amazing plot for just 27 episodes of raw entertainment (most can agree that the conclusion of the eighth episode was incredibly sad all due to one event: Kamina died!), actual Giant Robot fights that seem to be less of a hindrance than that of Neon Genesis Evangelion, great character development (take that, Shinji Ikari... Actually someone can progress a bit faster at times.), and the less important of all, but I'm still addressing anyway, exceptional voice acting... Interesting to note is that I slightly preferred the dub to the sub, which I've also done on some other anime shows/movies such as Cowboy Bebop, FLCL, Fullmetal Alchemist, and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, and I usually don't care about the "Sub vs. Dub" wars that keep going on since it's pointless opinions... But yeah, they gotta keep those to themselves, and so do I. In the anime industry, it's fine with me if a franchise that originated in Japan comes to the States, just as long as it isn't dubbed by a certain company, and by this, I mean 4Kids... And don't get me wrong, they have a passable voice cast, but their bizzare editing skills are just notorious for being just lackluster, it makes me cringe when I see stuff such as a blue Mr. Popo.

But I'm getting off topic here, and to end it, I just wanna say that Gurren Lagann is just a near-perfect anime for me, and I'm glad Gainax made it... Those drug-implanting geniuses!

^ Just a heads up for everyone who hasn't watched the series, there's a HUGE spoiler in this block of text that I was foolish enough to read, it totally ruined one of the episodes for me. In fact just don't even read any of the reasons for why the show or these characters are favourited, TURN BACK NOW, WATCH THE SERIES AND SAVE YOURSELF!
