Gurren Lagann TV Series: Complete Collection Anime (2008)
sadly i only just finished this anime, and i had never heard of it before my brother told me about it.
Ok, so just so everyone is on the same page and I don’t have to ruin anything, at the start of this anime everyone on Earth lives underground. No one has every seen the sky and everyone believes that there is nothing above the cave roof but more rock. At the beginning of this anime we are introduced to Simon the digger. Simon works to help build out the caves so that the people of the village can expand. He loves working as he gets to find cool things buried in the ground but he is also a little apprehensive, especially during earthquakes, because his parents died in a tunnel collapse. His life and those of the villagers are changed one day when a giant robot falls through the roof. Simon and his brother Kamina go to the surface and learn that gun men are what were causing the earthquakes and that there job is to exterminate any humans that are on the surface. This is the start of an epic battle between the humans on the surface and the beast men that pilot the gun men.
