Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann: Gurren Gakuen-Hen (Gurren School Edition) will feature the cast of Gainax's robot mecha anime in a school in a parallel world in multidimensional space. As the character Kamina puts it, the cast will "enjoy school life" and "sweat under the glittering sun."

I saw it one SciFi. It's pretty good, though I watched it with my mom. She says she doesn't like how Yoko(I believe that's her name) is dressed. Neither do I, personally, but by now I'm used to that in anime. At first I had thought it to be like like most mecha(with the addition of kick-@$$ sunglasses) but it's much better than I thought. At least, better than Code Geass, which I heard was good, but really, really sucks

for adverts i suggest dvr.
On the dub, Simon being pronounced as 'see-mone' is god-awful. You may lose some of the hidden meanings of his name (but it's still being pronounced wrong for that intended meaning to be properly interpreted, not to mention the wordplay isn't mentioned ....) , but for american tv it's better to localize a bit more to have a proper english pronunciation of Simon.
The intro also seems a bit sped-up, but it's great to see the series on tv. It deserves the airtime.

New information about the Gurren-Lagann movie:
-Added focus on Simon and Nia, Lord Genome and Yoko. -Exactly 50 minutes of newly animated footage. -Final confrontation of Nia and Lord Genome was re-invented. Very intense. -Actually, every single new scene with Lord Genome is thriving with intensity. -The narrative was rewritten to fit into a single delivery rather than the episodic presentation of the TV show. Has a very distinctive flow.
Spoilers just cover up some characters who haven't shown up in the dub yet. Source: Newtype via 2chan
