Yes, it certainly sounds bad. Anime Limited’s release of Gurren Lagann has been anything but smooth sailing for the publisher and now they’ve hit yet another delay, although it’s not their fault by any means.
Sadly, today Anime Limited have had to announce that their release of Gurren Lagann has been moved from the 29th of September to the 20th of October. It’s a bit of a blow, but again not of their doing. The printers that Anime Limited are using are receiving abnormally high orders which had an impact on how quickly things can be done. Hence the delay for Gurren Lagann.
