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.

Good and bad news came from Anime Limited in regards to their Gurren Lagann release. The bad news, which isn’t so bad, is that the release has been moved from the 1st of September to the 29th of September. However, the move has been made due to some rather good news and to allow Anime Limited to polish the release a little bit more.
Interesting news appeared this morning as Anime Limited revealed that Kill la Kill and Gurren Lagann are now available to watch on Netflix UK!
All 25 episodes of Kill la Kill have gone up on the service and can be watched subbed. Meanwhile all 27 episodes of Gurren Lagann have gone up on the service and can be watched subbed or dubbed. Both are top class series’ so it’s really nice to see them being added to Netflix. You can read my review of Kill la Kill right here
Overall the range of anime on offer to the UK via Netflix is fairly slim compared to the US offerings, but with Anime Limited seemingly interested in bringing more anime to the service here we should have some fairly interesting times ahead!
