Gurren Lagann Eyecatch Parodies is a series of illustrations inspired by the style of eyecatches[1] or still images used to begin and end a commercial break in a Japanese TV anime Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. It’s a popular subject of mimicking in online illustrators communities since after 2007.


Gurren Lagann aired from April to September 2007 has a unique style of eyecatches which are drawn in hard contrasts, emphasize solid black shadows, and always feature a large cross-shaped reflection of light. Moreover, because staffs prepared all different still images for eyecatches of each episodes, it was one of the highlights in this TV anime.


During the airing period, the style of those catchy illustrations soon became to a subject of mimicking in deviantART[2] and particularly a brand new illustrators community pixiv[3] launched on September of that year. In addition, dozens of parody videos posted to the Japanese video sharing service Nico Nico Douga (NND) after 2008 take the form of compilation of illustrations.[4]
