It's a good idea to come up with teaser trailer shorts, just a little market enquiry and must have been fun to do for the creators.

Dismissable except the 2nd (Champlooesque alternate) and 8th (Macross&Eva crossover with quality animation) ones.

Still there is no harm watching it if you liked the series. There are almost no spoilers since these are imaginary what if? trailers, you can barge in whatever point you are on the series.

I am a fan of Gurren .. but these were just ...well its hard to even review them because they made absolutely no sense... read more

Both Parallel Works and 5555 are works driven by the music that plays in them. They're 80% music video, 20% anime.
