The plot is divided into 3 different arcs. The first, the Spiralmonger Arc, deals with Lucas joining the resistance and slowly driving the Spiralmongers off Earth completely. There is then a five-year timeskip between it and the next arc, the Spiral Planet arc, where the resistance travels to the Spiralmonger home planet to wipe them out completely. The third and final arc begins almost immediatley afterward, with a Black Gurren Lagann emerging from a rip in time space. Piloted by an old and evil Simon, he announces his intent to wipe out the universe with the real Spiral Nemisis. This leads into the Drill, the Stars, and Me mini-arc, detailing the conclusion of the series and what happened to the characters.
Most of the episode titles are named after songs on the original series OST, though some are of more traditional anime fare.

- This reference is continued in Chapter 29, where Lucas, when Neo Dai-Gurren are surrounded by Spiralmongers, quotes Simon. ("So, all the lights in the sky are our enemies now? But they're a worthy opponent! I'll use the fabric of space and time to wipe them out!")
- It is even heavily implied near the end of the series that Lucas's last name is Garlock, the name Simon is called by in the trailer.
