Kamina, the original GAR anime character.
Ahhh. Wish I could watch this all over again.
Maybe in a few more years.

What I find great about Kamina is his absolute fearlesness in the face of adversity and his ability to instill that fearlessness in others (even from beyond the grave!) He is the absolute personification of the "Fighting Spirit". He is a role model like many great men throughout history such as Mahatma Gandhi, MLK, Thich Quang Duc, and The Founding Fathers of America.

The anime is probably one of the best animated mecha anime out there however if we're going to talk about story and characters its probably below average.

True. The only character that develops is Simon, and as much as he and many fans try to deny, he really did become a Kamina clone. Everyone else just has a shining moment. I would have liked to see Kamina as a character rather than Kamina the Jesus, as we were forced to see him after the unfortunate events in episode 8.

Yeah that's probably why I hated this show so much. I wanted the kid to surpass Kamina be his own guy not become a clone. Also the point of the show was that of survival and overcoming great odds but then Nia was dying and Simon acted like it was okay and I'm like wtf? I expected him to act more shocked and all that

i see some people missed the entire point of the anime. this anime was about alot of things. growth, love, bonds, many yelling, exponential growth. every character in the show grew and changed in some way, as their motivations were explored or through self sacrifice they saved the human race in the spiral war.

lets talk about kamina. kamina is a great character, not just because of his pure GARness, even though the odds were always against him he always fought his hardest, to protect his little brother and the other people that he chose to protect. and like a real man, when he saw something he wanted, or something he wanted to do, he didnt ask, he just took it, or he did it. and by this virtue it happened. he stole a mech, he combined, he even got the girl. this makes kamina the best mc of all time.

yoko. she is arguably the most important female in the anime. is she dressed skimpy? yes. so is kamina, and alot of other people. the world is a wasteland, its probably hot. yoko never takes anyones shit, she has the coolest weapon, and after the unfortanate events of ep 8. she isnt broken, she still fights, she still lives, and maybe loves again.

nia. we all love nia. does she have a couple of problematic areas sure, but she also knows that. she started off as nothing more than a doll princess to be cast aside and told to die. but that doesnt matter. she doesnt have to fight like yoko to be strong. she has a very strong will, that is shown many many times. she is more than just the love interest.

now the rest of the sub characters dont have as much depth, but they ALL have some. the all learn and grow, the love, they hate and they all have there own motivations on why they do the things they do. if you watch this anime and love the things that explode, great, but if you hate it because you never saw the other things that were right there behind the explosions the whole time. you are doing it wrong.

Kamina wasn't like jesus to them. He was their leader and role model, everyone looked up to him and admired his spirit no matter the situation they were in good or bad. If the person you looked up too died, I think most people react the same way.

I do agree though that this is one of the greatest mecha anime ever. No one will ever match the manliness of kamina, Simon, and kittan. Not to mention it's full of motivational quotes.

One of my favorites:

"Remember this! This drill will open a hole in space. And that hole will become a road for those that follow! The hopes of the fallen and the hopes of those to come...Combining these feelings into a double-helix, I'll dig a hole to the future! That's Tengen Toppa! That's Gurren Lagann! My drill is the drill that creates the Heavens!"

I watched it awhile ago and was imo one of the best mecha theme series I've watched. WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK I AM?! Movies were refreshing to watch as well.
