Why didn't Simon just bring Nia back after she disintegrated? Or better yet, just fucking stop it from happening in the first place?

Isn't he supposed to be the most powerful being in the entire fucking universe at this point?

How about this: Why didn't Simon end up banging Yoko?

because he's not god

Didn't he say that he could even bring back Kamina, but just didn't want to?
>>
>>100288812
Probably but I don't think there's even that option with Nia. She became completely assimilated with the Anti-Spirals remember?
>>
He could have, but it would be exactly the kind of abuse the anti-spiral was warning them about.
>>
The better question is why she had to die in the first place. Having a character die after the plot is resolved always smacks of edgy "lol, can't have anyone be happy" drama.
>>
>>100288709
If people lived forever then they would just get in the way of everyone else.
>>
>>100289156
They hinted multiple times at that if the anti-spirals were destroyed nia would disappear too.
>>
>>100289156
But that's not how the characters took it so that's not what it was.
>>
wouldn't that cause Spiral Nemesis?
>>
Why did Simon end up with such a sad end?
He was the one who deserved to be rewarded the most.
>>
>>100289310
It was more because simon was all about creating a path that could be followed by those to come. If you just have people living forever then they get in the way of new generations.
>>
>>100289202
Just saying that something's gonna happen doesn't justify why it should happen.
>>
Seriously who cares, she was the worst thing about that show next to Yoko. I was glad when she fucking disappeared.
>>
>>100289362
But they explained that she was a life-form tied into the anti-spirals. They directly hinted at it and explained it. It didn't come out of nowhere and should have been expected by anyone with half a brain.
>>
>>100288757
because he is dumb
>>
>>100288757
No, how about this: Why didn't simon end up banging Kiyal? She clearly wanted the D.
>>
>>100288709

The fuck are you talking about anon?
>>
>>100289470
>Why didn't simon end up banging Kiyal?
He should have done that from the beginning.
>>
>>100289202
Like the anime could not have found an asspull reason to keep her alive. The only reason why she had to die was "bittersweet" end.
>>
Because fucking with living beings that way is what Lord Genome would do, and I'm pretty damn sure Simon didn't want to follow his path. Plus, Simon was able to let go. Nigga had the strongest spirit in the universe, he could become a god if he wanted to. But he didn't. He's too cool for that.
>>
>>100289432
I get that, it was foreshadowed, I just think that as a plot device it's totally unnecessary and only serves to fuck over Simon in the way that gainax likes to fuck over their protagonists for no particular reason once the story is resolved

This, basically. You bring back one person because losing her is painful, you're going to have many more people wanting to bring back their persons because losing them is painful. It's about setting an example and breaking the spiral to destruction that the Anti-Spiral predicted.
>>
>>100289539
Yes. Because he deserved having a happy ending.

Except not, simon eliminated all anti-spirals. Why should Nia be special snowflake and not go disappear with them?
To me it made sense and i was content with the ending even if simon ended up alone. Not all endings have to be completely happy ever after. Simon saved his race from annihalation and freed probably hundreds of other races as well. He achieved something great and will now be watching the world from the sidelines being ready to stop the spiral nemesis should it ever become an issue.
>>
>>100289584
He chose to be a hobo
>>
>>100289682
It was fucking obvious, especially in the movies. Hell during the final fight she goes "Simon.." while Dayakka's wife goes "Honey...".
How much more fucking obvious could it be.
>>
>>100289531
do you think he practices?
drilling holes don't count
>>
>>100289584
He could have lived with his friends and found a new love interest. He chose to travel the world because it was what he wanted and because he wanted to fill the world with flowers.
He achieved his own goal in life, now he's working to fulfill Nia's dream. It's bittersweet but still to me a good ending.

Debatable. I prefer romances to end in a positive way. Him being a lonely wanderer isn't what i see as positive.

But he's happy himself, sure he would've been happier with Nia around, but he's still happy.
>>
>>100289884
>sure he would've been happier

A lot happier. I am pretty sure he still thinks about her and the family they could have had every day.
>>
>>100289432
But they didn't have to do that either. It's not like it effected the characters decision-making within the show.

>>100289941
So you want them to change the story so that you can have your happy ever after ending? She was an anti-spiral, destroying anti-spirals also meant destroying nia. You essentially want them to change the story so that Nia is no longer an anti-spiral?
>>
>>100288757
Because he would have fucking died like Kamina and that other faggot.

She has the kiss of death.
>>
>>100289927
So? He would have also been happier with kamina around. And Kittan around. And everyone else that died.
Some sacrifices have to be made to achieve your goals.

It doesn't fucking matter what you see as positive. Clearly Simon was positive about it, and that's all that really matters. If Simon's happy for himself why can't you be happy for him?
>>
>>100290020
Why making her an anti-spiral in the first place? It was all so Simon had to fight a person he loves (which developing love we never saw because fucking time jump). And after he finally rescued her and was reunited it was all "Fuck you we need more drama!"

Taking from him his parents, then 'brother' and then his wife is a bit too much. After all he had done i wish he would at least get some form of personal reward.

Simon is happy as a digger, he's not walking around sad and moping, that's nothing like simon after he grew balls. He has moved on and is enjoying his life on a day-to-day basis.

When this happen?
>>
>>100290399
It should hopefully never become an issue, but simon could keep himself alive forever which is what most people assume is the case and that it's one of the thing leeron was referring to.
That simon will forever watch over the universe, ready to step in and protect them should it ever become necessary.
>>
>>100290399
It is an unstoppable force, it is pretty much tied to the evolution, as long as there living beings there will be spirial power being used, that results in brining the spirial nemesis slowly but surely.

That's one of the main reasons Simon doesn't use godly powers to keep himself young, ressurect whoever he wants to and etc. He is the biggest source of Spiral Power in the universe, doing whatever he wants also means bringing the end of the world.

It's like you ignore everything they fought for.
They fought so that the spiral nemesis would NEVER occur and they promised to make sure it would never happen. It's not slowly but surely, because it wont happen.
>>
How's the manga ending? It ended in 2012 if I'm not mistaken.
>>
>>100290662
The spiral nemesis is essentially the heat death of the universe re-worded for the rules of TTGL. You can't stop that, only slow it.
>>
>>100290729
No, you can stop it.
That's what the anti-spirals were doing it. They put it at a complete halt, essentially stopping it if they had not been stopped themselves. Simon defeated them claiming that they would stop it and make sure it never happened and in the final episode post-timeskip they say that they're going to meet with other spiral races to help stop the spiral nemesis.

It wont happen you fucking idiot.
>>
>>100290662
What? Simon & Co fought against the Anti-Spiral to prove they could deal with the Spiral Nemesis their own way, not to erase it, they can't erase it.
>>
>>100290798
It will happen, Simon pretty much said "I will face the damn thing head on when it comes", there isn't a single passage that says "I stopped the Spiral Nemesis, you Anti-Spiral can rest in peace"..
>>
>>100290903
>I will face the damn thing head on when it comes
He says he would stop it IF it happened you moron.
>>
>>100290924
What's so hard to understand about the fact that it WILL HAPPEN? The thing is directly tied to the usage of Spiral Power which in TTGL's world basically means doing anything and everything, from living, to loving, to piloting giant robots.
>>
>>100290924
And it fucking will. Take off your rose colored glasses for a second faggot.

>>100288709
More like why didn't Simon fucked Yoko after Nia met her maker?

>>100291273
That would the equivalent of signing for his own funeral, at that point Yoko killed two people who just kissed her, who knows what would happen after she had full intercrouse with Simon.

I fucking hate that argument, and all that after entire TTGL being about overcoming humanity's limits suddenly they decide it's time to stop pushing it and have to become all meek and shit. Fuck that, if God's out there we need to act like Victorian era explorers, find him, kill him and take a photo over his corpse(possibly nail his head to some wall), that's the humanity way.

Because that not how it works. They did the biggest motherfucking revolution in the universe and retrieved freedom. No wonder they'd have to make sacrifices to achieve it. That's how real life work, you don't get the "Undo everything because I'm a God" button.

It the same as when they got out of that multidimensional maze, they could have lived a perfect life over there, but they chose to face life, sadness and death, for the greater good.
Simon won't repop people because it's not right.

Spiral Nemesis will never happen you sick fuckers.
Simon and the others fought for it. That's precisely why there's a 20 years timeskip and this final scene.
>All these Gurren Lagann in the skies ! Will they win the fight ?
>They're not going to fight. They're going to make friends. After all, all these lights are our spiral brothers waiting for us.
>>
>>100289566
This. It was willfully choosing to not abuse his power in that though he could, he chose NOT to, so as to set an example for all that would follow.

As the effective new role model for EVERY FUCKING SPIRAL RACE IN EXISTANCE, this restraint shows the resolve that puts the protection of the universe's future against the spiral nemesis on par with the antispiral's protection.

Simon's choice is the path of not growing drunk on spiral power; the path of will, resolve, and reason, the things the antispiral accused us of lacking. However, it's also separate from the path of what the antispiral was aiming to do, as it still allows the path for others to exist in the future
