As much as I loved Nia, her wedding dress is still FUCKING UGLY.
FUCK NOT THIS AGAIN ;_;
YOU MOTHERFUCKER HOW DARE YOU I CRIED AT THIS SCENE YOU KNOW TAHT YOU KNOW THAT YOU FUCING KIKE I CRIED AND YET YOU RUIN YOU FUCKING FAGGOT I HOPE YOU GET DIE
Oh god. I cried, then I laughed like a maniac. I feel like a horrible person.
When I look at her face I only think of NI-Pah
Didn't cry at Nia. I cried like a bitch over Kamina, and shed a tear when Kittan died, but Nia just didnt make me cry for some reason.
One troll down. A kajillion more to go.
I actually stopped watching the show for a couple of weeks after Kamina's death, but the other ones didn't really affect me watch. Not sure why.
What? The wedding dress is beautiful.
I thought so too.
What's wrong with her wedding dress? I thought it was one of the best wedding dresses in anime. It wasn't generic, and it fit Nia's appearance and figure well. What's there to hate?
That was a really weird final page to finish that FatalPulse doujin.
WOW SHE DIES
What happened to the Nia gallery in Danbooru? It went from 344 to 21...
How about we choose to stop watching this kind of shallow, pandering bullshit, and force the industry to evolve again. Oh, right, nothing but 14 year old boys discovering their penises around here.
Gurren-Lagann is the best thing sliced bread.
It is full of symbolism, philosphy, ideals and strong message about moving forward.
The concept of evolution is very strong in Gurren-Lagann, you must move forward, but you will destroy everything by doing so, will you do it?
The animation is superb, 22000 frames per episode is really serious. It's like watching five shows at the same time.
The characters are perfect. Kamina, Simon, Nia, Yoko, theu are more than chracters they are live people.
Gurren-Lagann is the anime that will define anime for centuries to come, believe it!
I just didn't like it. Maybe because it was not generic...
i cant understand, anti-GL trolling pasta or lines by a pathetic GLfag?
It ended with "believe it!"
Take a wild guess
This never made sense to me, form what I understood the anti-spiral stuck something in some DNA strand or some crap so they could control some kid a million years later wich just so happened to be her, then she evaporates or some shit and everyone is like "Well she WAS a computer program after all"
now i am going to feel sad all day
Welcome to my every day. ;_;
Complete Anti-Spiral Messenger explanation, for dummies, from the 7th Gurren-Lagann production mook:
Thousands of years before the show began, right after Genome's defeat, the Anti-Spirals conceded their enemies a chance to exist... so long they lived under the control of an extermination system installed in every planet they inhabited. Since the Anti-Spirals enclosed themselves in a reality beyond our own, they modified the DNA structure of one single spiral creature in each of the remaining civilizations.
This one creature would hold inside his or her double-helix the key to a control system that would annihilate life where it to achieve appropriate numbers for evolution. The existence of this creature after activating the extermination programming would be linked to the Anti-Spiral’s closed space and its psyche, linked to the hivemind would work as source of the mugann. Think of them as living antennae.
As for the reason it happened for Nia to be the messenger: in order to ensure the survival of the Anti-Spiral modified gene pattern, they made the carriers the more beautiful people so that their reproduction chances would be high. Knowing this, Genome created his harem from only the more beautiful females and used them as playthings, painlessly killing any children he had with them. That Nia, the one princess that actually survived, turned out to be the one carrying the Anti-Spiral code was a fatal coincidence.
And that is where babies come from... for machines.
>,linked to the hivemind, would work as source of the mugann.
Fixed my commas.
Those who didn't understand this the first time must be idiots. It's actually pretty obvious.
All that was explained in the anime, but I still don't see how killing one Anti-Spiral resulted on Nia blowing up like that.
She was linked to the hivemind.
So wouldn't she just become braindead?
Watch episode 22 again, her body was a product of her own psyche. She should have died right after the Anti-Spiral. The fact she held-up to the wedding was her "DOING THE IMPOSSIBLE" and "ROW ROW, FIGHTING THE POWER".
DOING THE IMPOSSIBLE and ROW ROW FIGHT DA POWER:
So easy Nia could do it.
In terms of impossible feats:
Kamina > Simon > Lord Genome > Nia > Kittan > everyone else >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Good end. Now go watch Lucky Star.
I think Genome should be number 1 for impossible feats, after all he FUCKING DIVIDED BY ZERO
sage for generic shounen.
Beyond that, Spirals are also agents of chaos. It's evident, even now. We like to burn our dinosaurs fossils, kill animals, kill trees, kill each other, dig stuff out of the ground, and generally engage in the very clean practice known as industry. What would happen should humanity ever escape its current confines and run amok throughout the universe? We'd be like this unstoppable force of entropy, vacuuming resources from planets and asteroids, gobbling energy by creating our own stars or just subjugating existing ones, and generally accelerating the level of decay all around us.
Spiral power is the desire to survive, whether that involves fighting, consuming resources, or multiplying. It exists even while doing so means that the necessities to that existence are slowly eroded. To an entity like the Anti-Spirals, Spirals are just out to consume the entire universe, and then die out when the job is done.
Indeed, Gurren-Lagann only used the Super Robot clichés superficially. The real themes behind the action and plot can't really be called "generic". The show is akin to a good Pixar movies: as mature as it is childish.
Let's take the Anti-Spirals. One can't completely write off them as simplistic bad guys, as we're offered from them an interesting, if brief, commentary on carbon-based life. It was probably brief because it's depressing to contemplate the big picture. Spirals are viewed as this grave threat to the universe because life does what life does: consumes and multiplies without consideration. It thus fell to the Anti-Spirals to put carbon-based life in its place, which is to say, in convenient and easy to manage boxes, with the threat of complete extermination to keep them from expanding outside of their boundaries. Eventually, in theory, the molten crust of the respective planets would cool, and they'd all die anyway, causing minimal additional damage to the cold and austere beauty of the universe.
It's a situation that plays out all the time, with humans in the role of Anti-Spirals, and weeds, pests, and even other humans in the role of Spirals. Trying to stem the vicious rampancy of growth and consumption sounds like a just and responsible thing to do, especially when described with terms like vicious and rampant, until the realization hits that doing so may involve some messy details, like inducing resource starvation or just plain death.
if she was doing the umpassable why counldnt she have stayed with simon till the end?
I thought by 'doing the impossible' it was 'trying your best no matter what' so you won't know what the outcome is but at least you tried.
Sage for me bullshitting.
I remember all that crap about "Oh I'm suprised she held on this long blah blah blah"
But wasn't she born through natural means? Didn't Genom knock some bitch up who gave birth to a solid baby? I still can't see how killing one anti spiral lord guy would result in all that Biology puffing into fairy dust!

That Anti-Spiral was the hivemind personified.
When you stop a signal the antennae doesn't fucking explode does it?
And I don't see how her existance depended on the Hive mind still being alive.
