BEST GAINAX COUPLE or BESTEST GAINAX COUPLE
>>
>>10254851
When Nia saw the Kamina statues, she knew just how much Simon loved him and how important Kamina was to him. And seeing how he could feel so much for a person, Nia thought she could believe in him.

Nia is well aware that she doesn't know everything about her friends, but she tries very hard to learn more, and she continues believing in them because from her observations, she thinks they're trustworthy. Even when the Great Gurren Brigade were suspicious of her in the beginning, she told Simon that she still got a warm feeling from them and thought they weren't bad people. And Simon was always there for her where her father was not. When she found out her father just thought of her as a doll, Simon told her she should just live as herself, accepting her as a human being. After all that, why should she doubt him? That's just how she views things.

Her personality was about “questioning everything”, what everyone else considered an absolute she tried to actually understand. “Why are you fighting?”, “Why do you love me?” or the like. Beyond that, she had core motivations and her personal reasoning on the world. Actions like when she told Simon to use her hands as cushions for piloting Lagann or lines like “Farewell, Father. I’ll look towards tomorrow” or “As a matter of fact, we’re completely different persons. But I believe that thanks to these differences we will be able to live together” among others are clearly unique and meaningful.

tl;dr: Pay attention, any girl that loves a boy due to how much this boy loves another man = A+ in my book.

I was paying attention and I can see that the ideas behind her character were interesting but the way she was executed was boring and utterly uninteresting. Her past and link with Genome were downplayed, the way she had all the answers for Simon before the timeskip felt half-assed and timeskip Nia didn't have enough screentime to be properly developed.

What? She had no answers for Simon, he actually overcame his deal with Kamina due to Kamina's own words. Nia only provided Simon emotional support, nothing more.

Completely subjective.

Subtle is completely from downplayed.

Because development only comes in the shape of far-fetched introspective dialogs, right? No way they would actually use visuals to develop a character... that's unheard of!
>>
>>10255217
I did and 1 episode isn't really much you know. Her courage and abnegation were well done but it didn't really felt like "development" because she has always been like that.
>>
>>10255196

They really knows how to break my soul.
>>
>>10255233

It wasn't underdeveloped. Episode 11, 15 and 27 were packed full of development for their relationship.
>>
>>10255260

Development may also mean to "grow-up", actually. You want every character to go through epiphanies when only Simon did...
>>
>>10255275
Cheer up with a nice cold glass of refreshing milk!
>>
>>10255247
They used the visuals to develop every characters very well, that's one of the strength of Gainax after all but her past was definitely downplayed. There's a reason a lot of people felt like Nia wasn't really a good character you know and that's not because they are morons who can't recognize good development.

For Simon? Never heard of it. They are right for Viral though.
>>
>>10255326

Viral WAS underdeveloped. His motivations were uneven and his role was that of mere exposition.
>>
>>10255361

They're KaminaFAGS, though.
>>
>>10255361

Tengen Toppa would not be half the anime it is without Kamina, the thread that holds the entire fabric together. True, Simon is in fact the central protagonist, but the star quality Kamina brings to the plot is unrivalled. He is cocky, charming, invigorating, tragic, and fearless, a hero whose personality overshadows everything. In terms of charisma, he is probably outdone only by Goro Honda from Major.

Simon, on the other hand, did not show his mettle until quite late into the series. Much of the beginning and middle episodes were used to peel off the layers of his innocence one by one until what was left was the determined and, disappointingly, semi-charismatic core. He rode a powerful mecha and made some great speeches, but in the end I found him less exciting to watch than some of the others.
>>
>>10255338

A lot people actually keep crying on how Simon was "uninteresting" and "boring".

I like how this thread turned to shit after the other GL thread was deleted.
