DIE LIKE A MAN GODDAMMIT by dovianax DIE LIKE A MAN GODDAMMIT by dovianax
******* SPOILERS AHEAD!!!*******

Only a few animated character deaths have shaken me in my life, and weirdly enough some of them were robots! It's no secret how I feel about Optimus Prime's death, but before he, as a little boy I cried when Mazinger-Z was destroyed, only to have the punk-ass Great Mazinger come out and replace him. Maes Hughes was another recent one that choked me up (in the first anime, the second one kinda rushed his character and thus his death didn't hold the impact it should have). And even though I didn't cry when Kittan died, the sheer BAD-ASSITUDE and awe inspiring size of his balls when he makes that final sacrifice just overwhelmed me, especially considering it came from a second string character in the show. I should be so lucky as to create such a bad ass way for one of my characters to die, and to say Gurren Lagann was a BANANAS FUCKING SHOW would be an understatement of insulting proportions.

This is the last print I'll make for Metrocon this coming weekend, so if you wanna get your hands on a signed copy of this baby, get your asses up there!!!!

'Till then... Kittan, we salute you!!!

Agreed, Kittan's death was epic, the perfect warrior's sacrifice

I also cried when Optimus Prime died, no character death since then except the death of Beast Wars Dinobot affected me as strongly as his did when I was a kid, totally caught me off guard

And I agree that while Fullmetal Brotherhood is more accurate with the manga than the first FMA anime, that Hughes death in that version was a bigger shock to the system as it were.

I personally think that Kittan's death was way more badass than Kamina's for two reasons; he didn't die against a bad guy introduced last episode, and his giga drill break was WAY bigger than Kamina's.

:iconffffplz: his death shook me more than Kamina's and that is saying something HE JUST PWNS Damnit Kittan why the fuck did you have to get yourself killed!

dovianax Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2010
Indeed!!!

Kamina Died like a punk-ass at the hands of a pig of all things, and this only happened because Simon was a little bitch about seeing Kamina Kiss Yoko. That death was just a consequence that will haunt Simon and turn him into who he will eventually become. But Kittans death was a sacrifice resulting in him stepping up to do what Yoko almost willing to do. Even though both deaths had meaning and a purpose to the story, you can't help but to be angered by Kamina's death and be inspired by Kittans.
