KAMINA JIHA
PERFECT COMBUSTION OF MANLY SOULS

"Whether impossible or laughable, we walk the path of men!"


Kamina was a young man from Giha Village, the founder and first leader of Team Gurren and deuteragonist of the first arc of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.







At first glance, Kamina is boisterous, hotheaded and arrogant. He demands recognition and seems hungry for greatness, illustrated in his tendency to call himself "the Mighty Kamina" and his signature catchphrase, "Just who the Hell do you think I am?!" He is an undeterred idealist, often to the point of ignorance; Yoko has described him as "a man of unlimited stupidity." Kamina is also very perverted, declaring that the urge to stare at beautiful women is the definition of a man.







However, Kamina is also extremely determined and never lets anything keep him down for long. Even discovering that his father was dead only made him solemn for a night or two (visibly at least). He is also devoted to defending and supporting his friends and loved ones, fighting with all his strength to protect them. In turn, he is very charismatic in the heat of battle, able to inspire even the timid Simon to accomplish great feats and almost single-handedly set the foundations for Team Dai-Gurren.

Despite his often brazen and practically insane actions, Kamina is fairly insightful, as his bombast and seemingly blind confidence usually mask his true intelligence in planning and combat. He even personally admits that his bravado and fearlessness is mostly a device he uses to hide his own worries and to support others, and that he thinks people like Simon are the real heroes. He has stated that his drive in the war against the Beastmen was not started for personal glory or vengeance, but a desire to give future generations a world without fear. Despite his often moronic actions, he does have some level of common sense, pointing out that fleeing from Dai-Gunzan would leave them wide open to attack. All this confirms that Kamina has a much more complicated personality than his usual behavior would insinuate.

In short, Kamina is the coolest fictional character ever written. He's brave, he's loud, and always kept his word even in his dying breath. His design is fucking awesome, tribal patterns and flames ftw. His quotes and lines of thinking may seem dumb as dirt, but you can't say they're not entertaining as shit. Bro was fucking born to be in the spotlight, and he understands the true definition of what it means to be a man rather than whatever lame corny shit your granddad says about landownership and high salaries.



GIVE IT UP FOR MY MOTHERFUCKIN BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
