The year 2007 is ending and soon, a new timeline will begin in the form of year 2008.
While most of us might discard memories of yesteryear like nuclear waste, let us remember that sacrifices had been made, brothers lost and hearts broken in the 2007 anime season.
And now, let us reserve a moment of silence for a giant amongst man.
His name was KAMINA.
His confidence knew no end and it was with this confidence and his bare hands that he created the Gurren Brigade that would be the salvation of humanity.
But sadly, like all great men, he went before it was truly time for him to go.
(sigh, if only the male cast of Gundam00 could have some of his GARness)
I once heard a saying by a certain person. A true hallmark of a leader is grooming future leaders to succeed him. Kamina was the greatest leader in this sense for he turned Simon from an emoboy into a man worthy to carry on his legacy and liberate humanity once and for all.
And for all of the above Kamina, I salute you.
