Men who /a/ tend to consider GAR usually are the ones that die, why? Because it's predictable for the badass hero to get the girl and win the day, triumphing against all odds and becoming gods.
But Kamina and Archer, they aren't gods, they're not heroes, they're just men. And that's what we love about 'em. They lived like men, they died like men, and faced death with conviction, strength, and a smirk in to Death's ever-grinning face.
