>>9452512>After Nia was introduced, Simon turned into some faggot pussy.
What? If he was a pussy at any time, it was before he met Nia.
Simon is much more GAR than most people give him credit for. People block it off because he's a main character and such, but think about it.
He was always fine with being a quiet, kind person. Yet he fought for the rights of other people. Not once did he fight for himself. And he never gave up too, to the point of trying to fight off a ganmen without using the Lagann so Nia could run away in time.
When the Arc-Gurren lifted off, and Simon was in jail, he smiled. And it was because he thought that everyone was safe. That's all he cared about.
In the end, after saving everything that fucking exists, he went home. He'd lost the 2 people he loved, Nia, the only woman he could ever love. He lost Kamina, the only friend he truly loved. Not only that, he lost the ability to fight, because if he continued, he would cause the Spiral Nemesis. And he knew he wasn't a good leader, he was just a fighter, so he gave rule of Earth to Rossiu.
tl;dr, he gave up everything that matters to him. His ability to fight for others. The people he loved. Everything. And he didn't get anything out of it. And he's still happy living with it.
