Not sure why I wasted two days of my life making a blog about something you can look up on wiki but ok.

Before i post this there are a few tiny things you should bear in mind:
This post is for reasons for why I love the show not why you should love it therefore its my own oppinion buut im sure comunity here understands that.
Also I will be taking the series as a whole into account which means this is my oppinion on go, chrono stone and galaxy is olso included
Lastly this my oppinion on the anime only
OK one last thing tho its very obvious but it still has to be mentioned here
with that out of the way lets get to it
I was a year 2014. A young boy stumbles upon a certain over the top football anime. That boy is me and that anime is inazuma eleven. I initialy were drawn into to it by the flashy animation and most importantly the main character, but we'll get to that later. Right now lets get the big obvious elephants out of the way: animation and music.
I gotta say for a show that came out in 2008 the animation is actualy good. The series were animated by studio OLM by the way. Just thought I'd let you know. Anyway as with any long running anime animation steadily increased as the show went on. Ok check this clip from the second episode
Now let's fast forward to 2011. This is the date when inazuma eleven go was released. I'm not gonna get into detail about its animation, as i mention previously it had improved and instead im gonna show you some clips from go, then go chrono stone and the go galaxy.
Go Chrono Stone:
Now for the music. Oh boy the music. The music was composed by Yasunori Mitsuda. If you are a music nerd or just generaly curious you will also know him from chrono trigger, Xenogears, Mario Party and many other games as well as Black butler anime series. I'm gonna be honest, back when i was getting into inazuma i didnt really cared for the sound track, well not as much as recently atleast. Right now however i really started apreciating what a great soundtrack it is, and i dont see a reason why not, it's has some of the most badass track i've heard in sports anime or in general, but most importantly it has an amazing synergy with the action or the general moment.
TL;DR the music's awesome.
Now those two things do contribute to me loving the show, however now we get into the meat of the show. The action did certainly get me glued to my seat but what actualy made me not just really like the but love it were these 2 things:
These to things are the driving force of the show and what made it so enjoyable. From the very start to finish the series stresses how important team work is and and dedicates large portions of matches to show what happens atleast one member fails to cooperate with the team. All of the on-pitch character development is fulled by this. But the show goes beyond just team work, into friendship and unity. All of the players who have major roles or are mentioned to be very strong players in the series have relationship with their teammates beyond just. But the real beauty of unity is desplayed by the main team of the series - Raimon. Some might look at this and say that its just another "friendship is power" trope and while that is true the dufference here is that ii just works not to mention it is supported by another thing and that is passion. Passion - another gear to this show's engine...and it is beautiful to look at. That passion to never give up eventually and inevitably drew me in and kept me captivated, that passion was none other's than Endou Mamoru's. I remeber the very first episode i stumbled apon accidentaly, it was Raimon Jr High vs Zeus Jr High. Wen I saw Endou being beaten down by Aphrodite I was like "daaaaamn he's getting bodied" but that sparked my curiosity, i wanted to know what will happen next. So I watched. I watched Aphrotite beat him down again and again as Endou just kep getting up. I was so mooved i had no choice but to cheer for him. This is the power of passion. Hell it's not only Inazuma, plenty of sports anime. If anything inazuma has tought me an important thing - to some sport is sport to some its a passion. This doesnt apply strictly to sport either, it could be your everyday jobe and you could put as much passion into it as a sportsman or a sports fan. So i guess you could say im passionate about Inazuma eh?
Anyway i hope you enjoyed and until next time. Fado41 signing out!

Now with introductions out of the way lets get to analysis.
"My name is Lelouch vi Britannia, I am the eldest son of Empress Marianne, the prince who was abandoned by his empire. If anyone wishes to stop me, let them try, if there is anyone who can go beyond my despair."
Lelouch was born on December 5, 2000 a.t.b. as Lelouch vi Britannia the son of the Emperor of Britannia, Charles zi Britannia, and the late Imperial Consort Marianne, making Lelouch the Eleventh Prince of the Holy Britannian Empire. Being a member of a roiyalty and the main character of the series it wasnt long until his mother got shot to death making a nice cliche...oh were was i ? Oh yeah lelouch. So just just like any normal kid he went to his daddy only to have himself and his sister which was also crippled and BLIND AT THE TIME banished to japan where they were used as political hostiges, atleast until Britannia tookover Japan forcing him and his younger sister to seek help from Ashford family. Great fucking parents you have Lelouch! Anyway fast forward to a year 2019, Lelouch is now a 17 year old student at ashford academy. After getting in a crossfire between the japanese resistence group aka "the terrorists" dew to the series of events that i really dont want to get into, and getting the power of geass from a woman called C.C. (her real name remains a mistery to me to this day) he forms his own military force - "The Black Knights" and begins his quest to obliterate Britannia aka owning Britannias ass.
Physical streangh, indurence atc.
Physically, Lelouch is underwhelming. He possesses the physical prowess of a teenager who engages in little to no strenuous physical activity. Thus, one of Lelouch's traits is the inability to run very fast or for any substantial period of time. Within the series, this is usually played for comedic effect, as Lelouch is constantly outpaced by his classmates in every situation, and even the most simple tasks requiring manual labor exhaust him before he manages to accomplish anything significant. (Yes it's that short. Why? Because there is literaly nothing else to say about his physical stats. He sucks at this, its that simple)
Knightmare piloting skills
Lelouches Knightmare piloting skill has been shown only above average as it does require atleast some physical strengh to do it. While Lelouch uses Knightmares that have superior specs, he tends to be overwhelmed by Suzaku or other skilled pilots with faster models. When Lelouch pilots a standard Knightmare on the battlefield, he is typically accompanied by Kallen, who is an elite Knightmare pilot and the leader of his personal squad, Squad Zero. After commandeering the Gawain, Lelouch co-pilots it with C.C., controlling the weapons and command functions while C.C. handles navigation and flight. After the Black Knights are exiled from Japan, Lelouch pilots the Shinkirō, which has the most powerful defense of any Knightmare. He also shows a level of ambidexterity as he is able to control either side of the Shinkirō's keyboard-based controls with both hands. Though he could not defeat them, Lelouch managed to hold his own against the Knights of Round during the second battle of Tokyo.
"That was the turning point. Since that day, I've lived a lie: The lie of living. My name, too, was a lie. My personal history, a lie. Nothing but lies. I was sick to death of a world that couldn't be changed. But even in my lies, I refused to give up in despair. But now, this incredible power, it's mine."
Lelouch's Geass, bestowed upon him by C.C., gives him "The Power of Absolute Obedience", allowing him to plant commands within a person's mind upon eye contact in a manner comparable to hypnosis. Activation of his Geass is visually represented by the manifestation of a Geass Sigil in his left eye. Commands dictated in this state are written into the minds of the designated targets once the Sigil projects from his eye to theirs. Lelouch could initially toggle Geass activation at will, but subsequently lost this control and suffered from an affliction known as "runaway Geass" near the end of the first series, turning one of of the most lovable characters in the show into a mass murderer.
Of all the Geass abilities in the series, Lelouch's has been explored the most, and also seems to have the most restrictions and side effects of any Geass introduced:
- Only affects the nervous system.
- Commands must be issued verbally.
- The victim must make direct eye contact for commands to be issued. The maximum effective distance is 272 meters. Line of sight via a reflective surface is sufficient for the effect to occur.
- Commands may be issued only once to any given individual, but any number of commands may be issued at initial application so long as eye contact is unbroken. Since Jeremiah's Geass Canceller negates all Geass effects, those exposed to it may be commanded once again.
- The victim will not perform any action disallowed by their physical or mental capabilities, though they will try to carry out the command to the best of their ability. For example, a victim will not be able to correctly answer a question they don't know the answer to, but will direct the user to someone who can if they are able. However, commands that affect the mind or consciousness (such as erasing memories or casting a hallucination on a person) will take effect despite the fact that the victim could not normally force themselves to do so.
- An action will be carried out for as long as dictated in its command, or upon the indicated conditional circumstance. Eye contact does not need to be maintained for command execution to occur. No upper limit has been established, but the conditional command Lelouch gives Suzaku is still in effect more than a year later.
- The victim's memories for the duration of command issue and execution are sealed and cannot be recalled.
- As demonstrated in Princess Euphemia's response to the command that she kill the Japanese, a victim may resist a commanded action to some degree if it is morally incomprehensible to them.
So long as the above conditions are met, commands may be issued to anybody besides those that had gained an immortal code and to any number of individuals at once. Those under the effect of Geass have a red outline on their pupils, presumably a visual cue for the viewer since the characters never point it out.
Intellect, strategic prowess
"If the king does not lead, how can he expect his subordinates to follow?"
Even without his Geass, Lelouch is a formidable opponent. His greatest weapon is his prodigious mind, possessing a genius-level intellect, and is capable of devising and executing strategies with incredible speed and precision. As a teenager, he utilized his masterful skills in real combat, leading asmall band of terrorists to victory against overwhelming odds. He could manipulate people and factions with well-spoken speeches and clever deceptions. His intellect goes even further as he is able to bredict entire conversations with his opponents. His intellect is also shown when he was able to program the F.L.E.I.J.A. countermeasure in 19 seconds typing at a incredibly fast speed. Hell the video above is a proof of his tactical genius. Oh and he planned his own death to bring peace to the entire world
For knightmare frames i will be metioning only the last model the charcter, in this case lelouch, was using.
- Crew: One
- Height: 4.67 meters
- Weight: 8.06 metric tons
- Power Source: Yggdrasil Drive, Energy Filler
- Absolute Defense System
- Druid System
- Fortress Mode
- Integrated Air Glide System
- Landspinner Propulsion System
- Factsphere Sensor
- 2x Wrist-mounted Hadron Cannons (fires spherical-shaped blasts, not continuous beams).
- 1x Chest-mounted Diffusion Structure Phase Transition Cannon (can be fired without the prism for a concentrated attack) (Primary Weapon).
- 2x Slash Harkens concealed within both knees.
- 1x Chaff Deployment System
Shinkiro was the second and the last knightmare Lelouch ever used before his death. Shinkirō, piloted by Lelouch, made its operational appearance to protect Empress Tianzi and the Shen Hu against the Gun-Rus of the Chinese Federation using its Absolute Defense System and destroyed almost all of them using its Phase Transition Cannon. The Shinkirō then appeared in Lelouch's operation to destroy the Geass Order, and destroyed the Siegfried, which is piloted by V.V., with unexpected assistance from Cornelia. In this operation the Shinkirō is shown to be able to fire the Zero Beam without launching its prism. It also appeared in the Second Battle of Tokyo, in which its two primary weaknesses are shown: When engaged by the Mordred, Lelouch did not counterattack, as he had no melee weapons, but merely defended. Later, Knight of Ten Luciano Bradley exploited the Shinkirō's need to lower its shield before firing to damage its firing prism. Bradley and his Grausam Valkyrie Squadron would have destroyed Lelouch if not for the lightning-swift destruction of the Valkyrie Squadron by Kallen in her Guren S.E.I.T.E.N. Eight Elements. The Shinkirō is later used, albeit poorly, by Rolo Lamperouge to help Lelouch flee after the Black Knights turn on him in their flagship. Rolo could only erect a meagre defense using Shinkirō's Absolute Defense Field, and was only able to escape and outrun the Mordred due to his Geass. Lelouch would later continue to use the Shinkirō during his accention to Emperor of Britannia, and used it in conjunction with Suzaku's Lancelot Albion to prevent a F.L.E.I.J.A. warhead from detonating above Mt. Fuji. Lelouch then used the Shinkirō's shields to create an opening in the Damocles' Blaze Luminous, allowing the Lancelot, along with several other Knightmares, to enter the floating fortress. However, upon breaking in, Lelouch and Suzaku quickly encounter Gino in his new Tristan Divider. The Tristan briefly engages the Shinkirō in combat, but even the Absolute Defense System Shield proved insufficient against the Tristan's new swords fashioned from the Galahad's Excalibur. After realizing that he was outmatched, Lelouch tried advancing deeper into Damocles, but Tristan tosses one of his swords and it impales the Shinkirō in the back, immobilizing it. It ultimately blows up and is abandoned by Lelouch as he continues into Damocles.
Yes Lelouch conquered the world. He already created his own military force to stand against Britannia at the age of 17 grew it to match Britannias forces on Japan and they have established a lot of their military in Japan those Britannians. After regaining his memories he once again managed to reestablish the black knights, conquer the empire he was fighting against, become its king (of coarse he was betrayed by the black knights first) and lets not forget, yes conquer the entire world and bring peace to that same world by planning to die carrying the entire worlds hatered on his shoulders. OMG... Lelouch is jesus confirmed...
- Lead a small fraction of japans resistance movement to victory with limited recources against a much larger, better trained Britannian military force.
- Created, and expanded his own military force, that procieded to kick Britannias ass at the age of 17
- Took over the throne and Became the king of Britannia with little effort
- Actualy conquered the world
- Brought ever lasting peace to that same world
- Is incredably inteligent able to calculate and strategise waaaaaay faster than a regular human being.
- His geass power although it has limits is incredably potent weapon espeacialy with a mind like lelouches
- A great leader and a master planner capable of commanding an army to victory with ease
- is somewhat a decent knightmare pilot capable of holding his own even against the knight of the round
- Shinkiro's perfect defence sistem can protect against almost any attack
- Is short tempered and can easily make a mistake if out under enough pressure
- Though he has found ways to overcome his geass limitations it can still be exploited
- Even if he is a decent knightmare pilot he's nowhere close to the ace pilot levels
- He pilots a much slower knightmare than Suzaku or Kallen or any other ace pilot in the series with an exeption of Bismark
Char and Lelouch share similarities between them like: Both hide their identity, both against a nation they used to live in, both are master tactitians and both are leaders of theyr own armies. Lelouch was actualy based off of Char and i personaly would love to see this as an army match. This match up has my approval
Hello everyone thanks for reading make sure to leave a comment below. this was my first character annalysis on the new site and let me tell yah it was a pain. Anyway see yah on the next blog whenever i make one...

there are many variations, forms and uses of rage and there are many characters who use it. In the anime world, though, there is one that stands above the rest, one that makes others pale in comperison, one whose rage burns as hot as deepest pits of hell - Xanxus
Xanxus was born and spent his early childhood in an impoverished region of Italy with only his mentally ill mother to care for him. His mother discovered his Flame of Wrath when he was very young and brought him to the Vongola Ninth. When she and Xanxus confronted the 9th and Xanxus demonstrated the Flame of Wrath, the 9th accepted Xanxus and placed his scarf around the boy, agreeing that Xanxus was indeed his son even though he had never seen the woman or her son before. Years later he dicovers that he was just an adoptive son of the ninth and realises that he will never a rightful successor of Vongola family (thus the demon is born...) which leads to him rebeling against his ¨father¨ until he was frozen by him, a couple of years later he was freed from the ice block by some mistirious person (and definitly not mammon).
Xanxus is cruel and ruthless, and shows no mercy to enemies and allies alike. Initially, he showed no remorse or sadness when his subordinates died, as he only saw them as disposable tools to help him gain the title of Vongola 10th, but since his defeat at the hands of Tsuna, Xanxus has appreciated his subordinates more. He can be short-tempered, easily angered even by small mistakes such as his subordinates bringing the wrong food, resulting in him beating them up or throwing things at them. He has a lot of confidence in his strength and power, and thus, often looks down on his enemies, referring to them as trash.
Abilities & Powers
Modeled after the wrath demon himself Xanxus is whole new meaning of deadly he utilise dying will flames a super condenced energy flames, initialy there are seven types of these flames sky, storm, sun, rain, lightning, cloud and mist how ever Xanxus has an extremely rare variation of sky flames the flames of rage whitch appear only in individuals with extreme amounts of rage. with the flame he can achieve unbilievable feats like turning reinforced conrete into smoke but thats not all because he can equip his dual pistols to amp up his game and increase the range of his abilities :
- Scoppio d'Ira (Burst of Wrath): Xanxus unleashes a barrage of Flame simultaneously that, because of their density and grouping, appear to fuse together into one large super-powerful blast.
- Bocciolo di Fiamma (Bud of Flame): Xanxus uses one gun to fly around the target and the other to shoot his target from different angles to form a flower bud at the target's feet
- Colpo d'Addio (Blow of Farewell): A stronger version of Scoppio de Ira where Xanxus charges up energy in his guns and fires two super-powerful shots with the same or more power than Scoppio de Ira
- Martello di Fiamma (Hammer of Flame): The strongest version of Scoppio d'Ira and Xanxus' strongest move
And thats not all he can use his gun to frikin fly. He can reach supersonic speeds and easily treverse the skies.
and if thats not enough he has a frikin lion for a pet (if that not a feat of badassnes i dont know what it is) whitch he can fuse with his guns to power up even more. his pet lion can also use sky flame to turn people into stone, destroy them afterwards using the storm flames and even turn into a tiger aperantly because why the hell not .
and last but not least rage empowerement i think its self explanatory Xanxus gets enraged and get a huge power boost.
But while rage does empower him it is also his downfall as a character because when hes enraged he looses all rationality as he scream like a DBZ character rather then actualy thinking before charging in also through out the series he allways seemed like a sore loose siriously you can beat this guy 1000 times and he still wouldnt admit that he lost. Ok i´ll honest i had a real hard time finding any weaknes that Xanxus could have and ive only managed to come up with few that ive listed earlier
All in all Xanxus is not the guy you want to mess with he might loose all rasionality becose of his rage but he can also destroy hotels with the share force of his rage
so if your looking for a demon of rage whose rage can level cities then look no further than Xanxus
Hello readers i hope you enjoyed my first work i´ll be doing more of these so you have something to look foreward to. Anyway dont forget to leave a comment i´d love to hear your opinion and i see you in the nex artcle .

Death Rant: Anime soccer is op
Sooooo anime is wide medium, i think we can all agree to that as there's anime about almost anything: "ninjas", ninjas, "pirates", boring ass real life, zombie apocalipse, basketball, boring ass real life in highschool, boring ass real life...moe edition, and soccer. Oh yes soccer, animes nr 1 sport because aperantly it has to be on almost every anime series, be it shonen
yes that was an actual episode -_-
slice of life because.........moe.
C-come on guys. Digimon? Fucking digimon? I-I don't even...
Any way, while its true that anime creators have nack for putting soccer in their animes (a lot), they also have a nack for making soccer specific animes qiote op. Lets take for example Inazuma Eleven, oh boy is it op. lets take a look at the series first match
and we are kicking off (haha get it kicking off. no? never mind) with a bang. Oh but thats just a start! Later on in the series is when the shit realy hit the fan. Let's take a look at the finals
Oh that not op enough for you ok then how about this then. There's a few clips from second season:
I believe i've just proven my point, though even with all that crazy shit i still love it, a lot of people do actualy. It brings much more exitement to the boring'ol soccer and besides this is anime for fuck sakes if it's not exagerating the daily life situations it's probably turning the most mundain thing into the most op one. But hey its just soccer guys!
Wellp thets it for this blog, this is my first rant so comments would be greatly apriciated aaaand hit the ending!

Throughout the anime i´ve noticed there are 2 types of villains that are the most common a villain who tries to take over the world or a vilain who tries to become a god *caugh* Light Yagami *caugh* and then comes Byakuran a marshmellow eating mafioso with power of mind over the multiverse and smug (and creepy) smile that will leave you petrified for sure. Now its time to find out whether this head honcho actualy stands up to his name.
Byakuran is the former Boss of the Gesso Famiglia and the current leader of the Millefiore Famiglia. Due to the actions committed by his future-self, he is considered the main antagonist of the Future Arc. In the present, he is chosen as Yuni's representative in the Representative Battle of the Rainbow.
Initially, his aim was to obtain the "Ultimate Power" (Tri-ni-set) by gathering the Vongola Rings, Mare Rings, and Arcobaleno Pacifiers together in one place; he has a portrait with a slot for each item. To achieve his goals, Byakuran has ordered the complete extermination of the Vongola Famiglia, even targeting their friends and allies. He had a special radiation released into the atmosphere in order to kill all Arcobaleno members which was called Non Tri-ni-Set. Before the appearances of young Tsuna and his friends in the future, Byakuran had been researching them, as well as time travel, in order to get ahold of the Vongola Rings, which had been destroyed in his time. According to Shoichi, Byakuran's power can only be used during certain circumstances and that their era's unique events are what created his power. He has the ability to communicate with every other Byakuran that is in a different parallel universe, giving him the knowledge and experience he gained from countless worlds.
During his first appearance in the Future Arc, he is shown to have a cheerful disposition around his subordinates, especially toward Shoichi Irie, even though he knew of the latter's betrayal. However, this is only if they hold his interest, hiding his ruthlessness and cruelty behind. Once he "gets bored" of someone, he won't hesitate to have them killed. He will do anything to achieve his goal, not caring if it would mean sacrificing innocent people or destroying the world and even referring to them as his toys.
In the present time, however, after his future-self was defeated by Tsuna, Byakuran seems to have had a change of heart even though he still retains his carefree and easy-going personality.
Powers and ablities
Due to Shoichi (that idiot) accidentaly meating two versions of Byakuran, Byakuran is now conected to every other version in all the parallel universes therefore making him a... know it all ? Any way not only does he share knowledge through the parallel universes but hes also in possetion of mare ring which lets him use dying will flame a powerful concentrated flame like energy which greatly empowers him his . Theres a list of his abilities:
Wings: Byakuran's scars on his back have been revealed to be space for him to grow a set of White Wings made of Dying Will Flames (however, these are possibly only for appearance's sake, as he already has Flame Boots). They also seem to be a result of looking into parallel worlds. Once torn off, they grow back as a black pair capable of morphing into claws. Byakuran's final attack can be compared to Tsuna's X-Burner, only with black Flames. However, Byakuran grows roots from his back that shoot out of his legs to support him during this attack instead of using a Flame
White Applause: (???, Shirohakushu) Byakuran can negate any attack by clapping his hands. This technique requires a certain degree of power to match the opponent's attack, however, as Byakuran's palms were injured when he tried to negate Tsuna's more powerful Burning Axel
White Finger: (??, Shiroyubi) Byakuran simply focuses Sky Flames from his ring and launches a powerful shockwave type attack that blasts his opponent with tremendous force from his finger.
Transparent Giant Hand: Byakuran is able to create a giant hand which is linked to his own, to capture the enemy from a distance.
Black Flame Attack: Byakuran grows roots from his back that shoot out from his legs and plant themselves in the ground in order to stabilize him. Next, Byakuran concentrates Black Flames from his hand which rotates at an extremely high speed and then releases them as a blast.
Healing: Due to the vast knowledge he gained from the Parallel Worlds, Byakuran knows extensive healing techniques. His skill in this area is so great that he could completely heal a person who's condition is critical enough for regular doctors to give up hope.
Now as for the weaknesses well, in the anime Byakuran was never shown to have any direct weaknesses however he tend to be a bit overconfident and does show to loose his cool when things arent going his way both of which lead to his demise
All in all Byakuran is a truly fearsome man dispite his chearful attitude and his obsesion with marshellows (especialy his obsesion with marshmellows) yes he might smug and overconfident, yes he might seem like just another guy with a god complex but no one and i mean no one is live up to the man that Byakuran (and his marshmellows) are.
*gasp* well hello readers and thanks for well reading this oh and make sure to leave a comment and mabe Byakuran sama will share some of his marshmellows with you :D any way ill see you next on my article

There are some truly batshit insane anime out there and believe it or not but Guren Lagann is one of those anime as such it need a character to stand above the crowd and so comes Kamina a guy who never gives up, never runs away, fight the impossible and does the undoable (whatever the hell that even means). Now before you start geting any ideas let me just tell you that theres more to Kamina than meets the eye. Lets just move on and you´ll see what i mean.
Kamina (??? Kamina?) was a young man from Jeeha Village, the founder and first leader of Team Gurren and deuteragonist of the first arc of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. As a child, Kamina's father managed to reach the surface, and although he wanted his son to come with him, Kamina was too scared of the strange world awaiting him, so his father allowed him to stay behind, promising him they'd meet again someday. This is likely what motivated Kamina to become strong and determined. Years later, Kamina decided he was old enough and began to aim for the surface.
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 undetterable idealist, often to the point of ignorance. Kamina is also very perverted, declaring that the urge to stare at beautiful women is the definition of a man. Kamina is also extremely determined who never lets anything keep him down for long. Even discovering that his father was dead only solemned him 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 insane actions, Kamina is fairly insightful, as his bombast and seemingly blind confidence usually mask his true intelligence in planning and combat. 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.
Weapons and Skills
Kamina originally had a nodachi (his sword), that he had stolen from the Jiiha village chief. In episodes 2 and 3, Kamina used a pistol given to him by Yoko, and he also used her rifle to hunt animals. During his fight with Viral, he used his Nodachi, and a hidden arrow that he had picked up from an animal Viral shot, as well as some assistance from Simon and Yoko. Kamina's most valuable weapons were the Gurren and Gurren Lagann. Originally, Kamina couldn't pilot the Gurren as well as a Beastman, which put him at a disadvantage: Viral could easily beat him one on one until Gurren Lagann was formed. However, thanks to training with Simon, by episode 8, he had mastered the controls and was an ace pilot. As for the skills:
- Expert Physical Fighter: As shown a number of times, Kamina's fighting skills are well above those of normal humans. He was able to fight Viral one on one with his Nodachi and, while injured, landed a blow on Viral. He also is shown to be a good fist fighter: one of his punches caused Simon to almost flip over in his seat.
- Quick Learner: Although not very obvious, Kamina is shown to be a quick learner. By episode 3, wherein he begins using ranged weapons, Kamina's accuracy impresses even Yoko, an extremely skilled sharpshooter. Having stolen his nodachi from the village chief in the first episode, he was able to use it rather well, pushing even Viral, an expert in combat (being a beastman and a well trained soldier). By his last episode, he had also become a very skilled gunman pilot, able to rival Viral in his piloting skills, despite having only used Gunmen for a short time.
- Mastermind: Kamina, though masked by his hot blooded personality, is a good tactician, contributing to his ability as a leader. His battles often involve a development of new fighting style, unpredictable and well planned moves. He is able to see his opponents' weak points, or the most effective way to beat them - such as hijacking Dai-Gunzan and the Gunzar on the field (which later became Dai-Gurren and Gurren respectively) rather than fighting them, and taking note of the field condition when fighting against Dai-Gunzan for the first time. Compared to the way the Brigade fights after his death, battles during his leadership involved more complex planning.
- Endurance and Reflexes: Kamina's skill in a fight relies heavily on his stamina. Kamina has been shown to be able to take blows that would kill most people and continue fighting. The greatest example of this is shown when he is stabbed twice by Thymilph, yet manages to recover for a bit and kill him first. This extreme endurance isn't enough to defy death entirely, however: he succumbs to his wounds and dies soon afterwards. Kamina is shown to have great reflexes, at one point dodging an arrow Viral shot at him.
- Fighting Spirit: His 'fighting spirit' is an extremely powerful force in the show. His charisma and bravado inspire his teammates to perform at the top of their ability, and allow him to support the under-confident Simon when his willpower flags. It is also stated that Kamina was killed by Thymilph's first assault, implying that his fighting spirit allowed him to stay alive long enough to ensure the success of the mission and essentially avenge himself.
Even if Kamina is a great smart and strong leader he does have tendencies of gooffulness and recklesness and to be honest pure stupitidy some times also it is worth stating that hes not super human or something and can and has died from a single well placed hit to his gurren and he died after 8 EPISODES before geting any developent at all (i blame you Gurren Lagan)
Even with recklesness and some times stupitidy Kamina doesnt stop being one of the coolest and most epic characters in gurren lagan if not the anime, its exactly his determination, stubborness and charisma that set foudation for team Dai - Gurren, and made Simon a clone of Kamina, and its exactly his stupitidy that gave us the funnies moments in Gurren Lagann and if you dissagree then just who the hell do you think you are.
Well that was fun i didint expect to write it so soon any way thanks for reading and hey make sure to leave a comment its alway nice to get some constructive criticism and i see you next time

1459, Florence, Italy. A child was born to the Auditore family. He was named Ezio, Ezio Auditore da Firenze. Now fast forward 17 or 18 years to the future. Ezio is living a happy, not so peaceful life aaaand is completely unaware that his father belongs to a secret orgnization call the order of assassins...well unaware untill he sees his daddy and his two broders hanged infront of a large crowd and by none other but his fathers close friend. After seeing his father being horribly murdered right infront of him he did what any other sane person would do at the time like this, ran the hell away...to Spain. On his way there however, he ran into a little trouble luckly his uncle Mario came into his rescue...and explained everything about the order of assassins. And thus began Ezios life as an assassin, his his journey through Italy and his battle against templars, freeing many cities from templars influense and before he knew it he was an old man.
As an assassin Ezio has quite a wide array of equipment. The most notable and the most iconic piece of equipment is the hidden blade. Ezio carries two hidden blades, one used to belong to Ezio's father, the other is a replica made by Ezio's buddy Leonardo da Vinci. He also made several modifications to hidden blade like making hidden blade capable of injecting poison, adding a musket shot to it and a poson dart launcher.
