    So I got home from school today, and decided to enjoy a bowl of lime ice cream while I watched episode 8 of the anime, Gurren Lagann. Or as it as also known as Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. IT WAS AMAZING!!!!! At first I was thinking it would be your average episode, that is, until Yoko finally confessed her feelings to Kamina. That was cute. Well Kamina is rather confused at first, but then he takes Yoko in his arms and they start making out. Simon, who has a huge crush on Yoko and was about to admit his feelings for her, happens to be watching from the bushes and feels rather betrayed, considering that he and Kamina are "brothers". After Yoko and Kamina are done locking lip, he tells her that he will repay her (for the kiss) someday. She says she looks foreward to it. Judging by Kamina's everday attidute and Yoko's apparel, I think they mean a home run. Well anyway, the next day is the big battle, and Simon is totally stressing over Kamina and Yoko's kiss. So therefore during the battle, he can't properly operate Lagann because of the stress. Meanwhile, Rossiu who is babysitting Gimmy and Dari, and Ron, who is managing all the Gunmen from the computer. Gimmy starts acting babyish and wants to help Ron, but Ron tells him that if he touches anything, that he (Ron) will "gobble him up". The guy who plays Orochimaru also plays Ron, so you can imagine how creepy that would sound. Well back at the battle, Kamina decides to break open Lagann's head, punch the crap out of Simon, and tell him to get his act together. It works, and as soon as Kamina is climbing back into Gurren, that freaking idiot gorilla general explodes him!!! Yoko, who always seems to be more worried about Kamina in fights than Simon, starts to freak out, and then Simon starts to freak out, and before you know it, everyone is freaking out!!! Kamina's screams of agony were unbearable. He was my favorite after all, and that made it even harder. I'm dead serious. I've never heard anything to awful in my entire life. But Kamina's not out yet. Despite being badly mangled and bleeding like there's no tomorrow, he and Simon combine to make Gurren Lagann and they take control of the big ship thing. And just as they think they've won, Viral and his army come back and smash them all up. But Team Dai Gurren comes out on top anyway. Everyone begins to celebrate and they know it's over and they've one. Kamina smiles, utters the phrase, "Later bro...", then Kamina dies and it is oh so sad!!! I'm gonna miss Kamina...moreless
