#Encodergasm Presents Gurren Lagann #Encodergasm Presents Gurren Lagann I can't do it I can never be like you, Bro They seek out the light, even though only death awaits them.
It is enough to make me despair at the nature of these creatures called humans.
The Spiral King's daughter Nia.
Hail fellow well met! Why are you the same as I am? You have no tail, nor fangs or scales.
A meeting amidst despair.
Your skin is soft, as well.
Well, that's only natural.
I'm a human being.
"Human being"? Right.
A human being.
A human.
A person.
And what, exactly, is a human? How do you do? My name is Nia.
And what is your name? Enemy pursuit.
There's no escape, human scum.
I know that voice Wha? That idiot, is she trying to get herself killed? Stop this, Adiane! First Princess Nia, daughter of Spiral King Lordgenome, orders you! Leave us, Adiane the Elegant! Are you aware of who I am? Termination orders.
You piss me off, you flake! If you wanna go, take your own sorry ass there! Do you hate me, as well? Hate you? I couldn't care less about you.
I was told to kill you, so that's what I'm going to do! Then if my father told you to die, would you do that, as well?! You are wrong! These people have done nothing wrong! Don't you think that there is something wrong with that? NO, I DON'T! Your father says he has grown tired of you.
Like a doll? I'm told that you asked him, "Why was I born?" That was a bad move.
His Majesty detests human self-awareness.
The valley of discarded princesses.
Who can blame him? Why would a puppet, a plaything, need self-awareness? I am just like that doll That's right.
And once he grows tired of them, they're discarded.
Just like you were Simon will protect me.
Simon.
You aren't your Bro, Simon.
I think you should just be yourself.
Listen, Simon.
Never forget this.
Believe in yourself.
Not in the Simon that I have faith in.
Not in the Kamina that you believe in, either.
- Believe in the Simon who believes in you! He won't lose to the likes of you.
He will never lose to the likes of you! Nia! I'm here to rescue you! Come on! Simon! Sorry I took so long.
I understand now! So do I.
Thank you, Simon! My Bro is dead.
He's gone.
But he's on my back! In my heart! He lives on as part of me! Believe in yourself! If you're gonna dig, dig to breach the heavens.
Even if it's my own grave I'm digging, I keep going! Once I've dug my way through, that means I've won! What? What are you talking about? Who the hell do you think I am? I'm Simon.
I'm not my Bro, Kamina.
I'm ME! Simon the Digger! Finishing Move! That move, it was GIGA DRILL BREAK! The invincible drill.
Put Nia down! General Adiane! No you don't! The power of the spiral.
Reawakened humans Damn you, Gurren Lagann! Damn! Damn! DAMN! go on the offensive.
The time has finally come to demonstrate my power.
Spiral King Lordgenome, watch closely! All units, advance! A route.
It worked! How can this be?! How can I be losing to a mere human cub?! What are humans? Do you really wish to know the answer? Do you, Viral? Yes! I can never be you, but I'm going off to do what only I can do.
The things that only Simon the Digger can do.
Towards the final battle What's the matter? Has your Spiral run dry? Simon! Simon, if our faith in you is what gives you your strength, then I'll believe in you with all my heart! So, please! Win! The Spiral King, Lordgenome I haven't had this much fun in a long time, boy.
Now, back into the dirt with you! A Core Drill?! And that something is my drill! I see Your Spiral power outstripped my own.
Lordgenome I will leave you with this warning.
When the land comes to overflow with a million apes, the moon shall become Hell's messenger and destroy the world of the Spiral.
What do you mean?! Father! Farewell, Father.
I will walk towards tomorrow.
The royal capital Teppelin falls.
Humanity has broken through the heavens.
