is a young man from Jeeha, a subterranean village, who dreams of leaving the underground and going to the surface, a place which he alone believes he saw as a child. Possessing a seemingly arrogant personality, Kamina is very passionate about his goals and will pursue them without a trace.

History

Like all members of his village, Kamina has lived his entire life underground. As a young child, his father left, claiming he would go to the surface. Kamina only caught a glimpse of the surface world before returning underground himself. Later in life, he becomes obsessed with reaching the surface as well, conscripting young men from the village to help him.

Kamina eventually made it to the surface along with Simon, thanks to a well-timed (and accidental) invasion by a Gunman and a surface girl named Yoko. Once on the surface, Kamina learned that beastmen were attempting to destroy all human settlements and immediately re-established his Gurren-Dan. He, Simon, and Yoko venture to defeat the Beastmen and they make additional friends on the way.

Unfortunately, Kamina dies during a battle, but his death eventually helps give Simon the impetus needed to make him a true leader.

Personality

Kamina is a stranged mixed bag: he is usually bone-headed and clueless as to other people's opinions and feelings, but he has occasional moments when he makes astute observations that none of the other members of his party noticed. He generally plays the role of the cheerful, hot-headed idiot, firing up his teammates for battle. It is usually his inspirations that, while seeming stupid at first, unveil the team's next step forward, such as when he attempted to unite the Gurren and Lagann mechs by slamming the Lagann head onto the Gurren body-- which resulted in an actual merging of the two units after a moment of seeming worthless.

Kamina thinks of himself as an older brother to Simon, but at first find himself slightly out of his depth on the surface. He makes up for it with a cocky attitude and by not accepting things around him as simply "the way things are," preferring instead to strive for an ideal world. This concept of not settling for less and for reaching for the stars provides the overall theme of the series, in which the characters eventually decide to ignore that what they want may be practically impossible and try to get it anyway.

Gurren High School

Student Kamina
Student Kamina
A spinoff featuring the Gurren Lagann cast of characters as high school students began in 2008. In this version, Kamina is a nearby neighbor and best friend to the orphaned Simon, and still insists on being referred to as "Aniki" by him. He drags Simon around on a variety of adventures, while Simon wishes for a quiet and normal school life. He has sworn an oath to live life to the fullest, and acts as rashly as in the original series. He is considered the "number one" at his school, although Kittan frequently attempts to knock him off this podium.
