I agree with Kittan's death being noble, but I can't attest to the others dying. A lot of them died for no reason. It was a bit ridiculous how many characters they killed in an episode.

I do agree that Simon was more of his own character before the timeskip, he actually kept the same personality and mindset throughout the whole first arc. At the same time though, I did like Simon in GAR mode, it brought back the manliness of the show. I'll be honest, he was pretty bad ass. I enjoyed it all regardless of the plot-holes in Simon's character.

Nia, Nia, Nia..... Such a failure of an ending in my opinion. They had no reason to kill her, it was such a stupid decision. The ONLY thing that was good was the final picture of Simon walking into the sunset. It gave me an amazing wallpaper
