Thank you to everyone, but especially thank you to my most recent 100 followers. Affinity for Anime just crossed the 700 mark.
Keeping with the tradition of these Gurren Lagann planeswalkers, I want to do things that haven’t been done in real Magic. Kittan starts out as a wannabe. A follower living in Kamina’s shadow, who wants to prove he also has what it takes. And in the end, he awakens to his potential and plays a vital role in the antispiral war. To represent this, Kittan is a creature that transforms into a planeswalker.
His creature abilities are meant to capture his persistence–throwing himself into battle. But once he punches through the enemy line, watch out. His planeswalker abilities show his diversionary tactics to save the other members of the Gurren Brigade. And just when you think all hope is lost, he makes the ultimate sacrifice and the onslaught can begin.

I decided to represent Nia as blue because when she is found by Simon, she has a curiosity about the world and a desire to learn more about it after being abandoned by her father. She also wants everyone to get along, so I’ve represented this part of her personality through three abilities that give equal treatment to all players.
For her transformation trigger, I thought about doing something that would reference one million–the number of people that would have to be living on the planet to bring about an antispiral attack. But I settled for ten–a more manageable, reasonable and logical number.
She then becomes Antispiral Nia and all of her abilities reverse as her personality and allegiance turn to the enemy and her clock slowly ticks down to the end.
