So do you think we'll get some actual killing (no pun) done in this show now that she doesn't need Satsuki to tell her jack about who murdered her father?
>> No. 85919
Didn't Gamagoori kill the one guy who stole a one-star uniform? His corpse was hanging in front of the school when Ryuuko go there.

And I doubt Ryuuko will manage to kill this new girl. The gripe with her is so personal that she'll probably end up being a recurring antagonist in the second half of the show.
>> No. 85920
Since she's (ostensibly) the revenge target and wields the same weapon, she'll probably either be the 2nd to last to go down (so Ryuko gets the full scissor set before taking out Satsuki's mom) or the very last (Ryuko vs her in the crumbling Revoks HQ).

There is nothing about this episode I don't like.

I expect Nui'll replace Nonon for most of the yuri doujins. :I Fah! As for the other scissor, the color and design is different from Ryuko's. While having a mis-matched pair would be nothing new to anime, I think the scissor is a different one and Nui pulled it out and claimed she was the killer to get Ryuko to berserk and hold nothing back. Ryuko will win, and with the final blow will find out that Nui is not her father's killer, nor is that the proper half. As Grand Couturier (which is a term for a private tailor-slash-designer, apparently), I would expect her to have scissors on her at all times, like Inamuta has his laptop.

So the shit has certainly hit the fan, but I think there's more shit and a larger fan ahead. I am kind of disappointed that we didn't get a Round 3 with Sanageyama, though.
>> No. 85926
Damn I can't wait for the OST to come out. That track when Ragyo emerges from the bath is amazing, as is the Nui's theme, or whatever that is playing at the end when Matoi goes apeshit.

I'm surprised that I didn't notice it either now that you've pointed it out.

Now I'm imagining an alternate-universe spin-off where Gamagoori lands the job as "Headmistress" of the girls' dormitory at Honnouji Boarding Academy, a prestigious school for those advancing in the business world. Satsuki is there because of her mother, Nonon is in under a musical scholarship, and Mako got in because of a computer error. Series opens with Ryuko wandering onto campus and being challenged by Mako, who is trying to distract people from the computer error (her monthly stipend, given to all students, is sent to her parents) and prove she is "Honnouji material" by taking care of the "street ruffian" who "broke in." She loses, of course, but since no one saw she offers to help Ryuko stay on campus in exchange for not telling anyone she lost.

Gamagoori spends the series trying to figure out why he's the Headmistress, chasing down Mako and trying to make her a lady, prove that Ryuko doesn't belong and kick her out for good, and deferring to Satsuki when she's involved. When he's not beating himself with whips. None of the girls have any affection for him, nor he they, it's just about the antics.

You could kill two birds with one stone by having them form an inverse sentai team (which is often seen with four males and a female) based around school uniforms (which, here, are fairly standard affairs, and not their personal clothing as seen in KLK.)

also it lasted for seven minutes and i think that's a good length, i don't like it when battles last for the entire episode
>> No. 85971
BY your logic, Naruto is the best anime ever made because the fight against Whoever-the-fuck Uchiha (I seriously can't even remember his name) has lasted roughly 110 episodes and will probably last that much more.


While I'm not a big fan of the "Kill la Kill is saving anime" meme, but you're exactly the kind of person Kill la Kill came to save anime from. Overlong horseshit shonen battles are the goddamn cancer eating anime from within. I don't give a shit about "Man of Steel" levels of destruction porn unless they serve to forward the story in a meaningful way. Because that's what's important; Story and characters. And the battles should be nothing more and nothing less than a way to advance those two things. If you start making your battles more important to the story than the actual story, you wind up with Naruto, Bleach and DBZ.

Is the really what you want with Kill la Kill?
>> No. 85972

In my defense, I', farily drunk right now. and have been since around noonish or so.

>> No. 85976
These characters aren't meant to be deep, just broad with a defining quirk that implies depth. The story's not much to write home about either besides the clothing gimmick. Remember how much of a drag Gurren Lagann was when the second arc began? It took them fucking forever to get into space and get into the galactic skirmishes. That's one of the reasons that the badass movie version is superior. All that time spent on chatter could've been spent on refining the action, making it more elegant and robust, free from plot holes, filler and inconsistencies that could break audience immersion. Sloppily done action is why the spectacles in Man of Steel were so incompetent, it's idiotic ambitions to appear "real" despite how fantastic the concept of Superman is, mired the venture with confused tones and haughty conceits, killing the energy and heroism even when something was actually happening. I don't want episodes of stalling like those adaptations keep shoving down viewer's throats, I want things to get to the point. But a battle under ten minutes for a mid-series finale after all that build-up is bound to underwhelm.

Wow that sure is a lot of wrong statements about Gurren Lagann.
>> No. 85979
Even the statement about Man of Steel is wrong--that movie was bad because they didn't understand the rules of plotting, not because of how the action scenes were handled--the action scenes were actually pretty well done.
>> No. 85980
The problem with them stems from length, like Obi-Wan versus Anakin or King Kong's running from everything scene or the Jungle scene in Idiana Jones 4.

Just constant action yet nothing is actually happening for WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY to long. Fucking Man of Steel was terrible holy shit.

Ryuuko might lose Senketsu for an episode or so.

The most precious of babbies.
>> No. 86001
Life Fiber bullet is shot at Nui instead, it does nothing or makes her more powerful, Ryuuko gets her ass kicked, and either Satsuki or Rainbow Bitches steps in at the last moment to save her life and take Senketsu (>>85999).

(Complete speculation) However, since Ryuuko defeated the E4, she is now part of the E4 herself (Inamuta gets relegated to a 2-star) and finally learns some truths in addition to getting a 3-star uniform.
>> No. 86002
Thinking about it from Nudest Beaches' perspective they seem to think of Senketsu is the greater danger even in light Nui's appearance because as a Anti-Kiryūin organization they would already know about Nui yet Mikisugi still seems to prioritize Senketsu as a bigger threat than the threat his organization was created to stop.

My guess is Nui is actually the one in over her head and she'll kick Ryuko around for a while taunting her with her Dad's death which pushes to evolve Senketsu even further to the point that they go full "Venom" with no control, Nui gets scared and reveals the truth which stops them in their tracks just long enough to get shot, then some crazy shit I can't predict for about three minutes leading to a cliff hanger for the week.

Is she actually going to kill anyone? The series is halfway finished and Gangurogoori has a higher body count than her. Simon had all ready killed dozens, if not hundreds, of sentient beings at this point of his show.

I get the pun, yeah, but when's Ryuuko gonna do something lethal to her foes? Letting the Devas live is going to bite her in the ass now, as Satsuki's going to give them new uniforms with which to beat her up with again.

Nui is probably going to have to die at some point. Whether that's going to be by Ryuko's hand or not though, who knows.

Also, wow, people (mainly /a/) do no like prospect of romance happening in cour 2.
>> No. 86049
People on 4chan have a kneejerk to romantic plots regardless of the compatibility of the characters participating, the appropriateness to the story, the intended message of the pairing, or even the necessity to the plots. They probably complained about FE:A having romance in it, despite being absolutely necessary to the central conceit.

4chan is very prone to focusing on tangible details at the expense of any real understanding of storytelling, and basing their complaints on that. They see badly written stories that have romantic subplots, and so they tell themselves that the romantic subplots are the reason the stories were bad.

This comes from 4chan's collective belief that they actually have some level of expertise at critical theory, and in their ability to determine why a show does or doesn't work. They do not. They are only able to tell that something doesn't work, and even when they do that, they tend to circlejerk it into being much worse than it actually is because of how much positive feedback they get from complaining about things.

4chan can be great for finding new things that ARE good, because if even 4chan has trouble finding bad things to say about something, it's probably excellent. But for determining what's actually bad, it's a crapshoot.

tl;dr: Do not ever listen to 4chan about what should be changed to make a story work, which subplots to avoid, or why a story doesn't work.

Well to be frank I don't think Kill la Kill seems like the kind of series it would work well for, unless it's a minor thing that's mostly milked for humor. I'm lukewarm on Ryuuko/Mako since it still seems pretty one-sided to me but I definitely think her/Hot Teacher is a bad idea though since the age difference is pretty icky, unless he's really actually only like 18 or something.

It's possible 4Chan's acting way out of bounds over it, but distaste for romantic subplots is not an unusual sentiment, and I think it has less to do with elitism and more the fact that a lot of them are <i>really fucking bad</i>. See: most of the newer Gundams/Inuyasha/any harem anime/etc.
>> No. 86055
Again, you're focusing on tangible details rather than recognizing the actual source of the problem with those subplots. It is not about elitism. It is about the Dunning–Kruger effect as it applied to skill at criticism.

Essentially, they are BAD CRITICS who think they are COMPETENT CRITICS. Their opinions that the plots didn't work are valid, but their understanding of WHY they didn't work are laughable.
