So we're a quarter of the way through this.
What does /a/ think?
The only good thing about it is the OST.
This show is still airing? The fuck?
Halfway you mean.
And episode 13 was pure shit, seriously.
Episode 12 finally managed to get me excited for the following episodes, then 13 killed any excitement I had.
Anon, were you also one of those who shipped weak glasses with Ryuuko?
I think the meta/parody angle only lasts about 2 episodes, and after that it's just as bad as the stuff it's trying to be better than.
I stopped watching a while ago because it became boring.
Straight decline from the beginning. Gets worse every episode.
NUI MUST DIE NUI MUST DIE NUI MUST DIE NUI MUST DIE NUI MUST DIE NUI MUST DIE NUI MUST DIE NUI MUST DIE NUI MUST DIE NUI MUST DIE NUI MUST DIE NUI MUST DIE NUI MUST DIE NUI MUST DIE NUI MUST DIE NUI MUST DIE NUI MUST DIE NUI MUST DIE
Comeback after ep 15
I can't even force myself to care about any of these characters.
My favorite recent anime. I haven't had as much fun watching an anime in years.
its the best thing of 2013
nui killed it sometime during episode 11/12 and now she is just fucking the corpse
Why does everyone hate ep 13 so bad? I didn't find it any worse than the others
Nui is the best Kill La Kill.
>voicing an opinion that opposes my own is shitposting
Completely devoid of anything interesting with a completely retarded twist.
Welcome to /a/
>Denying your love for the best girl
This is now a Nui thread. Post Nui.
>shit rap monkey talk
Nothing happened, the twist was stupid, the end was stupid.
The could have just had Senketsu dissolve at the end of the last episode. They didn't need a whole other fucking episode for a single plot point. It certainly would have made a good cliffhanger for the break.
Go to foolz and go through the Thursday's threads.
Look at the reaction. Think about who might feel so threatened by it that they need to funpost for next 6 days and claim opposite happened.
>trying to defend the biggest bitch in all of KLK
This thread is now a Mako thread. Post Mako
>anon still butthurt his ship was sunk and he was rused
No, I'm one of those who don't expect to see the "death" of Senketsu (I know he will come back soon enough) told in 3 shitty frames.
Seriously the animation in that episode was so fucking bad even Nui couldn't save it, usually during these sort of episodes they would try to cover the weak production values using direction tricks and shit but episode 13 was just a bunch of nothing.
It's like they stopped trying.
>Implying Nui isn't going to Kill la Mako the next time Mako gets in the way of her fun
Don't kid yourself.
It's no TTGL.
Which is a bad thing.
Why do people like Nui so much?
She's so boring.
I've been using that transparent Mako group to place them in moments in history. It's fun.
Place your bets on how Nui will ruin Ryuuko's life next
Make any WW2 edits?
Or maybe it's you who's boring, anon.
She wont, shes going to go after Satsuki now
It's fun to watch, I want to see how it goes further.
It's only a few people, they usually like her because they know that people dislike her (what is a design choice) and thier inner hipster bursts out and they "like" Nui just for the sake of being hated on so much.
No, but I did land her on the moon.
>Doesn't take things seriously
>Wrecked Ryuuko twice in a row for being a shitty protagonist
What's NOT to like?
Maybe I just don't like anime anymore, but this is doing nothing for me.
I'm only watching it because I don't like dropping shows half way.
WOW look t that QUALITY.
There's not really anything to dislike about her, but there's also nothing to like.
I feel that way for most KlK characters. They're just sort of there. Infact, TTGL was like that too.
I like her because she is fun.
How big do you think Nui's rack is? I mean from what she wears, it looks pretty big.
I can't wait for her to do something like pull a plot-device fiber in Junketsu that removes its restraints or something and lets it take Satsuki over and go on a rampage. It'll be like Ryuuko's, except her Devas won't be able to snap her out of it.
>it looks pretty big.
How long until we see a man wearing a kamui?
Well being the Grand Couturier, you'd need an awfully big rack to hang up all the clothes you design!
Not going to happen. Ragyo may like to tease her own daughter but she'd never let Nui really hurt her.
And don't think even for a second that Ragyo is weaker than Nui.
What makes you think Satsuki is not really a man?
I'm loving it so far there hasn't Been one episode I didn't enjoy. I just hope it sells well so trigger can make more anime.
And here she is at the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
Trigger has good animation, but they need to hire some proper writers.
>Sensei gets a Kamui
>it's a speedo
Kill La Kill is the most people anime of are time, the modern day eva. several seasons, a movie to end the series, and some movie remakes
Who said anything about hurting her? She's just going to make her go berserker mode and see if the Devas can snap her out of it.
She already stated she wants to push Satsuki overboard and Ragyo didn't do anything except to warn her about messing with kamuis.
>Trigger has good animation
Dude, I like KLK, but even I know that most of the animation isn't that good.
>it's a g-sting
>there is a single eye on the crotch
The problem is that there isn't that much animation.
What animation there is is great, and their art style is nice too. But they're really cheaping out and using a lot of still frames and repeated footage.
Nobody hates it, it's just a vocal minority who need some reassurance by shitposting.
Tfw I got a giant ass poster of that image
I'm super happy
they hired a highly accomplished, successful playwright. what more do you want?
>implying KLK hasn't had far more animation stand-outs than most action shows that get made despite being low budget because the animators are good
"KLK has bad animation but I like it" is the new "I l...like Gurren Lagann b-bb-but it's not THAT good don't get me wrong I accept that the old shows are are objectively better but I like it DON'T HATE ME". just something certain insecure fans say. not surprising since KLK fanbase is just the GL fanbase watching a new show so those people carried over.
Well he's doing a bad job.
This right here. Their style works and their animation is fine, they just have absolutely fuckall for budget so they cheap out on every single scene.
Ryuuko is pretty good as a protag.
She's a moron and a lousy fighter, though.
Kill la Kill is basically Code Geass at this point. It's got no story, no continuity and is full of holes so they're just piling on the twists and shock moments to try and provoke cheap reactions out of the audience. There's no reason to care about anything because there's no development or context to anything and no consequences, so nothing that happens matters or has any emotional punch at all.
Look at how amateurish the last episode was, the episode was dire but they threw in a TWEEST and the sudden destruction of an undeveloped character because that at least gets people talking about the show in the absence of any real content.
Not to mention it's so bereft of animation, and despite being an action show has no great action to speak of.
I said "most" of the animation. There's plenty of times in KLK when the animation is impressive.
And yes, I am impressed with how good the animation is at times given Trigger's budget.
it's really hilarious how people are talking about KLK like it's Mononoke or something.
that was an amazing looking show btw, not hating
What you said about CG is correct.
It has nothing to do with KlK though.
Its only going to be one season correct?
whenever there IS animation it's at least competent. and it's not like it's nearly as devoid as animation as people are making it out to be.
>and despite being an action show has no great action to speak of.
ep 1 had lots
ep 3's second half
ep 6, ep 7, ep 11, ep 12's Satsuki vs. batshit Ryuuko sequence
and even then that's just the bits that can be considered >great<, there's a bunch of stuff that's >good<.
Kill la Kill would be decent if they hired a professional writer like Enokido to do the script, instead of a glorified pantomime creator like Nakashima.
>I think the meta/parody angle only lasts about 2 episodes,
except that it was never there
calling everything silly a 'parody' these days is pure thoughtless hiveminding
Enokido is flawless, I mean Star Driver had top-notch exciting writer right?
I felt like 13 was pretty rushed, it didn't have the same hype to it. But 12 didn't hype me for 13, but for the next season, because that's what I assumed was going to come next.
13 could have been done better. But overall I'm hyped for the rest of the series.
Satsuki best girl
I'm still amazed that they got Hiroyuki Sawano for the OST, after he's done such high budget stuff like SnK and Guilty Crown.
His OST's one of the best things about this show.
inb4 I GOTTA FIND OUT WHO KILL MY DAD
What is this supposed to be, seriously?
A comedy? Save for one episode, the jokes feel empty, unfunny, boring and forced.
An action anime? The action is repetitive, badly animated, the fights are unimaginative, they resolve too quickly with asspull from nowhere.
A plot based anime? The plot so far is retarded, very badly paced, with no clear goal in mind.
What exactly is Kill la Kill? It's a bad comedy, with a bad story, with bad fights. I like it as much as any sane individual, but for now it has failed to be anything memorable. It is a parody, that is certain, but an unfunny one, badly drawn and badly plotted. Not the saviour of animation anyway.
And then Ryuko will do it because she doesn't want anyone else to go down the same fate she almost had.
Only here she will insult Satsuki instead, doing so until she forces Junketsu back into shape until she can give Ryuko a noble lady slap across the face.
>they then repeat the slap 52 times
Kill la Kill is a pretty clear Affectionate Parody so I don't know what you're talking about.
If you wanna talk tropes, Satsuki is already running a five-man band. That's a bit her whole shtick is that she has the 'hero' team and Ryuuko is the invader that runs away after every battle; this is part of the theme of the show: inverting and deconstructing the usual magical girl squad arrangement like TTGL inverted the wangsty-mecha trend that Evangelion started. What TTGL is to NGE, KLK is to Madoka.
Ryuuko is gonna be sixth-ranger once Ragyo becomes the real villain and Satsuki & Crew is forced to make a Heel Face Turn.
It's a show about clothes and non conformists.
Star Driver is certainly the better 'transfer student fights student council' anime
>If you wanna talk tropes, Satsuki is already running a five-man band.

jesus fucking christ, are you even listening to yourself?
There are many ways to defend the series, yet you choose the most retarded.
>the only plot progression in 13 episodes was Ryuuko finding her father's killer
>Nui came out of literally nowhere so it doesn't even feel like progression
My patience is wearing thin.
I tried to get into Star Driver but its characterization was extremely poor and bland and ruined everything and there was just no 'hook' to speak up. it's something you just watch the fights in for and that's it.
just the one scene from episode 1 of Ryuuko returning the guy's bike after stealing it with a n apology note was more charming characterization than Takuto had throughout the first 4 episodes combined.
It seems that everyone thinks that IT'S HAPPENING when it hasn't really even begun
*to speak of
that's it; I'm proofreading everything from now on.
>like TTGL inverted the wangsty-mecha trend that Evangelion started
Did I miss some wave of angsty magical-girls shows brought upon by Madoka?
>Ryuuko is gonna be sixth-ranger once Ragyo becomes the real villain and Satsuki & Crew is forced to make a Heel Face Turn.
While the rest of your post is ridiculous, this is the only part that I agree with except Data-Dog's going to be a traitor to REVOCS
The last episode i liked was 3.
However, i am still watching it. Most of the episodes are pretty average. Not good, not bad. The lack of budget is getting to be pretty obvious, if it wasn't already, and hurts the show more than people think.
Also, the MC is a pretty bland and boring protagonist. I expect her to be better after the beatdown last episode, but the last 5-6 episodes of her being boring is already closed and done.
Still hoping it evolves into something amazing after a few episodes, but i've been saying that for awhile now..
he's right that GL was meant to contrast Eva, Imaishi has said so. but it's not a 'parody' of Eva in the least.
"I want this to be different from this" =/= parody.
Isn't Ryuuko supposed to be a "normal" girl anyway?
What really matter is what does Japan think of this
If you wantend something unoriginal and predictable, this is not your show, too bad.
Seriously, I'm enjoying this show as it is because it steps on every fucking guess of the spectator, I haven't seen any prediction getting real, and it is something worth of mention.
>still using "faggot"
japs will buy anything as long as it has cute girls and enough fanservice, so I think we're in the clear on this one
>Show isn't 2deep4u, lolibait or slice-of-life faggotry
YOU BOUGHT IT
YOU ALL BOUGHT IT
HOOK, LINE, AND SINKER; YOU ALL BOUGHT IT.

EVERY DAMN ONE OF YOU WERE MADE FOOLS OF
Your post is pretty accurate on how i feel about the show.
>nui suddenly shows up after 12 episodes
>Hey i killed your dad!
Trigger Staff1: I bet everyone didn't expect that! Such a great twist! We should do more of this bullshit! Buildup and all that crap? Who cares.
I wouldn't be suprised if Necron from ff9 appeared in this show with how they place such an important role on a character that just showed up.
Isn't it called, like, Deus Ex?
>Trigger Staff1: I bet everyone didn't expect that! Such a great twist!
Got a source on that, oh wait you dont because you're a faggot
You're just looking for something to complain about at this point, must be a butthurt waifu fag
Are you implying that trigger themselves put trashy ideas and twists into their shows?
You wouldn't put garbage into the anime you were making, would you anon?
Not that you'd need to try doing that. It would come naturally i guess.
I'd give it 6/10 on a good day but right now I feel like giving it 4-5/10.
It started out good but... I don't know, the fandom is annoying me like shit.
>the fandom is annoying
>this impacts my opinion on the show
That's not what's impacting my opinion on the show. I started out legitimately liking it, but it progressively got less interesting for each week. The fanbase being the worst on the planet doesn't make it better, but that doesn't impact my opinion on the actual show. If it did, I wouldn't watch Naruto.
Spoken like a true fanboy.
>KLK is one of the most entertaining shows of the year
>It also pisses off shitposters and trolls
Code Geass R2 and VVV were entertaining as well.
The bad animation really hurt episode 13's impact on me. It may be my autism but I couldn't stop noticing the still frames and reused shots.
>asking for source on a rhetoric
You're a special kind of retard aren't you?
S2 was shit, no matter how many characters they killed along
The show is stupid and kind of shit.
I give it an 8/10
>Kill la Kill is basically Code Geass at this point.

Wrong premise, incorrect description of the same for both cases and wrong conclusion.
It's like there's some sort of correlation between money and product. It is impossible to fathom.
Becaus it's going to be shitty watching her fight fodder for who knows how long just to piece the fucker back together
It's the right premise, with a correct description for both cases and the right conclusion.
the worst eh?
Seems like you have forgotten SnK. It's not like it's totally gone either.
>Code Geass R2 and VVV were entertaining as well.
Those two are different from each other than KLK.
It's like bad animation is bad animation.
To words on a screen, bub?
You even know where you are right now?
Afro Samurai had a literal million dollar budget but KLK's more limited action animation still more interesting.
Oh mommy n' daddy still handle the finances for you. When you're old enough to buy things on your own, you'll see.
And what does my bank balance have to do with KlK being mediocre?
Pretty disappointing. Animation budget turned out to be a complete joke.
I will never be able to un-see his prototype plugsuit.
>tfw he promises to remember her name
>tfw he give her and her friend a ride home
>tfw he takes her ramblings about "the traffic lights of life" seriously
>tfw he protects her from enemy shooters
>tfw out of all the seats in the stadium, he decides to sit next to her
>tfw he supports her in her underachiever's pride
>tfw he grants her wish to be asked to go
You can't convince me they weren't made for each other.

The best OTP
Is that specualtion or what?
Urobuchi is that you?
No, leaked script. His dad works at TRIGGER.
>proceed to have lesbian sex in front of dead Ragyo and Mako
>Mako dies from watching that scene
So what she comes back to life then immediately dies afterwards?
He's trying to triggeryou
I like their dynamic, I hope they have more screen time together
It feels plagiarized
My bad for the misunderstanding, only Ragyo is dead
Were any others made for Episode 13?
isnt there a Nui one?
For Episode 13? I haven't seen one.
I hope she dies.
This should play in the next engagement
Pretty shit first few episodes but it gets really decent when Nui comes in.
I can't wait for more now, Anything with Nui in it will be great.
Trigger fooled me, They did a nice job on it.
Can anyone describe why people like this show? All I've seen are bad fan-service and pretty lazy animation, and I've only ever seen complaints about KlK (except about the OST). Yet it's quite popular for some reason and I can't figure out why.
So, why do people like this show? And is there any point in watching it?
No there is no point in watching it, you should leave 4chan forever too because theres no point to being here
People were hoping for the next TTGL, and now they're just along for the ride.
It's for girls anon, so no.
Watch TTGL again, that's for you
I watch it for the plot
How did you come to the conclusion that it's popular when only comments you saw were complains?
I still would argue that they have the same vibe, yet are totally opposites, jointed only in their complete disregard for physics.
People are giving Imaishi the benefit of the doubt that he will in fact deliver something interesting in the 2nd half
muh next TTGL
Because of the vast amounts of discussion around it, the many threads here and the very defensive people who won't hestitate to scream about IRC.
This show didn't need to be 24 episodes, same with SNK.
Wow anon I seriously though you were trying to demonstrate she's shit.
She's just a walking plot device, and they chose one of the most annoying tropes ever to portray her: the kawaii uguu monster. Therefore, almost everyone hates her. Therefore, a few hipster autists feel the urge to proclaim their fake love for her in order to annoy people with shitposting and show how avant-garde they are
Ryuuko needs a true fighting sensei.
until now she's been nothing more than the moderately well-trained brat that first walked into the school. The only difference is that she found Senketsu.
now she needs to be... a master!
That's backstory, you fucking plebs.
This is what I meant earlier. Is there really not a single compliment to give the show? I've seen so much of its bad side, and I kinda wonder what good things people see in it to motivate them to keep watching (except for the hope that it will get better)
Sensei will teach her how to fight properly.
I watch it for the FABULOUS REVOCS parts and for Satsuki's mother.
Tripfags are the cancer that is killing /a/, and this tripfag may as well be their leader.
When I shitpost, I'm glad I'm an anon because I'd be ashamed to be known for my shitposting.
And then this neckbeard who obviously lives on autismbucks and in self-loathing, edgy misanthropy and bitter resentment towards people, society, humanity, the sun, happiness, proudly shows his badge on 4chan, and goes around shitposting with all his might and reveling in his own shit.
I'm on /a/ so I my decency bar is set pretty low, and still you make me sick, you despisable genetic trainwreck.
Please consider terminating your embarassing life.
You are posting in the wrong thread if you want to hear the good side of this show. Just look at it, anyone that is enjoying Kill la Kill is posting in the other thread. Also, why not form your own opinions, who gives a shit what /a/ thinks.
I'm hoping the preview is accurate and the next episode will have more Sensei/Ryuuko time. I'm betting Sensei is pretty powerful it just hasn't really been shown yet (he was about to confront Satsuki in episode 3 after all).
i watch it because i like it
there isnt much to explain I think
It has saved anime.
>yfw this is a running gag between them
>yfw when one day he finally kisses her instead
I watch it because I can see and appreciate the effort Trigger put in it.
Most of times the amount of effort doesn't end up translating in an equal amount of goodness, but it's still worth it.
Unlike TTGl, KLK saved its load for the second half. They're even getting help from Khara. I wouldn't judge KLK before episode 15.
First you see only complaints, then wast amounts of discussions and then you try to downplay the systematic funposting that started months before the first ep. aired.
Yeah, Sensei seemed ready to jump in at almost every moment so far.
I'm betting he's been hiding his power-level for some time now.
Perhaps more so than Batman.
Well he is an 8 star, thats even better than Ragyo
I ma withholding my judgement until I see the new OP
I watch it because I like the over the top animation (though it's mostly bad technically), the soundtrack is pretty good and is put to good use, I like most of the characters and the shameless fanservice that swings for both teams and yet still somehow conveys the message that one shouldn't be ashamed of himself.
Otomedia said something like "up until this point, Aikurou and Tsumugu kept a safe distance from Ryuuko; in the second half, they're going to get closer".
>Message deletion samefag exposion
MODS = GODS
Oh shit, everything makes sense now.
there are 9 stars there, you missed the one above his left elbow.
So I did, so he's virtually as powerful as Satsuki or Ryuuko
So any theories on why Ragyo gives off a full spectrum of colors and Satsuki only gives off white light?
white is all colours combined, satsuki is the strongest
Isn't white light the entire spectrum combined?
No, thats Black
White is the absence of color
Kill la Kill is to Gurren Lagann what Mawaru Penguindrum is to Revolutionary Girl Utena.
Ryuko already has a dad though and he's dead
I never saw those sparkles as literal stars before. mind==nude
I like the characters and hot bloodedness. I believe the animation would be much better if they could help it, LWA is proof of that.
I know you're rusing, but when it comes to chemical pigments you are correct.
>What does /a/ think?
It's still garbage, what else?
the kiddies are going to grow up thinking this is true because you posted this on /a/
Good think Aikuro is Satsuki's father then
All three of them do look alike.
You're supposed to bait the hook, anon.
You'll never catch anything like that.
that would imply that they weren't very bright from the beginning, so why bother.
Absolutely boring from beginning to now.
And was overhyped as hell.
Then why the fuck does Mikisugi look like a hot 20-something, and not the age he should be?
Because immortality duh
I am shocked and appalled.
Wow. Even if this isn't completely accurate the concept of Adam (Aikuro) and Eve (Ragyou) makes a lot of sense.
Mako! Quit browsin' /a/ and come suck my dick!
Remember me, Ryuuko?
When I killed your father, I talked JUST LIKE THIIISSSS!!!!
I know it's weird, but I think she looks like Emiya Shirou.
Anybody got pic with Shirou in Senketsu?
I continue to watch this show because I enjoy:
-The over the top ridiculousness by Trigger in character design, animation, and drawing style
-Breaking the 4th wall from character dialogue (guessing what the audience is thinking) to animation
-Comedy, I wish Mako didn't exist, but this series has been pretty funny at times
-Integration of multiple legends and historical events into its setting and plot
-Philosophical and political concepts are pretty well drawn out for a TV show
I just want to cuddle Ryuuko.
I could see Ryuuko doing a rap like this.
>tumblr art in one post
>not wanting to cuddle mako
I want to taste her rainbow
I want to see her suffer
Tomboys are meant to be broken
Not posting the best gurl
shitty as usual
but he did.
Mako saved Christmas.
Liked it at first, but it's starting to lose it's way
The latest episode is making me question it. Nui is still annoying. They just took out the main character's fighting ability for who knows how long.
Senketsu's in pieces, and Ryuuko is gunna have to collect them somehow, it feels like a really bad fetch quest from a video game.
It's a combination of people watching it to wank to the girls and people who were already fans of Trigger/Gainax before it came out and are looking at the show through extreme bias goggles.
Ryuukos are for love, not suffering.
Bushy eyebrows make everything better
The fact that it points towards a shit-ton of filler for one. We're collecting Shikon Shards for the next ten episodes! (I originally typed "sharts," and either one seems to fit.)
her hands look so wrong
>the piece of senketsu left is his eye
>ryuuko puts it over her left eye
>able to power up with complete synchronization
Shes going to put it over her pussy
damn right they do
1. What would be really awesome
The last bit of Senketsu transforms into a mini-bikini and Ryuuko fights with him
2. What's going to happen
Senketsu fetch quest
I'm wondering if Ryuuko's outfit will change. I want it to but I don't want it to since I'm used too it.
I think it's fucking great, really. I was worried it was heading in a bad direction after episode 12 but 13 rejuvenated my interest.
Show is great, and lots of fun.
Still my favorite anime of 2013
It's empowering females who want to stick it to the man (or woman)!
It's got friendship!
It's got likeable characters!
It's got a hateable pink nazi slut!
It's got NUDEESTO BEECH!
surely, if she proves herself, they'd give her a one or two-star?
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmaybe. Maybe not.
I hope we're being rused again.
She's a fucking god-tier troll.
I wish I could only be half as good as she is.
Goddamn, Mako's adorable.
Nui makes the trolls here on /a/ seem drained and limp and shriveled.
Can't you morons keep your shit in one thread? Fucking most annoying fanbase in this season and the previous one.
The rusemaster ain't got shit on her.
>THE FOLLOWING EPISODES WILL JUST BE RYUUKO COLLECTING SHARDS!
Yeah, just like the show was supposed to be monster-of-the-week. Stop pretending that any prediction on /a/ has been correct.
I expected Gurren Lagann, I got Panty and Stocking
Berserk Ryuuko was right on the money, also Mako's family getting corrupted by greed was also predicted
This, really. Though the people who get so enraged over her on /a/ make her a lot more fun.
Pff, I didn't even chuckle.
>still trying to force this "hurrrrrr le worse fanbays evur" shit
fuck off please
>Mako's gonna die in episode 12!
>Megane's gonna be a love interest!
>tfw someone says your waifu is actually their waifu
>Berserk Ryuuko was right on the money
>Mako's family getting corrupted by greed was also predicted
Watching the preview and making guesses doesn't make you a genius or the show predictable.
You got both.
life fibers, son
i doubt he's old enough to be satsuki's father
he might be her older brother though
quads confirms gay OP is best
And really the reason why nobody predicted Araragi was Nui is because it makes for some awkward as fuck pacing
>Hero hits his low point, gets his resolve back, hits his low point again, gets his resolve back again
It's just weird
I didn't want that
Fuck, I got Nui.
I've been looking for this gif all over. This is great.
>Satsuki and Sensei have the same eyes.
I take the thumbnail is supposed to be the kiss?
You open the giff and leftclick on the gif and drag it out
why cant you hit escape anymore to stop gifs?

To add to this... The Serpent originally tempted Eve with sin in the form of an apple. Ragyo (Eve) refers to clothing as "sin". Well then, if clothing = sin... Who's the one that provides Ragyo with sin?
That's right, the Grand Couturier. Nui Harime is the Serpent. Still leading Eve astray by tempting her with the sin of clothing.
Not sure how I feel about this.....could be interesting.......or terrifying
I just dragged out nonon 4 times in a row
Also, gama isn't on that gif, why?
See heres the thing, even if you are trolling.
Why are you assuming Senketsu is coming back?
Why are you assuming there is going to be a collection quest to bring him back?
This is fucking Trigger/Gainax we're talking about. Stop making guesses, yes I know a ton of people are livid at Nui right now, and Senketsu is apparently dead. That's what Trigger is aiming for, so just tighten your seat belt and enjoy the rest of the ride.
Who knows what the fuck is going to happen, but we all know one thing. Its going to be fucking glorious.
As for non-joke predictions at this point we have
>Aikuro being Satsuki's father
>Inumuta betraying Satsuki
dunno, didn't make it. I will add it later on. piece of cake
Not even gay, but I don't mind at all
>does not work
God dammit Firefox
>Nonon 4 times in a row
It's a sign
not the guy you're replying to
>Why are you assuming Senketsu is coming back?
doesn't take a genius, if he was dead for real, the scene would be way more dramatic
>Why are you assuming there is going to be a collection quest to bring him back?
doesn't take a genius either, satsuki scattered the pieces, and ryuuko wants him back
I love theories like this.
Im perfectly okay with this
I'm ok with this.
you only have yourselves to blame for hyping the ever loving shit out of it
are you holding your button? because only that you can drag it out
i use firefox too
When does a Kamui even die? The red piece of fabric might be enough if it has his Nexus Thread
We might as well get chibi-Senketsu tied to Ryuuko's arm
Got Nonon 3 times in a row. Maybe it's fate.
Maybe its Maybelline
the left button on your mouse
I feel retarded to explain it to you
just drag the picture like you would anything else
>KLK is a reconstruction of the Magical Girl Genre.
my fucking sides
The pieces will probably naturally flow from the hosts to Ryuuko in 1 max 2 episodes. I don't think they'll waste time on this shit.
Hell, for what we know, Ryuuko could not even start rebuilding Senketsu, learning to fight without her Godrobe or using the piece she held as an asspull to synchronize again.
Possibilities are endless.
How blown the fuck out is Satsuki going to be when Ryuuko defeats the Four Kings without a Kamui?
I just finished to watch every episode so far : it sucks.
There is no plot, it's boring, and this whole fan-service-thing is unbearable.
I'm 30 and I'm officaily done with japanese animation, except for some Ghibli prods.
Gainax is just full of retarded manchild.
Ive been doing that
But either it gives me the No symbol or it links me to the actual gif
>doesn't take a genius, if he was dead for real, the scene would be way more dramatic
Seemed pretty dramatic to me, her tearing up and crying out Senketsu's name before he got wheat threshed.
>doesn't take a genius either, satsuki scattered the pieces, and ryuuko wants him back
Ryuuko thinks Senketsu is dead, there is going to be denial on her part that much is clear but we will not know what will happen until it happens. Saying it doesn't take a genius to predict this show, of course it doesn't. It takes someone with an absurd amount of luck. I think a week before episode 13 aired, someone predicted the dude was Nui.
So don't upset about something that hasn't happened yet. When the next episode turns into a search for the shikon jewel shards, then you can't complain about it.
Its like ordering a pizza in a pizzeria, suddenly you smell a pie and assume you are getting pie. Chill man.
im sorry, dont know how to help you further.
maybe youre just not supposed to get a kiss
We don't know yet. Senketsu had multiple banshi's apparently since Nui plucked one out. So we can only wait and see what happens.
WHAT DOES IT MEAAAAAAAN
I fucking love Billy edits. Thank god Japan is obsessed with Billy.
Just open in a new tab and press Esc.
Shes actually a Clockwerk, and that are gears in her eye
Fuck I'm out of swiss
I would love to see Mako wear another uniform.
Mine doesn't do that. Mine gives me that little circle with the line through it when I try to do that.
God dammit, I shouldn't have updated my Firefox
>not her same 2-star uniform
Chances are, if his firefox is one of the more recent ones, it won't do that either.
Fucking mozilla devs.
Just hit Print Screen randomly while the gif is playing then and paste it to paint
>not her original 2-star uniform
thank god im never updating my shit
Wasn't it destroyed? Is it possible to create another copy? If so then I would say let her wear her old one.
I full on installed Seamonkey instead. Sure, half the extensions I used don't work, but at least I'm isolated from the idiocy of Mozilla's "The arbitrary UI changes will continue until the userbase improves" policy.
Gama will gift her a MK. 2 version of her old uniform, just you wait.
Of course they can make a copy.
finally got it to work after installing a mozilla addon
So am I supposed to be their first kiss? I'm lewd, I've already had my first kiss~
>Not wanting to kiss Inumuta
7/10. You got 3 people to take you seriously. I'm noticing that whenever there is a new episode of KlK, people immediately forget about the others. This is why its fans are so easy to bait.
Got Inumata 5 times
Inumuta more like Inu-cute-a
Dog a shit.
Gama is better
Oh boy, here we go
Thats no fair, Gama is better than everyone
i wholeheartedly agree.
Why can't we get along and acknowledge that they both cater to different tastes?
The little fragment of Senketsu Ryuuko kept is going to awaken with his personality, but it will only have a fragment of the original Senketsu. Ryuuko will have to fight against the Devas in order to complete Senketsu again; they will be wearing much more powerful Uniforms while Ryuuko has been depowered and that's where the tension and growth will happen. Ryuuko will prove herself to be better than them and Satsuki, finally ruining her plans and tasting victory before Ragyou appears and reveals Satsuki getting blown out was her own plan; then Junketsu takes over Satsuki's body and becomes the real final boss.
>Going into Berserk mode and bleeding to death in 10 minutes with no one to stop it
>Not hurting her
>Eating pie at a pizzeria.
Who does that?
american thing I guess
Ragyou and Nui want Junketsu to awaken and consume Satsuki. Not just for Satsuki to go berserk, they want Junketsu to take over. In Ryuuko's case, it was clearly Ryuuko's own fault. In Satsuki's case, Junketsu will be in control.
Getting asked out by Satsuki would be weird. She'd probably shout at you from the top of her tower in her sword pose, ordering you to go on a date with her.
That's a bit unfair Gama is the best character of the whole show
americans are weird man
Who will lose first (again)? Gama or Uzu? Both Osaka and Kobe are beaches.
>Mako in the middle of war
>Tons of scenes where Gamagori risks his life to save her.
What I like about Trigger anime is that it manages to be deep without being boring or pretentious.
She is with Uzu's troops.
Maybe this is the chance for her to interact with Uzu. maybe we will like her and NTR gama
>Captcha : Sublimation ayommis
>the Kasnai conquest fails
>"There is no shame in losing to Nudist Beach, we have collected valuable COMBAT DATA"
Japs seem to like to do that kind of stuff
You do realise he meant 'pizza pie', right?
They won't lose to Nudist Beach, they will lose to depowered Ryuuko.
>the Kasnai conquest fails
>"There is no shame in losing to depowered Ryuuko, we have collected valuable COMBAT DATA"
Combat data for what? To beat a 17 year old girl?
I feel like it would be like the opening cartoon segment from "Who Framed Roger Rabbit".
Dunno, but everything up to this point was about collecting COMBAT DATA
I'm alright with this.
It order to beat Nudist Beach; if Ryuuko saves Nudist Beach, Satsuki did nothing but waste time and resources.
To take over the rest of the world.
But all the combat data they would have collected would be on fighting a 17 year old girl. And it's not like Satsuki would have no reason to keep them around if a Kamui-less Ryuuko beats them.
he literally said "eating pie at a pizzeria"
well there's this thing called 'dessert'. I doubt you'd know what it is
You are not following the conversation
Anon asked which Deva will lose first, and I am showcasing if any of them lose at this point then the whole show has been pointless
The show is about Ryuuko, not about Satsuki or the Devas. And if the Devas don't lose, Nudist Beach is done for.
tfw Ryuko 3 times and nonon twice
The Devas will lose because if they don't Nudist Beach is done for and they can't get rid of Nudist Beach without even introducing them. They're also doomed because they will have pieces of Senketsu and Ryuuko has to get them back.

I hate you
-I can accept the character design and drawing style but the animation is bad if there is any.
-When did they do this?
-Do you like Mako stopping story progression, heavy fanservice, Invincible Mako and stupid unbearable action?
-A lot of anime do this now why don't you praise them.
-Watch Log Horizon.
>Voiced by Nanoha
>tfw uzu first and sensei twice
Best character on the show.
The only thing it is empowering is muh dick
as I said
This is Imashi. He was obviously saving the budget for the next episodes. We already know Khara animators are joining the the staff next week.
That would be interesting and cute.
I really want to see her transformation sequence
After 15 actually, but yeah.
How strong is she?
Because it's fun and I like the characters. Why do you like anime?
It's kinda brilliant because Nui hit Ryuuko at a low point by giving her false hope then crushing her harder than ever before and make her realize she can go down even deeper into a whole new level of despair.
...which will only make Ryuuko's inevitable return to badassery all the more powerfull and triumphant.
>this guys made 2d look disgusting, my compliments.
I got Ryuuko.
But Gama isn't there which makes the thing invalid.
Is there anyone on this show who's not insane
>It's kinda brilliant
It really isn't its just weird pacing
>exclusively an American thing
Monkey is pretty sane.
Not in a pizzeria dude
>had his eyes sewn shut
Shes probably the most insane of them all
She looks like robot unicorn. That's some awful artwork. Put that shit on the fridge.
>7 stars on her back
>Hundred of Kamui in her wardrobe
She's weak as shit.
pre-blind monkey then.
that's not 'tumblrshit' at all, it looks more like a very poorly drawn attempt at mainstream western comic book style. it also doesn't look like the artist went out of his/her way to make her look unattractive; it looks like that PURELY because the art is bad.
here's pure, legit tumblrshit for reference.
Was that Banjo i saw in there? Because i sure heard a banjo at least.
>Ryuuko said her mom died when she was a kid
>Sensei was colleagues with her at the time
Sensei is definitely old enough to have a kid.
TTGL is good and if you like it better than Getter Robo your opinion is completely and totally valid.
KLK's animation is still shit. It feels like such a waste too considering how good the character designs are.
>they are so fucking ugly the concrete is crumbling underneath them
Gama a shit.
Man Every tumblr artist draws these retarded cat eyes and stupid looking hands. What's even the deal with that? Why can't they look at a show and say, wow. This is their skin color because the show says so and draw with that?
This is what YOU believe.
kinue being her mother is just fanwank at this point
and tsumugu doesn't look any younger in that flashback
At least that still looks like the characters and wasn't drawn with some bullshit "LUV YOUR BODY EVEN IF SOCIETY THINKS UR UGLY" message behind it.
I kind of want someone to redraw this pic with more show-accurate designs, just show I can show it to the original artist and maybe make them realize how stupid their art style is.
It pisses me off when Tumblrites fuck up perfectly good character designs for the sake of "diversity".
So someone said on CR Ryuko's getting a new outfit, and that's why they can't show the new OP yet. Can any anons confirm this?
Couldn't get over how bad the art and animation is.
Maybe they're fans of some popular really ugly looking cartoons I don't know and redraw everything else with that style.
I come from the future and yes I can confirm it
Learn to Sakuga.
and it can be easily fixed
>looks like the characters
>implying Nonon is black
>implying Ryuuko has arm hair
well she's not making them fat or hideous or anything; if this artist ditched the Tumblr hivemind nose bullshit, this drawing would be pretty alright.
Learn to follow quote links.
It's probably just one of the reasons.
Well, it's not like i would have any better chance with anyone else.
he was referring to >>100115303, not this shit >>100115159
the random red noses are weird and don't go well with the designs, but that's the only dumb part.
Ryuuko's nose doesn't have to be just a line.
Why is tumble even watching shows if they hate their drawing styles or character designs so much? It doesn't make sense.
I kinda like the show, but each episode makes me go "Man, it's been a while since I saw Gurren Lagan, I should watch that again"
Yeah I like but I think I am deluding myself because after each episode I say "That was mediocre but the next episode is surely going to be a game-changer"
and now for s a hilarious detail: this is her porn blog. http://sickyuris.tumblr.com/
note that none of the stuff she reblogs is nearly as 'BODY POSITIVE'. you'd expect it to be 100% ugly fat women with hairy legs but lo and behold it's mostly the same sort of shit 'SICK WHITE CISMALES' like.
'body positive' art is for feeling better about themselves but when it comes to masturbating they still gravitate to 'problematic' things.
I think it has something to do with, at least in the case of >>100115159 , that tumblrites like to make it more "diverse", by not having as many Caucasians.
Except, in KLK's case, everyone, and I mean everyone, is Japanese, not Caucasian, and even its just about skin tone, we have three characters already (Tsumugu, Gama, Ragyo's secretary), who appear to be dark-skinned, so these Tumblrites seem less like "champions of social justice" and more like M. Night Shyamalan when he directed The Last Airbender.
Haha yeah, that's what keeps happening to me as well. Satsuki's mother might be interesting, so I guess I'll stay on board for her story.
Also that OST is pretty good.
Every artist has a different style of art that is highly influenced by what they see and the artists they admire. Since pixiv artists mostly draw in the anime style, other pixiv artists draw in an anime style, though it's slightly different from artist to artist. Same for tumblr. Since tumblr artists typically draw in a cartoony style, other artists are inspired by their art style and follow suit, but although some core 'tumblr-shit' things remain (nose, especially), the artists still have different styles.
they all love idealized 'OBJECTIFIED!!!' art. they just do this to their own fan art because of insecurity.
Hell yeah mother fucker
I enjoyed E13 a lot. It is one of my favorite episodes so far. The story progressed much, the twist was good and the current state keeps me excited, speculating and wishing for more.
KlK still is the only airing anime I am following because nothing else managed to catch my interest enough to endure the weekly waiting and to follow the threads.
the hilarious part about her nonon is that... you know how Tumblr people scream 'whitewashing' if you as much as make a tanned character less tanned? this is basically 'blackwashing'. ALL of KLK's characters are already "people of color" for fuck's sake. Mako is a fabled "queer woman of color" but apparently that's not enough, she's also gotta be fat.
the Nonon thing is like drawing characters from The Boondocks to look asian for "extra variety".
The character was never there to begin with. "He" was introduced with black text. Please drill this into your thick shipfag skull.
I am happy with that.
my god man it's a million percent better
most Pixiv users are just as stylistically vapid though. their work is just less annoying because their art doesn't ooze insecurity.
Differences to what you're used to can be hard to accept. But most would see it as innovative.
It's like poetry, they rhyme
I'm pretty sure the 'making people fat/interracial' thing is a recent thing. Instead of making things furry and anthromorphic on deviantart, they diversify the characters. I think it's less 'insecurity' and more 'everyone on tumblr is doing it, why don't I try'?
i don't think making them look like hambeasts and giving them arm hair is "diversifying" though
nah, the author has one ~selfie~ and she's obviously fat and also >hiding her face<
the insecurity is blatant
This one is really weird to look at
all this texture spam too distracting
The sin is the lust for the other. cloting is sin because we perceived we would get power by exploiting the others life, i mean, lifefiber is people.
The elite 4 still dont know about that, i wonder who ill betray satsuki when they know. I mean, like he mother, she consider the majority of people as pigs, but in how much they differ?
And a million fangirls rejoiced
But cartoons look always different. But you only see the same ugly-nose style on tumblr. I have actually never seen any cartoon with this tumblr style. And artists can adapt to different styles to some degree which is what makes them artists. I barely watch anything aside from anime but if I'd do a Simpsons fanart I would use the fucking Simpson style and not anime noses.
total emission or reflection = white
black = total absorption or absence of color
Ragio is a calleidoscope, she have total emission but is able to separe the spectrum.
She had the most important part in her hand, the rest are arbitary. There isnt going to be some gay quest to get all the pieces, I don't know why you fags are even thinking that.
In an special effects commentary show for Gravity, Shinji Higuchi talked about upcoming works. He said he is in charge of episode 15 of KLK, it's a special episode for which Sushio himself was AD. He also revealed that the titans in the Attack on Titans LA movie will be suit actors.
lived a hard life.
because the other parts also have nexus threads and are also made with isshin's superior stitching
Senketsu is shocked lol
There are a few things in this thread that bug me.
Do people even understand what plot is and can be? To state that KLK is lacking a plot is a baseless assertion. It's the story of a girl whose father was killed, and how her quest to find answers regarding his death drug her into a world much more sinister than she realizes, and forces her to be hero(?) despite her ignorance of the environment around her.
Why do people continually judge the show on their own internal speculation and assumptions despite always being wrong?
My last point is more general. I have not once in all my years on /a/ ever seen a fanbase described as anything but the worst on /a/. I've never heard anyone call a fanbase the 2nd worse, or one of the worst, it's always the worst. Just felt like pointing that out.
They're just trolls. Don't lose your way.
Shouldn't they at least like Gama in that case? Why aren't they drawing fucking Gama? But with KlK style please.
most of what you're referring are rusemen fishing for replies
normal people who don't like an anime don't constantly visit its threads and express their dislike of it
I also noticed this.
Ryuuko will defeat the Four Kings with only 10% of Senketsu; that's what the show is leading to. It's not the clothing, it's the wearer. KLK makes every development perfectly obvious through in-your-face foreshadowing.
Speaking of Eva references, the 4 directors of Rebuild are working on KLK for episodes 15-18.
I don't doubt that this thread smells like a bait and tackle shop, but there are at least a few anons in here who think they have legitimate critiques of the show that are flat out wrong, or stupid. I'd love to think that it's all just rusing, but there are some really fucking stupid people here these days.
i won't really be able to watch episode 13 anytime soon, could someone give me a run-down on it?
Ryuuko became the ultimate underdog.
Last episode was a bummer, but I'm sure it'll pick up again.
-Mako got drafted for war.
-Rebocs controls 90% of the world.
-Satsuki's invasion is about to start; nobody stands a chance against them. Satsuki says it will be over in a day.
-Nui destroyed Senketsu
-Satsuki took the Senketsu pieces away, but Ryuuko kept the ribbon.
-The Deva Uniforms will be upgraded with Senketsu pieces for the invasion.
-The world is fucked, everything seems hopeless
>hating diversity in art
Sorry that people want to see perspectives in fiction that aren't that of the cishet white male, and choose to express it through fanart that doesn't harm you in any way.
that is obviously drawn as a guy by a parody. it's missing a lot of genuine 'tumblr girl' cues.
It's always like that. People don't want to admit to dislike a show just because of taste so if they hate something they explain that they hate it because of the stupid plot, generic characters, bad writing/pacing/animation and things like that. It doesn't matter which show they're talking about - the only thing that matters is if they like or hate it.
you know, it's not the redraw itself that bothers me,
its that they call it a meme
But the problem with tumblr isn't that they draw dark-skinned characters, the problem is that the drawing style looks like utter shit. People usually love brown girls/boys.
>To state that KLK is lacking a plot is a baseless assertion.

Kill La Kill is about a character who cares about getting revenge for someone she doesn't care about getting revenge for and who wants to fight a character who she has no reason to want to fight who is an oppressor who barely oppresses anyone and her underlings who joined her without really having a reason to join her and are her enforcers who stopped enforcing things after the first episode.
It's refreshing anime with a mixture of derpy moments and deep speeches. None of the characters seem 100% irrelevant. Also nice Original soundtrack
>get Suzuki 3/3 times.
What could it mean?
what animal would Nonon be
Devas are animals.
Don't forget the free-for-all election that wasn't really an election and changed nothing
A pig in human's clothing
Just like teenagers, they start off irrational, and then mature into kings of power one billion percent.
This is a tale of such triumph.
So you're saying KLK is a complex show without black and white morality and characters with conflicts and multifaceted personalities?
I got Nonon 3 times and Mako 2 times
Or it's inconsistent and incoherent and has a plot propelled forward by contrivances rather than natural character actions and cause and effect.
She cares about avenging her father, whom she wasn't close to but was her only known relative. It's understandable given her personality that she would desire vengeance, especially since the only person she had was violently taken from her. She fought Satsuki because she believed her to be the culprit, which Satsuki didn't disavow. Satsuki is also clearly a tyrant who oppresses the masses, who live in slums, and seemingly have no rights. However, though Satsuki is harsh, she also appears to have a softer side given that she appears to care both for her Devas and Ryuuko to some extent. The Devas clearly still play a role in the school since as we saw last episode, Gama is still dishing out discipline and they're leading their respective clubs into war against the Big 3.
So, in summation, all your points are wrong and you are a fag.
What parts didn't make sense? Be specific.
The election was a scheme by Satsuki to manipulate Ryuuko to reveal her abilities, so that Satsuki could gather data to perfect her line of Goku uniforms to ensure her conquest of the remainder of Japan. The Devas upcoming new uniforms, and the other uniform upgrades are a direct consequent of the naturals election.
I'm sorry to do this to you /a/, but I can't sit on this any longer even though its only been a few hours.
MAJOR SPOILERS FOR NEXT THURSDAY AHEAD:

>-Camera zooms on a torn school uniform with a symbol etched on it.
Did you mean Mako? Otherwise this doesn't seem to make sense.
Lemme give my bud a call, I'll clear that up. I think it was like Ryuuko's name cut in to the uniform.
Ryuuko and Sensei are on the road to the battlefield next week.
WHAT IF RYUUKO STOPS BEING THE PROTAGONIST NOW THAT SHE'S LOST SENKETSU
IT'S LIKE TTGL ALL OVER AGAIN
But Mako was scripted to die by episode 15, not 14.
