Remember kids, Money is bad and corrupt good people.
greed is bad
>Citizen militia zealously defending the city
Osaka confirmed for Athens.
He has done nothing wrong.
He sickens us as socialists, to have so much money and use it as a weapon/as he pleases.
Even to use the willing population militia he has formed and fed, not forced as Satsuki ironically has, (see Mako) with his money to fight against our noble unpaid socialist causes.
But seriously I hope they actually take note of the fact that everyone under him is fighting because they want to, not because they have to
But I am a capitalist
He may be a dick for throwing civillians into a frontline and might have done some other ugly things, but he, certainly, is more effective ruler, than certain someone.
Look how diverse everyone looks in Osaka while everyone under Satsuki looks like a samefag.
Why is that dog wielding a gun?
why is having a mercenary army being a dick?
They are more like militia, than merc army.
Whats wrong with laying a whore to have sex?
He isn't as much of a dick as Satsuki.
She rules over a relatively small citadel surrounded by wide ass areas brazilian/african-tier shantytowns. Whereas he has control over a bustling city.
Its going to be disappointed if Ryuuko doesn't save him by interrupting and she rapes him using anything other than her sword or Junketsu.
Satsuki is ruling by fucking communism and forces entry into her military or be third world as fuck.
He just makes it rain on civilians who are decently living but yearn for more. The hypocrisy is that Kiryuin Academy students would call him out for that, while they are being essentially forced to do this shit.
You really can't hate him.
He is paying them. He is not forcing them. They are doing it on their own will.
They are mercenaries.
well the only reason they're fighting is monetary gain so that makes them mercenaries doesn't it
>Distributes wealth to city's people
>Rebuilds city when destroyed
>Created a valuable and more stable currency
>City economy thriving, plenty of shops open
>Happy populace willing to fight against invaders
>Doesn't bow down to Kanto peasants
>Has a giant robot crab
Best leader by far.
>They are mercenaries
Except they are not
>A mercenary is a person who takes part in an armed conflict, who is not a national or a party to the conflict and is "motivated to take part in the hostilities by the desire for private gain." The term "mercenary" is also used to describe the army itself.
All these angry libertians.
They are targeting the school. Not the city.
They are not involved.
I've never trusted rich people. It is so easy for them to screw you and get away with it.
By the same logic,, the government shouldn't be paying their soldiers.
The school is part of the city, fuck the school IS the city, Kill la Kill doesn't work like the real world.
Satsuki's armies are attacking the schools not the cities
Who said this anime was suppose to teach a morale?
When has "If it entertains you, that must mean it must teach you something" ever become a thing? What if they just want to tell a story. A story who happens to have a dictator ruler as the antagonist who might not be that bad and a rival cooperation who happens to worship money.
Except that people don't deserve that money. Look at what happened to Mako's family.
Elevens finally learned how to FREEDOM.
You act like people are forced to attend Satsuki's school.
People attend it and fight for Satsuki's ideals because she rewards based on merit instead of money or family. If someone doesn't want to live up to Satsuki's ideals they're expelled so no one is forced.
Meritocracy is not socialism.
Even brazil and africa have it better than Satsuki's slums right out of 1984. Well, maybe except the congo.
>People don't deserve money when they work for it
just because that's the way it is in one city doesn't mean it's the way it works in the rest
In war no one has the time to notice you're a dog.
Well, with Money, you could do a lot better than THIS!
That's like saying someone in Libya can't be a mercenary in a conflict taking place in Nigeria because they are both in Africa.
What kind of retarded comparisation is that, they are fighting in Japan. It would be the case if they attacked China or Korea.
That episode was about status, not money.
They're putting their lives on the line to defend their school's city. Takarada is free to throw as much money around as he wants, too.
You know what would be funny? If he had a fantastic relationship with his parents. Like, so good, that people with less stellar relationships would be like, "When will one of them get mauled to death by a pack of cannibalistic senior citizens?" out of pure spite.
But her system is bonkers. Look at Mako and the Fight Club.
Okay? What is wrong with that?
Also, aren't they in post-apocalyptia?
I'm not saying it's perfect, just that it's not socialism like some idiots are asserting.
I bet we can assume his own grandma helped him with the rumor network.
Why? I don't remember anything mentioned about the world being post apocalyptic.
But the whole city will collapse even if he wins.
This dumbass is creating money for the sole purpose of using it as ammunition. But the more money he creates, the less value it has (that's devaluation for you), and eventually everyone in the city will be poor.
Best leader ? I don't think so.
How do you know he's printing money to shoot it, and not opening up his personal vaults?
Will Monkey ever succeed at anything?
Is diversity good essentially?
Because he's using his own currency that he creates.
That he has created years ago.
Doesn't mean he can't print more whenever he pleases.
Currencies are a sham anyway and working for them is philistine.
A lot of the money shot as ammunition will be lost in the fires anyway. Also, he already said that his family's conglomerate is rich enough to rebuild the entire city. He knows that city's nothing without its people.
You can expect someone who says that money is everything won't just print more whenever he wants to.
There's no rule that says dogs CAN"T be mercenaries.
News flash, Satsuki isn't the good guy and she's planning to take control over each district, regardless of how happy and well-off they are.
>Satsuki is ruling by fucking communism
No. That's wrong.
Communism is a classless society where all people are considered equal and everyone gets the same amount of income/supplies/quality of life. There is no private property or ownership, and there is supposed to be no leader, instead lead by the people.
What Satsuki is doing is a fascist authoritarian meritocracy, demanding absolute and total loyalty to the state. She rules with an iron fist, is the symbol of the state, is the state, and has set up a strict class structure where your standing in life is determined by how well you do.
satsuki a shit
Takarada is the hero KLK needs.
Satsuki is the people's hero.
To quote some anon: If Trigger wanted us to feel that he was a villain, they fucked up real hard.
The guy has no basic understanding of modern economics. If you are the creator and the distributor of the currency, it doesn't matter how much you create, so much as how much is in circulation. If you throw/shoot MILLIONS of your currency onto the street, you are rapidly devaluating your currency through inflation.
And he has the gall to mock the national currency for being devaluated
That scene really made me question KLK's budget.
That and the copy and paste citizens
KLK's budget is 3 cup ramen a piece of string and few buttons.
I know we're supposed to hate him (see him as an obstacle, I mean), but how could we?
He's funny, his people are all fucking rich, his city is successful, he stands off against Sanegayama without fear and he dresses like a fucking chief.
'Good' for what?
So does that mean Honnouji is Sparta?
That's because the viewers are part of his corrupt society.
>Not every episode
13 was almost literally a slideshow with some tweening and looping. There was like 2 minutes of actual animation there.
Sparta slaughters its weak. Satsuki just throws them in slums. Sparta was all based around war. Honnouji is based around order. I would liken Honnouji to Nazi Germany if you took out the racism or Fascist Italy
That's just your understanding of economics.
He's going about it his own way and his city seems pretty fucking happy for it.
They aren't forced to attend her school, but Satsuki's system doesn't just exist at Hounnouji. Did you forget that Satsuki is trying to enforce her ideology on the entire country? She's even trying to "liberate" the Osakans despite the fact that no-one there apparently has any problem with the current system.
he's been fucking blowing money and printing it without it becoming liquid debt like japanese and American currency, I'd be fucking pissed if Satsuki bought him out while owning that shithole. I hope they are worth more than the fucking kiryuins...megane 3 star crashed their stock before, surely there is hope
Satsuki a shit. Dosh guy is the better ruler
>his city seems pretty fucking happy for it.
We don't know how happy the city really is at this point. All we see is people doing anything for money. Which is normal because it's unlikely you can live without it and also greed strong.
I stand corrected
I really like his VA
>>throwing money into a market that isn't expanding at the same rate creates inflation
>that's just your understanding of it
Don't fuck with Grannies
Compare the working lower class in there who all live in a somewhat safe environment and has a job, to the lower class in Honnouji who live in the Slumps and have to resort to stealing in order to get anything.
Nazi era germany seems to be the only subject they've been shown talking about iirc
Trigger sure has something against greed/money.
Mako first and now this guy.
Seems like his entire city just loves having money, inflation or not.
Fat overfed grannies have a lot of energy and time to dedicate to whatever cause catches their fancy. Damn right they aren't to be underestimated.
Throwing them out is essentially death, you do not have access to the benefits and live a life in the fucking slums.
Honnouji's main purpose has been this: war.
I don't care how small the budget is as long as they spend a enough of it on animating Takarada's face.
She hasn't learned her lesson
It's because they have none.
That's because Trigger has no money.
Well yes, they're thinking that their own lot will improve, without considering the far-reaching consequences of what they're partaking in. But to be honest, the guy's probably hoping to win quickly, before too much newly printed money is thrown into the system, so that the repercussions aren't as far-reaching.
He also seems to be in a good relationship with the people in his town not just his close subordinates like Satsuki and the Devas
People in Honnouji are either afraid or hate Satsuki
Mako for best female character of the season?
But their own lot's already great.
The guy's beaten the idea of money by turning it into something like marbles. People in his city don't seem to care about its value, just that they have a lot of it.
Mako is God.
Yeah. I wish it was Nui, but Mako is just clearly better.
She's great, but I wish she'd stop interrupting serious parts with her fucking bullshit.
>People in Honnouji are either afraid or hate Satsuki
I get the impression that they love Satsuki, even in the slums.
>But their own lot's already great.
That's where the greed comes in. And I don't buy the marbles thing, it may seem that way but once they're actually reached by the consequences and their new money can't buy them more than they had before, or perhaps even less, then I doubt they'll be as happy. Then again, you might be right, I just don't think it's time to make the judgment yet.
I'm glad she participates in fights rather than go "RYUUKO-CHAN ABUNAI" all the time.
Im assuming anything he prints is just a drop in the bucket if he has massive amounts backed by a debt free organization already and can still thrive better than the yen...he fucking shoots money at his enemies and was willing to throw millions at thousands of citizens like it was nothing
>implying you can defeat a capitalistic city
>implying you can fucking a MERCHANT city
>they love Satsuki, even in the slums
Pretty sure thats wrong. But okay
We finally got to Inferno Cop levels of animation.
That was sarcasm, right?
She never, ever has.
That's baseless. We don't actually ever see how anyone from the slum feels about Satsuki, except Mako. And we can hardly trust Mako's opinions to be representative of the norm.
>betrays Ryuko for fucking nothing
why the battles were so childish
why gamamori team got the lamest weapon
why wouyld anyone think that using a meat armor is cool and should be on TV
Nonon is best girl
Ep 15 better have more Nudists.
Why couldn't you? Death is death, regardless of your political alignment.
>why the battles were so childish
Because the entire show is.
look what mako managed to buy with a just a handful, that should give at least a base value for his currency
Jokes don't make anything less serious.
Exactly, it depends on hos quickly he wins or not. The money he's thrown out now isn't going to affect the economy much, but if it drags out he'll have to constantly supply his mercenaries with more and more money, and the inflation will build up. He can't afford a drawn-out war, or at least that's my theory. KLK isn't entirely predictable like that.
Could Mako beat Accelerator?
We've got the IC-tier animation back when Nui showed up, maybe earlier.
nonon a bitch
>Literally 12 years old
Being backed by a debt free organization has nothing to do with it.
>he fucking shoots money at his enemies and was willing to throw millions at thousands of citizens like it was nothing
Yes, and its going to come back and bite him in the ass when economics kick in and his dollar becomes absolutely worthless. You cannot distribute millions of dollars without an expanding market without and not cause post-WWI Germany levels of inflation
>why wouyld anyone think that using a meat armor is cool and should be on TV
It's a fucking cultural fight.
>implying the money won't end up being destroyed in the war and the value of his money won't go up
>Jokes don't make anything less serious
Look up pacing
>why wouyld anyone think that using a meat armor is cool and should be on TV
You don't want a food fight TV show? I mean, it'll never happen, all the kids would do the same in school, but god damn if it wouldn't be awesome.
That meats giving me a heart attack just by looking at it.
Except the city is being ruined at the moment, so construction and renovation market is expanding with every bullet fired.
With the city destroyed and with more chances of jobs probably yes
I was thinking of this specifically, whereas in other shows the assisting characters would just stand around.
>all this talk about inflation
I doubt KLK is going to dive into serious economics. The point is that a Osaka people are whores doing the bidding for a rich guy and wealth is not easily defeated. In fact I have no idea how Satsuki is going to show these people the light.
Well rich people do tend to be assholes since being a dick who is willing to exploit people and ruin their lives makes you rich.
Pacing is something else. You're talking about atmosphere.
gamamori fighting style was super childish
She is just going to throw in the Slums anybody who doesnt want to cooperate
She is not about to ask anybody's opinion about whether they want to be conquered or not
The point is that that's a complete misrepresentation of that guy. Osaka guy is an investor and he gives many more fucks about his city than Satsuki with her meritocracy. Anyone who looks at their economic principals and thinks that Satsuki is more righteous than him is a fucking retard.
Getting whipped until he comes and unleashing the force of his mighty tentacle cocks?
>Except the city is being ruined at the moment, so construction and renovation market is expanding with every bullet fired.
Yes, but that benefits other cities who with intact industries and resources can supply Osaka with what's necessary for rebuilding. A blown-up country doesn't stimulate its own economic growth just by being a pile of bullet holes.
He clawed and fought his way to the top, now he does what he pleases because he won out. It's always best to have what others can't.
As long as Osakan people are there, the market is intact.
I would like to direct your attention the German mark during the Weimar Republic.
They were forced to pay for the damages after WW1. That obviously increases the construction and renovation markets. But Germany printed so much currency that the exchange rate was 4,200,000,000,000 Marks to 1 US dollar. Having one or two markets have a boom while all the other markets are being blown up is not a cause to print and distribute millions of dollars.
Castles made of sand, baby.
>Mako dealing with money episode
>Osaka tycoon episode
Are you trying to tell me something, Trigger
Not if the marketplaces and the stores and the factories are destroyed. You need to produce stuff that reaches a functioning market to stimulate growth, too much destruction and you have no production. Then you have to borrow money and buy/hire help from outside to rebuild, and THEN you can rebuild your own market. Having demand (the people) is pointless if you have no way of providing supply (production).
Except it seems like he blows his money normall to have money guns and shit set up...I'd think the inflation wasn't affected that much he seems way more competent than the others as well...you cant blame it all on monkey
>You're talking about atmosphere
Yeah, I forgot I said the word atmosphere
His greatest sin is he accepts the oppressive world order of Ragyou as it is. As wise and benevolent as he is to his people, he is still ultimately benefiting from the world order maintained by the shackling of humanity through life fiber clothing; with no intention of changing this state of affairs for the sake of the many and instead choosing to protect the sake of the few.
This is what makes Satsuki's fight a noble war. She refuses to accept the world as it is because she knows it is capable of a greater destiny - not a fate of false peace and monetary comfort and artificial abundance, but a fate of constant struggle to do better and to achieve more than an end as pigs in fine clothing.
She is ruling it by social darwinism.
Satsuki is Ayn Rand.
This episode was so disappointing:
>No glorious samurai in Kyoto
>No glorious rohirrim style cattle charge in Kobe
>No Nudist Beach cells activating to protect last free schools
Zeni-kun is great though
Then why does Ragyou want him out of Osaka? We still don't know just what Satsuki's vision is.
Satsuki is even more of an elitist cunt. She's just less subtle about it. Capitalism wins over fascism.
But Satsuki isn't going around self-inserting herself into fantasies where every powerful man in the world wants to fuck her.
Are you implying the contrary? What are you going to buy with the money that you have worked so har-eh, what are you going to buy with your money? Something that you don't need? Something to make you feel better and calm your envy? Another screen to get away from reality?
well, we don't KNOW that she isn't
You make it sound like a bad thing.
she is self inserting herself into the role of the powerful man who wants to fuck Ryuuko
Many merchant cities have been defeated, hell Carthage was know for being a merchant city and Rome killed all its defenders, burned it to the ground, enslaved its population and salted the earth it stood on.
Well yes, individuals don't achieve anything. Satsuki isn't furthering any destiny of humanity, she's making a tiny group feel better about themselves by profiting from the work of the "pig masses." Her lie isn't nearly as good as Takarada's.
>killed all its defenders, burned it to the ground, enslaved its population and salted the earth it stood on.
I hope Honnouji will do this so much.
I was disappointed we went see more from the diviners and monks in Kyoto
Its more, people are dumb and rally towards the easy way.
Satsuki is Imperial Japan, authoritarian, expansionist and orchestrating a surprise attack
Takarada is the US, capitalist, decadent, fighting with its money and carpet bombing.
That's exactly what I was thinking for the rest of the episode as soon as they started shooting money.
Satsuki is, at this point, ostensibly fighting for her mother's sake. Yeah we all know she's going to betray REVOCS and all that eventually, but portraying Takarada as supportive or accepting of Ragyou is wrong. His conglomerate is directly opposed to the Kiryuuin's.
But Satsuki isn't a shitty writer.
>Takarada is the US, capitalist, decadent, fighting with its money and carpet bombing.
No, this is the US.
>His greatest sin is he accepts the oppressive world order of Ragyou as it is. As wise and benevolent as he is to his people, he is still ultimately benefiting from the world order maintained by the shackling of humanity through life fiber clothing; with no intention of changing this state of affairs for the sake of the many and instead choosing to protect the sake of the few.
This applies to Satsuki directly. She's fucking supporting it. don't fall for her shitty 1984 speeches.
There is nothing noble about subjagating people because you have a god complex and a skewed belief system
>not fighting war with its treasury
That their treasury was shit in comparison doesn't mean they funded their war through different means.
>Those background characters
Thank you based Trigger for this joke and scene as a whole.
Satsuki leads the Nudist Beach and will soon challenge her mother's rule.
>OH MY GOD
>Mikisugi quits his disguise
>Shirt spontaneously opens
>Purple man thong
I wonder what episode Nudist Beach will actually get involved probably in the next two.
Those football players needed fucking Roy Bromwell, then they would've stood a chance against Gamagoori.
All muriiccans are blacks.
You're missing the point. They still use money but the society revolves around FOR THE EMPEROR NIPPON BANZAI.
>america in anime before
>white and blonde with blue eyes
>america in anime nowadays
>turbo niggers playing handegg
what happened /a/?
>It's a good thing that Gamagoori is taking over schools, cus Kobe is going to take him to school and teach him a lesson about DEFENSE! And I guess how to love a well cooked steak too. I've never had a Kobe steak, but I heard they're delicious, like god fuel or something.
>That's why the KOBE FOOTBALL GIANTS are my STONE COLD LOCK OF THE CENTURY OF THE WEEK!
>Not that you need school or anything. That's for nerds and losers.
No, that's just the opium of the masses. Behind the scenes it's still a matter of money, rich influential families, politics, and all the usual.
The U.S. kept goofing. The U.S. has been steadily making a fool itself for a few decades.
>inb4 this ends up on /pol/ and
>muh football americans
I really don't want to see this /a/
it's ogre anon, the happening it's upon us
No, see, it's fine because they're football players. American athletes are usually black in anime
Just like real life.
Do you really judge your country's value based on how nips portray it?
Is it Thursday yet?
>>Mikisugi quits his disguise
I'm upset, Sensei looked better.
>Neo-Kenesians in a nutshell
Fuck you too moot.
I AM IMMUNE TO YOUR BULLETS!
Also, dat Chaos;Head reference.
wasn't that the point of the natural elections?
No the point of the natural elections was to reorder the command hierarchy so that the most battle capable would replace officers who originally rose to higher ranks through the school system. Its more like a 'Purge', except instead of Satsuki ordering the executions its social Darwinism doing the dirty work for her.
Gridiron football and association football are both football.
So why are the elite 4 still in power if they all got their shit slapped?
Ryuuko bailed from the system and Nui works for someone else.
His voice was cooler too...
Ryuuko's power was still far higher than theirs, and most held their ground and more. Satsuki literally said there was no disgrace in their defeat.
Besides, she pretty much knew they were going to lose. She wanted to improve the 3 star uniforms up to standard, eg Sanageyama out pacing his uniform, Gama having a flaw in his uniform etc
Your friend is a retard for using things he doesn't even understand. He could be part of a botnet or leaking his data all over the place.
But thats stupid, change is possible only within same weight category. Lower ranks cant do shit against higher, who can prey on them with no problems. Possible talenys are lost to powerlevels.
Because there's no-one to replace them.
The Spartans were pretty retarded and inbred.
Ryuuko gets pierced by Satsuki's sword, uses the chance to slice Satsuki's hands off, her wounds are too severe, Senketsu decides to give up his life for her and does a reverse "synchronize": instead of Ryuuko's blood going to him, his Life Fiber goes to her. They defeat Satsuki, but Senketsu "crumbles" after the battle, saying a sorrowful good-bye to Ryuuko. Satsuki runs away, Sensei arrives to see Ryuuko alone and crying, with a red mark on her chest but before he can do anything Mako runs and hugs Ryuuko instead.
TO BE CONTINUED
Nah, Takarada is an enemy of Revocs.
The issue with Satsuki is that she's using oppression to end oppression. She can be completely noble minded, but her means are fucking disgusting
Which is why Takarada laughs Monkey off when Monkey goes on about Satsuki's New World Order, he sees that it's just buisiness as usual.
You call his accepting the world as it is his greatest sin, I say it's his greatest strength
It's pretty clear Satsuki will lose, probably due to Ryuuko. I hope Takarada gets to help her beat Satsuki, though. He's a pretty cool guy
I wonder why this guy was so powerful and boss when the leaders of the other schools were so weak? Aside from Money > Steak > Mythology.
Eugh... don't be so sure about that. This could be a WOW THEIR POWERS ARE EVEN NOW OH LOOK IT'S NUI I GUESS THIS FIGHT IS A DRAW TEEHEE
Greed is a strong trait for pigs in human clothing.
I doubt Nui will pop out of nowhere (again). "Oh look, there is possible intense moment, that will keep viewers on the edge of their seat - RELEASE THE MAKO!"-scenario is more possible.
Humans in human clothing. He embraces greed, wears it as his armor, so it can't be used against
Monkey plz go
Only an American pig would defend this
job la job
Zenji is best kill la kill.
Takarada congomerate > Kiryuin conglomerate
Germanfag, actually. Satsuki plz go, you're like Hitler but shitty. 0/10 would not cuddle in bed with
Just wait until Satsuki tells Nui she's FIRED
>would rather cuddle Hitler
The Germans are pretty scary people.
I hope Takarada gets to call Satsuki out for her city being a shanty town infested shithole. It annoys me that Trigger stops showing Satsuki's flaws almost immediately.
YEAH THIS IS THE FIRST TIME TRIGGER HAS LET US DOWN IN THE BUDGET DEPARTMENT
>Thousand Year Door.gif
He wasn't. Naniwa Kinman fell more-or-less just as quickly as the other two high schools. the difference is that Takarada was able to conscript forces from outside of school.
I really want him to be a recurring character.
please save him ryuuko, or make the crab formidable, or bring in an osaka tiger
Kobe did too. They had MURICA backing them up, the Russian Maifya... whole bunch of fellas
Best CO power.
You're right, I forgot about that. I guess the lesson here is that Osakan grannies > baka gaijin.
>Communism is a classless society where all people are considered equal and everyone gets the same amount of income/supplies/quality of life. There is no private property or ownership, and there is supposed to be no leader, instead lead by the people.
>Confusing theoretical Communism with real world Communism.
Good job being retarded.
niggers and white niggers added to meathead hicks
Hmm, wonder why that didn't work.
Next episode will be Nudists. It must be.
Nudists vs Nui, all episode.
>money is bad
>Zeni's region is by far the best for the average folk
Seriously. Being paid to do something is a lot better than being told to do something.
No, you don't get it, she's basically enslaving the poor and does not give a shit about making them equal, so it's capitalism. Let me guess, you wish everyone in Satsuki's society was living relatively equally, is that it, you're the communist, shithead.
>Communism is a classless society where all people are considered equal and everyone gets the same amount of income/supplies/quality of life. There is no private property or ownership, and there is supposed to be no leader, instead lead by the people.
Are you one of those idiots that keeps saying communism has never been tried? It is useless arguing what it theoretically could be when we already know what will happen in reality: a classless society is impossible. You might as well argue that zero is an abstract entity that can never truly be reached and therefor we should stop using it in math.
The money is being used like ammunition, as in, being destroyed as soon as it is used. Even if it does litter the streets, he can simply issue a new currency to control the inflation. To quote Milton Friedman, "Nothing is easier to produce than green pieces of paper." They would make for great weapons because you could have so many of them so fast.
Can´t wait to see our glorious leader Satsuki beating the shit out of this fucking kike
Why are the generic girl soldiers so cute?
They had brown hair before.
>Being paid to do something is a lot better than being told to do something.
This is what capitalist pigs actually believe.
>a fascist that is part of a fashion empire trying to conquer the country is somehow more noble than an investor protecting his people
Really? I mean, really?
It's time to get some Milton Friedman up in this bitch for you idiots:
But Satsuki is doing so through law and coercion. Ayn Rand was all about Social Darwinism in the context of a free society, where she said that the government should never step in to try and equalize people that are not equal.
Christ, I thought /pol/ didn't know much about political theory.
>Naniwa Kinman fell more-or-less just as quickly as the other two high schools.
No he put up a pretty good fight. And that was before he brought in even more mercenaries.
On the other hand Honnouji's forces were already split in 3 while he had his entire school AND the city.
Consider that the creators are Japanese.
>hey man, i'll give you $1000 to defend my city
>hey scum, get the fuck in the truck, we're attacking someone's city
Choice is a powerful thing. I find it funny that you want choices but would take a society based on coercion over one based on freedom.
>Satsuki has spent the entire series preparing for this first strik
>every single strike force was surprised by the first thing their respective high school to conquer did
Nice scouting there.
But it's a false choice. And you can decline in both cases, and in both cases you end up in a slum starving if you refuse.
Also note that it's def. not 1 of the same dogs that were fucking in ep.1
yes but in one the illusion is pretty
Well yeah, because in capitalism, you don't have the right to other people's stuff. Therefore you have to bargain for it, either through products of your own or through your labor.
In other systems, if you don't do what you are told, you get thrown in jail or worse. There is no bargain. You do what you are told and get what you get. If you cannot see how one is worse than the other, I implore you to go to my home country of Venezuela and enjoy living in the middle of a rainforest while there is no toilet paper on the shelves.
Well there's more than one way to make money but there is only one way to obey your overlord.
I suppose at the end of the day it depends on the overlord. Which is why such systems suck on the long term.
Except in one case, you still end up in a slum.
He's not fucking drafting them.
He is paying them to protect themselves really...or live in a shanty town as 3rd class merchants shuffling scraps
They are all fucking small business owners for fucks sake, they aren't doing too bad seeing the shit mako was able to buy with a handful and the fact he is just going spaghetti throwing it everywhere
To be fair, most people have no knowledge of Ayn Rand at all.
>He is paying them to protect themselves really...or live in a shanty town as 3rd class merchants shuffling scraps
This is a bit difficult to judge because we don't know all that much about the KLK world. Monkey was very surprised to see 'civilians' joining the fight. It's more like Takarade brought in people that would normally have nothing to do with the conflict between the two schools but they join in purely for the money.
They are living their lives for the simple purpose of getting by. They are nothing more than pigs living on entitlement money to fuel the artificial economy. These people are being paid to support an infrastructure which exists to hide the misery of their abject existences from them.
If they must fight and die, they should die for a higher cause. They should die for Satsuki's cause: one which shall hold everlasting meaning next to the triumphs of Alexander the Great, Oda Nobunaga, and Comrade Stalin.
He's paying them money he prints and controls to defend his power base. Satsuki's army isn't there to destroy the city, attack the merchants or even kill the students. They're their to subjugate one particular person. The leader.
but its pretty much assured when Satsuki takes over an area, everyone including adults is affected.
And change established way of life in this region, which citizens defend.
He is the power base. He runs the economy with his economic policies. Local governance is run on his administrative policies. The people's moral and long-term growth is driven by his long term vision and planning. Satsuki ripped the fucking heart out of the city.
>They are living their lives for the simple purpose of getting by. They are nothing more than pigs living on entitlement money to fuel the artificial economy. These people are being paid to support an infrastructure which exists to hide the misery of their abject existences from them.
And you think Satuski' society has some higher purpose? Like what exactly? Is success, prosperity, a better future for your children, some lesser goal than wanting the approval of your fucking mother? Satsuki's people are pawns, nothing more. They are brainwashed and made to obey no different than North Korea. She talks about how great their society is but compare her ultra militarized zone vs. Osaka with its small businesses, thriving economy, and free citizens.
There is no "triumph" to these warlords. It is sensationalist bullshit that will end in more bloodshed when the empire splinters and the factions re-ignite their war with each other. What is the end goal? What are they attempting to accomplish? You would take a fashion empire ruling the world for no reason other than it sounds really inspiring? Are you that delusional?
The citizens didn't lift a finger to defend themselves or Takarade until he put a monetary reward on the table. Such weak resolve is no match for Kiryuuin Satsuki.
They didn't though. Not a single one of them thought he was worth defending by his own merits or the merits of his policies. He had to offer a direct reward for participation in his defense.
>Not a single one of them thought he was worth defending by his own merits or the merits of his policies. He had to offer a direct reward for participation in his defense.
I think this will test Satsuki in a way she has never been tested before. How can she appeal to people that don't care that she is pretty, or nice, or powerful, or is part of a large empire? They won't be lead around by her sensationalist bullshit, they will want something tangible, and the question is if she even has anything to really offer.
And now he has put money on the table they fight with a smile on their face unlike Satsuki's legion of ground down drones.
Seems more like capitalistic jewry to me.
They aren't poor fucking proles like Satsukis subjects, they are all essentially small business owners.
You can't rule if you don't subjugate/appease the populace anon, and I'm assuming Satsuki wouldn't treat them the same.
When did everyone get the idea that he is just printing money out now since this engagement?
He obviously understands how inflation works and has been throwing his money around like this for awhile now.
I'm assuming his family isn't to be fucked with either, simply judging by the fact that they merely exist when a powerhouse like the Kiryuin family is around (oligarchic situations like these normally have giant as fuck market gaps...his family has nearly as much or more power than Satsuki's) and the big ass tower that looms over the city like the REVOCs building.
>Shogun 2 Castle Seige.jpg
Why didn't they just climb over the walls?
Look at these free people. He even calls them pawns.
They aren't even working for 'real' money, just his very own Dogecoin.
His tower is smaller than the RECOVs building, it's gaudy as fuck and seems to be a cheap ripoff of other architecture.
If I had to guess it's probably going to turn out that his family isn't actually all that wealthy anymore, they've set up their own monetary system that they can control, and if this kid is any indication they're living their lives like Donald Trump, throwing money left and right in a desperate attempt to make sure everyone knows they're wealthy.
He knows about inflation, but he doesn't seem to have anything he can personally brag about in terms of achievements. He's living off the wealth of his family, and obviously taking all of his cues on how to act from media about wealthy people.
>blinded by money
I'm not surprised that people don't get what freedom means and take it for granted that if someone does something they wouldn't do, then they must have been deluded into doing it.
Satsuki is just as greedy as him. He has money earn him his power while Satsuki just rules over her serfdom.
What is greed etc etc.
It's probably post-apocalypse. Otherwise you wouldn't have all these weird high schools controlling towns and such.
Satsuki runs an entitlement program based on merit, directly tied to the individual success and ambition of children. And by militarizing schools and academies, Satsuki has essentially drafted all young citizens into military service or risk getting tossed out of school. Over time, her policies will cement a military tradition of family honor, personal responsibility, and child raising as adults make more children to try to promote themselves higher on the social ladder, children become more ambitious and disciplined, and Satsuki grows an army that will eventually take over the world.
megane is going to make his stock fall and the people will abandon him.
Burning down the gates and charging in was always far better than climbing the walls in Shogun 2, that was for situational attacks on specific undefended points of the wall, or maybe tieing up some archers with ashigaru while your samurai burnt down the gate, not wasting your whole army on sending them all up like the AI.
His family seems to have taught him something about finance/leadership for him to orchestrate everything better than the other schools.
He also was resourceful enough to link up a grapevine of grannies when they DDOS the communication in the area.
He obviously understands economics and probably has a pretty good hold on politics.
regardless of his tactics, he acted as a pretty good commander in the face of Satsuki compared to the other schools presented in the episode, regardless of how he boosted his troop morale (money of course).
One thing that must be said, he is a pretty competent leader and a tactical mastermind; I really fucking hope he is recurring
I was thinking some shit like this, expecting it really after what he did to REVOCs
Best side character since boxer guy from the first episode that nobody remembers the name of
It's pretty much just standard Sengoku shit. Satsuki is trying to build honoburu japanese society, but is blocked by the Buddhists, foreign influence, and regional merchants.
I like the execution of that style. It made the ep more entertaining. It's used in the right spots.
Same. Greasy as fuck and 200% fitting.
Trigger and its show is pushing individualism and heart-over-material.
>a pretty competent leader and a tactical mastermind
I love him as a character. But all he's doing is throwing money around, literally. There's nothing clever going on here. He's just paying lots and lots of people to fight, overwhelming the attacking clubs.
IIRC that equals rape by archers/cavalry/spearmen everytime
In every fucking game.
Artillery always takes too fucking long if you aren't smashing gates.
I'm not even a lolbertarian but he is using the free market to effectively lead, you really can't fault him for this....if there were repercussions, sure, but there seem to be none.
Should've seen the [C] threads
>I really fucking hope he is recurring
We've only got 10 episodes left though.
Guys remember how Ragyou assumed that Satsuki has a good reason to take on this region last?
What if she'll somehow recruit the Takarada Conglomorate to boost her ability to stand against REVOCS?
>Over time, her policies will cement a military tradition of family honor, personal responsibility, and child raising as adults make more children to try to promote themselves higher on the social ladder, children become more ambitious and disciplined, and Satsuki grows an army that will eventually take over the world.
>political systems dictate basic human instinct
No, huge fucking no. Political systems can only influence how people will purse their self interest, not if they will pursue it at all. The reality of the situation is that after Satsuki's reign, her empire will crumble due to internal power struggles and incompetency. Meanwhile, Osaka will be laughing at them as they continue to increase their standards of living.
>I love him as a character. But all he's doing is throwing money around, literally. There's nothing clever going on here. He's just paying lots and lots of people to fight, overwhelming the attacking clubs.
Brute force has always been the best military strategy. The only bad thing you can say about it is that it isn't always successful. In must cases though, it is.
>They aren't even working for 'real' money, just his very own Dogecoin.
With the exception of his money having actual worth.
There's no point in thinking what comes after if Satsuki hasn't finished yet. Hell she seems to be fast tracking the whole process to take on REVOCS asap. Her immediate agenda is probably to re-enact the Third Reich and take bitches out while she can keep momentum high.
You have to mix depending on the composition of the enemy, but principally the majority of your forces are taking gates because having them all climb means you're losing men that don't need to be lost through fallng.
Light infantry like Yari Ashigaru will make it to the walls and climb faster, you take at most two units and rush the walls above the gate you're focusing while heavier soldiers light the gate and ranged units attack while you climb.
Preferably, you're outnumbering the enemy to such a degree that you're able to spread such attacks out to every wall, if you can and the enemy cannot match you to each wall then you burn the gate and rush in.
If the enemy cedes the walls to hold the gates exclusively, you maintain the two ashigaru to climb the walls as the gates are broken to allow for flanking, or to divert forces from the gate.
How the fuck is it capitalism? Do you even know what capitalism is? Just because it isn't communism doesn't mean it's not capitalism. Holy shit there isn't just two possible systems in the world.
It's still fiat. As will become obvious next ep.
Like all money.
>Fascism is capitalism
>Capitalism involves enslaving the poor
>Like all money.
Well, all money that matter.
What fucks me up when I run on the walls is the fucking bottleneck, you can't move your forces and they are disorganized as shit, hence I just break through the gates. how do you effectively use ninjas in game? They just seem like a liability
I doubt its going to become worthless unless Satsuki renders the organization worthless
>There's no point in thinking what comes after if Satsuki hasn't finished yet. Hell she seems to be fast tracking the whole process to take on REVOCS asap. Her immediate agenda is probably to re-enact the Third Reich and take bitches out while she can keep momentum high.
We don't know she will. All we know is that she currently works for her mother. And really, it doesn't matter either way. Satsuki runs a meritocracy but it is very much a dictatorial system. Compare the abundance of Osaka vs. the slums that comprise 90% of Satsuki's school.
You use ninjas by and as a diversion. You don't need to kill everyone in the castle, you need to take the central control point and hopefully hold it against whatever force the enemy throws to attempt to stop you.
Ninjas can scale the walls without loss at incredible speed, and with the right environment will do so undetected. Once they're up and on top their bombs can let them route the unit your enemy tries to kill them with, forcing him to commit more men away from the main force at the walls.
The students still lost to Honnouji despite all the money. The combat civilians will fall as well when reinforcements from Gamagoori and Nonon arrive.
>No, you don't get it, she's basically enslaving the poor and does not give a shit about making them equal, so it's capitalism
Oh god my brain. The lower classes benefit the most under capitalism because the rich would still be rich under any other system but the poor could either be living in homes with flat screen tv's and an abundance of food or in twig villages that they come close to starving inside of every winter.
Yes, only fiat money matters. In fact, commodity money is so irrelevant and worthless that I bet you can just roll ride up to Fort Knox and take as much as you want! They're just dying to give it away!
Gold isn't money. You can't spend it anywhere. It's tradable goods with a value.
You can't spend fiat "anywhere" either.
If Ryuuko's involvement doesn't/didn't fuck anything up which I'm pretty sure will have some effect. She took out all of the augmented uniforms and leveled the playing field somewhat... depending on how trigger writes this shit, they could be able to put up a fight.
the crab fight might be interrupted, hopefully before satsuki fucks it up in the most predictable manner. Its only a matter of time before Nui shows up too..
I don't think you understand what the word "anywhere" means.
I was afraid that Ryuuko's involvement fucked up the other 2 attacks. But even after she had left we got the radio message that Gamagoori and Nonon were finished with the other 2 cities.
Only Monkey couldn't succeed. You don't fuck with Osaka, son.
Satsukifags are just pigs in human clothing.
Kill la Kill is a show of little consequence. Nothing the characters do see to have any effect on the plot.
Both fights were basically already over, and it seemed like the augmented uniforms just made it easier for the Honnouji side to win.
Remember that the invasion was going to happen before Senketsu was divied up amongst their troops. There's no way they would have launched a campaign if there was no way to win without a magical augmentation they may or may not have ever received.
The way Honnouji was preparing for battle indicates they were stocking up for a long campaign. Its possible that Senketsu's defeat sped up the timetable by leaps and bounds.
>we will never get a Kill La Kill S2 with new MC and shit
all good things must come to an end sometime.
Satsuki told her mother she would subjugate all three within one day before Senketsu broke.
Taking into account sensei abandoned his sensei facade and it's probably on it's wy to osaka, and that next episode is suppposed to be when shit gets real, I hope so.
How is she going to win this? An inspirational speech?
I'M HAVING SUCH A GOOD TIME
I'M HAVING A BALL
GIMME YOUR BLOOD
YOU ARE SO HOT
She will just throw more money at them.
defend this satsukifags
What C;H reference?
That sword is pointed towards Ryoko. She never unsheathes it for anyone else.
It is clear that Satsuki will be revealed to be the evil, power hungry tyrant that she is. The people of Osaka will not be fooled by her words and propaganda, and when they refuse to submit, she will murder them in cold blood.
Zeni already said that the people will fight to the death for their city. I believe him.
At least I hope so, because that would actually be interesting.
They are just blinded by her righteous light. So blinded in fact that they can no longer be blinded by money.
>invades cities to control them
>attacking blind people
Satsuki is the real monster here
They second they picked up weapons they ceased to be become civilians.
>a girl so right, she has to force you to accept her ideals
Yeah, because that has never backfired.
Kill them all, kill all the greedy pigs.
Money is bad, give me all of yours, I will get rid of it for you.
But she didn't mean THAT
>attacking unarmed people
They didn't attack unarmed people.
I want this to play as she slaughters them.
the power of money wasn't enough to save this show's shitty animation
Mako is armed with huge bouncy boobs.
It wasn't a complete unsheath, so it doesn't count. And the unsheath in 12 was against Ryoko.
Third time's the charm apparently though.
Hm. You have a point.
>i'll have to wait till thursday to see more of sensei's nipples
why the fuck did i pick this stupid anime before it ended.
>Calling satsuki communist
>Daughter of a corporate owner
>His intro features quotes from 1984 and the teacher talking about nazi Germany.
Gee i wonder what his militaristic society could be?.
>communism is classless
everyone is equal except for the few who are more equal
satsuki is ruling by true communism. everything is provided by the state and once you have more worth to the state you are more equal
All these episodes and still hasn't come back.
>3 economic tiers
>clean medical facilities on tier 2
>mansions, luxury cars, and night clubs on tier 3
Ah right I thought that you meant it was relevant to the image you posted in >>100481085
Apparently, she unsheathed it for Takarada.
real world equivalent:
north korean farm ping pong tier 1
north korean city ping pong tier 2
kim jong un tier 3
see? it works.
I can tell you right now how Satsuki will win this fight.
She'll just buy them. Like EVERY FUCKING TIME BEFORE INCASE YOU FUCKING THICKOS FORGOT, she'll just outspend everyone else and jew hard to victory. Did you forget the Gamagoori flashback? This is her modus operandi.
I see no civilians in this picture, only pigs.
Joke aside. It's kind of funny how people can argue about which side is right, when none of them are.
Satsuki wants a righteous meritocracy while dosh guy only care about money and power. They're both evil.
Satsuki-sama is the lesser evil though.
Looks like the devas get their uniforms back.
To add to the interest, I'm not too sure Gama and Nonon have actually finished conquering their areas.
Doggy reported that it sounded like they had things wrapped up, but it included nothing about Ryuko, which is an incredibly important piece of information to leave out, especially after she un-senketsu'd both of their forces.
>Or even socialism
>even Juche themself is described as idealistic instead of materialistic and marxist.
Please, if you don't know anything go to /pol/ there is more people like you there.
Or you know, we could actually talk about KLK,
Korea is a demigod cultist state where the leader is the state religion, and the welfare of the people are sacrificed to pay the cost of luxury for their living god. It is the farthest thing from true communism.
That only works when someone calls soccer football.
Both of them already had their trump cards destroyed before Honnouji lost their boosted troops.
That's what I'm afraid of.
I think Trigger REALLY wants to talk about class warfare and glorify the lower classes. I mean, remember the episode where Mako gets evil?. That shit is more socialist than Porco Rosso.
>Kill La Kill S2 with new MC
Ah, but if you remember, they were still fighting in Kyoto.
Only Gama's forces seemed to have everything in hand.
Satsuki is ruling true meritocracy rather than communism. Communism, at least on the theorical side, is about equality, Honnouji is about working and getting what you deserve both through your efforts and by living an examplary life.
Capitalists just frame her as commie because once they get rich they only want to sleep on their jew money while their goons fructify it.
there aren't enough gingers in anime. i thought neil goldman was a great addition as a character.
It reflects on class warfare and social commentary about Japanese societies, but its really just a commentary on their rebellion from GAINAX and the state of the anime industry away from a passionate arthouse genre to a production industry.
Nonon had destroyed the entire school. I think shit was finished there.
but it's labelled as communism.
and don't you think satsuki does the same thing? she does seem to have a thing for standing on top of a huge podium and shining at people
>S2 with Takarada, Maiko, and all the other 2 star club people
God, you could cut the sexual tension between them with a knife.
Ryuuko is Trigger, Isshin is Gainax, Senketsu is Imaishi, REVOCS is the anime industry and Nui is the marketplace.
Nope, they removed all references to communism from their Constitution about three years ago. Now they're officially a "Juche" state, which basically means they worship the Kims as gods.
>Hostile to liberal democracy, socialism, and communism, fascist movements shared certain common features, including the veneration of the state, a devotion to a strong leader, and an emphasis on ultranationalism and militarism. Fascism views political violence, war, and imperialism as a means to achieve national rejuvenation and asserts that stronger nations have the right to expand their territory by displacing weaker nations.
Honnouji is fascist as fuck. As for most 'communist' countries in the world, they aren't very communist but simple totalitarian dictatorships.
Satsuki isn't ruling just for the sake of ruling, she is doing all of this because she believe that it will allow her to create an utopian society where people get rewarded and punished for their actions rather than their social status/money.
That's quite different from a dynasty of rulers who are only interested into keeping their power over their country.
Nui is people who care about quality, so she killed Isshin.
>Implying he's the bad guy
He's just defending his city against invasion.
He really hasn't done anything evil.
Britannian freedom is best freedom. Resistance is futile. all glory to Britannia!
Probably because he's an embodiment of everything she hates.
I hope he doesn't die
How does that explain Mako's arc?
They just destroyed their town fighting off Uzu's group.
Dammit, I've already gotten over feelings like that a long time ago, why do you have to go and bring it back.
I really want Satsuki to be taken down a peg, and Money Bags McJewface is the man to do it
Nui went to kill Ryuuko as soon as she got bored of her. It all makes sense.
But who is Satsuki?
Which was great. Fucking Monkey pretending to take the moral highground
He pretty much used his money and power to become the supreme ruler of his school and city. He is the same as Satsuki, the difference being that he is only interested in his current power and money instead of being an idealistic ruler like Satsuki and that his society is based on money rather than merit.
If Satsuki is evil, then he is just as evil as her.
Ryuko and Mako > lower classes, clothes don't really matter, people is good on the inside.
Nudist beach > revolutionaries, communism, we are all equal with no clothes on.
Satsuki mother and his corporation, as well as the merchant city > capitalism, just the system, one is as good as his clothes.
Satsuki and his system > fascism, people are pigs even if their clothes are good, no pigs are worth of good clothes. Militaristic way of life is the only way of life.
a black woman of colour
Don't worry, we'll get a feature film.
>I CAN'T SEE!
>SOMEONE HELP ME! I CAN'T SEE ANYTHING!
What? Last time I checked, Takarada wasn't launching unprovoked attacks on other cities, just defending his own. You must be one of those people who thinks someone who kills in self defense is evil
Godammit, I need these sides.
I want to join Satsuki, she doesn't seem evil.
Not having her be more of a cunt was a bad decision for an antagonist, she's awesome.
Can't you see what that is? It's batter. With the "Osaka's foodstuffs" thing that's the perfect setup. Gamagoori is about to get deep fried like the one nigger prisoner who tried to shank Rorschach.
i'd laugh if he was the actual villain and ryuuko teams up with REVOCS to defeat the israelites
>the difference being that he is only interested in his current power and money instead of being an idealistic ruler like Satsuki
You just didn't read that part retard.
And yes, creating a dictatorship through money is just as evil as doing it through force.
>Takarada transforms into a giant krab
>He gets crushed by Satsuki and Monkey

And Mako is the new MC.
Yeah, except the ghettos and the fascist-militaristic bend the whole thing has. It's quite literlly Nazi Germany in a new wrapping. Hitler was also pretty charismatic, what does it matter how nice the leader is when the system is bugfuck crazy?
Satsuki's ideals mean nothing. Her city is a shit hole where the weak are executed and brutalized for the hell of it. Meanwhile, in Osaka, conditions are comfortable, and there is plenty of ways to advance yourself without getting a bowl cut and licking Takarada's feet.
Hitler took better care of his people.
The fact that the series has the physics of Paper Mario make the suffering of poor people sort of trivilized.
"his people" in bold underlined italics in 72 font
>>Ryuuko shows up, jobs Monkey in one hit
It would be
>Ryuuko shows up, Monkey jobs
Get your wrestling lingo straight.
That's just presumption on your part. The only thing we know about Osaka is that Takarada used his father's influence and money to become it's leader. We also know that he's ready to pay unrelated civilians into becoming his personal guard to defend his interests.
If he's ready to do this kind of thing, I wouldn't be suprised to see him abusing his power by "buying" himself some entertainments.
Meanwhile in Honnouji even if you are poor you can advance yourself if you have enough ressource. Sure you'll be under Satsuki's order, but so far it wasn't shown as being particulary harsh (the "no late day" was the only really harsh and unfair thing in Honnouji).
So yeah, you guys need to stop defending a villain we know next to nothing about just because he looks slightly less evil than another villain.
>there is plenty of ways to advance yourself without getting a bowl cut and licking Takarada's feet.
Although that's still probably one of the best ways to get a head, that and the precise application of backstabbing and remorselessly eliminating the competition. It is a merchant city after all.
>So yeah, you guys need to stop defending a villain we know next to nothing about just because he looks slightly less evil than another villain.
It's just because they want to be Takarade. Greed is truly a scary motivation.
Why was he so pissed off at Ryuuko?
See this is my main problem. I'm too nice. I need to be more of a dick and then I'd probably be in better financial shape.
God, when I saw Ryuuko smashing his face, I was scared he would get jobbed.
Good think Satsuki will be the one to get her ass kicked by developed Ryuuko.
>And yes, creating a dictatorship through money is just as evil as doing it through force.
He isn't a dictator though. He is simply the head of a major company that is willing to pay the people in order to defend their city.
Other than getting her bike in his face?
She's working against the war effort and being chaotic as usual.
>If he's ready to do this kind of thing, I wouldn't be suprised to see him abusing his power by "buying" himself some entertainments.
He as so far followed all the principles of nonaggression. He didn't hire snipers to keep his civilians in line, he is simply paying them, i.e. giving them the choice of doing it or not. Meanwhile, we know for sure that Satsuki forces her people to war.
Explain to me how the big three were somehow seen as threats or obstacles?
Mr. Krab's school is the only one that showed any sort of resistance. The other two could have been solo'd by a three star.
Its funny how capitalist pigs have to pay people to defend their own city. Capitalists have no sense of pride or patriotism.
THAT FEEL WHEN SATSUKI IS GOD /a/ NOT READY FOR NEW WORLD ORDER
If some Kobe student just ran up and sucker punched him after that tire BURN, it would be icing on the already delicious FUCK GAMA cake.
Satsuki wanted to subjugate all of Japan's major academic centers for a complete monopoly. Since she intends to militarize all academies, the only possible conclusion is that she wants to draft the country's youth for a large scale conflict.
She ruined his punishment boner.
It's funny how pinko sheep have to execute people to serve in their own army. Communists have no sense of pride or humanity
Only cowards are executed!
It's funny how you think your opinions should be backed by the threat of death.
But he enjoys getting hit.
The real question is
What the fuck is the army doing
Not at the same time as he's hitting other people.
I thought the naturals election would've taught you that!
Army's got better things to do than get killed.
This is a world run by corporations.
Monkey's army is completely destroyed. Nonon and Gamagoori are currently subjugating Kobe and Kyoto, and Doggy's squad is about to initialize operation kick Satsuki while she's down
I mean the JSDF, the police, the gubmint, ANYTHING that imposes some sort of order.
I fucking expected Gamagoori to meet some sort of Osaka'n Inspector Zenigata-expy and they'd JUSTICE AND RULES at each other for hours on end.
I wonder if Doggy's squad is the equivalent of the SS.
>Monkey's army is completely destroyed.
Na, its just spread out over the whole city, the group Matoi took out was nowhere near Monkey himself.
Huh. I'll take that. By "S2", I was imagining brand new characters and no real appearances of the ones we know and love.
Even with more Fukuroda and Hakodate, S2 can be SoL with Ryuuko remaining the MC.
For all we know this is something that regularly happens within the KLK-verse.
Maybe schools fight like this all the time.
>His father's company rule the city and it's economy.
>Shop-owners taking arms to get more money and thus getting a better place inside a money ruled society.
>Since the city use it's own currency, the shop-owner who are knee-deep in Takarada shit are pretty much forced to defend it if they want to prevent any kind of economic crisis.
I fail to see how this "choice" is better than Honnouji's forced recruitment of one star students. They also had the choice of staying no-stars, but it would mean living in the slums.
Everyone had their "choice" son, and both were fucked up.
>/a/: Macroeconomics & Political Philosophy
Power via Goku uniforms is superior to Takarada Bux. Jew-kun is based because he jobbed Sanageyamcha. Satsuki-sama crush Mr. Krabs and shit will happen with Ryuuko and Senketsu.
If you're a no star, you can be and will be brutalized by the higher classes. Mako was going to be executed for the crime of talking to Ryuuko in episode one.
Satsuki's much, much worse than Takarada. Takarada is greedy, but he doesn't brutalize his own populace.
>Everyone had their "choice" son, and both were fucked up.
This. We should all follow Ryuuko's anarchy.
Let's hope he become a recurring character.
That's what we said about Trap-chan and Sharktooth-chan too.
i miss tennis girl
I'd like Satsuki to brutalize me.
Then explain why anyone would ever sign up for Honnouji Academy when all this time they could've made the American dream in Osaka?
Golden Mean Fallacy is for fucking pussies. And Ryuuko is a stupid little shit who can't even do basic paperwork, a society run by her would collapse in a day
Not just executed. She was about to be boiled to death in cooking oil. She would have melted into sludge.
Tennis club wasn't even in the attacking sport clubs. ;_;
They were presented and finished off in the same chapter, Enfield's still fighting.
She was going to get deep fried you tit.
Do french fries melt into sludge?
Human flesh is a little different from french fries
>Potatoes and Human skin will behave exactly the same while being cooked
Have you never fried meat in oil?
You retards are just now getting that this anime is anti-capitalism, anti-nationalism, and anti-authoritarianism? Jesus fucking Christ, how autistic can you get?
Next thing you know you'll be saying that the skimpy outfits are nothing more straight-up fan-service.
Have you never seen cooking oil thrown in someone's face?
Surprisingly enough, meat, chicken skins and other stuff do not melt when dropped into hot oil, and human parts are no different.
None of the Two-Stars were even present on the Raid Trip. What the fuck were they doing? Were they back at Honnouji?
Satsuki demoted them to No-stars.
Someone has to hold down the fort.
Besides, their numbers were probably greatly reduced after Ryuuko's fight club rampage, and have yet to recover.
You do realise the mechanism is a bit different because of temperature and exposition time, right?
Ryuuko was a school delinquent and most likely a bully in the past.
Her ideal would probably be a literal dog-eat-dog warlordism.
>brutalized by higher class
Wich only happen when they don't respect the simplest rules.
Mako's case was just a way to get their hands on Ryuuko. Actually, most of the abusive behavior from Honnouji was done as a way to try to get rid of Ryuuko and/or test her.
Wich isn't that suprising since we are talking about the girl who entered the school with the sole intention of picking a fight with the seitokaichou and declare war on the WHOLE FUCKING SCHOOL a few days after that.
So yeah, Satsuki only use force when her ennemies are involved, wich is quite normal.
And again, we know nothing about Takarada. He might have been brutalizing people too, wich would be quite easy with his wealth.
I'd like to...
Its not that. It probably has to do with new clothing priority, with the upgraded 3 stars taking the highest priority.
He's got his own theme, that's a good sign.
Except you saw it clearly that Mako was going to get nicely covered in batter and then deep fried.
Besides, boiling oil thrown in someone's face doesn't melt the face, just causes "wet" burns, more or less severe. Basically, it boils or fries the skin, up to a certain depth depending on temperature and how long it staid on the skin.
Dropping a freshly battered Mako into a tub of boiling oil would fry her nicely into a crisp fried Mako.
>Which only happen when they don't respect the simplest rules
Yeah, if you miss Tennis Practice you're executed. That's totally cool.
>the show's still going to nowhere
Okay I'm done with this shit.
Problem is that Manhanshoku, despite being an underachiever, is still a student of Honnouji Academy. At least in the early episodes it looked like they really don't give a shit about their students. This tone changed later on but still.
>All these people defending Takarade's Osaka like it's a bastion of socio-economic freedom
This isn't a fucking democracy, it's a weathly merchantile city ruled by an oligarch, who happens to have a different set of tools at his disposal to keep the population in line.
Also, considering that Osaka's a center for Yakuza activity, it's pretty safe to say that anybody who opposes Takarade in normal circumstances would "disappear" or "have an accident".
Not defending Satsuki's brutal meritocracy, but this is a conflict between an idealistic tyrant and a more pragmatic one.
Probably. It's not like were needed to conquer the schools anyway. They'd be complete overkill.
Either way, I just want to see Shark-chan again.
She was a delinquent, but she's also a good person.
She was the only one who didn't get lost in the fame and stature of being the best club.
Omiko Hakodate. Gotta love the shark teeth. Too bad she never showed up again. Not even as a no star...
I don't think Ryouuko aspires to lead anything, that's not her modus operandi at all.
Shark-chan is too busy in the 0 star ghettos taking it in the ass for a meager living
Satsuki's mother looks like Cytomander.
Ryuuko aspires to be Kenshiro
Try reading my post again.
When did Kenshiro even lead anyone?
That's not nice at all, but I guess it was bound to happen.
She'd probably like it in the ass too, the slut.
>implying you don't want to see a meek No-Star Hakodate cross paths with Ryuuko again
>not cumming in her eye-socket
0/10 wouldn't fap
so that whole no-pan thing is canon after all.
You're speculating that he oppresses his people, when there's literally nothing to indicate that. He allows his people to fight for him or not, Satsuki forces hers.
And him being pragmatic is a strength. Satsuki will always be nothing more than a hypocrite.
I want to see Ryuuko meet everyone she crushed before in some sort of slum-environment once she's fallen deep enough. It would be like The Sorrow in Metal Gear
>This is where you have taken us
>Is revenge really so sweet?
>Was it worth it?
>I hope it was
>How does it feel being a hero?
Now look who is taking balls to the face.
HOLD THE FUCKING PHONE
that backround in the preview of episode 15
its the same as this one.
beserk ryuuko killing money jew maybe?
>implying blowjobs aren't her specialty
No, more like Senketsu reborn.
Of course it is, who wouldn't love that cap bumping against your stomach as she's blowing you.
>you blowjob with the teeth
doing it wrong
>Satsuki is Ayn Rand.
This is why /a/ is one of the worst boards.
>Satsuki and Uzu easily defeat Crab, seems like Satsuki's conquest is finished
>BAM, Nudist Beach surrounds both Nonon and Gamagori's forces
>Ryuuko rushes at Satsuki for a surprise attack
>the upgraded 3-Star uniforms debut, easily turn the tides against Nudist Beach
>Uzu stops Ryuuko before she is able to hit Satsuki
>Sensei arrives to the rescue and throws NAKED WRESTLING MUD all over Uzu
>Ryuuko is free to go against Satsuki, but Satsuki henshins
>Ryuuko fights bravely but is completely outmatched, she lands a hit on Satsuki
>Satsuki, impressed, offers Ryuuko an alliance, the glove in exchange for her help
>Ryuuko tells her go go fuck herself; Satsuki decides to finish Ryuuko off
And then either:
>Inumuta's betrayal begins, all the upgraded 3-Star uniforms suffer malfunction
>Nui attacks Satsuki from behind, Satsuki's blood makes Junketsu go berserk
>Ryuuko is forced to save Satsuki
>Ryuuko takes Satsuki's finishin strike, which pierces her with the sword; Ryuuko holds the sword tightly and drags Satsuki to her, slashes off her arm
>Satsuki starts punching Ryuuko, mad as hell; Ryuuko is on her last breath when Senketsu tells her to "Synchronize"
>instead of Ryuuko's blood going to Senketsu, Senketsu's Life Fiber go into Ryuuko
>Ryuuko defeats Satsuki, but Senketsu is gone. The other Devas are forced to retreat by her defeat.
Can't really see any different scenario.
That's what the drama CD is about.
I can see Mako meeting no-star Hakodate in the slums and randomly dragging her home much to Ryuuko 's annoyance.
Satsuki offers Ryuuko tea, they discuss their differences peacefully.
Ryuuko prefers coffee.
>seems like they're going to make-up and team-up
>Ryuuko insults Satsuki's tea
>"IT'S FUCKING ON"
see you next week
wow, I didn't think Ryuko could get any worse.
She'll probably just become incredibly strong and beat everyone's shit.
Judging by Tsumugu's fight with Ryuuko and Nui, Nudists can be capable of handling 3stars.
Or at least capable of incapacitating them by rubbing nipples on their faces.
>DON'T USE AU LAIT.
>It would be like The Sorrow in Metal Gear
That would be a great beach episode, the lower part of the city is right by the water.
>Satsuki and Monkey begin to fight Mr Krabs
>Ryuuko jumps in and fights Satsuki
>Mr Krabs fucks up Monkey and covers him in shit
>Other schools regroup and push back all of Satsuki's forces
>Senketsu dies, the Life Fiber attaches itself to Ryuuko instead of Senketsu
Nui should take Hakodate's normal eye to replace the one she lost.
It'd only be a breach episode if one of the demoted girls gets her feet cast into concrete by the mafia for not paying her debts on time and then gets dumped into the ocean.
They were able to fight the old 3 Stars; the upgrades were specifically created to fight with Nudist Beach.
Satsuki would rather let her Devas get raped by Mr Krabs than put anything in her tea.
I really want to see monkey get his guts stomped out. He really is worst deva.
life fiber slipper, heavier than concrete.
>this is how Nui was made
>not wanting that tongue wrapping around your dick like a wet towel
He's the potentially coolest, but it's all wasted on being a gauge for how strong people in the series are.
Who knows, maybe there are some Nudist Beach Fabulous Naked Officers capable of taking them on with fair ease.
Isn't Osaka basically just Detroit? How would you feel if your leader sent you to kill a billion japanese niggers? The other devas had it easy compared to Monkey.
Nui is going to mindbreak Satsuki, but not by attacking her.
Osaka is Japan's Houston.
>You're speculating that he oppresses his people, when there's literally nothing to indicate that.
If you knew anything about merchant republics, you'd know that's exactly how the place is run, what indicates that it's run any other way? Because he used bribery to form a militia?
> Satsuki forces hers
Not entirely, although those in the supporting and logistical roles are often presed into service, the soldiers actually fighting are idealogicly commited to serving the goals of their master.
So are there any doujinshi of her sucking dicks yet?
post-Katrina? that's horrible
>Do you want to know what he pulled out of me?
Really? Has the drama CD already been released?
They just want nicer living quarters and food and to avoid punishment. The only person who follows Satsuki for ideological reasons is Gamagoori
17 years ago.
>Osakans calling others hicks
Still best character. So refreshing to see someone else standing up against Satsuki.
Then why were they so set on purging Mako for fucking around? Why don't more desert? Why didn't Monkeys forces turn on him when such a large reward was offered for his head while they were losing? Even if they didn't support things at first you can be sure they are brainwashed soldiers now.
Osaka doesn't have enough parking lots to be Houston.
Uzu follows because he wants to fight strong people.
Nonon wants to fuck Satsuki.
Inu wants to betray her.
Osaka is industrial and trade isn't it? Even if it has a funny accent that sounds like something I can get behind.
Jesus christ why didn't they just build one or two multi-level parking garages
A preview: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x19ham0
The first one is the most likely. The second option would turn Ryuuko into a bitch, and the Devas into villains, which they aren't.
And we need to fucking see Nudist Beach in action. Sensei said he's done with reconnaissance, and has assumed his true form as a SPLENDID NAKED OFFICER, so I assume he's driving his naked ass to NB HQ to plan a counterattack.
are they afraid of heights?
They're both normal, you moron. The other one's just as scope.
How would the second turn Ryuuko into a bitch if Satsuki stabs her first? Or the Devas into villains, they would just be doing their job and retreating when their leader goes down.
Ryuuko starts feeling bad for them but Omiko tells Ryuuko that it was a fair fight and that it was their choice. Why is Omiko so perfect?
Yup, Kansai in general is industrial and trade.
Osaka is grey and grim as fuck though, wouldn't want to live there.
You don't say. That is why being rich doesn't necessary make you will be happy. A simple life is the best.
Thanks. Of course. I can only recognize voices and Hakodate 's name. Hope it gets translated.
Because it cements them both as antagonists because a team-up is now impossible. We've spent too much time with the Devas as people to keep them as villains.
I heard the people are nicer and mroe down-to-earth than in Tokyo. And grey is beautiful, thank you.
But they won't team up any time soon; Ryuuko needs to go to Nudist Beach so she can get the full story on Kinue and her father.
Besides this way Ryuuko won't ever kiss Satsuki...
>Ryuuko and Satsuki
>teaming up any time soon
Not happening; the end result is just going to be Ryuuko going to Nudist Beach HQ regardless of if Satsuki gets betrayed or not. There are many blanks on their side Ryuuko needs to discover.
Thursday cannot come fast enough.
Kinue is Nui, she was devoured by the kamui and it fused with her body. She's basically a life fiber/human hybrid now. That's why she wants to get other people consumed by their kamuis. Being the only of her kind makes her lonely.
>opinions and baseless speculation
Nah, Kinue is Ryuuko's mom. They look similar on purpose.
Nah, they're pricks in Osaka, too. Kyoto and Kobe are much nicer.
Ryuuko and Satsuki teaming up this early would be anti-climatic. They need to hate each other first and THEN need to get over their hatred before teaming up for the final, final arc.
Who's Tsumugu then?
GREATEST LOVE STORY EVER TOLD
He could be her onii-chan.
Being a sexual tyrannosaurus is hard.
ages would be weird, uncle works better
What reason do they have to hate each other?
Satsuki stabbing Ryuuko and causing Senketsu to die for real, Ryuuko cutting Satsuki's arm off.
You don't know how old he is at all. He could be Gama's age.
Nothing that won't seem stupid and forced.
Ryuuko doesn't even care about Satsuki anymore, aside from the glove. The only thing that gets Ryuuko's pussy wet with fear and rage is Nui.
If Ryuuko stops being useful to her, you really think Satsuki won't just kill or try to kill her? You think that isn't enough reason for Ryuuko to hate her?
Right now, yes. But if Satsuki causes Senketsu to die for real; what reason would Ryuuko have to not hate her?
She's her sister.
How was Ryuuko useful for Satsuki after she got beaten by Nui and got Senketsu torn apart?
She hoped Ryuuko would recover, follow her to Osaka and join her.
She was ready to let Ryuuko die in episodes 3 and 6.
And Satsuki wants to beat Raygo, who is Nui's boss. They have the same goals.
>"Hey, Ryuuko. I'll give you back your glove if you help me beat my mom."
>"Why the hell would I do that, Kiryuuin?"
>"Because she's Nui's, boss, and sent her to Honnouji where she almost killed you. Twice. Oh, and she knows what happened to Isshin."
>Satsuki was ready to let Sanageyama murder Ryuuko in episode 6
>SHE CARES FOR RYUUKO I SWEAR
Why are Satsukifags so deluded?
Because she was disappointing.
that must be why they're not attracted to each other with all of the other gayness that's floating around
Why would Ryuuko accept that after Satsuki admitted to lying in episode 12?
>She was ready to let Ryuuko die in episodes 3 and 6.
because she hadn't proved her resolve yet.
She was weak back then. Satsuki didn't start giving a fuck about her until she beat her system in episode 7.
She's just tsundere.
So Satsuki would admit that she lied to Ryuuko in episode 12? Why would Ryuuko trust her after that?
>tfw you'll never have a nice, slim body like sensei
Because she didn't want a weakened Ryuuko going on a suicide mission after Nui?
So then she wants Ryuuko to join her? And why would Ryuuko do that? Ryuuko would spit in Satsuki's face if Satsuki offered her an spot as her minion. She has no reason to trust Satsuki after Satsuki textually told her "I send Nui to kill your dad". If Satsuki tells Ryuuko "I was lying, my mom did" why would Ryuuko trust her?
>"I-It's not like I admire your resolve or anything... B-baka!"
What I mean is why would Ryuuko trust a self-declared liar? "The fuck would I trust someone like you?" would be Ryuuko's only answer.
I just want some delicious Nui x Ryuuko action is that too much to ask?
The question is: WHY RYUUKO HERSELF TRUST SATSUKI IF SATSUKI BECAME A SELF-DECLARED LIAR?
At this point in time I don't think Satsuki wants Ryuuko to join her at all. She simply does not go out of her way to fuck people over if it's not necessary.
There's no reason to kill Ryuuko unless she becomes an obstacle that's more than a chaotic gust of wind.
