Most people will be watching the show for the crazy action and the bold fan service, and it rewards those who want to kill more of their brain cells. In terms of style KLK is a fine specimen, using a retro look and lots of stuff moving around with jerky but otherwise fast movements. It keeps your eyes constantly wide open, and your willies constantly hard and facing up, and I guess that is more than enough to keep a big portion of the audience entertained.
Other than that though, it is pretty passable. You can yell all you want about KLK being from the same creators as Furi Kuri, Tengen Toppa, and Panty & Stocking, so it has to automatically be as good. You will be like voices in the desert, since this is by far the worse title amongst them. It has the same amount of over the top craziness and fan service but lacks a soul. Where the others had a theme of breaking taboos and recreating the world, KLK is just a hollow revenge story about some half-naked girl. As if we don’t have enough Cutey Honey, Ikki Tousen, Queen’s Blade, Freezing, or any other similar show for all that, including live-action movies such as Kill Bill or Sucker Punch.
Not even the main conflict is griping so you can at least be interested to see how the heroine will cope with that. Where the other Imaishi anime had a main villain who could destroy the planet anytime he felt like it, KLK is just some school president girl who ... doesn’t do anything, really. Matoi can pretty much level any opponent past the Big Bad since episode 1; completely ruining the excitement of what comes next in a similar way Star Driver failed to be interesting after a couple of episodes. As for the plot... well, no reason to go into details regarding its non-existence and complete lack of common sense. It’s fairly episodic and even feels like the main villain is not destroying the heroine right just so to stretch the series to 2 cour.
So, really, there isn’t much to write (or think) about this show. You watch it for the spectacle and keep your brains shut down. As for the hype surrounding it, well, let’s see it this way. Remember the most awesome best anime of all times a little while back? It was called Attack on Titan, which replaced the most awesome best anime of all times that was Sword Art Online, which replaced the most awesome best anime of all times that was Madoka Magica, and so on until we go all the way back to Astro Boy. Kill La Kill (KLK) is the latest hype overdose title to get that praise only to be inevitably replaced soon by Space Dandy. It’s all about the hype and a lot less about the actual quality of these shows; so whatever you may be hearing about them amounts simply to how much you like to ride the same bandwagon. As soon as the novelty is gone, KLK will go meet the med-to-low tier shows, regardless of the sales it may have.
>some loser typed this all out
I wanna watch both Tengen Toppa and Panty & Stocking, but I don't know which one I should watch first.
Mmyeah, whatever. In any case it's still the most interesting show this and previous season, even if it might not be the "best" one.
I know they're both so similar.
Both are action comedy but both have more of one then the other.
PSG is more comedy then action
TTGL is more action then comedy
Whichever is the one that sounds most appealing to you should be be the one to start with.
P&S has best girl
Epic blog bro! where do I subscribe?
>"There isn't much to write about this show"
>Proceeds to write a great deal about the show
What a redundant retard.
>completely ruining the excitement of what comes next
KLK is ok. Don't blame the creators for trying something different or focusing on an anime that sells rather than one that statisfies your very high aesthetic standards
Kill la Kill is fun, that's what it tries to be and succeeds at. On many levels.
>there are actually people that think KLK is edgy
>people actually write things like this when the show is only just halfway over
Loving this blog, say OP, do you have a site of your own where you blog about other dislikes of yours or are you gonna get a trip so i can follow you around on /a/?
I was sure that instead of collecting Senketsu's cut up pieces, the big reveal would be that the portion she kept has his core life fiber and all the other fibres making up the uniform were just to restrain Senketsu's power and now she would finally take on her final form where her uniform would be a literal string running over her nipples and crotch as a sling bikini leaving her fully exposed thereby "bringing a balance to the force" between nudists and clothiers. Did anyone else think that?
