So why does Trigger like Mako so much?

They gave her episode the most budget, they give her the most plot armor, and they've made it so no one else is allowed to be Ryuuko's close friend.

And apparently the new ED will be Ryuuko and Mako centric

Has Trigger written a mary sue?
>>
>>100542038
Yes, that's exactly what they did.

Let's face it Mako should have died a very long time ago. I have no idea how she is in High School.
>>
>>100542038
>Has Trigger written a mary sue?

Not really she has her faults, like being retarded and greedy
>>
They also like to hype up how funny she is when she does nothing for me. Maybe it's because of all the attention they give her.

because she's likeable
i understand your lack of understanding though. it's not like i expect people on /a/ to have friends in real life with temper similar to her, but let me tell you, people like her are great friends in real life.
>>
Because Mako is clearly a best, and Trigger has great taste.
>>
Mako is kind of boring.
>>
>>100542711
But they did. There was an entire episode about that. And the show isn't over yet, so you can't just say "Yeah, but that was just one episode and everything was resolved at the end anyway," especially considering that the last episode showed she hasn't completely gotten past her avarice.
>>
>>100543263
Mako has never got her ass beat

Not once. In her fight against Ryuuko she didn't even get punched in the face for being a traitorous whore
>>
I have no doubt at all that Trigger will make an OVA just for Mako after the initial KLK run ended.
>>
>>100542038
The real quetion is why you don't like her as much as they do.

They believe she's that wacky fun character everyone loves that most good anime projects have.
But since their writers are even more incompetent than their animators...

It's a comic relief character. Her shenanigans are just there to be funny and entertaining. Don't look too deeply into it. She's there to support Ryuuko and to be a fun and likeable character.

I don't think it's justified to call Mako a mary sue because she's kind of a non character. She could just as easily have been Senketsu in terms of how she interacts with Ryuoko.

Oh, no, Satsuki is the boring JRPG rival character that you get two thirds of the way through and whose stats fucking suck compared to when she was a villain.

Takarada is the dude with the crazy mechanics and cool sounding lines.

>>100546357
But there is nobody in KLK more interesting than Ryuuko other than Tsumugu and Aikurou; all the Four Kings are gigantic manchildren with shitty motivations, Satsuki doesn't feel human or well-rounded and Mako is a comedic relief. At least you can feel that there is a sense of moral ambiguity and real struggle with Tsumugu and Nudist Sensei and that there is great tragedy in their backstories.

Stfu. She is epic & random & wacky. If You dont like comedy anime dont watch Kill La Kill.
>>
>Satsuki has ambition
What is her ambition? Change the world through force? But in what way is the world shitty? How is Satsuki's system justified? Satsuki is ambitious for the sake of being ambitious; she is selfish and egocentric. It's hard for her to be interesting when there is little to no struggle on her side of the story and she is ultimately little more than a girl that got served the world in a silver platter. At least Ryuuko can grow-up as her name implies; Satsuki feels like a dead-end character.

KLK should just make Ryuuko go to Nudist Beach already; they're the most interesting part of the story right now.
>>
>>100546694
Much like most JRPG villains, Satsuki isn't destroying the world... she's saving it!

But the issue is that her plan and actions are not only contradictory, they're also very stupid.

It seems like Satsuki has a plan, and then a hidden-plan, and then a subconscious-plan.

Her stated plan is to conquer Japan and militarize the high schools for Revocs.

Her "hidden" plan is to conquer Japan and militarize the high schools to beat the shit out of Revocs.

Her subconscious plan is for Ryuuko to grind her face into the dirt and insult her.

She's Senator Armstrong from MGR, but a much weaker willed person.

Armstrong didn't want to be proven wrong or lose, Satsuki very clearly does.

Satsuki is a Mary Sue. Mako is full of character flaws and is almost retarded. Her episode even showed how greedy she is. Even the new EP showed her greed.
