Do people actually like the direction Kill la Kill is going?

Not trying to be edgy here, but seriously, this show has basically just been meandering around after the 3rd episode when nothing happens anymore and you get used to all the RADICAL shit happening in KlK such as cartoon nudity and SAKUGA.


The only good thing that has come out of Kill la Kill after the climax of the prologue arc is Blumenkranz, seriously.

The Elite Four stuff was probably the dullest story arc ever, none of these characters actually seem fucking human but Gundam Wing style cardboard cutouts someone phoned in from TvTropes.
I just don't freaking care
None of these characters are possible to care about!

Inferno cop was better characterized for christ's sake.

But maybe it was all intentional and Imaishi will save anime in the second cour.
The way it is now, hell fucking no.

The last episode was really, REALLY fucking disappointing.
And the one before that wasn't really all that great either.
Fuck Nui in general actually, she's a boring villains and a shitty character and dragged the story down a lot.

Man, now you made me sad OP. What was the last great KLK episode actually? I think after Ryoko fought Satsuki and then they decided to postpone that fight till whenever it never really picked up again.

Caring about the termination of the character is a matter of writing and narrative design, not whether I like a character subjectively or not.
It can add to it, but it's not the original reason.

Stories of fiction that do this are considered shallow.

>>100614806
>Do people actually like the direction Kill la Kill is going?

Generally it's fine. It has some pacing issues here and there tho.

The only thing i really disliked, plot-wise, has been the ending of the tournament arc. I expected it to be a turning point in the story.
Maybe, even with death(s). Dunno.

But "Ryuko goes berserk for 20 mins - Mako stop her with friendship - Nui walks away - END" was just disappointing.
Then the ep after Senketsu gets sliced in tiny pieces by Nui? Why.

Just doesn't feel right pacing wise, to end a climax arc with "nothing happens" and the ep after "ops i lied. No calm after the storm. Plot tweeeeeest!".

Kill la Kill is a gateway anime of the worst kind. It's a bad series, a clusterfuck of story and characterization that isn't very well done by any aspect, but which attempts to compensate for its weaknesses by adding in excessive badly animated boobs and DARKNESS. The normal anon can see this as the shit it is, and may enjoy it, hate it or be indifferent to it, but all the while recognizing that the series itself, regardless of their opinion, is plain bad.

However, these very aspects that try to smear over the shit of its core make it a breeding ground for aspie, unsociable man babbys who engage in every kind of faggotry both online and in the real world. The superpowered characters all trying their hardest to look cool, the, peculiar, colorful gokus, the whole edgy faggotry and everything about the Kill la Kill world fuels their escapist fantasies, while the pity-party character backgrounds, emphasis on revenge, and overall shityness of the series make it fit just right with the mary-sueish drives of your average young adult and his sense of unwarranted self-importance towards the world. Exactly the kind of shit that makes man babby retards eat this shit right the fuck up.

Kill la Kill is basically THE series to attract the most hated anime fanbase known to /a/, which is why, regardless of individual opinions, it is the responsibility of every anon to troll the fuck out of this show and everyone who likes it, and ensure that no Kill la Kill threads ever encourage the newfriends to show their faces here.

Not trying to be edgy here, but seriously, this show has basically just been meandering around after the Golden Age arc when nothing happens anymore and you get used to all the RADICAL shit happening in Berserk such as nudity and rape.


The only good thing that has come out of Berserk after the climax of the prologue arc is that drawing of Guts pouting, seriously.

You could have just tolled up "I love cocks" and saved yourself some time OP.
>>
Yes I like it. What should it be doing?
>>
No, OP is right, no one in this series is likable enough to feel empathy towards. Ryuko lost her dad but she doesn't seem sad over it, just revenge hungry. If she doesn't care, why should we? Mako is invincible, annoying, and always ADHDamn happy so why concern over her? The family is a joke, the elite 4 are fickle, and Satsuki is the typical "I'm bad but I care about you MC so we'll team up against the REAL bad guy later" character. None of them are worth giving a second thought and the only "good" character is Nui because while she's not empathy worthy, she actually adds something unexpected to the show. I'd be mad if Nui died because that would mean the show would stop progressing.
>>
>>100614806
I kinda agree with you, but there is only one answer: Budget.

With better animation all the weakness would have been less noticiable and the style would have compensated it. In fact, many of the weakness of the show come from scrip desitions obviously based on budget limitations.

Is not Trigger's fault that they are poor, so I will support them and try to ignore the flaws. If the hyped episode 15 sucks and they dont get studio Kahra for the second half then... well supporting the show is going to be even harder.

But I want Trigger to do well and get the money, they can do great things. You cant expect them to save anime with their first show ever and done with no budget. With that in mind is actually a decent show, but yeah the first 3 episodes are the real deal and what the show should have been.
>>
>edgy
But yeah the show really tapered off. The pacing got weird once we hit the Student Election and 4Devas arc. The side characters from the other schools are infinitely more entertaining than Satsuki's "im gonna beat my mom at her own empire game" bullshit. Ryuuko's singular goal is to kill Nui but now Ryuuko has to go through some DBZ training arc of picking up Senketsu's bits and repairing him.

In all honesty Mako is probably the only consistent main character of the show. Episodes 15 and 16 better be fuckin' magical.

It's like you didn't even watch the show.
>>
I agree. Episode 3 was a real highlight for me because it showed Trigger was willing to break the mold and go straight for a Satsuki vs. Ryuuko confrontation in the very first arc of the story with both of them being evenly matched. And then it turned out it was just a big fucking bait and switch at the end of the episode.

Ryuuko doesn't even blush anymore either. God what a let down. The only reason I am watching it now is because the past 2 episodes actually had stuff happening and Takarada might actually be important.
>>
>>100614806
No, you're exactly right about why too. I stopped watching after the break between cours.

I don't see the point of the Elite 4 battles, They tried to beat her and failed but still serve Satsuki as generals taking over the schools? It seems kind of pointless but when Nui got introduced it all became so much better.

The characters exists as visual gags only, all conflicts are resolved by random fiat rather than in-story rules, and its glacially paced and stupid as hell. It's stuck somewhere between comedy and shonen, and it flipflops awkwardly between those roles. It doesn't have the budget for real action, and it doesn't have characters worth caring about to support comedy or drama.
>>
>>100619314
Satsuki knew they didn't stand a chance against a Kamui.
Everything was set up to acquire data on Life Fibers and upgrade the uniforms; btw Inumuta knew this.

I too think that this show has indulged itself a bit too much on self-contained episodes (although they where still fun and had brilliant ideas in them), but from the next episode we'll be getting the serious plot, or so they said.
So there's no reason to complain about all this right now.

But this is not bad per se! Panty and Stockings did that and it worked perfectly. This show tried to do something like that with the Gurrenlaganish elements, and in the first 3 episodes works perfectly.

Then budget leaves and never comes back.

Thats all there is to analyze. Maybe they can redeem themselves on this hyped episode 15 and second half. I really relly hope that happens.

But it had! They were gathering the Heaven coins, the search for the hell monkey, the backstory of the priest and dont forget the climax of the last two episodes.

Do you even watch it? They managed to transpire a bigger plot while keeping the gags and all that. Kill la Kill was obviously going for the same thing, and they managed to do it in the first 3 episodes. Then they ran out of budget.

I really dont understand why you disagree with this.
>>
>>100622394
I wish he'd feature more, hes in the background to often
>>
I'm positive about it, I think they are saving -a lot of- budget for the final episodes. I will wait until the next episode or maybe 16 to see if something happens, but overall it has been pretty boring.
>>
I don't hate the series, but I like how OP put what I couldn't quite decide what was wrong:
>this show has basically just been meandering around after the 3rd episode
This should've been a 13 episode series. No big plot points have happened, except the introduction of characters like NB guy and Nui+dad backstory, which could have happened in episodes 4 and 5. The battle with the elite 4 could've happened during episode 6-7 so we see their powers and personalities. And whatever else needs to be covered like Revocs/true Senketsu and Junketsu/Nudist Beach/revenge on Nui and Ragyo the rest of the episodes. I don't even remember what else happened except stupid shenanigans, Senketsu getting cut up then reclaimed during some stupid schools battle is pretty much more original filler.
>>
Nui really should have sliced Senketsu in episode 12. That's my only complaint. Then they could've spent 13 on the Battlefield Trip and 14 on Ryuko getting the pieces of Senketsu back
>>
I'm enjoying it but but the pacing reminds me of Eureka Seven.
>>
They don't want you to care about most of the characters. They barely want you to care about Ryuuko.

It's the plot in general. Kiryuuin's plot. Ryuuko is just a part of the whole thing, with the main focus being on psuedo-philosophy.

Fashion = Fasshon
Fascism = Fassho

Kill/Cut = Kiru
To Wear Clothing = Kiru

Sailor Uniform = Seifuku
Conquest = Seifuku

On top of that psuedo-philosophy, there's plenty of action, gags, and drama. Not necessarily fantastic in any way, but Kill la Kill is heading the direction anime should be. It's laying groundwork. This is how KlK will save anime.
>>
>>100624441
Not to mention the drinking blood = Menstruation analogy.
>>
>>100624768
And the whole taking of virginity when they first combine with their kamui
>>
>>100624768
>>100624877

I can agree with OP to a point. When I saw the first episode I was like "Oh fuck this will be an emotional roller coaster just like gurren lagann." And that's where I was wrong, this isn't GL, but I still enjoy watching it for the most part.
>>
Why are you faggot looking so deep into a comedy series?
>>
>>100626425
>calling it a comedy series
Just because it has plenty of comedy doesn't mean it is a comedy. Unless you're going by the Shakespearen Dichotomy of Comedy/Tragedy
>>
>>100626425
We are not looking deeply, is right there at the surface.

Also because is fun, I dont get why some anons get angry when other anons over-analize things. Why it bothers them?
>>
It is pretty flawed but I enjoy it.
Hopefully Trigger can generally improve as a studio with the years.

The only thing that bothers me a lot is Ryuko's character.
I cannot stop comparing her to the characters she draws from and she is so bland and underdeveloped in comparison. Then again, the show is far from ever.
