So Nudist Beach were written out of the story after hyping their appearance for so long but before they were properly introduced. Is Ichiro Okouchi writing KlK now?
Who the fuck knows.
BUT THAT FUCKING FACE PUNCH
OWNED HARDER THAN A WHITE PLANTATION OWNER OWNING A BLACK MAN
OWNED HARDER THAN HANK HILL OWNING PROPANE
VVV was coherent compared to KLK
They're backed by Takarada.
What do you mean written out?
They still exist and the members are still alive, they just lost their mechs, which can be replaced.
Yet another ep that showed nothing but "muh imroved strength!"
I wish they dragged it out for a little longer.
And a huge portion of the people involved with it
>implying background characters matter
Any opportunity to see Satsuki and to get to be with her in some way is good for me.
They lost pretty much everything. They're gone, they're not coming back.
Except Takarada is funding them. They'll be rebuild in a day-
I seriously hope Takarada sticks around for the rest of the show, or at least for an episode or two.
Ryuko's motivations don't really make sense to me. She seems to move from muh dad to muh friendship to actually giving a shit about what Satsuki without much behind it. That's fine I guess, but are we supposed to cheer for her? I get people don't like Satsuki's keikaku doori demeanor, but I sure don't want Ryuko's halfassed actions to defeat Satsuki's solid resolve and planning she's worked her whole live for due to muh friendship.
So I'm stuck wanting wanting Satsuki lose something in order to progress the story, but I don't want Ryuko to do it. And we all know what happened when Ryuko lost something to progress the story, it was essentially nothing.
Ryuuko basically has no reason to even be there. I have no idea why she kept fighting with Satsuki in this episode after she got the glove.
>Episode 15 this
>Episode 15 that
blah blah, another average episode with nothing happening and predictable outcomes. Seriously, not saying it's bad. But it's not above average either. Really need to stop forcing this to be something more than what it actually is guys.
If you have NO IDEA after today's episode, then maybe this show is just too deep for you.
>Takarada gives a shit ton of money to Nudist Beach to develop the mechas etc.
>Satsuki's forces come back to Osaka, instantly get wrecked
>Dotonbori Robo MK II shoves a crab claw up Sanageyama's ass
Why does everyone like this swaggot again?
WHERE IS THE EXTENDED EPISODE 16 PREVIEW???
I NEED THIS MORE THAN I NEED TO GET LAID.
I am sure that the main members of nudist beach is hiding around in another base somewhere else that satsuki has no knowledge about.
Oh, I know what she was thinking considering she fucking says it, I'm just calling it meaningless and shallow.
It's one of my favorite episodes, you're likely just another random troll.
Oh and it hit me when the elite 4 transformed, they look like the fantastic 4.
I don't know how I didn't realize it before.
I wish they animated it, it was the only thing worth animating this episode.
C-calm down, Professor!
I'm assuming he does. Nudist Beach were ordered to rescue him, after all.
>written out of the story
Their headquarters was destroyed and most of their ranks defeated, but they aren't "gone". I mean, fucking Aikurou and Tsumugu were with them at the ending.
>hyping their apperance for so long
The most they did was imply they were going to make a big show. And they did. They were just defeated by a massively stronger force of the combined strength of all four of the devas with superior versions of their already immensely powerful 3-star uniforms.
The series isn't over yet, this was simply the marking of the next series of events. Similar to how after the Naturals Election tournament, we were drawn directly to the Battlefield Trip episodes.
Takarada was caught though.
Funny how the most interesting cuts in this episode were CGI. They were well-done this time around.
I think being concerned about entire cities being wiped out can't exactly be dismissed as meaningless. She has very real reason to stand up against Satsuki. And like she said, she hasn't forgotten about revenge either.
What a piece of shit show. Cant wait till the garbage is over to never hear about it of its fanbase again.
Because they were used on fast paced scenes with no face shots
CG looks the worst in slow scenes and faces
No him but I can see where he's coming from. What bugs me the most about this series is the fact that it's all about action but it has little to no actual animation you would expect in a action series such as this
The cheapness is killing it for me. People like yourself just can't admit it's flaws, which is kind of sad. It's not the TTGL or FLCL succors you guys wanted. Simple as that. I'm glad the success and sales show that.
They've been saving budget until the second half of the season. Only better from here on in
So why was she fighting Satsuki?
She doesn't really care about Nudist Beach.
She has no beef with Satsuki because she didn't kill her dad.
She doesn't really have any opposing ideals or morals.
Just why? You got Senketsu back. You can fuck off away now.
Go troll another thread shitposter
We don't know if they rescued him or not. Monkey just kinda casually jogged off-screen with him then the nudebots attacked and he wasn't seen for the rest of the episode.
What a shit episode.
No seriously, someone on here must know where I can find the extended preview.
At first it was to get the glove back.
And then it was because she doesn't like her and shit had already started.
>he isn't a sheep like us
>he must be a troll
100% confirmed troll, this is the last reply you deserve.
>So why was she fighting Satsuki?
At the most base levels here, Satsuki took the destroyed Senketsu and distributed it amongst her ranks in a very callous and uncaring way. Ryuuko went down to go get the pieces back. That is a huge slap to the face for Ryuuko, because Senketsu is the closest thing to her, and stealing him and placing him all over a battlefield is a massively insulting gesture.
Then she wanted to just fuck Satsuki up, because it was stated, ever since episode goddamn 3, that she has always had a beef with Satsuki and her lofty ambitions. Here was the living proof of it. Osaka destroyed, nothing but burning ruins in what was once an essential city of gold. Ryuuko wouldn't be privy to allow this shit to keep on going when she could continue to resist Satsuki.
Nudist Beach made it an objective to rescue him in the head of battle just like Ryuuko. Even if Satsuki managed to take him prisoner, they're bound to stage a rescue mission.
It gives them an excuse to go back to the academy anyway. Next episode will reveal the Nudist Beach secrets and end with them going back to the school to save Takarada. The episode after that will probably be half about the rescue and half about Takarada's backstory and his connection to Satsuki that they kept mentioning in their banter.
He gave a legit response though anon. Stop being immature just because he doesn't agree with you.
lol meant to link to >>100828523
>mako still not dead
klk is shonenshit-tier in terms of plot
If you add an a in front of mako and read it backwards, it means 'homosexual'.
Mako confirmed gay for ryuuko.
But satsuki will win the ryuuko.
There is a great sadness in my heart.
So is everything else when you analyze like a retard.
the punch in episode 3 was much better though
Is this the main thread?
That episode was crazy.
Well hey its not over yet
I don't remember TTGL being gold from start to finish, there were plenty of lulls to my recollection in the middle and the ending....well the last fight was quality.
FLCL I adore but that was only 6 eps.
I think KLK will end up overall Samurai champloo tier
You see, we haven't been led to believe she is such a generic person who wants to oppose Satsuki because of some sense of morals. She might hate her attitude, but she was no revolutionary. She seemed primarily concerned with the people around her she knew and cared about rather than some abstract ideals.
I'm not saying its unreasonable to oppose Satsuki more directly, but my primary point was that at we really supposed to care about her plight? She seems to get caught up in the flow rather than forging her character and ambitions herself. I just don't want someone like that to beat Satsuki, which is everything that she is not, through the power of friendship.
Uzu leapfrogging up Gama was pretty kawaii, I gotta say.
there's nothing to analyze, the plot is shallow as fuck and there's barely any development
Give me an example of an anime with a very deep plot and massive amounts of plot development within 15 episodes.
I want to see where Mako and Gama go next!
I can't wait for Gamako development
Why is Satsuki such a slut?
If you can't make a good, or appropriate, rebuttal against shitposting or obvious bait, just don't post.
I will be very happy if we see more Gamagoori and Mako interaction in future episodes!
>doesn't dot out all the splats
A bloody ejaculation is frightening.
There is no way in hell I am going to spend any measure of actual effort replying to bait.
It's blood from the throatfucking
Why do people compare this to TTGL. It's like comparing Kill bill to django.
Also keima was dead by like episode 7 son.
Point taken. You have defeated me today, shitposter-kun.
I thank god with every Thursday that passes. Knowing this low selling, cheap, forced hyped shit is one step closer to ending and the actual next series deserving of its hype and praise (JoJo part 3) is one step closer to airing.
Like why are you watching anime if not for the animation...
HOLY SHIT YES
This whole thing should've happened like 7 episodes ago.
That is an excellent point. You have convinced me thoroughly that Kill la Kill is not worth my time. Your arguments are both valid sound. This is a legitimate problem your complaint has brought to my attention, and I agree with you wholeheartedly.
Because KnK was a godsend, right? I mean, it had beautiful animation. That means that the anime is 10/10 in all regards.
I think Trigger is purposefully not disturbing the status quo too much as a way of parodying western cartoons.
There is really no other excuse for such snail pace plot movements. It definitely did not need 15 episodes to get to where the story is now.
Certainly better to watch than KLK
I'm sure you're just following the IRC shitposting that KnK sucked, but it was actually pretty good in large part due to that crisp animation.
That uniform is so fucking awesome.
one i watched recently: jojo's bizarre adventure
it's not even hard, honestly; klk barely progressed
all main characters remains basically the same,
ryuko's still trying to avenge her dad,
satsuki's still trying to do... whatever
the elite 4 remains the same, only uzu had some development
3-4 characters were introduced but only nui is relevant
they waited for too long to put things in motion
If this were any other anime, this shit would have been 60+ episodes down the line. The Naturals Election arc would have been 14 episodes long. The tournament would be at least 3 per Deva. Nui's fight would be 3-7 episodes long. I can't even imagine how many episodes they'd take to cover the battles that happened at Osaka, Kobe, and Kyoto.
This anime is still going fast as fuck.
Wait. There's a professional American football player that does youtube anime reviews?
Anyone got a gif of Monkey taking his anal virginity yet?
KlK's hype and praise before it even started airing came from TTGL. Without it no one would care for this team or studio.
Not to mention in almost every way this is "suppose" to be a successor to it.
one day, they're arent going to stop short on her.
>that smear abuse
I'm not sure I like this new meta shitposting. It's too close to what it's trying to mock and might encourage those kinds of people to stay here
Your new is showing.
every episode I learn new ways on how to save budget from watching KLK.
Are you ready for Rebuild tier animation once the second cour starts and Khara helps animation? Are you ready to be blinded by the lense flare?
>Not to mention in almost every way this is "suppose" to be a successor to it.
No, the staff clearly wanted to distinguish KLK from TTGL. The only reason the comparisons are brought up are due to both shows having the same director and scriptwriter.
>Jojo's Bizarre adventure
>This plot advancement and character development
There isn't a single way this is true in the slightest.
>all main characters remains basically the same
They haven't wildly changed, but that doesn't mean they haven't developed as characters.
>ryuko's still trying to avenge her dad
No she isn't. She gave that up after going berserk.
>satsuki's still trying to do... whatever
Her plans aren't clear yet. This isn't some kind of negative because a major character who has been waging war hasn't made her grand plan reveal when we still have around 10 episodes left to cover it.
>the elite 4 remains the same, only uzu had some development
We actually learned about all of them, their backstories, behaviors, why they are loyal, etc. Each one pushed into a segment in an episode.
>3-4 characters were introduced but only nui is relevant
Most are irrelevant side-characters, although Takarada might actually play a major role as we see Nudist Beach was trying to rescue him.
Honestly, I think you're trying your hardest to simply not get it.
The show already has been using some Khara staff for quite a while.
>Are you ready for Rebuild tier animation once the second cour starts and Khara helps animation?
Oh boy, more shitty looking CGI.
>Are you ready for more IRC shitposting and lies being believed by /a/nons who already don't watch the anime?
Your overly defensive posturing only makes you look more butthurt. You know that, right?
FUCK THAT UNIMPORTANT SHIT
DID YOU SEE HOW THESE TWO ALMOST CONFESSED TO EACH OTHER?
I CANT FUCKING WAIT FOR MORE
They are already here and they are doing a fantastic job.
Same art, same animation style(although KlK is much cheaper) same OP singer, same wackiness. In TTGL they did a reasonable and balanced job with the wackiness. If a character died you could actually sympathize for him or her and it was believable.
This morning was aggravating. I wanted to discuss the episode, but everybody was spamming IRC-related retardation and it was near-impossible to discuss outside of "HURR NOTHING HAPPENED" and "THEY SAID THIS WAS GOING TO BE A SUPER MAJOR IMPORTANT EPISODE!" when they were citing sources which had nothing to do with that. I'm a bit miffed.
you're clinically retarded. The entirety of the cowboy bebop plot was developed in like, 5 total episodes and it has more emotional punch in 1 than in KLKs entire series so far.
Trigger is shipping them hard.
I do love dem crack pairings.
But I meant that in a good way. Light pollution aside, Rebuild looked great.
>same animation (just totally different)
Fuck yeah, the fucking BATMAN
Sanzigen is in charge of the CGI, the few Khara staff contributed to key animation, directing, and storyboards. Khara staff have been showing up occasionally of KLK since much earlier on.
>same OP singer
yeah, the cheapness i was talking about.
Gama x Mako ship confirmed
So basically, for the majority of the series:
>We're bounty hunters
>We found Bounty A, B, C, D, E, F
>Some of them were nice
>Some of them were bad
Same exact lack of development. The only difference being Cowboy Bebop covers fractal events for most of the series, and deviates into a "main" plot in the lattermost few episodes, where KLK is following a singular plot to the end.
>15 episodes in
>no one is kill
>except for ryuuko's dad
>i've seen some shit
9/10 episode, entertaining from start to finish
I wonder what would happen if Mako did that during Ryuuko and Satsuki's honeymoon.
Alternative hypothesis: They're shit at writing and the show just sucks
Yeah, OTP confirmed this episode.
>Mako puts herself in the middle of danger
>only the dead will know peace from what is to come
still waiting for Senketsu to be revealed as Ryuuko's dad because why the fuck not.
as fast a pace as this series is going I feel like the point we're at now should have been already been reached by the end of s1 at minimum
Man, Juggernaut looks pretty badass right there
>Kill la kill
>nobody is killed
I want a refund
All the random ass-slapping would suddenly have context instead of being non-sequiter.
Senketsu was Nui all along.
Here you go
>It's time to tell you everything
inb4 we learn nothing
>15 episodes in
>Still expecting characters to die in Kill la Kill
But in all seriousness, if any characters are gong to die in a show like this, it's generally towards the end, during the final battle.
OH FUCK, IT ALL MAKES SENSE
>She's standing on his thigh so she can stare him down from closer
BEST OTP OF THE YEAR ALL YEARS
>>100828752 He really cares about her.
Not even close.
The episodes where the plot is uncovered goes into things such as:
Why spike is so aloof, and why even though he's perpetually unfulfilled, and used to be fucking rich, he'll be modestly happy with a smoke and a full belly
Why faye fell in love with spike
Why Jet plays the fatherly role
In KLK even in the main plot episodes here's the character development we get: nothing.
Ryuuko has two emotional states: confident and angry.
If you can't see why the writing is bare bones, you're clinically retarded. You can like what you want, but there's zero character development
youve proven youre not sakamoto, he calls her gaki, and even if he did call her prof he wouldnt do it in English
What wouldn't I give for a Metal Gear Rising style Kill la Kill game.
With >dat soundtrack
>Nui was in every episode ALL ALONG
That top right picture is a bit out of context, isn't it? He wasn't even talking to Mako.
>Ryuuko has two emotional states: confident and angry.
don't forget gloomy
>yfw takarada comes back as a massive flaming faggot.
>all these people asking why she fought Satsuki instead of leaving
You're right to inquire, but do you guys honestly think Satsuki would just let Ryuko leave after she turned on her kamui and all and Ryuko attacked her 5 seconds earlier?
gloomy ryuuko was episodic
Oh, come on. Of course we will learn everything.
Also, Mako will die.
>Ryuuko just bouncing around from one motivation to another
He didn't seem any different when he shittalked her right afterward.
wouldn't be the first time Satsuki's done that.
>war never changes
We've learned why Ryuuko is constantly after Satsuki, we've learned what happened to her father and who his killer was, how a lack of family has affected her and being introduced to one has changed her, and we've seen a growing attachment to her Kamui.
We've learned why all of the devas are so loyal to her, how they behaved in the past, seeing how they were all in control of their own situation fully prior to Satsuki's interference.
We've learned the structure of the school and society in the universe, that there are many organizations that have different loyalties.
We've learned who Nudist Beach was in this episode and have seen their (lack of) power in action against the four most powerful captains in Japan.
And next episode we'll see more answered to come.
You are comparing a completed anime to an incomplete one, and this incomplete one has explained a shitload more in its relative time. They weren't directed or written similarly, so you can compare apples and oranges as to HOW they were developed, but to say there is none is outright retarded.
Yeah? Why would she care about her? Her objective was to destroy Nudist Beach and capture Takarada.
>Mako will die
after ep03: that's most likely true
after ep08: i doubt that
after ep15: nah
>Episode 3: I'm going to crush your lofty words, about ambition and goals
>Episode 15: I'm going to crush your lofty ambitions
>Ryuuko merged just her hand with Senketsu
Well I figured out what super saiyan 3 is gonna be.
Also Satsuki is probably gonna accidentally or be forced to go rage mode eventually.
Im callin it.
Aw, Son of a bitch
Ryuuko still thought Satsuki was her dad's killer in episode 3.
I miss Nui.
Her soundtrack is so badass and ominous at the same time I just love it.
It's by far the most frightening and blatantly OP character in the show.
>I wont show mercy, even if its you
>even if its you
>What, Matoi Ryuuko?
>That cloud looks like Gamagoori's dick
until we see Ragyo kill everyone with her pinky.
You guys have to understand that because Senketsu was developed by her dadit's like the only family she has. Obviously you'd be pissed if your father figure was cut tto pieces and distrubuted among a bunch blinded faggots. She's had enough of Satookis callous actions.
Nah. In fact I think the preview works against that theory. We are going to, as it was explicitly stated, learn Isshin's secret.
I think that confirms "I want to know" is his song.
She never warmed up to Satsuki's ideals ever since then. She hated Satsuki's guts since 3, and since she discovered who her dad's murderer was, it's not as if she just said "Well fuck it, I guess that means that this person I hated is now magically someone I am indifferent towards".
Ironic, post-modern anti-writing.
Ragyo is just going to turn up the shine, and vaporize everyone.
DIES WELT IS GRAUSAM
I work for Trigger.
Mako is kill.
>same OP singer
nigger you cant be serious
>Mako doesn't fight Gamagori
>Episode 3: I GOTTA FIND OUT WHO KILL MY DA
>Episode 15: ...
but Nui was the one who killed Senketsu, again!
while walking like a supermodel flaunting herself for the press, no doubt.
I double-work for Trigger. Mako is not kill. Thanks for your time.
The only "development" in any of that was nonon's and gamagori's. They're literally the two best developed characters in the entire series, and they only had 1:30 of screentime devoted to them, respectively.
None of ryuuko's actions are remotely in line with her "motivation."
The development is so utterly thin it's a joke. 15 episodes is a lot of time, close to 6 hours. Some of the most emotional stories ever told have been told in less than a single hour. Yoru argument is a joke.
As far as directorial style, obviously it's going for flash and pomp. but don't act as if the flash and pomp is a "different" kind of character development, when in reality, it is a complete lack of development.
You can't possibly be serious?
>>yfw takarada comes back as a massive flaming faggot.
What if he comes back as Monkey's romantic interest?
>Senketsu doesn't get an upgrade.
>Implying Ragyo isn't going to show up in the last 10 seconds of the final episode and scold Kiryuiin for being a little shit
>Implying Revocs isn't just a run of the mill corporation
>So why was she fighting Satsuki?
>She doesn't really care about Nudist Beach.
>She has no beef with Satsuki because she didn't kill her dad.
>She doesn't really have any opposing ideals or morals.
>Just why? You got Senketsu back. You can fuck off away now.
Ryūko's lack of a clear motivation for opposing Satsuki is intentional. Satsuki called her out on it in the episode, just as she did back in episode 3.
It will probably change next episode when Ryūko finally learns at least a large part of the truth about her father.
what has developed about Gamagoori though? He's always been an intensely loyal masochist. It's mostly characterization that's happened.
So, what do you think is going to be so spoilertastic about the new OP that they can't show it to us? After watching this episode, I guess it just shows the new E4 outfits, and maybe Sensei and Mohawk appear more.
still don't like ryuko at all
muh flimsy characterization aside she's just a standard MC
mako is growing on me but literally only for her interactions with gamagoori, she's useless to me otherwise
>fashion companies with eccentric CEO's and designers
GEE, THATS UNHEARD OF!
GUYS GUYS SOMETHING IMPORTANT IS GOING TO HAPPEN IN EPISODE 15
THAT'S WHY THEY'RE CHANGING THE OPENING IN EPISODE 16 BECAUSE IT'S GOING TO HAVE SPOILERS
WHAT DOES IT MEAN GUYS?
The rabbit hole only gets more deep the longer the show goes on
The new OP will be sora iro days
>even if it's you
Guys guys guys, don't get too excited. Those were some pretty liberal subs.
The implication of his japanese line is that he would use force against someone who was weak/noncombatant.
They're not shipping the two
her development was close to 0,
the only thing that differs her from ep01 nonon is that we now know how she became a deva.
fucking uzu had more development
>They're literally the two best developed characters in the entire series
I'm starting to really wonder what your definition of "Developed" is at this point. Because it certainly doesn't line up with mine. Sanageyama's character has developed more than any other over the course of the series, but I guess if I was completely retarded I'd miss that.
>None of ryuuko's actions are remotely in line with her "motivation."
Her initial motivation was to beat Satsuki down, shove her ambitions down her throat, and get answers as to why her dad died. Ryuuko got her answers, but was also basically told she had been used as a tool for Satsuki's ambitions, further inflaming her already high hate of them. So she is still beating Satsuki down to shove her ambitions down her throat.
>it is a complete lack of development.
If I were as blind as you, I'd probably miss every word in the series. Thankfully I'm not.
I loved the part where Jakunon's new improved anti kamui uniform did exactly shit.
>tfw you will never be a well developed member of the cast
Nonon model kit when?
My dick would not be able to handle that.
I'd say gamagoori went from being an idealist much like ryuuko to siding with harsh realism, hence his transition into masochism.
Again, paper thin writing, but it's in line with his actions and makes sense in the context of the show.
Ryuuko's actions have no bearing on her motivations, and seem to be completely contrived to keep the fights coming, by comparison
>Guerilla vs Nerd
>Naked vs Eyes Mcgee
>Mankanshoku vs Gorilla
>Ryuuko vs Satsuki
I wonder who Nonon's final boss will be.
>Blow up Nudist Beach's HQ, which was literally the entire purpose of their school trip
>did exactly shit
Mako? She's Ryuuko's Nonon.
Nui better return this fucking episode, Don't let me down Trigger.
they could've sent 2 stars to destroy that base, Nudist Beach fucking sucks as an organization.
Oh yeah, forgot about sanageyama.
Anyway my main point was that the character development was paper thin. You haven't really countered any of that. And, no, ryuuko's actions make little to no sense, and exist solely to keep the plot engine chugging along.
You're not very intelligent, or you REALLY like the series to the point where it is clouding your perception.
Nonon x Inu fans get a bone thrown to them this episode, too.
i really wish this show had a bigger inferno cop vibe to it than it has going on now. this is just too damn boring and tedious to watch on a weekly basis
We're seeing more of REVOCS in 16, so she'll probably have a role. Although she won't be doing her...thing. At least, I should assume she won't be.
>She couldn't have done that with MK I
I think you missed the point of my post. Her uniform was supposed to have been tweaked to make it more effective against Senketsu
>inu starting to talk back
i got to find who kill mako
>Takarada gets jobbed
Well, I saw it coming.
At least he remains defiant up till the end. I hope he returns somehow and Sangeyama DIDN'T murder him off screen.
A mission has a purpose we don't know about, which is revealed to be the destruction of a rebel base whose motivations are unknown, ending in a climax where forces we don't see are defeated by a feint made by more forces we don't see.
Great writing, guys. Keep it up.
After ep05: Not a chance.
Wasn't episode 15 supposed to be the turning point of the series?
The real deal?
Because it felt like an average KlK episode
OH WOW RYUUKO IS FIGHTING SATSUKI WITHOUT FULL KAMUI
HER HAND IS BURNING
THIS IS SO EXCITING
HOW IS SHE GOING TO GET HER GLOVE BACK
Oh, she just took it. Huh.
but that's what every KIK episode feels like.
>people didn't love Inferno Cop
>people didn't love Little Witch Academia
People care about the studio because they have a lot of talent.
Wasn't episode 12 supposed to be the turning point of the series?
The real deal?
Because it felt like an average KlK episode
>Anyway my main point was that the character development was paper thin. You haven't really countered any of that.
My argument, many posts ago, was for you to provide me examples of something with substance. You gave me Cowboy Bebop, and gave me nothing but "we got answers", of which I stated that KLK has the exact same thing. You then went on to say "No, it's shallow, you retard".
> And, no, ryuuko's actions make little to no sense, and exist solely to keep the plot engine chugging along.
Again, she has stated since episode 3 she's wanted to crush Satsuki's ideals. Satsuki has constantly egged her along with them, and in episode 12, outright stated she was using Ryuuko towards her ideals. In 13, Senketsu was destroyed and distributed among the frontline soldiers. So for 14, all of her "fights" were to recover Senketsu. In 15, she had already engaged Satsuki, stolen back the one last part of Senketsu she needed, but due to her rage at Satsuki, and again, her cruel ideals which obliterated Osaka, she wanted to crush them. I get the feeling you're ignoring points just because you don't agree with them.
Jesus Christ. Those boytits.
I need Nui pictures
>yfw he returns with Dotonbori Robo MKII
>He teams up with Nudist Beach and Ryuko to win the KillLaBowl
>yfw he curbstomps Monkey
>yfw again when Ryuuko tries to show mercy on a defeated Satsuki
>Takarada tells her his family has bought out REVOCS
>Satsuki commits sudoku
Oh boy, something mysterious and or imposing is happening to the protag
How will they make it out? Something painful? Something trying? Something creative?
Oh wait, it just happened: the series
I'm beginning to think it was gainax that wrote ALL of gurren lagann and that this joker was just in charge of special effects
>At least he remains defiant up till the end. I hope he returns somehow and Sangeyama DIDN'T murder him off screen.
You know, I honestly doubt that.
Somehow, Sanageyama's been spouting some intense moralfag shit ever since the last episode.
I c a trip 2 da malt shop in Gama's pimp ride in season2
>ez, baby, you're makin mah life fibers all stiff
They didn't spam it for all the previous week and tweeted like crazy though.
I don't know who is trolling who anymore. Truly I don't.
If a show causes this much unhappiness, then without a doubt it must be terrible!
>How will they make it out
>A literally stated temporary measure just so she could steal back the one piece needed to permanently stay that way
I don't know genius, obviously Ryuuko's hand will now magically stop burning because of the power of friendship and they synchronized without it, meaning challenging Satsuki was entirely irrelevant and she could have simply avoided the battle altogether.
Look man, if you can't recognize bad and inconsistent writing I'm not here to cure your autism. Play your game on someone else.
>everyone and their mothers in Japan hypes up episode 3 for a week as the "turning point of KLK"
>episode 15 is exactly episode 3 except with gold paint
FILTHY SCUM IT IS AGAINST SCHOOL POLICY TO SOAPBOX!
Notice how OPs topic is called "anticlimax: the series"?
The writers clearly don't know how to utilize dramatic tension.
And of course, when you lack an actual argument, just whip out the ol' strawman. Valid statements all around.
I'm pretty happy for Mako/Gamagoori OTP.
[SIDE CHARACTER SEXUAL TENSION INTENSIFIES]
Not that guy, but he had actual arguments and you're just spouting autism. It's because he's right and you've got nothing to say.
>ITS GONNA BE GREAT, TRIGGER SAID SO
>it was merely okay, story didn't go anywhere
Every KLK episode.
they could've killed someone, that's a great way to use tension
Was it really necessary bamboo-asshole thing? It really made me angry, fuck monkey.
>everyone and their mothers in Japan
I don't recall a single post proving there was any hype towards this episode beyond the norm outside of /a/, where I can suspect it was IRC or just one guy.
>mechas literally standing up to THE GODDAM ELITE FOUR
>we're called the elite four cause there are four of us!
If these matchups come back, it won't be in the final battle but rather the last time that Ryūko and Satsuki face each other as enemies. And Nonon will probably end up helping Satsuki again.
I absolutely loved the episode and am totally hyped about the next one. /a/ needs to lighten the fuck up and accept things for what they are not what they want them to be.
>>Takarada tells her his family has bought out REVOCS
Satsuki doesn't have a single actual "ideal" she just spouts things that sound cool and dictatorial.
Moreover, as I already said, satsuki just lets ryuuko off the hook in order to further the fights, and vice versa. It's some sailor moon monster of the week tier writing. It's awful.
Having the basic elements of a plot, such as a character having a name and a motivation for the first episode does not mean it has a dveloped or skillfully written plot.
looks like all the obstacles are being cleared for the OTP
I was kind of hoping Ryuko would kill Nonon.
Like, just because was in the way.
Then would could see Berserker Satsuki
>Satsuki doesn't have a single actual "ideal"
>implying Sailor Moon is bad
Yeah no. You're just being a shitposter.
Speaking of berserker Satsuki, that's where I thought the blood trick was going. I figured getting someone else's blood in Junketsu would have some crazy effect, and we'd get to see some Kamui vs Kamui action. Instead she just threw blood in Satsuki's eyes. What a letdown.
So how did Monkey escape the crab paste
That seems like kind of a shitty deal
Also, Satuski's 'I struck their hearts' thing was Mary Sue as fuck. How does that even make sense.
>Satsuki ever doing anything improper
i don't think he was implying that sailor moon is bad, more like that the plot is surprisingly boring and stereotypical
Satsuki still isn't at full power yet since she's still dominating Junketsu. But I guess they're saving her power up moment for THAT.
I'm starting to feel that 'wasted potential' is the meta-theme of the entire series.
Fuck weeabo with no life.
Get back to your basement.
She broke all their weapons, didn't she? It was more like "I struck fear into their hearts". Or at least that's how I interpreted it.
>Satsuki doesn't have a single actual "ideal"
She has been going on for every single episode about how she desires to subjugate all of those who are below her through fear or greed, that everybody she controls are little more than pigs in human clothing, that she will offer positions to those who can prove themselves, and that she only wants to associate with those who have the resolve to make her goals a reality, of which we still need more time to see what they are in full.
>satsuki just lets ryuuko off the hook in order to further the fights
That's literally a plot point. She wanted Ryuuko to go and defeat all of the useless and lazy 2-stars in the school because they weren't powerful enough to hold up Satsuki's grand ambitions and were simply wasting space and time. Then she wanted Ryuuko to do battle with all of the 3-star uniforms so that Iori and Inumuta could analyze them and modify the uniforms to cover their flaws and weaknesses to become more powerful. Lastly, the only reason she left Ryuuko there was because it would be shameful to kill someone who has no power and a destroyed Kamui. So she instead stuck Senketsu on a ton of one-star uniforms to make them powerful, and to analyze the effects of a Kamui on a typical one-star uniform.
Try to actually pay attention.
Wow, you're so out of touch with reality. This is why I don't come on /a/ anymore. Anime these days is waifu otaku pandering, is terrible and faggots like you defend it to their last breath.
there are TONS of people in this topic who are saying the plot goes nowhere and the characters are paper thin, but you just can't accept that.
Have fun with your love pillow, buddy. This is why you;re incapable of relating to people without others thinking you're some kind of creepy weirdo
>Also, Satuski's 'I struck their hearts' thing was Mary Sue as fuck. How does that even make sense. ASK NOT THE SPARROW HOW THE EAGLE SOARS
You know, it's 15 episodes into the series and barely anything has happened.
Everyone keeps hyping up their own expectations of what may happen, only to be let down when it doesn't.
Personally, I just enjoy the show, I find it entertaining and ignore the hype in threads. Join me in enlightenment
Ryuuko episode 14
>I'm going to take back my glove
Ryuuko episode 15
>literally takes back her glove
You guys are fucking unbelievable, she did exactly what she said she was going to do
>fucking piece of shit is too slow, shitty writing
Things speed up
>moving too fast piece of shit, fucking dropped
he's kinda right.
her ideals are not clear, her motives are not clear
she just spouts a bunch of shit about people being inferior but no reason as to why
also, it bothered me this episode how she looked down o crab dude for using his money to achieve things, when she does exactly the same
Made it seem like Takarada liked it though.
they still have to fight Ragyo and HER 4 deva too.
I was actually agreeing with your statement. I thought it would be retarded to do anything BUT that. Hell, Senketsu outright stated that he couldn't use her hand for more than a minute, and Ryuuko said a minute would be more than enough. I can't even imagine what kind of thing they were expecting from that point on.
>Also, Satuski's 'I struck their hearts' thing was Mary Sue as fuck. How does that even make sense.
It's a metaphor. "Heart" in Japanese is more synonymous with "spirit" or "mind" than it is in English. She cut down their will to fight.
then there's people in full denial saying the show is living up to their expectations
So next week is sensei going to drop a big load of exposition on Ryuuko? He promised her answers.
I am none of you guys, just a side poster here.
I'm just going to say you can fuck right off and crawl back to whatever shithole you come from. Nobody gives a shit about how normalfag you are, and you being here inherently drags down the quality of this board.
I hope Nonon gets stabbed in the throat and goes mute, then she starts talking through her uniform
She's gonna find out who killed her dad.
>general dictatorial bullshit
Oh wow, so deep
Right, the plot is a thinly veiled excuse to show more fights. That's fine, taken as it is. But you can't really say it's even moderately developed writing. This is about as thin as it gets
That scene needed a TRIGGER warning.
Fuck off Marcos.
>KLK has no twists that doesn't include Nui
>everything is actually incredibly straight forward
I am genuinely curious about if these answers are going to be shit like Senketsu is her mom or if Ryuuko and Satsuki are sisters because Ryuuko's mom is Ragyo.
So the "crab paste" was actually Takarada's poop and that's why he had a conveniently placed hole in the crab-suit there, yes?
Not the anon you have been responding to obviously but I think he has somewhat of a point in deep in his arguments. In my eyes it's not really what Ryuuko is fighting for or anything like that but more how well it's been shown. Yes, early on Ryuuko mentions crushing Satsuki's ideals but we know this is all due to finding out who killed her dad. After this point in the series Ryuuko goes on to attend class, make a friend, participate in no late day, go through with the club plan with Mako, reminisce about her past, and generally do other things all while focusing not on Satsuki and the way she ran her school, but Satsuki and the information that she represented. It would have been very easy to simply sprinkle in comments made by Ryuuko showing who she disproced of Satsuki's ideal on a personal level. Due to the fact that these happened very rrarely seeing Ryuuko achieve her goal of finding out who killed her father then immediatly moving on the the next stage feels odd.
So Satsuki can destroy people's wills just by making a bunch of crazy-ass sword moves without actually hitting anything?
Also why didn't we get an episode centered entirely around the Devas yet
He's gunna tell her how the world works since apparently she has amnesia.
She raided outside highschools to get here where the fuck is that backstory?
My heart is broken.
>fucking piece of shit is too slow, shitty writing
>moving too fast piece of shit, fucking dropped
The pacing is a big problem.
What did you expect from MakoXGama shippers? They're desperate to plug all the holes this episode drilled.
Um, it's meant to be a callback to episode one as well.
the tournament arc was more exposition than fighting, we have enough deva episode.
SATAN YOUR BELLY IS YELLOW
>Oh wow, so deep
Your statement was literally "Satsuki doesn't have a single actual "ideal". I posted her ideals. Now you're saying they are generic and not deep. Stay on topic.
Satsuki and Ryuuko have never been on positive terms, and her killing off Satsuki's bad apples in no way qualifies for infighting.
> But you can't really say it's even moderately developed writing.
It's certainly deeper than what you think it is, considering your perception seems about as keen as a gnat's.
that will go nowhere, mark my words
>Senketsu turns out to be Ryuko's mom
Nui killed Senketsu though. Why does everyone forget Nui?
>Dad worked for Kiryuuin
>"That" incident happened with Kinue, i.e. her mom
>Nudist Beach split from Kiryuuin faction
>something cool is happening next episode!
>okay it kind of happened but it won't affect the plot at all
>something cool is happening next episode!
I hope we get to see them in their gym uniforms again. Especially Nonon.
But she didn't do something cool to get it. She just kinda took it. We didn't even see how she took it.
>So Satsuki can destroy people's wills just by making a bunch of crazy-ass sword moves without actually hitting anything?
>Swinging your sword with such force that a sonic boom surged outward and knocked many citizens on their asses
That's the kind of shit which demoralizes an army. I mean, unless the army is used to this kind of insane shit, which I'm assuming a band of civilians are not.
Here's how a normal story arc progresses
>man loses something
>learns value of X
>through regret, he changes his mistakes, and becomes stronger
>through sacrifice, he achieves X, but better
Now here's a KLK arc
>I am angry
>I lose X
>GRRR MORE ATTITUDE
>I have X back
>wow that was easy
This is why, no matter how FAST the story goes, it will never go anywhere. Ryuuko learned to "accept" senketsu. That could have qualified as growth if there was ever conflict between them in the first place. Ryuuko never learns from her mistakes. It's a mary sue syndrome, and that's why her character is static. When she becomes more powerful, it's arbitrary, unbelievable, and the viewer doesn't feel accomplished alongside her.
this is bad writing, folks
Only Mako could be friendship NTR'd by a crazy bitch that talks to her skirt.
I hope she dies
that's the straight forward answer I expect the show to give based on what has happened. It's pretty generic but fits the bill perfectly and even gives Ryuuko some motivation to fight Ragyo.
I think it's time to stop evading your ban, Siztra.
No-one wants you or your lackies here.
Thanks for the backup dude. I doubt they'll respond to you. It's obvious they just like the series because they can jack off to it.
Glad to see some of the people on this board aren't completely mentally disabled
>literally not taking into account Mr.DoshHereGrabItAll
>>I have X back
>Ignoring her having battled a number of others, understanding her inner anger is something to be watched but not something to be feared, learning that it was simply her willpower that keeps her together and not some otherwise misunderstood magic, and having had the thing she treasures so much destroyed right before said arc begins
seriously, you need to leave.
I was kind of hoping Trigger would defy expectations and have Takarada win. I mean, it was OBVIOUS Satsuki was gonna pulls some bullshit 'RESOLVE' shit, but seeing her hypocritcal agenda get shit on by a more 'realist' villain would have been nice.
But as always, Trigger's waifu Satsuki can do no wrong. Disappointing.
So what developments occurred in this episode? Never mind, just kidding.
>It's obvious they just like the series because they can jack off to it
>Not even saying "fap to it"
Because she's utterly forgettable and Senketsu is already back together.
Anticlimax with nudist beach aside I kinda liked this episode. First half was very enjoyable to watch and new uniforms look great. I loved that they showed some cute nonon interaction.
Like when Inu was complementing Nonon or when Nonon said "don't be silly" to satsuki as an anwser to her little joke.
>Also why didn't we get an episode centered entirely around the Devas yet
Maybe they will do the OVA's with them. They won't though, I don't think KLK sells enough for it
First you called me out on ad hominem, then you insult me
If anything, your perception is worse than mine because you are taking an obvious exaggeration "NO plot development" to not mean "extremely limited plot development."
You are fucking retarded. You KNOW the characters are paper thin, and you can only find "flaws" in my argument by taking it to a logical extreme.
ECM featuring Nonon when?
There was no fucking way in hell they were going to have the main antagonist of their show lose to a one off character.
anyone else have nosubs when trying to watch the horrible subs release?
i know, the mary sueness from Satsuki pissed me off this episode
>"my kamui can cut kamui, but yours can't cut mine!"
>forgetting Satsuki has won every battle thus far
Even a draw is a huge thing, subtle though.
Takarada X Satsuki
In our dreams;_;7
Same really. I was really hopeful, especially when they established that apparently the Japan is split between them.
all this anti-KLK samefagging must take a lot of effort.
Sorry, anon, but your messed up ideals won't be acknowledged in any fictional reality.
Is that some tripfag? I guarantee you I'm not him. Just so you're aware, even other anime fans find you faggots insufferable sometimes.
>klk defying expectations
remember when we thought schools were mechas and how ryuko and satsuki would team up halfway through the series to fight some epic villain. yeah...
one can hope though, especially since satsuki is so extremely fucking boring and stereotypical
What is she thinking about?
Do you think Takarada might become enough of an Ensemble-Darkhorse type character that Trigger throws him a bone later?
Or is he only popular here on /a/
they're going back to school next episode, we still have time for the mech!
Satsuki is that kid on the playground that has all your powers times infinity plus one, and rich parents.
shitsuki is a genuine mary sue by this point and this is undeniable.
this episode's bullshit of "I won anyways even though I was getting my shit kicked in" reeked of pisspoor writing and made me lose what little faith I had left on this series
not her kamui its an actual sword shes had since grade school
>First you called me out on ad hominem, then you insult me
Because I am raising actual counter-arguments, and you have ignored every single one in favor of just repeating "paper thin", "No development", and in one post "autism", which is literally an ad hominem argument.
>you are taking an obvious exaggeration "NO plot development" to not mean "extremely limited plot development."
When you are arguing and making assumptions on the opponent's understanding of your argument through text on 4chan, and speaking in absolutes at that, while constantly displaying you know fuck all about the series you are discussing, and ignoring every counterargument thrown your way, it's kinda hard to interpret what you mean.
>you can only find "flaws" in my argument by taking it to a logical extreme.
You can only find "flaws" in this series by taking them to logical extremes.
thinken bout revenge
I hated that fucker.
He's also the one who bullshits about catching pikablu.
still more than Trigger put into animation
>ba dum tsch
I know what she's not thinking about. Mako.
what do you think anon
>graph of normal plot progression
Looks like a slowly climbing line with equally spaced points.
>graph of KLK plot progression
Looks like a flower with a point in the middle and lines curving away and back to it.
>awesome glowing nipples of powers
>gets into a stupid metal gear to fight
Please tell this to the guy that thinks KLK has good writing
Who wouldn't feel blossoms of the heart when being filled with Sanageyama's wood?
what the fuck was that thing he was "wearing" after getting launched anyways
9k+ sales for Vol1
>that blingee frame
how can those metal gears stand up to goku uniform #3s?
>No "100% CRAZY"
God dammit. Well that's still good enough.
Anyone with taste
>But as always, Trigger's waifu Satsuki can do no wrong. Disappointing.
Trigger outright said the heroes of the show are Ryuuko and Satsuki.
on another notice I found the use of cgi to be rather acceptable this time around
looking at a 5 to 6k average. Not bad. Nowhere near as good as TTGL.
I assume the the speedos are built to DOCKINGU with the metal gear which is controlled by pelvic movement.
>cap on a cap
>one BD out
I know BD sales always lower after the first volume, but come on. There are going to be 9 in total.
How do you know that.
I said how do you know that. Answer blood-in-the-mouth face.
How good was TTGL doing as it was airing?
She's becoming aware of her mary sue status.
I wanna assume she was bullshitting, and Ryuuko fell for it. Otherwise another explanation could be that it was simply because Junketsu was created by REVOCS, the most powerful organization in the world, and Senketsu was made by Isshin, a mad scientist in his lab hiding from REVOCS.
About that, is junketsu stronger than senketsu?
I didn't get it
Really good because it has a few things KLK is missing. Character development. Plot progression.
The things it can't cut are next to none
I kind of assumed Junketsu was stronger than Senketsu, it's just how things work normally.
considering the budget, I won't be surprised if this makes more money than TTGL though.
This series would have been redeemed if Nui jumped inand backstabbed Satsuki when she was unarmed, but nooo we get further mary suing and not a single bit of plot progression
Sanageyama has the best body.
Not too bara big like Gama.
Not too noodle bishounen like Inu.
What we've learned this episode:
Nonon can do math
>there are four of us that is why we're called the elite four!
>In the scene where she is flying with Satuski she states she is ambitious for power which mysteriously leads no where
Takarada is funding nudist beach
>sworn enemy of Satuski, half of japan is divided
Satuski can still do budha mary sue shit
snake X dog
Mako X Gama
I'm talking about sales, not your subjective opinion on the quality of either series.
You're that guy who's arguing with the other guy right? You're coming across as pretty fanny-flustered now.
It had pretty steady average. As you can imagine though. After episode 8 it took to the top of the sales chart and stayed.
Nobody asked your opinion, We are talking about sales here.
>this amount of mad
Hahahahahahahaha fucking leave babby.
You want to be held like this. Close to his untamed and rowdy heart.
Search your feelings, you know it to be true.
captcha: love pendlnr
Well, I think he's going to come back at some point anyways.
so we have snake, dog and monkey so what's gama supposed to be?
fucking this! it doesn't make sense! i didn't like how trigger literally bend everything to satsukis advantage. she saw through sensei's disguise despite having literally no reason to be suspicious and how the jamming rounds are now utterly useless for some reason.
they're both 100% life fiber how can one be stronger than the other?
>Mako X Gama
There are people who actually think this is still a thing? Even after this episode?
still waiting for her to kill Mako. Any day now. Except Ryuuko doesn't care about Mako anymore.
Where have you been the past 14 episodes?
>I don't think KLK sells enough for it
Wasn't it like the third best selling anime? It's quite popular.
Nope. That would be me. I like how you're calling samefag on every critic in this thread when the THREAD OP was calling the series shit.
But you're too autistic to understand the series has some very serious flaws. Have fun with your mental disorder
>that scene when Senketsu was happily hopping next to Ryuko
Anyone has a .gif of that?
>how can one be stronger than the other
because Satsuki is a mary sue.
You know how people joked about Takarada funding Trigger and then bending the show to his will? That's exactly what Satsuki is doing, this is where the mary sue power comes from. This is the big twist
Are you blind and deaf. This episode pretty much confirmed how OTP they are.
>she saw through sensei's disguise despite having literally no reason to be suspicious
forgot about this. that was dumb
>When she becomes more powerful, it's arbitrary, unbelievable
>using mary sue wrong
I want retards to stop.
Takarada-sama please come back and save this anime
>What are Life Fibers?
>What are Kamui?
>I know the answers to these things
Because she knows all about them. We may get some details next episode, keep in mind she's bathing and not wearing Junketsu.
Perhaps the shock on her face is witnessing will be Junketsu related.
I thought Kamen Rider Fourze was a fluke because Toei and Nakashima Kazuki would be back full force for this.
the jamming rounds are useless now?
Except the subs you read were a very loose translation. He was saying he'd use force against someone who was weak, NOT that he'd use force "even against you."
The way the language works, there wasn't an emotional weight behind the wording. He was saying he hated using force against the weak. Remember his story arc?
>Animators of LWA
>Writer of TTGL
>Original, not hindered by bad source work
>2 cours, no rushing
I thought this couldn't go wrong, they kept hyping this episode and i'm just disappointed that the whole point of FIFTEEN episodes was that MC joins the team opposing the antagonist.
Ryuuko's mom has to wake up at some point
>he thinks Ryuko and Satsuki won't team up still
It's still fucking obvious as fuck that she's using Ryuko and when the time comes she will use her against her mom. Jesus Christ it's almost spelled out for you.
Touching dem nipples of course.
NO SHUT UP FAGGOT KLK MAKES PERFECT SENSE YOU JUST DON'T SEE HOW SMARTLY IT'S WRITTEN
seemed like it, they jammed a kamui a few episodes ago, yet NB got beaten by the elite 4 so easily.
It really is.
>Work where Satsuki has them fool around for her pleasure.
Some women just want to watch the world screw.
>the entire episode is barely animated
>except for that one sequence that Sushio probably spent two months on
depends on what happens in episode 16, if the answers make Satsuki somehow Ryuuko's ally. Because the way the show has been, and we're 15 episodes in now mind you, Ryuuko has no fucking reason to get along with Satsuki.
>they're both 100% life fiber how can one be stronger than the other?
Use your brain a little. We've seen that clothes made of the life fiber take on user-specific attributes when synched. Ryuuko's kamui is more versatile, Satsuki's is tougher. It's nothing special.
What does Toei have to do Nakashima in relation to KlK? Also, this is nowhere near as bad as Fourze.
Nakashima wrote Fourze.
Fourze was better than this garbage.
that one sequence was half CGI anyway, they're not putting that much effort into it.
That would've been obvious if Trigger knew what the fuck they were doing but after this episode I'm not so sure they know.
>they kept hyping this episode
No. No they didn't.
That's not the only scene, m8. He was concerned about her all the time during the fight.
Check out >>100828752, the two pictures on the left showed that he cared about her.
Sure he cares about all the students and specially the ones who are bullied/weak, but his concern for Mako is different. He probably sees her as someone admirable or as one potential friend, but trigger is doing this for a purpose and shippers gonna ship.
They only people hyping 15 was the IRC, which you bought without any proof.
Living the dream
I don't even ship these two, but Satsuki watching them doing it is hot.
>Trigger doesn't know what they are doing
>But I do
What was the point of kill la kill?
Sure if you like Kamen Rider Double without any of its endearing traits.
u kan depead me uko!
gotta find out who kill my dad
Dress for success, or die like the rest.
To be entertaining as fuck and it SURE DID SUCCEED AT THAT!
But Fourze was nothing like Double.
Takarada was about to save anime, but Monkey fucked him over, I can't believe this bullshit, it's as Trigger doesn't want KLK to be good.
But she already did.
>use your brain a little
Someone sure is getting high and mighty
There's no indication whatsoever of what you said.
If anything, they feel much more threatened by ryuuko's mastery over the kamui. So it doesn't explain the power differential much
Why there's a Dendrobium in KLK
Neither did Viral until the true final boss appeared. Ryuko doesn't know shit about Ragyo and it's very obvious that Ragyo is going to betray Satsuki and vice versa. It's obvious Ragyo is the big bad because of the way they've been building her up and because we know she's going to betray Satsuki at some point. Ryuko will join forces with Satsuki because it's necessary to save Mako and the others.
>remember when we thought schools were mechas
Please, no, don't hurt me more
So what if, let's just tease the idea, what if they explain this in the next episode?
All I really wanted from KLK was good fights but it doesn't even deliver on that front because the fights are rife with bullshit random power level jumps.
I still don't think it implies a romantic connection. Gamagoori is honorable and wants to protect the weak. He's not a murderer
shippers gonna ship.
>was that MC joins the team opposing the antagonist.
We've known for weeks that she doesn't. Official BD summary says Ryuuko doesn't side wither Nudist Beach or Kiryuiin's ideals.
The big deal is that's the end of the first half and the second half is supposed to have more hot blooded drama than TTGL according to the writer.
I'm sure you know how their show works better than them right? Also this episode was fucking fine.
what was the point of your post?
shit's is 24 episodes long. if they keep up this pacing it'll get nowhere new that.
we'll end up with ryuko x satsuki x nui in the last episode and ragyo will be nothing but a side character
It's not like that excuses your shitposting. If you want to hate on the series, go ahead. You don't need to be an ass about it.
What's so great about him again?
He was some One Piece character design, which is terrible.
Except they've been explained by the plot multiple times.
>Someone sure is getting high and mighty
Someone sure is being stupid.
>There's no indication whatsoever of what you said.
Except everything we've seen every single episode for the past 15 episodes.
well she's more or less on the Nudist Beach team now though, I mean the only people left are Aikuro and Tsumugu.
babbys first shounen
There was hints that Nonon's character were going to be developed soon from the lines that were exchanged when Satsuki was using Nonon to catch up to Ryuuko.
So, there's hope. She's not my favorite character, but it'd be a little sad if she didn't get development.
Also, she will probably leave them later
>nails on the glove
you are a faggot
>and ragyo will be nothing but a side character
You must be retarded if you think this. There would be no reason to introduce her whatsoever. All the other side characters have been important and done things and none of them have been built up like Ragyo.
It's about budget. This is actually probably better animated than TTGL if you compare budgets, there's tons of passion for the show by the staff but they didn't have the money for it really.
They're doing a lot with very little. We'll see what happens with the last 9 episodes since Rebuild people are on board for it, maybe some cash went there.
he's anime Moot
>Three shit episodes in a row.
Is KLK confirmed dead? The answer is YES.
So what about that newsletter TL that said everyone at Trigger became more and more serious as they started the second half?
Something about losing their smiles or something?
I doubt it. They've explained fuck all so far.
Just sayin' you don't have to be a dick if someone doesn't find the KLK rules to be internally consistent. The series is a bit of a clusterfuck
I really hope they will develop her, just want see Nonon suffer
'Eeerk. This weirdo helped me but this is making me uncomfortable.'
Suggestion: Two of the Gaijins holding swords to each other's necks
episode 13 was fucking great though. 14-15 stepped on the potential though.
>last three episodes
>episode 13 was fucking great
>fights are rife with bullshit random power level jumps.
Give me examples where this isn't the case.
i am stuck in here!! someone please give me a shoove!
>Well meaning antagonist that was corrupted by his ideals/ambition
>Stupid "this magical bullshit is a drug allogory" although handled much more poorly
>Magic douchebag kid who learns to not be the douchebag and how magical he really is
>2nd banana who comes off as a prick looking for revenge, but later finds friendship in the MC and his group
The biggest difference besides the characters not being anywhere near as good is that the magical bullshit in Forze was SPACE where as in Double it was the vague MEMORIES OF EARTH.
They literally said at the end of this episode:
>It's time to tell you everything
I mean, if that doesn't seem like an episode dedicated to explaining shit, I don't know.
>All the other side characters have been important and done things
>There would be no reason to introduce her whatsoever
you clearly overestimate this show's writing. i'm ready to get disappointed
Jokes on you, I enjoyed them !
Man, this board is full of absolute dicks
Enjoy your virginity, fags
KLK confirmed 200% dead, we just have to wait for Tyrone and Rog to confirm it.
>MEMORIES OF EARTH.
...memories of the Earth are the source of power in a show, really?
Yeah it is in all likelihood just a passing joke considering that in the greater context it is obvious that Ryuuko was talking specifically about their Kamuis and not all friends.
I thought they were just too lazy to animate Mako again so they left her with that face.
>they don't agree with my opinion!
>waaaaah they're all dicks!
Laughed my ass off at nudist parts.
>Gun holsters in the crotch area
Why do you guys like this but don't like Fairy tail. They are basically the same. They both use the power of friendship to win. There is revenge plot in both anime. Hot headed protagonist. Odd best friend. The fight scene in both are horrible. Wow, they are really similar.
Yeah, which admittedly, gave them a huge variety of enemy monsters. I mean, I haven't seen another Toku have a enemy based on the Nazca lines.
>Nudist Beach people haven't been important
>Devas haven't done thigns and been important
>Nui hasn't done things and been important
>Mako and family haven't done things and been important
Every actual side character that wasn't a one-off has been important to the show in some way. They've given Ragyo way too much screen time and mystique for them to just not do anything with her. Also they literally spell it out for you that she plans to betray Satsuki and vice versa. She's obviously important.
The wording they used in japanese means "combat ability". It all depends on whether they have means to replenish their ranks and resources faster than Kiryuin but yeah, they are apparently out cold for now.
I love Fairy Tail, and you have to be one of the biggest retards on the planet to equate the two.
Next you'll compare it to Samurai Champloo or One PIece.
>takarada zaibatsu fighting the opression
>funding the guerilla fighters
>even the crablord fought as well and sacraficed his anal virginity for his town
>still proud after the defeat
Takarada's own series when
they weren't a threatening force at full strength so it's not like recovering is going to even matter.
You're a cockroach then because only a cockroach can enjoy shit.
He was basically right about everything. He just had the misfortune of living in a retarded world where clothes are magical.
RIP The true KLK hero.
>only a cockroach can enjoy shit
Actually...many animal life on this earth are drawn to the scents and compositions of fecal matter, but not cockroaches at all.
But one piece and samurai champloo is different. One piece is shit while samurai champloo is not.
One piece art is shit while samurai champloo art is not.
The one anime character that would be better off living in the real world
That looks fucking retarded.
KlK is like the wolf who cried COOL except there is no cool.
It's not completely devoid of quality and you can see that some passion went into it but 15 episodes in and there is no reason to care about anything in it, plot-wise, animation-wise or any areas in particular
Good, then please leave.
We don't know the details of the Kamui like Satsuki does. She knows that they and life fiber are exactly in her own words.
-Satsuki and Junketsu don't synchronize
-Senketsu only has one eye
There could be more details that are important.
>the wolf who cried COOL
what the fuck
And Mr. Satan.
>Train forever to be strongest human alive.
>Faggot with a monkey tail and space aliens take over.
So you agree that KLK is shit and you only corrected me because you don't want me to shame myself. Thank you.
Goddamn I love this, it just keeps getting better and better. Monday preview WHEN!?
all dat CGI dosh
I don't want you to shame yourself because you'd be wrong. If he were a cockroach, KLK could be virtually anything but shit. And if KLK is shit, he isn't a cockroach at all. So you'll have to rephrase your statement before I can make a proper judgement.
Maybe KLK is a delicious prime rib dinner slid next to the wall. He'd love it as a roach.
>the wolf who cried COOL
>semen and blood
So what was the fucking point of Senketsu being destroyed by Nui?
I'm a little disappointed that they didn't fully animate Ryuuko punching Satsuki in the face. It seems like something you'd want to have a lot of gravity behind it.
Like a nice, big, ten second WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAM that rearranges her face for a second.
It was less than I expected, but still set up quite a bit. Fight scene was good, punch was good, new uniforms were fucking goat.
It destroyed the Nudist Beacho's base and was enough to completely outmaneuver Senketsu Shippu and give Satsuki-sama air superiority.
That Ryuuko is too trusting and this is what happens. It would be dumb if they dragged it out.
Same thing happens this episode. Ryuuko gives Satsuki back her sword after she says for students to stand down, but Nonon blows up Nudisto beach base and Satsuki applauded her for doing so.
I wanted it to be like the face punches in Gurren Lagann (You know those iconic "LET ME SEE YOU GRIT THOSE TEETH!" punches where the person's entire face caves in and they go flying across the room).
To show you that Nui will really kill Ryuuko if she has her way and not just rape her until she's a mindbroken mess like most of us were hoping.
What if Takarada was a girl?
The bamboo scene still happens
Imagine all the butthurt for SJWs
How will Gamagoori fit inside Mako?
OH, and on a equally serious notion that the only way to kill Senketsu is to destroy his eye.
A good example of show and not tell.
He's literally wearing no clothes.
i want to ruffle his hair, /a/....
Colin will always be my favorite CO.
DoR never happened.
I genuinely want him to win.
I'm I the only one that get's tired of the OST? I mean it's good and all but the usage of the same fucking cues for the same fucking characters even if it's just for ten seconds got pretty tiring since last episode.
>Trigger in charge of making likable and interesting characters and then fucking them over and kicking them off the show forever
Monkey x Monkey OTP
He's done nothing wrong so far, expect grin a lot and be greedy. Meanwhile, Shitsuki wrecked half of the country because she believes in magical clothes.
There are remixes and new songs in 15, which is part of why I like it.
I really hope they don't pull Satsuki being an anti-hero. That would bum me out.
I want Dotonbori Robo MKII.
I want it to happen.
There's a second OST coming and has been confirmed for a while.
You know they're going to.
But I don't WANNNNNNNNNNT IT TO BE LIKE THAAAT Boo Hoo Hoo~
I feel the same way. But it's going to happen.
Best Pairing coming through
Again, Trigger said that Ryuuko and Satsuki were both the heroines of the show.
I really need an episode that focuses on Satsuki with Ryuuko as secondary
Fuck this gay Earth.
I like KlKprediction threads because they're wrong, but in a fun way.
>repiecing senketsu over the next half!
>nudist beach base is a literal beach!
>X is the traitor!
>Megane is love interest!
Even my predictions are mostly false.
Mako will 150% die for sure next episode. I'm 217% positive.
She already died this episode.
On the inside
Episode was amazing, but HS/CR had terrible subs this week.
>relying on astrology to prove that your OTP is canon
You've hit rock bottom.
I ship them too.
Speculah is fun.
I don't understand people who put off watching anime to watch it all at once after it finishes unless it was based on something.
>Takarada will be a serious counter to Satsuki and REVOCS and will be the morally ambigous anti-villain support Ryuko and Sensei's resistance
I wish this one was true
Yeah, coming on here and hashing it out with /a/ is always a blast.
we were so close, anon...
There are some shows I probably never would have finished if the /a/ threads weren't so much fun.
I love these themes even if they meant jack shit, like Gamagoori's stuff being based on hinduism
Kinda looks like histones.
Wasn't that the last two episodes? And a less extent, Monkey's episode followed Satsuki more than it did Ryuuko.
Satsuki was barely in 14. They did share 15 pretty well though.
I think I meant 13 then. I'm not even sure. My memory is terrible.
No one commenting on satsuki and ryuuko inner locking fingers hand hold?
That OTP was confirmed in episode one. There is no point even commentating on it.
This is a blue board, we don't do lewd stuff here.
yeah that was hot
I want to protect that ..whatever that is.
Also, does anyone have a stitch of this? I seem to remember it being a panning shot.
Was it rape?
They realized they can't write for shit
>implying he would not tap her if he could brawl her down
As long as they didn't lose their way
Second half is 16 onward, it also has new OP and ED
Which is why this ep lacked OP and ED to finalize the ending of the first half.
Writer said it has more hot blooded drama than TTGL. It was also said that the first half was supposed to have a lot of comedy while the second half is a roller coaster that's bad for your heart as it draws to its end.
This part was the worst. The quality was out of control the entire episode.
Looked like the cheapest one yet.
What is this weird obsession with money that /a/ has? It's a cartoon.
>The big deal is that's the end of the first half and the second half is supposed to have more hot blooded drama than TTGL according to the writer.
>holy fucking shit lol. no
theres more hotblood in say, episode 8 of TTGL than ths show will ever have
Yeah, I'm looking through screencaps now and there are parts when it looks amazing and then we have smudge overuse and chins
>The quality was out of control the entire episode
no it wasn´t
go be homo somewhere else
>Implying you know the future
>Implying you know better than the writer of TTGL himself
>This is actually probably better animated than TTGL if you compare budgets
how fucking retarded can you get
>its animated better, but it isnt because it has no budget but if it did it would be better.
and the next shitposter bites
But you haven't seen any of the second cour, anon.
What could have possibly been more hotblooded about Ryuuko's confrontation with Nui? It literally featured hot blood spraying everywhere and a mutation into a raging monster due to too much hotbloodedness.
yeah I have to say it's quite a letdown in that regard
I had high hopes because ryuuko started out as a badass delinquent but she's turned into a real softy.
Wow, you didn't understand the comparison even though it was spelled out for you in the post? You're genuinely stupid.
Anon said they did more with less compared to Gainax's budget which is probably true. Or do you still not grasp it?
A cartoon can still look good. KlK itself has shown that. If you are denying that this episode looked cheap as fuck then you are delusional.
The only good bits were the backgrounds. The characters and animation looked like dogshit through most of it. I think the episode's budget went on Monkey's new uniform reveal.
can you fucking read you retard? It says "in the second half"
Takarada found out about his fate and withdrew the funding
Denial or delusions, you pick.
So what's with IRC's obsession with this show?
Not even paranoid, there's clearly a reason why every poll we have shows an overwhelming liking towards KlK despite all the shitposting it gets.
I can tell you're an idiot from how you type but damn you just made yourself look stupid.
Compare total frames between shows and their respective budgets is what they said essentially. You've never heard of this comparison before?
DO YOU EVEN ANIME?
I'm saying I don't care a bit about the budget. If it was just static frames with waggling mouths but had a good plot, shit wouldn't matter. Why are you being so precious about the amount of money spent on your entertainment?
I pick that you are a shitposting faggot
Hating on not popular things will not give you as much replies as hating on the oposite.
they always pick the show that has the potential to be popular on /a/, be it KLK or some other anime
I'm trying to find the episode costs right now.
But KlK's budget is about the same as Jormungand was and it's animated a lot better than Jormungand
uh. lets see. episode 8 of ttgl?
Really? I was thinking of maybe watching that some day but that sounds awful.
Pointing that an episode with loads of quality had loads of quality is not shitposting. Stop being so defensive.
Why are you being so defensive. All I said was that it looked cheap as fuck. I didn't call the show shit, I didn't say I was going to stop watching it or anything like that. I simply stated that it looked cheap.
Also it didn't really have a good plot because it was not a plot heavy episode.
The quality is good overall, but there were pretty bad moments in the last ep
episode 15 of ttgl.
fluid animation. no CGI shit, no smearing
episode 15 of KLK
a cgi fightscene
stillframes up the ass
recycled power up animations.
Guys what if Nonon dies?
there's an entire set of feats in dnd based around this. You just make flashy movements and intimidate everyone within 30 feet.
If you enjoyed Black Lagoon you should watch it.
Anime wasn't saved again but surely next week
and you know how much both KLK and TTGL's budgets were now?
please enlighten me
more like Chin la Chin amirightguise
please stop it with this shitty meme already
...you really are stupid.
Compare frames with budgets. KlK will have more frames of animation and effort put in than TTGL if you compare budgets.
Since you don't seem to grasp it...
A does 500 drawings for 5,000 dollars
B does 340 drawings for 2,500 dollars
Production costs are out you know
Why is she so perfect, /a/?
youre still avoiding the question
what was this episodes framecount?
what was this episodes budget?
whats was TTGL episode 15's budget?
that had 22k frames
go ahead, answer the question in my post.
no matter which way you try to cut it, KLK has shithouse animation. the mistake you made was trying to worm your way around and say pound for pound that it was animated better than TTGL.
It has more frames of animation per dollar than TTGL.
He's right though in all likelihood. Trigger is just getting its legs unlike Gainax (who've since lost their legs) and you seem to be a kid that experience TTGL as his first super robo. Relax, you don't present yourself well.
>Bad for your heart
>Senketsu ded (again)
I wouldn't be able to handle it!
combination of her uniform and voice.
KlK? More like The exploits of Mary Sue Hitler: The Anime.
I tried to find the worst bits of quality but realised it was the pure lack of animation that made it look so bad.
It was just all still frames and hovering characters.
It's really saying something when a CGI fight is the best looking thing of an episode.
I'm pretty sure satsuki isn't genociding anyone.
TTGL had the budget of a 50 episode series.
KlK most definitely doesn't have the budget of a two cour series. You gotta be blind to think otherwise.
Is she not why you are here?
Sensei looks kinda like Kamina in that shot
That is not a good sign
>Sensei confirmed ded soon
Face it, he's just here to explain shit to Ryuuko one last time in 16 before being brutally impaled from behind by Nui right in front of Ryuuko's face.
No, I'm here to see her get the humiliating defeat she deserves.
Well peopl have been making connections the entire time, but you are right, he looks exactly like Kamina there.
>More frames of animation per dollar than TTGL
You do know that half of the episode is CGI right?
TTGL has more frames of animation per dollar if you get rid of the CGI.
In her infinite grace she forgives one such as you.
Fair enough, I was reading implications where there were none. Disregard me I suck cocks.
>Implying that isn't the best shot of Mako in a while
unless you love handjobs that is.
>half of the episode is CGI right
Because every episode has had CGI, right? And because CGI doesn't cost money, right?
Cut and paste is not animation.
*unzips 10inch dick
It's budgeting that shows how strapped for cash they are.
It cost less than real animation faggot.
Just a quick poll, is anyone on here actually so stupid to honestly think that Satsuki is a Mary Sue? I'm curious.
No, it can cost a lot more actually. It's price varies, but it's a fact that it costs faaaar more than 2D animation at the high end of the spectrum.
CGI people have ridiculous salaries compared to traditional animation.
>is anyone on here actually so stupid to [whatever]
The answer is always yes.
>what are action shots and stylised fighting
There were plenty of QUALITY moments in that episode but you didn't even find them. How retarded can one anon get?
>Just a quick poll, is anyone on here actually so stupid to honestly think that Satsuki is not a Mary Sue? I'm curious.
But here >>100833700 said they put more effort in than TTGL. Budgeting is not effort.
>Why is one of the heroes of the show winning, I'm so confused!
It's a mystery.
Please explain to me why she isn't.
All of the shots but the kamui tornado are shots of them standing still doing that weird looking animation where they don't actually animate, just a cut out of their body kinda moves in one direction.
Do you have tunnel vision or are you just stupid?
Also feel free to post the other quality shots.
Satsuki-sama would be a Mary Sue if the author of KLK was female, KLK was a fan-fiction and Satsuki was added halfway into the story and had the instant effect of all of the characters falling in love with her.
Satsuki isn't a self-insert. NO-ONE is meant to project onto her, let alone the author. She's a major antagonist counterpart to the hero, who is set up to later join said hero.
The only things at all Mary Sueish about her is that she is A. Female and B. Is good at stuff.
Because that term doesn't mean "someone I don't like who wins"
Yes, it is. It's being done very well.
All those heel snaps, that Satsuki walking through the smoke, those were good uses of resources they already had. They're doing that so that they can give you good action sequences.
All those still background artists shots are for budget as well but they look absolutely wonderful.
>at the high end of the spectrum.
and thats where your argument fails.
were talking KLK here, not Fate/zero
But why are you assuming I called her a Mary Sue because of that and not as a result of how she's presented in the series?
How are you sure that I would not call the same to characters that I don't "dislike"?
How is she not
>The only people who hate her are her enemies
>She never really loses anything
>even when she "loses" she actually wins
>Loved immensely by her own side
>Overpowered as fuck
>Almost no character flaws
>Any flaws she has are glazed over because she's trigger's waifu
She'll probably become the fucking hero in the next episode, and we're supposed to forget all the attrocious shit she did because "She's a good guy now lol"
That's where the argument holds water.
They've obviously strapped for cash if they're using CGI to smooth things out.
Seriously though, this show is done by a very young studio that's just getting started. They're not coming off of millions from pre-orders like F/Z did. They're not backed by the funding of something that's been around for decades.
TTGL had an enormous and ridiculous budget. KlK is the opposite. Stop your stupid fanboying already.
> but they look absolutely wonderful.
are KLK fans really this delusional?
even TTGL had KLK beat in spades with its exceedingly few stylized stillframe shots see pic related
You've been called out for the troll you are, time to stop.
Please stop that if you want to be taken seriously.
ive asked like 5 times in this thread, still no answer form you desperate fanboys
what is KLK's budget?
what was TTGL's budget?
untill you answer both questions, youre doing nothing but foaming at the mouth trying to defend shit.
>p.p.p.please stop youre hurting ma feelings.
This guy does not represent us, TTGL fans do not accept him among us. Repeat, we disavow this faggot.
>yfw she becomes a good guy as a result of Gama being murdered by REVOCS causing her to lose control and get brought back from the brink by Ryuuko
Kid, do the research yourself.
You're the one being such an asshole about it.
The post you replied to agrees with you though.
This guy does not represent us, KLK fans do not accept him among us. Repeat, we disavow this faggot.
>cant prove it
>doesnt understand the meaning of burden of proof for a baseless claim hes made
you fucking dumbass.
you cant prove the shit you spout, thats why you try avoiding the question. typical triggerniggers
>Gurren-Lagann is also famous for its ridiculously high budget, which is frequently a source of many jokes among Anonymous
How can you not know this? You're a shitty TTGL fan
Yeah. What is basically the last shot of a very high budget anime looks good. Is that really a surprise especially when you're comparing it to an anime from a young studio with no money?
stop trolling already you retard, you know exactly that nobody knows how much budget these series had and try to turn this into an argument for your convenience
You're so desperate
Not that dude, but you're using /v/ arguments and you can't even use google. Stop making yourself so obvious of a shitposter. Try being a little less obvious.
But you still cant tell me what TTGL's budget was
without both facts, you simply cannot go spouting shit saying KLK is animated better dollar for dollar.
keep avoiding the question, thats 6 times and counting noiw
Meant to reply to this
He's not a real TTGL fan, you can tell just from how he's behaving.
>what is burden of proof.
fuck of IRC shitbag
What is google? It's easy and right at your fingertips. This isn't fucking high school debate club where you can't look it up in 5 seconds.
so, you make a claim saying KLK is animated better dollar for dollar, then go ahead and admit that you know neither of either shows budget, therefore you made a completely bullshit claim youve been called out on.
I am not that anon you fucking autist
>i cant prove what im claiming, ill ask him to.
protip. you cant find info out on either, it doesnt exist.
prove me wrong. you cant
TTGL had a budget of a 50 episode series, this has been confirmed in various ways. Go search around for links outside this thread yourself, that's your job. I was there to read it back when it was airing, kid. I read about how they were in trouble when they were told how many episodes they had and the people providing the cash wanted to know why the episode count was so low and what the hell they were doing with the money.
Trigger has no moneycow feeding them. This shit is obvious.
>caring if anyone takes you seriously on /a/ of all places. Giving our Student Council President her proper honorific is just a fun joke. Chill the fook oot.
how about one from episode 3 instead?
>Asks someone to provide the private budget for an animated series in Japan
>Basically saying "You have no evidence and I am completely correct unless you can provide something that is literally impossible to provide"
>Proceeds to act like a smug dick about it afterward
You do understand that there is a considerable amount of evidence in the way of comments from company representatives and the fact that it's a new studio doing their first ever series right?
I'm actually starting to think that this guy is actually for real since he keeps acting like he's talking to one person. I think he might not actually be IRC shitposting and might actually just be a retarded person. It's actually quite funny.
Protip for you. You're "arguing" with about 3-4 people. Also if you don't have basic knowledge to know that KLK is the first show from a new studio with no backing=no budget and that it's widely known that TTGL had a huge budget=big budget then you are either new to /a/ and anime in general or an actual retarded person.
>TTGL had a budget of a 50 episode series
>but i cant prove it
jesus christ you triggerniggers are pathetic.
protip, when you make a claim, its up to you to prove it, not to beg the other person to. basic debating 101 kiddo. try again
KLK is backed by aniplex you turbonerd
yet you use the exact same words in your posts
TTGL HAD BIG BUDGET
BUDGET OF 50 EP SERIES
I HAVE NO PROOF
If you're not from there you need to go there.
But for how much?
Being a large studio doesn't mean they 're dishing out the big bucks.
So shitposter kun, does it make you upset that KLK is a successful anime and Trigger will continue to find work?
youre backed by 2 massive companies.
ill pull a you and respond accordingly
BACKED BY KADOKAWA AND ANIPLEX=BIG BUDGET
this information is easy to find, use google kid, i was there when KLK aired and all the sponsors were wondering why the episode count was so low
yeah about that.
>yet you use the exact same words in your posts
Wow. You really think this. Sorry that we're not all retarded and think TTGL's and KlK's budget's were even close. You do know one is from a big name studio that had a lot of money and the other is from a brand new studio and it's their first actual series, right? This alone proves that TTGL had a way bigger budget that KlK unless you're retarded and think that a new studio with no funding has anywhere near the same budget as a big name studio with multiple titles under it's belt.
Because they're facts people know from watching the series when it aired like many of /a/ did and they get spouted in our TTGL threads.
But anyone can tell you're an asshole willing to lie from all your posts. Where as the rest of us aren't lying. You really need to do something with your life and attitude, look how you're behaving.
That has nothing to do with anything. Magi is ShogakukanXAniplex and it has zero budget.
HA! You do not know shit about this stuff do you? Aniplex didn't contribute towards the animation of this series, they're a distributor you retard! They pay for advertising and the production of BD disks, toys and such, this is clearly evidenced by the fact that they picked the anime up AFTER the animation stage was finished. The show was in post production when they got in on the deal.
Now that I have definitively proven that you do in fact lack a brain I would ask you to kindly fuck off. But I know you won't
You come off as a real shitty person, you know that?
Gurren-Lagann was funded by Konami and Aniplex.
>He actually think KLK isn't a successful anime
>He doesn't know the difference between between some companies backing a studio to get their anime out there and a gigantic studio who can fund a huge budget anime by themselves
Jesus man. It's really hard to tell if you're shitposting or if you're actually just a very angry autistic person.
An anime needs to have about 2.5k sales average to be successful.
The first Blu-ray / dvd of KlK in its combined sales is over 10k.
It is absolutely a successful project.
yeah. shows how much you actually know. christ.
>Because they're facts people know from watching the series when it aired like many of /a/ did and they get spouted in our TTGL threads.
>still no proof.
yet again, proof, or youre talking shit. still waiting.
>look how you're behaving.
oh god, you arent crying are you?
>They pay for advertising and the production of BD disks
which trigger doenst need to worry about, giving them more money to animate. thats what a distributor is for dumb fuck. aniplex just happens to be fucking huge.
keep ignoring the facts
>You come off as a real shitty person, you know that?
are you crying too? its like a triggernigger waterfall in here, let me grab an umbrella
Trigger can anime well. see LWA.
unfortunately, they completely dropped the ball with KLK, youre just to devastated to admit it
Probably the faggot that claimed on /v/, no anime or video game character is stronger then Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.
talks about series avergaes before the series has even released all its volumes.
shit, it barely outsold NNB if i recall correctly
Oh and yes, I am aware that Aniplex does in fact fund the production and animation of SOME of the series they pick up, KLK is NOT one of those. I mean it, check it out if you don't believe me, they are a distributor and publisher in this deal, not a producer.
>Trigger can anime well. see LWA.
>unfortunately, they completely dropped the ball with KLK, youre just to devastated to admit it
This is a budgeting issue you dumbass.
LWA was an OVA sponsored by the government with an enormous budget.
>talks about series avergaes before the series has even released all its volumes.
You can usually make a good guess after the first volume
>shit, it barely outsold this other anime that sold really well
demonbane, tenchi, etc blah blah
>trigger has no financial backing with KLK i swear guys
KLK has far more Pixiv results than TTGL
disregarding the actual quality of the 2 shows for a moment, NNB was a very niche 1 cour SOL by a formerly hated studio (see kokor connect incident(
KLK was a 2 cour hyped by way to many drones and had the expectations of meeting or exceeding TTGL.
yet the sales were practically the same
>yeah. shows how much you actually know. christ.
Inferno Cop wasn't a fucking full fledged series you dumb fuck. LWA was an OVA. Both of these did not require the time or money that KlK do.
>>Because they're facts people know from watching the series when it aired like many of /a/ did and they get spouted in our TTGL threads.
Yeah that's not me.
>look how you're behaving
Still not me.
>>They pay for advertising and the production of BD disks
Still. Not. Me.
>You come off as a real shitty person, you know that?
>unfortunately, they completely dropped the ball with KLK, youre just to devastated to admit it
Except then didn't. At all. And this is a very, very successful anime whether you like it or not. Much more so than LWA.
>trigger has no financial backing with KLK i swear guys
Trigger doesn't have a fraction of the budget they had for LWA.
>KLK was a 2 cour hyped by way to many drones and had the expectations of meeting or exceeding TTGL.
only on /a/ by TTGL autists and IRC drones
But that applies for almost every antagonist ever. You really don't understand the term, do you?
Satsuki isn't a self insert. That is the defining trait of a Mary Sue, and what makes all of the other traits so pathetic. A powerful dictator antagonist does not a Mary Sue make. She is an arrogant, self-righteous manipulative bitch; the reason why the Elite 4 love her is because she has already dominated them with her Resolve.
The one person she hasn't done this to yet is Ryuuko, the protagonist.
righto. some tard was posting the sales stats in the other thread, KLK aint doing very well.
first BD and DVD sold over 10k, this counts as successful if you like it or not
Except the first volume did very well.
We'll see the sales of the second volume after it releases. Pre-order numbers for the first volume are always much higher than later volumes.
the goddamn CM had the lines
"from imaishi, the producer of TTGL and..."
wasnt just /a/ pal.
NNB was niche. there was basically 0 hype surrounding it.
>One company backing production of a 2 cour series
TTGL was animated by Gainax, a large, successful animation studio in it's own right and funded in it's production by both Aniplex (Aniplex did production for this one) and Konami two other large, successful studios. The difference in funding would approximate to at least 3 times as much for TTGL as there has been for KLK, most likely considerably more than that. Are you grasping the numbers yet?
The first Blu-ray / dvd of KlK in its combined sales is over 10k buddy
>10k 1st volume
>therefore, 10k overall average
protip. preorders drop over volumes.
especially considering just how bad KLK got in in the second quarter
>can't even green text properly because he's so mad about an anime he doesn't like being popular and successful
>doesn't provide any proof of said "sales stats"
Sounds like you're contradicting your SHOW ME THE ACTUAL PROOF THOSE AREN'T FACTS "argument".
