So what's up with this guy at this point?

Thusfar, his role on the show has basically just been an exposition machine who informs Ryuko of the reasons whe she's special (while also seducing her).

But now that there's not much left for him to expose, do you think he'll have much of a purpose in Ryuko's story anymore?

Earlier in the series, the animation emphasized the seductive aspect of his exposition, showing his come-on's gradually becoming more forward, and a conflicted Ryuko finally drawing the line at the very last second. At first I thought this was expressing a sexual chemistry between the characters, but as the seductive nature has been de-emphasized it seems that's not the direction Trigger's going in.

You would.
>>
He's voiced by shin-ichiro miki.

Most of his characters die
>>
>>101275681
he is the best kill la kill
>>
>>101275681
He's Kamina, just 10 episodes late.
>>
It wouldn't make sense for him to die since no other character has any emotional attachment to him, so the impact would be lost. I hope he finally sways Ryuuko and they live the wonderful nudist live.
>>
His role is to make you question your sexuality
>>
I guess I just expected more from his character, then just a convenient exposition machine.

He'll probably just sit on the sidelines and maybe form a rivalry with one of the Devas or something
>>
Satsuki's father.

They aren't done with him; his past and Tsumugu's are still a mystery. Did you forget? Tsumugu said he owed him everything.
>>

plus the woman who was betrayed by clothing
>>
He shares some things in common with the Kiryuuins, namely eye shape/jawline/bioluminescence. 50/50 on whether that's coincidence or not, it's flimsy evidence by itself.

What's interesting though is that Ragyo has a room full of near identical suits to what Satsuki's dad was wearing in episode 3. Sensei wears that same suit in character reference art, and every other outfit in those reference sheets has already appeared in the show.

Or uncle

Kaiki didn't.
>>
>>101276028
Kisuke Urahara didn't.

...yet? But then again,he's a fucking shinigami so...

...well fuck,bad example.James from Team Rocket doesn't die.
>>
>>101282665
He blasts off again and again

Tsumugu and Kinue are the key characters of the next round of exposition. Who's the director of episode 17?
>>
I would listen to his exposition very carefully if you know what I mean
>>
>>101282665
Roy Mustang doesn't die
Tatsuma Sakamoto desn't die
Kurz Weber doesn't die
Takumi Fujiwara doesn't die
Deishuu Kaiki doesn't die
