I was going to make a snarky comment about scryed being new, and then I realized I watched the fansubs thirteen years ago.

Also Scryed threads pop up about once a month and are one of the few things I have never seen anon say something negative about. Of course by mentioning that someone is going to say something negative just to be contrary.

Yes he does.
>>
Not really... I can hardly see any similarities between both works.

Though I can see how some would try to argue they are comparable due to some very superficial and almost meaningless similarities, both works are rather different.

Kazuma and Ryuuko are both hot-headed (but Ryuuko isn't nearly hot-headed as Kazuma). Other than that, they're really different. Ryuuko started with her revenge thing and is now trying to understand what is going on, whereas Kazuma started as just some sort of mercenary, who fought with agents from the system whenever they messed with him or with innocent people, and then decided to bring it down when his friend was killed. Kazuma had this whole thing about living his life freely.

Satsuki and Ryuuho are even less similar than the former two, with both of them being born in rich, influential families (though Satsuki's family is far more powerful and influential than Ryuuho's). Furthermore, Ryuuho was just a worker for the system, who wanted to bring down order and peace to a lawless place. On the other hand, Satsuki, built her own thing to pursue her own plans (though, she is a member of COVERs, but apparently always plotting against it).

In terms of knowledge about the state of the world, Kazuma and Ryuuho were pretty much the same. In fact, their standing pretty much similar, since Ryuuho was just a worker for the system (and Kazuma was even asked once to join it, which he refused), and Kazuma was a misfit. Neither had much of a position of power.
On the other hand, Satsuki rules over Honnouji and clearly knows a fuckton more things than Ryuuko (and probably still does, to a lesser degree of course). Not to mention the first half of the anime involves Satsuki pretty much using Ryuuko for her own ends.

As for the rivalry... the thing Ryuuko and Satsuki have hardly feels as such, especially compared to Kazuma and Ryuuho who were always at each other's throats, even by the end when they had no reason to fight.

Also Scheris goes looking for Ryuhou who she is even more obsessed with than in the anime, and ends up getting captured and turned into a mind broken sex slave. When Ryuhou finally finds her and she has a chance of being resuced by the man she loves more than her own life, he doesn't recognize her shrugs his shoulders and walks off leaving ehr to her fate.

>>101362562
I haven't watch the anime in 10 years or so, but I don't recall him being a dick.
As far as I remember, he did his job to bring down order, and fought the people who were causing trouble. I don't recall him doing anything bad to anyone, and despite him being serious as fuck, I do remember he was a really good person.
When he realised what HOLY/HOLD was actually doing, he turned against them.

He was an insufferable spoiled little rich boy, that looked down on anyone that wasn't born with a silver spoon up their ass like him. Despite being rich handsome and educated he still finds an excuse to mope around like an emo bitch the entire series.

Plus he steals lolis. First Scheris when she was one, and then Kanami.

Fuck that guy

it's PSG trying to be s-CRY-ed.
>>
>>101363089
>First Scheris when she was one, and then Kanami.
He never stole Kanami. If anything, he stole Kazuma from Kanami, seeing that by the end they were old as fuck and were still fighting against enemy forces (not having returned to Kanami or Mimori).

>>101360560
He's just away going fast because no one else will.

No it wasn't. It was awful, right down to the character designs.

Kill la Kill has a much better cast of characters and a far superior overarching story that's not convoluted. Also, Kill la Kill takes itself nowhere as seriously.

s-CRY-ed is shit for grimdark 14 year old boys.

I don't really care. What I'm getting at is the dog flashing before his eyes made, what was supposed to be a dramatic scene, comical.

>>101371350
I enjoyed the show immensely with a recent rewatch (probably because of nostalgia) and like most things about the show but the scenes involving Minori got preachy and killed the flow of the anime. Did not help that she was sorta a bitch too. If Straight Cougar was not in the scene too I tended to skip them.

I was exaggerating and more referencing his work in the 00s. I do not have a problem with "Hirai" face either though, it is only noticeable because most other artists have a generic style or adhere to a studio's guidelines.

It brings back warm memories and glad feelings to know that there actually is a supportive following for s-CRY-ed.
When I got managed to see it there was far *far* less appreciation for it.

God do I love this series.


Also wrt OP, I had that feeling with the new KLK intro, but 1) Satsuki isn't a "rival" to Ryuko, she's just an obstacle. And 2) s-CRY-ed ended up with the two main characters begrudgingly working together, with both learning how life was like for the other. KLK has, and I can almost guarantee will not have, NONE OF THAT.
