Dat confident Elite Four in the background made this shot so amazing
Better Elite Four
They lost all their cred when they all lost to eyepatch 4v1 so easily.
They got better uniforms now though. 4vs1 they might barely stand a chance now.
>Were wearing MK prototype uniforms that were incomplete, fought separately and out of order and sync, and completely underestimated Ryuko and were not aware that her Kamui was eating their regalia's so it got even stronger with each win
Are you saying if you played Pokemon and instead of 1 elite four at a time they all bullrushed your anus, Gary included you wouldn't lose?
Keep in mind, you didn't grind before this and have pushed through the game via surplux of potions
Nonon always makes the best faces. All that smug.
I've watched this scene about 20 times already. Best declaration of war I've seen in a while.
>Ragyou really did die
>Nui really does get wrecked by the elite four
>Trigger was rusing the rusefags by making them believe they figured out the ruse when really that in itself WAS the ruse
I'm still not over how she holds sword.
Goddamn nonon is such a slut,
>implying she doesn't have the wrist and grip strength of a gorilla
What track of the ost was playing?
can you fucking shitbags please stop making KLK threads?
Will be funny in hindsight when they get taken within a couple of minutes.
The cinematography in this show is spectacular. I mean, that's what Gainax does best, but even by those standards it's great.
So if Ragyo really is kill who is the main enemy now?
how fucking big is gamagoori
it seems to vary greatly
that's a terrible joke
>holding Bakuzan in the wrongest way
What are you doing Sacchan
That's some Ogure Maiko-tier shit right there
Nui, Junketsu, Rei or Aikuro.
Leaning towards Rei since she's been ???? for the entire run.
Until Nui wipes them out.
Is dog having a seizure back there?
Dogs carpal tunnel must be killing him.
Pretty sure his "canon" size is like his is in serious scenes such as the toast. But him being as big as the scene/blocking requires is kind of his character.
You're a terrible joke.
Gamagoori is cute.
Please don't kill them Nui. Have mercy. At least don't kill Gama and Nonon
At least she is using more than 2 knuckles to do it
Gamagori is the only good one of them, I still want to see Nui fuck them up again though.
I dont think Nonon is evil if the rest of the Devas are not
I dunno, they're not that impressive.
Rather childish if you ask me.
Gama is not lawful good. Nonon is not evil. If anyone is chaotic neutral, it's Nui.
>That kind of party mix
Would never work in D&D
She shouldn't even be on that chart. Replace her with Junketsu, and replace Mako with Senketsu.
>in anything but the most black and white good vs evil fairy tale
I hope she doesn't just wreck them instantly. I want to see what she can really do, or at least see her put a little effort in.
Don't you ever get tired of your roleplaying bullshit? Why did I you have to walk all the way from MAL to /a/? Will I live to ever see a tripfag not being complete and pure cancer?
Put Nonon under Satsuki's carpet muncher instead.
I love Nonon, really is do. But her name is just so fucking stupid and annoying, seriously NONON?
Is like saying Nui didn't do anything wrong.
>not lawful good
He tried to save that kid who was being blackmailed in the flashback, that's pretty good
alignment is defined by gods in dnd. It's complete horseshit, but that's how it's done.
Satsuki is Law Good, Ryuko/Senketsu is Neutral good, Tsumugu is Chaos Good
Devas are Law Neutral, Mako is True Neutral, Aikuro is Chaos Neutral
Ragyo is Law Evil, Nui is Neutral Evil, Junketsu is Chaos Evil
As much as I love Gama,I won't delude myself into thinking he hasn't done thing that makes him cme across as a hypocrite.
You can say it was that "Satsuki corrupted him" all you want,but he's following her on his own accord.
Maybe I'm reading too much into this, but I feel like that's sort of a reference to Fist of the North Star, Raoh specifically.
Are we being serious? This was a poorly drawn scene.
how hold sword????
>implying Satsuki is evil
Kill yourself retard
Satsuki is basically female Raoh anyway
You realize that being an alignment doesn't mean you perfectly embody it all the time, right? Lawful Good is the best fit for him.
What's with Satsuki's dad?
Where is he? Is he dead? Did her mother kill him? I think he is the key beyond Satsuki's revenge plan.
But that's not current Gama.
Current Gama seems to be still a noble guy at his core,we can see he respects Mako and refused to fight Ryuko if was not in a proper way,but one can feel differences between ast!Gama and current!Gama.
Satsuki's eyes look fucking weird there.
I like how Nonon's uniform has gold plated her monkey skull and put blue LEDs in it.
This shot was cooler.
wow, i have never seen an alignment chart being so incredibly wrong before
I hope Ragyou fights in that thing
Not a single spot is wrong but thanks for showing us that you're a mouthbreather
The blue LEDs are so the uniform runs cooler
Gamagori belongs to the evil at worst in the neutral category, no "lawful good" would allow his master to backstab their own mother (literally) or hunt down ryuuko and mako because they actually care about freedom.
Mako is way too random to not be chaotic, and ryuuko too little to be chaotic
How is Dog neutral? He clearly has an agenda and even hacked huge companies before just for the evulz.
Monkey likes fighting too much and being an evil henchman than to not be evil
Ragyo is not lawful at all, she clearly does not care about laws/rules that other people created and only does whatever she thinks is correct, she belongs more to the neutral chart
and Nonon is one of the least evil ones, as she is only doing all of this for her love/admiration of Satsuki as a person not as a dictator
now Nui, that one is spoton
>"All according to Kefkaku."
Aide from Nonon being evil, I approve. Nonon isn't Neutral Evil, she's Neutral Satsuki
I said I already knew you were a mouthbreather, no need to show in great detail just how retarded you are.
>Translator's Note: Kefkaku means "TORCH EVERYTHING"
Did anyone actually like Ragyo's new look?
I mean, I kind of disliked it at first, but it really makes her look over the top evil. Especially with all the blood leaking from her face and whatnot.
So far people theorize that Mikisugi is her father. Biggest evidence is he and Satsuki share the same exact pupils. Smaller stuff being his suit in the character art, and that he, Satsuki, and Ragyo are the only three characters with a constant "light" gag
All these chumps were pummeled cheerfully, jauntily, and utterly one-sidedly with NUs and NFE pokes.
I want to see Nonon wreck Nui then Gagamori will break her with his whip dick.
Dog and monkey will matsurbate in the corner.
He was also working alongside Isshin, a former REVOCS employee to combat Life Fibers.
He probably stopped drinking the Kool-Aid and realized that his crazy rainbow bitch wife needs to be stopped.
I personally want them to stay far away from Nui, but it doesn't look like that is going to happen. The only way they survive is if she just doesn't care enough to kill. Or she somehow takes over their uniforms.
I'd pummel Nonon cheerfully, jauntily, and utterly one-sidedly.
Light gag applies to every other NB officer but the rest of the stuff is worth thinking about.
If he is Satsuki's dad then he must be working with her since she had no "Father?! You're alive/working with the naked monkeys?!" type reaction towards him in 15 or 17.
That's a big one, not a small piece. Probably the best and only non-flimsy evidence the theory has going for it.
Well, her left hand is her 'bottom' hand when she grips it with two hands. She just took her top hand off.
One grips a katana with the hands a little further apart, than for a western type sword.
>anything but chaotic
It's pretty large because it's so out of place. He's the only character who's wearing an outfit we haven't seen him in. The rest of the characters in the book were in their standard attire.
But more importantly, her father's suit was identical to the Life Fiber ones. Furthermore, Satsuki acknowledged it.
>mfw you're right and I never even thought about this before
At least in the manga they were OP as shit for literally no reason. Lance was riding around destroying cities for shits and giggles.
wud /a/ gam a goori?
I'm pretty sure we are going to see Hououmaru fighting.
She's got rainbow glasses so she must have any fighting capacity.
In the manga, shit didn't suck.
He only has one size.
Bigger than you.
But it makes sense if she had a right-handed hold on the sword and then took her right hand off.
When I saw this, I suddenly felt Satsuki might no betray ragyou
One thing I noticed is that Rei did not make an appearance since Satsuki declared her rebellion...
She looks like one of those fucking demon things from late PSO Ep1/Early Ep2.
That's more like the Elite 26.
Nonon a shit. Sanageyama is best Deva.
>people think they still stand a chance against Nui with updated uniforms
Even if they covered the life fiber uniform's glaring weakness, they still don't have full compatibility with life fibers. Nui is practically a life fiber doll. Only way Nui would lose to them would be by plotshield
Inumuta is the key. He still has the data from the last time Nui was at the academy. If that data's insufficient, the other three can buy him time for further analysis. It'd be weird if Nui's data wasn't even taken under consideration when designing the new uniforms.
I jus noticed Monkey's blindfold is a different color. Too fucking cute.
His best attempt at a JoJo pose.
24. Kuja and Lance are on there twice.
I want to believe this.
>A fully awakened Senketsu
I want the ending to be Satsuki and Ryuko fighting and not giving a shit about anything else or anyone else around them, till there is nothing left. Something like the ending of S-cry-ed.
I'm still rooting for her father being the huge Life Fiber now. The suits it has been producing on its own look identical to the father's which could imply that it's just making its own favourite clothing.
Captcha: particularly skedoci
Yeah, that's probably what they were trying to do. By giving Satsuki the same empty eyes and not making her stand out, it makes it seem like all of them are Ragyou's servants.
This thing matches perfectly with my character ranking. I love the three good characters the most, like the three in the middle and dislike the three evils.
>2 eyes open with 2 scissor blades together
>rusing the ruse fags
>the preview shows Ragyou still up and healthy
>it'll be exactly like the Arkham fight in Devil May Cry 3
I TOLD ALL OF YOU THIS WOULD HAPPEN
>Including champions in picture of Elite Fours
Only their dicks have a spark of life, Aikuro has nipples glowing too and in episode 17 he did the full blown light show glow effect, same as the two Kiryuins.
Official list of people who will be kill
If Nui doesn't beat the devas soundly in half an episode I'll be equal parts annoyed and impressed. Given that
has been clearly defined. Unless they pull some rock paper scissors shit and it turns out rather than bruting it they have all these anti-nui tactics with their various powers working in unison.. then that would be cool and not impossibly stupid.
Yeah that's totally coming. I wouldn't bet on it happening but it wouldn't surprise me the least if it did. It could be Junkestu sacrifice ending from left field though
>Unless they pull some rock paper scissors shit and it turns out rather than bruting it they have all these anti-nui tactics with their various powers working in unison
>Sanageyama burst damage
>Inumuta handles tactics and status effects
I want them to, at the very least, provide a good distraction for Nui. It'll be boring if she just beats them all without a sweat.
You don't think Satsuki will be kill? She might be shaping up to be the true kamina stand in of the show.
Pay attention to the lyrics in the OST
>actually thinking people will die
by the end of the series there will be 1, maybe 2 deaths. if you actually expect anymore than that you're retarded
Satsuki is right handed and Ryuuko is left handed. FYI.
Satsuki's face had so much QUALITY this episode. Maybe you shouldn't reuse poorly drawn shots at the beginning and end of the episode Trigger.
I can see Nui and Ragyou dying on-screen while Houomaru standing/kneeling beside the latter's side and dying off-screen due to some sort of cataclysm happening around the surroundings.
It was obvious Satsuki was plotting against her mother since forever. However, I was surprised she did things this way.
With the exception of the Devas, the rest of her army is unable to fight (unless she's expecting them to overcome the Life Fibers and eventually join the fight).
I'm sure she should know Nui is extremely powerful. So, I'm wondering if she truly expects the Devas to be able to take her on.
Rei is also there, and though her power level hasn't been shown, I don't think it'd be far-fetched to assume she's really strong as well.
Then there's also Ragyou, who's also likely to be off the charts.
Did she really expect to be able to take on those 3 with her Devas? Hell, even if the rest of her army were able to fight... since 1 and 2 stars suck, they'd just be there waiting to get blown away or killed.
It also seems she expected Nudist Beach and Ryuuko to arrive, but even if she teams up with Ryuuko, the odds still seems to be considerably against them.
I don't think it'll be surprising to anyone when Satsuki, Ryuuko, the Devas and Nudist Beach all get their asses handed to them next episode.
Was it that obvious? I never noticed.
I don't think she ever expected the 1 and 2 stars to help fight against her mother and her closest subordinates directly. They'll probably be used to combat Ragyou's own army.
I think the point of betraying Ragyou at the stadium may have been to induce a sense of desperation in the students; that they either shape up and fight or get devoured by life fibers. Other traps may be in place as well, who knows.
Are you being sarcastic? Or did you really not notice that long ago.
I can understand that, but if she's expecting no one else to join the fight, but merely to overcome the Life Fibers, then how can they deal with Ragyou and Co.?
She'll fight? Clearly, she's confident enough that she can match her mother. Just see how things go instead of expecting them all to job.
It was either going to be this or some kind of heart-wrenching scene where she betrays her student council and sacrifices them, griffith-style to ragyou, which i was kinda hoping for, but this makes more sense.
Could Armstrong beat Gamagoori?
>all those characters defeated badly in the first arc
>they all die in the second
I would not approve of this
Armstrong can beat a looooot of people
Armstrong's determination and patriotism >>> Gamagoori's loyalty
of course, anything is possible with nanomachines if you aren't figured out
Armstrong a shit
He can only be defeated by the power of Japanese nationalism that has been folded a million times a thousand years ago.
>Clearly, she's confident enough that she can match her mother.
But that doesn't make much sense.
It's clear she was cautious enough around Nui. So, I think it'd be silly for her to expect to be able to match Ragyou, unless it turns out Ragyou is weaker than Nui and Satsuki knows it.
At this point it makes even less sense for her not to have cooperated with Nudist Beach to a degree, since both of them have the same goal, even if their means are different.
>Implying she won't get blown the fuck out by Uzu
Why is Nonon making that slutty look at Ragyo?
When is Nonon not being slutty?
>It's clear she was cautious enough around Nui.
Because she didn't want her to find out about her plans? She didn't show any indication of being wary of Nui's strength to the point of wanting to avoid a fight with her.
And on Nudist Beach; forget about that now. It's not relevant enough to discuss because there's nothing we can discuss except for the mystery of why she crushed their base. It'll either get explained or it won't. Just forget about it now.
What, the Ruins and Vr Temple dark mobs? Ultimate mode or normal mode?
I've already seen this plot already, and it was shit.
Gama is lawful good. Totally.
current Gama follows Satsuki. Who is trying to save humanity
I just noticed that this drawing that monkey's director posted in his twitter looks like him losing his MKIII I though it was one of the first two regalias at first but then I realized the waist is too narrow to be MK1 or 2
>looks like him losing his MKIII
>17 episodes in
>Only one character has been killed
I highly doubt it m8
Episodes 16+ are confirmed to be darker. So far we've had rape, and Ragyo being hurt more than anyone else in the show so far who didn't die.
> At this point it makes even less sense for her not to have cooperated with Nudist Beach to a degree
She just didn't give a fuck about them and rightfully so, seeing how easily they were defeated. Destroying their base was also necessary for her to finally lure Ragyo into Honnouji academy and earning her trust.
Do you mean the guy from the first ep or Isshin?
We don't even know if the guy from the first ep was actually dead.
>So far we've had rape
Nonon is Neutral Smug
So why was Tsumugu able to hear Senketsu?
Ryuuko's sister dying confirmed
>Monkey will be the first one to lose to Nui
This is actually exactly the same as my version, except switch Mako and Ryuuko.
Yes. Don't trot out your pretentious chakra nonsense again because no one is buying it.
she seemed like she enjoyed it.
It wasnt rape,satsuki allowed it to happen and had no problem with it afterwards
Probably not uncle. He looks too young to be Isshin's brother. Maybe his nephew?
He's her uncle from her mother's side.
He was defeated by a African man who had a japanese sword that originaly belonged to a brazilian man and was given to him by a Robot dog made by a german.
HIS WEAKNESS WAS MULTICULTIRALISM!
I think he's saying Ryuuko is Isshin and Kinue's child, making Tsumugu her uncle.
>Maybe his nephew?
Are you fucking serious?
Okay, let me give you a hint: Who is Kinue?
Why is Nonon picking her nose?
Nouh mein gott
She's the traitor. When Satsuki wakes up after the battle she's going to see Nonon bouncing on Ragyo's life fiber penis.
Why did Ragyou only talk to Nonon and Inumuta? Is she not familiar with Gama and Uzu?
Wait a minute, whose the fifth person in that picture? In the next flashback we see Aikuro, Isshin, and Tsumugu looking in on the experiment, but there's some glasses man there.
>implying Tsumugu would kill his beloved imouto's daughter without hesitation
probably just a random nudist beach scientist that helped create senketsu. don't look into it to much.
Probably just a background character.
Lelouch has been posting here since at least 2009. You should have seen his faggotry back when Angel Beats was airing. He even used to avatar fag. Even still, there was far more faggotry everywhere back when there were no mods.
Which sub group does everyone use?
>There are people who thiink Nonon isn't evil
It's missing your screams transfer student, also hogging the sandbox is downright vile.
Nonon has been Satsuki's friend since they were little, and Inumuta tried to hack Revocs, so they are easily recognized by Ragyou. As far as we know, she knows little about the other two other than they are trusted underlings of Satsuki.
The fact that Nui didn't even bat an eye at their little rebellion happening makes me think they're about to get their shit wrecked.
Gamagori was full aware of Satsuki's plans from the beginning apparently so he probably never bothered to familiarize himself with Ragyo
Monkey was the last to join them and his only purpose for being there is to fight strong people so I don't see why he would familiarize with her either
Nonon is Satsuki's childhood friend so obvious she met her at some point and Inu would have talked to her at least once in order to collect data on Revocs
She was using a sexual euphemism when talking to Nonon and made Dog go back down. She clearly did it to show him how impotent he was, like the villains in NTR doujins often do.
Ehh her words made it seem like she wasn't aware what Satsuki was planning.
Ah, that makes sense. Although, I wonder if those two (Uzu and Gama) have a more important role to do other than being lackeys. I mean, the mere fact that Ragyou acknowledged Inu and Nonon was a pretty good indication that they are at least a bit more important.
Also, I wonder when the next episode directed by Daizen (MonkeyDirector) will be?
>You realize that being an alignment doesn't mean you perfectly embody it all the time, right? Lawful Good is the best fit for him.
No fuck you, your alignment shifts to lawful evil and you lose a level.
>Still no Devas as Pokemon Elite four
>Still no Champion Satsuki
>Still no Trainer Ryuuko
Looks like I know what to request in the draw thread.
Sanageyama is going to lose his uniform/die, calling it.
Why is his life so fucking miserable?
>Blade Regalia MK III lost
Whelp, time to speculate what Mk IV looks like.
Why does monkey have a smug face?
Man, I'm starting to feel sorry for the guy.
I sure everyone agrees there is a huge red flag raised just for Mako
>Mako is stabbed by nui
So they will be facing off against nui huh. I hope they put up a decent fight against her.
I'd rather see Satsuki throw him out of the Devas because he's a losing faggot.
Fuck. He's my favorite character though.
Nui days are outnumbered.
Trigger is in love woth Mako, they'll never kill her.
>Ehh her words made it seem like she wasn't aware what Satsuki was planning.
That doesn't really make a difference to his point.
He's always had a smug face, even when he lost to Nui.
I doubt Nui gives a shit either way.
>Mako's family in danger
Revocs is fucked
What if: all of this is a ruse of both mother and daughter to defeat nudist beach and matoi at once
Now that her plans is going full ahead I am guessing she will discard anything that may get in her way
He's mellowed out a ton. All the really infamous tripfags either left, are on a pemaban list, or gave up their old ways.
I am legitimately terrified of Mako, something about the ending credits now being all her, not to mention all the glitch effects and heavy dissonance on her track on the soundtrack give me shivers every time. I really hope they do something crazy involving her.
It does if you interpret it as though he was saying Nui and Co planned for it.
Words lie anon
I'm almost positive they will
this is why I dont praise her
Remember when Ryuuko found all the students in the halls that were attacked by brooms? Guess who was the only one cleaning the bathrooms that day.
How can you be terrified of this?
Lady Gaga was the best part of this episode.
Of course not. Satsukifags are full of shit and can't accept how full of flaws she is
Ouch, Ragyo didn't look THAT bad
Probably becuase of the things that might happen to her
Filteers how do they work??
Poor Maiko, they cheated.
Im sure there is more to her
>Whelp, time to speculate what Mk IV looks like.
Iori probably won't even bother to double stitch it or give it a gold trimming.
It will be made with 30% life fibers and 70% burlap.
''Before you, the only friends I had were in my head'' In hindsight, this quote gives me chills.
The IDOLA bosses, I suppose. They're pretty good in the TASTE THE RAINBOW department.
Why can she wear Senketsu "normally" and not go crazy with life fibers?
I may hate her a lot but she's kinda hot
I hate special snowflakes like Ryuuko, to be honest.
It's like Dog just didn't know what do with his hands in this picture.
Seriously what the fuck is he doing? Is he experiencing carpel tunnel?
My prediction for episode 18:
>Satsuki had the people removed from the stadium somehow
>the spools of thread are pure life fiber
>she throws them into the blood that rained from her and they form a mob of berserk life fiber monsters
>Satsuki fights valiantly but is limited by the way she overrides Junketsu
>Nui taunts her all the way
>she snaps and goes full berserk
>the Devas try to Hallelujah her back to her senses
>she just slaps their shit
>Ryuuko steps in knowing what she has to do
>takes a vicious beating from Satsuki to get her to return to her senses
>Why can she wear Senketsu "normally"
She can't, he won't move for her.
>and not go crazy with life fibers?
Senketsu isn't normal life fibers.
Not going to happen. Ryuuko taking a beating from Mako worked because Mako was holding back and actually wanted Ryuuko to beat her. In the berserk stage, you fight until you die.
If Mako hadn't intervened when she did, Ryuuko wouldn't have calmed down, she would have died
This is a good theory.
However, I wonder why Ryuuko's depowered in the preview.
Maybe she did it as an ultimatum to make Berserk Satsuki stop when all else failed?
Man, no Mako slapping and clingy hugging? Maybe that's the way to fix it?
and then Satsuki snaps out of it and says she hasn't had a hug in a over decade
I'm implying that Ryuuko is the one person who can calm Satsuki down.
Looks to me like it's just another reused pasted pose. Imagine him being in his old probe regular. His fingers looks like he's typing on his body.
Because Senketsu is not an asshole.
Ryuuko is not the special snowflake, Senketsu is. He is the one-of-a-kind mutant.
That's basically what I'm getting at. >>101712390
I honestly don't know where Mako will fit in. Maybe she'll give Ryuuko the idea to power down and fight fire with love.
Humanized Senketsu is moe.
Ryuuko is trying to snap the Mankanshoku's out of their zombified state, she has an argument with Satsuki because Satsuki probably goes to kill all the Life Fiber zombies saying that sacrifices are sometimes necessary.
I fucking love that image.
Maybe some kind anon will eventually lineart it like pic related.
>Ryuuko is the only one who can get Satsuki to calm down
Oh, god no. That's fucking disgusting. Have it be the death of Nonon or something that calms Satsuki down, Ryuuko is shit on the mic. I don't want to hear a generic Battler tier speech from Ryuuko.
I don't like the zombie theory. You know why? Because it's the most agreed upon theory on /a/, and every time a heavily agreed on theory comes out of /a/ regarding KlK, it's almost always proven wrong.
Like "Ryuuko's going to spend several episodes slowly fighting for and piecing Senketsu back together!" or "Satsuki = Nobunaga! Therefore she'll die during the Battle Trip!"
But then what?
That leaves the nigger and the life fiber.
Everyone was saying Satsuki would have a downfall after the battlefield trip. Which is pretty much looking to be the case, unless she beats Ragyo and the rest of the show is a slice of life.
Besides, zombies make no sense. Raygou wasn't trying to control humans with Life Fibers, she was feeding them to the Life Fibers in a mass sacrifice to awaken COVERS.
I wonder if Mataro will play a relevant role at all.
I don't think Satsuki being consumed by Junketsu is going to work the exact same way as Berserk Ryuuko did.
Ryuuko had to be calmed down from intense anger by Mako, Satsuki is getting consumed meaning Ryuuko is probably going to have to pull Satsuki's strong personality back out again. Junketsu taking over would mean Satsuki's resolve was broken and Junketsu's personality is able to take over, in Ryuuko's case she actually took over Senketsu, I believe she even mentions that while she was berserk she could hear Senketsu crying.
Mataro will get Mako's blood pumping. And when Mako's blood is pumping, shit goes nuts.
anyone got the link to the archived stream thread for this ep?
Satsuki will save him, she will princess carry him and he will nuzzle up to her enormous breasts pretending to be unconscious from shock.
It will be the best day of his life.
I think Ryuuko saving Satsuki is cringe-worthy. I think it's best for someone else to save Satsuki at the cost of their own life, for Satsuki to spend the next episode just completely broken, and THEN for Ryuuko to punch her in the tits and get her going.
Yeah, but that doesn't mean the zombie theory makes sense for the reasons pointed out in >>101712683
I think it's likely that Satsuki's downfall will be when she realizes that overriding Junketsu with her will isn't enough and that her willpower really can't overcome everything. That's when she'll break and go berserk. Ryuuko will then have to snap her out of it because she knows she can't fight alone.
And now I'm starting to think that Mako will convince Ryuuko to make an emotional appeal to Satsuki rather than fighting her.
This. Satsuki's going berserk will be her losing the will to live due to her grand plan failing, and letting Junketsu take over while she wallows in despair.
It'll be up to Ryuuko to renew that fighting spirit of hers.
It's pretty likely she's going to return the favor to Satsuki though, since Ryuuko would not be alive right now if Satsuki didn't stop Nui from killing her.
I guess we'll see, though.
Hm. I don't really know if that particularly matters or not. The problem with the fight for the next episode isn't just that Satsuki might, or will, go berserk, it's that Ragyo and Nui are still. right there.
I guess Ragyo and Nui might just fuck off after making Satsuki go berserk, but that's sort of lame.
Honestly, I think it would be a good way to start the partnership between Satsuki and Ryuuko. I think after going berserk, regardless of who saves her, Satsuki will be afraid and broken for an episode, and Ryuuko will then talk to her about it, having been through the same thing. Then she'll teach her to sync with Junketsu.
>And now I'm starting to think that Mako will convince Ryuuko to make an emotional appeal to Satsuki rather than fighting her.
She has a knack for those sorts of things. Despite being a retard, she's a peerless judge of character.
>I guess Ragyo and Nui might just fuck off after making Satsuki go berserk
Maybe they might. I bet their lines will be something like "Now our greatest threats can destroy each other without us even trying."
>Then she'll teach her to sync with Junketsu.
now this is interesting because Trigger makes it sound like this isn't possible, but did leave it a little ambiguous .
There are like 20 humanized Senketsu's so far. It is not that their designs are moe or not but that Senketsu has a very moe personality. That's why he is the husbando in the story.
And the wavy eyebrows and fangs are cute.
Ragyo is not trying to awaken COVERS. Life fibers breed by infecting like parasites and using the energy of their hosts to breed. What the "experiment" was supposed to do was turn the people in the stadium into food for life fibers to eat and multiply.
Man i hate monkey's current hair.
Somebody post Wolf of Osaka poster please.
Why the hell did I put an apostrophe there? I must have had a brainfart when i tried to write the plural of Senketsu.
Didn't they say he has a voice?
If I end up right about this and every proponent of the zombie theory is wrong, I don't know what I do, but it'll probably be along the lines of losing my shit. If I'm wrong, and the zombie guys are right, I may just shit my pants in shock, because I still feel that my shit is less silly than a "zombie" when the goal of the life fibers is to feed on humans, not control them.
Why does he hate the name so much? What does it mean?
"You came to the wrong neighborhood, motherfucker"
I don't know, think they kept that ambiguous too.
Trigger uses terms like
>Up to now
and shit like that a lot.
It was the name of a red light street district
Anybody been updating the chart?
My issue with this show is that it's very difficult to predict what will actually happen based on previews because they always seem to trick you.
DoTonbori Robo was probably designed within the
Takarada Conglomerate, possibly commisioned by Kaneo himself, who then supplied Nudist Beach wit the base models (using a specialized model for himself).
Sensei apparently doesn't hold any appreciation for Takarada, however, and prefers to just call it by its technical abbreviation.
ha ha ha, you'll never know what anything means because it is not translated
>"Actually, you did."
I guess that's a good thing in a way, though.
Trigger makes it sound like Satsuki is barely going to be in the next episode at all last week but then we get that.
The only thing I feel is certain is that next episode will be the fall of Satsuki as she is now, as well as the beginnings of the T&A Squad.
The fucking anger and intensity in Satsuki's eyes man. I fucking love it
How did Ryuko know it was called Dotonbori Robo?
She wasn't present when Takrada introduced it.
>"You came to the wrong neighborhood, motherfucker"
>YOU TURNED MY DAD INTO CLOTHES FOR THIS?!
I know I'm practically grasping at air here, but what if this is the start of Satsuki snapping and going berserk? Just letting out all of those emotions all at once?
>I know I'm practically grasping at air here
at this point there should be a collective effort to get that finished before the show ends
Anger isn't going to be the catalyst to getting consumed for her although it was probably good FOR her to get all the anger she had built up towards her mother out of her system.
Feelings like sadness and a feeling of defeat will lead to the consumption I think.
Or a rainbow-colored Walpurgis Night
Episode 14 needs to be cleaned up. I'd work on it but I'm not talented enough.
I'm the guy who's made half of what you see on the chart. I've been slacking off.
I'll probably end up doing that though.
Is the most recent I have. I'm just fishing for more.
>Translating the name of a place
That doesn't come from just wanting to overthrow Raygou, or stop her from wiping out humanity.
That level of white-hot hatred is fucking personal.
What the fuck did Raygou do?
I'm done worrying about the older ones until the rest of the chart is up to speed.
What would you recommend though?
Ryuuko had a whole episode to get over her funk and fear of hurting Senketsu again when she went berserk.
Satsuki is going to lose more if her plan fails but she has a very solid personality so it is hard to judge how much time it will take for her to get back on her feet. Next episode may also have a flashback about what happened to her father.
Dotonbori is one of the principal tourist destinations in Osaka, Japan.
I never got this new thing. Where did you get that Mako was doing that?
>there are only 7 Episodes left
>other episode directed by the guy who did episode 5 never
Don't rape girls with swords, or this could happen to you! Bitches be holding grudges, yo.
Why are they so perfect?
>that scene with Mako's family standing up to Gama
God it was so good
I meant fall as in her going berserk and the fallout from that.
Then my best guess is that Ryuuko tries to help Satsuki through that and we get backstory on Satsuki, as well as the possibility of Satsuki/Junketsu bonding in episode 19.
i dont know how people can root for those hannouji guys. These guys killed and crucified a student in episode one.
Do you have 16 in the works? I'd be willing to take a crack at it.
Yeah, but... Why would she hear 'DTR' and think 'Oh, Dotonbori Robo', which just so happens to be the specific name? That's just weirdly specific.
"Oh, the name must be a shortened name of a nearby place and 'Robo'"
That's a good thing. This is the kind of series I'd like to see die before it loses its luster.
I honestly don't think it would have been as good if they drew it out, or worse tried to find a way to reset powerlevels and start all over.
If I had to guess, Satsuki probably blames Ragyo for the disappearance of her father. This is assuming Satsuki actually wants to know about her father and misses him.
In one episode Satsuki became one of my favorite characters in the last 5 years
and a OVA
and then whatever Trigger does next.
I'm still trying to work towards a decent 15. Go ahead and give it shot.
>What the fuck did Raygou do?
My guess is that it involves Satsuki's father.
Mistake, I meant another one. Don't worry, I see you fixed it. I meant the stray Nui eye in 13.
The crab robot in ep 14 was called dotonburi robo, I think. And since it was likely supplied by Nudist Beach, it stands to reason that their robots are based on the same technology.
>Gama actually recoiling in fear at Mako's dad
Is it Thursday yet? Holy shit, I can't wait to see what direction Trigger is going to go with Mako's family. A complete cop-out wouldn't be too surprising, though.
>LWA 2 will probably be TRIGGER's next anime
That's a long time from now.
in this particular case it really isn't warranted but I felt like making the jab anyway
But really though, godrobe/ultima uniform > kamui/goku uniform any day, it boggles my mind how people can defend crunchyroll with all their typos, nameflipping and untranslated shit
Yeah, that was just an in progress shot I posted when I did a thread last week.
I agree, I'm just going to miss looking forward to it every week and talking about it with all of you
Look at his stomach. He's holding his breath in fear.
The problem is, Ryuko wasn't around, at any point, to hear the term 'Dotonbori Robo'. It's an error. Unless she somehow overheard and didn't help Takarada, which would make her a big cunt.
Jesus Christ she is cute.
>meeting the inlaws.gif
And it all went straight to her ass.
>Removing the zettai ryouiki
do you think satsuki's ass cheeks clap when she twerks?
Because Japanese humor.
Can someone make a .gif of when Senketsu is swinging from Mako's arms? That was cute too.
You missed a golden opportunity.
Is there anyone that believes that the Ragyou that was impaled wasn't a puppet?
Yes, because nothing happens behind the scenes ever. Your density is reaching critical mass.
Her original (non-kamui) uniform didn't have it.
Haha, you retards. You realize she was always putting on an act when out and about right?
Huh. Been too long I guess
Yeah I was about to post that I think Ragyou was one of Nui's puppets just to see if Satsuki would try this.
That doesn't sound believable at all.
how dare you put her in that position.
That's why I love it so much. Even Gama, wearing a 3 star outfit, is outright scared of Mako's father as soon as the man gets serious.
So this will not end well for Satsuki, yes?
Ryuko never received any mention of the robots, of Takarada, or anything else. We saw, in real time, every moment between her being taken to Nudist Beach and her leaving Nudist Beach,
Anyone know the name of this soundtrack? Ive benn googling and nothing been showing up
The more important question is where your dick would well better. In the titty valley or the goddess crack?
>Jesus Christ she is cute.
All of the youtube links of it got purged
Ehhh... I think it's a little early to be calling nopan.
Angle is too high to tell for sure.
Seriously? You don't recognize Blumenkranz?
Have you even downloaded the OST?
satsuki then sympathizes with ryuuko
I guess Satsuki didn't like the massage.
>Maiko came up with the entire plan.
>Had to be "kicked" out of school to stay off the radar while she carried out preparations behind the scenes.
>Ragyo is not lawful at all, she clearly does not care about laws/rules that other people created
The other laws don't matter. Ragyo is the law.
Thanks, I googled it and im getting all of this NightCore shit or remixes. Fuck why isnt there the original
>In Episode 17 Ragyo gets off the crucifix and flies away to her home planet.
At this point I think Satsuki should have been the main character or Ryuko
But Ryuuko is the main character.
She's the deuteragonist. Kind of like how Zuko was in ATLA.
I meant to say over ryuko but I'm retarded
this guy gets it
>Ragyo flees to the lifefibers home planet
>Ryuuko mad as fuck
>Satsuki explains how Honnouji Academy was designed for this very purpose
>School-is-a-Mech-theoryfags were right
>It takes off into space in pursuit
Mako is left behind and never seen again
Because Trigger is internet savvy enough to get the soundtrack off Google at the very least.
Just download the OST. Just don't bother to complain about what vocals you don't like, that was a thing for like a week and we have heard it all already.
Satsuki's story is not the kind that can be told with her as the protagonist. As the protagonist the ambiguity of her goals would be hard to maintain.
Life Fibers are Ragyo's gods.
>Jakazure can fly, Matoi can fly even my mom can fly!
>Why is that every goddamn female in this show can fly but me? This is bullshit!
TTGL tier space mech battle for ending
10/10 would watch and shitpost on /a/ about it
For those who're still wondering, Osaka has a robot called the Tsutenkaku Robo. When you look up pictures of Dotonbori(famous tourist spot) in Osaka you get a bridge with two long street. Kind of like the Tsutenkaku Robo without the tower.
At the end of Kill la Kill, Mako will live and then in the epilogueshe'll marry Gamagoori
Elite 4 confirmed for kill
Working on Episode 15 right now, here's an amusing bit that popped up while editing.
>Oi, Mako has a surprise for you Senketsu.
>I made you a girlfriend! Kamui Kanojoketsu!
i fucking hope not
>that feel when the giant life fiber alien is going to latch onto and take over Mako and Ryuko is going to have to put her down
Hopefully for Senketsu Junketsu is a female, and you know, not a rabid alien parasite either.
He's going to want to raise some little Life Fiber socks of his own someday.
>Generic Anime Poses #3548298745
Junketsu is a boy
Senketsu doesn't mind
Look at this guy, its like he doesn't anything to live for.
But can boy clothes really love boy clothes, anon?
>"I'm just playing along with her whims."
SHE DIDN'T MEAN NUI'S WHIMS
SHE MEANT SATSUKI'S
they aren't boys as long as they are skirts
The way Satsuki is wielding her sword looks really painful.
I like this guy
Well that's the magic of skirts, isn't it?
Underwater doesn't translate that either.
Has science gone too far?
>mfw Ragyo's entrance at the stadium
>There are people who think Satsuki and Ryuko will team up
I thought it was going to be an OVA?
>Ryuuko and Ragyo team up instead
I didn't mean like a series, just their next work.
>Ragyo is supposed to a queen of fashion
>She goes to the festival cosplaying as Cackletta from Mario and Luigi:Superstar Saga.
She looked like a parade baloon
Mako already ships Ryuuko and Senketsu.
Do not doubt her halleluiah speeches.
Life Fibers normally reproduce by eating energy from their hosts, preferably from the inside.
Symbiosis is new to them. So if there's going to be sexual reproduction, its going to be up to Ryuuko and Senketsu to figure it out.
>leaving the iron just laying on him
Do none of these fucking fanartists own clothes?
IF it is determined that Ragyou is the bigger threat at the moment, then it MIGHT happen briefly and be dissolved before their final showdown.
So, no more disco milf? Do you think she dead???
>Actually expecting them to survive Nuigeddon.
High Fashion can be ridiculous as fuck. It is mostly meant to be artistic rather than practical or show production pieces.
I thought it said Kinue was his older sister?
Maybe they are twins?
Maybe Kinue was Aikuro's wife and him and Tsumugu are brother in laws?
Maybe Aikuro is the actual son of Isshin?
Maybe the thing Isshin wanted to tell Ryuuko was that she was lab created?
Maybe Ryuuko is an alien?
That would be interesting. We have enough info now to deduce that Junketsu is intelligent now compared to our earlier translations that made him sound as if he had no intelligence.
Also due to all the threads showing up in Ragyou's possession I thought I'd go over a few of the threads of fate
Most everyone know it represents love and those destined to meet.
The fate of the black thread is one of misfortune and power. The bearer often carries a burden that will give them tragedy.
The fate of the white thread is one of innocence and purity. Those of the white are often charged with upholding justice.
The fate of the blue thread is one of longing for freedom and the chance to be happy again.
I think Mako plans to put the other one on top of him before ironing and making them "kiss"
>immediate hot female on cloth action
Man this show has it all
Do you also not own clothes? You can't just leave the iron there or it'll burn him.
>So if there's going to be sexual reproduction, its going to be up to Ryuuko and Senketsu to figure it out.
Yes, please. I liked the idea someone had earlier of them powering up later with her urging Senketsu to fill her body and come inside of her to represent sex and total and complete intimacy with each other.
Even Satsuki believes that Ragyou is well enough to pose a threat, otherwise she wouldn't have declared a rebellion with her army and fortress that haven't actually done anything yet.
I mean perhaps it's not even on yet, not like you need to preheat them in advance
Drama CD confirmed he was not dead. Just a No-Star.
You don't iron your own clothes.
>My guess is that it involves Satsuki's father.
I'VE GOT TO FIND OUT WHO KILLED MY DAD
That feel when second to last episode will have Ryuko wake up in her original uniform in a classroom by her childhood friend Mankanshoku Mako to go to an assembly where Student Council President Kiryuin Satsuki is giving a speech flanked by the elite 4.
>She actually is dead
>That preview shot is a flashback.
Well it is almost certain that they will power-up and their bond and/or love will be involved.
But something that explicit? I would have said that's impossible... before Ragyo purified Satsuki's chackras.
Now all bets are off as to how sexual they are willing to make this show as long as they don't show genitals or nipples.
Kill La Kill is Daddy Issues: the show. Also teenage girls suffer and grow up a bit in the process.
>as long as they don't show genitals
They already showed Mataro's painted junk.
I'm not sure entering your body is that explicit, which is what I meant.
>Kill La Kill is Daddy Issues: the show. Also teenage girls suffer and grow up a bit in the process.
Reminds me of something else
>I gotta find out who kill my dad.
Like disappointment and anger?
I fucking hate twists that are suppose to "mean" something.
actually they showed it unpainted in all its skin colored glory in an earlier episode too.
It doesn't even take a minute to become hot enough. Perhaps you need to get a better iron?
Shinchan rules apply, so it doesn't count.
Depends on the iron. I use a industrial one which has a boiler and stuff and it has to preheat. Irons really well though.
Anything could happen. I think this is Mako's last HALLELUJAH, though. She'll save Ryuuko, Satsuki, et al, then become the damsel for the last four episodes.
>thinks Raggedyhoe died
Its obvious you have to kill it with fire anon
>implying Satsuki's dad isn't the person smiling in the shadows
That doesn't count. They always show little boys' dicks in anime.
Mako's the one smiling in the shadows.
Post more loli Satsuki
Is one of the girls going to save Mataro next episode?
I imagine he'd be pretty pleased at being saved by a half naked woman while he's naked himself.
>Mako is the final boss.
>She was only pretending to be retarded.
>That doesn't count. They always show little boys' dicks in anime.
Well not ALWAYS. If that's what you think then you may be watching Boku no Pico on a loop.
The fagotry I've seen and been a part of are the reason I droped my trip a while back.
>tree behind them
>Sensei's name means beautiful tree
Confirmed, no more evidence needed
Episode 15 is done.
Wait why is that guy being eaten by a metroid?
Ahahaha, yes. That would be great. Bonus points if Satsuki acts different now that her act as a loyal daughter is over and she pats his head and is protective of him then tells him to call her oneesan
Nah, the rose didn't turn out as well as I hoped.
Let me see if I can fix it up a bit.
I'd laugh if that's what Satsuki is jumping in to the crowd for in the preview.
I upped the contrast a bit, hopefully it's a little easier to see now.
Only true ending.
>mfw Mako ED after impalement scene
>putting a shitty Ryuuko/Satsuki fight there
It's shit. You're shit.
Takarada was in the last episode.
If you want him in this one feel free to make one yourself.
Ragyo porn when
>The shitty fight that resolved nothing and was just another stalemate/loss for Ryuuko
>Not the fucking Dotonbori Robo
Ragyo Satsuki porn when?
Ryuko Senketsu porn when
klk is so underwhelming.
1 of every 3 episodes is decent, but for every decent 1 we get 2 mediocre boring two.
>satsukifags this delusional
>being this new
yes it was a bit jarring wasn't it.
Still rape, not all rape is strictly forcible. Clearly when we first see her and her mother together, she seems a little indifferent
Yep, can't wait for Thursday.
>implying this won't happen in 6 week's time
Yeah, because her mother is someone she's been plotting to kill her whole life it seems.
Never as japs have shit taste.
>Kiryuin, Matoi you've both contracted HIV.
>What the hell were you two doing playing with each other's blood in the first place!?
What would be the most convoluted ending for this show?
>the life fiber sphere is the final boss
>the life libers take control of ragyo and the sphere grows and consumes the earth
>Kamui become giant mechs
>Ryuuko and Satsuki both wield giant scissors
>final battle takes place in space
>with life fibers killed Senketsu beings to fade because he has fulfilled his purpose and grants Ryuuko a wish
>fade to white
>world is reset and everyone goes to normal school but Ryuuko remembers everything
>life fibers are killed
>everyone chills out at the beach in full nudity
>Senketsu wears a Hawaiian shirt and enjoys retirement
can someone post the aikuro father proof and tsumugu uncle proof my buddy is tellin me its the truth
I'm still confused on why exactly there are roses?
>world is reset and everyone goes to normal school but Ryuuko remembers everything
Who the fuck started this theory of everyone losing their memory of stuff? I want to slap them.
Second ending pls.
look you blind shit
>20 minutes just for 1 minute of interesting content
Because it's the Takarada episode but he doesn't want to put Takarada in since he was also the most notable part of the previous episode.
Rewatch Takarada's fight with Sanageyama
aikuro only mybad
Ah, I see. It just didn't come to mind since it was drawn instead of being cut from the show.
>Senketsu wears a Hawaiian shirt
>clothes wearing clothes
When Monkey inserted his sword inside Takarada's anus his homosexual delight was represented by a rose losing its petals.
Like when Mako's dad sat on the bidet.
you're an idiot
im in need of the aikuro is father proof please anyone
Anyone else hoping for a Satsuki and Ryuko team up?
It came from the idea that everything is Ryuuko's chunni hallucination and it ending with her stabbing Satsuki to death as the world loses its luster and everything turns normal.
we saw this possibility all the way back from episode 1. Also who is going to wield the purple scissors when Nui eventually loses?
Didn't you ask this in a previous thread?
nope, woulda saved it
If it is true i'm surprise how he was able to insert his dick into the rainbow road of crazy. Maybe Raygo wasn't evil at first?
I don't get why people keep posting this theory.
Aikurou has shown absolutely no concern about Satsuki thus far, and neither did Satsuki show any special feelings for him when she met him a few episodes ago.
How's autism working out for you? Go on, lay out your argument for that one minute of content. It's ok.
>Also who is going to wield the purple scissors when Nui eventually loses?
Ryuuko? The scissor was originally one.
Satsuki's sword can already cut Kamui, so she doesn't need those scissors.
Just a reminder that THE SUN IS MADE OF LIFE FIBERS
Because it's more fun that Nui or Rei is the final boss lurking in the shadows
In part its because there's a lot about Aikurou's past that we don't know despite him being a very important character. By now we know more about Tsumugu's past than Aikurou's.
I did laugh.
But that is no evidence of him being Satsuki's father.
If he was, you can bet that by now, ep17, we'd have some hints, especially in Aikurou's and Satsuki's behaviour, since going by ep17, Satsuki seems pretty fond of her father, yet she showed no special concern for Aikurou when she met him a few episodes ago.
So thats the face of the all consuming god of tyranny.
I can dig it.
This gives me some serious Project A-Ko vibes.
Great argument Anon-kun!
Please, do enlighten me more with your endless wisdom.
She was rather preoccupid at that moment, so she may not have noticed.
That or she has had the memories of her father altered by Nui.
there's no point in arguing with you, you've seen the pictures and you still deny it. The ignorant remain ignorant
>She was rather preoccupid at that moment, so she may not have noticed.
But she saw him directly. There's no way she didn't notice him.
See my pic.
>That or she has had the memories of her father altered by Nui.
I could agree to this being a possibility, but correct me if I'm wrong, I don't think we've seen Nui using any mind-altering abilities.
So... You put some pictures together, and wham, you get an infallible argument, even when it doesn't stand up to the logic and what's been show in the story thus far?
You know? Yeah, you're right. There's no point in arguing with me. You simply have no argument to share.
I'll do the same, and not waste my time with you.
Have we seen Aikuro's face in the second flash back? In the first one it was just from behind.
Face and voice are absent from both flashbacks, which means there is some sort of twist going on.
Nobody knows for how long satsuki's father disappearead, maybe she forgot how exactly he looks or he changed his appearance
when all you have to fight a case that has evidence is no you are wrong then yeahhhhhhh nuff said im not sayin its fact but its more plausible and compelling than nah your a cunt
cry yourself to sleep tonight
Shit, I was thinking what if being infected by life fibers gave him back his youth, along with the glowing nipples/kiryuin light show powers.
This show is fucking metal!
Please second ending would be the greatest thing ever.
it really is anon i say it at the end of every ep METAL
The first one is retarded but the second one is great.
Honestly now that I think about it if he were Satsuki's dad why would she acknowledge him in front of her allies and rival?
>Nui using any mind-altering abilities.
Blue scissor half.
That is adorable.
Shame that was moments before Ragyo first raped her daughter.
Hououmaru was in on this, huh.
I really hope someone rips/subs this from the BD.
>Ragyo gets stabbed
>she gets nailed to the cross
>I start laughing
>Satsuki declares rebellion
>can't contain myself
That bitch finally got what was coming for her. Can't wait for another episode.
I hope we get commentary tracks as well. It's a damn shame that it's not more common. So what's everyone's idea of a "perfect release"?
>BD video rip
>Underwater typesetting (but improved)
>Optional dub audio tracks
>All side material from the BD included
Already ahead of you, Anon
Ryouko's red hair is actually life fiber, right?
Or is it "anti-life-fiber" since it would have been put there by her father to help her fight the actual life fiber?
Uninspired, and it still looks like a metroid.
Would have been better to just go with Shiten'ou. Choosing to translate/localize "Shiten'ou" as "Elite Four" is probably a reference to Pokémon, which did the same thing. Though it kinda makes me sad, knowing that in Japanese, the Elite Four in Pokémon is basically being equated to demigods, while we get a more generic name.
Its not rape if she consented to it. and she did.
>and she did
Did Trigger say that on their twitter? Because it sure didn't happen in the episode.
The problem is that we don't have anything equitable in Western culture to the 四天王. We have, say, the Holy Trinity, or the Three Wise Men... but, IIRC, nothing culturally significant using "four". All we're left is using generic names.
Either way, I think Elite Four works fine. Conversely, I prefer Kamui over Godrobe; I think it's really just what sounds better in English. But that's just me.
Few English-speaking viewers know what "Shitenou" refers to. Translating it to something like "Elite Four" was the right choice.
