So Kill la Kill is 17 episodes in and I was wondering. Could Ryuko or anyone in the KLK world take on LordGenome yet? I was expecting this show to go full crazy like TTGL did but so far the power progression seems to actually be pretty slow.
>>
Maybe Ragyo or the giant alien yarn ball but nobody can say at this point.

Regardless, KLK doesn't need to ape TTGL every step of the way, nor does it have to aim for the same heights as TTGL in order to be good.

Probably because they've got ASD of some form.

It's a little silly how similar KLK to TTGL is, really.

It's because Imaishi is creatively bankrupt
>>
>>101700748
That's really not a question you want to ask about KlK, which features a caste system based on people's powerlevels and uses a life fiber % system to represent strength. It's about as explicit as DBZ.

Also KLK actually makes use of most of its characters whereas TTGL threw most of them away.
>>
>>101700376
The pacing has been ridiculously slow. There have only been 4-5 noteworthy plot points. It feels like everything could have easily been done in 12 episodes, maybe less.
>>
>>101701441
Imaishi is a director though, not a writer. He doesn't actually create the stories themselves. Directors aren't responsible for the story itself, just how it's told.

Simon had growth and in the end had CHARACTER

What the FUCK is Ryuuko?
Shes NICE
That's it!
She is SO FUCKING PLEASANT
OH HER DAD DIED (Who is still a joke character and she herself said she didn't give a fuck about him)
Simon grew and became a competent person at the end

Ryuuko has ALWAYS been the same.
Nothing has changed
She lost senketsu for ALMOST an episode and nothing changed

Satsuki is a WAY better MC.
Senketsu is also boring.
>>
>>101701733
Even if it is "always told like Getter" it's still told better than 90% of the schlock anime out there.
>>
>>101701502
It's easy to use all your characters when they're walking stock cliches. The main TTGL characters had at least some substance.
The only character in KLK I could say that about is maybe Satsuki.
>>
>>101701502
No fight in KLK makes it feel like anything has chanced. Everything goes back to normal after each episode pretty much.

So are you implying that TTGL characters weren't cliches? Because that's, y'know, wrong.

The only thing Simon has going for him is that he grits his teeth a lot and rants about his drill before making the impossible possible.

This. Basically every episode of ttgl accomplished something. There are so many episodes in Kill la kill that are pointless.

Simon, Kamina, Yoko, Nia, Rossiue, Lordgenome all had more depth than the KLK main characters. Hell, even some side characters like Dayakka have more. These characters actually have a character, they have a backstory and reasons to act the way they act.

The problem with the KLK characters is they're all cardboard cutouts. We don't know anything about them and the show doesn't care about getting us to know them.
>>
>>101702023
Read the thread.
I agree, making Ryuuko the MC was the biggest complaint I had.

If the show was from satsuki's point of view I would have been so much happier.

Her monologue in episode 3 really stole the limelight.

After Nui debuted Simon never struggled. He never failed. He just won and won and won. And then became a hobo. At least Ryuuko runs away.

>>101701813
Ryuuko is a deeply lonely girl with abandonment issues. She puts up the delinquent face because she is lonely. She is extra nice to Mako and Senketsu because they're the only friends she has ever had. She is still growing and was just told the truth one episode ago; she didn't even know she was fighting for the fate of the world. She ran away when shit got bad.

I loved Simon in episodes 1-9; his relationship with Kamina was great. Once he became unstoppable drilling machine who faced no real danger it just didn't work as well. Nia was a lazy plot-device character that despite not being as bad as people think she is still ruined Simon's development by giving him a fake motivation.
>>
>>101702023
It's not hard to become more interesting than Bland McHotblood.
>>
>>101702023
At this point yes, but that's mostly because people have been trying to piece together her motivations and goals. Ryuuko, in contrast, pretty much wears her heart on her sleeve. Satsuki's still a bitch though.
>>
>>101702033
But they didn't even know what beastmen were in episode 1.
>>
>>101702101
>After Nui debuted Simon never struggled. He never failed. He just won and won and won. And then became a hobo. At least Ryuuko runs away.

Except for the part where he was in prison and abandoned by everything he worked for. Oh and the part where the people close to him actually die because actions have consequences and everyone doesn't magically survive every battle.

No she doesn't
At NO POINT does she do something "delinquent-like" other than saying "yeah i'm a badass"

When did she run away?
When during the episode Nui disguised herself? Because that was her just lying in bed being mopey and got quickly over it.

It does matter because the revelation that beastmen exist, that the spiral king exists, where he is, etc. is actually plot development. Something KLK luckily remembered exists in the last episode after basically nothing happening for 10 episodes.

Kind of like how Ryuuko hit a low point when Senketsu was torn to shreds right?

Why the fuck didn't Satsuki just defect to Nudist Beach and take Ryuuko with her the moment she was put in charge of Honnoji?

It's not much of a "plot development" if you're still fighting the same enemy.

And it turned out to be the Anti-Spiral's plan and HE WAS RIGHT ALL ALONG, ROSSIU FUCKED UP.

Not in the movie, that tells you how fucking relevant their deaths actually were. His only real sacrifice was Nia. ONCE AGAIN, EVERYONE ABOUT HIM COMES BACK TO NIA. EVEN HIS MOTIVATION IN THE MOVIE.

>>101702224

Yes she does. She trash-talks everthing and everyone, nobody else in the show does.

Episodes 1 and 6.

Because Kamina and Kitan never existed
>>
>>101702369
It's all about pace.
Simon's seeing everything he worked for destroyed was a development over 5 episodes. You see, tension needs to build it, actions need to carry weight and things like that need good pacing.
If 'the big crisis' of your main character is resolved in less than an episode.... well it fucking sucks.
>>
>>101702384
Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.
>>
>>101702503
I said after Nia debuted. You're right against Kittan, but it was played as Kittan's own sacrifice, not Simon's.
>>
>>101702444
>And it turned out to be the Anti-Spiral's plan
What? When did the anti spiral plan to put Simon in prison? They didn't even give a shit about him that early on.
>>
>>101702429
Are you retarded? I guess revelations in something like a murder mystery don't count as plot development either because you're still looking for the same killer?
Please stop talking utter nonsense.
>>
>>101702328
It's no different, the first 3 episodes are the gang learning what's going on, the rest of the first half is fighting the Sprial King until we find out the real plot of the show.
>>
>>101702444
No one died in the movie because they didn't have enough screen time to mourn over characters that the people who watched the movies didn't get enough time to care about.
>>
>>101702555

But Ragyou was not even near Honoji

The more the show progresses the less sense the conflict between Satsuki, Ryuuko and Nudist Beach makes
>>
>>101702571
The movie rewrote everything to make it the Anti-Spiral's plan. Nia even teases Simon about it before beating up Viral.

>>101702710
>not caring about Egg head shaped guy

>>101702732
No she doesn't, the only time she ever fights someone the same it's Satsuki, whose been built up as a real rival, not like some loser like Viral who Simon fights every other episode and destroys in increasingly comical ways.
>>
>>101702732

>>
>>101702732
Ryuuko wasn't aware the conflict had such a large scale in the first place; if they keep up the pacing and have the developments succed each other in quick speed while actually giving meaning to the first half by making the Devas and Mako's family relevant KLK could easily be saved.
>>
>>101702681
Things that change how the characters act and think.
People are saying 'well nothing happened in TTGL for like 15 episodes because they were always fighting the spiral king', but that's wrong. It took them 3 episode to figure out what the fuck's going on, then another 5 to actually learn how to get to the spiral king and then some episodes of them actually progressing towards their goal.
Progress it the key word here. To come back to KLK, there were many episodes where virtually no progress towards Ryuuko's goal was made. Things were just sort of happening and she went along because the plot demanded it.
>>
>>101702792
How many times has Ryuko fought Satsuki to have it all go back down to square one? You could take out 75% of the episodes. You can't take out more than one or two ttgl episodes without the plot being completely fucked.
>>
>>101702859
This. KLK has shit pacing. It is entertaining but it feels like you could shuffle the episodes around and not notice much.
>>
>>101702930
She fought Satsuki twice. The first time she lost, and the second time she won.
>>
>>101702859
>Things that change how the characters act and think.
So how does the revelation of The Spiral King being a person change their course of action at all? The goal from Ep2 onward (you could even argue by the end of Ep1) was "fight the Gunmen". They just end up slapping a different name on the same enemy. The characters' goals and actions in TTGL do not change throughout this arc. The only thing that changes is Simon's attitude.
>>
>>101702977
>Twice
4 times actually.
>>
>>101703023
No, just twice.
>>
>>101702985
Considering that was when Kamina died and nia was introduced in sort of did change things.

>So how does the revelation of The Spiral King being a person change their course of action at all?

We could have seriously got to episode 16 in 8 episodes if we cut out all the filler and arcs that went no where.
>>
>>101703063
Shit changed a lot *after* the spiral king.
Spiral power, humanities growth and destruction, all those revelations didn't occur till the final arc, and Anti Spiral was only solidly referenced at the very end of Ep 15.

In comparison, by Ep 16. of KLK we've had life fibers explained, REVOCS goals revealed, humanity's fate at the "hands" of life fibers explained, etc. etc. How is it so different?
>>
>>101702985
>So how does the revelation of The Spiral King being a person change their course of action at all?
Well previously they were just wandering around, when they found out the Spiral King exists and where he is, they had an actual destination and a clear goal. They always wanted to defeat the beastmen, but before that they didn't really know how aside from running around beating up random Gunmen.
>>
>>101703150
>filler
There's that word again.
>>
>>101703209
I already said that luckily KLK remembered the plot in the latest episodes, but that doesn't make up for the awful pacing in the 10 before that. I mean, how much of that shit was explained in the last two episodes? Basically everything.
>>
Just make KLK keep up the pacing and it will be fine. Stop dragging out inevitable plot points like Junketsu going berserk.

18. DON'T DRAG IT OUT, SATSUKI IS GETTING MORALLY WRECKED THIS ARC. IF SHE IS GOING TO GO BERSERK JUST MAKE HER GO BERSERK ALREADY
19: Ryuuko fights against Berserk Satsuki; she ends up saving Satsuki and Junketsu, THEY FINALLY TEAM UP
20: JUST MAKE AIKUROU TELL RYUUKO FUCKING EVERYTHING, WE ALREADY KNOW KINUE IS HER MOM. STOP HIDING OBVIOUS SHIT. ALSO: TSUMUGU DIES.
21: AN EPISODE FOR THE ELITE FOUR SO THEY DON'T FEEL SO WORTHLESS
22: NUI AND RAGYOU GET KILLED
23: Ryuuko and Satsuki disagree about the Life Fiber conflict, they fight one last time. (Ryuuko wins, for real-real)
24: Ryuuko discovers the truth of the world and we get a crazy fucking ending as she fights with Life Fiber God

PLEASE NO MORE STATUS QUO

>>101703089
Why would you count that? Berserker is a major plot point in itself, and Satsuki only fights her very shortly, she spends most of the "fight" fighting Nui.

>>101703308
Why wouldn't you count it?

I'm not even really arguing with you, but really why wouldn't you?
>>
>>101703209
They do all the plot in one episode instead of pacing it out throughout the series. It as if this could have been the fourth episode.
>>
>>101703287
But it was being built up the entire way, and TTGL wasn't any different.
>>
>>101700688
She can pinpoint a weakness in a specific type of clothing.

Other than that she's a uselss fuck in comparison to almost all combat oriented characters from other shows, even Isshin manged to cut her fucking eye open.
>>
>>101703327
Idk if there's an ep 16 or 17 yet.
>>
>>101703363
No they don't. They allude to Anti-spiral in Ep15 and reveal it in the next episode. Spiral energy and the fate of spiral races wasn't even revealed till the second to last (maybe third to last?) episode.
>>
>>101703351
Because it's not a rematch, it's Ryuko berserking, and in the very end Satsuki steps in to stop her. And berserker is a major precedence for the idea of Life Fibers eating humans, which is the biggest plot point of the series. The argument was that Ryuko just keeps fighting Satsuki and you can just cut it all out and nothing will change, but that's flat out wrong.
>>
>>101702834

>>
>>101703477

>>
>>101703808
That wasn't done till the final arc and we didn't get reveals on the ultimate fate of spiral races till near the end. We got teased with some bits here and there with him talking to viral but we don't know shit about the Anti-spiral or why he conquered Earth till well after episode 15.

Yeah, okay.

Is it? I don't really remember that scene. But I think this is a lot more ominous, than anything like that.
>>
>>101704609
>KLK isn't TTGL

Yes TTGL was actually good, and not animated on a shoestring budget

Why not just rewatch TTGL?
>>
>>101704614
So it would be better if the generals all died like the complete losers that were the 4 heavenly kings, instead of being major characte?
>>
>>101704614
>it meant nothing because it came back and didn't die
So Sanageyama should have died in order for the episode to mean something? His character development in that episode was meaningless?
>>
>>101704630
But those weren't important to the over all plot.
>>
>>101700376
m-maybe KLK isn't TTGL guys! but i-i don't know that yet
>>
>>101704704
>Some one can't be a major character if they die
I would proffer if more than half the arcs actually progressed the plot.
>>
>>101704704
No, don't you see? KLK would be so much more meaningful if it completely rehashed and parroted TTGL plot point for plot point.
>>
>>101704691
Why would someone shitpost on the internet?
>>
>>101704721
Yes they were, Ryuko finally found her father's killer through the tournament, found her motivation and the truth behind everything during the trip, and now the festival is what we've been building towards the entire way through, not unlike the journey to space in TTGL.
>>
>>101704769
You realize you can progress a plot without killing off main characters right?
>>
>>101704769
The 4 heavenly kings didn't progress the plot just because they died in TTGL, they were all just roadblocks with names and no other relevance.
>>
>>101704849
Yeah and KLK hasn't done this for 75% of it's episodes.
>>
>>101704721
>But those weren't important to the over all plot.
Why not?
Why were all the points you posted about TTGL important but the points I posted about KLK not important?

We had 3 or so useless tournaments before one plot point is explained.

I haven't actually seen the show but why are people getting so hyped up about a SoL?

From what I've heard the show is about
>mysterious transfer student
>"don't be late" day
>run-ins with various clubs
>tournament
>field trip (to Osaka?)
>culture festival

Is it because KLK has good art design or something? Honestly, from an outside perspective, it sounds like Azumanga meets Haruhi.

The rest of my perception of this show comes from fan art.
>>
>>101704885
Kill off characters? Yeah I agree. Probably because they're important or something.
>>
>>101704897
One progresses the plot while the others do not.
>>
>>101704913
What are you quoting?
>>
>>101704941
There was one tournament before the most important plot point is explained.
>>
>>101704981
Care to explain why?
>>
>>101704952

Mako could have been killed a dozen times and nothing would have changed.
>>
>>101700482
It already tries to.
>>
>>101705061
One effects every episode after while an episode like number 4 did nothing.

You almost got it, but KLK is actually a harem
>>
>>101705151
You did a piss poor job of it obviously.

>>101705158
So you're just going to compare TTGL ep8 to KLK ep4? Yeah, that sounds fair.
>>
>>101705223
Every episode of ttgl accomplishes something.
>>
>>101705356
Except when it doesn't.
>>
>>101705431
Name an episode where something doesn't get accomplished.
>>
So, uh. What was the point of Ryuuko losing Senketsu and the tri-city raid? I just don't see what that whole arc brought to the story.
>>
>>101705458
By your standards? Episode 4.
>>
>>101705495
You mean the one where some major characters are announced?
>>
>>101705581
Yes. Now you name an episode of KLK where "nothing is accomplished' or "nothing happens".
>>
>>101705633
Episode 4. It is a filler episode and nothing that happens in it effects the rest of the story.
>>
>>101705675
>filler episode
You're right. We don't learn that only Ryuuko can wear Senketsu in that episode. Nothing happens.
>>
>>101705734
You learn that in later episodes.
>>
>>101705792
No, actually you learn that in episode 4.
>>
>>101705792
You learn it in that episode, it's even referred to in episode 8.
>>
>>101705489
Ryuko needed to learn that Senketsu is her true motivation, which segways into her final reason, the co-existence, which incidentally comes to a head at the end of that arc since the goal of Satsuki was to smoke out Nudist Beach's base.
>>
>>101705830
And other episodes as well that explain it just in case you didn't watch episode 4.

Lord Genome was fighting the Anti-Spiral since he was fucking 10 or so, he grew up on the battlefield

She can pinpoint weaknesses in life fiber clothing. Lord Genome does not need any of that shit, so I think he can still beat her.

>being mad at french

haha muritard
>>
>imagining Lordgenome defeating everyone by punching them to death in the KLK series
I would fund it.
>>
Boring plot, not funny, doesn't know when to take itself seriously, bad pacing, cool characters get no development and don't do anything noteworthy, jarring fanservice that for some reason gets a free pass because "it doesn't take itself seriously", etc. etc.
>>
>>101707016
I think you lost your way to a samumenco thread.
