Does /a/ really like this show or are all of you being ironic? I can't really take this show seriously
If by /a/ you mean shitposters, crossboarders and newfags then yes.
Just go drop it and watch something super serious for you like Attack on Titan.
I don't think I ever had any intention of watching it. And now even more so.
Nobody is taking this show seriously.
KLK is a fun anime and only fat virgins with "taste" complain about it
you're a dumbass
>Does /a/ really like this show
No, but /v/ can't get enough.
Yes. The show is good.
>I can't really take this show seriously
That's kind of the point.
Can someone explain to me why /a/ has a raging hate-boner for /v/?
I don't like it. Then again I didn't like TTGL or FLCL either.
It's fun. I don't think I could call it good, but I can defiantly get hyped from it.
>I can't really take this show seriously
Maybe anime isn't for you.
>I can't really take this show seriously
That's the point.
You clearly haven't watched the whole thing or you don't know how to have fun. You might be dead inside.
/v/ tell you to fuck off?
Your right I only watch mature animes like cowboy bepob and elfen lied.
>more SlS threads
Is it the only anime you guys talk about? So many fucking threads a day.
Mostly because /v/ is a shitfest and people are worried about it spreading to other boards.
But also because people need a boogeyman.
>Can someone explain to me why /a/ has a raging hate-boner for /v/?
There's really no reason. It's just a meme.
A good portion of /a/'s userbase is from /v/ anyway, and it's been proven. Anyone who goes "go back to /v/" is just kidding around.
>it's ok that it's bad, because it's supposed to be bad
Need a scapegoat for your own problems so that your own ego doesn't get compromised. Only the "elite" of /a/ hate /v/ and actively post about it.
A lot of people browse both boards because if you enjoy anime you'll probably also enjoy videogames, hence the connection.
I don't even go onto /v/. I don't know shit about video games.
It's not like that. It's a fun action show that doesn't give a shit. Like Gaiking.
It's like /b/ except its shitty user base spreads to other boards
>I don't even go onto /v/. I don't know shit about video games.
/v/ doesn't even play video games. They shitpost all day.
There was nearly an entire year of vitriolic redirects to /v/ not that long ago.
Anybody have the update KLK version?
Idk if anyone finished ep18 yet but I saw some people working on it yesterday.
I like it.
>I don't know shit about video games.
you sound qualified for /v/, you should give it a try
KLK is Trigger's GunBuster.
It's not a legit attempt to create a new or interesting story, it's a small studio made up of of anime fans writing a love letter to the medium.
But I like talking about anime though.
it's a show someone like yourself from /v would love
I play video games.
>I'M ONLY WATCH LE /a/ xD
I didn't know I had to take it seriously to like it
thank you for telling me
What the fuck are you even saying?
>can people really enjoy things I don't?
Yeah it's weird, huh?
You're retarded, please stop posting
Don't be silly. We're all just pretending to enjoy it.
Dropped at episode 2
Still collect art
Will probably watch once it is finished
Also thanks for proving what I said, retard.
This really needed its own thread.
The show is getting pretty hype, but I feel bad that there probably won't be any more stuff with Mako's family. They are the funniest part of the show.
>They are the worst part of this show
I agree completely
Anime girls are vague and shallow characters. I think I see why the Anime has declined now. Because it panthers to waifu-fags and weeaboos. Anything that features a girl is panthering to waifus all the way. Prove me wrong.
>it panthers to waifu-fags and weeaboos.
>panthering to waifus all the way.
I'm trying to picture what you just typed in my head but it's not working out.
I would have taken them sitting nude for episode 16, but this works too.
I'll panther you.
Go there before you get all asspained on me.
Every board hates /v/. Even the /v/ spin offs hate /v/.
Aw fuck. It doesn't work anymore.
>I can't really take this show seriously
You aren't supposed to.
Because all they want to do is argue and talk about sales. The worst part it's that every single one off them suck at arguing and they are probably the last place on the internet that still use "le"
/v/ is, for all intents and purposes, /b/.
But regardless, who gives a shit what /b/ thinks.
I like /v/. I think people exaggerate, it's no longer Summer 2012 anymore.
People definitely exaggerate, but it's still a shithole.
It may be better then before, but it's still a really shitty board. I feel like I'm on Reddit when i'm there.
Weeaboos and waifu fags are also another reason why everybody thinks anime is shit. Because its abundant with so many female leads and everyone knows girls make awful characters. Guys are proven to being vastly superior in strength, competitiveness, and intelligence than girls are. They shouldn't be in anime they give off the vibes of being weebooish. That's why everyone thinks anime is for weebooos and lonely social rejects because they idolize girly crap and female characters. Because some of these guys idolize girls they are becoming worthless in society. Fuckin feminists are forcing their shit up our asses.
I guess. Console war threads are just a tiny step above shit like dubs and general offtopic.
Those posts went completely over your head didn't they?...
This thread itself is reason enough to understand why people dislike KLK's fanbase and how fucking cancerous you lot are.
I think it's gotten better since /vg/ was made, and mods actually took care of the non-stop off topic threads, but it's still one of the worst boards.
Improvement is improvement. The problem is that /v/ has to be babysat, or it goes downhill again.
I blame moot for letting /v/ fester for so long.
Hey, if we're improving, then the site in general is going up too.
People pin shit on /v/ because it's the most logical scapegoat, since same site, weeaboo games, etc.
I'd rather have /v/ermin over faggots from /soc/ or tumblr any day, though.
The only shit about kill la kill was it was asspulls out of nowhere. but it's not really supposed to be taken seriously.
Since it's showed towards your typical anime watcher
>letting /v/ fester for so long
Like he's currently doing with /a/? At least /v/ got a containment board for generals.
Then you've never been on Reddit
/v/ may be shit and filled with normalfags, but it is better than any game forum anywhere, the reason being is that it is here
There are people that try to take Kill la Kill seriously?
How is /a/ festering? The moderation is very strong on this board.
>but it is better than any game forum anywhere, the reason being is that it is here
Oh god, please tell me you're not serious.
>at least /v/ got a containment board for generals
>The problem is that /v/ has to be babysat
Haven't been to /v/ in like 6 months. Are they still going cray about Anita and console wars? I popped in a few weeks ago and it was the same. I want to go back but not if this shit is still going on.
>it is better than any game forum anywhere
Can you name a better gaming forum?
Most of the board hates the show.
It's not like TTGL, which is universally loved.
Silly shitposter, talking out of your ass.
Name me one better site not controlled by shills, suck dev cock, and literally eat shit.
It is. You know why? Because I can just say "fuck you faggot" and not deal with drama like in places like neogaf
The reason you give is fucking retarded.
Why do mods allow such shitty meta threads to exist?
Did we turn into /v/?
IGN. It's shit but it's better then /v/.
>Most of the board hates the show.
Just because you say it doesn't mean it's true.
>the gender that's been scientifically proven to be able to withstand torture longer, able to multi-task better, and express emotion more thoroughly make awful characters
I'm as right as logic will allow but your so fucking full of shit
She pops up once in a while though threads about her 404 instantly. Console wars are still burning unfortunately.
>literally the fox news of gaming
I didn't give any reasons. I'm just asking.
You can't say if a board likes or hates something because it's easy for a loud contrarian or fanboy to make his presence look bigger than it is.
>IGN. It's shit but it's better then /v/.
Stop talking about that shithole and go back.
It wasn't a meta thread until shitposters decided to talk about /v/.
Make a KLK image the OP and see the vitril raining down.
It's not TTGL or Cowboy Bebop. Most thought that /v/ was going to like, but the overall majority does not.
>No, but /v/ can't get enough.
/v/ has been pissed as shit of every /a/ cross-boarder that makes poorly hidden KLK threads that usually sound something like "What is the Kill La Kill of videogames"
Would you faggots stop baiting the /v/irgins already?
Sounds like Quentin.
/v/ is the lowest bottom of the barrel.
Gamefags, reddit, neogaff have developer & people ITK constanly posting and asking for input. What /v/ have other than shitpost ? nothing.
>Make a KLK image the OP and see the vitril raining down.
You could say that for pretty much any show retard.
>the overall majority does not.
Do you have a single fact to back that up?
>mfw I got 3 day banned for having a kill la kill reaction image, while threads go crazy with them because they put the words "video games" in the OP
It's the two main boards for a lot of people and whenever there is talk about anime on /v/ it boils down to a retarded amount of praise to shows that usually get a lot of hate on /a/(like Attack on Titan). This makes the people who use both /a/ and /v/ cringe and creates the image that /v/ has shit taste when it comes to anime.
But saying that /v/ is worse that /b/ is downright retarded. /b/ has always been a shit-hole, but now it has become something that could be described as the offspring of 9gag and Reddit.
He's right. Anything is better than /v/, no matter how shitty it is. reddit, Neogaf, or whatever shithole has less shit than /v/ these days. Now fuck off and go back.
>Some people are actually defending /v/
What has this board come too.
What I said is proof enough. Or just look up the archives.
Do you have proof of the opposite? Cause I already gave proof of my side.
>Gamefags, reddit, neogaff
>Anime recently now panders to weeaboos and waifu-fags
You're new is showing. Shit's been around forever.
The only problem with KLK is that they have a bazillion simultaneous general or episodic threads daily. The sticky yesterday actually helped alot somewhat. Wish mods brought it back. Also people should enjoy the anime for what it is even if somebody you know that you hate, watches it. Because if you don't you end up defining /a/ with a stigma of hipsters.
It's OK if you want an anime where you can turn your brain off and enjoy some mindless action. The characters and story are really really REALLY shallow.
Fuck off, /v/ermin.
It did, it helps contain the idiots from shitting up the real threads.
>Gamefags, reddit, neogaff have developer & people ITK constanly posting and asking for input.
Because they can actually confirm their identity on those sites, whereas on /v/ you can't. That doesn't mean they are better though.
>What /v/ have other than shitpost ? nothing.
Unfiltered opinions amidst a sea of shit. Users who don't have to pander to prima donna mods or people who don't have to worry about their opinion being drowned out by downvotes regardless of how unpopular it may be.
>people are actually discussing /v/ at all
Worse than /v/-tards
Then why don't you faggots go on an actual anime forum then? /a/ is literally the same exact thing as /v/, just for anime.
>What I said is proof enough.
No. You just gave your opinion. Opinions aren't proof.
>Or just look up the archives.
And see a shit ton of threads posted every day about it. Yeah, you're right. There are constantly dozens of threads reaching bump limit because everyone just hates it so much.
>Do you have proof of the opposite? Cause I already gave proof of my side.
You really don't understand how this works do you?
Holy fuck, there are seriously /v/ermin in here, defending their shithole.
I don't know what to say. Just get the fuck out and never come back. As expected of KLKfags.
>The characters and story are really really REALLY shallow.
In what way? Because they aren't troubled by trifling petty love triangles or pathetic existential angst?
No it isn't. This is the same defense a /v/ro gives when defending his shithole every single time.
>You really don't understand how this works do you?
Neither do you. According to you, we would both be wrong.
I go to /v/
I've been posting on /a/ as well for years
And you never
I don't think people are even really saying /v/ is great, just that it's less shitty than other video game forums. We all know /v/ is shit, it's just about order of magnitude.
/v/ is Reddit now, /b/ is facebook now and /co/ is Tumblr now. I wonder what /a/ will be.
You're the one who made the sweeping generalization in the first place. I merely pointed to some bits of information that shows how retarded you are.
I've been on /a/ since 2006 and I use /mlp/ too.
Get angry at how boards separate topics but not people.
Crossboarders never go away. No matter how many redirects you might pull out.
What a moot point.
All of the characters outside of Satsuki and Ryuko have had literally only a few minutes' worth of character development. Compare their development to someone like Shinji or Guts.
All three will come for us at once now that they have established their footholds. We must defend ourselves.
Be it about game or anime /v/ is the place of entry level discussion.
>"I just bought a ps3 please tell me must have games" thread#35925498
>"What kind of event is this 'nintendo direct' ?
>"Look at this neogaff post i carefully picked screenshots. They are so bad lol. OMG why someone haven't hacked them yet ?"
>That game is shit sonygger/nintodler/microshill/plebrace, i've watched it at youtube.
well, /a/non I think this show is stupid but I didn't drop it yet and probably won't because fan service.
With that said, it makes cringe a lot more than I'd care for.
I think your confusing character development with backstory.
>in order to like something you have to take it seriously
No, character development. Look it up if you don't understand it. Even Goku has developed more.
>/v/ is the place of entry level discussion.
That totally depends on what threads you use most.
this a stupid show pandering to sugar addicted man-children.
well, it got me.
That's what literally every Trigger/Gainax show is
>all of the characters outside of these main characters have no character development
>compare those side characters with these main characters
I know what character development is. You're very obviously confusing it if you think characters like Nonon or Inumuta had "character development".
And even still, a character isn't necessarily bad if it doesn't have character development.
I'm saying they DIDN'T have development. And they didn't.
Bullshit excuse. Judeau was plenty developed and he's a "side character".
>KLKfags claim to not taking this show seriously
Which is exactly why you had a shitstorm over your latest episode and can never stay in a single thread am I right?
No, you said all the characters outside Satsuki and Ryuuko have had literally only a few minutes worth of character development.
>KLK is a fun anime and only fat virgins with "taste" complain about it
>If you play video games, then you shouldn't watch anime.
That is how stupid you sound.
I didn't say anything about playing videogames. I said something about being a filthy, crossboarding /v/tard.
They're obnoxious, even worse than SnK fags. When Ryuko got her heart torn out they had literally over a dozen threads of the same picture.
I think its a fun show but, there is better out there. Although the moment it gets dubbed and played on Toonami /co/ is going to lose its shit.
You know, you don't have to browse that shithole to play games.
like the show, despise the idiots it brought here. now i have to keep it filtered.
i've had entire episodes spoiled because you crossboarding scum can't keep your mouths shut. you're always opening threads, despite all the open threads, and you always put spoilers in the opening post. fuck all of you.
What's with /a/ and your hatred of /v/. WTF did we do to you guys? All we do is talk about games while you guys obsess over your waifus.
You guys mistake us for the nazis of /pol/. We aren't like them contrary to what you guys think.
>All we do is talk about games
Yes, all the threads are one bug ruse.
This is bait.
Here's a protip from someone that has been on /a/ for years, don't fucking go on /a/ if you haven't watched your daily anime. Spoiling happens all the time and it's not just "cross-boarders" or whatever ridiculous boogeyman you're imagining. If you're on /a/ and a new episode has come out that you haven't seen, expect to get spoiled. If you're on /a/ and you're in a thread related to finished series that you haven't completed, expect to get spoiled. That's just how shit is.
Quit trying to imitate me, please.
I think the reason a lot of people don't like the show or "get" why others like it is because not enough people have on this board have read any manga by Go Nagai (Who , might I add, Imaishi is a huge fan of). Go read Cutie Honey or Violence Jack or something then maybe you'll start to "get" it.
Seriously this is to old violent battle mangas as Gurren Lagann was to old hotblooded super robot shows. it's one big homage.
>Judeau was plenty developed
In a fucking manga that has over 7000 pages in total.
Jesus christ, it's like you want KlK to be a 8 cour anime just so that all the characters are properly fleshed out.
I take everything I enjoy seriously.
If they don't enjoy this, they certainly won't enjoy that.
It's not about enjoying things you filthy plebe
We did that with TTGL and we fucking loved it in the end. Stop being so Tsun /a/
>It's not about enjoying things
But it is the mark of a pleb that he does things because other people enjoy them.
I was trying to make a joke but whatever... you just... forget it.
Sorry anon. Its difficult to tell sometimes.
I like it a lot. It's about as fun as TTGL was when it came out, but with more plot and backstory.
I think ep 6, 7 and 11 are all good examples of what the chart should be like.
The reason the GL chart works so well is because each one basically is the one event that you remember from each episode no matter what, and in turn summarizes each episode.
That being said, KLK isn't GL as GL was certainly more straightforward from episode to episode.
>Does /a/ really like this show or are all of you being ironic?
Yes a lot of /a/ does actually like it. It's a pretty good show.
>I can't really take this show seriously
It's literally GAINAX the show at this point, so I can't blame you, but I also don't think it was ever mean to be taken that seriously until the past few episodes.
Because /a/ is tsundere for /v/
TTGL's final episode is what made the show for me so I'll wait for KlK to finish before judgment.
>Yes a lot of /a/ does actually like it. It's a pretty good show.
Its not a good show. Stop saying it is.
>It's literally GAINAX the show
Nope. At least GAINAX has plot not just fucking shouting.
You'd fit right in my friend.
Yesterday's episode got a sticky. That episode was neither a premier nor a finale.
Yes, /a/ likes this show.
>Show is popular on /a/
>Buttpained autists cannot stand that people like something they don't like
>Threads upon threads of shitposting accusing each other of having shit taste
>B-but the casuals will come in if we don't shitpost about this show all the time ;_;
>B-but they're just moefags ;_:
holy shit, just shut the fuck up and enjoy the things you like to enjoy
and ttgl wasnt absolute formulaic shit either, so theres that
please dont even compare gunbuster and KLK. infact, comparing KLK to any of gainaxs good shows is a disgrace. just stop
>TGL episode 9
Yep that's what I dropped that piece of shit. Nia was too much of a autistic cunt for me to continue.
If anything is popular, people will dismiss its detractors as hipsters even if they raise valid points. However, KLK really is just about total shit. First, the characters are garbage. Ragyo (the primary antagonist) is using aliens to destroy the human race, and justifies it with nonsensical platitudes about clothes. Nui is childish psycho archetype, Ryuko is an accent with a rebellious streak, Mako is ADHD genki, and Satsuki is a boring hard ass. The only reason people don't bitch about KLK's characters is because it's filled with women.
Also, the action scenes are riddled with asspulls and never manage to be clever the way some scenes from YYH or HXH do, making it a fairly poor shounen. Finally, except for the alien and thrown away Ryuko twists, it's been predictable and the first fourteen episodes went at a sloth-like pace. I find it bizarre that this show is as popular as it is, and if it weren't for the director and female cast, /a/ would call it shounenshit and ignore it.
>comparing KLK to any of gainaxs good shows
Which is why they compared it to Gunbuster.
>not putting a space between paragraphs
You expect me to read all that shit?

There. I'm sorry.
I enjoy it.
Satsuki is a nice lady and I like that Blumenkranz song. I enjoy some of the humor as well.
>I can't really take this show seriously
You're not really supposed to, at least not most of the time.
Like Gintama. It does take itself seriously from time to time, but otherwise its just laughs and fightan.
Because gaming went mainstream.
Thereby introducing a massive flux of retards
/v/ got a raging hateboner for all things nihongo, and so it was only natural /a/ and /v/ got shirty with each other.
It's been repeating the same jokes for fifteen episodes (sparkly nipples, Mako's gobblygook, etc.)
I think you have to take the show at least a little seriously to really like it. By that I mean you have to at least care about the characters, their motivations, and what happens to them. Even pure gag comedies have their genuine moments. If you don't take it seriously at all then you aren't invested in it.
Maybe you should watch Eotena Onslaught
/a/ looks at /v/ and sees their reflection, so /a/ tries to ignore the glaring truth
I was expecting to see that scene used, the one where Nonon blasted Nue into wall with other devas taking friendly fire and roasted
I agree with what you said, but dropped it at episode 11 for the same reasons. Good to see I'm not missing much.
Why do people say it's predictable when almost nobody was able to predict most anything.
Because people have been speculating absolutely everything that's possible to speculate about, and they get really confident when their blind guess happens to become correct.
/v/ has become utterly non-elitist and it has suffered greatly for it. /a/ spews hatred at /v/ simply as a defensive reaction, to keep /a/ uncontaminated for as long as possible.
Some twists, like Satsuki's betrayal, were pretty predictable. Others, like aliens and hidden Nui, were pretty surprising. Still, I could hardly imagine watching it for the plot.
Do you actually not enjoy Kill la Kill? Or do you just not "like" it?
I enjoyed episodes 1 and 18. Other than that, no.
why is episide 4 so best
>no punctuation or capitalization
You'll go far, kid.
those same neckbeards don't understand that what makes a show good is what it sets out to do. KLK doesn't take itself seriously and it knows that and it's for fun. It's not trying to tell a riveting narrative, it's just trying to entertain, and it does a damn good job and if you don't think so then you're an idiot.
What does Kill la Kill do well, other than set low standards?
Oh man you cant take a show about alien life fibers coming to earth and living as parasites in our clothes seriously. What are we going to do to please you?
Anime shows rarely are serious like a HBO drama show. Just switch medium if you dont like it.
>It's not trying to tell a riveting narrative
Fuck your shit, troll.
What anime are you supposed to "take seriously?"
KLK confirmed for doing nothing well.
Entertain. You know, that's a part of what fiction and cartoons are for.
Everyone expecting 2deep4me shit need to off themselves for taking entertainment seriously in the first place.
>shit action scenes
How does anyone like this? Why do you enjoy it? It seems no more stimulating than a brick wall.
>I can't really take this show seriously
Are you familiar with videogames like Devil May Cry, Bayonetta, or Metal Gear Rising? KLK is like them. It's over the top, and energetic, but it can get serious without losing its playful charm.
>i like kill la kill cuz it's lolsorandum too cool to care.
>I have high standards for ultimately worthless tv shows. I'm smart.
Are you American? Because they are the only people who feel having good taste in worthless shit is admirable and take entertainment THAT seriously.
You know, you could have just called me a faggot instead of assuming nationality affects whether or not somebody's a hipster.
Yeah, I like fun.
