Why does this show get so much praise despite being objectively shit? is it because everyone on /a/ is 16 year olds with less than 100 shows under their belt? why is it that the people who are part of the trinity of shit taste (KLK - AoT - Chuunibyou) generally have a really dry sense of humor which mostly consists of doge and feels? how is emotional immaturity connected to having bad taste in shows?

I have so many questions /a/

Because it's fun

>>102190940
I dislike both Chuunibyou and SnK, yet I find KlK fun. It doesn't have to be objectively a masterpiece or anything to be discussed so much.

It's fun and has a fair amount of depth.

I think it's mildly entertaining at times. I've never thought it was great. I have no opinion on Chuu2, but I'd agree that AoT is one of the most horridly written garbage I've had the displeasure of reading and watching.

Only newfags say it's "saving anime."

Well, I certainly would applaud anyone wanting to watch 100 anime shows, but take it from this old weaboo rat, I've spent my entire adult life watching superior western animation, and a program like Kill la Kill can do more harm than good.
If you only train one part of your t.v. watching (and that's all a single crazy show like Kill la Kill is going to do for you), you're setting yourself up for injuries down the road. I've seen it a hundred times.
It's like putting a powerful engine in a stock Toyota Tercel. What will you accomplish? You'll blow out the drive train, the clutch, the transmission, etc., because those factory parts aren't designed to handle the power of an engine much more powerful than the factory installed engine.
Watching anime is basically only training the brain muscles and to some extent, the tinfoil hats. What you really want to do is train your entire studies, all the major animation groups (western, anime, reality, and documentaries) at the same time, over the course of many years. And don't forget your facts and opinions work!
I'm proud of you guys wanting to do this. Three cheers! Falling in love with anime, watching t.v. right, etc., is one of the greatest things you can do for yourself. And you WILL fall in love with it if you can just force yourself to stick with it a year or two and experience the amazing progress you'll make.
But do it right, okay?
My advice, find a good anime board(not /a/), with qualified experts who will watch shows with you (especially in the beginning, until you get the hang of it yourself) and guide you in your quest for euphoria. Three to five hours a day, 6 days a week, is all you'll ever need to do (I refuse to believe anyone is so busy that he or she cannot make time for that, especially considering how important it is BECAUSE FUCK YOU)

>>102190940
Have you even seen the first episode?

At first, I was part of the "Shit la Shit, my taste is so objectively better"-crowd and refused to start watching it just because of the hype when it came out.

But then, about a moth ago, I was bored and needed to download some shit form my high-speed uni internet so I figured I might as well get this.

Then I watched the first episode and got a crush on Ryuuko.

Then I watched the second episode and I fell in love with Ryuuko. She is my waifu now.

Objectively, just because of Ryuuko alone, the show is fucking amazing. Ryuuko is the best girl in the history of anime. There was never a girl like Ryuuko, there will never be a girl like Ryuuko. I will never forget Ryuuko.

Plus, the soundtrack is A+, best soundtrack of the year. Sawano is a G O D.

"I LOVE SUSHI!" exclaimed the woman in the thick-rimmed glasses.
"Ah, excellent," Kobayashi thought contentedly to himself, "they are enjoying themselves."
"I love Japan, period" said the middle-aged man in the blue shirt, slight southern drawl lending a down-home earthiness to his earnest proclamation.
"Oh my, it is such a joy to have such enthusiastic customers!" Kobayashi said to himself, beaming with pride at the delight he had brought to his customers. It was an idyllic day in Kobayashi's small sushi shop. But, then things took a turn for the worst. "J-ROCK!" screeched a greasy-haired delinquent, quite obviously high on something.
"Oh my, someone should be watching over that poor child," Kobayashi thought to himself. But, before he could finish that thought, a rotund man burst forth from the masses, the make-up on his face still smeared across his fleshy visage.
"GIRUGAMESH!" the horrifying painted man exclaims, stabbing the air vehemtly with two massive, pudgy digits.

"What has begun here is something terrible," Kobayashi thinks to himself, rooted in place by equal parts fear, and morbid fascination.
"I LOVE ANIME!" shrieks a curiously toupee'd customer, the disparity of voice and adornment calling into question the beast's gender. "AND MANGA" yells the man-lady's back-quatto, the horrifying extra upper torso protruding from the hermaphrodite's back, malign intent dancing across his/her eyes. Kobayashi is speechless at the spectacle unfolding before him.
"AND GAYMEN!" an infernal scarecrow man drunkenly spews forth, every diabolical syllable dripping from his tongue an affront to sanity and dignity.

"Uh...DDR?," says a man quite plainly.
"Finally, a respite from this madness," Kobayashi thought as he heaved a breathless sigh of relief. But what he had seen so far could never prepare him for what came next.
"SMILE D.K." squealed the man's bloated pig-wife, barely managing to stay balanced atop her chair.
As these things happened, a realization dawned on poor, poor Kobayashi. "These people, these DEMONS, have taken all I know and love and made it wrong, corrupted it. I can not, no, I will not sit idly by as these creatures from beyond the veil wreak havoc in my shop

"HEYYYYYY!" Kobayashi growls, brandishing his knife like a modern day warrior. "SAKURA-CON HE IKIMAAAAAAAAAASU" he bellows, the traditional war-cry of his family. As Kobayashi leapt over the table, the gathered masses began morphing, face tearing asunder to reveal rows upon rows of sharp teeth, as new musculature rippled forth from beneath their clothes. Many dropped to all fours, revealing their true bestial nature, snarling and snapping their jaws at Kobayashi. Like a true warrior, however, he dove fearlessly into the throes of battle, slicing sinew and bone alike with a precision afforded him by his years of chef training. He laughed maniacally as bucket upon bucket of blood was spilled, the organs and flesh of his former patrons spewing forth like water down a hill. He and his restaurant alike were soon strewn with every type of viscera, and he gave an animalistic howl to the still-rising moon.
Kobayashi goose-stepped over the knee-high pile of cadavers, and, having finally exited the restaurant, he wiped the blood clean from his cleaver and strode off into the horizon. He knew that he had honored his ancestors with this true act of bravery, and helped to rid the world of a grave evil indeed.

I've been lurking here for a number of years. Rarely do I ever come across anything that makes me feel as though I need to respond. I think the last time I was forced to throw my 2 cents in was during the /v/ga. Now, this day, 2/16/2014 Once again I am called to type the captcha. I've seen some of the gayest and most retarded things on /v/. Like a primordial ooze of everything wrong with the human race, but you are literally the gayest fucking thing on this planet. Like a dragon dildo ejected from Ronald McDonald's ass at a speed somewhere between 40000-100000 miles per faggot you decended upon an otherwise normal thread. Spewing pure unfiltered homosexuality like a fire sprinkler system with a direct link to Richard Simmons asshole. Freddie Mercury is rolling in his fucking grave at the thought of you setting the bar so god damn high that no faggot for the rest of existence will be able to match your level.

now I must slumber once again.

Dropped KLK. And it was really, really average.
95% of the cast was completely unlike-able, the exceptions being Ragyo herself and Nui. The plot wasn't all that good, though it did have it's moments. The resolution was either extremely stupid or doesn't resolve much at all, depending on which you take.
That said, I didn't hate it. It was interesting enough to keep me watching, but it never wowed me or made me experience any emotion at all, for that matter. The sad moments never effected me, and the 'intense' moments made me go meh. Everything is pretty much forgettable.
Can somebody explain me why people hyped it so much? Because there's absolutely nothing special about it.

WHY KLK IS SUITED FOR CHILDREN AND IS OBJECTIVELY SHIT

-Bad CGI fights
-Basic babby tournament setting after the first episode with retarded power levels
-character's personalities are centered around their quirks (reminiscent of AoT)
-pacing is either going too fast or too slow with episodes being dragged out or possible interesting conflicts being ruined because of epic funny mako (take satsuki vs ryuko for example)
-OST isn't bad but it's nothing special (Uzu and Ryugo's theme songs being the only ones worth noting in my opinion)
-it's ugly, it looks like they were pushing 2 frames a second after episode 10 because they realized that their inept fanbase wouldn't notice
-It's not that much fun

WHY IT'S ACTUALLY NOT COMPLETE SHIT AND LANDS SOMEWHERE BETWEEN BELOW AVERAGE AND MEDIOCRE

-Good voice acting
-Tits and ass
-OST is above average
-Nonon
-Unique setting

100 shows is exactly how many anime tv series I've watched. Not counting currently airing/unfinished material.

How many shows does someone have to have under their belt before they can make statements like "Kill la Kill is a pretty damn good anime."?

Upsetting KLK fans is too easy, probably because they too agree with the fact that KLK is a pile of garbage but instead of accepting the undeniable truth that it's not special in any way they retort with anger and frustration, I can almost feel their anxiety.

I understand children, I honestly do and instead of bashing down on the one thing you have left in your empty lives I'll leave you with the illusion that KLK is not poo suited for children.

KLK is deep and fun, anime has been saved and no you do not need to watch more than 100 shows for your opinion to be worth something!

I will always love you no matter what.
