I don't get this stupid "Ryuko is edgy" meme.

If anything she seemed very level head and focused to me. She even hated being half naked.

Exactly, it's just something people repeat.

>>144362467
Frequently angry or disgruntled.
Motivated by revenge.
Vehemently anti-establishment.
Openly defiant of authority.
Violently rebellious.
Delinquent.

Edgy isn't bad by default. Her character was fitting in the context of the setting and story.

You just fucking repeated the same shit three times with different wording just to make your list of 'edgy' things longer.

Establishment refers to the system in power.
Authority refers to the people in power.
Violently rebellious refers to beating people up as opposed to peaceful protest.
>>
>>144362698
No, she's straight anarchist
>>
>>144362467
It's a joke that started because her coloring and backstory have remarkable similarities to Shadow the Hedgehog.
>>
>>144364021
I don't think that she has any political view. She just wants to find out who killed her dad.
>>
Edyuko is a dumb whore whose dialogue revolves around telling people she will kill them and she is independent

Hopefully anime voice actors will start using manlier sounding women so this slut can be forgotten like opm and akame kill

>>144380231
You're right, but she does have a lot of self doubt that becomes that self loathing.

Particularly, when Senketsu asks her if she's afraid of him and she tells him she's afraid of herself that would hurt him because she got angry. That's a recurring fear for her that boils over in the second half.
>>
>>144362467
If anything, I think there wasn't enough emphasis on her character development (going from edgy to laid back). Thus she sort of stayed the same. It was still good enough though.

I think for one its perpetuated by the english voice acting that she's a "badass bitch" (though I disagree too). But her fans that post with her as an avatar all tend to seem edgy. This is a case where its not the character but the fans. Like how Sonic himself isn't autistic but his fans are.

Kill la Kill is the worst anime I've ever seen. Entertaining, it was not. It's just a poor excuse for western cartoony physics and piss-poor fanservice. Trigger really dropped the ball on it.

Almost nothing makes her edgy. It's just an ignorant opinion.

Just tell me, what edgy qualities does Ryuko have? Like holy shit, she doesn't even fucking go around killing people. Yeah, she wanted to kill the person that killed her father, but the people she fights? She ust mainly strips them of their clothing. She only killed her mother, but she COMPLETELY lost her humanity at that point, so she couldn't even be called a true kill.

She isn't completely dark and brooding and emo-ish. Yes, she had a downer arc for a while after finding out that she's part life fiber, but she wasn't like that for the rest of the series. Her attitude is actually generally more upbeat than Shadow's was.

She wanted revenge, but could you blame her??? Someone killed her father. Most normal people take revenge on those who HURT their goddamn family members. Ever heard about a guy who was okay with their daughter getting killed or raped?

What's funny is that Nui is easily more edgy than Ryuko, yet because of her cutesy design, she is easily overlooked, and Ryuko is treated as the edgy one. People just think, "She reminds me of Shadow, so she's definitely edgy".

From my analysis, Ryuko is only about as "edgy" as Yusuke Urameshi. I really think it's her character design which pushes people into believing that she's edgy.
>>
I was fine with her until she went crazy after the revelation of her life fiber heart. There was no denying the edge after that
>>
>>144367711
>>144367849
Her eating a lemon is supposed to be foreshadowing of her Life-fibre nature, as Lemon juice is used traditionally to clean stains out of clothing.
>>
Ryuko is meant to look edgy on a surface level, as her backstory, look and the fact that she literally slits her wrists to power up are fucking edgy, but her personality actually simply is hot-blooded and almost never brooding
>>
>>144362467
>I don't get this stupid "Ryuko is edgy" meme.

Me neither. If you want an explanation for why it exists, OP, it's because Kill la Kill was extremely popular with /v/ermin. And since /v/ermin are the trash of society, they were 99.9% Shitsukifags, and since they couldn't handle the fact that Shitsuki is so shit compared to Ryuko (especially after it was revealed they are related), they constantly flung their shit at Ryuko.

The "Ryuko is edgy" thing is the worst testament of that - they were literally posting their favorite Sonic & other "video game" characters in the threads, when talking about how Ryuko is according to their inferior Shitsukifag minds.

Ragyo killed herself. Ryuko actually asked her to surrender peacefully.

That being said, because her rebellious nature was so colored by vengeance and her disgruntled/angry/bitchy attitude for the majority of the series, there's legitimacy in calling her edgy. There's also the whole "fuck the system" angle what with her rejection of Satsuki's fascist regime and her flippant attitude towards those in power.

On a final note, her being edgy isn't a bad thing. It's completely justified in context and she works very well as a protagonist in the show. Furthermore, it's only a part of her character, which provides a nice contrast to her lonely but kindhearted nature. They're not mutually exclusive.

You can oppose the system while respecting the individuals in power, or be content with the system while disliking the individuals in power.
