So, now that time has passed and HYPE LA HYPE is no longer a meme, what did you think of KLK?
Also, what would a good sequel series entail?
Kill la Kill is the kind of show I love so much I am willing to ignore its shortcomings, even if there are many of them. I still rewatch it about every half a year.
While the OVA was meh it really gave closure to the story, so I don't think a sequel would be a good idea.
I hope Imaishi makes a new show soon though.
Satsuki should've joined the final fight goddamn it
>anyway, Ryuko's life fibers futadick belongs to Senketsu
There, I fixed it for you. You're welcome.
I literally just finished this an hour ago. I had most of it guessed, but I don't even care it was just too good. Satsuki is clearly best girl.
I pulled a Shinji during the bath scene, I'm not even gonna lie.
It was substandard, had an awful contrived plot, had edge la edge the edgehog as the MC, and nothing we see is ever important. The show never pays off and left a bad taste in my mouth when the last episode dropped.
This is honestly Trigger's weakest work that still gets recognition.
i love nui and no one can stop me
I still love it, it was a great ride. I don't think it needs a second season, though. The story has ended already. Another series with a similar style would be awesome on the other hand.
It's hard to achieve an entertaining original these days, KLK did the job perfectly, You were always on the edge of your seat not knowing what might happen next.
I really enjoyed it on /a/ but the ending was so fucking tame and forgettable, It still annoys me they played it safe for an explosive show like KLK.
My opinion is still the same.
First half was great, it was sort of like a kung fu/action film.
I liked the brashness of the characters, their simple attitudes, the simple plot, it had this manly feel to it, putting effort and will into breaking walls so to speak.
The twist was expected/unexpected in it's own way.
And while it added depth to the plot, it wasn't necessarily anything amazing. It just was something more, and I would have enjoyed it had it remained what it was at the start.
The ending was alright, nothing special, the short epilogue at the end credits wasn't enough to make me feel like it all was cleared up.
I would have enjoyed a short set of ovas in SoL style, explore a bit of the sister's relationship, going to school like normal, rest of the gang, etc.
I know you're just shitposting but:
1. never claimed or implied I'm a triggerfag
2. I never complained about lack of SoL, I just answered OP's question of what I would like to see after what's been done already.
3. I'm not watching LWA, so I wouldn't know.
And even if I everything you implied was true, how is it wrong?
Maybe they want balance and they felt one had too little and one has too much? or maybe the style and intent of each series would have benefited from more of whatever shit they want?
The critique of one series doesn't extend and apply to a completely different one.
who cares. yawn, trigger another bitch ass studio with no aspirations
Come on chump! Gotta put some effort on your bait, geez
Man, Seeing Bayonetta on any anime reference makes me sad. Her anime sucked.
One one of the things I liked most of KLK is its, theatricality. How some of the scenes were presented were spectacular.
>One one of the things I liked most of KLK is its, theatricality
In one of the best episodes, 18, the fights were staged like if they were a fashion show.
Theatricality is all over the series, especially it ties together how both Satsuki and Ragyo present themselves.
The first time I watched the show, I shut it off halfway through the first episode when I saw Ryuko's outfit, I just thought the show was gonna be dumb trash
Then one day I just decided to randomly give it another shot, and man I don't know why I hated it first time around. It was super fun, had interesting characters, and I even liked the Ryuko/Mako implications in the end, I thought they were a cute couple. And I love the OST.
I would seriously rate it a 9 or 10/10. It's not flawless but I had so much fun watching it, during those last few episodes I literally wanted to cheer out loud at times because I was so pumped. I liked it even more than Guren Laggan
>what did you think of KLK?
it had its problems but I enjoyed it through and through.
Also Ryuko best girl.
>Also, what would a good sequel series entail?
No sequel, or if there's an absolute need for one, it's in the far future, with no recurring characters.
Their arcs are already done with.
>A child born of eyebrows, sweater-meat fiber schlong, and incest.
Would they be the worst parents or the best parents?
I'm firmly in the camp of "this does not need a sequel", but if I was forced to do some kinda follow up, I imagine it would either be a show set in the future or a movie.
A movie could basically do what episode 25 did, just give an additional adventure past the series. I don't especially like that because episode 25 really did finish stuff up nicely. However if they made episode 25 into a full 90 minute movie that might becool too
As for a series in the future, I can only see that working if they basically cut out the whole KLK cast except for maybe one cameo (like Satski or maybe Ryuko/Mako is an old lady maybe) but even then I couldn't really think of a decent story.
First part was really fun, second part was eeh
Ryuko is perfect
Who /ELECTRIC SHAMISEN INTENSIFIES/ here?
>Literally the greatest anime of the decade
Any anime that actually have a logical plot instead of "a big school that for no reason at all allows the students to beat each other, and for plot reasons the entire city revolves around it"
Satsuki is literally the only well written character in the show, and also the only one that's not super fucking annoying. If I ever rewatch it, I'll do it only for her. I didn't even like her at first, and I don't like girls so it's not her appearance either.
even motherfucking Youjo Senki has a plot that actually makes sense, even if the sense is "God is a troll". But seriously, just get any other non-retarded anime... which is surprisingly hard on that last decade.
>"a big school that for no reason at all allows the students to beat each other, and for plot reasons the entire city revolves around it"
Christ why are KLK detractors always unable to follow even simple storytelling?
The city revolves around the school because both were built by the Kiryuin conglomerate in order to experiment with life fibers. And they are ones that allow everything that happens within the city because they own it.
Students still enroll there despite the risks because if you manage to climb the social ladder you're rewarded with incredible wealth and status.
Did anyone else feel really bad when
He was my favorite character. I watched kill la kill for the first time last month, and I felt really bad for like a whole week after watching the last episode.
>that one doujin where Gamagoori "helps out" with Satsuki's butt problems
>both were built by the Kiryuin conglomerate in order to experiment with life fibers
then why not build a goddamn military academy if you want to experiment a weapon? why not send it to actual war? why not test it yourself in a room instead of creating a GODDAMN CITY to do that? that has no economical sense.
>Students still enroll there despite the risks because if you manage to climb the social ladder you're rewarded with incredible wealth and status
and on top of that you're wasting money creating an artificial wealth/upper class instead of.. well, just testing the thing yourself.
It sucked, it felt really forced even when Imaishi end didn't become law.
Senketsu literally gives a self-actualization speech like 10 minutes before it happens.
Because the experiments were specifically about the resistance of teenagers to the subjugation from life fibers. Young people are harder to control so the system was invented to get them hooked on them with power and money. Then of course Satsuki took advantage of all of this to create her personal army.
Have you even watched the show or only the first episode?
>The city revolves around the school because both were built by the Kiryuin conglomerate in order to experiment with life fibers. And they are ones that allow everything that happens within the city because they own it.
>Students still enroll there despite the risks because if you manage to climb the social ladder you're rewarded with incredible wealth and status.
I think given the option between the show wanting something ridiculous to happen unimpeded thus using excuses to do so, and the show having the ridiculous thing still happen but with the ramifications shown, I would prefer the latter. Actually I wouldn't even mind the former if the excuses were elaborated and developed on, encouraging world-building, rather than just being handwaves. The attitude of a writer that gets asked an interesting question and responds with nothing that gets explored in the series, or worse yet responds by chiding the questioner for being invested in the series, is obnoxious as hell.
>No, that just bogs down everything with needless explanation.
That's not what I meant. I mean if you want your show to be about teenagers killing each other then alright, but putting up a magic plot barrier to stop their parents or the police or other parties having agency in that seems kind of immature as a writer. Like you're limiting yourself with the kind of material you can come up with in that kind of scenario, or you're doing it because it's like a railroaded roleplaying campaign where you actually can't conceive what might happen outside of stock anime or your own limited life experience.
It was good. Like a 7-8/10, could've been better condensed, but it has best girl so that makes it a 10/10 in my heart.
>you've been protecting this smile for 3 years
I wouldn't mind if they did something like NGE and just gave us different AUs with the same characters.
I really liked all of them, I just don't see how they could go forward even if they wanted to.
>teenagers killing each other
Nobody kills anyone.
>putting up a magic plot barrier to stop their parents
If anything the parents being the ones pushing their children to climb the ladder of that hellish academy in order to gain wealth and status is a really specific jab at the pressure the parents put on their children in Japan to ruthlessly compete academically to not disgrace the family.
But your position makes little sense. In the world of KLK teenagers are able to shoot KI blasts, schools fight against each others with bizarre weapons and and gangs of delinquents travel through the countryside looking for stronger opponents. In this world the existence of Honnoji and its social experiment isn't weird at all. Would you criticize Utena for the same reasons?
>Because the experiments were specifically about the resistance of teenagers to the subjugation from life fibers
your point is? that literally brings none of the points down. They can still test it in any other kind of controlled enviroment, or just start a military academy, which is still a thing and may even make young people easier to control.
Just saying a show about people burning money to do retarded shit is not good.
>what did you think of KLK?
Trademark Trigger obnoxious yelling characters and wildly inconsistent animation. Forced myself to finish watching it. 6/10.
>Also, what would a good sequel series entail?
There not being one.
>They can still test it in any other kind of controlled enviroment, or just start a military academy, which is still a thing and may even make young people easier to control.
As I said the point was TRICKING young people normally defiant of authority in falling under control. A military academy or overt experiments were people were aware and willing would have been pointless.
the actual best girl
>the point was TRICKING young people normally defiant of authority in falling under control
That makes even less sense
>A military academy or overt experiments were people were aware and willing would have been pointless
they ARE willing in that school as well. They can literally just drop out if they want.
>That makes even less sense
Maybe you should try watching the show.
>they ARE willing in that school as well. They can literally just drop out if they want.
They are in for the money and power. The loss of freedom, identity and resistance to life fibers is what they didn't sign for. Watch episode 7.
Don't we have this thread once or twice a week?
I annoyed by the fact that Satsuki's and Ryuuko's boobs didn't have any nipples.
>Maybe you should try watching the show
"maybe you should watch shit to know it's shit"
i saw 10 episodes. It was enough. If even you cannot explain how that bullshit works, it's enough.
>The loss of freedom, identity and resistance to life fibers is what they didn't sign for
It is, as they know exactly what is going on.
it's from a fanfic autist on deviant art
transformers shit, evil alien satsuki, Kal-Karot (Goku+Supes fusion) being some faceless deity, etc.
Hell no. KLK was outstanding in terms of art and action, but TTGL blows it out of the water in terms of plot (in particular Anti-Spiral and Lord Genome were more menacing villains than Satsuki and Ragyo) and perhaps more notably, Simon's character had much more evolution over time (eg, wimpy and beta to badass). Ryuko was basically the same character during the entire series.
Does anyone else think that KLK goes from fun to turd about half-way through?
Like, right around the time they explain the backstory and there stops being any new reveals or cuh-razy shit. It pretty much plateaus and the novelty wears off.
I don't think it's terribly fair to compare them like that. They're both counterpoints to the darker iterations of their genre - TTGL is the diametric opposite of NGE and you should compare Simon with Shinji if anyone at all.
That said, watching Ryuko cool her heart and Satsuki warm hers up was very enjoyable, at least to me.
You're not wrong, but I still loved the return of banchou Mako followed by a cut to credits. I'm a sucker for that stuff.
>Only Satsuki, Iori and the devas know what the life fibers really are
you can just 'not tell people' what it really is in any other kind of enviroment to the same effect. Your point?
"you didn't see the shit until the end, so you don't know for sure if it's shit"
So let me get this straight: i show a very reasonable argument (that shit could be done in ANY other more practical way), and your argument is that "there is something you don't know about the show in", without actually explaining what it is.
>Anti-Spiral and Lord Genome were more menacing villains
Are you fucking kidding? Their plans were pants-on-head retarded. Satsuki wasn't really a villain, and Ragyo, at the very least, was theatrical and absolute in her sheer despicability.
>Simon's character had much more evolution over time (eg, wimpy and beta to badass)
That was the only development he had. While Ryuko is generally static, her discovery of sense of self, as well as her more multi-faceted personality, makes her a better protagonist.
You're trying to pick apart a series, despite admitting that you don't know what you're talking about in the slightest.
You are an arrogant fool and I will pay you no attention any longer.
I love Kill la Kill for one, very stupid reason.
In the first episode I thought to myself "Ryuko and Mako sure do make a cute couple" and by the end of the series they actually sorta kinda confirm that ship. I just like that pairing.
>despite admitting that you don't know what you're talking about in the slightest
>watching 10 episodes
How much of that shit exactly you want me to watch so i can say it's objectively shit?
oh, and again, you don't make an actual argument as to why i am wrong. If it's so simple for somoene like you, that saw everything, so why aren't you pointing out where i'm wrong?
The only new Ryuko fig is her bunny suit.
i think mikisugi served that role much better. all his scenes with ryuko are top quality with the innuendo. hes the goober, and the serious one is tsumugu. i don't think mako has any narrative purpose other than to waste 30 seconds worth of frames every episode.
but its so fucking deadpan. its predictable. its anti-nui and believe me, i hated nui too because you had a entity that defied logi. all the choreography regarding the fights is thrown out the window when nui is introduced. nui and mako are dull one dimensional characters and deserve far less screentime.
Good start on to a pretty shitty middle bit and then a pretty ok ending is how I understood it.
Too many episodes just felt like there wasn't an consequence behind the conflict which made everything feel kinda limp until Satsuki does her betrayal thing.
So, according to Studio Trigger, here are the canon couples, translated from the interview:
Ryuko x Sanageyama
Satsuki x Takarada (she is his ugly trophy wife)
Nonon x Inumuta
Mako x Gamagori
What would you do to this ass, /a/?
Nigga you think fiber will help? She looks like she ate a bunch of military rations and literally doesn't have the strength to push them out. Hook up the bitch with some laxatives and if it's really bad
stick it up her butt to break up the log
Does anyone have that link to that doujinshi about Gamagori has trouble focusing on his duties because he's lusting after Satsuki. In the end, Satsuki forces him to jerk off in front of her; she gets tired of his hesitation and starts to stomp on his junk and he comes.
Yeah, about that
>That was the only development he had. While Ryuko is generally static, her discovery of sense of self, as well as her more multi-faceted personality, makes her a better protagonist
This. I love TTGL but Simon's development never clicked with me. It was cool when he re-emerged as a brave boy and accepted Kamina's death but after the timeskip he felt so forced when trying to be cool or inspirational, something about his way doing the whole "brigade leader" schtick felt odd and out of place.
As you said Ryuuko may be more simple but her development felt much more organic.
I didn't hate it like everyone else, but it is a very real problem where an Aniplex series loses its focus and luster in the second cour for whatever reason. Fate/Zero, UBW, A/Z and KlK all make serious missteps after a solid first half. The Fate series suffer from pacing and animation issues while the original works expose the fact that they were just making it up as they went and had no real idea of how to end things. Gurren Lagann probably just got lucky, since the second cour for that was also nothing like the first.
Can I be completely honest here? I know this might make me a faggot or something, but my favorite part of this figure is her hair. It looks so god damn amazing!
Seems like someone keeps trying to force this shitty anime back into conversation, where the most intelligent conversation consist only "RYUKO IS BEST GIRL" vs "SASTUKI BEST GIRL"
That and TTGL shitposting.
Please stop trying to resurrect this dead meme.
>Seems like someone keeps trying to force this shitty anime back into conversation, where the most intelligent conversation consist only "X IS BEST GIRL" vs "Y BEST GIRL"
Who would've gained weight and why should it be
You are a bad man
need someone here to post THE perfect ryuko image
Retards shouldn't be this cute
It was a really good show with a great style that made it feel unique.
The soundtrack is what made this show. The show had its ups and downs but the soundtrack kept us pumped. It was quite the experience watching it with /a/ every week. The specula threads. Still seeing OC specula images I made all that time about getting occasionally posted brings back good memories.
I didn't mean for this to turn into a blog post but thanks for enjoying this with me anons.
The series was entirely sustained on hype. Like game of thrones, when you take the 'hype' and peer discussion out of it there's nothing left. It's just trash.
A good sequel would require trigger to be a good studio which isn't happening any time soon. I am super surprised they haven't fucked up LWA. God bless them, I hope they never do.
Best Ryuko merch is the limited edition RAH. Too bad it's going for about $800 these days.
Great taste, Nui is the epitome of the cute
It's extremely overrated. The characters are okay and the fanservice is good but overall it doesn't bring anything new to the table. In the end it seems to rely on a lot of cliches. Shit man, that last episode where Ragyo and Ryuko were fighting in space for no good reason and Ryuko was going on and on about the human spirit was so fucking gurren lagann. It was almost awful.
>So, now that time has passed and HYPE LA HYPE is no longer a meme, what did you think of KLK?
It was cool and fun.
>Also, what would a good sequel series entail?
I think I'd like to see them have to deal with a life fiber universe tearing holes in the fabric of reality to send life fiber warriors all over random locations around the world. Nui is slowly converted into a good guy over the course of the season by seeing the effects of the life fiber war on her entertainment/friends.
Mako is NuiWhen all seems lost during the climactic battle, warriors who have liberated themselves from life fibers elsewhere show up to lend a hand and these are characters from other Trigger show or drawn to resemble pop icons.
Novel != Good
It executed well on what it did. Was it perfect? No, but it was close. The only thing it needs now is a second season with a time skip, just like TTGL.
It's not like they didn't purposely leave things open ended to continue.
I still wonder why didn't Ryuuko inherit the big brows, I'm almost certain it's a dominant gene.
See I thought that they ended Kill la Kill in such a way that a sequel or season 2 would feel very forced. I mean heck that end of episode 25 where the scissors sink into the ocean was pretty final for me at least. Not that a sequel would be impossible or even unwanted, it's just that it seems to me designed to be self-contained.
See this shit is why I loved Mako so much
It all depends on how they choose to do it. I don't necessarily want a sequel, but I felt like they gave it the kind of ending where they can walk away or revisit it in a few years.
In case you didn't notice that pic is edited and this is the original, I must say that the big eyebrows suit her very well.
>was /a/ really surprised that they were related?
The eye/hair shade made me suspicious but I dismissed that because I thought it would be lame to make them sisters, huh.
fuck off bushy brows
dont even recall david being poseable
Not him but I always found posable figures, or at least ones with highly visible joints, to be kinda pointless since it's not like you're a kid playing with a G.I Joe, chances are these things are just going to sit on a shelf looking pretty.
I don't trust myself to not break them. Granted, I change my figma's poses every few weeks, but if that Ryuko is as expensive as that anon claims it is, I wouldn't even take it out of the box.
I know what I'm blowing May's paycheck on.
KLK was one of those shows that was great on it's own, but watching it with /a/ was the best way to watch it. All of the shitposting, the freaking out after every episode, the urgency to be in the live streams when it started, there was nothing like it. As far as the show, it was a fun ride and it would take alot to recreate the madness it caused here on /a/.
It's the same "I WAS JUST PRETENDING TO BE RETARDED" garbage that trigger shits out every season. I can't even look at inferno cop the same way now that Trigger has ruined it by constantly trying to recreate it with the comedic timing of it being short.
i fucking hate studios that pull this shit. if you dont want to be serious, make a childrens show instead of baiting us with mako and nui behaving like autistic children playing in traffic
