Evangelion is the exact opposite. It started off with a monster-of-the-week thing that was going nowhere, and evolved into a pretty good layered story with a great climax (EoE)

Kill La Kill was about how clothing (including uniforms, fashion, etc...) dominates identity in society and is effectively a means of control and oppression.

Ryuko spent the first half thinking she was better than all this shit without realizing there was more going on. During the second half she spent the entire time trying to come to terms with the fact that her and Senketsu were products of the entire conspiracy and thus complicit in it. In order to overcome the enemy she must first overcome herself and all that that entails.

Shingeki no Kyojin. Seriously, the story in the manga is retarded.

Kiznaiver also had an incredibly bad sense of direction. Not to mention all of the characters that were important to the plot were completely uninteresting compared to the supporting cast that didn't really matter.
>>
>>158683352
it was kinda about fashion for the first 9 episodes which is the best part of the series, but after the 'battle royale' started, it was the beginning of the end and just turned into the big conspiracy for the rest of the way.

kinda weird how the second opening had the emphasis on fashion with the catwalk, show spotlights, and the montage of all the characters in their different outfits.

the fashion theme never really developed that far that it was a central point of the entire show.

Jormungand peaked around episode 4. It had this great episodic feel to it and the action scenes were well done, along with the right amount of feels. The S1 finale was a bit of a let down, as they should have killed off a certain character and ended it as a tragedy. Season 2 just lacked all the magic of season 1, they skewed away from the day to day arms dealing and operations to some BS grand scheme.

It had some glimmer of hope at the end of ep 22 but the finale was hot garbage

>>158683641
The conspiracy is that all clothing on earth is actually a parasite that has guided mankind's evolution since the dawn of time and in doing so has altered man to the point where it has a desire to wear clothing thereby being subservient and complicit in their enslavement. All forms of clothing are made of this parasite but fashion and uniforms in general grant wearers wearers more power over their peers even if it undermines their humanity to wear them (e.g. is embarrassing).

Towards the end of the series humans are being mind controlled by the clothing and their final plan is to put clothing on the planet itself.

There's also what the director said:
>According to director Imaishi, much of the plot is based on his observation that the Japanese manner of pronouncing "fascio" (ファッショ fassho) is nearly the same as the word "fashion" (ファッション fasshon), his observation that the pronunciation of the Japanese words "school uniform" (制服 seifuku) and "conquest" (征服 seifuku) are identical, and that the titular kiru may mean "kill" (キル), "to cut" (切る), or "to wear" (着る).[10]

Rewatch it, anon. I marathon-ed the series and the fashion=fascism theme was very front and center throughout the series. Right down to the nudist rebels.
>>
>>158682317
>and evolved into a pretty good layered story
Dude what? It became a clusterfuck after Shinji got absorbed into Eva, and they had to pretty much make an extra "ending" because people didnt understand the original one.
>>
>>158683995
i watched the show, i know what the conspiracy entailed.

I'm just saying, from episodes 10-26 it was more about alien life fibers taking the form of clothing conspiring to take over the world rather than fashion or the school setting. we see every single piece of fashion the show has to offer by episode 13/14 barring the mark 3 blade regalia and mark 2 symphony, scourge, and probe regalia.

the fact that pretty much every single episode from 10 to 25 had at least 1 serious plot hole that never gets explained is a testament that the direction of the show kinda lost its way. From both a plot, AND fashion theme perspective.

thats not to say that the fashion theme was entirely bad or devoid of substance. Ragyo raping Satsuki to make her feel compelled to wear clothing to hide the shame/guilt that rape survivors feel was a great touch.
>>
>>158684057
It literally was about female maturation though.
>>
>>158684211
>and they had to pretty much make an extra "ending" because people didnt understand the original one.

Its been confirmed countless times that episodes 25 and 26 wewre made because they ran out of money and time.

End of Evangelion is and always will be the true canonical ending according to the fans and creators of the show.

>fashion=facism
>the end of the series is ryuko, satsuki, and mako going shopping and trying on fashionable clothes all day

A Trigger show that throws caution to the wind and charges forward at full speed will be bound to have its share of "plot holes". Granted they are only really plot holes from the perspective of a reasonable person who isn't fully driven by passion.

Gate for sure.

The concept is outfuckingstanding but I could not believe how much they failed at it.

KLK should have had 2 seasons. First season is entirely the school setting/plotlines, the second season could be the Battle Royale, Tri School Raid, and the rest of the Nudist Beach vs Ragyo saga.

>>The concept is outfuckingstanding

Is it?

A modern military gunning down a bunch of losers with swords is the only reasonable direction that could go
>>
>>158685570
>Is it?
Well yeah, having a completely asymmetrical conflict where you have modern technology going up against technology from over 700 years ago and fucking MAGIC could be very interesting.

I'm not narrowing it down to centurions being dropped with 5.56 from a couple people a few hundred meters away.
>>
>>158685652
That'd always be a one sided fight, either the magic is OP or not good enough to make up for a modern military.

The Elite 4 should have had more development as far as why they joined Satsuki and why they ended up being so loyal to her that they would blind themselves or commit Seppuku for failing her.

Ira, Hacker Guy, and Uzu basically were just recruited with "YOU'RE STRONG, JOIN MY CAUSE". And that was the extent of their past we were given.
