KILL LA KILL ep10: Prince Know-it-All & Princess Death-from-Above

December 8, 2013 4 comments

You know I was about to say that this was the most disappointing episode of the series so far for me, but I jumped the gun a bit. This definitely a transitional episode with much more insanity waiting. And to say that I’m disappointed is to show how spoiled I’ve become by the previous episodes.  Gifted with the exquisite violence and perviness, there’s nothing more you could ask from this show. It’s doing its damnedest to entertain.  I really shouldn’t be complaining when I can experience the joy of watching high schoolers fight to death for love, revenge and the right to wear fancy swagalious uniforms.  Try finding that on Netflix!

KILL LA KILL ep9: the Double Standard of Stripper Gear versus Gimp Suits

The grandest of displays of resolve can turn into mere arrogance at the drop of a hat. That I suppose is the lesson to be learned from this episode. Though regardless of the results, I will say I’m impressed by the sheer will of a man to take such punishment on willingly. I just wish he’d keep that kinkiness to his own private bedroom.

KILL LA KILL eps 7 & 8: you’ll never be satisfied with mere victory and happiness.

My deepest apologies for the hold up.  Even one week without anime is too long.  And I’m not wasting any time getting back in the saddle and catching up.  And there’s no better show out right now to motivate me and imbue me with the energy to watch a “butt-ton” of anime than KILL LA KILL.  Let’s do this!

KILL LA KILL ep6: the beauty of defeat and the ugliness of shame

November 10, 2013 5 comments

That was a fun and beautiful episode, and somewhat ridiculous. But it’s all very fitting for this show. A show that revels in being as over the top and beautiful as it can possibly be. And what I love most about this is that it’s just showing that we’ve only scratched the surface of what is capable of presenting. Nothing is wasted in this show, in the pursuit of beauty.  The beauty of a man’s goals, dreams and drive.  And I suppose beauty can also mean dudes getting naked and sweaty for the ladies.  Hey, I said this episode was fun and beautiful.  I never mentioned classy.

There’s no doubt that KILL LA KILL is Ryuuko Matoi’s anime. She’s the star, the focus, the gravity that holds this show together. Without her, I couldn’t imagine how this story progresses.  But every now and then you get a character or performance that can totally and utterly overshadow the star. In anime terms, you could think of such characters as Kamiya (TENGEN TOPPA GURREN LAGANN), Sesshoumaru (InuYasha), Kenpachi (Bleach), L (Death Note) and so on. Uzu Sanageyama’s performance doesn’t necessarily reach those levels, and he’s only shined for this one episode, but it’s one hell of an episode! Read more…

KILL LA KILL ep5: Nudists vs. Exhibitionists!

Something interesting came to mind when watching this episode.  How does it strike a female viewer or the character in a show when a guy tells you to disrobe “for your own good”?  Maybe it’s the crazy, hyper-sensitive atmosphere of America and its politics that has me thinking this way.  But I can only imagine what kind of firestorm some of these scenes would cause if exposed to the wrong people.  That said, I’m glad none of those idiots are watching this show right now!  Ha ha!  So screw them and their tiny brains!  I’m here to watch some damn good anime!

KILL LA KILL ep4: sometimes I just want to watch a good cartoon.

It doesn’t have to make sense. It doesn’t have to have a point. And no message is necessarily required. When do these rules apply? When all a show sets out to do is entertain me and make me laugh. Read more…

KILL LA KILL ep3: is proof that you’re doing it wrong!

October 19, 2013 3 comments

Through just three episodes, I’ve found myself utterly satisfied with this show in just about every aspect. Everything is literal and on display; the blood, the guts and the pride are all there on tremendous display. and now even the most embarrassing aspect of the show has been held up in glorious display to the world as an actual aspiration to all. Is there any defeating this show?! Read more…

KILL LA KILL ep2!!: vagabond, drifter, coward and stripper

October 12, 2013 2 comments

Uh… I didn’t really think this through. I got all hyped for this show, but the problem is talking about it and not screaming the entire time (figuratively of course). Also, how do you describe a show this stupid? Bah! Let’s just get on with this. My memories of this show will fuel my desire to write. Read more…
