KILL LA KILL! ep20: bare-assed and angry

I have unfinished business to attend to. Before I can really move onto a full schedule of watching new anime, this must be complete. There’s no sense in playing around with a bunch of new unproven anime, when I still have just a few more episode of what may be a masterpiece in the end. The final stretch for KILL LA KILL.

KILL LA KILL ep19: face the fear of a world devoid of nudity

March 3, 2014 3 comments

If the previous episode was a knockout punch, then this episode is the ref’s countdown to see if the show’s protagonists can get off the mat in time. and by the end of the episode it’s clear that while the battle is not over, the good guys have weak legs and are disoriented. (Sorry, I’ve been watching a lot of Hajime no Ippo lately.)

I started this episode in a really dour mood.  Not only are all my favorite characters getting their asses kicked, but possibly the best character was gobbled up for good when the COVERS monsters caught Mako and ate her!

KILL LA KILL ep18: !!!!!

February 17, 2014 2 comments

This episode was like watching someone reach the summit, only to be grabbed by the balls and tossed all the way back down to the bottom! F*CK!

I was so ready to write something positive, but everything good that happened this episode was wiped away by the near godly hand of Ragyou Kiryuuin. I dare say that this episode had the most jarring power swing I’ve ever seen in an anime. And this looks like it could be a worse defeat than anything I’ve seen in any other anime. Every pinnacle was overshadowed, and any weakness became a glaring flaw for the world to see. Read more…

KILL LA KILL ep17: to violently disagree!

AH AHAHAHA!  Ryuuko wasn’t around for the interactions between Lady Satsuki and her mother.  So I understand her surprise.  But this shouldn’t come as one to anyone who has been viewing so far.  The relationship between Lady Satsuki and Lady Ragyou was so cold, and unfeeling that you just knew she wasn’t going along with what her mother said.  Honnouji Academy is a super serious place, but there’s no doubt they were preparing for war.

KILL LA KILL ep16: a product of your environment

Well, a new direction is what I was expecting. And it’s what we get.  It’s quite clear that there will be a renewed focus, and it’s not gonna be towards Ryuuko and Senketsu.

What I noticed a lot about this episode was how much more focus there was on Lady Satsuki’s vulnerability.   Read more…

KILL LA KILL ep15: it’s the asspocalypse! Run for your lives!!!

This episode was so good this week! *squeals!* Not only are we subjected to glowing nipples, epic displays of guts and GAR, and shown close to twenty minutes of non-stop chaos, but I finally get to see Nudist Beach pop up in earnest. And man, do they have some stupid, ugly mech designs. It’s absolutely hilarious! Read more…

KILL LA KILL ep14: make money, not war!

January 19, 2014 4 comments

I gotta say, KILL LA KILL makes war look GOOD! As exciting as this episodes was, it was just as funny to see all these puns, sight gags and stereotypes put to use. And all this is going on right in the middle of cities. Truly there’s no such thing as a strong federal government in the world of this show. The only thing more unstoppable than this chaos is Ryuuko’s desire to piece Senketsu back together. And the only thing more unstoppable than that is Mako’s desire to shove giant octopus balls in her face! Read more…
