Personally, I find the character designs themselves just fine in Kill la Kill. The getups, on the other hand, are... debatable. To me, they're OK for the most part, but again, the aesthetic aspects of animes don't much faze me either way. I can see them rubbing people the wrong way, though.Neko wrote:Funny, I haven'e seen any
In a sea of increasingly sterile character designs, I'm finding KLK very refreshing.
Oohh, so that's how those stadium seats were arranged in the earlier tournament. Glad to see at least this mystery solved .
It's cool to see Ryuko show more and more of the multi-faceted character hidden underneath her usual loud and foul-mouthed brashness. She's actually pretty reasonable and deeply caring when it comes to the Mankanshokus and particularly Senketsu.
Speaking of caring (Oh snap, I did it again - have a segue, why don'tcha?), it looks like selling out Mako for a plate of tasty food is A-OK for her parents. What a perfect picture of a loving family (Well, we pretty much knew what to expect from them since episode 7).
... aaand Mako herself is still sleeping through it all XD. I swear, nothing can shake that girl. (I mean, she challenged Gamagori to a fistfight... 'nuff said)
Nui's remark of how Satsuki and her mother were cut from the same cloth was quite an exquisite treat for your resident wordplay connaisseur (that's referring to me, if anyone was wondering). Once again, I wonder how the subbed version handled it.
And to wrap it up, we're presented what is probably the biggest plot twist in the series. Matricide for teh win! Ironically, striking down her own flesh and blood in a rather gory manner seems completely in character for Satsuki (Yes, that's another jab of mine. Did I mention yet that I don't like her ?).
