Kill La Kill
Episode 04 – Dawn of a Miserable Morning
This episode was a clear change from the previous episodes. Focusing on humor rather than the usually action oriented episode. While Senketsu is being washed and pressed by Maki’s mother. Ryoku learns of “No-Late Day”, an event where school student must navigate a complicated and danger obstacle course. Ryoku and Maki begin to make their way across the course where they encounter Maiko. Maiko was “injured” while attempting the course. Comically, Maki’s family all attempt to deliver Senketsu to Ryoku.
The girls hijack an armored bus to avoid the traps, a mother opens fire on them with a machine gun as she nurses. The manage to make it to school with 15 minutes to spare, however they are betrayed by Maiko. She reveals herself to be a member of ” the disciplinary committee” and steals Senketsu. She puts Senketsu on and manages to become immobile due to the starchiness of senketsu. Maiko sets off one final trap as she is defeat but Ryuko and Maki manage to get to school on time anyway. This episodes goal was simply to humor the audience and personally I think they succeeded.
- Mommy with Machine gun
- Maiko “Attempt at suicicde”
- Maki’s usual humor
