Satsuki and Ryuko exchange words before Satsuki and Senketsu transform. Satsuki synchronizes very quickly with Senketsu.

Kill 21.1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ryuko mocks Satsuki’s power, in response she uses Senketsu’s “Blade Flash” then Senketsu’s “Gale”. She then improvises and use a combination of the two, “Blade Gale”. Meanwhile, Nui is seen building something rather large with life fibers embedded within it.

Ryuko appear mildly damaged by Satsuki’s attack, she mocks Senketsu’s look as being ” half-assed”. She say’s that Senketsu is “ugly”, Satsuki on the other hand defends Senketsu as a sign of “human ingenuity”. She states that Senketsu is design to maximize its power without over taking the host.

Kill 21.2

Ryuko seems to be completely taken over by Junketsu’s power, and she quickly begins to dominate Satsuki. The Four Devas intervene almost managing to rip Junketsu off. However, Nui arrives to save her and tells the others that Junketsu is sewed onto Ryuko. Mako “leaps into action”, as the COVER’s are release to overtake mankind. Ragyo begins the “Genesis of the cocoon planet”, the original life fiber begins to travel to “where it all began”.

Kill 21.4

 

Ryuko continues to dominate Satsuki and the four Devas, and she manages to rip Senketsu. Mako arrives and gives her usually long winded speeches, Nui decides to kill her. Senketsu saves her and in the process takes some of her blood. Satsuki now naked engages in battle with Nui, where she suspects that Nui doesn’t trust the control they have over Ryuko.

She states that Nui reluctance to give Ryuko the other half of the scissor shows that she is “still a touch anxious”. Three of the Four Devas arrive to battle Nui as Satsuki turn her attention to Ryuko. Nui orders Ryuko to kill Mako and Senketsu, Mako’s family interferes. As she aims to kill them Satsuki arrives and cut a wound in Ryuko. She orders Mako and Senketsu to enter, forcing Ryuko to release Junketsu.

Kill 21.7

While within Ryuko we get a strange encounter between Mako, Senketsu and Ryuko. She slices through Senketsu, who in turn gushes blood. Nui assumes that their attempt to change her mind fail, but when her back is turned Ryuko throws her Scissor through it. Enraged she rips of Junketsu, preparing to die while she does it.

Kill 21.8

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Opinion:

This episode feature a lot of action and it’s more than worth the wait. The unpredictability of this episode was the most enjoyable. I couldn’t tell which way the tide would turn, and whether Satsuki stood a chance.

I was impressed with Satsuki’s abilities as a fighter. I’m hoping that Nui actually dies, she just annoying but I doubt it. I wonder if Junketsu is destroyed or would pieces of it survive being reused for Satsuki.

Kill 21.9

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mako added her usual humor and disruption to this episode, I was surprised by the fact that she appeared in the episode as much as she was. She was very effective in this episode, although I’m disappointed that she didn’t fight with Senketsu though I’m not surprise she didn’t.

Kill La Kill – Episode 12

Spit Your Sadness Away

iss

It was pretty obvious at the end of the last episode that Ryuko was going to lose her mind, but I didn’t predict any thing like this. Ryuko begins to attack Nui, who proceeds to tell her how she killed her father. I personally thought this was the best part of the episode. I assumed that Ryuko’s father (Isshin) was just a weak old man that got slaughtered without much resistance.

iss2

We learn that Isshin created the “Rending Scissors”, and he’s had some fighting ability. I was thoroughly impressed by Isshin fighting ability, even though it wasn’t enough.  Isshin attempts to use the rending scissors against Nui, but he only manages to slashed her left eye. Nui unsurprisingly get pissed after losing her eye, and brutally stabs Isshin to death.

yyy

Ryuko’s blood begins to boil, resulting in Senketsu transforming into a grotesque form. Tsumugu tries to distract Nui to aid Aikuro as he try’s to use the “adhesive bullet” on Ryuko. Satsuki decides to step in and activates her Kamui. Ryuko and Satsuki engage in a brief but impressive battle. Mako makes her usual appearance at inappropriate moment’s. She literally slaps some sense into Ryuko, saving her life (even Satsuki acknowledges this).

Grotesque Senketsu

After Ryuko recovers from battle, Satsuki reveals that “she was the one who ordered Nui to steal the sword scissors from Isshin”. She thanks Ryuko for helping her gain greater insight into Goku Uniforms, due to Ryuko’s battles with the Elite Four. She has determine to take control over the BIG three schools to the west.

qazwsxedcI like how the world of Kill La Kill has been expanded, with the introduction of the western schools. I wonder if the also have Goku uniforms, or considering the fact that Nui didn’t need one maybe the won’t either? Regardless, I’m excited about the possibilities. Are you?
