Kill La Kill – Episode 11
I’m Not Your Cute Woman
This episode featured a great air then land battle, but resulted in the introduction of several new characters. It was reveal at the end that Nui Harime was the murderer of Ryuko’s father. Ryuko attempts to use her flight and attack Satsuki directly, but Nonon defends Satsuki. Ryuko destroys her airship with Nonon’s flute shaped missile. Nonon switches to her uniform’s second form, “Da Capo”. It utilizes music to interfere with Ryuko and Senketsu communication.Ryuko counters her sound waves, then reflects them back toward Nonon defeating her.
Tsumugu arrives delivering a special bullet to Aikuro. Before Ryuko and Uzu are about to fight, a perky girl named Nui Harime appears. When assaulted by Uzu she blocks his attack and pulls apart Uzu’s uniform by snapping his Nexus fiber, the Life Fiber that gives it its form. Ryuko asks Nui who she is and she reveals that she killed Ryuko’s father, she even has the other half of the scissor blade to prove it. Ryuko, unsurprisingly flies into a rage. This episode featuring the reveal of who was responsible for Ryuko father’s death, was sooner than expected. I thought they would milk it for a while longer, I’m glad they didn’t.

Kill La Kill – Episode 10
I Want to Know More About You
The episode started of with a flashback of Houka and how he came to meet Satsuki. During the flashback we get a interesting view of Satsuki ideals. She seems to be under the impression that she can “change the world” with Honnouji Academy High School. Houka is hyper analytical and his Goku uniform enhances this ability. His three star uniform , Probe Regalia analyzes Ryuko and her abilities.
Ryuko appears to have figured out rather quickly how to counter Houka, fight erratically. Houka, counters her counter by making himself invisible. Ryuko expands senketsu such that senketsu’s eye stretched the distance of the entire battle field. This prevented Houka from evading senketsu and his ability to gather information on Ryuko. Unable to win and unwilling to lose his data Houka forfeits, he also avoids getting his goku uniform destroyed by Ryuko.
Next is Nonon who like the previous fighters is given a flash back. In her flash back it’s revealed that she meet Satsuki when they were just children. Nonon Three-Star Goku Uniform, Symphony Regalia is aircraft “that attacks her with sound vibrations”. Nonon attempts to win by destroying the battle arena, “knocking” Ryuko out in the process. However, Ryuko transforms into Senketsu Gale, a flying evolution of Senketsu. Aikuro appears to be troubled by the quick evolution of Senketsu, he calls Tsumugu telling him that he should “assume a worst-case scenario”.
