Kill 24.15

Opinion:

The Finally of Kill La Kill was bitter sweet. I thoroughly enjoy both this episode and the series. I liked the balance of character participation in the episode, even though Ryuko finally takes over.  Ryuko basically going “Super Saiyan” was cool, but I found the name “Senketsu Fashion Week” to be a little silly.

I was disappointed that there wasn’t more in depth fighting against Ragyo at the end. I wished there was more team work between Ryuko and Satsuki, but was satisfied that Ryuko finally acknowledge that Satsuki is her sister. Absolute Domination was anything but Absolute or Dominating, but it probably was impossible to be too powerful.

Gamagoori clearly is in love with Mako, and I’m surprise that he had a more dynamic part in this episode compared to the other Devas. The largest aspect of this episode was the death of Senketsu, which I didn’t expect. Even though he wasn’t needed any longer, I though Senketsu would have survived. Overall, I really liked this series, the same elements unsurprisingly appeared in this series also appeared in Gurren Lagann. However, I still think Gurren Lagann was better but not by much, though the animation of both series was spectacular.

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.

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.

Episode 04 – Dawn of a Miserable Morning

122

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.

Highlights:

  • Mommy with Machine gun
  • Maiko “Attempt at suicicde”
  • Maki’s usual humor
