    I normally avoid watching anime that hasn't finished airing, but I make a few exceptions for stuff like Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. I wasn't going to watch this until it was done, but a friend of mine bugged me until finally I ended up watching the first episode, and got hooked within the first 3 minutes.

    That's part of what I like about it. There haven't really been too many recent anime I liked as much as this one. The pace is really (extremely) fast and usually I like that. Hopefully it continues to get better. I have little else to look forward too besides the new season of JJBA and the ner Fate/Kalied Liner Prisma Illya (and what I'm really waiting on is the 3rd manga to be adapted.)

    and then it turns out the reason its so fast paced is because its five episodes long.

    Dude, I'd take 2 more episodes of that caliber over 10 more that are pretty tame.

    i managed to catch episode 3 and now i have a few different expectations for Mako, since she's probably the funniest character in show and displays an insane amount of fearlessness (or obliviousness) in the face of serious danger:

    Show Spoiler

    Either:
    1. She somehow gets her own Kamui and helps Ryuko kick ass.
    2. She gets killed off as a signal that the story arc is about to get way too real.
    3. First 1, then 2.

    It's anti-slut shaming, too. They aren't sluts because they wear those clothes, it's their choice!

    SEE! WHY ARE TUMBLRINAS MAD? IT'S EXACTLY WHAT THEY WANT.

    I feel like the big reveal was really ham handed, way too much dialogue. Made it sound preachy and kinda artificial, like "we know you all think this is needlessly sexy so here are our reasons" which is not the right direction.

    Well, this anime feels like a mix of some things that made Heartcatch Precure good, and then put it on crack.

    And Satsuki Kiryuuin is the best! Ahhh, that sexy voice~

    It may have been filler, but it was HILARIOUS filler. Senketsu is the funny character. And Guts had his time to shine.

    It was predictable at first, but the second half through some hilarious twists in there!

    I'm almost sure the bad animation in the 4th episode is a refrence to the infamous 4th episode of Gurren Lagann

    Now keep in mind, if the animation is bad next episode, I'm going to assume the first 3 episodes ate their budget. I just really, really want it to be a reference to that Gurren Lagann episode cause the alternative is...bad.

    So, I've decided to watch this finally and it's definitely worth it.

    Kill la Kill is a throwback to the kick-butt heyday of anime yore, inspired by the bad girls, street punks and no-nonsense awesomeness of classic 80's anime. Though the title is a head-scratcher in English, it's actually quite punny in Japanese --- pronounced "kiru" instead of "kill", it means both "to cut" and "to wear" in the original Japanese, which is the general gist of the show: cutting clothing, or in this case, super-powered school uniforms that allow a despotic student council president (Satsuki Kiryuin) to lead a ruthless organization of clubs and students to rule over Honnouji Academy.

    Whether it's the free-wheeling animation, the frenetic pacing, the atmospheric world-building, or the intense energy that drives this series, everything about Kill la Kill is pushed to the absolute edge (even the fanservice!) But it all boils down to one all-encompassing, all-describing, all-too-appropriate word: fun. This series is a LOT of fun to watch, and by the time you pick your jaw up off the floor, you're smacked in the face again --- one, two, three times! and another wave of awesome, high-octane action knocks you out of the ring. I just can't get enough of it!

    What's old is new again, and the spirit of classics like Project A-ko, Cutie Honey, Sukeban Deka, Otokojuku and other series of the Showa era are brought back to life in a modern work that borrows the best of the old-age sensibilities and cranks them up to eleven with the technical skill and finesse of a new era ready to deliver the goods!

    Kill la Kill comes with my highest recommendation. Go watch it!

    Episode 3 had at least three Gainax references in it. The first is the design on Satsuki's Junketsu. I'm certain it's a throwback to GunBuster.

    1382848_571127226286742_1046127851_n.jpg

    The second is the fight scene. It gives me a Panty & Stocking episode 6 vibe.

    1850578-AP34IOY.gif

    And the last one is the face off between Satsuki and Ryuko. It's another point to Gurren Lagann.

    It might just be that I'm a pretentious douche but I also see quite a bit of intellegent use of fanservice to advance their characterization.

    Episode 5 for 2nd best episode yet? Love this new character, finally getting to see some of the generals at the academy, and a serious scene that doesn't fall apart. The only thing I don't like is the silly Mako speech every episode, it stopped being funny in episode 3.


    How did I miss this...​
