Oh please not again this "Mako will die" frenzy! :irked:


Anyway, now that I think about it,
SPOILER: Show
with Senktsu destroyed, does that mean that she'll be back to her uniform and jacket attire from the first episode? I hope so, I always preferred that style for her, especially the jacket which was very cool!

And it all fits into Satsuki's master plan, too. Blood purge? Asking to be seen. :stir:

What the hell? This is too crazy a theory, I think the original sin stuff was more of a metaphor rather than a literal thing.

You missed the biggest homage of all though: REVOCS, a sinister multinational god-building think tank answerable to apparently no one, is actually a mere front for COVERS...an even more sinister multinational god-building think tank answerable to apparently no one.

Finally got around to ep13 and wow, this was great. KLK's first cour definitely mostly felt like Inferno Cop or PSG in that you could throw it on in the background and kind of pay attention and enjoy it, it was a good cartoon and worth watching but pretty insubstantial, looped back around on itself pretty deliberately: one can tell the first cour was scripted on the idea "so there's this hardass delinquent girl and this hardass fascionista girl and they want to fuck fight, time for shenanigans". And "shenanigans" is mostly how it turned out, you don't get the kind of tight, deliberate character-based plotting one saw in say Gurren Lagann. It's not as if it's bad thing, plenty of stuff was accomplished and the world well and truly built, the Big Four are all a bit bland except Gamagoori but who cares, they're the miniboss squad. Jesus did not weep over the lack of depth of Thymilph the Furious. Indeed that's the point, miniboss characters are appendages of the boss not persons in their own right and this goes double for KLK where the boss is the center of an authoritarian cult of personality which encourages dehumanization of those who participate in it. They're fun to look at and entertaining to various degrees. And they have shenanigans. Job well done, Trigger.

ep13 was just good TV though. Senketsu's relationship with Ryuuko is taken from the stuff of comedy that it was in the first cour into the realm of the angsty and then the tragic without missing a beat. More to the point without feeling terribly maudlin. Imaishi has a remarkable ability to remain detached from material that could easily be really really sappy. This episode has probably more empty space in it than every other episode until this point combined - Ryuuko can sit depressively in bed and do nothing like a champ - but it never drags. Shit's moving behind the scenes. If this sounds familiar it's probably because Eva pulls the same trick, creating tension and unease by allowing its protagonist to increasingly retreat from the world and stagnate while the world continues apace, getting more and more lethal and psychologically vicious behind his back. Of course one can't imagine Ryuuko remaining zonked out for the next eleven episodes, but one is good enough, really. She'll be back: one only wonders if Senketsu's inevitable resurgent form will be more revealing or less.

Absolutely love the Aikurou=Adam Ragyou=Eve theory though I think it must be at least slightly off the mark. Aikurou surely couldn't have created Junketsu, he's no kind of super-scientist. But I don't think that the original sin thing is just metaphor either: nudity and sexuality have been so strongly linked to power in this series. Gamagoori flogs himself with his dickwhips to let his uniform turn him into a literal phallus, for god's sake. To activate a kamui means to bring yourself closer to nakedness; to use its power means to accept that near-nakedness without shame. NYUUDISTO BEECHI suggest that nakedness IS power, straight up. At some point it should probably have to be explained why this is so, what's so good about being naked? The Eden narrative provides a useful explanation for this: nudity is the ideal, created state and clothing a rejection of it that paradoxically produces the sin and shame it is claimed to prevent. The idea is the same as spiral power kind of: power manifests as this kind of raw, generative animal vitality best expressed by nudity or, failing that, teenage girls in frilly talking sling bikinis.
Nothing is so valuable that it need not be started afresh, nothing is so rich that it need not be enriched constantly.

Not only that but they are both wordplays for Reebok and Converse which goes hand in hand with the theme about fashion and Cover is Revocs spoken backwards and is what it says, a cover organization for the dirty deeds of Revocs.

Another thing I think people missed is that Satsuki might be in cahoots with sensei. In the last episode we see the teacher with his phone and the data vanish. Seconds later Satsuki appears to rescue Ryuuko and cover her with a blanket.

Az, don't forget, sensei worked with Isshin and is well informed about the Kamui.


Also I'm fully expecting a giant turning humans into life fiber instrumentality project coming at us.

@ Fireball : I noticed about the COVERS being REVOCS backward(minus the "S"), but I didn't noticed the wordplays for Reebok and Converse.

About the Life Fibers, I expect since the opening in the first episode with the image you posted as well as the name that they are made from human souls and/or flesh.

Loved the episode, the different setting and different schools were quite refreshing, the Honnouji landscape was getting old already.

I freakin' loved this episode, everything about it :

- the change of setting and discovering new academies, I thought that it was just Honnouji, but the whole country is fucking insane!(OSAKA FTW!) Hell Honnouji looks saner than the others academies!

- the complete surrealism and WTF of the academy fights, the Elite Four chewing the scenery more than ever(the scene with Inumuta and Nonon was hysterical!)

- Mako being Mako.

- Aikuro getting his FABULOUSness up to eleven, now with his FABULOUSmobile!

- Ryuuko's new style, with badass biker glasses and badass Senkentsu scarf going with it(and looks like she took a liking for the bared-midriff look! :lol: ), and the return of the guitar-scissor blade case! Her jacket from episode 1 isn't back though, that's the only thing I regret.

The best is how this episode subverts my expectations : I was thinking we would start an arc where Ryuuko takes back Senkentsu's pieces city by city, with a confrontation against each of the Elite Four before a final showdown against Satsuki with a restored Senkentsu... HELL NO, all the pieces back in one episode, confrontation against Satsuki for the last piece next episode! :headbang:
So according to Newtype, next episode will be the "big climax of the story", Satsuki vs Ryuuko, second round? :drool:
Nui said that she and Ragyo wanted to see Junkentsu going "all out", if part of the Rebuild staff is gonna work on the second half, now that's the best moment for it!

Well, that went a lot quicker than I expected. But what the hell will they do after next ep? Maybe that's when things get elevated and the battle shifts to a new arena?

Since it's coming up in the US, this reminds me of the final line of the I Have a Dream speech: "Free at last! Free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"

Again realized how much I like the casting of Nobuyuki Hiyama as Sanegayama, as he voiced Ikkaku Madarame in Bleach and both characters are very similar.
