KILL LA KILL #4-2 MOMENTS

The counterattack begins. I’d say this part is way better than 90% of action movies I’ve ever seen. It also reminded me of Panty & Stocking’s last episode.

Kill18

This moment. THIS F*CKING MOMENT. I died several times. The music… the animation… I just can’t…

Kill19

They somewhat safely landed in school, and Senketsu is delivered, but here we go again with a fatal panty shot…

Kill20

…Which caused the death (?) of our last hero. R.I.P. (?) Guts, we’ll never forget you.

Kill21

…But here’s the plot twist! Maiko wasn’t their ally to begin with. She was just aiming for Senketsu she succesfully stole, attempting to rise against Satsuki’s dictatorship!

Kill22

…And having not shame at all, she could wear Senketsu without any problem. That explanation cracked me up.

Kill23

…But Senketsu still refuses her blood, and so she’s unable to do anything. Ryuuko’s face means “you’re f*cked”.

Kill24

Though Senketsu returns to Ryuuko, Maiko’s last trap was already set! The school was a fake one, and so Mako and Ryuuko slide back to the beginning of the track. What are they going to do now?

Kill25

…Of course, riding to school via highspeed ropeway, powered by Senketsu’s power. F*ck yeah physics!

Kill262

Though Maiko safely got the f*ck away, she’s found out by Gamagoori, who expells her from the academy. Gj Maiko, you’ll be remembered.

Kill26

…And just when Ryuuko and Mako are about to being called by the professor, the cabin arrives at full speed towards the school, breaking through Ryuuko’s classroom…

Kill27

…And they safely arrive just in time…

Kill28

…to say “present” to the teacher’s call. (SO BADASS!!)

Kill29

This episode was awesome. See you next post/episode!

Kill la Kill – Episode 4 – Part 1/2

BACK.
ON.
TRACK!!
This episode was awesome. It got back to its demential atmosphere, without erasing completely the epicness.
That’s exactly what I wanted from Kill la Kill: Randomness, action and entertainment.
I just want to say right now that Kill la Kill is the best anime of 2013, but I don’t know how it will go on, So, for now I’d say it’s only a good nominee for this award.
Watching episode 4 was, once again, like watching Panty&Stocking, or Dead Leaves.
I mean, damn. Same gags, same atmosphere and overall similar art.
If anyone, like me, wants to see randomness instead of a solid plot in an anime like this one, than you’ll love this episode.
It’s as if the third episode was something completely detached from the series.
Anyway, let’s check this part 1 best moments from episode 4!

KILL LA KILL #4-1 MOMENTS

Apparently something big is going to happen. We can understand it by Mako’s rush, which allows her create copies of her.

Kill01

Ryuuko can’t even wear Senketsu, today, because of the laundry done by Mako’s mom. Senketsu being slapped is worth the entire episode.

Kill02

According to Senketsu, no one except for Ryuuko can hear it. In other words, to everyone else, Senketsu is nothing more than a simple uniform. That’s probably why we didn’t get to hear the Junketsu talk, in episode 3 (?)

Kill03

Senketsu hitting the climax is one of the best thing of this episode. Even better than Senketsu being slapped.

Kill04

So, Mako tells Ryuuko that they’re about to face the “no-late day”, a day in which every no-star student must overcome several traps set by Honnouji Accademy’s members in order to reach the school. Everyone who fails to reach the school within 8:30, is expelled. Obviously, no one wants to be expelled.

Kill05

Gamagoori faces off Mako, who is defending Ryuuko for wearing a pajamas while attempting to entering school. “Everyone wears one as they wake up!”
Well, can’t complain it. Probably I’m going to university in pajamas next week.

Kill06

A panoramic of some death traps set by Honnouji Academy… What the hell are those luna-parks rotating tea cups for?

Kill07

A girl with an injured arm asks Ryuuko and Mato for help. Looks like they found a new ally!

Kill08

Meanwhile, Mako’s dad, brother and her dog Guts are attempting to reach Ryuuko by car to deliver her Senketsu she requested. Unfortunately, distracted by her butt, they end up crashing their car.

Kill09

Mako’s dad leaves the task to his son, who takes the bike in order to reach Ryuuko. Those two gags are repeated more than one time, and cracked me up every single time.

Kill10

Gags over gags while we see Ryuuko and the others proceed.

Kill11

Here we go again, Ryuuko’s panties kills (?) Mako’s brother.

Kill12

Another touching (?) death (?) scene ;_;

Kill13

The fate of the Senketsu’s delivery is now on the shoulder of our last hero, Guts.

Kill14

The trio manage to steal a van, having the girl with the glasses (Maiko) drive it. License? Who cares?

Kill15

Too bad they’re seen by a spy from Honnouji Academy, and thus…

Kill16

…World War Three started. (?)

Kill17

See you tomorrow for next half!

Yamazaki’s Slap Competition

Translator’s Notes

Here we are again, with a short clip from the times when Yamazaki looked like a child, Matsumoto had hair and Heipo was (arguably) brave.
Once again, sorry for the quality: Every other old Gaki no Tsukai clips are all like this one, so I can’t do anything about it!
Our Yamazaki challenges three brave slap-fighters: Shimoda Kageki, with his marvelous screams, the brave Heipo, back then when he wasn’t a total p*ssy, and lastly Tsuttsun, the one who defeated him.
An intense fight, full of suspense and thrills.
I’m sorry if the clip is too short, but I don’t have much time for subbing longer clips, though I’m already working on some other clips while I can… I promise more (and longer) stuff is coming out (not too much) soon, so stay tuned and don’t miss the next upload!!

Kill la Kill – Episode 3 – Part 2/2

And here comes part 2 of the third episode of Kill la Kill, full of action, fighting sequences, tits, epic animations, tits, tits and pointless fanservice.
Overall good, as I said in the previous post, but kinda disappointing in some parts.
I hope it will get back on its track by the next episode.
But let’s not waste any time on pointless talk, let’s just enjoy the best moments from this second half.

kill la kill #3-2 moments

As the battle is about to begin, Senketsu warns Ryuuko that Satsuki is more powerful than her. In fact, Ryuuko is loosing lots of blood, and is in trouble. Also, apparently Satsuki can shoot lasers (?)

Kill13

Satsuki is not even moving her feet, and yet, she’s winning. Just look at her royal badassery.

Kill14

Ryuuko is launched inside the school building. She’s about to faint. Ass shots everywhere.

Kill15

To avoid to have Ryuuko fainting, Senketsu deactivates, leaving Ryuuko powerless, face on the ground.

Kill16

That scene. Ryuuko is about to face her defeat.

Kill17

Satsuki tells her that there’s no point to be ashamed of what they’re wearing, because that’s the Kamui’s true nature. Also, pointless ridiculously large tits shot.

Kill18

Here comes Mako, saving the day! (?) She basically tells Ryuuko not to give a f*ck about her being ashamed, because she’s not in a position to being it to begin with.

Kill19

Just before Satsuki is about to slice Mako in half, Ryuuko stops her. She now understood everything. The fact she understood everything because of Mako’s stupid talking, was rather nonsensical and lame. Oh well.

Kill22

Ryuuko gains Senketsu’s full power. No need to be ashamed of anything! Just kick some ass!

Kill23

Ryuuko attacks! Fanservice is not missing, though.

Kill24

Spinspinspinspinspin~ Ryuuko is unstoppable, but Satsuki is not so weak to be defeated by her.

Kill25

…In fact, Satsuki is able to dodge Ryuuko’s ultimate attack. She seems quite pleased by the fight overall, but in the end…

Kill26

…No one won. Satsuki retreats, they’re both exhausted.
…BUT! The next scene will be something epic, because…

Kill27

Satsuki tells Ryuuko that if she’ll fight her again only after Ryuuko defeated every other club under her command…

Kill32

…In other word, we’ll get to see Ryuuko against several villains, and lastly agains the final boss Satsuki! JUST LIKE I WANTED!! TYPICAL SHONEN GRADUATED BOSS-FIGHT RULES!!

Kill33

Probably I didn’t enjoy this episode as the other two, but that final scene was satisfying. I have my hope raised again for it!

Kill34

See you next week!

Kill la Kill – Episode 3 – Part 1/2

Episode 3: WAT.
I mean, I liked it, but it’s starting to look a lot more like a “serious” anime, and I didn’t actually enjoyed all the fanservice in this episode. It’s way too much.
It was epic anyway, though.
The animations were absolutely gorgeous, and the fighting scenes are getting better and better as it continues.
I also liked how the “boss fight” is so early in the plot, but it ends halfway. I’ll talk about this in part 2, coming tomorrow.
So, in few words, this episodes’ pros and cons.
Pros:
– Epic animation/battles.
– Plot seems to get clearer.
– It settles the right ground for the next episodes.
Cons:
– Different from the previous episodes, it’s not so random as them.
– Too much fanservice.
– The gags were kinda forced and lame.

(PS: I wrote Mato instead of Mako in the previous post!)

KILL LA KILL #3-1 MOMENTS

We start with a flashback of Satsuki where she’ seen talking t- OMFG THAT’S ADORABLE.

Kill01

The teacher is going to talk to Ryuuko. Meanwhile, enjoy some free Mako spinning.

Kill02

I liked this part: Ryuuko seeking for answers, the teacher trying to avoid answering. Guess a blade in-da-face will do the job.

Kill03

It looks like the teacher is a friend of Ryuuko’s father, and they were in a group against Satsuki’s family’s dictatorship. He was instructed to give Ryuuko her senketsu after his death. Apparently, kamuis are made 100% of life threads, a powerful material, the same used for Goku’s uniforms, though they only use less than 30% of it. Way too much plot for my tastes-

Kill04

Meanwhile, in school the “bad guys” are trying to create a 50% life thread Goku’s uniform, which results in creating an uncontrollable beast, later blocked by the guy with glasses and blue hair. I kinda like him.

Kill05

Satsuki is back home, intended to take back her “wedding dress” her father promised her when she was a child. Obviously it’s a kamui, and she offers her blood to it, even though her servants are trying to stop her from doing so.

Kill06

Despite the pain, she’s able to wear it. I liked this blood stain detail.

Kill07

And we’re back in Mako’s place, where her father and brother (and dog) continue to harass Ryuuko. Yay!

Kill08

Just before going to bed, Mako notices that Senketsu is strange, as if it has goosebumps. Some sh*t is going to happen.

Kill09

Epicness. Satsuki awaits Ryuuko in the next morning: sh*t happened.

Kill10

The two are ready to fight each other, but not before Satsuki shows her ultimate gear: the Senketsu.

Kill11

After a Sailor-Moon-Styled transformation sequence (in which fanservice hits its peaks), Kamui Junketsu is finally showed: The battle is about to begin.

Kill12

Part 2 coming out tomorrow

Cocorico Tanaka’s Shichi-Henge

Translator’s Notes

Here we are again, with another old great Gaki no Tsukai clip! As many of you may already know, the “schichi-henge” serie (literally: “Seven Transformations”) consists by performing seven characters, attempting to make everyone laugh. More people laugh, more money the person in charge will earn. Apparently, the money were donated to some kind of charity association, I’m pretty sure is named Kobato (小鳩) or something, but since I wasn’t sure how to translate the full name (and if it even actually exists), I prefered to leave it unnamed. I think it was the best choice-
I seriously didn’t expect Tanaka to reach the top. I always saw Tanaka as the serious-type, but it seems that when it comes to act like a comedian he can do his job greatly.
There are some parts in the video were everyone is muttering constantly, and I really can’t understand due the low audio quality. However, most of them are things like “Sou desu ka?” or “Sou desu yo ne…” …In english, they’re nothing but backchannels, meaning sentence said for expressing approval / interest in the conversation.
Also, some sentences were arranged a little bit, but their meaning was not modified that much. I’m sorry, but sometimes the audio is so bad not all the words can be understood!
I’m also sorry for (possible) mistakes/mispells, if there are any.
I hope you enjoyed this clip, and stay tuned: New Gaki no Tsukai clips are coming soon, as well as some other subbed clips from Japan that you might-or-might-not enjoy :’D

Kill la Kill – Episode 2 – Part 2/2

I think one of the most enjoyable element in an anime is the mixture. With it, I mean that an anime is really enjoyable when inside it has some serious plot/story/moments but overall a funny/crazy/random atmosphere. There are several animes which try to do this, but it’s not something so simple that everyone can do it nicely.
Kill la Kill is surely one of those animes.
When it comes to badass moments, it has badass moments, same thing for its epicness, fight scenes, serious moments… everything steadily decorated by its random and hilarious style. I’d say this will be part of my top 5 best animes if it keeps its way.
Anyway, here’s part two of Kill La Kill episode 2 recap/Best moments!

Kill La Kill #2-2 Moments

Ryuuko is rescued by the teacher, she’s (obviously) naked and he’s going to explain her a little something about her Senketsu. Gotta love her :I face.

Kill13

How to awake Senketsu? Just spill some of your blood on it. Remember episode 1? Ryuuko was injured when she wore it.

Kill14

The teacher’s explaination continues, as he performs some random manservice poses. I can’t help but seeing Panty & Stocking everywhere, I’m sorry if I quote it everytime.

Kill15

He suddenly returns geeky. Anyway, he gives Ryuuko that glove, which can help her to feed Senketsu easily.

Kill16

Ryuuko is ready to face her opponent, the tennis club Leader. Epic frame.

Kill17

Senketsu’s activation was weird, sudden and somewhat epic.

Kill18

Because they’re on a tennis field, Ryuuko must face her opponent in a tennis match. She then accepts those conditions, persuaded by Mato.

Kill19

Though her Senketsu is working fine, her racket is too weak compared to her opponent’s. She’s almost losing the match.

Kill20

Using her half-scissor-blade as a racket. Pure genious. Now, sh*t got serious.

Kill21

FINISH HER! KILLING SHOT!

Kill22

…I’m not even sure that’s tennis anymore.

Kill23

Tennis-chick’s Goku’s Uniform: destroyed. I think we’ll seen frames like that in every episode. Fine to me-

Kill24

Ryuuko won and everything (LOL @the audience), but…

Kill25

Surprising, Lady Satsuki makes her move against Ryuuko, claiming that her sword could destroy even her Senketsu. Ryuuko is almost at her limit, so winning for now it’s impossible. Having almost 50 seconds to win against her opponent…

Kill26

…She decided to flee the battle. Satsuki allowed her to do so, once more.

Kill27

And with this frame, the second episode ends. I surely didn’t expect Satsuki to enter the battle right now, though. Looks like Satsuki and Ryuuko are going to have a good time with weapons in the future. For now, I’d say that it’s not time yet, considering the other guys Ryuuko has to beat. Yeah, kinda like a videogame, you can’t simply face off the final boss in the first chapters, you can just take a glance of it, or have a simple taste of its power.

Kill28

See you next week!
