Kill La Kill – Episode 5 – Part 2/2

We left when the battle between Ryuuko and the cool-punk-guy-shooting-needles-whose-name-i-can’t-remember-at-all began.
I forgot to write an important thing about the first half, or probably I didn’t talk about that so much.
Mako’s family often watches Ryuuko talking to Senketsu, but due the fact only Ryuuko can hear Senketsu’s voice, they all think her uniform is just an imaginary friend of her.
I was somewhat also moved when Mako said that there was no problem with that, because before she met Ryuuko the only friends she had were all imaginary friends.
Mako was somewhat pitiful and adorable, so this line really got me, dunno why.
Anyway, keep this on mind, because it will be important for what is going to happen next.
So, we can summarize the second half of episode 5 with a few keywords: battles, explosions, explosions, fighting scenes, epicness, explosions, Sengoku Basara, esplosions, explosions, needlestorms, Yakumo Yukari.
Well, I’ve said enough: let’s see the best moments from Kill la Kill Episode 5 (part 2)!

KILL LA KILL #5-2 MOMENTS

Just when the battle gets started, some new enemies appear on the stage, tossing their weapons towards Ryuuko and the other guy. They are…

Kill14bis

…I actually don’t know? The old-farts club? Or probably the “Toss everything you got in da face” club. Don’t know and can’t remember. Anyway, they throw stuff. Pointy stuff. Next there’s…

Kill12

…The poetry club, which throws shurikens poems, which pierce every-f*cking-thing. Just in case you think you’ve seen anything by watching Chihayafuru…
And finally…

Kill13

…The garden club, with its handsome (?) leader which I don’t actually know if he’s the same as before or a clone or his brother or what. Whatever. Long story short, a battle between 2 becomes a battle royale in less than a minute. Nice.

Kill14

…Oh yeah, I almost forgot. The pink-haired chick joins the battle too, leading her army of musicians. sh*t got serious.

Kill15

However, no club can do sh*t against our punk, which is destroying the school a little bit too much.

Kill16

…Aaaand yup, the needles’ effect took its time, but it finally strikes Ryuuko which is now unable to move. Guess Ryuuko lost, this time.

Kill17

Meanwhile, our punk tells us a story of a woman which was consumed by an uniform, and tells us that a bond between a human and an uniform is impossible. I don’t know if the girl in his flashback was Satsuki or someone else, I think we’ll find it out as the story goes on.

Kill18

MOTIVATIONAL MAKO STRIKES AGAIN! Yup, she tells the punk that Senketsu is Ryuuko’s friend, and they both trust each other. It doesn’t matter if Ryuuko is crazy and talks to her uniform, friendship can overcome a simple matter as the relationship between animated and non-animated stuff! (…I guess.)

Kill19

Then, Mako took Senketsu, hands it to Ryuuko and gets the f*ck out. Thank you again, Mako!

Kill20

Just when the punk is about to strip Ryuuko once again, he’s stopped by…

Kill21

…Senketsu’s voice. He can feel the bond of trust between Ryuuko and her Kamui, both calling each other out. He’s astonished. Can’t blame him.

Kill22

The Orchestra-whatever club joins the toilet. I seriously don’t know anymore who’s allied with who.

Kill23

One last smoke grenade and the punk gtfos with Ryuuko from the window, leaving the pink haired chick and her sex slaves fellows alone in the school building.

Kill24

Summary of this scene:
Senketsu: “we’re safe, he brought us there and I’m just a shirt to you.”
Ryuuko: “Nope, you’re my friend.”
Senketsu: “K lol let’s train hard”
Pretty cliché but it’s ok.

Kill25

One last glance to this week’s hero, which now trusts Ryuuko and Senketsu, but is ready anytime to take back his words of trust if Ryuuko will become consumed by her Kamui’s life fiber. Damn, he’s cool.

Kill26

Pretty damn cool episode, see you next week!
Also, as I wrote yesterday, a new short subbed Gaki no Tsukai clip is coming out soon, stay tuned!

Kill la Kill – Episode 5 – Part 1/2

This episode felt different too, but I liked it a lot anyway.
By different I mean it focused more on the plot instead of gags, but it was awesome anyway.
First of all, The guy with the needle-gun was a total badass, and I seriously hope he’ll be back again by the next episodes.
Second, the battles. Oh God, the battles. I’m not lying when I say that the battle scenes in this episode were far greater than the battle scenes in episode 3 against Lady Satsuki.
I personally liked the fight against the guy with needles (And I can’t remember his name at all) more than the fight against Lady Satsuki.
On the other hand, I found somewhat cliché the part in which Ryuuko and Senketsu are talking about the bond between humans and uniforms. I don’t know, it doesn’t seem anything new to me, for some reasons.
Anyway, in this first half (Which I released way too late…) there’s no trace of the battles I’ve talked about. Those are inpart 2 coming out tomorrow!
Let’s see anyway the best moments and what happened in the first twelve minutes of Kill La Kill 5!

KILL LA KILL #5-1 MOMENTS

I like him. He’s badass. Anyway, the episode starts with this guy (can’t remember the name, once again; inb4 2lazy to search for it) breaking throught Honnouji’s Accademy and attempting to snipe Ryuuko, but right before that he’s interrupted…

Kill01

…By the gardening club’s manager, a 2-star uniform student which can grow giant monster plants from the pot on his back. He’s gonna take revenge for what Mr. Sniper did (stepping on the rooftop’s grass). He’s easily beaten, though. Oh well.

Kill02

Meanwhile, Mato and Ryuuko are involved in another mess, involving the zombie club chemistry club. An easy prey, considering the only star on their uniforms. The whole battle lasts only for 20 seconds, so it’s not a big deal.

Kill03

Ability unlocked! Now the scissor blade can easily change its size into a normal pair of scissor size! And Ryuuko is able to do that because… because the… ’cause… How can she do it, again? Whatever, that’s cool!

Kill05bf4

Here comes again the guy from before, shooting needles to Mako, in a comically dramatic sequence. The needles didn’t harm her, she’s just immobilized and she’ll be fine and energized afresh once the effect wore out. Lucky for you, Mako!

Kill04

He’s strong. Ryuuko couldn’t even change to her Kamui form before his eyes. The guy asked Ryuuko to strip off her uniform (which is what he’s aiming for), but he’s later blocked by a member of Satsuki’s party…

Kill06

…Which he meets later on the same day. We get to know that the guy is against Kamuis and Goku’s uniforms, because they slowly consume who’s wearing them, and because one can’t only rely on the power granted by the life fibers.

Kill07

Meanwhile, at Mako’s place, while everyone is enjoying the dinner (this time strangely luxurious), Ryuuko is worried about the guy she meets in the morning. Senketsu knows the guy is after him and not after Ryuuko, so he tells Ryuuko to leave him behind and go to school without wearing him.

Kill08

Being also an enemy of Satsuki’s party, the guy is being analyzed by Satsuki’s headquarters. I love the RPG-styled graphics.

Kill09

And so, the pink-haired-chick is now in charge to prevent the guy and Ryuuko to create a fuss the next day.

Kill10

After talking to Senketsu one more time (while Mako’s family watches her talking by herself ((they can’t hear Senketsu))), Ryuuko decides to wear it anyway, because she needs protection. And so, once she enters the school, the fight begins!

Kill11

Now, let me tell you two useful pieces of informations…
1)Second part is coming out tomorrow.
2)A new short Gaki no Tsukai clip is going to be released soon.
