Kill La Kill – Episode 9 – Part 2/2

After the fight against Sanegayama, I understood the fact that Ryuuko can win as well as she can lose. So, I didn’t clearly know how her battle against Gamagoori would end up. Being the protagonist, I was positive about her triumph, but can we really say something like this for sure? I mean, she’s going to fight the elite four one after another, can she really keep up the pace?
Anyway, in the next half we have our lovely flashbacks and battle scenes, as well as some really entertaining battle strategies and some wonderful scenes and frames: I really like this episode.
Let’s not waste further time, the show must go on!
(And the next subbed clip is coming soon… and right after it, another one, shorter but entertaining anyway!)

Kill La Kill #9-2 moments

The battle continues and the Makanshoku family found a spot with a television from where they can finally see the match. Ryuuko is having trouble, anyway.

Kill14

But suddenly flashback! Remember when Gamagoori was helped by Satsuki on the rooftop of his former middle school? Well, it seems he didn’t like the speech of Satsuki about her ruling the entire world. He tries to fight her, but she is far stronger than him.

Kill15

A spinning GTFO knockdown and Satsuki easily defeats the armored Gamagoori, who…

Kill16

…Even all beaten up, still refuses to kneel before her. Satsuki liked this act of bravery, and decided to accept Gamagoori.

Kill17

…And so the two villains joined for- WHAT THE HELL, JUST HOW F*CKING HUGE IS GAMAGOORI? OMFG

Kill18

Back to the present, the battle continues, and while Ryuuko gets naked pleasing the audience and a suddenly lesbian Mako…

Kill19

…She seems to find new ways to avoid getting her butt slapped around by the armored giant. I seriously thought that she was going to win using this technique, but some seconds later…

Kill20

…A third form of Scourge Regalia with new weapons and sh*t. Just how many times can a Goku’s Uniform change its form?

Kill21

Ryuuko is in trouble: she changes back the form of her Senketsu in order to escape a trap set by Gamagoori, and loses her scissor blade. Also, I forgot to mention that Gamagoori’s armor is so thick that she can’t use her final skill to destroy it, because the life fibers are protected by an heavy armor. And yeah, her finishing move kinda hits only the life fibers.

Kill22

Gamagoori attacks. She seems to have some kind of plan. She grabs a huge wire shot by Gamagoori with her and Senketsu’s teeth (Your shirt has no teeth. Just a reminder.)

Kill23

…And as the wire returns from where it has been fired, she is sucked inside Gamagoori’s armor. 10/10 pure genius.

Kill24

Without her scissor blade, she has another plan: first of all, activating Senketsu’s powers…

Kill25

…Aaaand that’s pretty much it. Yup. Spikes!! (because a Kamui can change its form too. I mean, a Goku’s Uniform can and has only 30% life fibers, a 100% life fibers Kamui can do it better! Am I right?)

Kill26

*riiiiip*

Kill27

Having Gamagoori’s life fibers exposed, Ryuuko catches an easy victory by dealing her final blow. You fought well anyway, Gamagoori.

Kill28

Satsuki prevents a crying and ashamed Gamagoori to commit suicide in front of anyone. “Just wipe your tears by yourself”.

Kill29

I felt so sorry for him ;_; he failed to protect the one he swore to protect… But I hope he’ll eventually come back in the future, I really liked him thanks to this episode.

Kill30

Lastly, the episode ends with the fierce look of the next fighter, as he gets on the stage.
Yes, him: The blue-haired four-eyes.

Kill31

See you next week!

Kill La Kill – Episode 9 – Part 1/2

Damn, It doesn’t matter how many times I’m going to write this, I’m always going to remind every reader of every post the same thing: Just watch Kill la Kill, it gets better and better as each episode is released. Though this episode’s overall storyline was kinda obvious and expected, I liked it a lot. We get to see lots of amazing battle scenes, as well as some more flashbacks about the main characters and, obviously, some comedy moments (which is the thing that makes the anime greater than others that seems to be like it).
This episode also raised my love for Gamagoori. I mean, he’s a total badass and I liked his thoughts and actions a lot. Even in the final scene, I loved his reaction. I hope we’ll get to see more of him, even th
On a side note, I’m sorry for everyone waiting for it, the new Gaki no Tsukai clip is currently being translated, but I’m working very slowly… You know, study, university, human relationships… some duties and burdens that I need to get over with. It will be subbed eventually, so fear not! Just keep waiting a little more… Forgive me!
And now, kill la kill #9 (part 1) moments!

KILL LA KILL #9-1 MOMENTS

The episode begins as the previous one ended: Gamagoori and Ryuuko on the stage. We also get to know that Ryuuko is going to fight one after another, and that the order is decided by the number of students that they have defeated during the last few days. Gamagoori is the first, having defeated the fewest number (because he only attacked for self-defense). Next are: Glasses guy, Pink chick and finally our blind Sanegayama.

Kill01

…But the fight against Gamagoori is not going to start until it will be 13:00, the time set for the match. How could she accept this decision? That’s only 8 A.M.!

Kill02

…Neverming, f*ck it. Looks like Ryuuko has some free time to spend. (can’t argue against prefect Gamagoori when it comes to rules)

Kill03

The battle of Ryuuko against the elite four (lol, kinda reminds me of pokémon-) is going to be broadcasted to everyone in the city. That’s why, meanwhile, in Makanshoku’s house begins the journey to find a working television.

Kill04

While Ryuuko is having lunch with her friend Mako, she’s interrupted by her teacher, who immobilizes Mako and forces Ryuuko to retreat, by telling her that fighting against the elite four one after another is the worst decision she could possibly make.

Kill05

“GTFO I’m having lunch with my best friend. Let her go and get the f*ck away” – Gently replied Ryuuko. She’s a hothead, isn’t she? That’s what I like about her.

Kill06

13 o’clock. Time to start the battle between Ryuuko and Honnouji’s Academy’s Unbreakable Shield: Gamagoori Ira.

Kill07

Welp, that’s it. I’m out of this review.
…Okay, leaving the jokes aside, what the hell is this armor? It surely was something.
Yup, something.
Something regrettable.

Kill08

[Intense Stare]

Kill09

[Most badass stare ever]
…In other words, no one is doing anything. That’s because Gamagoori’s armor is released once he gets hit by someone, and Ryuuko, knowing this, is not going to hit him.

Kill10

Ok, that was clever of you, Mr. Masochist Gamagoori.

Kill11

By doing so, Gamagoori gains enough fire power to store energy…

Kill12

…And release the true form of his Goku’s Uniform: Scourge Regalia.
Is Ryuuko going to be in deep sh*t?

Kill13

Part 2 coming out tomorrow!
