Kill la Kill ep 8 impressions

Who knew that the giant musclebound gamagoori was a masochistic 20 year old still attending school? I sure didn’t, but it made me laugh a storm. 🙂

So Satsuki decided to amplify the chaos by leaving 5 spots in the student council for whoever beats the others in a week. While the lower students are tearing eachother apart in this king-of-the-hill battle, the 4 devas and Ryuuko treat it as a 7 day break due to their power levels, and Mako doesn’t care about power after ep 7. Ryuuko decides to show Mako her old home, and Gamagoori gives them a ride back once their “stolen” scooter breaks down. During this time, we learn more about these 3 outside of their school personas.

For the past few eps, Satsuki and the 4 devas have become quite likeable. Despite their habit of making hills of corpses, they’re still responsible for maintaining order and helping out students when outside of school. Gamagoori gets the spotlight this time for flashbacks, and this time it justifies Satsuki’s actions rather than just bring awe. The world around them is arguably more corrupt than they are, and they need to display their power if order is to be maintained. Couple this with the fact the 4 devas really feel like old friends, and you have a cast of minions that are just as interesting as their master.

Ryuuko and Mako get some minor roles here compared to Gamagoori, but it’s certainly not wasted. Ryuuko’s quest for revenge seems more credible once we see her isolation from her parents and life as a delinquent, before all of it is set to flames. And there’s something both random and poetic of how Mako acts in Gamagoori’s car, describing her life as a yellow light(cautious and nonreactive) while cheerfully singing about car pile-ups and the road to hell.

When we really think back, Honnouji’s dictatorship has been portrayed more as a strict regime than a murderous meatgrinder. The 7 days of anarchy are welcomed by every student if it means getting a chance to power. It’s all taken in such an over-the-top style that the abundant deaths serve more as dark humor than shock value. And if that means I can laugh at a pile of bodies standing at the school gates, i’m perfectly fine with that.

  1. I’m not that much of a online reader to be honest but
    your sites really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your
    site to come back down the road. Cheers

  2. Hi! I must say, I’m amazed with your website. I had
    little difficulty navigating through all the information. I discovered what I wanted in no time at all.

    Pretty awesome. Would appreciate it in case you add forums or something,
    it would be a great means for your clients as well as some other visitors
    to have interaction. Good job.

      Tahnks for the compliment. I’ve been thinking of integrating a forum for some time, but I don’t know how to integrate it through wordpress and if we have enough of an audience to maintain one. Still, it’s definitely a possibility.

  3. In most cases, you are farming for cloth, coin drops, vendor trash, and the occasional
    greens and blues. The homeowner, along with a neighbor called Crazy Dave, must defend the homeowner’s house during day or night,
    in the front yard and the backyard (including the swimming pool), and even on the roof.
    Instructing the team to play in a particular style can also
    please the fans.

  6. I tend not to create a comment, however after looking at a few of the comments here Kill la Kill ep 8 impressions | Brave New
    Moe. I actually do have a few questions for you if it’s allright.

    Is it just me or do a few of these responses come across like they
    are coming from brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are writing
    at additional social sites, I would like to keep up with everything new you have to post.
    Could you list of all of your social sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or
    linkedin profile?

    I do believe all the concepts you have offered to your post.
    They are very convincing and can definitely work.

    Still, the posts are too brief for novices. May
    just you please extend them a little from next time?
    Thank you for thee post.
