More Netflix anime binge watching brought me to Kill la Kill. I have no idea why it is named that after watching the whole darn series. I honestly thought this was going to be a pretty lame series. I am not sure how I made it that deep into the series without giving up on it because it was pretty bad.
It is about a 17 year old girl on a quest to find her dad’s killer that leads her Honnouji Academy and conflict with the president of the student council. Sounds lame right? Well actually, it was until episode 17, but actually now that I think about it episode 4 was the hook. I laughed my ass off on that one. I definitely have to watch that one again. The comedy relief in Mako Mankanshoku and her family was probably my favorite part of the series. The silliness and insanity probably was its saving grace as I was not a fan of Ryuko or Satsuki the two main characters.
I didn’t see much of a need for the revealing odd costumes/living clothing during the fighting transformations. It seemed like a fighting anime with a crappy storyline with a little too much fan service. Then bottom drops out on episode 17 and the story flips you for a doozy. All of a sudden the story goes scifi and I really found myself enjoying the plot twist. It changed my mind about the whole series. So if you like fighting anime with a little bit of skin and whole lot of silliness, Kill la Kill is not a bad way to kill time…
Rating 7/10 pretty good, go watch it!
