Spill la Kill?

I'm totally loving this show so far, though I agree anybody not already weened on this stuff will be at a loss, but to hell with pleasing the masses that's what killed video games' and as for moms reaction, to quote Will Smith "parents just don't understand" Lol.

Happy Halloween guys!

I hope the series will expand because I feel it's confined to one setting, the school. This series remind me of High School of the Dead. It makes fun of fan service by going over the top, and it's not for everyone. I'm glad that the panty shots in this show are kept minimal unlike HOTD. I can't stand excessive panty shots. That's just me.

I think when talking about anime to friends, one should have some awarness of the friends knowledge.True this would not be a series you would recomend to some one just looking at the anime.But on the other hand it has less nudity than say The Simpsons.

An the main characters in genral have more cloth on them than say who debuted in 1969.Holloween referance tie in there.

@takashichea: Thats a good comparison.Then again if say Kill la Kill had the art style of Highschool of the Dead then it might be more noticalbe to.Definitly if they did the same camera angles .An i would consider it fan service then to.But its art style just is to cartoony for me to consider it that way .

Mako remind of that girl from Speed Racer with her spotlight scene, rooting Ryuko. Plus, I need to try Panty and Stocking.

@Marshal Victory:

It's like Looney Tunes when they exaggerate the animations and facial expressions. The show stands out with this style. Other shows like Flowers of Evil use Rotoscoping or complete CG to stand out.

I'm confused by the characterization of the dialog between Ryuko and Satsuki in Ep. 3. At no point does Satsuki accuse Ryuko of secretly enjoying the revealing attire. What she says is that she's amazed that Ryuko can wear a kamui but only produce such a small amount. That's what she means by calling Ryuko a "lump of flesh that's stuffed in a kamui." She then tells her that's she's small for being so concerned about the morality of the masses.

On the idea that the skimpier the kamui gets the power is released. That's just not true.

As you can see, the original reveal of Senketsu is smaller when compared to when she finally synchronized with it. If it's only episode 3 and it grows this much. It's likely that by the end it will grow even more. It must be absorbing Life Fibers for a reason.

Yea I think they are going to grow the suit and have it cover more as it goes and I honestly think you are worrying about the fan service to much but I think society which has become to anti-sex does that to much. But on that vain for the name of the segment - church lady kill la kill? Talk la kill nudity? Prudes on kill la kill? Kill la Prude? I don't know if the sexyness is going to make you uncomfortable I say embrace the uncomfortableness. Oh and if any of you can do a church lady impression having the church lady as a guest reviewing the show would be HILARIOUS!

Show definitely rocks and as the sex isn't used overly provocatively (al la HSOTD) and it isn't children I don't think honestly unless your mother truly worries she would have an issue here - would I show this to my ten year old well no but then I wouldn't show most anime to my ten year old.
