Kill la Kill (Anime Review)

Summary: Honnouji Academy, where an elite group of students is granted superhuman power by their special uniforms called the “Goku Uniform,” is ruled by student council president Kiryuin Satsuki. Matoi Ryuko transfers to Honnouji in search of the person who killed her father. Ryuko confronts Satsuki, who seems to have some information.

This is a really, really, really awesome anime! It’s definitely a must watch. It’s full of action, comedy, and some fanservice. I really love the plot. The truth behind all of this is gonna blow your mind, well at least it blew mine.

My favorite character is Mankanshoku Mako. Mako is Matoi Ryuko’s bestfriend. She is seriously funny. There would be a dramatic and emotional fight and all of a sudden Mako just pops up and throws in some comedy in it. Mako is a hyperactive, carefree, and loving girl. She can also be very lazy. In episode one, you see her sleeping immediately after she eats. Actually you see her sleeping everyday in class. In Honnouji, your rank is based on stars. The more stars you have, the stronger. The highest rank is a 3 star I think. The higher your rank is, the better your life will be (bigger house, more money etc). Since Mako is a no star student, she’s very poor. But her family is the funniest. They may be poor, but they’re a happy family.

I swear I love everything about this girl. She’s just so random. There’s a war going on behind her, and she’s just eating. Mako lights up the mood. She brings a smile to people’s faces. When Ryuko is in trouble, she doesn’t hesitate to jump in danger to save her. She cares so much about the people she loves. She’s basically the comedian of the show.

(STORY TIME!) The Mankanshoku family loves to eat. They always eat the same thing everyday but they don’t seem to get tired of it. Her family actually reminds me of my own. In one of the episodes, Mako and her family becomes wealthy and greedy. They act like one of those rich people who just throws money around. They don’t even eat at the same table anymore. Money changed them and the fun disappeared. My family and I used to eat together and it was so fun. Now, we don’t even eat at the same time anymore. It’s still fun sometimes, but everybody has their own thing going on now that they rarely have time for each other.

These four are called the Elite Four. They’re the top members of the student council, answering only to Kiryuin Satsuki. They all have 3 star Goku uniforms. They’re very loyal to Satsuki and are very protective of her. If you need bodyguards, they’re the best you can have. But they’re not just following Satsuki out of fear, they care about her for real.

Sanageyama Uzu – (Athletic Committee Chair) Sanageyama relies on his eyes too much that he was defeated by Ryuko so he had his eyes sewn shut so he can rely on his other senses more.

Gamagoori Ira – (Disciplinary Committee Chair) Gamagoori is the “Impenetrable Shield.” He is a large, and muscular young man and often shouts when a rule is broken. He is very honorable and has a strong resolve. When he was defeated by Ryuko, he was about to kill himself when Satsuki stopped him. Gamagoori’s relationship with Mako has evolved over time. At first, he viewed her as just a regular no star student but towards the end, it is implied that he has romantic feelings for her.

They’re so cute though, I totally ship them together! One time when Mako was lost, he vowed to her family that he would find her. He even put his life in danger to protect her >.<

Inumuta Houka – (Information and Strategy Committee Chair) Inumuta wears a collar-neck suit, which at the collar, opens whenever he talks. Inumuta usually wears clothes that have collars that can cover up his mouth and he wears blue glasses. Inumuta is a hacker. You can say he’s the brains in the Elite Four. He cares about his data a lot and he likes to collect people’s data when battling.

Jakuzure Nonon – (Non-Athletic Committee Chair) Although Nonon looks cute and sweet, she is highly manipulative. She often teases and mocks her fellow Elites. She calls Sanageyama a monkey, Gamagoori a frog, Inumuta a dog, and Mako an underachiever. Nonon’s 3 star Goku uniform represents that of a drum major and she’s the conductor. Nonon has known Satsuki since kindergarten so she believes that she is closer to Satsuki than the others.

I like Nonon. She has her annoying moments but her voice is somewhat cute. I don’t know why but I like her voice. :3

Ryuko doesn’t like how Satsuki does things. She challenged her every chance she gets. I would like to tell more about them but that would spoil the show so you are just gonna have to watch it. 🙂 It’s really good. It only has 24 episodes and it’s totally worth your time. Was their meeting fate or a coincidence? If you don’t already know, you will find out the truth about Goku uniforms and the truth about these two. So I recommend you guys watch it. See ya 😀 -R!n
