THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
It begins.

So, in this episode:
  • Ryuuko was reunited with Senketsu.
  • Gurren Lagann Callback Transformation.
  • Ryuuko cut off Nui's arms and destroyed them. Regeneration impossible.
  • Nui gets saved by Rei - doesn't like it one bit.
  • Nui swears revenge on them, and also threatens to kill Rei.
  • ORIGINAL CLUB CAPTAINS SAVED. (Yes!)
  • Iori is a 3 Star - Sewing Spec Uniform. (Order Regalia)
  • Iori alters Junketsu's new form with Satsuki's DNA, as well as Ryuuko's blood and Senketsu's life fibers.
  • Satsuki can now use Junketsu more easily. (Unclear how far this goes)
  • Iori gets to work creating new, fighting-spec'd uniforms for all club captains and others. (YES!)
  • Touching "Forgiving Punch" moment with Satsuki, Ryuuko, and all their allies.
  • Ryuuko and Satsuki put their differences aside and have dinner with everyone.
  • Satsuki explains how Covers replicate and expand throughout the universe by essentially killing worlds.
  • Ryuuko has a moment with Senketsu - teases him about getting lonely.
  • Ragyou hints that the marionette threads must not have been tight enough, just after hanging up on a call about NUI.
  • COVERS and OLF attack the Naked Sun.
  • Ryuuko tries to call Satsuki "Nee-san" (Sister), but is stopped by Satsuki, who says that her blood flowing in Junketsu is enough for her.
  • Broketsu cries.
  • Sister Dual Transformation. Junketsu now has Senketsu's abilities due to the transfer.
  • Combat-spec COVER attacks the Naked Sun - is pushed back by...
  • FIGHT CLUB SPEC TWO STAR UNIFORM MAKO MANKANSHOKU. (See Spoiler)

    So. That was really. Really. Really. REALLY well done. A lot of exposition and action in the same episode - some clever hints were also dropped that even now, not all is as it seems.

    I'm getting really sick and tired of Crunchyroll/Aniplex's gross incompetence. They can release Kill la Kill in Spanish, German, Italian and Portuguese on time, but not English is just baffling.
    Underwater will take until the end of the day, so we've got a bit of time to wait.

    New Junketsu is looking good on Satsuki! I think we all knew she'd don it again. Now both sisters are in their Kamui ready for the series climax!

    I do hope that 6.1M is just a minor inconvenience for Japan. Looks like there's no risk for a tsunami, which is good.

    Finally, Ryuuko and Satsuki talked after this, they started fighting together and Mako is in the fight with banchou mode ^^
    Ryuuko wanted to say ''nee-chan'' but she feels embarrassed and blushed. I think that was very cute, seeing her blushing face.

    After last weeks episode I had so many doubts, concerning Mako and Satsuki, number one being just a stupid and useless side-gag without any real reason to exist or rather no real progression concerning character and plot and number two being kind of a Mary Sue, almost always spot on and Miss Perfect.

    Wow this episode blew everything away and I'm really thankful for that. Especially that Satsuki made some character development. About damn time!

    The club leaders are back! Thank god, they weren't introduced for nothing!

    Also armless Nui.(I guess she has been... disarmed) As much as I adore her, she goddamn deserved that! Hail the psychos! (◕‿◕✿)

    alright happy that they found atleast a somewhat logical reason for satsuki to wear junketsu again, albeit still weird after how much was needed to get ryuko out of it. pls no berserker mode satsuki because she loses control. just pls trigger

    dat synchronized transformation <3


    RETURN OF MAKOTARO


    great episode. cannot believe that kill la kill is almost over :(

    This is the last thing on my list I want to happen. If they put that one in, it's an instant 12/10 for me and I'm not kidding.

    This episode was so good, I had to watch it a second time after I finished it.
    Just kill Nui already, she's the creepiest thing I've seen in a long time.
    Senketsu crying and Ryuukos comment was pretty heartwarming to see.
    Satsuki wearing this black coat at sunset = most epic win ever.
    The Elite Four has to survive those last two episodes, pls.
    "Nee..nee...nee..." I think I would have died I've she'd finish this sentance.
    + Give the one who wrote the preview a medal "We have to beat her before
    this happens and this anime would be over."

    A lot of people seem to think that Satsuki is doing to die before the show is finished, given the flags that were raised in this episode, like acknowledging that Ryuko is her sister, and her talk of how this is her "last battle".

    The "ultimate Kamui" (Shinra-Koketsu, I assume) has three pairs of eye-like openings below its face (http://img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20140221180224/kill-la-kill/images/4/4a/Ep19-shinrakoketsu.jpg) like those of the Covers and the eyes seen in the background in the opening when it shows Satsuki tied up by Life Fibers.

    i know that is why i am worried. it is gonna be some bullshit like ragyo can give junketsu orders. pretty much the only thing that could happen that might ruin the ending for me.

    Production Issues... Delayed by approximately 12-24 hours, hmmm.

    So, wait, fan-subbers, who do this shit for free, have their shit together while mega-corporations, who possess vastly superior technology, deep pockets of cash and sizeable man-power can't deliver?

    Something to think about...
    Announcements I look forward to reading:

    "Haganai Season 3 green-lit"
    "White Album 2 Season 2 green-lit"
    "Naruto Manga Ends"
    "Bleach Manga Ends"
    "Nakashima Kazuki takes writing classes"
    "Gen Urobuchi writes something that doesn't bore (or kill off characters to keep interest)"

    I loved seeing more of the soft side of Satsuki that we've only seen glimpses of before and seeing Nui 'disarmed' was brilliant. The side by side transformation was epic too.

    But I must admit i found Mako and her family a total distraction this episode. I know what they're supposed to represent, but whenever they intervene, I feel that all seriousness/drama is sucked out of the situation. Which is fine when they're having dinner/spending time together, but not during the middle of combat.

    Good episode in my opinion.
    I liked how they handled the Ryuoko/Satsuki interaction.
    The end is close I'm gonna miss Kill la Kill.

    Seems like Satsuki and Ryuko are going to engage in a battle against Ragyo, and the four devas got their goku uniforms back. It's only been a few hours and I'm already craving for the next episode, damn

    HOLY SHIT GUYS IT'S HAPPENING
    THE TWO SISTERS FIGHTING TOGETHER AGAINST THEIR MOM
    RYUUKO BACK WITH SENKETSU
    RYUUKO BLUSHING AFTER BEING TOUCHED BY SATSUKI SPEECH
    RYUUKO TRYING TO CALL SATSUKI NEE-SAMA
    MAKO BEING BADASS AGAIN

    On a more serious note, was the big Cover the thing Nui was building?

    Nui have crossed the crazy line, she can't go back (neither get her arms back :P ).

    Gamagori always making two much xD

    oh my goodness, what an amazing episode! All I've watched were the raws but damn! I don't know, but I'm getting a bad feeling about Mako. I feel like she raised a death flag at the end of the episode, maybe I'm just over thinking it but still Dx Please more Gamako!

    YOOOOOOOO this episode was the bee's knees
    Let's see what we get here:
    More great character development from Satsuki
    Warm and cute moments with Senketsu and Ryuko
    JOTARO MAKO
    A bunch of humorous moments between the cast (Aikuro being surprised at satsuki calling him "Mr." was funny and cute)
    Wow this episode had everything, including Nui getting shit on. Too bad it's almost over now ;_;

    Two word to say: F*** Yeah!

    Another great character development episode...it was somewhat excruiating waiting for this episode to be released but man, it's crazy how I procrashinate just to watch this! MAKO is back wearing that Jo-Jo esque Two Star goku uniform, Ryuuko and Satsuki are finally bonding and the Four devas w/ the Naked Apes are now have a true alliance together...It was crazy how Nui's arms came off just like her eyes...thus making her lose her cool completely and being furious as ever.

    Also, dat senketsu bond with Ryuuko at the dinner...I guess he could be a little lonely at times! KLK never ceases to amaze me...10/10. Based Underwater Subs saved the week once again. Next week is going to be episode 19/20 part 2...pure madness.

    As much as I LOVE the action in the anime the heartwarming feelings that were shown when they were all eating and Satsuki laughing at the Elite 4 made me soo happy. When Ryuuko almost said sister I had a super grin on my face. All I was thinking it's so adorable.

    Then

    The double synchronization with Don't Lose your Way was icing on the cake and I know I've said this about every episode of KLK but wow this was AMAZING.

    He was always three star. IIRC the third star was like a chain thing that connected his coat.

    NOPE never mind. I was just seeing this. I'm blind.

    Hell to the freaking yes! This episode was epic and a nice way to end my favourite day for anime. I'm looking forward to the rest of this series and I'm so happy I picked it up 18 episodes in. (I would have dropped it after episode 1 because of excess nudity but the access to more episodes made me stick around.)
