Puts you right into the action, looks like they were intending for a strong start. At first, I was drawn in.. but then comes the fanservice. It's not that I "hate" fanservice, it's just that it makes things slightly less serious for me. Thus, I can't take the anime as serious as I was hoping to.

Will watch the next few episodes though just to see where it's going.


They know the outfit is ridiculous, that's why they made fun of it. it's not intended to be fanservice, and most likely has a real purpose.

I don't understand why lightly dressed girls are always seen as fan service... forcing the label fan service on it just keeps sexism alive.
a better choice would be to grow the fck up


lol what? That outfit is definitely fanservice, but it has to be in order poke fun at ridiculous fanservice in the first place

If it's anything like TTGL, it doesn't want to be taken seriously. Even the fanservice is mocked and even the MC had a red face wearing that thing x]

It's the first episode so that shit doesn't matter to begin with. That score is as stupid to look at as are the episode 1 show reviews.

Very impressive action and animation. Hopefully Trigger can keep it up. It's very over-the-top, as expected.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
How did I not notice that :(
But I only see the MC about 10 times more badass now since I recognize meltdowner's voice,dammit!
was wondering why i liked her voice so much This is perfect!
She's probably my favourite VA of 2013. Loved her as Mugino as well.

MAL's ratings are serious business. If they're not according to your liking, it'll be the end of all of us.

Fun over the top action and a good soundtrack, pretty much all I could ask for in a first episode. Here's to hoping it can stay fresh though since my expectations or plot and character development is pretty low.

lol I'm sorry, I don't usually use peoples list ratings against them but your ratings make you look like the biggest moron paired with your comment.

Mitsudomoe rated:9
Lucky star rated: 9
K-on! rated: 9

I have honestly never seen a show like this before.

Yes, the plot line is pretty standard fare: feisty girl on a journey to get revenge for her murdered father, dystopian future when there is fascist rule by a dictator, a hierarchy system that keeps the weak down and the strong in control. This is all not too unfamiliar territory.
However, I've never seen anything truly presented in this way. This was loud, outrageous, ridiculous, and even a little risque, and I loved every minute of it. You know when the first line in an anime like this is about Nazis, we're in for a totally different ride than any thing we've been on before.

I know there was another popular show done by these people before, that many have said was similar, but I've never seen it and this was my first introduction. I wasn't sure about this show at first, but I'm totally into it now.

I give this episode an 8/10.

As much as I'm hyping this show, one thing I won't do is troll rate. I'll wait until this finishes airing and then I'll give it a 10/10.

I watched this not knowing what to expect (I didn't even finish TTGL). That was absolutely amazing. Got the old school vibe from it too.

Ahaha so that explains it. I was like "where did I hear this awesome voice before?" then I looked it up then boom.

Everything about this anime is.... AWESOME.
Although i could do without all of the fanservice.
But nonetheless, i love how this is set up and how fast paced it is and hhhhooooooo it's so cool!!
the setting, animation, characters, plot... so far all is great.
it reminds me of FLCL and Gurren Lagann
and it's by the people who produced Little Witch Academia!
I'm looking forward to this more.

I think people complaining about "overhype" are missing the point completely. Kill la Kill, much like TTGL, is so fun to watch because it consciously kicks logic to the curb and makes every little thing absurdly grand. It hypes itself up and it acknowledges that it's doing so, practically scene by scene. All this "ANIME IS SAVED," "11/10," "#basedtrigger," and so forth, is just fans doing the exact same thing that the show is doing. Getting into the mood of a show is completely natural. In this case, the resulting statements are such that, when taken seriously, they might mislead people into believing that all Kill la Kill fans have shit taste and think that they know everything about an anime after one episode. Obviously, that's not actually the case and people are just having fun.

tl';dr, by taking the "overhyping" seriously, you're missing the point of Kill la Kill itself.

Quoted for fucking truth.

Instant drop, not sure why I even bothered finishing the episode I knew I would be dropping this by minute 2.

Because it has a 8.25 with a single episode that wasn't good by any means?

I quite enjoyed it, a lot different from the style of shows we normally get.

I honestly got more of a Star Driver + Gurren Lagann + Panty and Stocking feel.

Will keep watching. Dat sailor outfit.

What does that have to do with being overrated? You didn't like it so it's overrated? People just rated the episode.. big deal.

There's pretty much no credible conclusion you can come to other than not liking the style of the show. You can't talk about the plot, story, characters, overall animation.. nothing. So I don't see how something can be overrated from one episode.

Pretty weird outline and animation style since i am not used to what Trigger has been doing for the past decade.

This was definitely worth a shot. An alright episode yet I was baffled on how weird the show is especially at the start.

Already hated TTGL and didn't like tis either. It looks well made though, so for anyone that enjoy this over the top style it's probably a must watch. But for me it was a drop after 5 mins. ^_^
