Kill La Kill continues being absolutely outrageous in the best way possible. It's been obvious before how low the budget must be for this show. However, all the more props to Trigger for making the best out of it working around those limitations with creative directing and its sheer amount of energy whereas other shows would have failed miserably under these conditions.
If there's one point that this episode got across is how radically the government (or student council, strictly speackng) operates when it comes to seperating the wheat from the chaff with the expulsion from school being the worst punishment possible. It shouldn't be a surprise to see a handful of deluded students attending pseudo-homeroom, unable to accept the truth since failing at high school literally means failing at life in this world and attending school provides the only possibility for normal people to climb up the social ladder.
From this perspective it becomes clear why Mako and her mother insist on going to school despite knowing of its cut-throat nature.
Those who do succeed proceed to ostracize those who were not up to the task, actively keeping social segregation alive and trying to prevent low-status citizens from reaching their level (hello, machine-gun wielding grannies in your clean and proper apartments) in order to protect their privileges since well-maintained residential areas are sparse.
This way the student council successfully establishes its reign by pitting the different classes of population against each other, bestowing privileges upon the upperclass while keeping the threshold for the rise in status of those who are less privileged as high as possible, if not nearly impossible to pass (if those obstacles set up for this one-semester special event are anything to judge by) which might just be their intention from the beginning.
This was more of a breather episode for me. Considering last weeks finale like duel between Satsuki and Ryuko. Im assuming this is a 2-cour anime series, so we can expect a few breathers like this before we jump back into the action packed "plot" related episodes :P
Funny episode and way over the top but I'd prefer if it got back to the "regular" (for this series) stuff. Nevertheless, this episode was enjoyable. Next episode seems to be more serious and she is naked again ._.
