Glorious episode.

Ryuuko and her pajamas are adorable. Heh, I just love the intensity of this show. That driving scene was fucking epic. Hell, even Mako was epic. Dat OST though lolol.

5/5/5/5.
That girl with the glasses in the outfit looks awkward though ;o

That Budget

That Takeshi's Castle

That GTA bus

That plot twist

The craziest episode yet, can't wait for subs to decode what the hell is going on.

Same studio, so no surprise, I guess. I wonder if Inferno Cop will have a guest appearance in at some point.

This episode was hilarious with it's randomness and awkward animation, it just left me questioning a lot of things, but I love the fact that this show just throws out logic with episodes like this.

This episode was crazy. All that work to get to school haha. The scene with Mako on the turret then the bus flying was hilarious. I always enjoy Mako's little speeches lol.

Glad that glasses girl got uppercutted the crap out of by Ryuko, then caught and expelled by Gamagoori.

The OST this episode was very fast pace and fitting. Loved it. Overall this episode was pretty damn funny and exciting.

Don't know whether I find Mako hilarious or just annoying lol. She sometimes can be a little too much.

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.

Not feeling this week's episode.
I like things to be over-the-top and random but getting to class on time in this show is not one of them.

Enjoyed seeing Senketsu being washed and ironed though.

Dat animation. This episode might not have been as good to me as some of the others but it was still fun to watch. Such a crazy adventure just to get to school on time.

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

Mako is so hilarious with her convincing logic XD...lol'd at the argument about the pj's XD

Gutz and the dad...etc scenes with the nose bleeds were so lol too.

And finally Senketsu at the start when he was getting ironed hahahaha XD

Well nxt ep seems to have some serious stuff so let's see.

When you got no budget, go for random!

Some facepalm moments and a couple of true LOL moments here and there. At one moment I thought Inferno Cop would showing up.

I loved that one scene with the cute lady who was breastfeeding her baby and then she suddenly takes out a thompson smg lol

Not as awesome as the last episode but makes up for this by being plain wacky and hilarious XD

I wish I could say that it was nice to have a break from the main plot, but it kind of wasn't. Fun episode nonetheless.

Yeah it is the worst episode so far, but still heaps-load of fun to watch. Serves as a good "filler" (or breather) between the Satsuki battle and the upcoming villain of the week stuff.

Poor animation at times yeah, but that was the same case with Gurren Lagann's 4th episode so I'm not worrying one bit.

Ryuuko with the pink and white stripe panties. Nice.
Funny ass episode. No star students got it rough.
Senketsu only likes one type of blood.

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 ._.

Great episode, love the pajamas and maximum randomnes.

I think Senketsu is the manliest sailor fuku I've ever seen. I still can't get over the last episodes "GET NAKED"! Why other girls uniforms can't behave like that? :(

It's a waltz by the Austrian composer Johann Strauss II called "An der schönen blauen Donau" or "The Blue Danube", the common English title for it.

The worst ep so far, but that's not saying much. It was still good, and I got some PaS vibes from it.

Best episode I've seen from this show so far. The comedy was immaculate and it's good how it's not taking itself too seriously.
