THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Pretty intense episode. I was cringing my teeth since I heard Mako might die...

When I saw Mako almost getting shot on the road, yeah..
Dat explosions and gunfire. The flashback was pretty awesome. Young Satsuki is pretty epic in this episode.

I'm ready for this battle royale~

Ryuuko's flashback about her dad was pretty freaking sad. She went to chase the killer, then had to watch her home being burned down ;_;

Lol Gamagoori sucks at driving. And he's a complete masochist. Can't wait for the fight between him and Ryuuko next week though.

Good ep. Nxt ep though should be EPIC!!! Can't wait for that. The build up was pretty awesome.

We got to know a bit more about Ryuko's past.

Gamagoori's bondage M suit was O_O XDXD...Wonder how Ryuko will win against that.

I wonder if each Elite 4 will get an ep?

By the way, is the show going to be 25 episodes long? Thought I saw that it was only 12 before. Fine with me! ^__^

I still can't see how the flashback of Gamagoori's first time meeting Satsuki explains how he's a masochist.. Or else the flashback is out of place and should've been shown at some other point.. No xS ?

Also nice to have a flashback episode, this episode might be lacking in action compared to the other ones but it's necessary.

So, Mako did not die. And looks like it will take much longer to see a Ryuuko vs. Satsuki fight again.

Intense episode. Love the flashbacks in this. I like how they showed Ryuuko aged and how her personality changed. Sad to she her father die like that after she hasn't seen him in years. During Gamagoori flashback you got to ask yourself. How long has Satsuki been a bad ass. Wasn't expecting Gamagoori to be a masochist (and a 20 year old high school student).

Now this is how you play king of the hill. Ryuuko vs the elite four. It's hard to say what's going to happen. This is not one of those anime where the main character kicks everyone's ass. If Her and Uzu are going to fight. He will most likely win again. Idk. Any I'm hype for next Thursday. Good food and Kill la Kill.

Yes! Finally, this is what I've been waiting for since the Sanageyama episode. If they can keep this quality in episodes here on out it'll be amazing. Amazing action and build-up plus comedy worked in (masochist scene, Mako singing) without going overboard like they've done before. Can't wait for the next episode.

"Don't loose your way..." - so easy to sing along.

This episode was pretty damn good. Then again, any episode where Gamaagori gets to laugh like a maniac is a good episode.

It's called DOOOOOOOON'T LOOOOOSE YOUR WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY.

Kinda like that.

KLK so far is just a masterpiece of hammy ham-ham with a little ham on the side. I love it.

I didn't care much about Ryuuko flashback. It was trying to be sad and dramatic and kinda failed me in this regard.

Gamagoori had a great flashback though with Satsuki taking the spotlight!

Also non-subtle penis reference made me happy.

Next episode is going to be intense. I wonder how Ryuuko will get a powerup to defeat the elite four O.o

And this show still might place itself in my top 5 anime of all time!

Well, wow. Great episode, loved every instant of it. The elite four are as enjoyable as the main bosses from TTGL, if not more. I personally love Nonorin and Gamagoori at the moment. Also, they don't seem like bad guys after all. Possible antispiral-like turn of the tables?

Natural elections.

Flashback to when Ryuuko's dad was killed.

Intense ost during the scene Gamagoori transforms.

Lol/wtf at Gamagoori being a masochist.

Tournament against Elite Four begins.

Totally agree...Btw, dat avatar you have there. Where did you get it? I want a link of that... xD

New poster here, man I really loved all the things that happened in this episode, and I really want to watch Episode 9 right now...didn't know why they just have to stop it there.

Also dat TTGL reference where Gamagoori did that pose with the stuff sticking out of his body during the climax in the episode...dem feels. Addicting show, AOTY?

I really loved the directing in this episode. The change in aspect ratio from today's standard of 16:9 to 4:3 of the past was a great idea to show the ovearll change in time.

I doubt that Ryuko's going to beat the elite four, unless she gets a sudden powerup.
After seeing Gamagori's transformation i'm curious to see what the last two members will look like.

So hype for next thursday.

Something interesting this episode was Gamagoori's power. He revealed that he acould attain a second level of transformation, it's obviously a thing, since it was later mentioned by Senketsu, meaning that other members from the elite 4 might also have that as their ace in the hole.

That also means that both Satsuki and Ryuko can possibly become more powerful by attaining the second level of their Kamui fusion in future episodes.

I wonder how that would look...

They did that in episode 6 for Sanegayama's flashback as well. Also the change in Hue and scan lines give it that extra old school feel. It's a nice touch

Pretty cool build up episode anyway. Gamagori's transformation was massively gayer than I expected, but I still lol'd. That and when Ryuko was contemplating whether to accept Gamagori's help while Mako jumped in his ride immediately. You know what 0_o, dude has a pink car, fights with whips and now his transformation? I really have been ignoring the signs....

I never really got the feel that the Elite Four and even Satsuki were all that bad to begin with. Corrupt? A little. Outright villainous? Not a chance. That flashback pretty much confirmed that. Still in the dark with Satsuki's overall motive but I'm sure that'll be revealed soon enough

Oh and I almost forgot, the return of the original "Don't lose your way", :') I almost thought it'd be another episode gone without hearing it. Thank you based Trigger
