Seems like they were inspired by 1984 including the doublespeak.

Gotta have that drill

I also wonder if the BDs will give us a bit more fanservice

I'll check it out. I'm not as big a fan of Imaishi as most though.

I'm afraid every PV I see for this show makes me less and less interested. Though I have to admit that I was pretty slow to warm up to Gurren Lagann, too.

And the prize for this season's Least Practical Armor goes to.... Ryoko Motoi in Kill La Kill, for armor that only covers her shoulders and nipples, leaving the entire rest of her torso bare and open to attack!! But that's okay, because like all impractical armor, it also comes with the magical ability to make your enemies be idiots and never ever attack those areas!!

The hype is strong with this one. So much that Kill La Kill is about to be the first anime I'm going to watch as it's being aired since Fate/Zero.

Wow, Aniplex's translation of the PV is awful. They're spending all this time/money hyping up the series but they can't spare a few pennies to produce a proper translation for it?

And the fact that a commercial is region locked and requires me to use a proxy to watch it is just ridiculous.

From the expression on Ryouko's face, I have a feeling the outfit is meant to be funny.

Even Cutey Honey would blush at that outfit.

The Law of Diminishing Defensive Effort

  • The less actively a combatant pursues her own defense in a fight, the less likely she needs to.


Just protect the "sensitive" areas. Sensitive = weakness

At least they're readable. I actually like how the typesetting was used for all that flashing big text; much better than that fan translated one.

And I think from my tone, so was my comment. Wink
