Kill la Kill is a fun show.

Kill La Kill is a NORMIE ANIME


I'm assuming you think the only good anime is shit tier waifu garbage or dry stuff?

Anonymous 41768034

It's only normie if you take the characteristic normie reaction of shock all through watching it. It isn't necessarily if you just recognize it for the mindless, innocent fun it is.


go drink mercury

It became what it was parodying and not in a fun or clever way.
Go watch Lifetime's (yes, that channel with the non-stop direct to TV battered woman movies) UnReal where they parody something and become it while still maintaining the parody.

it's so dumb. The characters have parodying traits that still make them likeable and the fight scenes still have an attention to detail and visuals that make them spectacular anyway even if they're stupid. It's almost as if the parody isn't even breaking down it's flaws and deconstructing tropes, as if it's celebrating the shit that's good while poking fun at the sillier parts. Man, parodies like that aren't a thing right?

no? being a normie anime doesn't even necessarily mean being a bad anime. some normie anime I like.

Kill La Kill just came off as super absurdly over-the-top and annoying.

People forget that action and comedy can be smart, and a slice of life oscarbait can be mindless. Oscarbaits tend to nail down oversimplified messages too hard that makes it look like the writers think the audience are dumbasses.

Action and comedies with clever writing and solid character development get a lot of focus or become a "normie" show (that term is getting broader and broader ya special snowflakes) for a reason. They can address political or social topics in an unexpected way that's driven by how the characters deal with them, and shown from multiple viewpoints if it drives the conflict. If it plays a significant role in a character's development you bet your ass it'll be approached intelligently too.

At least in a good amount of action and comedies. There's a good amount of slice of life animes with interesting characters and unusual premises with writing good enough that you forget it's slice of life. You know how it gets pulled off? By having interesting characters. You know what's cursed by a status quo of like four or so archetypes that we've seen a thousand times over and ultimately leaves the characters flat and forgettable? "X but with cute girls" animes. Or, waifu animes.


"super over the top and annoying" sounds more like a personal taste thing than a legit criticism. High-energy and silliness is kind of the point of action-comedy

>action and comedy can be smart, and a slice of life oscarbait can be mindless. Oscarbaits tend to nail down oversimplified messages too hard that makes it look like the writers think the audience are dumbasses.

I agree with this 100%. Oscar-winning movies are often really shallow shit hiding behind a controversial theme, wanting you to think it is intellectual, but too afraid to actually explore the controversial themes with any real depth or originality. it's edginess without actually being edgy. it's the difference between something like The Hunger Games and then something like Battle Royale.


it's totally a personal taste I just felt like I was watching anime Call Of Duty except it wasn't as fun as Call Of Duty

Well you don't seem to be going for a very in depth analysis on why you couldn't enjoy kill la kill. I mean call of casuals isn't exactly the best comparison since from what I've seen those games try to be cool and edgy rather than funny because it has parts that appeals to under-20 boys. I think a better comparison is probly team fortress two. Unless you can't get into that game either. In which case maybe silliness probly just alienates you from a show.

I wasn't really going for an in-depth analysis...I would have to watch it again to do that.

>cool and edgy

But isn't that kinda what Kill La Kill is?

also I don't really like TF2, it's boring to me, but silliness doesn't necessarily alienate me from a show, it's the execution of the silliness. Spongebob is my all-time favorite cartoon, Rick And Morty is a recent favorite, those shows are extremely silly but they are actually funny and entertaining and well-animated (first three seasons of Spongebob at least).

No kill la kill isn't cool and edgy it's cool and stupid! It only got serious or "edgy" for the sake of character development and to increase the tension and the season went on. Even with the tension it still had it's silly moments.

a better example of poorly executed cool and edgy shit is probly one vampire anime I don't remember the name of and Hellsing.

Is Kill La Kill just a retelling of the hero story of Shadow the Hedgehog?

It was entertaining. But it didn't, as a one season anime, have the effect or staying power one season animes can.
It was like a taxidermy peacock. All flashy and cool and neat to sit somewhere, but ultimately not full of anything with more substance than sawdust. And easily forgotten after the novelty wears off.

a show doesn't have to be historically significant to be good. try being descriptive of how it's not good if you wanna talk about it all legit like.
