When Kill La Kill originally wrapped things up and all that shit that happened went down, I, I still couldn't believe what was going on with Satsuki Kiryuin. So I rewatched it, the whole thing, this time with a much more open observation of the events with my previous unraveled conceptions of the plot in mind from my first viewing, since then I have watching select episodes of it a dozen times now over these past few months (as well as made a rather unusually large amount of fan art of it much like when I suddenly became a "brony"). In this long stretch time I have come to three conclusions, two of which a very unusual one on a personal level......

:bulletblue:First Conclusion- Satsuki Kiryuin is my absolute favorite character in the whole goddamn series. Just wow, taking everything in retrospect and just rewatching the series I now know for sure she the one character I enjoy watching out of the whole shindig. Not only is she now one of my favorite "villains" in fiction but more so now one of my absolute favorite female characters in fiction period. Like literally she's pretty much tied for number one with Sir Integra from Hellsing.

:bulletred:Second Conclusion- I don't like Kill La Kill.....or more to the point I don't like its story. The actual plot, the script at it's core. Much like with such series as the Big O it kind of loses its shit around the second half and just kind of plays hot potato with its plot points turning into quite a chaotic mess. The primary example of this would be Ryuko suddenly hating Senketsu, getting turned evil with Junketsu and then just as quickly turn back to good all within the span of like two or so episodes. It's literally story whiplash. But all the same I don't hate it, I'm just indifferent to it. There are still episodes of it I will watch again and again and again but the whole complete package is....well....I have no idea I'm still gonna be on the fence about it for years to come.

:bulletpurple:Third Conclusion- I love Kill La Kill's characters. I am indifferent to the series plot as is but at the same time I simply adore this cast. This has to be the most interesting cast I've seen in a hit anime in a long time, just something about them makes it seem like you could literally put them into anything and they would be pure magic. You would just be so enriched watching these characters in anything regardless of tone, just wind them up and let 'em go!


And that's why I'm so conflicted with Kill La Kill. I mean what is a plot without characters? Out of all the elements you need for a plot you need characters, if you have no characters you have no plot, period. So really I shouldn't even like these characters because they are the core element of the plot I don't like. But no! I love the Elite Four! I love Nudist Beach! I love all the side characters, especially Maiko Ogure oh my sweet Celestia I love her she's like literally if Starscream from like TFPrime was a little human girl just so much fun to watch! I love Mako! I love Ryuko and Satsuki and I love..........ummmm..........wasn't there some other key characters in there I should be remembering? I'm drawing a blank here..........I got nothing.......so long story short (too late) it's a serious disconnect of interests I'm conflicted with here and I'm about one step away from just going crosseyed @_@.
_________________________________________________________

Actually if anything this very perception I have with Kill La Kill is just like my current perception of a previous series I once hold much admiration for....Bleach.

Ah Bleach, I dunno what it was but just something about it caught my eye and the story at the time just stole my heart. It was the only one of Shonen Jump's "big three" that I genuinely enjoyed reading, the other two started feeling like a mere obligated chore I had to do but Bleach, for the longest time it was my absolute favorite series to read. Hell I was so antsy about what was going to happen with the fight between Ichigo and Byakuya I eventually stopped watching the anime altogether (thank Primus) and stuck solely with the manga from that point on. More than anything it's because of Bleach that I even read manga as much and frequent as I do (otherwise it would have been decades before I even got into Jojo as much as I have). And again, I don't like the plot, around halfway it loses its shit and is now playing hot potato with plotpoints turning into quite a chaotic mess. Yet through it all I still love the characters, especially the main hero Ichigo Kurosaki. This is the most interesting cast of characters I've seen in a hit anime for a long time, a collection of characters that I enjoy seeing in action.......though again I'm kind of drawing a blank on a few central key characters or maybe just one character in particular.......Primus this is gonna bug the hell out of me all night.....

But even so I do have to bring up a key point in all this. For how much my perceptions of the two are strikingly similar there is still a real key difference between Bleach and Kill La Kill, one that is actually two fold - I don't like Kill La Kill's plot but at the same time I don't hate it....I absolutely LOATHE what Bleach had become after Aizen's immediate defeat. The worst part is I still find Naruto to be a hundred times worse than anything Bleach is capable of but that does little to lessen the plunging drop that this series I once loved reading has taken in recent years. And more importantly Kill La Kill was a very short experience, any problems I have with the story have come and gone in a mercifully short amount of time to the point any issues I have don't bother me as much as it might seem....Bleach is not even finished and has been lingering on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on....AND ON.....AND ON.....AND ON.....OH BY THE HAIR ON MY CHINNY CHIN CHIN JUST GET ON WITH IT! Yeah as I've said several times before Bleach has degraded into pretty much a mere obligated chore I have to do, I sure as hell can't just quit now I gotta ride this storm out to its bitter end. Oy vey.
___________________________________________________________

But in the end, Ichigo Kurosaki is still one of my favorite characters in anime and manga for better or worse, just like the cast of Kill La Kill are still some of my new favorite characters regardless of my indifference to the plot. Strangely enough the more I think about it the more it sounds like what I said before one time in a tumblr post, you don't actually have to like Sephiroth from FF7 to enjoy One Winged Angel. You can think he's the most overrated villain in video game history and yet still find his accompanying theme music to be the most epic theme music ever.

Or maybe it's not like that at all and I'm just being an idiot about this whole debacle. Don't really care, I'm gonna go download Power Rangers SPD off of iTunes now and maybe Time Force and some other season, should I look into RPM and Megaforce? Speaking of which they got the first four episodes of Kill La Kill in original Japanese for sale on iTunes right now so there's that, so far I'm liking the English dub...

End of Line.

Welcome to my Carnival of Rust

I am your host, Ringmaster Terry "Tyrranux" Jones, a most disturbed individual when you scratch deep past the surface, on the outside though I'm just a run of the mill loser like everyone else. Here on Deviantart is where I have set up shop, my carnival of dead dreams and hopeful wishes gallore...

Go ahead, take a look around. We have all manner of attractions here. We got the ever popular three ring Tyrranux Universe circus, a collection of mutants and freaks giving you a crossover clusterfuck extraveganza that is not for the faint of heart, parental supervision is vastly required for this show. If you wish you can visit the museum where all of my written tombs come to life if you wish them to. We got several Transformers petting zoos and even a Mega Man themed fashion show featuring your favorite stars. There is also Kingdom Hearts gallore, so many other things and maybe a Little Pony or two just for the kids. There is nothing too childish, girly, dark, sinister or whatnot for my show, well maybe somethings I won't have in my show but overall I got a lot of stuff for a wide audience.

So come on into my big top, all are welcome and admission is free. Just be careful of the rust, it leaves such a nasty stain...

I sent an angel to watch over you last night but it came back.
I asked, "why?"
The angel said, "angels don't watch over angels."
Twenty one angels are IN your world.
Ten of them are sleeping, Ten are playing, one is reading this message.
Send this to ten friends including me.
I guess if I don't get it back I'm not one of them. As soon as you get five replies someone you love will quietly surprise you.
Please read, not joking. God has seen you struggling with something. God says it's over. A blessing is coming your way. If you believe in God send this message on. Please don't ignore it. You are being tested. God is going to fix two things BIG tonight in your favor. DROP everything and pass it on. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Don't break this chain. Send this to 14 friends in 10 minutes. It's not that hard.

Hey Terry, you ever heard of MUGEN?

It's a fighting game engine that allows you to pit...oh, I don't know...just about every fighting game character there is against each other.

You can do DC superheroes VS. Marvel superheroes...Saiyans VS. Stand-Users...heck, I know for a fact that there are even My Little Pony characters available for MUGEN!
(You'll need to find them and download them, though.  MUGEN only comes default with a character named Kung Fu Man.)

And the best part?
It's completely free.

I should know...I have it.
So...what do you think?  Is it something that you think you would like?

Well for those that just "generally know" Thor, and for those that do know Thor a bit better this is a odd development to say the least. There ain't much to care about, either it's an okay transition or adds some personality to the character; heh....Death comes to all, whether in by object or being.
