Kill la Kill has always had a bit of a problem making each battle feel more dramatic than the last. However this time they had a truly dramatic looking final boss. The single original alien that came down to earth. A dramatic awe inspiring cannon looking thing that floated through the sky, threatening to destroy civilisation. With the worst mother in the world riding on board. Truly something you could call an awe-inspiring final bos-
What’s that? They killed it and instantly replaced it with the worst mother in the world wearing a silly outfit? Damnit Kill la Kill!
My favourite part of this episode was Mako NO WAY SCAMP YOU LIKED THE SCENES WITH MAKO THE MOST PINCH ME I’M DREAMING. But really, the reason why I loved them in this episode specifically was because it was her time to shine. We gave you 22 episodes of Mako’s only power being the powah of lurve, which is still a pretty awesome power as you can tell by all the songs made about it. But now we get her moment where she actually gets to kick some ass and it is so fulfilling. Even if her moment of actual glory came from her running in an oversized hamster wheel. On that note, isn’t it just great that the powering mechanism for nudist beach is giant hamster wheels. I’m trying to think of a powering mechanism that comes from being naked but all I can think of are dick windmills and that’s not even the first time I’ve said “all I can think of are dick windmills”.
Where was I before I started thinking about spinning penises…I can’t remember, I’ll just assume I was talking about Mako being amazing since that’s what I’m usually talking about. Mako Mako Mako Mako Mako, do you think we’ll see her get together with Gamagoori in the final episode? I don’t feel like this is the kind of show to ever hold anything back that fans might want. Hence why yes, I can totally see Gamagoori and Mako hooking up somehow. On the other hand, what would be absolutely amazing for Kill la Kill to do is go full Gainax end and have a completely incomprehensible ending that is weirdly grimdark and kills the important characters while resolving nothing. That’s not really Imaishi’s style. Panty and Stocking’s ending was a deliberate piss take on the Gainax end. But I would love to see it happen just for the pure WTF-ness. I am so uninvested in anything storywise that pulling a stunt like that right at the end would be perfect for me.
A special word, by the way, for the two seamstresses in this show. Both on the worst mother’s side and Satsuki’s side. I get the feeling the writers have a soft spot for both of them, given that neither of them started off as important characters but have been increasingly getting more and more screentime. They’re both getting moments of awesomeness as the show hits its ending. OK one of those awesome moments was to be absorbed into the worst mother’s chest, but if there’s ever a way to die it would be to be absorbed into Evil Lady Gaga’s Bosoms.
