I made it to the end, for better and worse. The short version? This is a real case of diamonds encased in shit, Ryumako is a good and canonical ship, the StuCo are cute kids, and if anyone tries to talk to me about this series in future without me bringing it up first I will melt them with fucking lasers, because this show has the most intolerable fanbase since Madoka and Evangelion.

Wow, I had no idea the fanbase for Kill la Kill was that bad (or for Madoka or Evangelion, come to that). I mean I like all of those shows, to greater or lesser degrees, but I guess I’ve just had very little contact as far as the deep fandom is concerned. Mostly I just watch stuff, write on my blog, and read a few other blogs. I assume I’d have to dive into fanart or fanfiction or some such to meet the intolerable fans you speak of.
Oh, you needn’t. You just need to hop over to twitter and say “I didn’t enjoy an element of this.” There are elements of all three shows I either like or respect, but God forbid anyone say that satan Homura was maybe a needlessly bleak, nihilistic, and homophobic narrative decision.
Ah, that’s my problem then – I’m on Twitter, but usually only use it to post automatic updates whenever I publish a new blog post.
I love the anime Psycho Pass but I feel there are elements of it that are pretty messed up too and the fandom “worships” Shogo Makishima and Shinya Kougami too much. I loved Kill la Kill. And yeah bi-goggles on for Ryu x Mako and well almost every character.
