i think they are fine. i have never heard english dubs live up to the japans 'gritty' voices.
like in full metal panic. the subbed voices were harder.
i dont think its perfect, but close. im excited to watch it again.

Indeed, at best we have 3 VAs capable of proper deep voiced males. They just don't have near enough actors to have that range of talent.

Add in the fact of knowing voices, you have even more problems. Gruff characters are either Piccolo, Lu By, or Spike.

Either Chris Sabat, Jamieson Price, or Steve Blum.

Everybody else is hit or miss, while the guys sound like other characters.

Guys, there's a tournament for the best girl of mid-2014 going on at the moment. We would love for you all to swing by and show your support for the show, and as you consider the possibility I'd like to call something to your collective attention: Satsuki Kiryuuin is the only surviving Kill la Kill character in the tournament, and she's losing at a vote ratio of just over 2:1 right now. She has less than 24 hours to close that gap or she'll be eliminated, and at that point our show is out of the game entirely.

You don't have to come and participate, but I'd appreciate it if you did.

Is Satsuki just a fight maniac who wants a good challenge. No she's clearly more disciplined than that.

So why let Ryuko become stronger, why help your enemy grow

unless she doesn't see Ryuko as an Enemy

It all comes down to that smile, the one she made right after dodging Ryuko's Decapitator strike.
That Smiles says it all, it says

"Finally"

Look at the backstory we have so far thanks to nakid-Teacher.

Satsuki's parents started this, clearly with ambitions of their own.

Is Satsuki the sort of passive princess who rides on the ambitions of parents?
hell no

She seems more like the person who looks at the queen sitting on her throne and says "Get the hell out of my chair before I drag you out of it"

To do that she needs an Army
but we now have a clear idea on the power of the Goku uniforms and it's clearly not enough, hence the experiments to make a 5 star uniform (and the implication that a 4 star may have already been made)

So she has an army and she knows it's not enough

when suddenly there she is
a girl set on revenge
wielding a scissor blade
and strong enough to tame a Kamui uniform

an Equal
someone strong enough to help her pull the Queen down off her throne

she just needs a little push




basically I'm expecting this series to end with our two main girls teamed up against a wickedly evil MILF


Reading through the old pages.

And THIS MOTHERFUCKER CAAAAAALLED IT.

It's almost scary how damn accurate this line of logic is. Do you know when this post was written Felstalker? Also, if you are reading this by chance, Greylurker, tell me how you came to this conclusion. I'm curious as to how you possessed such sheer accuracy.

Shortly after Episode 3.

I had the date earlier, it's on the quoted post.

Lots of accurate posts during that time, this one called Ragyo several episodes early.

Wow.....that really was pretty dead on.

To be fair some of my other predicitions turned out dead wrong (EX: At one point I said the one who killed her father might be on the side of justice........Nui....side of Justice.... yeah that was a wrong guess)


If I had to guess I'd say there are three reasons I guessed right.
1) Trigger did a superb job of establishing the personalities of the girls early on. Their reactions, their facial expressions, the little subtlties scream volumes about who they areand how they think. In only 3 episodes there was no way Satsuki could be a pawn of a higher power, despite minor foreshadowing suggesting that she might be.

2) I'm Old and I've seen a lot of stories. Patterns tend to repeat and the show established some key ones very early in. Ryuko was the Hero obviously, but Satsuki had a lot of key indicators not of a villain but of a Dark Hero. That meant the real villain hadn't shown themselves yet and Satsuki's parents seems a good contender for that (Evil King/Queen role)

the idea of the girls having a final showdown with Satsuki's Dad just didn't feel right, despite the flashback at the start of episode 3. This show was a girl's thing that meant final boss had to be mom.

and there was no way mom wasn't going to be sexy, thus Evil MILF

3) I used to work in the animation industry. I'm used to paying really close attention to visuals, more so than other people might, and that helps to pick up things. Work experience has me disecting the visuals of a scene on instinct a lot of the time.

Thanks to everyone who came over and voted Satsuki in the Best Girl thread! Satsuki is almost (but not quite) caught up to Chitoge Kirisaki at this point, so we need even more votes in order to keep things going! While I have you, there seems to have been a bit of confusion on how to vote. For your convenience, I offer these instructions:

On Voting in the Best Girl Tournament

1. You must include Satsuki's name and the show's title.
2. You must write a brief description of a catfight between Satsuki and Chitoge.
3. Outside influences like the Elite Four may help Satsuki win, but weapons aren't allowed.

On Changing a Vote in the Best Girl Tournament

1. Go back to the first voting post you ever made and edit it to reflect whatever changes you want to make.
2. Quote your now edited voting post and post a notification that your vote has changed, explaining how.

If there are any questions, please let me know.
