I particularly see:
- A well written storyline
- Outstanding animation
- Likable characters
And that nice touch from the 80's.

What I see in Kill La Kill. Hmm...could it be:
-The unique plot?
-The old-school style?
-The badass female leads?
-The hilarious supporting cast?
...or maybe it's the fact that it stands out from the crowd of crappy generic anime that are plaguing the anime industry these days and reminds me why I watch anime in the first place?

Those good enough reasons for ya?

Heres how I see it, Kill la Kill is popular because of the fanservice. They used "underhanded" tactics to grab everyones attention and it worked. Now imagine Kill la Kill without fanservice, imagine Gurren Lagann without fanservice. What I see is two shows that would still be good because of their narratives, yet not as popular because of the fact that they didn't use "underhanded" methods to get someones attention. Its the same reason people don't talk about Kara no Kyoukai and Shinsekai Yori, lack of fanservice. Even though those two storys are lightyears ahead of Kill la Kill. Kill la Kill had fanservice, the others did not. My whole beef is when a series uses fanservice as a focal point to garner the attention of the watcher, while totally sidestepping the narrative. I want to remember the story, not the tits.

Its completely overrated. 7/10 material. I went in expecting nothing but a fanservice anime, but I came out thinking it was a pretty good show that had a semi original premise, and how its take on society and social barriers was something to admire. Yet people don't remember it for that. Just like No Game No Life, people remember Kill la Kill for silly reasons like the fanservice and that "Don't lose your way" bullcrap. You know what that tells me? The only thing that interested them was meme crap and the titties. Kill la Kill is a perfect example on why you can't have your cake and eat it too. Anime companies of now have lost their touch and they can't figure out the perfect balance between fanservice and story. Even worse, the people just eat it.


this post is just too sad to even waste precious time like i just did but oh well... bro!!! you just dont get the message of the anime....watch it a few hundred of times to get it....

Lmao. If I created a thread for every anime that I've seen and have seriously asked myself the question: "What do people see in this anime? I'd really like to know"...

...That would be at least a hundred threads. And even if someone gave me a detailed answer for each one, I would likely still not understand. Because I'm not them.


Oh well. Have fun "arguing on the internet," kids.

I would think by now people know there are different tiers of fanservice. KLK took every chance and threw it in your face. In Shinsekai Yori, it was more subtle and meaningful.

Can that really be counted as fanservice? I thought it was used to reinforce the relationships between the characters and how the society promoted homosexual relationships among children so they wouldn't want to have heterosexual relationships too early and have children.

Good point

hmmm.. I don't even count the fanservice in KLK as fanservice. I didn't get turned on by the guy's shiny pink nipples... it was like shown to create a comedic effect.
even for the girls, I didn't even mind the excessive t's & a's.

And i'm usually a big hater of fanservicing. compare the fanservice in KLK to fanservices in Strike the blood, and you'll see what I mean. the fanservice in Strike the blood is annoying because its intent is to turn on the typical straight male, it's boring and annoying to watch... whereas the fanservice in KLK is created to induce laughter... so that's why I enjoyed the "fanservice" even though I don't consider it fanservice since its intent was not to turn you on...

I mean, there was a scene in KLK of two cats humping in the background...... if you call that fanservice... lol@you.

Exactly while I don't really get the hype for Kill la Kill and tried getting into this is pretty much how I feel about it. There is a laundry list of shows I don't get that other people seem to love and shows I love have a healthy group of people who hate them.

Someone in this thread said Kill la Kill is made by the same folks that made Gurrin Lagann and I didn't care much for that either so maybe it's just that style I don't particularly like. To each their own if you love the show cool if you don't cool.

I will admit if someone made a video with just fight scenes from the show strung together I'd probably watch it.
