Ride Like the Wind
Aikuro always delivers the goods. If I ever start my own rebellion, I will definitely name it Nudist Beach and have everyone get purple LEDs embedded into their nipples. He is definitely the love child of Hosaka and Haruka Minami.
“Do you believe that such armor can handle our ironclad rules!?”
Gamagoori is the best. How can you defeat logic this sound and, uh, logical? With meat armor? Gamagoori’s logic laughs in the face of your meat armor.
I enjoyed Ryuko’s dirt biking skills, and the way she rolls. Still, I am a bit disappointed that with so much build-up, the Tri-City raid has gone quite fast, and Ryuko has gathered 99.9% of Senketsu already. Feels like the show is both going too fast and trying too hard to fill up two cours of material. I wonder if the show would be better served if it had two cours with some time separation.

Hallelujah! My favorite part of the episode. Also the worst background drawn background art ever… seriously, Trigger, did you just MS Paint Mako’s trip to the food court? I feel like it should have been a major highlight. Look how derpy the hot dogs and boba tea look. And is that a cat? Or a dog? Or a dogcat? WTF is it? I guess that’s another argument against have a two cour season when you can’t handle it. In fact, how many studios these days can be counted on to keep production values up across two cours? Kyoto? And PirateKyoto? And MustacheKyoto?
(I also think Trigger has some sort of multi-arm fetish going on this episode. There are a lot of fast hands.)
