yeah KLK isn't even scratching the surface of softcore anime porn. Hell, Minna Agechau was set to be the first US anime release (ctrl + F, 'minna agechau'), but the controversy over the "extra" bundled with the VHS (a pair of pink paper panties) nipped that in the bud. >>;


i could see KLK being called 'the saviour of anime' for a couple reasons:

-It's taking anime in a wildly different direction. rather than use the same art style, plot, character model and action style as basically every other series out there (why do i like Ore Monogatari! and Sukkitte Ii na Yo so much? because they're atypical romance series >>; ), KLK is doing things the KLK way, everyone else be damned.
-Trigger is a different studio all around. they were one of the first to get crowdfunding for a show, basically snuck into the market that way, and people love them for it. they all have the experience, but as i imagine most in the industry are, they were tired of seeing all the crazy, fun ideas wind up on the cutting room floor because they're not 'safe'. :\
-Because of its devil-may-care attitude, it's breaking us out of the anime ruts we've fallen into. on top of that, it's Leeroy-Jenkins-ing through the barriers of what's considered 'popular' to make sure that no one forgets that anime can be kooky, too. (if nothing else, it gave us an alternative to fucking AoT. >>;;; )
-The controversy may actually be HELPING it. the skimpy clothes aren't played for sex appeal, they're played for comedic effect, which few series have done. sure, there might be some protestors, but when they actually read/watch/look hard at the material, they can likely see that the series isn't doing this to corrupt the youth, they're doing it to poke fun at other anime/anime studios. -w-


i haven't seen it yet. but i really like KLK. it's fresh, it's exciting, it's hilarious, and it's by the underdog of the industry and managed to put them on the map. i wish it was more popular in this area than it was (all the kids want to talk about is Attack on Titan.....i'm seriously sick of it), but overall the fans ate it up and i really hope Trigger can give us more. :0

That actually is a good point; never quite thought about it like that, but then again, everything after season 2 of Haruhi is a strange void; all I've really watched since then is KLK and Madoka.

Also, I'd love to see Trigger do something new, yes :3

haven't watched anime for months now, hoping to get back on track with the shows i missed

hoping for a kill la kill movie... whether it has original content, or they just remake the tv series i don't care, just hoping it'll happen.

i'd expect an OVA more than a full-fledged movie, since idk if Trigger has the budget. :0

Just caught the first epiosde of Danmachi (can't remember its long-ass name)

Its okay so far... I expected that there would be more fanservice but I was wrong.

give it time, sometimes it doesn't rear its ugly head till ep. 2 or 3.

I need to get back to Jojo; I just started season 1 last week, and watched the first 5 episodes. It's good so far, yes :3

Also, IDK if maybe balancing it with Jojo is making it less painful or not, but the very last episode of MapleStory I watched was surprisingly not as painful as the previous ones, so I might try to push onward; in case maybe the show is getting better or maybe it's just the balance of WRYYY that's keeping me sane ^^;

EDIT: I just finished Act I of Jojo. It moved very quickly, TBH, and was surprisingly intense (It had a few comedic moments, but the first arc was a bit more serious than I was expecting, and in terms of violence, given this sub is sourced from the uncut BluRay release, it makes Bleach look like the old daytime Toonami cut of Dragon Ball Z). Now, for Act II (Which is covered by the remaining 17 episodes of season 1)
