Kill la Kill Episode 23: Almost there…

So it was the two-episode battle after all. I was a little worried that they might waste more time with a second full side-by-side transformation at the end of the episode, but we were spared that. The Original Life Fiber went down pretty easy with the power of friendship. I would like to point out, though, that given how much this show has remained similar in style to Gurren Lagann, we may have to expect a similar sacrifice for the final episode. My personal guess is Ryuuko because she’s the one most linked to the Life Fibers on the team, but she does have protagonist plot armor.

Now the final battle against Ragyo awaits. I had the mistaken impression that she was linked to the Original Life Fiber and that she would die with it. That’s why I was more expecting Nui to be the one wearing the ultimate Kamui instead. They did devote some time to restoring Nui’s arms, though, so I guess she would be playing a part in the final battle. Otherwise, what would be the point?

Wow, Mako is actually participating in the last fight? Doesn’t that kinda break the point of her character? Anyway, I guess the epic tag team is finally happening between the two main characters. A bunch of touchy-feely moments before the battle begins hints at a sacrifice to me.

The big encounter with Ragyo (for the…third time?) starts next week. The only question now is whether there will two episodes devoted to the battle or one episode devoted to battle and an episode of epilogue. Long, drawn-out battle or cheesy epilogue? My guess is the drawn-out battle because there will probably need to be extra time devoted to the uniform that Nui is crafting. Who’s supposed to be wearing that anyway? Nui?
