>>123725547 You never used google image search to mine for images? You can just paste the url link into the image field when posting. Not everyone is so anal that they scrutinize what the host site of every image they post is.
>>123726059 it's a great show... it's a shame most people only see the fanservice and don't understand it's there for jokes/it's part of the plot/it's part of the whole "everything is exaggerated" thing.
>>123726598 Gamagoori's crush was completely ignored in the OVA though, even with all the other pandering and running gags brought back. That tells you that Trigger regretted it and wants to emphasize Ryumako more.
>>123725612 Honestly I have to admire this level of dedication. Also surprising to see this level of nitpicking from a yurifag, usually it's the fujoshi who seem more into going over every interaction to find gayness.
I gotta say I find it funny that a hundred female characters--some of them just about outright stated to be lesbians--jumping on a male MC's dick apparently makes perfect sense but a female MC's closest person jumping on her vag is just an unreasonable, totally out there conclusion even when they're literally asking the MC out on a date

>>123727762 >Mako is absolutely ridiculous This is your issue, every character in the show is ridiculous, it doesn't mean they didn't truly meant it, she would have used other word otherwise. This was already discussed multiple times.
Ryuko loves Senketsu, and Mako has always supported them. Even taking the hallelujahs seriously, the ones immediately before and after the one in question she calls them a perfect couple. It's literally her driving motivation throughout the show.
For the actual date, even if Mako didn't use the phrase for a friends date, it's shown to be explicitly that with Satsuki coming along too and the Devas planning to join up as well, while Ryuko daydreams of the aforementioned Senketsu. Ryumako is a construct of tumblr burying their heads up their own asses.
>>123725514 You know, I have a question. Is it possible to have a thing for a samegender without being gay per se? You know, kinda like when there are people who are into /y/ stuff which is straightforward gay, and there those who appreciate traps who look feminine but actually have a dick somewhere, and there some people who have a thing for a good'ol female anus which is supposedly psychologically gay or whatever; and Ryuko/Mako is something among these lines but in reverse or something
>>123729122 Ryuko never said she put them on the same level she just said they're both people that go beyond friends for her, and Mako never tried to be. Senketsu isn't a father figure either, that's something again pushed by Tumblr to justify Mako breaking them up in their mind.
Specifically, Ami Koshimizu said Ryuko thinks of Senketsu as her best friend, her family and her lover and that it's not the kind of relationship two humans could achieve.
It's pretty hilarious people are trying to apply logical reasons to an already prove illogical character. Mako is Mako,you'd have better luck making sense of people who eat peanut butter with their hot dogs.
>>123729491 She never tries to come between them. Whether Mako wants to jump her bones, or whether that's just the kind of clingy person she is (and the show leans on the latter), it's irrelevant Ryuko doesn't respond the same way, she responds platonically.
Or do you think just because Gama wants to jump Mako's bones her feelings are the same?
Why are you people still trying to find any logical meaning in a show that exagerates every little thing? I loved it, but that doesn't mean I'm going to rewatch it 10 times with the purpose of finding out if Mako wants the pussy.
>>123729537 In the pic, Ryuko wasn't comparing them she was telling Nui that she wasn't alone. The conclusion Ryuko comes to throughout the show is that more than revenge, knowing what kind of person she is, or even having the life she never got, her firstmost wish is to wear Senketsu.
>>123729786 It's funny because when western director gets asks if it's gay he's like OF COURSE THAT WAS MY PLAN ALL ALONG, and when japan directer gets asks he's like "pfft no, there's only friends here"
>>123729790 Of all the possible conclusions you can get from this you choose that? I mean, I can easily say her wish is have her date with Mako because that's the reason she gave to Ragyou, but I don't. In no part of the show Ryuko reached one single conclusion.
>>123729943 Closer than friends and family, everything points they have a romantic bond.
>>123729786 I am guilty of watching Korra (one of them not so bright decisions of my life) and this ending was NOT about friendship. They did not kiss, but overall it was the ultimate cheese romantic ending
>>123730104 That's her way, the thing she gave up hatred for was to be able to wear Senketsu, wearing him is the thing that defines her. Ryuko was willing to kill herself twice rather than not be able to wear him, and in the end she realizes she's always wearing him in her heart.
>>123730322 Absolutely no one has given something to contradict the end of the show, or the behaviour the characters had through it though. Meanwhile people post complicated explanations, you can just say what actually happened without having to say anything more.
>>123730147 Whenever someone asks Trigger about the deeper meaning in Kill la Kill about empowerment they basically went "Uh no? You're reading way too much into this", and they said it's not yuri, they said there's no romance.
>>123730411 Yeah, three friends who are basically sisters go on a girls day out, a guy who likes sister C plans to ask her out by giving her his lunch, and sister A talks to the disembodied spirit of her boyfriend.
>>123730341 But then Senketsu is part of her. What you don't get is that her and Senketsu were supposed to be separated, that doesn't affect her bond with Mako at all, it's not Mako fault that she can't be "wear" like Senketsu, either way Ryuko has a bond as strong with her.
>>123730415 Thats because they won't directly say anything because it might hurt sales. Its easier just to say "nooo that's totally not it, they're just fucking as friends", and let the fans pretend its what they want.
>>123730588 The sister C rejects him because she never showed any interest in him through the whole show and then at the end of the day returns to their home alone with sister A to do alive things like the alive girlfriends they are.
>>123730961 The difference is that you see their bond as "friendship", but it was clearly romantic, Senketsu can be part of the same entity as Ryuko, but Ryuko needs a bond with someone that isn't part of her too, and that bond is Mako
>>123731083 Ryuko has made many bonds with people who aren't Senketsu, that's why she didn't kill herself in 24 like she was going to. But there's nothing to indicate any of those bonds are romantic, and there's everything to indicate none of those bonds are as strong as Senketsu's.
>>123731223 Mako was always included when Ryuko talked about having a bond in some way, she always included Senketsu too, but Mako not being part of her is the key. You can't have a romantic bond with a part of yourself. Ryuko never showed interest in anyone else, she left clear that her bond with Mako was stronger than the normal friendship she had with all the other people, by mentioning her separately, she even used that bond to win against Ragyo.
>>123731200 Why would I go to those cancerous places when this topic is for discuss it here, right now? Don't want to discuss? Go to other thread.
>>123731200 >The difference is you are making asspull logical hoop jumps to justify you yuri wank. You realize you're doing the same, right? You're making all kinds of rationalizations to dismiss evidence, when the most obvious answer is that Trigger intended people to ship Ryuuko with Mako just like Senketsu and even Satsuki. They aren't stupid and they didn't do it by accident.
>>123731550 >You can't have a romantic bond with a part of yourself.
Why not? He's a part of her but he's also a completely seperate person, they go the full spectrum of two people in one body, not just literally but figuratively as well. And Ryuko thinks of him as his own person, and it's ultimately her choice.
And bonds are the name of the game all of Ryuko's bonds went into her to make Kisaragi. Not just her friendship with Mako, but her sistership with Satsuki gave her a reason to come back even after apparently losing her strongest bond of all. But of course the final episode is about how she didn't actually lose that bond, it's still stronger than ever.
>>123731802 Mako is goofy and slapsticky, that's her whole character, she will act serious because that would be out of character for her, so you have to take the way she acts as her character because there's absolutely nothing else coming from her. Her goofy and slapstick moments at the end always seriously solved the situation, so everything she does is what she truly meants, no matter how ridiculous it looks, that's her.
>>123731905 >everything she does is what she truly meants
Actually false, everything she says is a pun it's not not necessarily what she truly means she's literally telling jokes. Sometimes the heroes extrapolate something useful out of it and sometimes she tells something like it is but it's not ironclad by any stretch of the word.
>>123732166 Either way that's her character, and you can't negate her just because you find it funny, that she wants to confess with puns? Leave her, that's her, that's something to expect from Mako because she's Mako, you know she truly wanted to do that specially if she remains in-character.
>>123732166 Eactly. More people need to understand that Mako's entire scenes are actual puns, they're not random or serious in any way. The words she's saying sound similiar to the things she's transforming to. If you see her being a duck shitting eggs in episode three, she just said a word similiar to it in Japanese.
>>123733156 Yes, it was face value, there's a reason Ryuko is wearing a boy's uniform, she didn't meant the date as a the type of date that a girl goes with a girl, but the type of date a girl goes with a boy.
Her Ideal male "cool boy" dating partner would be someone "like" Ryuuko, and only Ryuuko is currently fitting the bill. She is projecting her ideals onto Ryuuko, seeing as no other man/person was showing much interest in her with the same level of "cool".
So until the right guy comes along, Mako will latch onto her "cool friend" as an emotional support.
>>123733313 The puns and jokes are the way she talks, but she had no reason to use the visual representation of a boy and a girl if she meant a girl and a girl.
>>123733385 Ryuuko already came for her, there's no other person she showed interest at all in the whole show, and no reason for her to dump her for someone else, she's not just a "friend", what do you think her motivation for specifically choosing her (and no one else that was there) to go on a date before the final battle was?
>>123733550 I also don't think it would have felt in character if she didn't meant a romantic date.
>>123733594 Ryuko used the date as her motivation to win, it was a completely selfish action from Mako and Mako only, she didn't meant it from all her friends, it was her portrayal of her own feelings to Ryuko.
>>123733771 You're over blowing it, Ryuko wanted to go home and have a normal life after Ragyo was beaten, she wanted to move on from all this. She wanted to have normal fun with Mako, but also with Satsuki and most of all with Senketsu.
You're just cherry picking scenes and twisting them for your own benefit without actually understanding a damn thing about any of these characters that aren't even that complicated.
>>123733816 Because that's what the show portrayed clearly? I don't like that people invent explanations and their own views to something that should be take as face value from the show, the show doesn't need interpretation, even after it ended people in twitter was congratulating Ryumako to win, because people on twitter has the simplest minds that don't interpret things, because this simple show don't need interpretations, you just need to take it as face value, don't make it complicated, the show said they're lesbos, so they just are, don't invent your own logic to it.
>>123733949 The show didn't say they're lesbos, and it said a lot of things in the final episodes, the least of which was that hallelujah. It's not a complicated show, but you're just focusing on one fraction and ignoring the rest.
>>123733937 You're the one trying to say Mako didn't loved her trying to twist every scene about it, instead of taking them from what they are, the date was only the final scene about this, not the only one, you know?
>>123733949 >Because that's what the show portrayed clearly?
Only if you take things totally literal like a honest to real life person with Medically prescribed Autism, and lack the basic thought process for abstract thinking and understanding ideas from other cultures (in that case, why are you even watching Japanese Cartoons?)
>I don't like that people invent explanations and their own views to something that should be take as face value from the show,
This is exactly what "you" are doing, not us. We want to know "why"? Why is them being lesbians in your mind so important? Are you a lesbian, anon? Did a Mako cosplayer leave you for a Gamagoori cosplayer, because they needed the hot dick you couldn't provide?
>>123734054 Because the rest wasn't about romantic relationships, the moment Mako choose to confess her feelings was that moment, so it makes sense I would focus in that moment, right? This discussion is not about everything the show said, just what the show said that's relevant to this topic, and only that scene is relevant to this
>>123734062 I'm not saying she didn't love her, I'm saying that her love may or may not be platonic (the large half-american gentleman certainly thought was), but the response to it was strictly platonic from a girl who loved a lot of people and the most of which was not her, it was her t-shirt. And the final scene of the girls date wasn't about Mako in any way.
>>123734144 What's the need to abstract think or understand something from a different culture? Girls hanging out with girls happens in all cultures and Mako left clear she just didn't mean hanging out like that, not like the Japanese and western girls do, but more like a romantic date way, because she choose that representation and that word.
>>123734245 Don't mix Ryuuko discussions with Mako discussions. Ryuuko was always portrayed having a both with both, meanwhile Mako only with Ryuuko, there's no way Mako has just a platonic love for the person she insisted so much to get closer.
>>123734270 You don't need to interpret it, you just need to take exactly what it said and showed.
