Why Do PPL Call Kill La Kill "Kafkaesque"?
Recently Completed A Rewatch Of "Kill La Kill", Which Is Endlessly Entertaining, Full Of Dezakian, Pointy Aestheticism.
Ryuko Matoi Is Particularly Likable For She Is Noble & Kind-Hearted. The Never Un-Ryuko Quarrels Of High-School Life R Vibrantly Portrayed.
Ragyou, And Her Daughters, Are True Lesbos Warriors, Valiant -- They Are Such, And KLK Is Feminist, As The Girlies Unhesitantly Celebrate Their Autonomy To Test The Dialectic Between Them And Mundane Men.
However, Something That Imaishi Fans Frequently Mention When Discussing This TV-Show Is How It Is 'Kafkaesque', Which Proves Their Lack Of Understandment Of The Boundaries Between Thematic Nd Narrative Content. F Kafka's Metamorphosis Utilizes Its Narrative 2 Reach Existentialistic Topics, While In Killl La Kill The Shape-Shifting, Possessive Force [Most Prominent Around The Conclusion Of The First Half Of The Show] Has No True Repercussions On The Tone Of The Anime, That Follows The Same Themes Throughout Its Entirety {The Power Of Fashion and Revenge, Mainly}.
Meaning, The Alleged Kafkaisms Are Just A Superficial Common Ground.

>I didn't even watch Arc-V because the MC looked like such a fucking faggot that i felt in the first episode they'd show him fucking another dude or something, and because of the title
I mean come on "Arc-V" at least be a little more creative like the last 4. Another thing the edgy character designs don't do it for me they just look like emo idiotic losers.
>DSoD was a literal remake of Pyramid of Light with the added bonus of destroying the open ending of the original manga / anime and inserting more retarded shit that opened a gazillion tons of more questions that will never be addressed again... say what you want about Bohman but he was a million times better than that faggot Malik cosplayer Diva (at least Anzu's redesign was hot)

86 Eighty-Six Volume 10
LN volume 10 released in English. It's a collection of short stories about Shin growing up in the 86th sector

Quick summary:
Chapter 1: Former captain Alice gives shota Shin the scarf he wears for the series
Chapter 2: Former captain Isuka gives Shin the gun he uses to put people out of their misery
Chapter 3: Shin meets Fido
Chapter 4: Former captain Nunat gives Shin the Baleygr call sign, which we can infer is why the Legion calls him that. Shin rejects that call sign and goes with "Undertaker" instead, starts grabbing pieces of everyone's Juggernauts.
Chapter 5: Backstory talking about internment camps and other things, more death and suffering. This is the first time we see Shin as the full package, closer to as we know him now. He has the scarf, the gun, the dog, and the callsign.
Chapter 6: Shin and reverend backstory, we get some Shourei "incident" mentioning and some more Alice backstory.
Chapter 7: Spearhead squadron early days, Lena name drop, and other shenanigans.
Chapter 8: The anime original content that was featured in episodes 11-13 is here, Raiden's chuuni moment is mentioned, bath scene, and the Legion in the zoo.
Chapter 9: Fido backstory, early Shin family as well. Shin's father is working on stuff, and pre-mindbroken shota Shin makes an appearance.
Chapter 10: What-if world where Fidos are used to fight the Legion, 86ers never die, a happier world. A bunch of dead characters aren't mentioned by name, but are described here.
