Kill la Kill Episode 8: 50 Shades of Ira Gamagoori

Episode description (from CR) – Satsuki Kiryuin reveals her plan to rebuild Honnouji Academy’s order, a free-for-all whose survivors will be able to regain their Goku Uniforms. Despite the resulting chaos, Ryuko and Mako go for a ride, only to wind up in an unexpected situation!

In this episode Satsuki informs the school of her brilliant plan to reorganize the school. This plan involves leveling the playing field and making everybody do a king of the hill style battle to become three stars. They have seven days to prepare. This results in complete chaos as the students fight each other and attempt to steal Goku uniforms.

In the midst of all this chaos Ryuko decides it is time to visit her father’s house. Mako tags along because why not. Ryuko discovers that the house is now empty and we get this flashback of Ryuko finding her father dying. Old man Matoi (Is his name Ishun? Ishuin? I don’t know) pulls out half of a scissor blade (how did this thing come apart? Or is it wielded as two halves for some reason?) from his stomach. He then attempts to explain some shit to Ryuko but she just had to run after the assassin instead of getting good info from her dying father. Good job.

Ryuko’s scooter dies as the two are heading home and they are discovered by Ira Gamagoori. Ira Gamagoori believes that it is his duty to help students found off of campus and in need. Therefore he offers Ryuko and Mako a ride. Mako sings a delightful song about going to Hell and Gamagoori wishes she would stop.

Then some weird shit happens. Gamagoori’s car gets attacked by a club attempting to steal his Goku uniform. Gamagoori reveals his Goku uniform to be some strange bondage gear type thing. (We only get shots of this thing from the back so we don’t really see it). Gamagoori defeats the club easily and goes on with life.

7 days later we are back at school for our king of the hill fight. The Elite Four easily make it up to the top along with Ryuko. The Elite Four then ask for permission to battle Ryuko. Gamagoori is up first! We shall see how he fares next week!
