I thought episode 24's ending montage took place in honno city, but satsuki cutting her hair at the end of the ova means it couldn't have. why must they do this to me? why must they create a short-hair-related plot-hole?

are you sure about that? cuz right after the credits start rolling we see this sequence:


and then they start playing the date sequences in a much nicer looking city outside of where Honnouji Academy was.

Holy shit, I never noticed that...
I mean it was pretty clear what happened to the island at the end of the OVA but I completely overlooked this in the final episode.
Too bad they never explained the other plot holes. Senketsu backstory would've been nice but the OVA still turned out way better than I anticipated.

there's a couple things about klk's plot that kind of bug me, but not enough for it to ruin my enjoyment of the series. the biggest thing for me was how utterly useless Nudist Beach ended up being. in the first half of the series they felt like a legitimate threat and something bigger than everything else going on, but by the end they had been reduced to a literal joke. like the whole 'DTR' thing. even in the OVA they had no use for them.

You get this strong feeling that Trigger played the plot by ear. I have to wonder if the character polls didn't have something to do with how plot threads played out. Tsumugu seemed like he was going to be a big deal with his sister and all, and then that plot got sidelined and by the end of the series I - and Satsuki for that matter - couldn't even remember his name. Incidentally, he didn't even make top 10 in Newtype's character polls. Satsuki on the other hand was #1 and stole the show.

that's what you'd think when watching it, but according to the creators, the script was written before the series started. maybe they did start changing things as they went along, we'll probably never know. but i think imaishi is not the best writer, and his scripts tend to get weaker after timeskips. he's really creative but i think he needs more people around him to challenge him on his stories.

I have this gut feeling that Ryoko and Satsuki are eventually going to become allies. If I'm right ya'll owe me a pizza. If I'm wrong, I will commit sudoku.

Fuck, has it really been that long since KLK started?

It scares me how fast time flies.
