Kill la Kill Episode 7 “A Loser I Can’t Hate” 30 Second PV and a Warning for Cosplayers

The PV for Episode 7 is out. I want this picture of Mako as my new phone lock screen so that every time I go to watch another few hours of inane YouTube videos, I’ve just got her staring disapprovingly at how I’m wasting my time. Like the “Next Episode” preview, this face takes up 15 seconds of the PV, so I’m hoping that the episode just opens like this, and we find out that Mako just managed to scape together enough change to buy a soda from the vending machine and is just paralyzed by choice.

Besides that, we get to see her brother do her pre-speech pose, so maybe that’s a Mankanshoku signature or something. We also finally encounter the leader of one of the hot topic clubs, the Origami President, and Ryuko will also run afoul of the Baseball Club. If this series makes a Rookies reference, I will fucking lose it.

Last time I did the SQ teasers, I padded it a bit with a small KlK cosplay gallery I found, but this cosplay news isn’t quite as endearing as knowing people are willing to throw caution to the wind and install pink LEDs in their nipples. According to this thread from Singapore Hardware Zone, the Ryuko cosplayer you see towards the back had the police called on her for public indecency by another attendee [Edit: Actually, the woman in question was coming from a church service being held in the same building and not attending the convention] at this years Anime Festival Asia. Apparently, the two got into a fight over the outfit and ended up making a big scene before police were called in. [Edit 2: No arrests were made, though the Ryuko cosplayer did not take it well, as you can imagine.]

We’ve apparently stepped into a dangerous cosplay realm in certain regions. I’ve been to a convention once or twice, so I can’t see it being a problem around here, but if you do cosplay this show, please be careful. Maybe consider doing a Sanageyama if you want to stay safer, though you’ll have to sit around while everyone does this at you.

  1. Hi, just for your info: The woman who called the police was not an attendee.

    The event was at Suntec City, which has had quite a few of its shares bought by a company owned by City Harvest Church, and some of the event halls are used by said megachurch to hold services.

    This incident happened in the space outside the event hall where a lot of cosplayers had set up impromptu photography areas. (The windows you see are the glass front over the convention centre area.)

    Allegedly (this last part is hearsay, but reliable hearsay), the woman (the one with the bare arms and hand under her nose) had just come down from a church service in the upper floors and basically totally flipped out.

    The police did not arrest anyone, and the cosplayer in question is not in trouble, although she was rather traumatised.

    • I had heard that there were no arrests, just that the police had come down to deal with the situation, talked to the girl and the lady who’d called them in, and then left it at that. Since the only details I had came from that thread, and a lot of it was people mouthing off about the lady who’d called in the police, I wanted to be sparse about details on her since I couldn’t tell what was and wasn’t just bashing.

      But thanks for clarifying. I’ll adjust the text to say that she was not an attendee.

  3. hmmm, could the moving finger and thumb on the animated GIF be referring to the male’s anatomy?

    Anyway its just an outfit.
    Its just how people see it.
