Well, that’s one way to hold an election. I guess. And an excellent translation of the election’s name. Naturals election. Oh man.
This episode mostly focused on Ryuuko’s past and on Gamagoori (the big guy). The elite four is a rather diverse bunch. Gamagoori actually seems like a pretty nice guy. Although he is apparently a big masochist. That’s probably perfect though, since I have been shipping him with Mako for a while now. Mako seems to have a bit of a sadistic streak.
For the most part, Kill la Kill seems to have dispatched with the small fry for now. The Elite Four and Ryuuko win the election handily without any substantial opposition. Next it appears that she’ll fight all of the Elite Four in a row. Seems just a bit unfair. I suspect that after that, it will turn out that Satsuki was not the one who killed Ryuuko’s parents and they will have some sort of reconciliation.
In this episode, Satsuki claims that her power is different from those of the others who use their parents’ powers because of her dedication. They borrow their parents’ power, she exploits everyone’s power and turns it to her own ends. Personally though, I think it’s the power itself which is exploiting Satsuki.
