I have a klk question, and I apologize if you've answered it before, but, do you find any significance in Ryuko taking a big bite out of an unpeeled lemon in her introduction? Like, was it just meant to make her seem hard? Or like, does it have some subtext I don't understand? Is she ever seen eating lemon/drinking lemonade as a background thing? I've always wondered about this. Thanks.

I gotta be honest with you: I’m atrocious at talking about symbolism. There’s a reason that my hundreds of essays hardly ever mention it. 

So… I haven’t especially covered this before, but I can provide some Thoughts.

First and foremost, the lemon scene has been largely understood as a homage to FLCL, a coming-of-age anime worked on by Gainax—the studio that Hiroyuki Imaishi and Masahiko Otsuka left to found Studio Trigger, which is the team behind Kill la Kill

In the first episode of FLCL, Naota, the protagonist, refuses to drink the rest of the sour, “Lemon Squash” pop that his friend Mamimi didn’t finish. He claims that he “[doesn’t] like sour drinks” and proceeds to toss the can aside.

However, at the end of the episode, Mamimi offers Naota the sour pop again, and his reaction changes. While he repeats his sentiment—“I told you, I don’t like sour stuff”—Naota doesn’t toss the can aside this time, instead guzzling the drink down.

So, when Ryuko, the protagonist of Kill la Kill, begins the first episode of her show not just forcing herself to consume something sour, but does so purposefully, without flinching… there’s probably something there. Kill la Kill’s director Imaishi did work extensively on FLCL, after all.

But what exactly is meant to be conveyed in either series is entirely dependent on how the “sour” symbol is understood.

On the one hand, the “sourness” could be a symbol of “first love.” For Naota to accept the drink in FLCL would be to accept an “indirect kiss” from Mamimi, who had been drinking from the can previously. The “first love” idea seems supported in Kill la Kill, with Ryuko noting, after Mataro steals her lemon (at least in the original Japanese script), “You’re that eager to learn what first love tastes like?”

Mataro: Bitch, don’t try to be all witty! I’ve had my first kiss!

And with the idea of “first love” comes the idea of childishness. Though it may have some… Unfortunate Implications, in both FLCL and Kill la Kill, it could be said that getting into a first romantic relationship is a sign of growing up. The fact that Naota initially refuses to taste “first love” represents his initial refusal to come of age—and the fact that Mataro in Kill la Kill insists that he has had his first kiss (or “get[s] way more action than [Ryuko]!” in the dub) represents his desire to seem “grown-up” and experienced.

Ryuko’s utterly blase eating of the lemon would then also imply that she has had romantic relationship(s) in the past and is not afraid of them.

However, with all of this, the “sourness” could simply be a larger metaphor: a metaphor of adulthood, maturity, that kind of stuff. Naota deciding to take in the sourness at the end of the first opening episode signifies that his show is going to feature his coming of age—something he initially didn’t want anything to do with, but that the story is going to push him to experience regardless. Ryuko immediately biting into a lemon could then signify that she’s already come of age, but—and more likely, considering Kill la Kill’s ending—it could also signify that she’s not afraid of the hardships, challenges, and “sourness” that comes with coming of age.

In this way, I also see the “sourness” as a bit of a metaphor for moving forward rather than running away. The lemon pop in FLCL is first featured when Naota struggles to tell Mamimi that his brother is seeing someone else—a hard, difficult, “adult” situation that’s not fun and not comfortable. Naota throws the can away, perhaps representative of how he wants to run away from this problem. At the end of the episode, though, Naota has revealed the truth to Mamimi, and he then drinks the pop, signifying that there’s no more running away: he’s growing up, whether he likes it or not.

But disregarding the FLCL tribute, a character introduction that features the character biting into a raw, unpeeled lemon is powerful on its own. It tells audiences right away that this character is badass—whether her lemon-eating is because she’s not afraid of growing up or hardship or “first love” or because of any other reason, you shouldn’t mess with this chick.

HELLO POLICE I’D LIKE YOU TO ARREST THIS BOY FOR BEING A FCUKING SWEETHEART AND MELTING MY HEART THAT’S NOT ALLOWED

I don’t wanna be extra but the fact that griffin explicitly introduced lup as a trans girl, which had no impact on the plot but was just his own decision, and the fact that justin immediately jumped on board and adopted his new trans elf twin and created the ultimate crime duo, was the single greatest thing that could possibly come out of 2017

I’ve been rereading a bunch of comments on Obito-heavy chapters of reverse, and there are a couple of points that people always bring up that just…bug me. And keep in mind that while he is totally my favorite character I do not excuse anything he did, nor do I feel his actions were justified. But sometimes, the hypocrisy of the statements gets to me. Cue rant:

1) “He killed so many people! And innocents!”

Yes, absolutely. But they’re shinobi - so has everyone else. Like, Minato canonically killed over a thousand Iwa shinobi in a single day. Kakashi also has an incredibly high kill-count from taking missions. Itachi killed hundreds in one night. Assassination contracts are also a thing, and there is no way that everyone the various shinobi in the villages kill is innocent. Killing people is kind of a thing with ninjas. If you don’t like Obito because he killed your faves, that’s cool, but say that

2) “There was no reason for him to do what he did!”

Well, the overarching goal behind everything was changing the shinobi world because it’s the kind of place that makes child soldiers fight and die in wars, and changing the world is kind of a recurring theme in the series. Obito gets the “cool motive, still murder” sticker, but Naruto and Hashirama had the same goal, honestly. Even Kakashi admits that Madara and Obito have a point about things needing to change. 

3) “He should have known better!”

As a traumatized child soldier being manipulated/brainwashed by two master manipulators right after he saw his only friend killed? And with a seal on his heart to keep him from betraying them? I mean, it would have been reasonable if he had come to realize that everything he was doing was wrong, but I also tend to think it’s understandable that he didn’t. Rin was his main tie to Konoha and he’d just seen Kakashi murder her. He had no family that accepted him and a strained relationship at best with Kakashi. He grew up practically an outcast, being told he was useless and had no worth, and then Madara shows up and tells him he’s strong and capable and can save the world from itself. He didn’t look too deeply, and I can understand why. Again, ‘cool motive, still murder’, but a reasonable progression from the child we see in the beginning. 

4) “He was too easily forgiven!”

This one I’ll give you, but it was out of character for Naruto, Obito, and Rin, and just. Such sloppy writing. Especially when Naruto had previously said (to which Obito agreed) that Obito would have to face justice in the villages after the war. Naruto turning around to instantly call him the ‘coolest guy’ when he died was just ridiculous, but I feel like it’s akin to blaming Sakura for the character assassination in 699. Bad writing, inconsistent characterization. Before that, it was a lot more of a believable situation, imo. 

I know I always say my favourite character is Alix, but the truth is my actual ACTUAL SECRET FAVOURITE CHARACTER has no name, about 0.1 seconds screentime, and is probably long dead
