5. Best Fight Scene(s) - Maeda vs. Gekikara; Salt vs Sakura
Maeda (and Friends) vs. Gekikara - This fight turned out to be exactly how Gekikara was: frantic, brutal, and bloody. She bit ears, smashed heads, stabbed people… and did it so with such a creepy laugh and a maniacal look on her face. The initial flash of terror on Maeda’s face says it all. Gekikara was beaten up, but not defeated. She ended up walking away out of boredom.
Salt vs. Sakura - Sleek and stylish, but more than that, never have I seen a lead character dealt with such complete and utter defeat. Every kick was deflected, every punch was countered and returned three-fold.
Sakura was simply outclassed by the Rappapa leader, never landing anything other than that one hit. And for which Salt made sure Sakura got well-acquainted with the floor. Over and over again.
I just came home from a party, I was talking to my friend about Majisuka Gakuen and the 48 groups, then another friend comes over and asks what we were talking about, in which my first friend answers with, “a Jpop group with a show about gangsters and a detective, also they’re somewhat lesbians.” With this said, my second friend’s eyes turn all serious and looks at me, then she smiles, asking, “are you talking about AKB48?”
This was the best conversation ever.
