“Fear is freedom! Subjugation is liberation! Contradiction is truth! Those are the facts of this world! And you will all surrender to them, you pigs in human clothing!”

Honnouji Academy—where an elite group of students is granted superhuman power by their special uniforms called the “Goku uniform.” With the power of the uniform, the student body president, Satsuki Kiryuin rules the students with unquestioned power and fear.
Satsuki holds the secret to the “scissor blade” and Ryuuko confronts Satsuki to gain information but… Was their encounter a mere coincidence or fate? The clash between the two will soon consume the whole academy!
There were times when I felt the show was trying to insult my intelligence by trying to give me a “scientific” explanation for some “shi*” that randomly happened. You know like the main protagonist transforming into a rocket. The characters were all fun but they were all unreliastic, but well I do not think they were meant to be realistic any way- like the main character who hated her father but goes through all kinds of life-threatening and painful trouble to find her father’s killer.
I read somewhere on the internet that to enjoy this show you should “switch-off” your brain and it might as well be true to a certain extent. The reason being that certain aspects of this show are stupid but in the end I came to the conclusion that it was good for what it was. And it was- funny, predictable, action-packed, light-hearted and yet trying to be serious, full of fan service(which was fine by me), colourful and addictive.
If this review made you feel that this is a bad show then this review is a failure( well at least from my perspective) because I like this show and if you are searching for a show to watch, I do highly recommend this.
