[[folder:Some Anvils Need to be Dropped]]

*Regarding the "Some Anvils Need to be Dropped" section on the YMMV page, can someone please simplify the explanation and use modern-day examples if possible? It honestly sounds a little over-complicated and I'm having a hard time understanding it.

** The whole "testing you to see if you were powerful enough to fight Ragyo" is really only half of the coin. Remember that Satsuki is under the command of REVOCS. She needs their resources, information and complete trust if she is going to fight them. If she allows the Nudist Beach Resistance to survive then Ragyo and Nui are going to see her as either A) incompetent or B) a traitor. In her mind, allying with Nudist Beach simply isn't worth the risk, considering it could cause the whole plan to fall apart.

[[folder:Satsuki's plans]]
* When Satsuki reveals Ragyo as the true enemy of her and Nudist Beach alike, the latter is understandably puzzled. They ask Satsuki why she didn't just tell them right off the bat that this was the case, instead of spending so much time fighting each other. Satsuki's explanation is simply "If you can't compete with us, you won't stand a chance against Ragyo." I'm sorry, but how does that make ''any'' sense? Even if NB turned out to be useless for Satsuki, why waste all the time and resources fighting them that could be better spent fighting Ragyo? There's nothing to be gained from it, and it's not like having those extra numbers on your side could possibly hurt. There ''is'' the vague possibility that Ragyo could possess their minds and result in more enemies to fight, but simply ''explaining'' that danger would, again, be far more efficient. Honestly, to me, this explanation felt like the desperate scrambling of someone who'd written themselves into a corner.

** It's a mistake on Trigger's part. While the broadcast version stated five years, the corrected home video version fixed it, changing the symbol for number of years to three instead of five. As such, the broadcast version released on Crunchyroll says "Five Years Ago" while official American home video release has the corrected version, as seen [[http://i.imgur.com/YB6aKyn.png here.]]

** The [=OVA=] mentions that Aikuro designed them that way because he thought [[RuleOfCool it was cool]]. Everyone else seems to disagree with him, though. The Elite Four had custom ones made while they were working for Nudist Beach, but they never got used because the Elite Four thought they were ridiculous, and Tsumugu got mad at Aikuro when he discovered the truth.

[[folder:Satsuki knowing Mako's name]]

* In episode 12, Mako expresses surprise that Satsuki knew her name. However, in episode 7, Satsuki had addressed Mako by name several times during her tenure as Fight Club President and fight with Ryuko, and it's also not unreasonable to assume that Satsuki would be spying on Ryuko's life outside of school. (It may have been intended more as an example of being surprised that Satsuki was acknowledging her existence after she fell back to No-Star Rank, however.)
** Mako is not the most attentive person in the world, and her mind was elsewhere at the moment, as well.

[[folder:Mind Stitching the Elite Four]]

* Why doesn't Ragyo ever try to brainwash the Elite Four with her Life Fiber strands? They're powerful, but still normal humans.
** Who knows? Maybe she didn't think of it, or they weren't close enough, or it didn't work because they were using their transformed uniforms at the time. Any one of those is possible.
** The Elite Four have the most life fiber tolerance, second only to Kamui users. Most probably, it would take quite a lot of effort to ensnare them, especially since they are a lot less volatile and collected than Ryuko.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Shingantsu and Tengantsu]]

* According to Satsuki, the Shingantsu completely outclasses the Tengantsu. This should make the latter irrelevant. So why does [[spoiler: Sanageyama unsealing his eyes]] count as a power-up?
** Because now he has both at the same time. He has the enhanced hearing/smell/touch/taste from his training, along with his vision.
