All You Need Is Kill[a] is a Japanese science fiction light novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka with illustrations by Yoshitoshi Abe. The book was published in Japanese by Shueisha under their Super Dash Bunko imprint in December 2004, and was later released in English by Viz Media under their Haikasoru imprint. All You Need Is Kill follows a soldier named Keiji Kiriya, who, after dying in a battle with extraterrestrials, is caught in a time loop that makes him live the same day repeatedly, allowing Kiriya to improve his fighting skills.
The story is told from the perspective of Keiji Kiriya, a new recruit in the United Defense Force. Despite equipping its soldiers with powered exoskeletons, the UDF is losing its fight against the mysterious "Mimics" (ギタイ, gitai), extraterrestrials which have laid siege to Earth. Keiji is seemingly killed on his first sortie after killing an unusual-looking Mimic but, through some inexplicable phenomenon, he wakes and finds that he has returned to the day before the battle. As this process continues, he finds himself caught in a time loop as his death and resurrection repeat time and time again. Keiji's skill as a soldier grows as he passes through each time loop in a desperate attempt to change his fate. After several dozen loops, he realizes his fate is similar to that of Rita Vrataski, a prominent ace who preferred to use a battle axe rather than a firearm. He uses his knowledge of the day to get close to her and her mechanic, from whom he gets a copy of her massive axe. He learns to use the weapon well; the boltgun that most troops are issued quickly runs out of ammo and jams easily.
Realizing that he is a fellow looper, Rita confides in Keiji, telling him of the system the Mimics use: on death, they have the ability to send a signal into the past, allowing them to see the future and change their behaviour to avoid that fate. In each group of Mimics, there is one that acts as a central nexus that can cause the day to loop, as well as several antenna Mimics, all of which signal the loop to reset; Keiji became trapped in the loop as a result of contact with one such antenna. To escape as Rita once did, Keiji must first kill all the antennae and then the nexus. The Mimics constantly adapt to Keiji's attacks. He and Rita manage to eliminate the nexus, only to have the loop reset with Rita forgetting what has transpired. After telling Rita this, she acknowledges that they missed one antenna. On the 160th loop, they proceed to eliminate the antennae again. Rita then attacks Keiji once they are out of sight of allied forces, explaining her hypothesis that being trapped in the loop has modified their brains. In essence, both of them are similar to the antenna Mimics, meaning one of them has to die before killing the nexus; otherwise, the loop will continue indefinitely. Reluctantly, the two battle. Keiji mortally wounds Rita and stays by her side as she dies. Before Rita dies, Keiji confesses his developing feelings for her before she tells him to win the war quickly and prevent anyone else from suffering their fate. He slaughters the remaining Mimics and destroys the nexus. Weeks later, he is hailed as a new hero of the United Defense Forces while he silently reflects on what transpired and the sacrifice needed for them to win the battle. He paints his exoskeleton blue in honor of her memory.
Hey, they only said that the Omega resets time after the Alpha is killed, but they did not say the Omega can reset time on its own, it is not evolved to do so (thus the Alpha is still alive when Cage drops the bomb).
rita has 150 or so loops before here co dies when she breaks free, Keiji over 200 hundred where he gets his hands an a giant ax to save ammo from ritas mechanic, he talks to her on his last to loops, they drink real coffee bang, early morning raid happens on the second of the 2, he had fought beside her for over 150 loops gains more and more experience rita attacks him after they take care of the mimics back up loop system, with intent to kill so keiji fights back fierce fight both get non clean hits until keiji lands a decisive blow holding her while she dies he tells her he loves her, rita had red armor and was FM Bitch, while grieving keiji goes on a rampage, picks up the nickname Killer cage dawns blue armor, and becomes the hero in place of Rita the war needs to win,( book in Japan, rita is a antenna only one could live and she wanted to pass on the torch)
The difference is, Rita learned how to kill mimics by killing mimics, she perfected the art of killing mimics. Keiji on the other hand, learn how to kill mimics by mimicking Rita, He saw her fight countless of times in the 160 iterations of his loops and fried her fighting style into his brain. Thus why, he is not only an expert on how mimics fight, but also on how Rita fights. This is how he bested Rita.
The first film focused mainly on the secret society in New York City, but Stahelski expertly expanded upon the reach of the assassination guild, showing just how far this organization spreads. For example, the Continental Hotel served as a safe haven for all assassins to seek refuge; no violence could be committed inside the hotel, with the consequence being excommunication. The role of the Continental is expanded upon in the sequel; in addition to being a safe haven, the hotel also serves as a place where assassins can pick up weapons and gear before committing their killings. Additionally, the film makes excellent use of its scenic locations. Rome is used particularly well. The bustling nightlife of the city, dizzying and delirious, is contrasted with the darker and damp corridors of the Catacombs, where John uses a variety of guns to defend himself against hordes of henchmen.
Combat Jackets are highly advanced exoskeleton suits that enhance soldiers abilities in the battlefield. When wearing the suit, soldier can run faster, jump to extremely high heights, lift and push heavy objects. The suit also lets soldier to avoid damage when falling from great heights. The suits visor can show upcoming threats even in smoke.The Jacket is powered by a sole unspecified battery that needs to be periodically replaced after the last one runs out of power. Without the battery the Jacket can't function and soldier inside of it becomes immobilized.
Combat Jacket requires extensive training before operating in battle, because as shown when Cage first uses the suit, inexperienced soldier using Jacket becomes extremely clumsy and slow. While the suits enhances user capabilities it doesn't fully protect the wearier from all forms of damage. Grunt and Dog variants of the suit are especially vulnerable to damage. Cage was shown have broken back after being thrown into a wall while wearing the Jacket and numerous soldiers wearing Tank variants were immediately killed by a direct hit from a Mimic javelin. Because of the heavy weight, soldiers can easily drown in deep pools of water while wearing it (this nearly happens to Cage in one instance). The Jackets damaged electrical circuits can also shock the wearier to death (as seen by Cage on the beach). They can also get set on fire, causing the soldier inside to slowly burn to death.
But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.
Film is set in the near future when an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world. Cruise plays an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, he finds himself thrown into a time loop where fights and dies in the same battle, but with each occurance, becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill.
But what does winning the battle matter if they just keep looping back to the beginning? The two will have to figure out how to stop the loop, a process that involves killing the aliens that may have inadvertently given them the power to loop in the first place.

But he is reborn each day to suffer the same fate. Eventually, he notices that he is becoming a better warrior and that other circumstances are changing, which might be the key to altering the outcome.
There's one thing worse than dying; it's coming back to do it again and again. When the alien Mimics invade, Keiji Kiriya is just one of many raw recruits shoved into a suit of battle armor and sent out to kill. Keiji dies on the battlefield, only to find himself reborn each morning to fight and die again and again. Just before his first death though, he gets to meet with a legendary soldier: Rita Vrataski, the "Full Metal Bitch", whom he will try to imitate and learn from in every iteration. Is the Bitch the key to Keiji's escape, or to his final death?
