Storyline

Honnouji Academy is forcefully ruled by the iron-fisted control of its student council and its president, Satsuki Kiryuuin. Transfer student, Ryuuko Matoi, arrives on campus carrying a giant sword, that is actually half of a scissor. She is looking for the woman who holds the other half of her sword who killed her father. It is said that Satsuki Kiryuuin knows the identity of the killer but when Ryuuko confronts her she is beaten by the student council and their powerful "goku uniforms" whom she cannot match in strength. However, once Ryuuko receives her own "Kamui" by the name of Senketsu , the odds are lifted in her favor. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?

Trivia

Hiroyuki Imaishi came up with the concept after observing the similarity between the Japanese terms "fassho" and "fasshon" ("fascism" and "fashion"), and the dual meaning of the terms "seifuku" (it means both "conquest" and "uniform") and "kiru" (it means both "to kill" and "to wear"). See more »

A visual extravaganza
8 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

This show is not for the uninitiated. It is a show for people well versed in anime as a lot of the fun lies in understanding the moments of parody. The whole parodies conventions of anime especially fan service. The show only tries to do one thing and that is to create one epic fight scene after another and in this regard it is unmatched in any anime since maybe Dragonball Z only unlike DBZ the fight scenes take 10 minutes not 10 episodes to end. In spite of being a pretty light hearted show it manages to create some really well rounded characters with understandable motivations and an underlying symbolism related to female sexuality but none of that should distract you from the absolute joyride of an anime
