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

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 »

Really stupid and really good
31 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

This is that sort of anime that can be serious at times but shouldn't be taken seriously by the audience. Right from the first episode the show loads you with expedition and gets right into the action.

The animations is somewhat rough but impressive although some 3D models of backgrounds look bland but it shouldn't put off the viewer considering that fact that its not the reason they are watching this. The action sequences are the highlights though, they are super stylized and insane to watch.

Considering I only checked this anime out because its made by the same guys who made gurren lagann, i had really high hopes for it. But the thing is that this is not gurren lagann. its different. It doesn't take itself seriously and its more of a parody of every single anime in existence however it still manages to maintain an original story.

All in all, this type of anime is rare. Its silly and surprisingly good. Not to mention the generous amounts of fan service that the creators crammed into every scene.

Also the main character, Ryuko is totally bad ass although really cliché. But for an anime thats full of (good) clichés, its fun to watch.
