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?


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 »

Quite nice
6 November 2013 | by stevecofSee all my reviews

If you happen to like anime like Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagan or FLCL, this looks like another show for you. Quick pacing, weird(and nice) shonen parody humor and everything seems to be way over the top. Five episodes in, I am already enjoying the story, although you can clearly tell that the focus is not there.

The main selling point of this show is mostly it's animation, which, as usual with TV shows it gets a bit worse after the first episode. But it still very solid. You will find yourself pausing many times just to see clearly a chaotic shot up close. All in all, i recommend Kill La Kill, especially for fans of quick paced, weird anime like the ones i mentioned before.
