Ratings & Reviews
An Awesome Series
Kill la Kill is a fantastic series overall with glorious and intense animation by Studio Trigger and music that will hype you up for what ever is coming up next. If you like absolutely ridiculous plots; story plots not fanservice plots, and intense action scenes, then this show is for you. But this series is not for everyone, if you do not like any type of fanservice at all then you may not like this show. However, coming from me who does not enjoy most of those types of series, I love this show. Kill la Kill is more than just fanservice, it is about being who are and going your own way in life. Truly, a series to be remembered.
Some of the most fun you'll ever have watching an anime.

Kill la Kill features some great art and animation courtesy of some of the talented people who brought you Gurren Lagann and Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt. The series isn't all flash, however, it features some amazingly compelling characters along with it. The rather off-the-wall plot is handled extremely well as well, turning something that could be incomprehensible into a thoroughly engaging experience.
As well, this release features a stellar dub cast that adds a ton of personality to an already personality-laden series.
All in all, I would highly recommend this series to any anime fan looking for something action-packed and original.
all about the girl
This anime is about a girl named Ryuko Matoi and her quest to find her fathers killer. She transfers into Honnouji Academy and meets the Iron clad Student council President Satsuki Kiryuin and her elite four.
From this point the battles that happen between Ryuko and the rest of the school are way out there and a lot of fun to watch. With each new battle a new student steps up to try and take down Ryuko in the name of the president.
As each eps is watched more and more strange and fun things start to appear. From the Naked Nudests to Life Fibers you are not going to want to stop watching until the very end.
Ryuko will soon come to know that she is not only going to find her fathers killer, but she will have to step up and save the world.
You won't be able to stop at just one eps.
Ten Outta Ten

Kill La Kill is another amazing anime from the team who created Gurren Lagann. It features an incredible story that is packed with action and is brought to life by its beautiful animation. The Blu-ray Disc is definitely worth it as the dvd version has a noticeably lower quality than the blu-Ray. On top of all this, Kill La Kill has an amazing dub that is just as good(if not better) than the Japanese voices. All in all, this is a high quality anime that I believe everyone should enjoy, and the blu-Ray version is definitely the way to watch it.
One of my favorite series, but an underwhelming release.

I'm gonna start this off by saying one thing: I LOVE Kill la Kill. The plot is a lot of fun, with scenes that either break or even make fun of popular anime conventions seen in recent years. Every character is distinct in both design and personality, but not one of them seems out of place. Visually, this anime is phenomenal, and the Blu-Ray is by far the best way to see it. It also sounds great too, with a great soundtrack and a very solid English voice cast.
My main issue with Kill la Kill Blu-Ray 1 is the release. For the price you pay, you only get a little four episode taste of a fantastic series that only gets better as it progresses. Being from Aniplex, the packaging is a lower quality than I'm used to, and with what you get for it, I can't say the hefty price was entirely worth it all unless you can get it on sale. While I still recommend the series, you might want to stream it over on Crunchyroll/Netflix before making your final decision to buy it.
This is one of my favorite anime!
This is one of those anime that can be viewed over and over. The Japanese language track is excellent. The music track is top notch. The English language track is ok but it would have been better if the cast would have made an effort to pronounce the Japanese nouns properly. The main character is a high school girl out for revenge. She wields a scissor blade that killed her father and she's determined to find his murderer. This all revolves around the main subject: Clothing. Clothing that's been infused with alien fibers bestowing super powers on those who wear them. Let the fun (and wackiness) begin!
Cash To Burn? Try This On For Size

Similar to Gurren Lagann, this show was ridiculously fast pace in its first three episodes making it difficult to stop watching after just one episode. Also I got the sense the over arching theme of Kill La Kill was about self confidence; this time our hero's self confidence is less about her uncertainty but rather her body image. Only by accepting her own body does she become more powerful, and I think that's a great message.
(Granted the means of accepting herself via wearing a stripperific mechanized sailor suit is a great plot device, but it's also obviously designed that way for fan service, and that might be difficult to look past for those that find 50-95% nudity distracting.)
My major criticism is economically based: The money spent on this could better be invested in a series selling 12-26 episodes for roughly the same price.
I liked what I saw, it goes by really fast, and I loved the English cast. But I can only recommend it if you've got the money to burn.
