The plans on Hiroyuki Imaishi’s upcoming action anime were supposed to be revealed in the June issue of NewType magazine which launches this Friday. But with the details getting leaked online, we’re getting the info earlier than expected.
The new series entitled Kill La Kill is set in an all-girls school. Imaishi reunites with Gurren Lagann’s writer Kazuki Nakashima and character designer Sushio for this Trigger production (the studio formed by the former employees of Gainax).
Kill La Kill is an action anime that follows the story of Ryuuko Matoi and Satsuki Kiryuuin. Satsuki (the one holding the sword) tries to overthrow the student council by force. However, the seemingly revenge-driven Ryuuko interferes with Satsuki’s plans. The story’s driving force will be the rivalry between the two female leads.
If you previously watched Gurren Lagann, then you’ll probably have high expectations of this upcoming school battle anime.
