Kill la Kill

Kill la Kill (キルラキル) is an Anime/Manga which I have finished watching recently. It contains 24 episodes in the Anime which spans over 9 hours and 45 minutes.

Kill la Kill is focused on one main protagonist called Ryuko Matoi, she is a teenage girl who wishes to avenge the death of her father and figure out how/why he died. To do this she aims towards the most prestigious Academy, Honnouji Academy, for answers from whoever is in charge, which would be Satsuki Kiryuin.

Without spoiling Kill la Kill too much, there are clothes (primarily Goku Uniforms) that contain “life fibres”, later on in the Anime we find out exactly what they are, but generally they enable the wearer more power. These pieces of clothes usually have a star system, where 1 star contains 10% “life fibres”, then 3 stars (the highest stared) 30%.

These Goku Uniforms are usually indestructible, but thanks to Ryuko’s scissor sword she can cut through them. Ryuko found this scissor sword in her father’s dying body when she was returning home one day (seen in a flashback). This is not the only item of her father that she will possess though, a little later on in the Anime (not too much for spoilers) she will acquire a sailor uniform which she names Senketsu. This is a Godrobe (神衣 = Kamui = Godrobe) which contains 100% life fibre, she will use this on her quest to avenge her father and battle anyone who gets in her way.

After watching Kill la Kill, I would rate it 8/10, the graphics are good for an Anime, which contained many fight scenes. The story was quite interesting also containing unexpected and interesting plot twists, which lead the ending to piece very nicely together with a pleasing end. This being unlike Tokyo Ghoul, which a rather disappointing ending, although it is still to have a third season (Tokyo Ghoul) unlike Kill la Kill which ended in 2014.

If you would like to watch Kill la Kill you can do on Netflix for free with their 30 day trial.
