Director Hiroyuki Imaishi (of Gurren Lagann and Panty and Stocking fame) had teased at a new anime project earlier this year. Little-to-nothing was known about what the project might entail at the time, aside from the fact that it would be created at Imaishi’s Studio Trigger.
More details have finally been released via the June issue of Newtype magazine in Japan. The project is a TV series called Kill la Kill, and is the story of a rivalry between two schoolgirls. When Satsuki Kiryuuin transfers to a new school, her plans of taking the campus by force aren’t met well by her rival Ryuuko Matoi. It seems that the plot will focus heavily on battle elements and the tension between these two characters.
The team for Kill la Kill is made up of many other names familiar to the anime series Gurren Lagann and Studio Gainax. Other than Imaishi, Sushio is the new series’ character designer, and Kazuki Nakashima is on as a supervisor and script writer.
There’s no official website for the series yet, but the domain name kill-la-kill.jp has already been registered by Aniplex.
