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 has already been registered by Aniplex.

    hopefully it won’t be as boring as Gurren Lagann was

    this sounds pretty cool! loved gurren lagan. that and redline are pretty good. but anime as a whole just isn’t what it used to be.

  • I’ve heard several complaints against Gurren Lagann, but boring was never one of them. Almost every episode was pretty much daring the audience to say “You can’t possibly make a bigger fight than this” and then they did.

    Gurren Lagann boring. Either this person never finished the show, only based the comment on those who disliked the show or simply disliked the series because it had too many character development moments…or something.

    I dunno. Whatever the reason, I also disagree with GR being boring.

    Anyway, Kill La Kill looks to be something I would enjoy for both entertainment and personal reasons.
