The latest trailer for Studio Trigger’s action series Kill la Kill has been released with English subtitles by Aniplex of America. The trailer gives us a rundown of the series’ setting, characters, and basic premise.
Hotheaded Ryuko finds her way into a high school called Honnouji Academy. The school is more like a dictatorship than a house of learning, and the undisputed leaders are the Student Council, lead by a girl named Satsuki. Ryuko has the determination to take Satsuki and the four other student council members on, but does she have the power? Everything changes when Ryuko finds a mysterious and powerful uniform that gives her an edge — and not just figuratively either. Check out the trailer below to see for yourself.
Aniplex of America will be streaming Kill la Kill on Crunchyroll, Hulu, the Aniplex Channel, and the new anime streaming site Daisuki. Daisuki in particular will be streaming the series in several different languages (including German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese) and locations; see their announcement here to find out if the show will be available in your area.
Studio Trigger has been teasing the release of Kill la Kill for months now, and news about the show has been particularly exciting for fans of the series Gurren Lagann. Many staff members from the Gurren Lagann team are working on Kill la Kill, including its director, script writer, and character designer. Studio Trigger itself was founded many staff members that worked on Gurren Lagann, so it’s no wonder that the Kill la Kill trailer bears a strong resemblance to it stylistically.
Kill la Kill will premiere in Japan October 3rd, and the first episode will be streamed around the world later that same day.
