Fear Is Freedom! Subjugation Is Liberation! Contradiction Is Truth! These Are The Truths Of This World!
Sexy girls wearing skimpy clothing while fighting each other to the death, what more can you ask? Kill La Kill has one of the most original plot, characters and animation that I’ve ever seen during my 20 years of watching anime. This anime clearly deserves more credit and recognition which is exactly what I’m going to give it!
We’ll start off with our main girl Ryuko Matoi. She is a transfer student who has recently return to her home town. Upon her arrival, she finds her dad getting stabby stabby in the living room. In shock and desperation, she pursues the murderer. The plot pretty much revolves around the mystery of a high school girl on her quest for vengeance. But of course, that would be wayyyyy too boring without any fan service lol.
This anime introduced the concept of Life Fibres, essentially fabric with power boosting capabilities. When woven into normal clothes, they give insane power ups, and transformation capabilities. Henshin!!! And the transformations are not for the feint of heart 😉 It has been scientifically proven that, the increased skin exposure helps the anime girls to reach their full potential………. no complaints here.
The popping visual give it a unique appeal towards the retro fans that are into the classics such as Cowboy Bebop and Dr.Slump. The cataclysmic scale of colour vomit seemingly integrates into the anime without any hiccups. With over the top action, drama and humour, this anime really hits a home run for the fan service loving Otakus that are searching for something entertaining to watch.
The story revolves around Ryuko trying to unlock the mystery behind her fathers death. She enrols into Honnouji Academy and fights her way towards the top. The student president council Satsuki Kiryūin. I find it interesting how Ryuko and Satsuki are half sisters? Their father was definitely a player lol. And the best girl of this whole anime would have to be Mako Mankashoku, who has the worst timing, always making the whole squad laugh. Ryuko quickly befriends Mako and lives with her. Potato croquettes are consumed on a daily basis because the mother doesn’t know how to cook anything else lol. Mako’s family consists of a hopelessly perverted dad and a little brother who tries to take advantage of any fan service like us viewers.
Let me tell you what I think about this high school. It’s nuts lol. You’ve got a bunch of weirdo’s who form the student council. We have the masochist, the computer data geek, the cocky kendo kid and the pink hair girl who is pretty cute tbh lol. Ryuko has to defeat each and every one of the student council before she can face the council president, Satsuki Kiryūin. Satsuki is by far the strongest in this high school and dominates every aspect of it. She is the daughter of the great lady Ragyō Kiryūin who is the CEO of the organisation REVOC that integrates life fibres into nearly 90% of the clothing worldwide.
The most noticeable scene was the battle royal because this event got interrupted by Nui Harime, the grand courtier, who revealed to Ryuko that she was the one would murdered her dad. SHIT HIT THE FAN PEOPLE! Ryuko transforms into this uncontrollable beast that goes on a massive rampage nearly killing everyone in sight. Good thing our best friend Mako came to the rescue with her melodramatic flashbacks that was sure to pull a few heart strings and knock a few teeth out with laughter lolololol.
And not to mention this Libertarian group called the Nudist Beach, who fights within the shadows to eradicate the existence of Life Fibres. With their leader, the perverted undercover high school teach who’s clothing always slips off at the most unconventional times, Aikuro Mitsukagi, it completes the fan-service without leaving the female audience out. Interestingly enough, Life Fibres were extraterrestrial beings that invaded earth millennia’s ago with the aim to take over earth as a food source.
The fighting gets more and more intense as Kyuko and Senketsu gains a bunch of new abilities, and one that even allows her to fly! What’s more beautiful is that she regains the lost relationship with her sister, Satsuki. Watching them fight alongside each other makes it a special bonding anime moment that is hard to find anywhere else. Plus their Kamuis didn’t cover anything and it was fantastic to watch lol.
Watch it and you won’t be disappointed. With the original story line, animation and soundtracks, this anime will definitely make it to your top 10 all time favourites. If anything else, just watch it for humour because I’m sure Mako will make you laugh up a storm lol.
