Ryuko Matoi is a vagrant school girl traveling from place to place searching for clues to the truth behind her father's death—the "woman with the scissor blade." The journey has led Ryuko to Honnouji Academy.

Honnouji Academy—where an elite group of students is granted superhuman power by their special uniforms called the "Goku uniform." With the power of the uniform, the student body president, Satsuki Kiryuin rules the students with unquestioned power and fear.

Satsuki holds the secret to the "scissor blade" and Ryuko confronts Satsuki to gain information but... Was their encounter a mere coincidence or fate? The clash between the two will soon consume the whole academy!

It's been said by many veteran anime watchers that anime is dying. In the old days we had our Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, Wolf's Rain, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Akira, FLCL, Berserk, Fist of the North Star, and Miyazaki; we had Space Captain Harlock, Lupin the Third, Yu Yu Hakusho, and Ghost in the Shell. Even if you haven't seen these, you've likely at least heard of them and the impact that they've had on anime as a whole. Anime was an intellectual, creative medium that reflected flair and pizazz. It wasn't just silly entertainment for kids, like many Western cartoons, and people of all ages could read more

Quit honestly, I really don't know where to start. I watched this show hoping to get my quick fix for a good action show and what I got was complete satisfaction and then even more than I could chew right afterwards. I honestly could just be overselling this a bit but this anime truly was something to behold and is truly what all anime should be like.

It was not only the action that stole my heart, it mostly all of the characters and their personalities and skills. I was truly blown away by how fantastic all of the characters in this show truly were. read more

This serious is full of ridiculousness and crazy fight scenes. It's by the director of Gurren Lagann and it truly shows. We get crazy outfits, villains and fight scenes that just make us think of fire through the flames!
These shows are very similar in their over the top nature. Kill la Kill is very high energy and constant action, whereas FLCL has it's moments of peace. Both these shows are very interesting and fun to watch.
