Synopsis

Ryuuko 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 Ryuuko 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 Ryuuko 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!

Satire
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

From the moment I saw its original promotional art and took a gander at its original series blurb, Kill la Kill had my utmost attention. Set in Honnouji Academy, main character Ryuko Matoi stumbles upon the giant city/prison-like school, looking for information that will lead her to the killer. The only clue? The other half of her own Scissor-Blade, which worked to do the dirty deed. As she battles the forces of Honnouji's ruler, Satsuki Kiryuin, Ryuko will develop bonds, read more

Recommendations

Both are outrageous series, with an over-the-top animation style and some ludicrous character designs. If you like one of them, you'd most likely enjoy the other.
The anime have very similar fast paced zaney action and over the top comedy. The art style and use of colours can also be thought to be similar. Definitely both are worth a watch.
