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.

They kinda have the same feel. The sequences are really fast. Both deal with "wrong" topics (such as dictatorship, death, fighting), but in a funny and careless way. The animation is great and singular. Both have a very particular, colourful, and enjoyable art. Lots of gags during each scene. Both have fanservice and sexy gags. Both are quite messed up, though Kill La Kill seems to have a plot to begin with. Overall strange but somewhat epic. If you enjoyed P&S, you'll love Kill La Kill.

The series that Kill la Kill truly reminded me of on the most consistent basis was definitely Utena. I saw so many elements of the first season of Utena in this series that it became a bit ridiculous - RIDICULOUSLY AWESOME that is! If you like the fighting aspect of Kill la Kill, than you are certain to enjoy Utena's duels. BONUS for you Touga fans - there is definitely a boy for you in this fantasy! ^_^

Kill la Kill and Space Patrol Luluco are very high action and animated by studio Trigger. A main character of Kill La Kill (Mako) is high energy, carefree, and simple and the main character in Space Patrol Luluco is also carefree and strives to be as simple as possible. Each story takes place in a sci-fi school setting and pulls the viewer in with it's unique art-style and diverse setting. If you enjoyed the high energy, simple comedy, and sci-fi twist in either show I'd recommend trying the other.

Both shows are filled with relentless action and a lot of comedy moments. The fights are over the top and flashy as possible. Also fights defies any logic or physics laws. The common part of both show is a cast of colorful and meaningful characters. The biggest difference, however, is the amount of fanservice. KLK is full of it, while OPM has it really low.

Kill La Kill is overwhelmingly close to Project A-Ko, both acting as parodies of 80's anime and culture. With similar tone and characters, there is no doubt one influenced the other. The plot is often random and/or ridiculous, with no structure and constant action. There is plenty of fanservice and cheesy references.

Having the much alike backdrop of a divided Japan with different factions vying for more territory, it's quite easy to compare "Kill la Kill" to "Rolling☆Girls". To expand more on the setting, within both of their hierarchal societies, there exists leading combatants who don on costumes as well as standard uniforms for their subordinates. Additionally, the over-the-top nature in the action scenes of these two shows make them stand out from many other series. The lively colour palettes of both these shows also add to their seemingly randomness. "Rolling☆Girls", though produced by Studio Wit, is very reminiscent of a Studio Trigger production, as its  read more

Both by TRIGGER, storyboarded by Hiroyuki Imaishi and animated by You Yamashiro. Has striking similarities in animation, editing, as well as general art direction and both shares TRIGGER's wit, quick cuts, and clever humor. Both involves an underdog story with a female lead centered in an academy specialized in the peculiar (school uniform ability enforcement and witchcraft/wizardry) in which the main villain/conflict becomes apparent starting the latter half of the season.

among some anime which popped out in my mind when i started watching symphogear is kill la kill. which unfortunately when I checked the recommended title part of symphogear, didn't find any. in general, both anime tells a story of a girl protagonist having to fight. what makes kill la kill and symphogear different from other anime (and what makes them similar) is of course, their art style and animation which doesn't use CGI. they also chose somewhat weird costume for their protagonists. secondly, both anime includes weird ironical comedy in their character and story.

So, there's this large-chested girl whose father got mysteriously killed by some mysterious people, which sets her off on a roaring rampage of revenge. Cleavage and retro, seizurey fight scenes ensue. If you like ridiculous, over-the-top, fanservicey (and fandisservicey) shenanigans, then this is what you've been waiting for your whole life.

Great shows chocked full of in-your-face sexual euphemisms and great action sequences. Both deal with self-expression and the desire to break free of societal bonds regarding sexuality. For your high-octane action needs, you have Kill La Kill. For a more somber, bittersweet series you have Darling in the FranXX.

The most obvious similarity comes from the fact that both shows put their own twist on the "mahou shoujo" genre. But while Madoka Magica explores this theme in a serious tone, Kill la Kill jumps around the comedy and parody territory, with some drama gems in between. Both have very unique art styles. The true main villans in both anime share a very similar goal and origin. Both have really intricate stories with lots of plot twists. The main diference is the pacing and overall atmosphere, Kill la Kill being more slap-stick comedy and ecchi, Madoka having a more well-paced story. Both were great shows to watch.

There are a few superficial similarity that can be drawn with both shows. One being that they both have a female antagonist being the top of a their respected school or academies. And also that their mothers have even more control then the daughters. In kill la kill, it could be argued that show's antithesis are fighting about clothes and fashion, while Shimoneta, they are fighting for the suppression of anything sexual or promiscuous. Also both shows are incredibly ecchi and lewd. They differ from being a fighting show and the latter strictly being a comedy.

A mixtures of calculative unique genre and plots would bring wonders to those who appreciate them which is what these series have accomplished. Some of the common similarities would be the use of blood to one's advantage, bizarre fonts in battle, and exceptional vibrant colours throughout the series. However, the most important aspect is the commendable 'idea' implemented in these series that have made them a success.

Main characters in both animes are tomboyish schoolgirls fighting with evil and injustice in schools they attend to. While their goals and motivations differ, these two characters also have in common one more thing, which is the usage of original weapons during many action scenes present in both shows (yo-yo in Sukeban Deka and clothes in Kill la Kill). In both animes the main character is a tomboyish schoolgirl fighting with evil and injustice in the school she attends to. While Saki and Ryouko

As different as they are visually and narratively, it's astonishing how many things these two series have in common. Both shows dress up a heavy story full of existential themes in extremely quirky and occasionally perverted comedy trappings, both have a penchant for rock music and flashy transformation sequences, and both are really well made and creative in general, knitting a lot of emotional ups and downs together into an impressive and convincing whole. If you love one, you're gonna love the other.

While the stories are considerably different, I believe that if you enjoyed one, you will definitely enjoy the other. Both shows are concentrated fast-paced fun with a knack for over-the-top craziness. Another common element which immediately made me think of the other anime is creatively used ecchi. The shows use eye candy in a way that is usually appealing or at least excusable even to people who usually avoid it like a plague. Lastly, there's a similarity in the setting (school) and the rough plot outline (rising through the ranks to fight the main antagonist, an arrogant young girl).

Both of these shows embody a trend prevalent (but not universal) in recent releases, highlighting a gulf between sexualisation and objectification. Despite being portrayed with sexual motifs, both female leads in these shows (Ryuuko in Kill la Kill, Kate in Sekai Seifuku) are wilful, determined characters who are never reduced to helpless plot devices. They can hold their own in a fight and are emotionally vulnerable without being subjected to typical feminine stereotypes (such as a hopeless infatuation with the male lead or an inability to cope with stressful situations). From a genre perspective, Kill la Kill is action-heavy and intense, being permeated with huge battles  read more

Aliens come to Earth to feed on humans. The main character in both series is a nobody, and slowly becomes overpowered and gains friends at their new school. There are characters who are part alien and part human. When the aliens eat humans, they are basically parasites. Humanity has not encountered these aliens for a really long time, and they have to fight them or they become their food. Both series have unique art and animation. The small group of humans who fight are a mixture of teenagers and adults. There is a fair amount of fanservice in both shows.

At first these series seem nothing alike. One's a 25 minutes per episode action show, while the other is a 3 minutes per episode high school comedy. However, I often make comparisons between these in my head because of the three things they have in common: Their over-the-top nature, their lightning quick pacing, and their low budget. These are the defining elements of Kill la Kill, but Teekyuu has them all tenfold.

Both series are action-themed but are mostly recognised for the immense amount of fanservice. We have girls transforming and battling each other, but you mostly watch this for the "plot". At least I suspect most people do. Another similairity is that in both series the protagonist is very embarressed by their transformation at the beginning, but learns to deal with it later. Between the two of them Kill la Kill stays true to the action genre and just puts the fanservice in there at the same time, while Kämpfer turns into a harem halfway through.

There was a lot of similar aspects between the movie Project A-ko and Kill La Kill already, however with A-ko's sequel there's another point to raise alike, it's that the villain in both ends up being the progenitor of the rich girl (B-ko and Satsuki), which is funny, since it's also the case that in Kill La Kill Satsuki stared as the antagonist to later join sides in order to defeat her mother.

It's clear that the pair don't take themselves too seriously with how they execute their premise. From Kill la Kill's wacky animation to "clothes do evil thing", and GP's wacky scandals that sometimes feel a bit over the top. Both anime do know a thing or two about an unbelievable atmosphere, but it is what makes it all the better to watch, considering they make no effort in shifting the tone of such. Both are good anime with great visuals to call their own, as well as having good OST accompanying what is at the end of the day, a fun story.

Despite vast differences in plot and genre, these anime feature many loveable, memorable characters, one of which is a tomboyish female protagonist. However, Haruhi is more straightforward and down-to-earth whereas Ryuko is more feisty and tough. For their respective elements, they effectively exaggerate anime tropes and stereotypes for self-aware, satirical humour. ‘Ouran Host High School Club’ makes fun of different romance and harem tropes while ‘Kill la Kill’ exaggerates equal opportunity fanservice for comedic and dramatic effects.

Enthusiasm. Kill la Kill and Assault Lily don't have a lot in common. Though their action rings some resonance with one another, mainly because of the background behind the studios who worked on this. I guess there is the presence of ridiculous weapons being used in both, relative to size and functions. Hints of girl's love too. Both are good action anime. You can tell the studios had fun animating these as well.

This may be a bit of a stretch, but ‘Tiger & Bunny’ and ‘Kill la Kill’ portray core themes surrounding cooperation through polarizing friendships (i.e. Kotetsu and Barnaby, Ryuko with Mako and Senketsu), and previous rivals becoming allies following the need to fight against a greater evil. Barnaby and Ryuko are both characters initially driven by vengeance towards the loss of their family. The exposed outfits of the female characters, like Blue Rose, Ryuko, and Satsuki, are commented on for humour while being simultaneously deconstructed when discussing ideas of fanservice, female strength, and nudity.

There are distinctively settings relating to Basquash and Kill la Kill's worlds. There's an advanced city where the rich and famous people resides in. Then, there's a town of poverty where our main characters are known to cause trouble. However, they get themselves caught into an event that changes their lives forever. Both series classifies themselves as action packed anime with a lot of intensity, integrity, and dominance. The main characters goes up against the best of the best to prove themselves worthy of their names. Various themes are explored in both series as the main characters embraces their identity.

They share a similar mood in the first episode. If you enjoy the mood with one show, you're bound to enjoy the similar mood in another. Shows with similar moods tend to contain the same content. So, if you like one show, it's bound to have like content to that of another with a similar mood. The mood is very pleasant, like something that's very over-the-top. This is my persuasive essay.

Althought Kill la Kill and Nichijou don't have anything in common in terms of the plot or genre, the fast paced and over the top humor is present in both of them. Kill la Kill focuses more on the action while Nichijou is a full-blown comedy, but if you appreciate exaggerated things for the sake of hilarity, you'll enjoy both of the series.

Amusing action with overpowered characters. High level fights with many interesting powers. The characters enhance their skills and abilities, getting ever more powered. The protagonist learns important revelations of his/her past and his/her origins.

Cutie Honey was heavily influential for Kill la Kill and are pretty similar with each other. Both focus on a female protagonist (Ryuko and Cutey Honey) that finds out that their father has been killed by a mysterious person and must find the one who is responsible for killing their father. Both uses a transformation power created by their father to fight against evil. Both titles also have a similar supporting cast and uses a help from a mysterious man with a connection to the protagonist and her father to use their powers. They also contain a lot of action, fan service and comedy. While  read more

Both titles have female leads that can become stronger by able to transform with clothes/suits. While Moldiver has less fanservice compare to Kill la Kill, both shows do have a good main female hero with action, comedy and epic fights. If you enjoyed one, you will probably enjoy the other.

Both are over-the-top school battle series with plenty of nudity and humor.

Protagonist is an angry avenger, the aim is to beat who killed the own father. The protagonist mainly uses a melee weapon against many enemies. Really epic fights, in a show where almost all are against the protagonist, who have mainly just one weak friend.

An avenger angry girl, with a sad past behind her shoulders, has to fights hard for the sake of the world. There are very strong villains, transformations, and many excellent twists, in a plot with ascending progression.

Both have a city that is ran by a highschool girl and a group dedicated to keeping the status quo of the city. Both shows have bad-ass females. Both have a blue-haired, mysterious bishounen working behind the scenes. Both series I think have top notch animation and BGM.

Main character meets a different species and they form a special bond. They have to fight together against others similar to them. The relationship between Shinichi and Migi is similar to Ryuko and Senketsu.

Dokonjo Gaeru/Gutsy Frog was already one of Imaishi's biggest influences even before this show came announced (see the art in his Abenobashi episodes); however, those influences were more visual than anything else. Kill la Kill takes the inspiration to the next level by featuring a living, talking, moving piece of clothing that uses its sleeves as limbs and can overpower its wearer.

Both deal with a protagonist with a common goal of defeating a central authority figure of evil. Both protagonists have a trait that sets them apart from the rest of the human population. KLK and ANE both take place in a school setting with a powerful authority figure acting as the puppetmaster of the school. Authority figures are also related to the Big Bad. Protagonists are defiant and stubborn, and want to make their own path and find their own way. Both also possess large amounts of power that they use to bring them closer to their goal.

Has a similar start, since we find * A transfer student that is also rebel and strong * A school which is ruled by a group of students acting as correctors (The Great 4 on kill la kill) * The whole school and specially those correctors chasing the transfer student in hope of correcting him on fights * Outstanding fights fast paced fights Sorry for the low quality comparision but its mostly the similarities i found on it and it goes on in most of the story from what i read on manga

Kill la Kill has a good amount of Saint Seiya influences that are pretty clear to those who've seen the latter. The saints in this series have three different ranks and each of them wear cloths(their armor) which gives them more power and protection. It's a very early battle shounen, coming out 3 years after Fist of the North Star and 2 years after Dragon Ball, but it's something worth checking out.

Both Kill La Kill and Arcade Gamer Fubuki focus on clothing that gives it's wearer super-human powers. Both also don't take themselves very seriously. Both shows have the main character trying to find out more about their father, and both of the main characters have a super supportive best-friend as well, which tend to come off as pretty similar characters. The major difference between the two shows is that Kill La Kill is focused on crazy physical fighting, while Arcade Gamer Fubuki is focused on crazy fighting in the form of video gaming. The latter also comes off as more generic in terms of it's presentation, while Kill  read more

Interestingly enough, the comedy/shounen flicks, Beelzebub and Kill la Kill are quite similar in setup, execution, and of course enjoyment! Some similarities they share are: School theme—if you liked the school premise, where there is a main character "challenging/getting challenged" by other groups/gangs you will enjoy both, for both use the school as a catalyst to move the plot. The school is also like a gag, which is quite silly, as they do not represent how a normal school is at all. Over-the-top—Both go to extremes for enjoyment, both showing some degrees of nudity (which I won't list here) for the humor effect, which works  read more

-Both anime are full of action, comedy, epic fights, and hilarious characters. -Both anime try to make a dramatic plot from something really absurd, and it turns out really good and interesting. -Both anime try to make parody from another anime by abusing in the use of drama into something nonsense

KLK is made by some ex-gainax guys, so the animation and concept of over the top fights with saving the world as the final objetive is the same. Two main leads which grow closer and become best friends. MC are similar in various aspects which I cannot say or it would be a spoiler. You will get the same feeling from both so if you enjoyed one you will enjoy the other.

They Might seem completely different in terms of content, but both of their settings share a similarity, they both have what they think are blessings from the gods but are really just weapons sent by aliens on earth, and they fight these weapons by using the powers given to them by these weapons

Both involve a high school setting. Both are fairly action packed. In both the student council president holds a high position of authority and influence in the lives of the students.

Over the top fights, skin tight outfits (more guys than gals this time), and a narm charm factor that is off the charts? What's not to love? Seriously though, the overall feel and tones of both these series are very similar. In the beginning of both you have a fighter looking for a person/answers to their family's woes, be it their father's murderer, or in the case of G Gundam a brother who has become an enemy of the state. The protagonists of both series however come to find out that all is not as it seems and there are bigger  read more

I have no cinematic evidence to prove that Kill la Kill and Shingeki no Bahamut are similar shows. In fact, Kill la Kill is great because of it's over-the-top everything; showing skin, action, comedy, satire, anime tropes, memes and all. Shingeki no Bahamut is the polar opposite, with a structured fantasy plot with gods, angels, and demons similar to Diablo, but wrapped up in a bundle of comedy and perfect transitions from scene to scene, plot device to plot device. In fact, Kill la Kill and Bahamut have nothing to do with each other. However watching both of them made me laugh way too much,  read more

"Kill la Kill" and "Install Pilot" are action-focused anime that surround a young and brash protagonist who sought out vengeance for his or her late father, who was killed by an unknown assailant. In these two works, there exists certain individuals who possess supernatural abilities as well as covert organizations with secretive plans.

Both are action series and have main leads who are fighting for JUSTICE while wearing super-uniforms. Both shows are aware of the cliches of their genres and mixed it through their episodes, creating random and chaotic conflicts in their story. Both stories are quite a trainwreck and have twists that might make you feeling "WTH" through the shows.

Did you extremely entertaining action? Do you like hilarious moments? Do you like things that you can just shut your brain off and watch? Well, if you answered yes to those questions, you'll like Kill la Kill or Jojo. Both let you turn your brain off and let you watch some really awesome actions with a cast of pretty interesting and well developed characters. Jojo generally handles itself a lot more seriously than KLK, but that doesn't take away from either at all.

Gakuen Alice and Kill la Kill both have the star ranking system, where if you're a no star you end up with really poor living conditions, in both schools there's one person in charge and feared over everyone else, both schools also have the special ability thing where they look down upon people who don't have any cool ability's, in Kill la Kill its they're uniform and in Gakuen Alice its they're Alice's. Gakuen Alice is more for a younger audience and there isn't as much violence.

Nanatsu no Taizai is a good anime. The actions are really well made and not biased. It also has a good storyline and background stories of the main characters. If you love Kill la Kill because of it's actions and background story. Then Nanatsu no Taizai is an anime for you!
