Peace has returned to Honnouji Academy at last, and now that it has served its original purpose, the unique high school is set to be shut down within a month. However, there is still one final event that must take place: the graduation ceremony. As each member of the student council prepares to leave their past selves behind to focus on what they would like to do in the future, Satsuki Kiryuuin struggles to find her own path, having lost her resolve after finally achieving victory.

But just before she is to give her speech to the student body, the ceremony is disrupted by mysterious beings that are identical to the student council members. As Ryuuko Matoi and the Elite Four prepare for battle once more, they quickly discover that the one pulling the strings is an old enemy who has returned to take revenge.

Its Bloody Awesome to see this anime again!!
I had such a fun time watching the anime series since It
has a very Dynamic Blast of entertainment value which is what I
appreciate a lot with kill la kill, Its fearless and crazy at the same time!.
As for the KLK special,

This is a special added episode taking place right after the series had left off along with all
the existing characters as they send us the KLK viewers their last love letters from Studio Trigger’s definition of an All out humorous Fan-service action-packed anime,
unforgiving and Relentless mindless fun.

This was similar to the series except a read more

Despite enjoying Kill la Kill, I didn't enjoy this special as much as I thought I would have. I'm not quite sure why I originally thought the special was going to be great and something worthwhile to anticipate, but somehow my eagerness and high expectations left me feeling a bit disappointed.

The story behind the special is a pretty average one. There's not much going for it, given that it's essentially an episode equivalent of filler that tries to throw a lot at you in a short period of time. Actually, that's exactly what this special is. While graduating Honnouji Academy was ultimately the main read more

This is the final episode of Kill la Kill. It's not really a "special" or a side-story, but a rather necessary part of the series to tie up the whole story.

I'm going to miss this show, it was a lot of fun. Genuine, good fun with a truly memorable cast and a over-the-top, jankily-animated style, and we probably won't see anything on-par with it for a long time. The final episode's audiovisual appeal is on-par with the best of series, with fluid action, cheap-but-hilarious animation shortcuts in between, and a bit of time with every good track from the stellar OST.

Even after the final battle read more

The Kill la Kill OVA has been something I have been waiting for since finishing the series in June. As someone who has been on different forums for the series, I built up a substantial amount of hype for this. Did it deliver? To be honest, I initially didn't like this OVA, feeling it was unnecessary. After spending a few days thinking about it, I have finally come to this conclusion: It was a good episode, but could've been better if they waited to release it a year or two later.

DISCLAIMER: I'm going to expect anyone reading this review has already seen Kill la Kill, read more
