The Manga adaptation is pretty good it didn't feel like it was any worse than the anime I would recommend both what I cant recommend is buying the physical copies since it doesn't reach the ending and last i looked buying the 3 volumes cost over $200 USD

the comedy in it feels great the world manages to ...

Definitely an entertaining read for those who have already seen the anime, but unfortunately this adaptation is no match for the iconic work of the TRIGGER studio.

This manga covers only about. half of the original story, and yet many sections are cut or sped up too much to be fully enjoyable.

That felt like a particularly jarring and inappropriate note for the manga to finish on since the world of Kill la Kill is still so undeveloped and ultimately open ended. The story itself up to this point is practically the same as the original anime, albeit much of the detail is ...
