I don't like dubs... Also there is bound to be hardcore censorship. Though this is good for exposure purposes I guess.

I'll check this out when it's on.

I really want to watch the English dub on Toonami, but if anyone in my house sees me watching it, I'm screwed.
Let me tell you, having your little brother walk in during a transformation scene doesn't bring anything good.

Hopefully I can sneak episode 11 in.

Excited! Hopefully it's a good watch, since I've never seen it before!! (: (: though sad to hear that Toonami has been downgraded to 12.5 to 3.5... Hopefully ratings go up, and the old hours return!

Oh man, the Trigger craziness never ends on Toonami.

Though this show had a fuck ton of "questionable-on-American-television" scenes. I wonder how hard the censorship is going to be.

I don't think Kill la Kill is a good way to introduce American people to anime.

I disagree completely, but especially with Adult Swim's audience. Kill la Kill is over the top and bizarre just like a lot of their content.

Yeah I can see it taking off as far as popularity

Let me tell you two important pieces of information:

One, Gurren Lagann was a little out there (here and there) and it was amazing. Two, look at the non anime shows on adult swim...

But, seriously I see this as a good thing :D

I'll be rewatching Kill la Kill that night. Saw the first 4 dub episodes last summer, wasn't bad. They better play the openings, especially once it gets to the second one.

Jan 18, 2015 10:36 PM by soulless4now

I didn't think people still watch Toonami.

Damn, more people are going to think anime is child porn now.

Oh my...

Still, this is big and good news for Trigger :D More exposure, more projects to come :)
