[AOW] Kill la Kill (12/1-7/2013)

[Previous AOWs][Akia's MAL page]

Nothing like featuring an anime that's about crazy amounts of action and fan service to start off December. ANYWAYS, I am really late to the game with this one because I've been spending too much of my time trying to finish the story mode on Persona 4 Arena and lots League of Legends in between looking for a new job or two as well as getting through finals (I really want this semester of college to be over). This has resulted in a service lack of my watching anime. During this time, Kill la Kill has been the have to watch anime this season. It's pretty much as crazy as Panty and Stocking; no surprise considering a good chunk of the staff that worked on P&S is working on this anime as well.

Type: I'm not really sure how to classify this since this manga has been coming out since around the same time the anime started... this could be the same thing that happened with Evangelion
# of Episodes: 25
Ryuuko Matoi carries a large weapon shaped like half of a pair of scissors. She's looking for the woman with the other half, who killed her father. Satsuki Kiryuuin, student council president of Honnouji Academy, is said to know the woman's identity, so Ryuuko transfers there. Those who arrive at the school receive a special "goku uniform," and Satsuki has used that power to rule the school in fear.
The story is set on a high school that the student council president Satsuki Kiryuuin rules by force. Wielding a giant Basami scissors sword, the wandering transfer student Ryuuko Matoi brings about upheaval on the campus. Ryuuko searches for the mysterious figure who caused her father's death, but confronting her are the student council's "four divine kings." Fortunately, Ryuuko is aided by a talking sailor uniform who tells her, "Wear me. When I am worn by you, this power will become manifest."
