Kill la Kill first started out as an anime series directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi, who is also known for his work directing popular anime series such as Gurren Lagann and Panty & Stocking. The series also marks the first original anime series from Studio Trigger, a company co-founded by Hiroyuki Imaishi. The plot is set in Honnouji Academy, a fictional high school in Japan dominated by student council led by Satsuki Kiryuin. Ryuko Matoi, a transfer student, is in search of the owner of the other half of the scissor blade, the person who killed her father. Ryuko comes across a sentient sailor uniform she names Senketsu. Using Senketsu’s special abilities, Ryuko stands up against Satsuki and her henchmen to liberate Honnouji Academy and find out the truth behind her father’s murder. As well as an anime series, the show also spawned a manga adaptation, which began serialization in Young Ace magazine on October 4, 2013.
