In 1973, the invasion of an extra terrestrial life form, the BETA, began a war that has driven mankind to the brink of extinction. In an attempt to counter the BETA’s
overwhelming strength in numbers, mankind has developed the humanoid weapons known as TSFs, deploying them on the front lines of their Anti-BETA War all across the globe. However, mankind still lost the majority of Eurasia to the superior numbers of the marching BETA. For nearly 30 years mankind has remained bogged down in its struggle against the BETA with no hope in sight. In 2001, development of next-generation TSFs has become a problem for Imperial Japan, who sustains the front lines on the Far-East. As a solution, the UN proposed a US-Japan joint TSF refurbishment plan as part of their “Prominence Project”. Yui Takamura, a member of the Imperial Royal Guard, is placed in charge of this project and heads to Alaska. Meanwhile, Yuuya Bridges, a young soldier in the US Army, makes his way for Alaska as well. Little did either of them know that their encounter would forever change their destinies… Witness this exciting tale of human drama and robot action as mankind faces the brink of extinction

Dynasty Warriors Gundam Reborn does little more than its assigned duty as a playground for battle-mecha carnage. It's enjoyable in quick little brawls, never outright terrible but always a bit tedious.
It's easy to understand what Kill La Kill wants to say in every moment because its ideas are simple, but conveyed in ways never quite seen before, and its healthy splashes of humor grow out of its thematic ideas rather than combating them.
