A new commercial for Hiroyuki Imaishi and Trigger's battle action anime Kill la Kill began running in Japan. The ad features the opening theme song "Sirius" by Eir Aoi.
The ad introduces the wandering transfer student Ryūko Matoi (voiced by Ami Koshimizu) and the student council president Satsuki Kiryūin (Ryoka Yuzuki).
The other characters include:
Mysterious young man Aikurō Mikisugi
Exercise Club control committee chair Uzu Sanageyama
Intelligence Strategy Club committee chair Hōka Inumuta
Public Morals Club committee chair Ira Gamagōri
Culture Club control committee chair Nonon Jakuzure
The October anime reunites several production staff members from Gurren Lagann: director Hiroyuki Imaishi, series script supervisor/writer Kazuki Nakashima, character designer Sushio (key animator/animation director on Gurren Lagann), and the animation studio Trigger (co-founded by several former Gurren Lagann staffers).
The ad ends with the tagline, "Will you kill? Or will you be killed?"
The story is set on a high school that Satsuki rules by force. Ryūko, a transfer student wielding a giant Basami scissors sword, brings about upheaval on the campus.
