posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Animedia magazine is revealing additional cast for Hiroyuki Imaishi and Trigger's battle action anime Kill la Kill on Tuesday. The series' television commercial already introduced Ami Koshimizu as Ryūko Matoi and Ryoka Yuzuki as Satsuki Kiryūin last week.
The rest of the main cast are:
Shinichiro Miki as mysterious young man Aikurō Mikisugi
Nobuyuki Hiyama as Exercise Club control committee chair Uzu Sanageyama
Hiroyuki Yoshino as Intelligence Strategy Club committee chair Hōka Inumuta
Tetsu Inada as Public Morals Club committee chair Ira Gamagōri
Mayumi Shintani as Culture Club control committee chair Nonon Jakuzure
Toshihiko Seki as Ryūko's talking sailor uniform Senketsu
The anime's official website already added profiles for most of the above characters. The site also confirmed on Wednesday that the television series will receive a manga adaptation drawn by Ryou Akizuki (Asura Cryin', Uchuu no Stellvia).
The story is set on a high school that the student council president Satsuki Kiryūin rules by force. Wielding a giant Basami scissors sword, the wandering transfer student Ryūko Matoi brings about upheaval on the campus. Ryūko searches for the mysterious figure who caused her father's death, but confronting her are the student council's "four divine kings." Fortunately, Ryūko is aided by a talking sailor uniform who tells her, "Wear me. When I am worn by you, this power will become manifest."
The 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).
