Aniplex USA, Daisuki to stream Hiroyuki Imaishi, Trigger's series in 5 languages

Aniplex USA posted a three-minute English-subtitled trailer on Wednesday for Hiroyuki Imaishi and Trigger's battle action anime Kill la Kill. The trailer is the same as the one Trigger posted on the show's official website earlier this month. The video introduces the show's main cast and previews the opening theme song "Sirius" by Eir Aoi.

Aniplex of America previously revealed in August that it has licensed the series for release on home video, and the company will stream the series on Daisuki, Crunchyroll, Hulu, and the Aniplex Channel hours after it airs in Japan.

Additionally, Daisuki announced on Wednesday that it will stream the series with subtitles in five languages: English, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, and German. Daisuki's stream will be worldwide except in the following regions: Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Ireland, some Asian areas, France, and some French-speaking areas.

Hiroyuki Imaishi and Trigger's battle action anime Kill la Kill will premiere on Japan's MBS television station on October 3. The story is set in a high school where the student council president Satsuki Kiryūin (voiced by Ryoka Yuzuki) rules by force. Wielding a giant Basami scissors sword, the wandering transfer student Ryūko Matoi (Ami Koshimizu) brings about upheaval on the campus. Ryūko searches for the mysterious figure who caused her father's death.

Standing in her way are the "four divine kings" on campus: Public Morals Club committee chair Ira Gamagōri (Tetsu Inada), Exercise Club control committee chair Uzu Sanageyama (Nobuyuki Hiyama), Intelligence Strategy Club committee chair Hōka Inumuta (Hiroyuki Yoshino), and Culture Club control committee chair Nonon Jakuzure (Mayumi Shintani). Additional cast members include Shinichiro Miki as the mysterious young man Aikurō Mikisugi, Aya Suzaki as second-year student Mako Mankanshoku, Ryūko's best (and only) friend, Toshihiko Seki as the talking sailor uniform Senketsu, Ayumi Fujimura as Mako's little brother, Yukari Fukui as Mako's mom, and Kenyuu Horiuchi as Mako's dad.

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).

Akira Amemiya is serving as assistant director, and Shigeto Koyama is directing the art with set designer Yoh Yoshinari. Hiromi Wakabayashi is credited as "creative officer," and Hiroyuki Sawano is scoring the soundtrack. Miku Sawai contributed the ending theme song "Gomen ne, Ii Ko Ja Irarenai."
