On Monday November 3, Anime Limited will release the DVD of the first volume of Kill la Kill, carrying the first nine episodes of the series.
The heroine is Ryūko Matoi (Ami Koshimizu), seeking her father's killer. Her search brings her to Honnōji Academy, an insane high school, where she must fight endless battles. Kill La Kill is an original anime from Studio Trigger (Little Witch Academia) that premiered on MBS Tv in Japan on the 3rd of October. Studio Trigger consists of several staff from Gurren Lagann including director Hiroyuki Imaishi (Dead Leaves, Gurren Lagann, Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt), series script supervisor/writer Kazuki Nakashima (Gurren Lagann, Nodame Cantabile: Finale, Re: Cutie Honey) and character designer Sushio (key animator/animation director on Gurren Lagann and Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt).
The Blu-ray edition of Kill la Kill Volume 1 will be released on December 1; the Blu-ray delay was caused by a synch problem on one episode.
