Aniplex of America Announces Kill la Kill Complete Blu-ray Box Set Release this Christmas

“Life Fiber Synchronize! Kamui Senketsu” Studio TRIGGER's iconic series gets a long awaited complete box set release!

SANTA MONICA, CA (JULY 4, 2019) – Aniplex of America is thrilled to announce the long awaited KILL la KILL Complete Blu-ray Box Set available on December 24 in the U.S., Canada, and Central and South Americas.

KILL la KILL was a return to form in a sense for Director Imaishi. Created by the legendary duo, Kazuki Nakashima, and Hiroyuki Imaishi who also directed Gurren Lagann, the result is as Cam Shea of IGN puts it, “[it's] creative, weird, super high energy and wonderfully animated. It also manages to indulge in, while simultaneously parodying, many classic anime tropes.”

The box set will contain five Blu-ray discs, a booklet, and, with brand new, exclusive cover art by Director Hiroyuki Imaishi. All twenty-five episodes come complete with the Complete Blu-ray Box Set will be complete with both English and Japanese audio and English and Spanish subtitles.

About KILL la KILL:
“Life Fiber Synchronize! Kamui Senketsu!!”

The anime created by the legendary duo of Kazuki Nakashima and Hiroyuki Imaishi (Gurren Lagann) is finally reborn as a complete Blu-ray box set!

Honnouji Academy, a school ruled by students clad in special outfits called Goku Uniforms. Deriding the student body as "pigs in human clothing," Student Council President Satsuki Kiryuin, along with her loyal lieutenants, the Elite Four, takes absolute control of the entire campus. One day, a vagrant schoolgirl named Ryuko Matoi appears and tries to get Satsuki, who recognizes her Scissor Blade, to talk. Was their encounter mere coincidence, or was it fate? The clash between the two will soon consume the whole academy!
