''Kill la Kill'' is a 2013 anime produced by Creator/StudioTrigger. A relatively new studio's first television production wouldn't normally raise too many eyebrows [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2013-05-08/kill-la-kill-anime-reunites-gurren-lagann-director-writer when announced...]] unless said studio happened to be made up of ex-Creator/StudioGainax and Creator/Studio4C members, and the production's director, writer, and lead character designer also worked together on ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. ''Kill la Kill'' was also ''heavily'' influenced by the [[TheEighties 1980s]] comedy/battle seinen anime film ''Anime/ProjectAKo'', which featured almost identical character dynamics and types amongst its main female protagonists, and a similar main conflict. ''Kill la Kill'' was originally conceived as a manga focused entirely on battle scenes, but it shifted during production to become more character-focused.

** Similarly, fansub groups have failed to translate some terms. Such as the "Goku" (極制服) Uniforms being translated into English as "Goku" ([[GagSub which conjures up the image]] [[Anime/DragonBallZ of something else]]), but the term "Goku Uniform" (極制服) roughly translates to 'Uniform of Ultimate-Oppression'. Since that doesn't really sound right in English, some fansubbers instead substituted the term [[{{Woolseyism}} "Ultima".]]

** While not quite as dark as ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', the second half of this show is a pretty dark take on the magical girl genre with characters getting eaten and turned into clothing by a [[AliensAreBastards psychopathic alien race]].

* WithOurSwordsScene: In episode 24, after she and the rest of the cast can no longer fight [[spoiler:Ragyo]], as she has just taken off to space to broadcast [[spoiler:Absolute Submission]] across the world, ''everyone'' present, from [[spoiler:the Elite Four]] to Mako's family, loan their clothing's power to Ryuko (getting naked in the process) to power Senkestu up for the [[spoiler:final battle]].

** This is an effect of the differences between Japan and America: [[spoiler: in Japan, a girl asking another on a 'date' is taken platonically.]]


Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler: This probably seems weird for American audiences, but in Japan a 'date' between two girls is seen as a platonic thing. A better translation would be a girl's day out, but that doesn't sound quite as dramatic.]]

** It should be noted that in Japan, [[spoiler: a girl asking another on a date tends to have a platonic rather than romantic connotation, which would put Ryuko and Mako in a HeterosexualLifePartner relationship. Of course, the show does throw in an incredible amount of LesYay between the two; even if the ShipTease between Mako and Gamagoori is more blatant.]]
