TRANSLATED STORY DETAILS FOR IMAISHI’S NEW SHOW
-The title is KILL-LA-KILL (sorry, I mistranslated)
-Director is Imaishi; series composition is by Kazuki Nakashima (he is writing the entire show himself). Sushio is doing the character designs.
-The theme is “ruthless sword-fighting action in an all-girls high school” but focused on CHARACTER DRAMA
-A transfer student wielding a weird sword that looks like half-scissors arrives at a school ruled by power and starts causing trouble.
-The main characters are heroine Ryuuko and rival Satsuki. Ryuuko’s theme is “UNIFORM X REVENGE”, Satsuki’s theme is “UNIFORM X DOMINATION”. The heart of the show is their relationship and rivalry.
-They were very specific in saying that both Ryuuko and Satsuki are the “protagonists” and that “their rivalry is what drives the entire series”.
-Satsuki rules the school with the power of her uniform and Ryuuko opposes her. The main drama is created betwen these two characters.
-The show has two sides to it: BATTLE MANGA and CHARACTER DRAMA. It is set to run for 2-cours (24-26 episodes).
-Release date unannounced.
Sounds amazing and I can’t wait.
