It’s an anime that got me pumped to be on Crunchyroll every week for a new episode and it was a series that drew me towards my very first freelance position. Kill la Kill is an anime that continues to impress me no matter how many times I return to it. It fills me with passion and often is the reason why we feel refreshed and ready to tackle anime again; I cannot say that for any other anime. It is like hitting a reset button and feeling pumped to take on the anime community at large.
Now it’s time to show some skin by peeling back the layers of art and core design to take an appreciative look at what makes us love this anime so much. Let’s start by taking a look at some of the most gorgeous and amazing music in an anime to date. It is full of heart, strength, struggle and feverish passion. This anime has a soundtrack that is heavenly and familiar. The use of German in a few of the titles seemed to have taken inspiration from other titles of the time, Attack on Titan to name just one, but it is a welcomed one and adds a layer of appreciation unlike any other. The second opening, being a wide favorite among fans introduced us and the world to the brilliance that is GARNiDELiA.
The music was tied perfectly to every scene from the more emotional, to the lavishly triumphant feeling around Lady Satsuki. It echoed the raw power of control, rebellion and a heart that just begged to take its own stride. Characters are another glorious aspect and there is no shortage of wacky and strong characters here. They all manage to stand strongly in their respective camps and they feel as if they have had years of character development. From this developed background we bear witness to some of the best made characters in a long while. Each one had a motive, had a past and reason for what they were doing; even if they were weirdly obscure or masochistic in nature.
In the end Kill la Kill remains an anime that we are overtly fond of for reasons of story and music. This also remains an anime that I watched as it aired for the very first time. Much like our experience with Naka-Kon 2015 we couldn’t help but feel a budding sensation when keeping up with an anime show that made us joyful every day it aired. We know you all have an anime that you adore to the same level as we do Kill la Kill, so let us know what anime(s) that may be in the comment section down below.
