Review

'But for anyone else, if you are looking for a fun, action-filled ride with tons of humor and a story that loves to play around with your preconceptions about magical girl anime, this is the anime for you' --Kotaku

'It's retro shonen action pushed to such loony, hyperactive extremes that it's both thoroughly cool (especially where Ryuko and Satsuki are concerned) and screamingly funny. As I said, a joy.' --Anime News Network

This review will not be about the anime itself. It is absolutely fantastic. No, this will be a comparison between the three Limited or Collectors Edition releases of Kill La Kill in North America, the UK and Australia as of October 27, 2014 or 27 October, 2014 for those of you not in North America. All prices and conversions are as of the aforementioned date.
THE NORTH AMERICAN RELEASE:
Kill la Kill volumes 1-4 are priced at $59.98 or £37.27 EACH. The limited editions are released with both BD and DVD.
The first volume contains episodes 1-4, each successive volume contains 5 episodes. Volume 2 contains episodes 5-9, volume 3 contains episodes 10-14 and volume 4 contains episodes 15-19 I'm ASSUMING volume 5 will be the last one containing episodes 20-24 with the extra episode 25 as the bonus.
Vol 1 comes with the episodes on BD and DVD, a bonus Rearrange/Remix CD, postcards, and a double sided poster.
Vol 2 comes with the episodes on BD and DVD, a bonus Making Of Documentary #1 DVD, postcards, a double sided poster and a collectible Weiss Schwarz trading card (limited).
Vol 3 will come with the episodes on BD and DVD, the second original soundtrack, postcards, a double sided poster.and a Weiss Schwarz trading card (limited).
Vol 4 will come with the episodes on BD and DVD, a second Making Of Documentary #2 DVD, postcards, a double sided poster and a Weiss Schwarz trading Card (limited).
Vol 5 hasn't been announced yet but I assume it will contain the 25th episode, the Making Of Documentary #3 DVD which was in the 9th vol Japanese release, and going with the previous ones, postcards and double sided poster and maybe a limited edition trading card.
UK RELEASE:
DVD version is priced at £36.00 or $57.94 USD
BD version is priced at £43.25 or $69.

Ryûko Matoi is a violent young schoolgirl who has been traveling from school to school searching for information about the murder of her father, her only clue being half of the giant pair of scissors in the murder. When Ryûko arrives at Honnouji Academy she finds a fascist state ruled with an iron fist by the Student Council President Satsuki Kiryuin and the Elite Four of the Student Council. Ryûko soon discovers that Satsuki knows something about her father's death but she is outmatched by the superpower granting Goku Uniforms used by the high ranking members of Honnouji Academy and so, needing power of her own, she stumbles across something that her father left her that could change the balance of power.

This first of three sets of episodes for the brilliant 'Kill la Kill' anime contains the first nine episodes of the series across two discs taking the series from the beginning to the battle against Gamagôri during the Naturals Election. The series was something of a phenomenon when it was originally shown and while I am not one to buy into the massive hype that surrounded it, I would agree that it is probably one of the most entertaining anime of recent years. The series is made by the same people who created 'Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann' and, although I haven't seen that series, from what I have read 'Kill la Kill' is just as entertainingly insane.

Due to a relatively low budget, the animation of the series is a strange mix of basic and spectacular but for some reason this works brilliantly and adds great character to the show as it allows the animators to get very creative in places. The battles throughout the series are very entertaining however with a lot of weird and wonderful weapons and abilities granted by the Goku Uniforms and Kamui.

KILL LA KILL (2013-2014) is the latest project from director Hiroyuki Imaishi and writer Kazuki Nakashima, who made a breakthrough with GURREN LAGANN (2007), which was animated at the legendary Studio GAINAX. In 2011, Imaishi and Nakashima left GAINAX to form their own animation studio, Trigger, and announced that it's first work would become KILL LA KILL. Given the popularity of GURREN LAGANN, there was alot of interest to see how it would turned out. Even if KILL LA KILL didn't became bigger than GURREN LAGANN, it still it's own thing and it help bring Trriger into the spotlight to anime fans across the world.

Taking place in Honnouji Academy, where students wear a special type of uniform that gives them super powers called Goku Uniforms, KILL LA KILL centers on Ryuko Matoi, a transfer student who is seeking answers to her father's death and is carrying with her a scissor-shaped longsword. She confronts Satsuki Kiryuin, the head of the student council who rules Honnouji with an iron fist, and finds a companion in the form of Senketsu, a sentient sailor uniform that transforms her into action when she feels like it. And that's where I will stop explaining about the synopsis. Now onto the review!

During it's airing, KILL LA KILL polarizes a number of viewers. Some liked it, but some didn't because they were put off by the amount of fan-service. I just like to say that this show does NOT glorify fan-service AT ALL. As well being an non-stop action comedy-drama with an element of sci-fi, the show is a biting satirical view of how some people view fan-service in Anime and Manga.
