Kill la Kill trailer

Debuting in Japan later this month, Kill la Kill is an anime from Studio Trigger. Trigger is comprised of former Gainax employees, which explains why the animation style of Kill la Kill bears such a striking resemblance to that of Gurren Lagann. While the premise of Kill la Kill appears to be one girl's determination to face off against the school and its staff (as shown in the trailer), it also seems to be something of a spiritual successor to both FLCL and Gurren Lagann, blending some of the themes present in both of those shows like a strong lead female protagonist, the goal of taking down a force much larger than oneself, as well as exaggerated weapons and character designs and, of course, a glowing drill or two. Gainax is easily one of my all-time favorite anime studios, and I'll certainly be keeping an eye on the up-and-comers over at Trigger as they prepare to release this very interesting and exciting looking anime.
