Anime Limited acquire Kill la Kill home video rights

Ever since Studio Trigger’s brilliantly wacky Kill la Kill anime started airing last year, it has been streaming to the United Kingdom on in a joint venture with Anime Limited and the series has become pretty popular, so it should come as no surprise to learn that Anime Limited have picked up the home video rights to the series. Anime Limited’s spokesperson Tsumugu Kinagase wanted us to tell you two useful pieces of information:

1) The first volume of Kill la Kill will be available on home video sometime in the last quarter of this year.


2) The series will be able to be bought as download-to-own from Wakamin’s website in the near future.

The official series description is as follows:

Ryuko Matoi is a vagrant school girl traveling from place to place searching for clues to the truth behind her father’s death—the “woman with the scissor blade.” The journey has led Ryuko to Honnouji Academy. Honnouji Academy—where an elite group of students is granted superhuman powers by their special uniforms called the “Goku uniform.” With the power of the uniform, the student body president, Satsuki Kiryuin rules the students with unquestioned power and fear. Satsuki holds the secret to the “scissor blade” and Ryuko confronts Satsuki to gain information but was their encounter a mere coincidence or fate? The clash between the two will soon consume the whole academy!
