VICELAND to broadcast Kill la Kill on UK Television

VICELAND and Anime Limited continue their collaboration with another anime title soon to air on TV!

Over the past couple of months Anime Limited partnered up with VICELAND to bring anime back onto the UK Televisions. Shows like Cowboy Bebop, Eureka Seven, Samurai Champloo, and Tokyo Ghoul as well as a couple movies were shown throughout.

Today, we have discovered that another show – Kill la Kill – will be airing on VICELAND starting Monday 16th October at 23:30 (11:30pm). It will be shown using the English dub. VICELAND is available on Sky Channel 153 and the NOW TV package.

Kill la Kill is the first anime from TRIGGER after the members of the GAINAX team who worked on Gurren Lagann left to form this studio. The series aired during the Autumn 2013 anime season and was one of Anime Limited’s first license acquisitions.

Here’s the story synopsis:

Honnouji Academy – where the school is ruled by students clad in special outfits called Goku Uniforms. Deriding the student body as ‘pigs in human clothing’ Student Council President Satsuki Kiryuin, along with her loyal underlings, the Elite Four, has the academy under their absolute control.

One day, a vagrant schoolgirl named Ryuko Matoi appears and tries to get Satsuki, who recognizes her Scissor Blade, to talk. Was their encounter a mere coincidence or fate? The clash between the two will soon consume the whole academy!

Kill la Kill is currently available on Blu-ray from Anime Limited.
