Why are the top shows I’m looking forward to must have back-to-back premieres? I’ll be hard for the rest to keep up with these great shows. 

Expectations: Moderate

Verdict: Good

Summary: It starts out with a student of Honnuji Academy steals a one-star Goku uniform and was punished for it by Ira Gamagoori, one of the four school elites. Ryuko transfers to the academy. They’re supposed to bow down to the elites especially to Lady Satsuki.  Ryuko makes a scene claiming that Satsuki, the student council president stole the other half of the scissors. A fight ensues where she had to retreat. A sailor uniform possesses Ryuko. The rematch happens and it’s obvious who wins. The biggest shock was that a Goku uniform lost.

Thoughts: I was anticipating this anime because its made by the team behind Gurren Lagann. Personally, the anime style and narration isn’t my style but I think it’s worth trying out. It was pretty quirky and refreshing in a good way. The raw energy was one of it’s strongest points. I love how we have a strong backstory that will be filled with epic fights. I’m intrigued what’s Satsuki’s role in Ryuko’s father’s death. It will be cool to also see how the non-stars eventually join Ryuko and help her out  in this quest.[Kill%2520la%2520Kill%2520-%252001%2520-24%255B2%255D.jpg]

Initial Rating: 8.5/10
