Kill la Kill coming to VICELAND

Dan has been writing for UK Anime Network since 2013, and has been the site's Anime Editor since August 2017.

Thanks to Anime Limited and VICELAND teaming up we've been treated to a plethora of top anime shows on our TVs (well, if you have Sky - which I don't *shakes fist*). Meaning series such as Cowboy Bebop, Eureka Seven, Samurai Champloo, and Tokyo Ghoul have graced our screens recently.

Well, there's more to come because VICELAND have taken to Twitter to announce that Kill la Kill will also be airing on the channel. Beginning Monday 16th October at 23:30 (11:30pm), they will be broadcasting the English dubbed version of the series. For those of you wishing to take advantage of the screening, VICELAND is available on Sky channel 153 and via NOW TV.

Kill la Kill was the first anime produced by TRIGGER, after the studio's founders - who worked on Gurren Lagann - left GAINAX to form a new studio. Airing during the Autumn 2013 anime season, it was one of Anime Limited’s first license acquisitions. The series is still available on Blu-ray from Anime Limited, who provide the following 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!"
