If the hype is to be believed, Kill La Kill was the shining ray in the darkness threatening to bless this season with a treasure trove of Imaishi gold. Looky here, it’s got all the tried and true predictors of a monster hit. Brilliant staff members making first full series in years? Check. Massive monster budget and reliance on hand drawn animation? All sorts of check. First full series from an oddly reclusive studio that has had hype building for more than two years now? Well that isn’t formulaic of massive shows, but it is true.
