Synopsis of Kill la Kill
Following the murder of her father, Ryuuko Matoi has been wandering the country in search of her killer. Following his only clue – the lost half of his invention, the scissor blade – he arrives at the prestigious Honnouji Academy, an institute unlike any other. The academy is ruled by the towering and ruthless student council president, Satsuki Kiryuuin, along with her powerful subordinates, the Elite Four. In the brutally competitive hierarchy of the school, Satsuki bestows those at the top with special clothes called “Goku Uniforms,” which grant the wearer unique superhuman abilities. After being defeated in a fight against one of the uniformed students, Ryuuko retreats to her devastated house, where she stumbles upon Senketsu, a rare and sensitive “Kamui,” or God’s clothing. After coming into contact with Ryuuko’s blood, Senketsu awakens, clings to her and gives her immense power. Now armed with Senketsu and the Scissors Blade, Ryuuko faces the Elite Four, hoping to catch up with Satsuki and uncover the culprit for her father’s murder once and for all.
