It's not a comparison I would have made, but I can see a few small resemblances: an academy ruled by an elite few, sword (or scissor) fighting, and the expectation of a brilliant visual experience that takes advantage of what the anime medium has to offer an artist. I'm not expecting anything as genius as Utena from this, but I do have very high hopes. Little Witch Academia was fantastic, after all, and the guys at Trigger are some of the most talented the industry has ever had to offer.

...Having said all that, though, I've not been terribly impressed by what little I've seen so far. It's a small matter, but I don't much like the character designs -- particularly their outfits.

Mysterious female swordsman comes to prestigious academy to overthrow the evil school council dressed in white. I just started watching Utena a couple days ago, and I noticed it immediately.

Nakashima can write circles around Enokido and Ikuhara if he tries.

Nonon has got to be voiced by Yukari Fukui. Sparkly eyes, + shaped motifs every where. She will turn out to be an android and will deliver the first Inazuma Kick of the show.

I think Wilfri was referring to the resolution of the pictures -- they're pretty huge to not be behind an images tab.

Spoiler for Big picture...:

Some setting/story details:
Quote:
Quote:
-Honnouji is a gigant, city-like structure that exists for the sake of Honnouji Academy, which posseses the power of the Extreme Uniform.
-The entire city is ruled by the Student Council, located at the tower in the middle.
-All students stay in the town area; there is a luxury section for the talented students and a miserable slum area for the lacking students.
-The Extreme Uniform is one of the key elements of the story; it holds the power to trascend human limitations and change the world. It enhances the natural talents of the individual and grants them special abilities related to their skills, personalities and ambitions. The Student Council President, Satsuki, should be the only want with the authority to grant the power of the Extreme Uniform.
-The world itself is very wild and violent and fights break out constantly; society consists of a meritocracy enforced by fear and the Student Council; itís a culture of might makes right and the strong rule over the weak is absolute.
-The story starts at the huge gates of Honnouji; armed with a half-scissor basami sword and a Extreme Uniform of mysterious origin, a lone girl starts her journey into city. Thus begins the tale of Matoi Ryuuko...

So if anyone's still denying the Utena influences...

In any case, this still sounds very awesome.

I'm pretty sure that Utena wasn't the first series of its kind.

it's not about being the first, it's about being influential. Sailor moon was not the first mahou shoujo, gundam was not teh first mecha.

Trigger staff having a talk for Kill la Kill on USP’s stream for Wonfest 2013.
http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm21467104
Translated info by Sushiobunny - http://sushiobunny.tumblr.com/post/5...ill-la-kill-on

Otsuka did a short hype talk for Kill la Kill on USP’s stream for Wonfest 2013. He mentioned the key points people should look forward to in Trigger’s upcoming work:

-"Script": Kill la Kill feels like the anime-version of a Gekidan Shinkansen play Nakashima’s script is very ambitious and the staff constantly wondered “is doing this fine?" but they didn’t back down because they wanted the work to be as interesting as possible; Otsuka “feels like a movie". As for the VA cast: “it won’t lose to Gurren-Lagann’s" but Otsuka felt sad to announce that “Hideaki Anno isn’t voice acting in KLK".

-"Direction and Storyboard": The production staff won’t lose to the ambitous script; Otsuka has a lot of faith in Imaishi and his team’s storyboards/direction.

-"Sakuga: Animation and Drawing": they want the show to have a lot of visual personality and a hand-drawn, human-look; Sushio and the rest of the animation staff is working as hard as possible.

As for LWA 2, they won’t start working on it until production on KLK is over. When production on LWA’s first episode ended 6 months ago, Yoshinari and his team started working on KLK and since they don’t want to sacrifice quality for either work they will all be working only on KLK until it ends.

New Kill La Kill scans from NewType:

Spoiler:


Quote:
Stylish women glimmer in this world, just as stars twinkle in the night sky.
Beautiful women, sexy women, moe women.
But that doesnít mean just anyone can.
Love isnít everyoneís theme.

What youíre striving for. What your withered heart is longing for.
An extreme passion that clenches your heart.
A sentiment carried by only ONE person in the world.
A determination singularly unique in this world.

Her eyes are sharp, her words are daggers.
Chaos and paradigm roil where she treads.

Matoi Ryuuko, a woman who brings storms.
If itís her, she can do it.

The wind is blowing. Itís a cold wind.
It ruffles the girlís hair, and brings forth visions of a radically different future.

Itís the calm before the upcoming storm.
