The spiritual successor to the beloved anime series Gurren Lagann, Kill La Kill will make its U.S. television debut at 12:30 p.m. on February 7th! Given how saucy the show is — that's main character in her battle outfit, and that's not even mentioning the show's revolutionary nudists — this is just a touch insane.
Directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi and written by Kazuki Nakashima, Kill la Kill is about Ryuko Matsoi, a young high school student who comes to the prestigious but dangerous Honnouji Academy to find her father's killer, armed with a sentient, embarrassingly revealing schoolgirl outfit that sucks her blood and a giant pair of scissors. If you've seen any of Kill La Kill, you know how paltry this description is, but I don't want to blow people's minds. Here, just watch the original anime opening:
Given how much censoring Cartoon Network would need to do to alter Ryuko's outfit — she's in it pretty constantly — I assume they have to cool with the main character's state of undress, which I also assume means they won't need to censor the naked revolutionary group known as Nude Beach either, seeing as they also (barely) manage to keep the important bits covered. So I guess if you were wondering how much skin Toonami was willing to show after the midnight, the answer is a lot.
