(Santa Monica, CA)–Anime fans can look forward to a very hot summer this year as Aniplex of America announced today on their “Aniplex Live Show” the English voice cast and the physical release details of the hit animated series KILL la KILL. Aniplex of America has confirmed that they will release KILL la KILL on both Blu-ray and DVD in a total of 5 volumes with the first volume set for release on July 15th.

KILL la KILL is an original anime series from Director Hiroyuki Imaishi and writer Kazuki Nakashima, who collaborated previously to bring the equally popular Gurren Lagann series. Along with the magnificently bold techniques of studio TRIGGER, comes an anime series that Anime News Network describes as being “unstoppable, uncontrollable, and completely unhinged; about as fun as a show can be.” Since its simulcast began in October of 2013, KILL la KILL has grabbed the attention of anime fans with its unique story and characters that are in a class by itself. OTAKU USA Magazine writes that KILL la KILL is an anime series that “will remind you why you became a fan of anime in the first place,” while Fandom Post describes it as “epic, spectacular, and exhilarating.”
The KILL la KILL Limited Edition will be distributed in limited quantities and will be sold only while supplies last.
