KILL la KILL
Kill la Kill, known as "Kill the Kill" in English, is studio Trigger's first full length television anime. With all style and no budget, the former Gainax employees really push the medium to the limit. As masters of visual storytelling we see Trigger use this scene as a visual metaphor. The main character is introduced biting a whole lemon, later to have it stolen by some tiny ruffian. This really sets the whole theme for the show and its studio: "When life gives you lemons, might as well eat."
