Ryuuko Matoi is a fiery, feisty girl on a vengeful mission: she’ll find her father’s murderer at all costs, with only a giant red scissor blade as a clue to the villain’s whereabouts. Using the item as a weapon, she fights her way into the terrifying Honnouji Academy to track down a lead, unaware that the institute is brutally governed by a student council that’s anything but ordinary. Wielding special “Goku uniforms”, the group, led by president Satsuki, uses superpowers to keep the student body in check - but things are about to change now that Ryuuko’s in town!

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann

Simon lives a boring life in the underground village of Jeeha, where his main job day in and day out is to dig tunnels. His close friend Kamina, however, longs to bust out of their oppressive existence and reach the surface world where open skies and adventure await! One day, during his usual digs, Simon discovers a robot with a big face buried amongst the rocks. No sooner has he shown Kamina his mysterious find when two beings from the surface crash land into Jeeha Village - one is a gun-toting woman calling herself Yoko and the other is a terrifying mecha piloted by a Beastman! Seeing their chance to escape village drudgery, Kamina rallies Simon and Yoko to defeat the invader using their new robot, Lagann. However, upon breaking out onto the surface world, Simon, Kamina, and Yoko encounter enemies more powerful than they could have envisioned.

LinkSword

Both are super highly energetic action shows - whether it's a mecha fusion, a giant drill or a talking uniform, everything's awesome! The pace in both is fast and the action frenetic, with cool-as-heck, distinct characters and flashy shit and explosions and calling your attacks and all that stuff à la shonen we love!

And it goes without saying, but the staff for both series is pretty much the same. If you liked one you can't really go wrong with the other.

sothis

If you've seen both TTGL and Kill la Kill, you'll immediately recognize the handiwork of the same team. Super flashy and bizarre visuals; high-action, frenetic fights; pseudo ecchi moments; and overall just crazy, over the top visual overload. If you liked one I can't imagine how you'd dislike the other.

ZetsubouKaiji

Epic action with non-stop action, but these are anime where something is always happening. The action rarely stops to breathe, instead it is constantly ratcheting up the action to the highest level and then somehow finding a way to push it even futher. Both these shows have a similar art style and it's obvious they were made by the same people.

TTGL is mech and Kill La Kill focuses on melee combat but it hardly matters what the weapon when the attacks are so over the top ridiculous. If you're looking for an action thrill ride then these are the anime for you.

Bradalee

Each of these show are made by the staff, something the viewer should notice within the first minute as all the hallmarks of said staff are present.

The same distinctive art style is present in both, with its flashy and crazy battles, and similar character designs, it would be difficult not to instantly see the connection here. These shows really do have common ground in almost every aspect, from the same style of comedy down to the amazing OST that enhances every scene it accompanies.

But the biggest trait that these two shows have in common is their almost unfathomable energy. Both shows play out at breakneck pace, with barely a second going by without something happening, rather instead of ever letting up it just gets more and more frenetic. The action sequences are so similar that they even have the same over-the-top named special moves that the character just love to shout at every opportunity.

If you loved one of these shows for its balls-to-the-wall action, the other should definitely be checked out!

HasseRovdjur

Both series have some of the staff in common, and boy does it show. Awesome fights, larger-than-life characters constantly delivering overacted lines (so awesome), epic animation and really distinct visual styles make these anime very similar.

If you liked one of these, chances are high that you would enjoy the other one.

Sianeka

Both Kill La Kill and Gurren Lagann share the same creative team, and both anime reflect the distinctive team style, especially in the character designs.  If you love high action-adventure, then these anime should really hit the sweet spot. Kill La Kill is much more frantic and over-the-top, but both feature epic one-on-one battles with crazy legendary attacks and memorable inimitable individuals.

Naga

Both of these shows share the same direcor, and similarities are more than obvious with all the over-the-top funkiness. They are very different in terms of concept, but at the same time represent each other quite well. In terms of animation and general feeling of bizarre, you won't find anything more similar than this. 

TenaciousJ728

It goes without saying. If you watched both Gurren Lagann and Kill la Kill, you'll immediately make the connection. Both share the same sketchy art style, tone, humor, action and badassery. Do watch both!

robeej

Although both have very little similarities when it comes to the story line, they are very alike in illustration style and feel as well as in character design. Very energetic, funky, and really cool weaponry is overflowing!

Thrawn

Kickass action, over-the-top, large hams, badass fights and a relentless assault on the senses through rapid-fire action scenes and escalating feats of awesomeness. Insanely fun, kicks logic to the curb and are just a treat to watch.

KingGrimm

They similar throw away logic and kick reason to the curb. Plenty of action, over dramatised and remarkable characters make worth watching.

Mystotakun

Both Gurren Lagann and Kill la Kill feature the same fast paced, highly intense, non stop action. Even though Kill la Kill is more about physical weapon wielding fights and Gurren Lagann's is mostly done with mechas, the fight scenes in both are very similar.

The comedy in both are similar as well and they both often feel like a parody anime at times, pointing out the insane logic of the anime world.

If you liked Gurren Lagann - and let's face it, who didn't? - then you will like Kill la Kill. And if you like Kill la Kill and haven't watched Gurren Lagann...what's wrong with you?

BushidoPizza

Action is the first thing that comes to mind with the both of these. Everything from basic everyday stuff to the battles themselves are depicted as adrenaline rushes with everyone moving this way and that. Then comes the comedic effect and the somewhat surreal artwork they contain. Even with these, the underlying themes they contain or can be applied to can be seen.

If you liked one, you are sure to like (or love) the other!

misteruwalrus

Aside from being from the same people (trigger are ex-Gainax), these two animes are similar: Action packed, over the top, huge battles.

Panta

Both by the same company, they carry the flare and energy befitting the shounen genre. These two shows are at the top of their game and ridiculously overblown art styles and characters spouting hormone charged lines. In a way, both shows are about the gender empowerment of their characters, framed in ways specific to certain experiences and a "coming-of-age" theme.

hoffstyle

For Sheer awesome what the fu^kery, Gurren Lagann and Kill la Kill are cut from the same cloth.

JohnWatchAnime

both of these anime are made by the same companies and have a very simular art style and animation. Both anime are over the top and full of action!

otakuforever

Same over the top style is common, though while at points each series had episodes where the animation quality suffers that's overshadowed by the fact that these two series (Kill La Kill and Gurren Lagann) are epic on top of epic :p

TeeDeeDubYa

these are absurd all rediculous over the top bad assery that's good for the heart and soul.  I'll say that Gurren Lagann has a more coherent message but Kill la Kill, is so bad ass it really doesn't need one.  One second you're watching Kill la Kill... the next you're tripping balls. Nuff said.

keiniwa

The style is quite similar since one of the staffs in TTGL is involved in the production of Kill la Kill. In terms of storyline, TTGL may have a better message, while Kill la Kill, the badass and awesomeness can stand alone to make it a must watch.

Anudevil13

Both TTGL and KlKhave fast paced  and mindless action. Though TTGL takes itself a bit more seriously and is more enjoyable,Nonetheless you'll enjoy one if you liked other

thecreater

The awesome level is about the same, if you liked one, im 100% positive you will like the other, these are on my top list ever.

Zutto

At first i thought Kill La Kill was made from the same studio that did Tengen Toppa. This is not the case though.

Both Tengen Toppa and Kill La Kill are so worth it to watch.

FLCL

FLCL

Naota Nanbada is a boring young boy who leads a boring life in a boring town. His older brother has left for America, and the closest he comes to any excitement is when his deadbeat dad has too much sake. But things change one day when a bizarre girl zooms up to him on a scooter and smacks him in the face with her guitar. What's more, once Naoto returns home he discovers that this strange woman has arrived ahead of him and moved in! Not only does she constantly engage in perverted activities with Naota's father and flirt with the young man himself, but she also claims to be an alien who is searching for the ‘Pirate King.' Now, Naota must learn to live with this new intruder, deal with an odd government agent who sports exceptionally large eyebrows and the mysterious Medical Mechanica, and come to terms with the fact that there are a variety of robots and weapons emerging out of his head - amongst other things. Perhaps boring wasn't so bad after all...

ZetsubouKaiji

These are both face paced action comedies with unique visuals and heavy fanservice. In both the action is so over the top that it's funny. Both anime share a quirky sense of humor that can often be perverted in tone to go along with the ample fanservice.

The plots are quite different but the unique visuals, tone and humor mean that if you liked one then you should definitely check out the other.

Sianeka

Both Kill La Kill and FLCL feature insane absurdist surreal craziness, and you must be willing to suspend belief in order to enjoy the plotlines for these anime.  Things happen in these anime worlds that could not possibly happen anywhere else.  Robots spring from a boy's head in FLCL. School uniforms talk in Kill La Kill.  Aliens wielding guitars as weapons attack in FLCL, while half of a giant pair of scissors acts as a sword for characters in Kill La Kill.  The humor and "feel" of both anime are quite similar, so if you enjoyed Kill La Kill, I think you would not do wrong to try FLCL.

Naga

Both FLCL and Kill la Kill are fuled with same kind of mad. Funky visuals full of energy? Check. Crazy plot progression? Check. Funky charachter design? Check. Crazy fast pacing? Check. That together with similar comedy (and fanservice) and style make a perfect recommendation for one another.

nik12s

Essentially the same style of anime; same animation, same comedic sense as well as some elements of fan service. The crazy nature of the anime is also the same, with both being extremely over-the-top. 

KingArthur13th

Both series are absolutely balls to the walls insane. The animation is wild and the pacing is pretty rushed but both shows are highly enjoyable. If you found the maddness of one of these to be entertaining then you'll definitely get a kick out of the other.

TeeDeeDubYa

FLCL both have a crazy unique (not in reality) art style that I havn't seen in many anime.  FLCL is a lot more mindf*ck than Kill La Kill while Kill La Kill is rediculously Ecchi.  Seriously, how does Kill La Kill not have the Ecchi tag?  Both Anime's have a strong Female main charicter and are around same age.  Crazy, fun and fairly unpredictable is something these animes have in common.

germany1900

Kill La Kill and FLCL both share a unique art style. While although Kill La Kill has a plot that is easier to follow, both seem to embrace the "absurd for absurd's sake" attitude. 

arakn8

It's easy to see how Hiroyuki Imaishi's style has developed over the years.  He was the character designer and animation director for FLCL and worked on several other Gainax productions before forming Trigger Studios in 2011 and directing Kill La Kill.  His style is so unique and if you love one of these, that should carry over quite a bit into the other.

Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt

Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt

When there's something strange in your neighborhood, who ya gonna call? No, not the Ghostbusters. Call on Panty & Stocking, the two fallen angels Heaven-sent to clear the surface world of Ghosts – creatures spawned from mortals who met gruesome deaths. At least, that's what they'd like you to think. In reality, they're gun-toting, sword-wielding femmes fatales who lay waste not only to the evil of Daten City, but to all its bachelors and candy treats too. With a healthy dollop of collateral damage and full-frontal nudity, they always manage to save the day. If they can be bothered, that is...

CommanderKarasu

While Panty & Stocking is far more vulgar than Kill la Kill, the crazy action, thrilling music, and nonsensical settings of both series are much alike. Both have a plot involved, but the main attraction is the awesome yet wacky animation and overall silliness of the show. If you want something fast-paced and insane, give 'em a try. 

Naga

There's a lot of diferences between these two, but at the same time, funky visuals, thrilling music, funky design and fast pacing make this two quite similar in feeling. Sure, concepts are completely diferent, but they are handled in a same way, and let's not even mention that these two share the same director. Both are energetic, filed with funny moments, making it a solid recommendation to fans of either one of them. 

ZetsubouKaiji

It's true both these series are quite different in story, but they both have unique art styles and fast paced action. These anime are both over the top and have their own quirky sense of human and they both are heavy on fanservice.

Panty & Stocking is more of a comedy series and it's jokes are very crude with a lot of sex jokes. Kill is an action series that also has crude comedy, but it's not nearly as vulgar as Panty and Stockings. Still if you like one then you should try the other.

Bradalee

There are a number of huge differences between these shows, but both roll at an incredibly fast pace, have action aplenty, bizarre art styles, larger than life characters and a mental OST.

Panty and Stockign is more of a comedy series, with a pretty crude sense of humour that covers everything from faeces to sexual encounters. Kill la Kill is more of an insane action show that focuses on killer fights. Both are a visual and audible treat though, and fans of one should at least find the other intriguing. 

KingArthur13th

Over the top and absolutely nuts. It would be dificult to enjoy the crazy antics of one without enjoying the crazy antics of the other. Kill la Kill is more focused on it's story while Panty & Stocking have a party while taking detours. The animation for both series is pretty wild but still entertaining.

leilonii

they have the same parody vulger feel. hey are bith very good carton like anime. i love both the way it almost feels videogamy. 

MissCCAnarachy

They both don't hold back, whether its stupid humor or nudity, there both have strong female protagonists, who know how to kick butt, plus they both have their own unique style of animation that works really well with their very "out there" sort of plots.

Thrawn

Fast and furious, perversion and lapses of crazy combined with their visual flare for style and jacked up action. Both are balls to the wall mind driving 126 mph and while the comedy for Panty & Stocking veers towards toilet and gross humor, both have enough in common with visuals, action, lunacy and a pace that barely slows beyond breakneck to make either one a pretty solid watch if you're into style over logic/intellect.

Redline

Redline
  • Movie (1 ep x 101 min)

In a time where hover cars reign supreme and wheeled vehicles are a thing of the past, one group of dedicated speedsters aim for the ultimate goal: to compete in the notorious "Redline" race. In a no-holds-barred battle where anything goes from nitro boosters to all-out warfare and dirty tactics, competitors must be prepared for anything. Having lost out in the qualifying Yellowline race, "Sweet" JP finally gets the chance to participate in Redline as a substitute. However, with his car requiring a total rebuild, the Roboworld government using all their military might to prevent the race from happening, and host of the universe’s best racers – including the beautiful Sonoshee Maclaren – to contend with, can JP go for glory and take the checkered flag?

Just to get it out of the way, Redline and Kill la Kill have zero in common story-wise. But if you're looking for a nonstop visual onslaught of colorful/crazy scenes and fist-pumping action, look no further than either of these. If you're looking for another burst of adrenaline either of these will fit the bill.

ZetsubouKaiji

The plots don't matter for this rec because both these anime are more about their high octane action anyway. They both have slick unique visual styles and hyper stylized action that gives them a very unique look. Redline is about racing and car battles, Kill is about melee fighting but they're both stylized in how the action is presented that they give the same feeling. They both also have a quirky sense of humor and more than a touch of fanservice.

Bradalee

This isn't in the slightest a rec based on plot similarity, rather it's a rec THAT'S MAINLY based on the exhilerating action sequences that are the foundation of both shows. 

Each show has an almost excessive amount of crazy, over the top action that just oozes style, partially helped by the highly stylized art design in each show. The action in both rarely, if ever lets up, and is always accompanied by an OST than enhances every scene. The comedy in each is of similar style too, and neither is shy to throw some fanservice at the viewer.

If you enjoyed one, and are looking for the next adrenaline hit, then you could do worse than the other.

HasseRovdjur

Both are visual spectacles, full of weapons-grade awesome hijinx happening at breakneck speeds. The animation styles are vibrant, colourful and manages to inject each frame with more energy than what ought to be possible.

Fans of action-filled anime should not miss out on either of these.

sandro333

They generate the same fast paced action filled feeling and flow. Art wise they are very similar. Honky humor and absurd characters included.

Naga

Both shows give you the exact same feeling of over-the-top funkiness, and both are super fast paced and tend to throw action in your face at every corner that will never give you a moment to breathe. While Kill la Kill is a bit rougher with animation, both use similar, flashy way to present their world, which does generate a really similar feeling. Rule of the cool is omnipresent in both, and fans of others could easily like the other one. 

Berra2k

Kill La Kill and Redline are extremely similar. They both have the same kind of manic style of animation, fast moving action, and off the wall action. I would say Redline is.. well "cooler" than Kill La Kill because the main character has an old school rebel without a cause thing going for him. But if you liked one theres a good chance you would like the other despite the plots being a bit different. The feel is spot on.

Anudevil13

Both are fast paced over the top series. With loads of action ,vibrant colours and futuristic setting.

Plot wise tehy have nothing in common,but both are of same type when it comes to pacing and genre.

But what should have become a budding friendship between two siblings quickly becomes a nightmare for poor Jonathan, as Dio is cruel, calculating and will go to great lengths to become George's primary heir. Little does Jonathan know that this unfortunate childhood is only the harbinger of things to come...

Both are tour de forces of visual inventiveness, using things like varied colour palettes and texted sound effects or names to great effect. Both have a very unique look compared to their contemporaries, and they have lots of action, great characters and general awesomeness to offer.

These series share a lot, so a fan of either would do well to check out the other one.

Bradalee

Bizarre visuals are used to great effect in each of these shows, with very distinctive character designs, interesting use of colour and visual effects. Beyond that they each share great action, fun characters and a perfectly fitting OST than enhances the battles.

Both are just all round great shows, so a fan of one could do a lot worse than giving the other a go.

Taekwondoin

With VA's sent from the gods themselves to voice such Fabulous Characters, and stories that aren't afraid to mock the slight ridiculousness of themselves, one would do well to watch either show had the enjoyed the other.

JoJo is a fighting show like no other, tense, funny, and bad to the bone (in a good way), Kill La Kill seems to draw upon the same themes also.

ZetsubouKaiji

Visually unique, packed with over the top action and characters that are much larger than life, both these series will attract the same type of fans. Both series have funny moments in their more serious action moments.

JoJo isn't as frantically paced and it's art style is more refined. However, both shows share the same over the top sensibility that's it's easy to say if you enjoyed one then you should try out the other.

Naga

Even with a big difference in plot, these shows have a good number of similarities. First thing would be the obvious fast pace and to-the-point progression, and second larger than life type of charachters. Both are full on action and generate the same feeling of cool, either with bizarre bland of seriousness and comedy, or just balls to the walls action, which will probably appeal to the fans of either of those. 

Sianeka

Be a hero! Save the underdog! Ready, set, FIGHT! Both JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and Kill La Kill are all about action! While both do have an underlying serious plotline, both of these anime tell their story in a fun, keep-things-moving-along pace. Humor abounds, and the good guys have great adventure fighting the bad guys along the way. Both anime feature clear, bright visuals and effects to bring unique characters to life on a grand scale. While JoJo is a little slower paced than the frenetic Kill La Kill, both anime heroes undertake to defeat their villains and accomplish their goals with style. If you like one of these, be sure to check out the other.
