it is not for the little ones.

kill la kill is a very nice series but not suitable for all ages. there are violent scenes in a rather playful way. blood scenes. there are swear words. nude scenes and scenes violent. The anime itself deserves a lot and well done but not suitable for all ages.

Great show

Sexual innuendo. Nudity (satire sexualizing. It's not normal anime fanservice) anime a lot of times has fanservice that feels pornographic (Food Wars) or meant to be sexy (Seven Deadly Sins) but Kill La Kill is excellent and doesn't feel traditionally sexualized and it's important for the plot. I have no problems with it, but most others will. Be cautious.
