VIDEO: The "Kill la Kill" Half Way Point Playlist

Series episodes are all named for song titles

One of the elements of the reference laden Kill La Kill is that its episodes are all named for songs, mostly the same 70s/80s time frame as the Go Nagai manga and Sukeban Deka-type pop culture built into its DNA. So, as the series goes into a couple week hiatus between halves, it's a good time to look back at the songs that inspired the first twelve episodes.


1. If Only I Had Thorns Like a Thistle...""Azami no Gotoku Toge Areba"


2. "So Sexy She Might Pass Out" "Kizetsu Suru Hodo Nayamashii"


3. "Junketsu""Junketsu"


4. "Dawn of a Miserable Morning" "Totemo Fukō na Asa ga Kita"


5. "Trigger" "Hikigane"


6. "Don't Toy With Me on a Whim" "Kibun Shidai de Semenaide"


7. "A Loser I Can't Hate" "Nikumi Kirenai Rokudenashi"


8. "I Will Wipe My Own Tears" "Ore no Namida wa Ore ga Fuku"


9. "A Once in a Lifetime Chance" "Chansu wa Ichido"


10. "I Want to Know More About You" "Anata o Motto Shiritakute"


11. "I'm Not Your Cute Woman" "Kawaii Onna to Yobanai de"


12. "Spit Your Sadness Away" "Kanashimi ni Tsuba o Kakero"
