VIDEO: "Kill La Kill" Second Half Episode Title Playlist

Series episodes are all named for song titles

One of the elements of the reference laden Kill La Kill is that its episodes were 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. With the series now concluded, we've gone back and taken a look at the musical references.
