One does not tune into an anime directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi for subtlety.

For over a decade, Imaishi has been known as one of anime’s most raucous storytellers. In series like “Gurren Lagann” (2007), “Kill la Kill” (2013) and “Space Patrol Luluco” (2016), goofy super-robots, sentient schoolgirl uniforms and teenage space officers bounce across the screen in furious high-stakes battles while bellowing increasingly absurd declarations of dedication to justice and friendship. Just try to get through an episode without a grin on your face.
