    Who doesn't love the strange and unusual events that took place in Kill La Kill? Not to mention some of the great humor that came out of it in between the very serious fight scenes. If you want something that's equally as awesome but has just as much action, we'd recommend One Punch Man. Having lived as a businessman up until recently, Saitama had a very normal life that was rather boring. Deciding to pursue his dream of becoming a superhero, he trains consistently to boost his power, losing his hair in the process. There's only one problem; now that he's grown so powerful, he can take out any major enemy with just one punch. Now he's bored at the lack of a challenge, but that all changes when a young cyborg with a need for revenge, Genos, requests Saitama be his teacher.

      The way outside life forms effect Earth is one of the things that made Kill La Kill so interesting. Thankfully, FLCL has a very similar storyline and is a classic anyone should see! Naota Nandaba lives a regular life in a small town where nothing extraordinary ever seems to happen. After his brother leaves to play baseball in America, Naota decides to take care of everything he left behind. Living in the same routine, things change when a strange pink-haired girl riding a Vespa crashes into his life, literally. Haruko Haruhara is a strange girl claiming to be an alien, which Naota wouldn't believe except that ever since their encounter a horn has begun growing out of his head!

      Death City is essentially built around its famous Death Weapon Meister Academy, a school where both meisters and their weapons go to learn and hopefully create Death's most important tools. The weapons looking to become Death Scythes are human hybrids that can transform their bodies and be used by the humans training to be meisters. Maka Albarn and her Demon Scythe, Soul Eater Evans, are working together while attending classes, hoping to collect enough souls from evil beings to turn him into the next Death Scythe. However, one mistake ruins it all and they're back to square one. A series that also revolves around a supernatural school, Soul Eater has a strong female lead with a large responsibility to justice, just like in Kill La Kill
