"Kill la Kill is one of the greatest anime series of our generation, and featuring it in OMAKASE is the perfect way to launch our service," said Rob Pereyda, CEO of Viewster Inc. "We hope that fans find that the experience we have crafted around Kill la Kill is as innovative as the show itself."
OMAKASE, a new premium service from Viewster, presents a curated journey for anime fans, inspired by the Japanese concept of omakase ("chef's choice").
