~ Nui after her arms have been cut off during her fight with Ryuko

Nui Harime is the secondary antagonist of the 2013 anime Kill La Kill. She is the Grand Couturier for the main antagonist of the series Ragyo Kiryuin alongside with Rei Hōōmaru.

She is voiced by Yukari Tamura in the Japanese version, and Stephanie Sheh in the English version.


Nui was a Life Fiber-infused human that was born from an artificial womb. Prior to the show's main story, she fought with Ryuko's father Isshin Matoi, and he succeeded in cutting her right eye out with two pieces of the scissors blade. She then murders him, and then nonchalantly mentions to Ryuko that she killed her father in the main show. Nui is a Lolita-like young woman who seemingly has a bubbly like personality. However, underneath that facade is a very sociopathic individual who is greatly sadistic. This true version of her only ever surfaces when the odds are against her. If the situation is greater than she can handle, she would drop the facade, and act aggressively. It's also shown that she may hold hard grudges. One of the main reasons that she targets Ryuko and tries to kill her is most likely her still being enraged that her father cut out her eye.

As of episode 22, Ryuko manages to cut Nui's arms off. At first, Nui wasn't really horrified, because she assumed that they would just simply regenerate back onto her. However, to her horror, her arms did not regenerate, and to add salt on her wounds, Ryuko stomps on her arms. This ultimately causes Nui to drop her bubbly facade and try to kill her as revenge.





  • Yukari Tamura previously played Nanoha Takamachi, the titular main heroine in Magical Lyrical Nanoha series.
  • 'Nui' means sewing and 'Harime' means stitch, which is an interesting nod to her sewing abilities.
  • There exists a fan theory that Nui somehow managed to escape death by possessing Mako Mankanshoku.
  • If one looks closely at Nui's good eye, it is noticeable that the glints and glimmers in it form the shape of a grinning devil-like mask, with horns.
