The Kazuki Nakashima, the writer of of Kil La Kill, released some information on the creaton of Kil La Kill (translated by someone on the Escapist, not Yahtzee Crosshaw)...

Writer Kazuki Nakashima wrote some stuff about Kill la Kill for his Asahi Shinbun column:

-When coming up with the concept, they were very careful to not fall in the "Curse of Gurren-Lagann"; Kill la Kill has a different sort of atmosphere.

-In the most basic terms, Nakashima describes it as a show about the conflict between two super-powered high-school girls.

-(Kamen Rider)Fourze was also a show set in a high-school, but it's completely different from Kill la Kill; Nakashima feels they helped each other define their mutual identities. (In the TBS Radio, he quickly explained these ddifference: Fourze was a happy, cheerful story styled after an American high-school; Kill la Kill is a violent and more dramatic and somber story styled after the Meiji Era.)

-Nakashima doesn't want to sound cocky, but he said he had a lot of fun writing it.

-Despite not being originally inteded, the "amount of heat" is higher than that in Gurren-Lagann.

-Nakashima has done most of the writing himself; the show is more Nakashima-like and Imaishi-like than TTGL.

-The screenplay is already in the end-game; Nakashima is about to start writing the final episode.

-He hopes the fighting spirit of Trigger, who separated from Gainax to form their own company, will be reflected in KLK.

Having a higher amount of heat could mean a lot of things, but heat could also mean tension given off in battle. And for those unaware, Gurren Lagann was literally the size of a galaxy at the end, and therefore pretty powerful. For now it's only speculation, we'll have to wait until October to find out. But on an information sheet for the main character, the word galaxy is seen.

Doubt it will be more powerful than TTGL, but DBZ Saiyan and Namek Saga would be pretty impressive.

Do you mean like be more popular, make more money, etc or do you mean literally like the characters will be more powerful than those in Guren?

If it's the former, I don't think so. If it's the latter, I've got no clue. I dropped GL after about 3 or 4 episodes.

@sickVisionz: One of the creators said;

-Despite not being originally inteded, the "amount of heat" is higher than that in Gurren-Lagann.

This could mean a lot of things, but it could mean power too. For an example of Gurren Laganns power...

Easily galactic to universal range. The movie version is even stronger.

Now the series has started, I have a few theories on this...

Whenever a uniform is destroyed, Senketsu absorbs a thread into it/him. It's possible that every Goku uniform has at least one thread in it, and all of which originalted from Senketsu (why the uniform is so revealing). Senketsu is a Kamui uniform, which is described as being far stronger than any Goku uniform.

I can see that being true, except there is more than one Kamui, so if it were true not all of the life fibers would originate from senketsu.

I bet that this series will outpower Gurren Lagann by the end. I mean right in the first few episodes she is already more powerful than Simon & Kamina were in their first episodes.

We have our first planetary feat...

Note she says that in the end the greater power was contained in him (the wearer), not the uniform.

Think it's too early to tell if this series will be as overpowered as Gurren Lagann and that the comments from Ryuko's foe were exaggerated greatly considering this series is playing up the hot-blooded character types like Gurren Lagann did.
