See Kill la Kill’s Sketches That Became the Iconic Opening

Kill la Kill is Studio Trigger's most well-known anime series, and a large part of its success has to do with the animation. 

Every bit of flashy animation starts out as a sketch. The following key visual sketches are from Kill la Kill Animation Originals Book, Vol .01 via artbooksNAT.

Even Ronnie del Carmen, co-director of Pixar's Inside Out, has recently felt the Kill la Kill hype after a few years. He tweeted out a few key visual sketches. Maybe they will serve are inspiration for Pixar's next movie?

I love all things that are cute, magic-based, and easy going! My biggest obsessions of all time are Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches and Fairy Tail. Let's go shipping!
