12 Days of Anime (2014) – Day 11 – Nui’s Animation in KILL la KILL

kill_la_kill-17-nui-villain-eye_patch-umbrella-cute-surprisedSome will argue that sakuga is the pinnacle of animation. It would be hard to argue against that. Ultimately, sakuga is known for its unparalleled quality, its aesthetic ingenuity, its dramatic emphasis, and its overall impact.
