Studio Trigger Creates Trigger Girls Art Book for Comiket
Kill la Kill frames also on sale
by Matt Schley
Trigger fans heading to this month’s Comic Market in Tokyo should make a beeline for the studio’s booth.
That’s because Trigger, the folks behind Kill la Kill, Little Witch Academia and Kiznaiver have created a special, limited-edition artbook for the festival entitled Trigger Girls Art Book.
The artbook, which will be on sale at Comiket from December 29 to 31 and goes for ¥1,500 (about $13), is full of illustrations of the Trigger website’s original mascot, Trigger-chan, from Trigger animators like Hiroyuki Imaishi and Masaru Sakamoto and artists like hima://KAWAGOE and Tokiya Sakba.
We guess that makes it less Girls Art Book than, y’know, Girl Art Book, but we won’t begrudge non-English speakers one little “s.”
Trigger is also planning to sell in-between cels from Kill la Kill at their booth. The cels will come in packs of three and sell for ¥2,000 (about $17).
Though Trigger hasn’t specified how many books or cels it’s selling, we cannot imagine either item will last too long.
