Bask in the glow of Satsuki Kiryuin's Kill la Kill shirt


“Ask not the sparrow how the eagle soars!”

Hardcore Chocolate has become well known around these parts for spinning some cool fibers for Kill la Kill characters, using flat, monochromatic illustrations that really pop. Their yellow-themed Mako Mankanshoku design and red-themed Ryuko Matoi/Senketsu design are incredibly cool, causing quite a buzz on the internet -- but I've been waiting for the inevitable missing piece that would complete the primary color trio of bad-ass protagonists.

At last, everyone's favorite school dictator Satsuki Kiryuin is joining the line-up, and it's glorious. Rocking the blue, Junketsu-donning Satsuki is in her iconic dominant pose, with all the punky stylings that Hardcore Chocolate is known for. Take a look at the gallery below to see all their character shirts.

Now, if I had any say in what Kill la Kill shirts I want to see crop up next, I'd personally love a series for the villains, Ragyo and Nui. Another natural addition would be a series incorporating the student council 'Elite Four'. Hell, just having a Nonon Jakuzure shirt would probably cause a frenzy!

Running at ¥3,800 (about $38 USD) this shirt is not cheap, and you'll likely have to jump through a few hoops to acquire these, either via proxy or navigating through a Japanese order form (not to mention the deadly shipping costs), but these are some quality designs and some of the most attractive shirts based on an anime I've seen.
