So we know Senketsu has multiple forms he can change into. Ryuko's regular battle gear, synchronized battle gear (larger eyes and such), flying form, chainsaw, chainsaw-flight, final form, and of course regular sailor uniform. But I wonder, can he change into even more? Is jt feasable to assume he has the potential to take other forms? Senketsu-pajamas, Senketsu-swimsuit and so on.

I totally headcanon so!

There are also two arguably-canon examples that Senketsu can take on other forms.

For the first, 2014′s AnimeJapan trade show featured a gallery (and life-size cut-outs) of special-made art of Aniplex characters dressed in formal attire. Ryuko and Senketsu were included in the display, with Ryuko wearing what looks to be a fancier, red-dress version of Senketsu.

(Look closely—that’s definitely Senketsu’s eye and eyepatch!)

For the second example, Kill la Kill manga artist Ryo Akizuki included a sketch of bikini!Senketsu and Ryuko on the inside flap of the manga’s third volume.

Akizuki posted a full version of the sketch on twitter, too.

I don’t know how “canon” you can take either of the examples; the first is purely promotional, and the second is from an artist not actually involved in the anime (though, Kazuki Nakashima, head script writer, did oversee the manga and wrote it).

Regardless, though, I think they still help point to the idea that yes, Senketsu can absolutely change into other outfits if he’d like.

Sugita Tomokazu: Hey, hey I think you should… Hisako-chan, I think should get angry at him.

Kanemoto Hisako: Ah huh…

Ishikawa Kaito: Sorry, I’m sorry.

Kanemoto Hisako: Well you did say that you prefer short hair.

Ishikawa Kaito: Yes I did.

Kanemoto Hisako: So you prefer blondes.

TMS Tomb of Daisuke Jigen booth proves popular at AnimeJapan 2014!

While it does look like the teaser trailer was a no-show, the promotional booth for the upcoming Daisuke Jigen film proved popular with attendees of the recent Japanese anime convention, AnimeJapan 2014.

A TMS social networking account posted that the giant poster of Koike Jigen was a popular attraction and it really helps to set the tone for the upcoming film. The booth was hailed as a great success over the weekends festivities, which sounds promising for both TMS and fans of the lounge king himself.

We’re still looking out for that teaser trailer and any other news related to the upcoming Jigen film, so be sure to stay tuned!

It looks like those itching to see a trailer for the upcoming animated Jigen film may not be in for that long of a wait after all!

The convention is said to be airing a special teaser trailer for the film during the convention, which should be going live later today / early tomorrow.
