Yoko had seven wardrobe changes (not including her original costume) in the 5-minute Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann (天元突破グレンラガン) S.t.a.r.S. music video. Character designer Atsushi Nishigori (錦織敦史) created nearly all the looks—Hiroyuki Imaishi (今石洋之) had a part in the Space Look since he illustrated the entire animation cut.

Concept art for Ryuko’s berserker design from The Art of KLK Vol. 03 (Mandarake), illustrated by HIroyuki Imaishi, Yoh Yoshinari, Sushio, and Akira Amemiya. Yoh Yoshinari’s designs look like they would have been quite time consuming to animate!
