Trigger really follows Kanada School style of animation for most of their works now that focuses on making striking poses, deformation (off-model) of characters rather than fluid animation its the opposite style of Kyoto Animation that usually have fluid animation and on-model characters

Trigger got some Kanada School animators anyway like Imaishi, Yoshinari, Amemiya, Ikarashi, Sushio(?), etc

Almost wish Beastars had this treatment. its cgi was, to be fair, good, but Triggers animation is so damn fun. Anyway, will give it a try.
