VitaShell Theme : Akatsuki

Akatsuki theme header

(download link below)

Inspired by the red clouds, alwyas prominent on the Akatsuki’s (Naruto anime) garb, this theme is a fork of Electron, adorned with a darker tone.

Update 31/08/2018 : Theme updated to accommodate the new settings entry in VitaShell 1.95. Enjoy !


Red and black go together really well, and I had this idea for a red and black VitaShell theme for a while, then I remembered the actual evil organization wearing the same colors, so I just borrowed the cloud and name and designed the theme on top of Electron. That’s how it was born.

This theme was 90% done last year, I just could not finish it and release it in time due to some special circumstances. Anyway, now it is ready, please enjoy.
