Set it to - Unit starts the effect of an ability.

Your animation probably won't loop because your ability Kishin already has an animation that is played AFTER the trigger you are using occurs.

remove the Attack 1 animation and leave the others

if you want to add an animation when a spell is casted go into

Object Editor - Abilities - Spell you want , and on the first line you see there add the animation attack 1 ;) this will play animation + sound + animation speed
