Has it been five years already? Man, how time flies!
Over the weekend, NicoNico streamed a marathon of Trigger’s Space Patrol Luluco anime series. The showing ended with a brand-new short from the studio.
The 30-second video, which celebrates the company’s 5th anniversary, features company mascots Trigger, Muzzle, and Spring. Trigger later took to Twitter to confirm that Teddyloid composed the music for the piece.
