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.

Rough Translation: Thanks very much for watching our [Space Patrol] Luluco marathon! We were finally able to celebrate our fifth anniversary with a surprise stream of the Trigger-chan short! THe video features a new theme by Luluco ED composer Teddyloid!
