Excited for all the projects.

Darling in the Frankxx might have the most interesting premise.

Gridman might turn to be a bit meme from the director being inferno cop director

Promare is going to have the craziest visuals

Rumbles the drums, explosions and crazy things come around. Anxious! And while some Haters say nonsense, the score of previous shows belies their fallacy by showing the acceptance of the studio works.

For the three stuff announced:

1. The collab between Trigger and A-1 Pictures is quite interesting. Oh yeah, will see for the staff and look into this, but it seems pretty nice, more so on the collab's stance or end.

2. This looks like something I'll enjoy, since it seems like my cup of tea. Funny or ironically enough, I finished Inferno Cop today (it was alright to good). Will go and see on this.

3. The Promare one looks very good, especially with the staff members working here. And saying that it will probably look like Kill la Kill / Gurren Lagann makes me feel super excited since I like both of them.

Promare might be 2.5D/3DCG animation by the looks of its key visual but even if that is the case Imaishi can do some awesome 3DCG fight scenes looking at Black Rock Shooter TV that he is involve with too

Kill la Kill and Little Witch Academia are probably the only Trigger shows so far that I legitimately like, lets see if any of these will make that list. I'll be sure to really keep an eye on Promare, especially if it's tone is similar to TTGL's, which I love to death.
"Ousama Game was a mistake." UPDATE: "Mahou Shoujo Site was, somehow, an even bigger mistake."

-Me, and probably every single person who watched those shows.

All I need to see is "Studio Trigger" to get hyped. I think Promare interests me the most of the three, though Darling in the Frankxx could be great (especially with the A-1 Productions team-up).

Man, how can you like A-1 Pictures?

Watch this, please:


Anyway, I'm kinda hoping all projects would be awesome. I kinda trust in Trigger originals, so... Let's see what we'll get. XD

Just because a studio makes some bad shows doesn't mean much. A-1 also produced Shinsekai Yori which is highly rated and one of my favorite series. Also not everyone cares about watching something with an intricate plot.

Really wish people would form their own opinions about shows instead of just regurgitating digibro's.

Digibro is a man that likes "cute girls doing cute things". Don't take advice from him.

The XFLAG one probably doesn't mean much to the anime 'cause, as far as I know, that is only a mobile game company, so it's probably to make a cross media effort.

The Tsuburaya one is because is an anime based on a tokusatsu made by them, so the involvement makes sense and it can be really tangential.

Now the one with A-1 Pictures is the one who really is a co-production between two animation studios so we have to wait and see.

Well, I just have seen through the easiest way to convey my message. It doesn't mean I don't have my own opinion. I really disagree with many things he says, but in this video he seems totally right to me. And oh yeah, I just think A-1 is an unreliable studio... You should check out who is in charge and prey for their mental state don't get too damaged by stress... I'll post other videos of other guys just for the sake of information.



But I admit that there's a lot more behind it, like that is told there:

Hey, man, it's personal taste. How can you judge it? At least he can argue through that... And... Well... I guess everyone has that unlikeable tasting to others...

I'm not saying he's not wrong about A-1, you were just making it seem like this show was guaranteed to be bad because it's colab with A-1.

>not a good sign

Looks like they are adopting the same tactics from Gainax days. NGE was co-produced with Tatsunoko Production, EoE and FLCL with Production IG, Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou with JC Staff, early 2000s a couple work with SHAFT.

Stop making up things like co-producing = bad. Especially when 99% of the industry outsources anyways.

Would have been highly excited for Promare if this was 2010, but after the disappointing mixed bag that is Kill la Kill, I can't help but be highly skeptical of another Imaishi and Nakashima production. Hopefully, Gurren Lagann doesn't turn out to be their only great series.

Excited. Hopefully it will be better than the mess that was little witch academia and kiznaiver, tho. Still its bound to have unique and creative animation and designs and that is something anime industry really needs.

Co-producing is not outsourcing.
It lowers their profit since they have to share with even more producers than the regular amount.
Trigger was shilling LWA hard too, practically begging people to support it if they want more.

The one from the list I'm most excited about is Promare. Seems like a potentially exciting show and considering they spent 4 years producing it, I do expect something of higher quality than the other two projects.

I'm hoping they reveal the PV for Darling in the Frankxx soon.

Well it's Trigger ... let's see if they can make an above-average anime again. It's already been some time since the last one (Kill La Kill). Funny that no one said "Trigger saves anime" yet. :D (Maybe people realized that the studio is not that great.)

I might check out the shows. Depends on the plot to be expected. (Waiting for more infos and description in the future.) But I have very low expectations.

Heard Gridman was related to some Tonkusatsu show. So it might be targeted only at a special audience that likes that stuff. (I think such stuff is boring.)

The other 2 could get interesting. (A1 involved for the one and people that worked on Kill La Kill for the other.)

When Trigger announced they were going to reveal multiple projects at AX, I was hoping and praying for a new Imaishi x Nakashima joint since TTGL and KLK are both masterpieces imo... and here we are with Promare!

It's got a lot to live up to.

I love Trigger, this is extremely exciting news!! I adored LWA which just ended.

Most excited for Promare since I loved Gurren Lagann, Kill La Kill, Luluco.. Basically every show Imaishi directed.

It's nice. Reminds me of Gainax last days of glory...

The only part in the announcement that sounds bad is the "we're doing a new original project who'll be like X thing we did before". This sounds more like the kind of thing "desperate" people would say instead of trying something different from before. Imagine if Gainax had decided they should only make Eva-like shows after 1997.

edit: by the way, Gainax will also exploit a western convention to promote a new anime project (and seek investors). In a few weeks at Paris.

"shilling" you sound like one of those edgy teens who can't understand how business works. sure, they should just make an anime every 10 years and starve to death so they can keep their "artistic integrity" in front of some self entitled millenial.

And AnoHana, So ra Wo to, Tsuritama... It seems there are few "good titles" among the cheap ones, so I still can't live up my expectations...

But yeah, I need to watch these yet...

About Trigger, yeah, it's a matter of tastes, but I genuinely like and enjoy Trigger original works that follows their Gainax ex-staff steps... They show to the industry some inconvenient truth with passion and intensity. It's what I love most about them.

3 original anime and you only see co-production. Pathetic.
