If you tell me something's from Studio Trigger, you can be sure I'm at least going to check it out because they've built up quite a bit of cred with me. I didn't do any prior research, so I was surprised to find out that the format involved seven-minute episodes, but you'd be surprised how much gets packed into so little time. It's a very rapid-fire show (pretty much required given the runtime) loaded to the gills with Trigger fanservice. If you're a fan of the studio and its works, there's a lot to enjoy here and it's a fitting celebration of Trigger's fifth anniversary. Though it's quite short, the experience is rather satisfying and is definitely worth checking out. Trigger fans will want this one in their collection.
