YMMV / Studio Trigger

  • Friendly Fandoms: There's a very good chance that a fan of Trigger productions has also seen a Gainax anime, especially if it's Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann or Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: The studio is incredibly popular outside of its native Japan, where it has only modest numbers, especially in the west. English-speaking imageboards tend to treat the studio as the saviour of anime and anything they produce becomes an instant cult classic. It can best be seen in their work Little Witch Academia, where in Japan the studio had to cancel a fan meet and greet because not enough tickets sold, while its Kickstarter for a second episode made well over its goal and earned over half a million dollars.
  • Memetic Badass: At least one character from each of their shows will be referred to as "The Savior of Anime". Inferno Cop remains the reigning king of this title, though.
  • Memetic Mutation: "Based Trigger" is a popular nickname for the studio on various imageboards and other anime communities on the internet.
  • Production Posse: With Sanzigen Animation Studio; helps that they reside in the same building. Triple A and Wish too, depending on the project.
  • Promoted Fanboy: Given that the studio is founded by ex-Gainax members, this is to be expected.
