Founded in 2011, Studio Trigger (トリガー) is a studio founded by Hiroyuki Imaishi, other Ex-Gainax staff members who had worked on Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann and Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, and Ex-Studio 4°C staff members who were stationed between Telecom, Gainax, and KyoAni at the time of its founding. Trigger is a studio that is getting a lot of praise in the animation industry because of its production methods.

Their second in-house anime production, Kill la Kill, was announced in the June 2013 issue of Newtype Magazine, with Gurren Lagann's director and lead character designer on board. The same year, they created the short Little Witch Academia for Japan’s Young Animator Training Project, which they later adapted into a full series in 2017. Another original project, Kiznaiver, was announced in October 2015 and premiered on April 9, 2016. On February 7, 2016, they announced another original project, Space Patrol Luluco; both aired as a part of the Spring 2016 Anime season.


In July 7 2018, Trigger launched their own Patreon.
