Recently I’ve felt like something’s been missing from my life, and I just pinned down exactly what it is: an anime series by the creative team behind Gurren Lagann and Kill la Kill.
But the Studio Trigger gods have smiled upon me, as details were revealed today about director Hiroyuki Imaishi and crew’s next anime series, set to air in April.
The series is titled Uchu Patrol Luluco (Space Patrol Luluco), and will begin airing on April 1. It’s directed by Imaishi at Studio Trigger and many talents from Kill la Kill, including Hiromi Wakabayashi (creative director), Yoh Yoshinari (effects artist) and Akira Amemiya (second director).
One notable absence: Kazuki Nakashima, who did the series composition for Gurren Lagann and Kill la Kill.
Space Patrol Luluco concerns female middle school student Luluco, who lives in a “special immigration ward” of space called Ogikubo (named after the Tokyo suburb?) who meets and falls for a transfer student named ΑΩ Nova.
Crunchyroll will stream the series starting April 1.
