Trigger and Tsuburya are collaborating on a anime version of Gridman! Trigger did a short a film a few years ago that's awesome...

And they're using both 'SSSS' and 'Gridman,' maybe to also appeal to the places where the Americanization aired?

Damn, that is too bad. He would have probably done it, too :(

I hear a lot of mixed things about Trigger, but I get the sense it's the internet being the internet. What series have they worked on?

They're best known for "Kill la Kill" and "Little Witch Academia". I haven't seen either of them, but the former attracted a lot of praise when it came out.

I liked the Gridman short they made, so I'm looking forward to seeing a new series from them. The show's concept is probably easier to work with now than it was 20 years ago, given the ubiquity of electronics and computerization. Looking forward to a ransomware kaiju.

The animation looks absolutely beautiful I love this! For years I was kind of hoping theyd do a *Gridman* cameo in one of the Ultra Galaxy films, but this is awesome, cant wait to see it finished.
There are no more good TV Shows, only ones that haven't disappointed me yet.

Kill la Kill, Little Witch Academia, and maybe Inferno Cop are their most notable works so far, but they have a nice variety of projects. Here's an English site for the studio (albeit dated), plus a fuller list of their work, courtesy of MyAnimeList.
...And an official YouTube page(?)

Honestly, I think Trigger is one of the Studios really worth paying attention to right now. When Gainax split, a lot of their significant staff went to to form Trigger. The manic, eccentric energy you see in titles like FLCL and Gurren Lagann are essentially the life blood of many of their works - Kill la Kill shares GL's core creative team, and could totally be considered its spiritual successor - but it's not their sole defining feature. From what I've heard, the general atmosphere of the studio is very friendly and encouraging for its staff and their creativity, and nearly all their shows so far have been stand-outs in one way or another - art style, character designs, sound & music, action, humor, etc. They're a small, but seemingly very healthy studio.

...So, yeah, Trigger doing a hero/kaiju show is reason for excitement, imo.

Looks pretty cool!
Was a fan of Superhero Syber Samurai Squad, and had several of the toys.
Hopefully this comes to the USA, and I can check it out!

I wish Ultraman had used this style of animation :(

I am intrigued to see how the motion capture for the fight scenes work for the Ultraman anime. The Ultraman manga is so different from the Ultraman universe that I am probably more interested in the Gridman anime but both series are a little too "high school" character focused to get me really excited, but i guess that comes with the anime territory

So the "SSSS" does stand for "Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad"!: http://www.scifijapan.com/articles/2018 ... uraya-pro/

^ I can't remember if the 'SSSS' acronym was ever used for the show back in the day, in merchandise or whatever.

Can we call this Gridmanime? - Then we could refer to the new Ultra series as Ultramanime to delineate it from the 66 show...

Then maybe Gridmanimation/Ultramanimation instead?
