Short-form Show; Big Time Fun
I finally found one! Space Patrol Luluco is the first Trigger show to date that I enjoyed all the way through. While this series was a short form as apposed to the usual full-length series, it was easily one of the best of the Spring 2016 season.
Luluco was funny and the story was pretty good once it actually got told. The story isn’t anything fancy but for a short form series that’s not a big issue. It’s rather simple and straight forward, just over the top in typical Trigger fashion. If anything, the story is pretty normal, which is kind of the point for anyone that’s seen it.
Granted this show did have a filler arc. That being said, it was easily my favorite. Normally, I hate filler episodes, but for Luluco I absolutely loved it. Seeing Trigger reference their other works, even dating back to some obscure Gainax titles, was hilarious and I just couldn’t stop laughing. My favorite episode was the spoof of Kill La Kill. Trust me, it’s gold.
While the show was over the top, like any Trigger production, it always felt grounded compared to their other works. Sure it was wacky and out there at times, but it never felt like the story lost track of itself and what it was trying to convey. I think this is one show that people should definitely check out, it’s a small time investment and will at worst be a fun time for almost any viewer.
