Trigger has a habit of picking artists with a lot of adult work on their resumes for the anime studio's monthly art. It's October. It's Halloween. So they went for someone who does a lot of work with not-exactly human girls. Slime girls. Sheep girls, and especially horse girls (you might remember their life-sized centaur hug pillow). They're what are in Z-ton's wheelhouse. But, they kept things mostly human for Trigger-chan, Muzzle and Spring.
After a history of tapping ero-manga artists for their monthly studio site art, for September, Trigger gave the nod to Toshiyuki Satou, an animator how has worked with the group on Gurren Lagann, Panty & Stocking, and Luluco.
