Trigger has launched a "luluco.tv" website for the new series that features the date April 1, 2016, and also features a countdown that will end in 30 days.
The website notes that the work will commemorate five years since Trigger was established. Tigger's five-year anniversary will be in August.

The first season included Miss Monochrome - The Animation- 2, Wakaba Girl, and Wooser no Sono Higurashi Mugen-hen. The second season premiered in October and featured Hacka Doll the Animation, Miss Monochrome - The Animation- 3, and Kagewani.
The third season of the programming block will premiere on January 8 and will include Sekkō Boys and Oshiete! Galko-chan. The third slot in the block will feature the three following four-episode series: Tabi Machi Late Show, Kono Danshi, Mahō ga Oshigoto Desu., and Kanojo to Kanojo no Neko: Everything Flows.
