Season 2 Coming Out in January!
You Can Kind of Grasp the Point in Five Minutes!
Featuring “World TRIGGER”!
So we said you can ‘kind of’ grasp the point but……
Actually, I know WORLD TRIGGER only by the title and don’t know any further…… It’s one of the Shōnen Jump series, right?
Yep! Oh well then! Let’s review it together so you can kind of grasp the point in about five minutes!
What Is WORLD TRIGGER?
It’s a Manga × Battle × Action Japanese manga series, serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump from 2013 to 2018, and transferred to Jump SQUARE. It’s still being serialized and 22 volumes have been released as of June 2020.
As for an anime series, 73 episodes have aired from 2014 to 2016. Season 2 has started to air in January 2021.
I don’t know it’s classified as Season 1 but 73 episodes in Season 1 have already aired, huh? That’s awesome.
The classification of Season 1 and 2 were officially announced so I think Season 1 is correct! I’ve heard that the series transferred from a weekly magazine to a monthly one because the author was sick for a while!
Outline of WORLD TRIGGER!
The Battle of the Invaders, Neighbors, and the Defense Organization, Border!
One day in a certain era, peaceful days ended all of a sudden.
The invaders from the different world, called Neighbors, start appearing and destroying town. Humans are overwhelmed when their weapons are found out to be useless against the Neighbors.
…… Until a mysterious organization appears that is able to repel the Neighbors’ attacks.
The organization is later called “Border,” which turns into an exclusive organization to fight against the Neighbors.
Two main protagonists in this story: One is a C-rank Shooter of “Border”, Mikumo Osamu, and the other is Kuga Yuma who belongs to both “Border” and “Neighbors”!
The story is set four years after the incident which happened at the beginning. The story officially starts when Kuga Yuma transfers to a junior high school, which Mikumo Osamu goes to.
When Kuga Yuma first comes to school, he gets in a tangle with a hood. Mikumo Osamu saves him from them. Due to the incident, they get a little closer to each other and go home together after school.
On the way, they are attacked by “Neighbors.”
Mikumo Osamu fights against Neighbors as a member of “Border.” Looking at what’s going on, Kuga Yuma is a little surprised.
Mikumo Osamu is being overwhelmed by huge Neighbors.
Kuga Yuma saves him in a pinch. Yuma quickly beats up Neighbors, showing his overwhelming power.
“You’re a part of the Border too, huh?”
Kuga Yuma replies to Mikumo Osamu, looking surprised.
“I came from the other side of the gate. I’m one of the Neighbors.”
It’s quite a classic story, huh?
Yep! That’s why we can still enjoy reading it from vol.1 of manga or watching it from Episode 1 of anime! You can easily catch up with it!
Season 1 (73 episodes) covers around 1 to 14 volumes so for those who want to enjoy Season 2 fully, be sure to watch Season 1 of anime or 14 volumes of original manga, then try Season 2!
Alright now! This is all for today! We’ll see you all at the next article!
