▍About World Trigger
World Trigger is a manga series created by Daisuke Ashihara, also shortened as WorTri. The series was originally serialized as part of weekly shonen jump, before transitioning to Jump Square on December 4, 2018, where the series is still ongoing. The series received numerous adaptations, including an anime series running for 3 seasons with 99 episodes, and multiple games.
The series is centered in the fictional Mikado City. One day a “gate” to a different world opens out of thin air, and monsters started flooding out of the gates. These monsters were dubbed Neighbors by the populace, and at first, humanity was completely overwhelmed by this dominant threat until a mysterious organization appeared and repelled the neighbors.
The organization, known as Border had been appropriating the Neighbor’s technology to allow humans to channel an energy called Trion, which they can use to grant special powers and super-human traits. This technology was dubbed Triggers and became essential to fighting the Neighbors.
Years have passed and battles with Neighbors have become commonplace as the rest of the world continues as normal. One day a white-haired student named Yuma Kuga appears in a local high school, and despite how he looks he’s completely oblivious to life in the city, and he befriends a C-class border trainee called Osamu Mikumo. The two hit it off quickly, and Mikumo finds out that Kuga is a humanoid Neighbor. Not wanting to let his friend get discovered by Border, the Mikumo continues his training while guiding Yuma through life.
