UPCOMING NEW SEASON
Three stills of the upcoming season have been unveiled by the official Twitter account for the series. The anime will air on TV Asahi‘s NUMAnimation programming block.
The second season of the anime premiered on January 9. The second season will air for one cour (one quarter of a year). Crunchyroll is streaming the anime as it airs in Japan.
Based on Daisuke Ashihara’s manga of the same name, World Trigger takes place in a world where humanity battles otherworldly invaders known as “Neighbors” that attacked Mikado City.
Four years after a mysterious agency called Border helped humans fight back, Mikado City is largely back to normal. A young student named Yuma Kuga has just transferred to a school in Mikado City where he unwittingly enlists Border trainee, Osamu Mikumo, to help him hide the fact that he is actually a Neighbor.
The third season will feature a returning cast:
- Tomo Muranaka as Yūma Kuga
- Yuuki Kaji as Osamu Mikumo
- Nao Tamura as Chika Amator
- Yūichi Nakamura as Yūichi Jin
- Nobunaga Shimazaki as Hyuse
The TV anime series first aired from October 2014 to April 2016. “Season 2” began in January 2021 and concluded on April 4 with the series’ 85th episode.
Daisuke Ashihara debuted the World Trigger manga in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 2013. The manga went on hiatus in November 2016 due to Ashihara’s poor physical health and returned to the magazine in October 2018 for five issues before moving to Shueisha’s Jump SQ. magazine in December 2018.
