Okay, okay… World Trigger finally arrives. I heard that the manga is pretty good and I was also told that it was rather similar to the Naruto series in terms of comedy. I did not like to hear that. There is no place for comedy when characters are fighting seriously for dear life.
Anyway, the artwork is definitely not bad. How could it? Toei Animation always goes over the top and they are also pretty fanatic, if I am to believe the rumours, when it comes to details. A job well done there if you ask me.
I think the story is somewhat lacking, you know? We meet this guy, Osamu, who’s secretly a member of that mysterious organisation and he suspects the new kid, Yuuma, of being a member, too. Why would he need to suspect that? Doesn’t he know his colleagues? A few things just don’t make sense right now.
This is one of those shows that you need to check out for yourself. Right now I could really recommend it because I’m not very excited about it. It doesn’t seem like anything special, so just check out the first episode and decide for yourself.
Plot Summary: One day a gate to another world opened in Mikado City. This entities of the other world, called Neighbors, sent out an invasion force that overran the area surrounding the gate. Given the technological superiority of the Neighbors, the destruction of the city seemed only a matter of time. But then suddenly Border appeared in the town, an organization that researches the technology of the Neighbors to protect this side of the gate. In a short time they built a huge base and became established as the line of defense against the Neighbors. One day a student named Yūma transfers to the same middle-school class as Osamu, a teenager who belongs to Border. He has a weapon called Trigger that is only allowed to be possessed by people in Border, and claims to have come from beyond the gate.
