World Trigger Reviews

World Trigger took several volumes to develop on me, but Shonen Jump eventually has its Naruto and Bleach successor (meaning these are formally permitted to FINISH!). Ever want a shonen manga created the "underdog that has to train hard and really struggle for his/her victory" character the hero as opposed to the "brash genius" or the "I win because I've got the most hit points" varieties? This is it.

The scheme: alien invaders keep attacking Earth, handily targeting the exact same area over and over, while still another, more beneficent alien and a specific taskforce save. Wait, is not that Ultraman? The bug-like "Neighbors" are after our vitality called "Trion," that will be World Trigger's manner of declaring "power level" or "chakra." "BORDER" representatives fight back using specific Trion-powered apparatus known as "Triggers" (no cautions supplied) that confer various attacks and capabilities.

Bespectacled Osamu Mikumo is a low ranking BOUNDARY representative who makes friends using the diminutive Yuma Kuga, a know it all humanoid Neighbor with enormous power. Ashihara initially thought Kuga to function as hero, but shrewdly recognized Mikumo was more intriguing.

However, we begin learning concerning the factions within BOUNDARY as the Neighbors ramp-up their attempts and once the actual story starts, the forged becomes not so small that both Kuga and Mikumo simply take a backseat. As World Trigger stresses team strategies, placement, intersquad competitions, and ascending the ranks while its town Ashihara certainly wished to compose sports manga -smashing conflicts commence.

That is half of what makes World Trigger excellent. Another half is the fact that one's human anatomy is replaced by Trigger activation with a Trion human anatomy that seems exactly like you as if you, albeit with a snazzy outfit. These Trion bodies mutilated and may be dismembered by bullets and blades despite no blood expiring, enabling fights to be WAY mo-Re brutal than ever before, without cast members!
