World Trigger (Japanese: ワールドトリガー, Hepburn: Wārudo Torigā), also known in short form as WorTri (Japanese: ワートリ, Hepburn: Wātori), is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Daisuke Ashihara. It was initially serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump from February 2013 to November 2018, and transferred to Jump Square in December 2018. Its chapters have been compiled by Shueisha into 25 tankōbon volumes as of September 2022. In North America, the manga has been licensed for English release by Viz Media.
An anime television series adaptation produced by Toei Animation was aired on TV Asahi from October 2014 to April 2016. A second season aired from January to April 2021, and a third season aired from October 2021 to January 2022.
In Mikado City (三門市, Mikado-shi) (280,000 inhabitants), a “gate” to a different world suddenly opens one day. Monsters called “Neighbors” (近界民ネイバー, Neibā, lit. “Near-world people”) start appearing from the gate. Humans are overwhelmed at first when their weapons are found to be useless against Neighbors, until a mysterious organization appears that is able to repel the Neighbors’ attacks. The organization is called the National Defense Agency, or “Border”, and has appropriated the Neighbor technology called “Triggers”, which allows the user to channel an internal energy called Trion and use it as a weapon or for other purposes. By activating a trigger, the body of users is replaced by a battle-body made of Trion which is stronger and more resistant.
Four years later, people in Mikado City have grown used to the occasional battles with the Neighbors, and have returned more or less to their everyday lives. Border has become popular. One day, a mysterious white-haired student named Yūma Kuga (空閑 遊真, Kuga Yūma) transfers to the local school. Kuga is actually a strong humanoid Neighbor, a fact that he wants to hide from Border. In the school he meets another student, Osamu Mikumo (三雲 修, Mikumo Osamu), who is secretly a C-rank Border trainee. Since Kuga is completely oblivious about life in Mikado City, it falls to Mikumo to guide him through it, and to prevent him from being discovered by Border.
