Based on a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Daisuke Ashihara, ‘World Trigger’ or ‘Wārudo Torigā’ is a science fiction TV anime about heroic adolescents and otherworldly monsters. One day, a rift to an alien world emerges, and colossal creatures, which will later be known as “Neighbors,” infiltrate Earth. After overcoming the initial shock, humanity beats the Neighbors back with the help of an enigmatic organization known as the National Defense Agency, or “Border.” It has access to Neighbor technology since acquiring the weapons called “Triggers” from them. The Triggers are only weapons that seem to work against the Neighbors. They function by utilizing a certain type of internal energy known as Trion.
