Preview: World Trigger Season 2 Episode 2

Produced by Toei Animation, ‘World Trigger’ or ‘Wārudo Torigā’ is a science fiction Shonen anime with grand concepts, interesting characters, and an engaging plotline. The story is mostly set in the fictional Mikado City, where one day suddenly, an interdimensional rift opens up. From it, monsters called Neighbors start pouring in. Initially, humans have no idea how to fight this alien adversary as their weapons prove to be ineffective against the enemy. At that darkest hour, a beacon of light appears in the form of a clandestine organization called the National Defense Agency, or “Border.” They have acquired the Neighbor technology and start using weapons known as the Triggers, with which they pushed the Neighbors back.

The story centers around Osamu Mikumo, a high-school student who is currently training to be a Border operative. One day, a white-haired boy named Yūma Kuga joins Osamu’s school. Yūma saves Osamu and some other boys from his school from a Neighbor monster, and Osamu discovers that this strange boy is actually a humanoid Neighbor. Now, Osamu must try his best to keep his new friend safe from Border. The anime originally premiered on October 5, 2014. The first season concluded on April 3, 2016.
