World Trigger Season 2 Episode 7 Spoilers
In episode 6, Tamakoma 2 effectively introduces their sniper into the game. Chika fires her cannon not to score but to flush the other two teams out. And the plan works. Both Kakizaki and Katori Units realize that the sniper poses an immediate danger, and they have to take her out. That means that they have to venture into the area where Yūma Kuga and Osamu Mikumo are waiting for them. Kakizaki and Katori simultaneously decide that they need to collaborate to defeat the immense power that Tamakoma 2 possesses.
Kakizaki and Katori Units attack different sections of Tamakoma 2’s stronghold, seemingly forcing Yūma and Osamu to engage their enemies separately. The plan seems to work initially, as Yūma takes on Kakizaki Unit and Osamu fights Katori Unit. But Tamakoma 2 seems to have been anticipating this. With Chika’s help, Yūma neutralizes Kotarō. Believing that they have an easier target in Osamu, Katori Unit aggressively pursues him through the wired zones. When Osamu fires vibrant red spiders, Katori ends up tripping over a camouflaged wire. Chika fires a lead bullet, trapping her leg. Katori has no choice but to cut it off and temporarily retreat with Miura.
Kakizaki lets Teruya go directly after Chika while he fights Yūma. The Kakizaki Unit captain is at a serious disadvantage with one of his arms missing. Realizing that he is going to lose the fight, Kakizaki grabs Yūma as the latter impales him. As Kakizaki’s trion body begins to disintegrate, he shoots Yūma at point-blank range, declaring that he doesn’t intend to lose at all. In episode 7, it might be revealed whether Yūma stays in the game or is forced to bail out.
