World Trigger Synopsis
When the door to another world suddenly opens on Earth, Mikado’s city is invaded by strange creatures known as “Neighbors,” who are malicious beings with traditional weaponry.
In response to this invasion, an organization known as the Border Defense Agency engages the Neighbors using weapons known as the “Triggers.” Even several years after the battle began, the Neighbors remain a threat, and the Agency members remain alert.
Despite this delicate situation, members-in-training, such as Osamu Mikumo, cannot use their Triggers outside of headquarters.
But when a mysterious student in his class is dragged into a forbidden area by bullies, the Neighbors launch an attack, and Osamu has no choice but to do what he thinks is right. To their surprise, transfer student Yuuma Kuga quickly takes care of them, revealing that he is a Neighbor in disguise.
