With the upcoming adaptation it’s high time this series got at least one review on MAL. Let me say it straight from the start: at this moment (ch. 55) it’s an OK battle shounen, that many readers will find entertaining, though I can’t shake off the feeling that it’s a bit tryhard. WT works diligently on being a good action series for teens but rarely strives for more and doesn’t show many moments of brilliance. However the potential of the series is great and it can develop into something more profound in future.

I’ll start with the art, since it will be the obvious dealbreaker read more

With special abilities/technology, Tokyo ESP and World Trigger chronicle the events of characters with such gifts. Although their premises are different, their respective stories explore elements of otherwordly events. Both series' main characters face challenges that puts their lives at risk. Recommended for fans of super power/shounen.
World Trigger gives me very strong FMA vibes, especially with the government and its place in the story.
They may have very different settings, Naruto is about ninjas with limited technology compared to modern times while World Trigger is science fiction, but their stories and characters are quite similar.

The main characters consist of two boys, one girl, and one more experienced mentor figure. The protagonist is a boy who is considered to not have much skill. The other boy is quite skilled and the target of much discussion. The girl is where things differ a bit with Chika in World Trigger being a bit of target for the villains like how Sasuke is in Naruto. Still, both her and Sakura have a hugely explosive amount of strength that they display when not being protected. Jin and Kakashi are both strong and likable mentors and some of the best characters in both stories. They seem upbeat and carefree much of the time but can get very serious when need be. They are part of an organization that fights against other worlds/villages and evil organizations which plan to destroy them and use their power for themselves. There is a large focus placed not only on the main characters, but also all of the other members of the organization. On top of that, the ranking system of organization members resemble each other (A, B, and C ranks in World Trigger and Jounin, Genin, etc. in Naruto). There are regular tournaments used for members to get to higher ranks and the main characters and other characters strive to become better and climb the ranks in order to achieve their goals.
Although both series follow different premises, Railgun and World Trigger share a variety of similarities as modern sci-fi/fantasy stories. The main characters from both series are helpful to those in need and possesses great skill in their abilities. Their relationship with other characters are also defined and focused over the course of both series. When conflict arises, both series adapts battles with superhuman feats. Both series also make room for comedy with ways to define their colorful cast of characters.
Although they employ different premises, both series adapts a cast of characters who are able to perform superhuman feats. Both series takes place in an alternate world with abnormal technology. The main male character from both series often tries to help others especially involving his friends and allies. Both series has decent action with dark secrets that are unraveled throughout the course of their perspective stories. Recommended for fans of supernatural/sci-fi action.
They may not seem alike at first but Yozakura Quartet and World Trigger shares a number of similarities when taken from a modern fantasy/action point of view. Both series revolves around a group of characters with abilities in a place where people should expect the unexpected. There is mysteries regarding events that occur in the settings of both series as well that are explored. With a balance of lighthearted comedy and action, Yozakura Quartet and World Trigger are two series I'd recommend to anyone interested in some modern fantasy/supernatural battles.
