Similar in many ways: Hollow = Trion Soldiers Arrancar = Neighbor Seireitei = Border The only major difference is Bleach have only 1 protagonist(Ichigo) while World Trigger have 2 protagonists(Yuma and Osamu/dual protagonist sort of thing)

Both of those anime are about a Gate which suddenly appeared in Japan, and monsters came out of it. In both of them the monsters are pushed back and even the people go to the other world to fight and investigate

Lets be honest here. Basically World Trigger is like the Sci-Fi version of AoT. In both a Town is constantly threatened by an "titanic" unknown force of which they have little knowledge about. Also in both Anime there exist a Military defense force that fights against these enemies with advanced technologie. These defense forces go to away missions to explore the area of the enemy. We have strong MC's and also Trainees. All in all World Trigger is the more child friendly Sci-Fi version of Attack on Titan.

The same situation where people with extra ordinary abilities whose weaponry also came from alien tech, where they use it to battle beings or creatures from another world.

There are several things these shows have in common, namely: 1. Both shows are about humans being under siege, in OnS it's by vampires, and in WT it's by "Neighbours". In OnS most of humanity has been wiped out, but in WT it's never really made clear if the damage only applies to that specific area in the world or if there are other places. 2. Both shows feature main "companies" that were created to defeat these enemies: OnS: Moon Demon Company - WT: Border 3. Both shows have similar enemies, that also are similar in power/strength: Weaker ones: OnS: 4 Horsemen of John - WT: Trion Soldiers Strong ones: OnS: Noble  read more

Boku no Hero Academy S2 and World Trigger: Both have a arc dedicated to demonstrating their abilities, which will use it to fulfill their goals, in a competition, where they fight against their allies, until they get that satisfaction of being part of a force majeure, and protect people by themselves, either together or separately. Unlike BnH, World Trigger skills are not that much of a difference, but like BnH, there are some with particularities, powers or abilities that make them different from the rest. The main protagonists are partly similar: Okumo (WT) and Deku (BnH): They possess their notorious weaknesses, but struggle every day to be stronger. Chika (WT)  read more

Both of these series have 'Humanoid' beings that are fought against. Beyond that there are a few similar characters and organizations. Yuuma and Killua are actually quite alike. If you liked one of them, it's not hard to like the other. They both come from violent backgrounds, and have bodies that would exceed human (And otherwise) norms because of the past they lived. The main characters from both series belong to an organization that fights (Generally) for the protection of others. They are both large, and prominent organizations that hold many similarities. Both of these series have four main characters, even if it doesn't always  read more

Well I guess I've only seen 1 ep of Qualidea Code, but so far it has lots of similarities to World Trigger. The main characters of World Trigger are more sympathetic, and there are a lot more characters in general, but otherwise superpowers, alien invaders etc the same.

We all have an idol, that someone who pushes us to overcome our weaknesses, like these protagonists, who want to learn. At his side, a veteran, who supported him from the front or back, a cheerful girl with great potential, a boy with inherited abilities with wounds without being erased. Two series where there are unique abilities, powerful rivals, lifelong partners fighting for the same goal and opponents who hide in the shadows.

A lot of characters, powers and the ninjas organize themselves in a similar way than the Border

Both have to do with organizations fighting otherworldly? beings and one of the otherworldly beings in on the human side and kinda op

Both series have universal weapons which every character can and does use. Triggers for WT and bombs for Btooom. Each individual could win in a battle and the winner depends on who has the better tactics.

The stories both revolve around highschool students wich follow the goal of protecting humanity and their loved ones from the antagonists of each series. While they have some in common they do have some in uncommon, like the love story between Shinichi and his girl, a love story that isn't in WorTri but a story of Osamu doing all he can to protect Chika wich is like a little sister to him.

In both anime people awaken a power and make special weapons to help them fight inter-dimensional beings and save the world from them. The main characters form a team to hunt more efficiently the inter-dimensional beings.

-Both anime has concept of multiple Earths/worlds and sci-fi based. -Enemy from different Earth comes to this Earth and people fights it. In World Trigger,it's people in Border Defense fights with a special weapon called "trigger." In Bokurano,it's 15 kids fights with a huge robot called "Zearth"

OP MC's Large organisation with ranks S,A,B,C Main goal for the MC's is to reach the top rank. Lots of combat mixed with a fair share of comedy.

Interesting shows in a futuristic setting, both have characters that use guns and fight with each other. They also have a militaristic system of rankings set in a school. Lots of action and sci-fi elements present in both. 
report Recommended by BaptizED
The art styles slightly remind me of each other, but probably what does so more are the highly unique/eccentric characters. From a loli that wants to conquer the world to a super smug sci-fi kid.

Both anime have these 'space quakes' in which beings from another dimension seem to appear from. The cities where these quakes have adapted to them happening and people otherwise live their same old lives since before they started happening, though people do have to evacuate every time they happen. Oh, and some really weird people tend to come from that other dimension.

Yuuma is just like the main hero from Regios: come to inferior world and possess insanely strong abilities. Both charas also battles in groups. 
report Recommended by coeus
Yuuki Yuuna and Kuga Yuuma has a similar attack pattern such as demonic hyper ultra punch, that can bring down one monster in one punch... Yuuki Yuuna and Kuga Yuuma cares for her/his best comerades both share the same justice role and save people from some creature both transform before fighting, and still unmasked even transformed (lol) I just hope for some male characters appear in Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru, then it would be compared~

- Aiko Tachibana = Chika Amatori Both can sense and attract the "monsters" - Akiko Nanbara = Kido Masamune Same role and even the exact same table pose(A.I.C.O Opening) - Yuuya Kanzaki = Yuuma Kuga Both protagonists are someone special - Burst = Invasion - Gates (but WT is dimensional) - Malignant = Neighbor (sorta) - Diver = Border Agent

the personality of mc in this two anime is similar. They have strategic skill and make effort from zero without some instant power-ups. 
report Recommended by megmica
Kuga (WT) and Ibiki (Chaos Dragon) looks very similar. However they act as opposites, their goal is pretty much the same. Also, both anime's start off as light-Cute-Funny anime's. However, early on through the anime it begins to turn 'Dark'. Instead of your happy-cute-fun Anime, we have a hint that the anime isn't exactly all Fun & Games, and we begin to see the true colors of World Trigger. Both MC's seek for revenge, for a fallen loved one.

Both of them are similar because in both animes there are monsters who came into the human's world and start attacking. In both of them the humanity strikes back and defends itself. In both of them there's something unnatural which can defeat the monsters (in world trigger it's Trion, in Black Bullet it's the cursed children).

Both series have creatures who come from another dimension that terrorizes the human race. Both series have a group of individuals who come to defend the people from these monsters. Both Main characters are very gifted and powerful however they are laid back and lazy, only fighting when it is necessary. Both Narratives have Action, school, supernatrual, comedy, and Fantasy genre components.

These two are about teenagers that have some kind of power/weappons to defeat a huge crisis in the world, caused by some kind of monsters. For power-up they say a similar quote, "trigger on"(World Trigger) and "Hundred-on"(Hundred).
