After successfully holding off the invasion by Aftokrator, the Border Defense Agency prepares an away mission into the Neighbor's dimension. However, like in previous scouting expeditions, only A-rank teams are certain to secure a spot. As the B-rank wars continue, Osamu Mikumo and the rest of Tamakoma-2 quickly fight to the top in an attempt to obtain a promotion before the operation begins.

Meanwhile, a new Neighbor ship approaches Border Headquarters. Noticing that the attackers are targeting the Border Expedition Ship, forces are hastily sent to combat them. However, with fewer squads available due to the proceeding rank wars, the organization is sent into disarray. This latest offensive from the Neighbors shrouds the fate of the all-important expedition ship in uncertainty.

There is NOTHING like this.

While the studio butchered the animation on the first season, they did this season GOOD! I must admit that my score IS biased but my review is NOT. So please allow me to tell you why there is nothing like this show and if it's for you.

Why there is nothing like this show? I also have no clue, BUT, what is this show in the first place? Not the synopsis, not the FAQs or setting, but what makes it unique. The answer is, TACTICS.

I have never seen an anime that even comes close to how this title showcases tactics. You read more

What a beautiful return of an extremely initially flawed series. Here we see World Trigger season 2 come back with a much more compact enjoyable series of episodes giving a lot of payoff to many of the cliffhangers that were left in season 1. It's sad to see most people ignore this anime due to its flat first season but I would recommend you give it a chance, especially if you at all like the first season.

World Trigger is BACK and honestly better than ever. If you watched and enjoyed season one, you will probably get some form of enjoyment out of this one.
(Edited now that I've completed it) TLDR: This season is near perfect and is better than the original in every technical aspect, well worth a watch.

ART: I'm so grateful that World Trigger is being adapted into a proper 13 episode season instead of a 73 episode long running anime again, this allows for the plot to come at a steadier pace and the biggest improvement so far is quite noticeably the animation, it's a lottt smoother and read more
