Synopsis

Earth is under constant threat from Neighbors, invincible monsters from another dimension that destroy our way of life. At least we have the elite warriors of Border, who co-opt alien technology to fight back! Our hero Osamu Mikumo may not be the best agent, but he'll do whatever it takes to defend life on Earth as we know it. When Osamu meets a feisty humanoid Neighbor named Yuma, everything that he thinks is right is turned on its head. Can the two natural enemies ever become friends?

World Trigger... This is one manga that is extremely underrated and needs more followers. With the end of the longest arc, I can see just how much talent Ashihara has.

Story (may include spoilers, read at own risk):
World Trigger starts off as your normal "aliens invading Earth" story, but proves it self not to be. However, as we learn about the invaders (called Neighbors), we learn that they're so much more, and with the revelation of several Neighbor worlds, a story is set up since our protagonists are going to face it. While it goes into softer parts, especially during training, when the protagonists go to read more

Honestly I had low expectations when I first started. But as I read each chapter, I was looking forward to the next chapter so much! Very underrated manga I'd say. This is my first review so I hope I do good!

Edit: I wanted to add some more so…

The plot and the story is amazing! It first starts off as those "invasion from another race" thing but as it progresses, you'd realize that WT executes the the theme really well. Also I found that the mangaka foreshadows things a lot which makes you want to know more! It was 121 chapter so far but read more

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

"Extremely underrated" this is what I have seen all too often from most of my friends and various reviewers on MAL, so I'd told myself I'd give it a try. Quite frankly, someone has to take the bad role here, and I'm expecting a fair amount of hate for this review, but no matter, I'll stay as impartial and clear as possible.


Story: 5
I'll get straight to the point, it's bland, basic, cardboard cut, whatever you want to call it. The story in itself had potential, however, it's so awfully generic that I really can't get myself to enjoy it while reading. I've always read more
