One year after moving to Jump Square, World Trigger begins a new animated saga.
I am thankful to receive such good news as 2019 comes to a close.

Next year, I will continue to work hard without overextending myself. Your continued support is appreciated very much.

Wow, A chance to meet all of you again!
The new series is going to be even better than the last one. I will hold the “trigger” and be all fired up!

Now I should eat chicken curry and rice.

Yuki Kaji (Osamu Mikumo)

I am very glad to have the chance to watch the World Trigger animation and to play the role of Osamu again!

Be sure to rewatch the first series and get ready for the next. Look forward to it!

Trigger started!

Nao Tamura (Chika Amatori)

I am very happy to have the chance to reprise the role of Chika.

I hope everyone is looking forward to watching the new series!

Yuichi Nakamura (Yuichi Jin)

I think the last series brought you many forms of fun:
sometimes it went as written in the original while at other times it unfolded differently.
What will the new series be like? You can’t wait for it.

”My side effect says so."

Nobunaga Shimazaki (Hughes)

The last series ended just as Hughes was obviously about to do something big.
Words cannot explain how happy I am about the sequel.

I will do my best to present what happened next, so you can enjoy it.
