World Trigger is undoubtedly one of the most refined anime we have seen in recent years, and coming back after a five-year hiatus, it made sure to overcome its shortcomings.
Season 1’s odd pacing and average-quality animation were responsible for the anime becoming one among the least popular Shonen Jump adaptations.
But thankfully, World Trigger has managed to recover from this to some extent with an improved sequel season. This is quite the opposite of what happened with The Seven Deadly Sins anime.
World Trigger season 2 is listed with 13 episodes on the Toei Animation US website.
The ongoing Season 2 revolves around the Galopoula invasion arc, and in the latest episode, things get even more intensified with the battle between Border and Galopoula.
As a reminder to everyone upset with this short episode order, a third season has already been announced. No further details have been revealed, but the news at least confirms that the series isn’t ending anytime soon.
Jump Festa #World Trigger Stage is over! Thank you to everyone who watched it! It was announced on the stage to make the 3rd season because it was divided into 2 cours! The 2nd season from January will be the first cour, and the broadcast time of the 3rd season will be announced at a later date.English Translation, Twitter Translate
About 80 chapters have been released since the events of Season 1. This ensures that Season 3 still has plenty of stories to adapt. And hopefully, the upcoming episodes will draw a larger audience towards this excellent yet underrated series.
For now, Toei Animation is focusing on its Virtual Global Fan Event to celebrate the spectacular return of World Trigger. Check out the article below to know every detail regarding the event.
