World Trigger Season 2 has been a huge improvement over its long and oddly-paced first season. It seems the franchise isn’t wasting any time before they go one step further with a Season 3.
The production team of World Trigger has understood the essence of quality over quantity; maybe that’s why they shifted from a 70-episode season to shorter seasons covering a single cour.
On Sunday, the World Trigger franchise revealed on Anime Japan 2021 that Season 3 of the anime will premiere in October 2021.
#World Trigger 3rd season will be broadcast on TV Asahi series from October 2021! Stay tuned for the 3rd season broadcast!

- Screenshot 1 previews a fight between Ko Murakami and Kageura. The #4 attacker is trying to slice Kageura with his sword. It’s probably the final match of B-rank wars – Kageura squad vs. Murakami squad vs. Tamakoma.
- In Screenshot 2, Chika Amatori is looking depressed with a cup of hot drinks in her hands. She is probably worried because they are about to fight Kageura’s and Murakami’s team next. As we already know, they nearly lost to Murakami and lost to Kageura the last time.
- In Screenshot 3, Yūma Kuga and Chika Amatori are seen in their combat suits, and they are ready for the last battle of the B-rank wars against their potential opponents.
The screenshots suggest that our cute little Chika will be playing an important role in the upcoming season, and there will be a face-off between Ko and Kageura.
In the latest episode, Eizo commented that Hyuse is willing to guide their ship, and they would have taken him as a captive without letting him into Border.
Things are pretty intense now, and fans are looking forward to the final episode of Season 2 that will premiere on April 11.
As we all can already predict, Season 2 will leave us in the middle of the arc, and I can’t wait to find the outcome of the B-Rank Wars in Season 3.
