World Trigger “TV Anime”

On July 8 of last month Toei Animation officially announced that it’s working on the upcoming TV Anime adaptation of Daisuke Ashihara’s sci-fi action manga World Trigger. Yuki Kaji, Nobuhiko Okamoto, Rie Kugimiya, Jun Fukuyama, Hideyuki Tanaka, Nao Tamura and Tomo Muranaka have been listed as cast of the TV anime adaptation to debut this October 2014.

The upcoming anime adaptation is going to be working off the manga that debuted in last year's 11th issue of Japan's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. VIZ Media added the series to its digital anthology version of Weekly Shonen Jump, and it will publish the first print volume on October 7.

Plot Summary:

Destroy thy Neighbor! A gate to another dimension has burst open, and invincible monsters called Neighbors invade Earth. Osamu Mikumo may not be the best among the elite warriors who co-opt other-dimensional technology to fight back, but along with his Neighbor friend Yuma, he’ll do whatever it takes to defend life on Earth as we know it.

The World Trigger television anime will premiere on the TV Asahi station and its affiliates in October 2014.  Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine's Jump Special Anime Festa will screen a World Trigger anime at its tour this November 2014.
