But with a feisty humanoid Neighbor named Yuma, he’ll co-opt other-dimensional technology to do whatever it takes to fight back.“In World Trigger, Mikado City will never be the same once the aliens invade and it’s up to a team of unlikely heroes armed with weapons called Triggers to defeat them and save mankind,” editor Hope Donovan said in a statement “This hugely entertaining manga series has delighted Weekly Shonen Jump fans with its fast-paced story, dynamic and relatable characters, and clean, engaging art styleThe first two volumes will be released simultaneously on Oct. 7 in print and digital editions. Subsequent volumes will be published bimonthly.
