North American publisher Viz Media announced in Monday's issue of its Weekly Shonen Jump digital anthology that it will add Daisuke Ashihara's World Trigger manga starting with next week's issue.
Viz Media describes the series as follows:
Weekly Shonen Jump's newest series is out of this world! A gate to another dimension has burst open, and from it emerge gigantic invincible creatures that threaten all of humanity. Earth's only defense is a mysterious group of warriors who have co-opted the alien technology in order to fight back!
World Trigger will also debut in this year's 11th issue of Japan's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, which will ship in Japan this Saturday. The first chapter will include color pages and will be 54-pages long.
Ashihara previously wrote the four-volume Kashikoi Inu Lilienthal manga in Japan's Weekly Shonen Jump from 2009-2010.
Viz's digital Weekly Shonen Jump magazine premiered the English version of the full-color Dragon Ball manga by Akira Toriyama in today's issue.
