Daisuke Ashihara's sci-fi action manga about those who defend Earth from interdimensional creatures

Shueisha and Viz Media announced on Tuesday that Daisuke Ashihara's World Trigger manga is getting a television anime adaptation.

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 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.

Ashihara previously wrote the four-volume Kashikoi Ken Rilienthal manga in Japan's Weekly Shonen Jump from 2009 to 2010.
