World Trigger Manga Gets Commemorative Video for Upcoming Anime

posted on by Karen Ressler

Shonen Jump's official YouTube Channel began streaming a promotional video for Daisuke Ashihara's World Trigger manga on Monday commemorating the upcoming anime adaptation.

The official website also updated with a more detailed cast list. Jun Fukuyama will play Kyōsuke Karasuma, Nobuhiko Okamoto will play Jun Arashiyama, and Rie Kugimiya will play Kirie Konami.

The official website previously announced the cast members without specifying their roles, but later clarified some of the characters:

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.

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!

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