Toei Animation premiered the first three English-dubbed episodes at Anime Expo last July, and posted a promotional video in August. Toei Animation itself commissioned the English dub of the first six to seven episodes.
The first World Trigger television anime season from Toei Animation premiered in October 2014, followed by a second season in October 2015. The series ended earlier this month with 73 episodes in total.
Toei Animation describes the anime story:
World Trigger begins when a mysterious gate to another world is opened in Mikado City, letting invaders from another dimension called "Neighbors" overrun the area.
A new defense league called "Border" is created in order to protect the City from these apparitions. The fighters are equipped with an amazing weapon called "Trigger" allowing them to put on an armor and use special powers.
The story takes place four years after those events, when a young student, Yuma Kuga, arrives at Mikado City. He witnesses, along with another student Osamu Mikuno, a portal opening. To fight the creature, Osamu finds himself forced to reveal his affiliation to the Border and pulls his Trigger out. When Osamu is injured, Yuma joins the fight and saves him. Yuma turns out to be very powerful!
Who is really Yuma? Why did he come to Mikado City?
Daisuke Ashihara's original World Trigger manga debuted in 2013'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 also publishes the manga in print.
