@takashichea:

Cat girls? There no cat girls in World Trigger, there is a cat that happen to be on a girl head. (but no cat girl)

Any who, I hope the anime do well. I don't want it turning out like Toriko

@Destinyheroknight:

My mistake, I used the Akame ga Kill template for World Trigger and forgot to change the genre. Thank you for pointing it out.

@takashichea:

No problem, it kind of catch me off guard LOL! But you kind of right, there is a cat and girl

Maybe, in the future they will combine into a cat girl as a power up :)

Nice

@Destinyheroknight: So can you explain the plot of the show to me?

@takashichea: @waybig1010101:

The plot is about Yuma who is a dimension alien call Neighbor, he came to earth to find his Father's old friend. But the plot revolve more on Osamu Mikumo, who is a Border member. It pretty much them defending the city against other Neighbors and fighting off other Border members

Hmm, well World Trigger is a battle shonen combine with a sport shonen manga. It battle are focus on strategy then raw power, a well time strategy can beat a hex character. The series able to use it side characters effectively and don't make them seem useless.

I think it a pretty good shonen, the start will kind of drag but it get better around chapter 10 (A little to lot for my taste LOL!)

I hope that explain it to you, I not that at explaining sometimes

@Destinyheroknight: @waybig1010101:

A battle sport manga sounds like Kuroko's Basketball. I probably wait for the anime in October then read the manga since I'm more of an anime fan.

Thanks, DHK.

@waybig1010101:

Heh, I already knew you were a manga fan more than an anime fan based on your interests in the forums.

@takashichea: really i picture that i had a pretty decent balance of both lol. It really does depend but if possible i would read and watch or i will watch and then read cause as you know some anime don't end and they leave you to go read the manga to finish up the story.

Oh October 5th? I better commit to editing a few pages like I promised. However in my opinion, it's entirely too early. It's even younger than Nanatsu no Taizai if I'm not mistaken. I think it'll get the Claymore/Beelzebub treatment, getting cancelled in 6 months to one year whether it's well received or not because there wont be enough content unless it has One Piece level drag or Naruto level filler. After that, it will depend on how well it sells regarding whether or not the manga itself will continue long after.

Pilot was front loaded with a lot of world build an less trigger. Not bad tho. Hope it develops a bit better. Tho as a glasses wearer every time they said four eyes an it was a drinking game I would be drunk now. Well probably not but still that seemed to be used more than even neighbors.

I discovered the series was streamed on Crunchyroll. World Trigger's pilot was interesting but it wasn't impressive. It felt like an average Shonen show. The enemies that were called Neighbors is a bit strange for me. I'm used to Bleach's Hollows, D. Gray-Man's Akuma, etc. I'll give this series another try with the 2nd episode.

@Destinyheroknight: Just wanted to let you know I'll be game to help with world Trigger in a few days. I'm just a little behind so I can still edit some characters if that'd help

@Marshal Victory:

You going to die LOL!

Anyway, I found it to be meh. The episode was so disappointing, it bring a tear to my eye. But I do like how they make the Neighbors otherworldly

@taichokage:

That will help a tons, I been falling behind with the Wiki

@Destinyheroknight: Yeah good thing I dont drink or I would be. Kidneys are at 50% function as is an a drinking game to that show would probably have me assume room temp fairly fast me thinks. Meh or not bad is fairly close for me. If it does not improve It will be dropped by me at least. My anime list this season has grown not shrunk unlike other seasons.

Odd thing about this series is I read the manga does well an many were looking forward to this. It may have been the front loading of world build that threw it off?
